Re: NGD Pacifica 112M

Fantastic replies there John. Plenty of detail :)

I would take a Pacifica over a Fender Strat any day. I think it's a better guitar in all respects.

Re: NGD Pacifica 112M

Just an observation but I assume you didn't pay much for the guitar itself? Only with the amount of mods you have in mind I think you could have probably bought something further up the range that would give you everything in one very neat package. Of course there is the satisfaction of modding a gu...

Re: Saying hello

Welcome to the forum John.

The Pacifica 112M is a great guitar. Very interested to see what you will be doing with it :)

Re: Big Ben chimes

Yeah it sounds to me like another excuse for some company no doubt owned by a friend of a friend of a member of parliament or minister to get a cash cow job for the next four years. It tells you so much about the people in charge that they don't understand what an iconic part of our capital Big Ben ...

Re: Rare guitar for sale

Thanks Bill

Judging by the Cash Converters sticker it's definitely not going for more than £199 ;)

It's quite an interesting shape. Worth keeping an eye on but as you mentioned on your page Bill it is generally not an expensive guitar. Possible bargain there for someone.

Re: TX7 slight buzzing noise

TX802 "might" be better. I think they cleaned up the outputs a little but it is essentially a DX7II. Since you already have the TX7 have you thought about a TG-77? You still have the FM but in a more user friendly package plus you get the AWM thrown in. Tech is more advanced than the TX7 so more sou...

Re: TX7 slight buzzing noise

Certainly a possibility that the op amps are failing given the age of the TX7 but would be a bit of a coincidence for it to happen on both units at the same time. That points to the patch or patches in use then. Perhaps it's a case of our listening environment improving over the years so we hear thi...

Re: TX7 slight buzzing noise

Welcome to the forum :) Not sure what this could be. I have had similar experiences in the past but they were due to signal path and extraneous to the keyboard/module itself. Any other electronics near by that the TX7 might be picking up noise from? Have you tried re-loading the factory sounds to se...

Re: Motif 6 won't boot up.

Hope what Chris suggested helped but if not I would probably leave it unplugged for at least 24hrs with the power switch 'on' Remember to turn it to OFF before you plug it in again of course! Keyboards are a bit like computers and if as happened in your case the power cuts on boot it can lead to une...

Re: Tyros and mic combine to give horrible sound mix!

I think Chris has covered the options there. I would go down the small mixer route myself as it gives you a lot of flexibility for very little outlay. You can get a decent mixer for £50 or even less if you look on Ebay. Thing to decide is are you going to want to use it with a computer or will it al...

Re: "End Credits Promotions" . . . . .

And they really wonder why people download stuff illegally? Spot the clue...no adverts perhaps? Ok that's not entirely the reason but it is a factor. That plus the ridiculous limits on what can be shown where and when. If your paying a subscription to a streaming service or satellite tv then you sho...

Ahh yes forgot about the broadband thing Derek. Seems like that has been going on for years! No doubt BT not keen to lose their cash cow of copper lines providing crap service and customers having no choice.

Re: "End Credits Promotions" . . . . .

That's another thing. Ever noticed how when the adverts come on, if you switch channels the adverts are also showing on those channels? They know what we are going to do so they collude to make sure we still see the advertising. Targeted advertising I don't mind. Advertise a guitar, keyboard of musi...
