    Hardware or Software Synth?

    Maybe software for composing or sequencing and then otherwise Hardware. If you can't afford vintage there's Behringer. Maybe somewhat disposable, but at 1/3 -1/10 price...

    Klark-Teknik KT-2A Users

    Anyone here using one? So just picked one of these up pre-modded. (More expensive tubes (!) and the Kenetek T4B) Always wanted an optical comp (built the EPFM one, but have never put it in a case) Just looking for input on setting it up. Haven't tried it out yet. The output meter has a +10dB...

    Printing Threads - HOWTO?????

    don't see that as an option. Same thing happened at GroupDIY (which is worse there are actual "Build Threads" there) and Diyaudio

    Printing Threads - HOWTO?????

    So, a long while ago, when the user interface was different you could click on a "print thread" or a "thread view" icon, and well, print an entire thread. That feature seems to have been 'Upgraded' away, with a prettier, but less functional interface. Any way to do that? It's a right pain in...

    SOLVED: Yamaha TX802: "Trap Error!" (WTF is it and how do I fix it?)

    Upgraded firmware to 1.5. No more Trap Error! (Still having trouble with DX-Manager, but that's a different issue now)

    Are MIDI controller keyboards any good?

    I have a Kurzweil Mk III. I bought it to relearn how to play 22 years ago, and it had the most realistic action and a decent sound. I also have a Nektar LX25+ that's for farting around with on vacation and a M-Audio 61 something or other. That was to tide me over until the ARP gets back from the...

    SOLVED: Yamaha TX802: "Trap Error!" (WTF is it and how do I fix it?)

    Yeah. I'm going to pick up my ARP from the shop sometime this week, and I'll ask the dude there about it. I did buy the latest firmware ROM from a guy on Ebay, current version is 1.1 latest is 1.5. That should come in about a week or so. (Hopefully, thanks Vlad....)

    SOLVED: Yamaha TX802: "Trap Error!" (WTF is it and how do I fix it?)

    I saw that, thanks. Also got a response on the DX-7II/TX802 FB group explaining a trap error from a computer software perspective. I'm going to hook back the Delta 2496/ WinXP box and see if I get the consistent trap error from the DAW transport stopping. I said above, but now I can't recall if...

    SOLVED: Yamaha TX802: "Trap Error!" (WTF is it and how do I fix it?)

    Thanks. I tried that. Also, eliminated everything but the TX802 so Kurzweil > Behringer Uphoria > TX802 same issue. Also, with a M-Audio Keystation directly connected to the TX802. "Trap Error!"

    SOLVED: OT: Yamaha TX802 "Trap Error!" Any idea WTF this is?

    I know it's off topic, but folks here tend to know more of the technical side of things. Can't play this with a MIDI keyboard (get that error). Can use it with a MIDI interface and can play it, but it will crash to that error after. e.g. you stop the recording on the DAW. (Using Cakewalk) this...

    SOLVED: Yamaha TX802: "Trap Error!" (WTF is it and how do I fix it?)

    TX802. plays fine through MIDI. However, once you record a sequence and stop recording, it gives "Trap Error!" and won't respond. Requiring a power cycle. This is with two different MIDI interfaces Win 10, Behringer Uphoria, latest Cakewalk by Bandlab -or- WinXP, Delta 2496, Cakewalk 9 MIDI...

    Hardware or Software Synth?

    Prices on "the real thing" are outrageous, or even the Korg FS 2600. But if you consider the cost of an interface (US$200?) and say the Arturia 2600 (US$150) vs the Berhinger 2600 (US$600) you're really not doing that much better in software for the sacrifice of having actual knobs/sliders.
