Re: Sequential Bought by Focusrite

I think he'll likely just enjoy his time by designing/developing new products, and without the day to day hassles of having to run a company.

I don't think he'll retire completely, I think he enjoys what he does...

Re: Help identifying difference is E-Mu Procussion models

Yep, they redid the case/externals to other similar modules too, like the Pro/formance piano module in later revisions...

Re: A nice website for gear addicts

It might be better if you marked Pete Townshend as a GUITARIST... unless of course he overdubbed all of John Entwhistle's bass parts and we don't know about it ;) Sorry yeah, my bad, was just a hypothetical off the top of my head to illustrate a point (he's not currently in my DB). But you get my p...

Re: 8 / 12 bit samplers?

Casio RZ-1, Zoom ST-224, Korg DDD-1, Korg DDD-5 Korg DDD-5 didn't sample, and the DDD-1 did, but only with the optional sample board... There's also the RSF-SD140, the SP12/SP1200, Linn 9000, SCI Studio 440 that spring to mind... Then of course there was the EPROM machines where you could burn samp...

Re: Roland D50 Reverb Types

This is heavy stuff. Just for the craic, I'm going to see if I can get the Roland Cloud D50 to generate an impulse signal, and make an IR of each reverb. So, the D50 has different 17-32 banks for the Preset bank, and each of the four Roland Card banks. I don't know if there were ever any third-part...

Re: A nice website for gear addicts

the inability of people to use search networks in 2021 is more of a problem for them than a problem of website optimization. Sure, but part of the task of computer systems is solve problems for people to empower them without requiring them to learn complicated procedures. After all, you cannot put ...

Anyone with thoughts on the TGX450 YAMAHA. Adding the demos?
I don't think that's a vintage sampler. It looks like a motorbike.

Re: Roland D50 Reverb Types

So, it seems the plugin does indeed bake in Reverb Types 17-32, and doesn't support custom reverb types as such. For instance, the main five D50 card banks all have some different/edited reverb types. When you load these into an editor, like D50 Librarian, it will show you the reverb types, their ed...

Roland D50 Reverb Types

I'm trying to figure out the D50's handling of Reverb Types, and it's quite confusing (especially without a real one to check the behaviour). The modern versions of the D50 (V-Synth, Plugin etc) generally have Reverb types 1-32 (non-editable) to choose from. (I don't think they support custom reverb...

Re: A nice website for gear addicts

Generally, a search engine works great if you enter the correct search term. If your query is incorrect, then you will not find the necessary information in the search results and you might think that the problem is in the search engine, and not in the correctness of the query. It's a problem, beca...

It's exactly what i said. I know. And it results in a poor experience. Anyway, you missed the point of the website I'm aware of the point of the website, and already said there are other long-established sites that already do this.

Re: A nice website for gear addicts

Most musicians can make music on any instrument, to varying degrees. It doesn’t make Dave Gilmore a drummer, Phil Collins a bass player or Howard Jones a saxophonist. If I say “show me keyboard players” and I get pictures of 50 guitarists, all notable guitar players and pictured playing the guitar, ...
