Does anyone know if there are any modern devices that do the same thing as the Roland SD-35 MIDI player? It was a great piece of hardware for playing general MIDI files. If not, what is the best way to play GM files via a Windows laptop with a good quality sound module?
Well here is unit that may sound great, but the build quality is really not ideal. This monster ate a lot of time, but with a complete re-caping and few transistor replacements and relaped heads its looking up for this classic machine.
I am looking into buying a Roland Tm-2 but am a little confused about which cords I need to get to make my intended trigger setup work.
I intend to use a Roland PD-8 Dual Drum pad, a mono snare trigger, and a mono bass drum trigger.
Hi, i`ve done some recording on the 1880 and plan to do more . I`m not very techy and it took a long time to learn how to use this machine - I still have a lot to learn - but i`m happy to just be able to put tracks down and mix o.k. creating a decent soundscape . However, once played back on c.d. it sounds o.k.
Does anyone know of any sample pad devices that I can connect to my SP-404sx. The idea is to use this sample pad to trigger sounds from the SP-404sx.
The sample pad doesn't need to have the capacity to hold sounds, it just needs to be able to be used to control the SP404s pads via MIDI.
Ive seen the Sp404 controlled by MIDI here:
came across this while I'm watching tutorials on BFD and a bunch of others. I can totally 'live with this' level of realism and quality lol. The snare roll articulations are remarkable imo. Maybe I've just getting tricked by excitement on my part or hype of my speakers or the video.
I came across this link while perusing the interweb of some Roland TR-808 samples through a Fairchild 670.
The Fairchild is the only one in Australia located at Studios 301 in Sydney, my home town, and undoubtedly the greatest city in the world...;)
The link takes you to the Studios 301 site which has a request download link button to download the sample pack.
1. Can I use the api 205 direct input module as a stand alone input?.. Granted i buy the chasse with the power supply... will turning down the input level of the VS2480, and turning up the gain on the api 205L be super effective? or not.
