Re: Nice article on 24-bit mythology

Advertisers are always on the lookout for ways to mislead the unwary . . . The "BIGGER NUMBERS" are better, syndrome . . . . Most famously the PMPO scam. (Peak Music Power Output). This "allows" figures to be in the High Hundreds of Watts. It represents power drawn (VERY momentarily) from the highes...

Re: Replacement battery for Alesis Fusion

Generally, the Fusion will suddenly not know what day it is . . . . Date and time will be gone, and there will probably be garbage in the display . . . . You'll need to do a master reset (to begin with) and then go through the settings you may have altered (in the <Global> section), and restore them...

Re: Chicken Systems Translator for Fusion

So I'm wondering just how well Chicken Systems Translator or Creator works for the Fusion. I think Jesse has Translator . . . . The original Fusion CONVERTER , does work - in as much as I made a bank for the Fusion from my own samples. It was rather simple however - a series of one-shot vocal "phra...

Re: 32 track, 16 channel sequencer. How does that export?

Oh I don't know about that. The MIDI Manufacturers Association just ratified the addition of MPE (Midi polyphonic expression) so Roli's, Linnstruments, Eigenharps and so on will actually have a future instead of relying on their own proprietary approaches. Once again, the industry is working togeth...

Re: CC automation?

ers can be recorded in top of already existing notes in overdub mode so you can get rather elaborate with your own modulations without needing 6 hands. I suppose there must be some sophisticated Maths in there if you are overdubbing controller activity on top of existing data - so that simultaneous...

Re: CC automation?

Thanks Chris. Finding anything in the manual is a task. Absolutely. It's size and weight promises much, but it's little more than a list of menu items. SOME pages have grey panels of text to enhance some of the descriptions - which are helpful. Sadly, the rest are largely unexplained. What was REAL...

Re: 32 track, 16 channel sequencer. How does that export?

Indeed. I think it is fair to say that a purpose-built GM Module WILL make a better stab at THIS file. It asks a LOT of questions . . . . Just goes to show HOW ADVANCED Midi 1.0 was back then - and how capable . . . It demonstrates WELL what can be achieved when the GIANTS put their heads together w...

Re: CC automation?

Hmm . . . Perhaps page 120 in the REFERENCE Manual explains . . . There are check boxes to include in/out certain data from being recorded . . . . perhaps <controllers> or <other> include the knobs you mention. There is ANOTHER setting somewhere, that enables/disables the various controls in the MIX...

Re: Form over function, that encoder knob!

The other problem is that the actual hole for the shaft is recessed within the knob. If that is too deep, then you can't get the knob to stay on the shaft or it sits too deep in the recessed area and you can't get a grip on it. The knob needs to rise far enough above the ring of buttons so it can b...

Re: Form over function, that encoder knob!

I didn't mind the original knob too much - It kinda goes with the quirky look, don't you think?

But I must say that THAT replacement looks very good also.

I like the knurling on the outside, for positive grip.

Re: Just discovered that nasty MIDI bug. Ouch! :-(

With MIDI Clock Tx On Bartok had my Fusion going nuts within a few minutes. It's easy to test. Once the buffering has gone into broken mode you can press stop on the sequence and strange slow extended notes will continue to play and if you have a module connected with a MIDI in activity LED it will...
