DX7II with Grey Matter questions

Post by Synthabator » Wed Jul 12, 2017 6:24 am

1. How the h**l do I play into my sequencer (MSQ700) different patches? They all are same sound. The E! Card should have provided multimberal. There has to be a way to turn it on if you will in the E card.

Oh golly. That seemed to confuse matters even more so. lol

Someone needs to write a ipad program that puts up a visual simplification of its features. Oh. Vey.

Especially so.. ;)

Yamaha crimes to sanity in the 80s include the QX1, RX5, TX16W... well, most things with an "X" weren't exactly case studies in accessibility, really..!

Yes. They totally killed the TX16W with their OS. Then Typhoon came along, probably best sampler OS ever.

I remember reading somewhere that Yamaha "philosophers" felt that instruments were supposed to be hard to play. Ergo the "gift" of Yammy madness.
(Maybe put the E card in SE!quencer mode?)

I have yet to try "SE!quencer mode" as I assumed it was their onboard sequencer rather than out to an external sequencer. Maybe Ill try this. I have yet to get this working. I may annex the MSQ and just do Auria on an iPad. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:
