Gary, even you can't believe the vocal harmonizer in the Yamahas is worth a hoot. Actually, that's kind of what it sounds like, a hoot. Why it even interrupts the lead voice as you engage or disengage it.
You're just USED to that thing and are intimately familiar with it. Sorta like a wife.
Mine is better than yours. NOT the wife, the keyboard.

i wonder why Yamaha didnt include a Vocal harmony Demo in the new Tyros 4 Demo...you would think with 50 demos in a row at least one would be to show off the VH?

Don,

I merely posted in response to Fran's obvious attempt to start another pissin' contest. Hence my reference to being a "Dumb-assed thread." I've always considered the Yamaha onboard vocal harmonizer as marginal at best, thus my exclusive use of stand-alone vocal processors.

There have been a few individuals that have been able to obtain outstanding results using Yamaha's onboard vocal processor, though. Dan, on the PSR Tutorial, posted some songs that were incredible. And, he also posted all the information on how he obtained those results, which I consider very important. After retuning my onboard vocal processor to the settings he posted, my results were comparable to his, but you still had to work around the delay, which with many songs was a problem. You will find this information HERE

It would really be nice to see information such as the Vocal Primer that Dan posted on the PSR-Tutorial being posted here again. That's what drew many of us to this site many years ago. Instead, all I see is one pissin' contest after another, which I consider childish at best.

The thread often begins as an informational post about a new piece of gear. From that point on a handful of individuals that have never seen, touched, played, smelled or heard the equipment begin dissing every aspect to the point where it becomes obnoxious. Additionally, those doing most of the dissing have no intent of purchasing the equipment, let alone traveling to a location where it's on display and try it out first hand.

Dumb-assed threads seem to running rampant on the Synthzone lately--Fran's post is just another, glaring example. Kinda' like a couple kids writing their names in the snow.

Cheers,

Gary

Dan does some great things with it for sure. I'd like to hear him on a good one like the TC Helicon.
I was just jerking your chain. I knew what you were doing.

Fantastic, Fran...it's always good to remind ourselves why we use a certain arranger.

Keeps things in perspective.

My little Yamaha PSR-S910 is a joy to play, and one of the best "bang for the buck" arrangers being made, in my opinion, of course.

Gary D. still loves his old Yamaha PSR-3000....can't say I blame him; it's a terrific keyboard.

Still, that new, incredible Tyros4 sure is tempting, and would make a great retirement present from me to me , or a great Christmas present in case I do change my mind, and stay on for another year.

It's nice to see that an old arranger like the G-70 can still meet all of your needs.

As I said at the beginning...fantastic!

Ian
