Re: Yamaha RM50 manager (voice editor and rhythm kit editor)

The bug that javelin276 described is the one I have previously mentioned and it's the reason why I haven't yet published the Windows version of the RM50 Manager with MIDI IN enabled. The strange thing is that exactly the same code for the Windows MIDI IN subroutine works fine in the JDXI Manager (ed...

Re: Apples and oranges? Hardware and Software

Use the best of both worlds: run a MIDI sequencer on your PC (this doesn't use up many resources and software sequencers are more flexible and powerful than any on-board workstation sequencer ever will be) that controls hardware synths connected via MIDI. Your 5 year old computer will be able to cop...

Re: Looking for drums

I wouldn't be using the SY/TG77 for drums either, drums are definitely not one of their strong points.

A Yamaha RM50 would be a much better choice for drums and it makes a nice companion to the SY/TG77. :)

I have started a new thread about the JD-Xi now as here we are slightly off-topic. ;)

Pro's and Con's of the Roland JD-Xi

Here is a good video that sums it up, for me the pro's definitely prevail which is why I bought one the day they became available over 2 years ago (and still own it and use it a lot): uUB9QDhwFZI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUB9QDhwFZI And here is a great track made entirely with the JD-Xi with ...

Re: KORG Minilogue

Well if you didn't like the FA keybed, then you definitely won't like the JD-Xi keybed. But as I said the keybed of the JD-Xi should be merely seen as a means to enter notes into the step sequencer (or to play a few chords for real time recording into the sequencer), not as a live performance keyboa...

Re: KORG Minilogue

Would absolutely LOVE a JD-Xi! Wonder if Roland would like to "lend" me one for a while ;) DIdn't you already have a FA-06 or 08 on loan? The Supernatural synth engine of the JD-Xi is the same as the FA (actually on the FA you have more multi-timbrality), so you should already have a good idea how ...

Re: KORG Minilogue

I'm more your lush pads and cinematic type of person Me too, that's why I'm in love with the Roland JD-Xi, it's packed with Roland's famous lushness for a price that I couldn't resist. The Minilogue OTOH leaves me cold, quite literally as I find that it sounds rather cold and harsh most of the time.

Re: The Cat Thread

I'm sorry to hear that Miks. I can understand how you feel, when out cat did not come back home one day we were very affected by it too, luckily in our case she came back after 3 days, totally starved and shaken, somebody must have accidentally locked her in a garage or shed.

Re: R.I.P Robert Miles

I was sad too when I heard this, his melodic trance tracks got me interested in trance music and mid 90's to early 2000's trance is still my favourite type music (of course I like other music too, but I keep going back to trance from that period). OTOH I can't stand trance music from the last 10 yea...

Re: A little MORE of this Sh1t, anyone?

Sorry, I just don't buy the argument that you must stick together just because there are children about (and use money as the blocker). I didn't say "must stick together" but only make divorce with children harder (not impossible) and also I didn't say money should be a blocker but that it shouldn'...

Re: A little MORE of this Sh1t, anyone?

So broken homes may be a cause in some cases, but not all. Of course in your case (and in any other comparable case) divorce was the far lesser evil, there is no question about that, but on the other hand there are many divorces that only happen because the woman is 'bored' and she knows she'll be ...

Re: A little MORE of this Sh1t, anyone?

It's not so much the lack of discipline, it's the lack of a father role for way too many children growing up without a father that causes lack of respect for authority. Too many broken families caused by way too much bias in favour of women during divorce proceedings. Divorce should be the very last...
