Re: ChickenSys . . . . .

Hi Arevyn, Did you remember to set the <Programs> check box in the <Placements> tab in the AutoSampler? page 33/34 in the Manual Here, you set the number of programs in the Bank on the CP33 you want to sample . . . If it's >1, AutoSampler will send a program change . . . . You'll need to make sure t...

Re: Current Thoughts (2018)

Yeah, - the Fusion IS kinda special for sure (as we know :wink: ). . . . . but, as you observe, the 8HD is heavy . . . . Add a Hard Flight case - and it's even heavier . . . . :roll: Take a look at the Yamaha MOXF8. That's 88 keys, Piano action, and is MUCH lighter ~14Kg IIRC Sounds are taken from t...

Re: Ordered my "backup" Fusion :-)

Glad to hear that it's come through - and you are largely happy . . . . The end pieces are generally very robust - unless they have actually got broken . . . The sheet metal can usually be gently bent back to where it should be . . . . My 6HD had a bent corner on the lid, due to the final screwhead ...

Re: Ordered my "backup" Fusion :-)

That is NOT good. I had heard about two different keybeds, but not the detail . . . Last time I looked at Fatar's site, I thought it dreadful, with precious little info about anything much . . . WHICH keybed is which would be good to know? One ASSUMES they would be interchangeable . . . . A pity, as...

Re: Ordered my "backup" Fusion :-)

Black Keys only - that's annoying. Not come across that before. It IS possible to put the top back on "badly" (The rear of the Keyboard aperture in the lid, interfering with the keys), perhaps, as the black keys DO stand proud from the White, they may be suffering . . . . . . ? As you say the Memory...

Re: Replacement battery for Alesis Fusion

Hmm . . ..

That remains an unknown to me, as I've never needed to change the battery yet on either of mine . . . .

I'll try and find out about that . . .

Re: Ordered my "backup" Fusion :-)

The 8HD was my first - and has the best hammer-action kebed I've ever played on any Synth - and I've tried a few . . . Every bit as expressive as my baby grand Piano . . . The 6HD also has a great synth-type keybed . . . I can readjust to it in a couple of minutes from the 8HD. . . What's really coo...

Re: Replacement battery for Alesis Fusion

Not so Far . . . . I don't think the Fusion is old enough yet :lol: Some of the older Yamahas I come across in the YamahaMusicians forum are getting 25 years out of a CR2032/2025 before they go "undervoltage" and start loosing their settings and garbling the display . . . . I guess boards are differ...

Re: Replacement battery for Alesis Fusion

All true . . . When closing it - its important to get the lid correct at the BACK, before closing down the front. Namely, make sure you can SEE the holes the screws go into . . . . The end cheeks seem to need to flex a bit to get them to snap in correctly. This always seem to need "jiggling" Also im...

Re: Cheap I/O board replacement with 8 analog outputs!

That's very interesting, 2ManyKeys . . . . I have actually recorded (My) vocals on the Fusion and it produces a very good clean result . . .. I used an inexpensive Monacor MPR-6 mic preamp, and an SM58 Mic. It's a shame they didn't include Mic/Line switching there . . . . I've never needed to record...

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...
