Hi, been reading posts around the forums for a long time but never actually joined, even though I'm the one who bought's Scott's Tyros I a couple of years ago.
Well I'm looking to upgrade and need a 76 key board. Not many out there since we all know they don't make many models with 76 keys - hense my query of the G-70.
"Blink" says it all - yes, I'm blind, but can navigate many boards once I learn the format and positions of buttons. The G-70, however, has the combinations of buttons and the dreaded Touch Screen. This is where my questions are going to.
If possible, maybe one of the avid G-70 users can email me off line to further discuss these questions (Fran???)
1. After reading the manual (at least the first 30 pages), I'm finding that Roland may have used a logical standard format for their representation of fields or links to selections for the Tone and Style areas. I need someone to verify this for me...is it 2 across and 5 down? I read that the display presents 10 selections at a time.
2. Is the 5>> icon in a normal or standard position on the screen when present? Close icon?? Gues, is there any other standard icons on the screens for voice and style selection besides the ones to select the item and the ones I mentioned??
3. Does anyone know of any other alternative selection method which can be used to select these items above? I read there's a numeric keypad but it's also on the screen and would also need to know the layout of that screen.
4. Anyone know of any computer based software which will edit real-time?
I am looking for a board which I can play without tweeking a lot if not at all. I heard the E-60, but felt it needed a lot of tweeking. I'm asking these questions to make a determination of whether an overlay can be setup to be placed over the screen and have markers for standard zones of the screen and pinpoint key contact areas.
Any info will be helpful.
PS: Scott - if you read this, I may be selling the T1 tonight. Great board, but old styles and sounds. Very easy to navigate though - at least for the presets.
