Yamaha PLG 150 DX replaces DX7

Postby sol-bass-rec » Sat Jun 07, 2014 11:22 pm

So got my hands on the PLG 150 AN and I'm wondering if someone can tell me about the DX and XG cards.

Does the DX do the job and replicate the DX7 well? Is it close?
I'm guessing I will have more options with the card in the newer board vs. The DX7.

Saving room for a mono and I think I'm doing it right?

Also what is great about the XG. 920 presets is crazy cool.

I know this CS6X has remained in a lot of hands and questioned many times but at $500 a card, I'm only going to get one card. DX or XG????

Unless someone has some others for sale?

The PLG150-DX actually is a DX7-II engine because it lets you do the unison layering trick (reduces polyphony to 4 voices by stacking 4 voices). Since it uses the D/A conversion in the host synth, it's quieter than a first gen DX7 too.

The XG card is intended as a voice expansion for GM (or XG) sequencing, adds 32 voices as I recall. Probably the least interesting of all the PLG cards.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.
