Sorry guys, but for some inexplicable reason, the poll feature suddenly stopped working. I'm still waiting for a response from the forum software writers.

Sorry for the inconvenience. I'll drop everyone an email when it's back up & running.

Regards

Paul

Hi All,

I can't vote either. So in the meantime I'll tell you this.

I heard that England had recently approved the use of Viagra and that the first container shipment had come in but it was stolen at the airport. The next day I heard that Scotland yard had put out a special alert for the public to be on the lookout for a gang of hard criminals.

Hi Paul,

Yup, I can't see where to cast a vote either - anyway I'll hang in.

I'm pretty much in the same camp as Del, self-taught, playing/singing mainly cover tunes with the odd original thrown in now and again.

I'm in the middle of an interesting project right now where I discovered some old tapes of groups I was in dating as far back as 1959. So I'm in the process of loading these into my Adobe Audition software, cleaning them up (but not adding anything) and then burning them to CD for posterity. Mind you, some of these tapes are in pretty fragile condition having been stashed away in boxes for all those years. But I'm pretty chuffed about all this. I know this is outside the domain of an arranger forum, but I just HAD to tell ya anyway.

Hi Paul,

I appreciate the email note to remind me to vote. I'll do so soon as the function is restored. I have been inactive on the forum, for no reason in particular, except perhaps that I am busy with oil painting and have not been doing anything with my keyboards, except to play along with ipod songs and do ocassional "quick record" kinds of things. In the past, especially on SVP I was much more active. I've got to hand it to you. You have done a wonderful job with this forum and I'm happy to see some of the old hands in the posts that come up.

I have to tell you, my Motif XS6 is wonderful. I still use my Tyros but now find myself letting the Tyros do a style, me making chords with the left hand , while I play the Motif underneath with my right hand and pick from the vast array of juicy voices. The only way to post songs in this manner would be to do a direct analog out instead of a midi. Can't correct bum notes this way, thats the bad part.

I find myself playing back many of the great uploads by members. The Tyros has a hard disk containing many songs done by so many good forum friends.

I guess it's time to have a go at uploading again. I did a thing by Delbert Mc Clinton, a country western guy who's cut lots of albums, performed at the Austin City Limits in Texas. Soon as I clean it up.

Best regards my friend,

Tom

Hi All,
I'm sorry for joining and not posting but my computer had to be re-formatted and so I haven't re-installed my sequencing software and all the other goodies I use to create songs. I need an external hard drive 'cause all the music my son and I do was putting too much of a strain on my desktop. So as soon as I get over the financial crunch and get my hard drive, I will gladly upload some of our stuff. BTW, I really like the forum, too.

Hi Tom
As you know I have the same set-up so this is how I connect the 2 machines.
Connect the Audio-out of the Motif to the Audio-in of the Tyros. Connect the Midi-out of the Tyros to the Midi-in of the Motif . Set the Tyros up [function/midi/transmit] so that R1 is midied to the Motif. This means that you can have R1 as a Motif voice,R2 & R3 as a Tyros voice and the LH/Style from the Tyros but you only need to play the Tyros.
However you are still faced with the problem of recording as a midi, you've probably foundout that the Tyros does not recognise the MSB,LSB and Prog Ch numbers of the Motif so although you can record the Tyros voices the Motif defaults to a piano voice in the Tyros. The only way to go is to record audio from the Motif over audio on the Tyros.
If you've found another way please let me know
I will be recording my songs through a Fostex 16 track recorder so they'll always be audio.
Cheers
Spike

Absolutely! We decided early on not to limit the site to just Yamaha players. If you enjoy making music, and also enjoy listening to others' efforts, then you'll always be welcome here.

It's always good to compare notes with players of other keyboards. I'd totally lost touch with keyboard technology, until getting my Tyros 2 last summer. I'd previously stumbled on a site that had some T2 demos, and I was blown away with the quality. I made it my intention not to listen to any other keyboard, as I knew I'd then be faced with multiple choices/decisions, so stuck with the T2 from the off. These days, I have a clearer idea of what I want from a keyboard, although I'd never part with the T2.

What model of Roland k/b have you gone for, and what influenced your buying decision?

Cheers

Paul
