Re: Yamaha THR models

Thanks for all that info Peter :)

I'm still pondering on whether a THR-5A would be of any real use to me. I have the KRK RP5 active monitors and bother Guitar Rig 5 and Amplitube 4 so is there any real point in me getting a THR?

Re: Fixing My SY77

Well you definitely have a bit of a project on your hands there Daryl! It's worth the effort though because as you know the SY77 is a fantastic keyboard and a fully working one would be a pleasure to play and create with. There is no getting away from the fact that your going to need to strip it dow...

Re: Roland FA07 Review

By the way, Roland have said the FA07 should be with me by Tuesday or Wed at the latest. Very keen to find out how those keys feel because if they are really good they will definitely have a winner on their hands. My only major criticism of the FA06 was the keys.

Re: Roland FA07 Review

I rather think that Genos is blurring the lines between Arranger and Montage. I have seen a fair bit of it recently and it certainly has that 'pro' synth feel to it. There is going to be a merging of formats at some point, perhaps Genos is it.

Re: YouTube , now what ?

Your right Peter. Changing it knocked out all previous clips so I have reverted to the old 'youtube' tag and changed the new one to 'youtube2' again.

Will have to edit a few vids posted since then but better than losing all the previous ones.

Re: Roland FA07 Review

So your definitely getting on ok with the Montage? It does have it's little foibles but it wouldn't be 'Yamaha' without them ;) Very interested to see what they have done with the Genos as I have a feeling that could be a perfect cross-over between synth and arranger. Certainly looks the part from w...

Re: Roland FA07 Review

Perhaps though things are changing..a little anyway. Roland and Yamaha have recently come out with 76 note versions their keyboards in the FA07 and Montage and also let's not forget Yamaha also brought out a 76 note version of the the Tyros. The new Genos will also come with a 76 note option. Of cou...

Re: THR 10 headphones issue

I spoke to Yamaha about this and they said that all headphones are suitable for use with the THR so there should be no issues at all with the the Beyerdynamic DT-770 PRO.

Re: Simon and Garfunkel - with a twist . . .

That's Don Caron as Art Garfunkel and Paul Simon is played by Linda Gower. Lyrics were written by Don Caron. And yes it does indeed say it all. Quite how we ended up in this situation I really cannot understand. However it does bring to mind a film called 'Idiocracy' http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0387...

Re: Roland FA07 Review

Just did a quick Google for 76 note controller keyboards and discovered there is/was the Fatar Studiologic VMK176 Plus which looks like an interesting board. https://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/fatar-studiologic-vmk176-plus Don't think there are many of those about these days.

Re: THR 10 headphones issue

Hi JoeV and a later welcome to the forum ;) Don't have a THR myself but many on the forum do. Sometimes the new post notification doesn't work so they may not have actually noticed your post hence no answers. Anyway, as far as I am aware any standard headphones should work fine with the THR and cert...

Re: Roland FA07 Review

It's an odd thing but I guess they are thinking most people buying controllers are studio based. A 76 note semi-weighted keyboard seems to be ideal for the gigging musician and these days software is incredibly reliable so perhaps it's time one of the big names, Native Instruments, Akai, Novation et...

Re: Roland FA07 Review

It's incredible what companies like Novation can pack into a controller keyboard. This is why they are now so popular. Keep the actual sound engine in your computer, where it's vastly more powerful and then use a good quality but inexpensive controller to do the rest :) No sign of the FA07 unfortuna...
