I use a 5% or less than the MS can offer me and I already spent Us$ 3800 with the Psr s900 and the MS.

PS, I am also waiting for the final OS 10.0 with no bugs that surely will require a faster CPU and a new PCi Don't tell this to Dom

Hardware upgrade:
that is your personal choice. nobody can force you to do.


but I just write the capabilities of the MS as it is now. it will help people who want to know. an example of the capabilities of eight asio host connection to USB keyboard controllers is for sound designers. they can for example in realtime connect usb controllers to 8 asio host VST. for each host selcet a sound and make desired settings and play the sound in realtime on one controller then connect the sound to a DAW senqunser or EXTREME SAMPLE CONVERTER and sample the sound to make new instruments sound. it is a great option for example sound designers like James.

The only way that will ever happen though is if a list is made between us end users.

From all the systems I tested so far the only things I've found are as follows......
1: COMBI mode defaulting to Piano sound.
2: Default settings not loading on bootup for Velocity Curve and Effects.
3: Loss of Midi Data being sent to the VST HOST when you access certain menus or features. For example, starting and stopping the HOST RUN.
4: The sounds displayed in Live Arranger are not applicable to what sounds are on the Mediastation so many don't actually change anything.
5: Qranger chokes when you slow down the tempo while it's playing back a midi tracks. You have to stop and start it, or adjust the tempo while it's stopped for it to work.

And the workarounds for theses.....
1: Pressing the COMBI mode button can correct your sound while it's selected.
2: You have to manually load the defaults when you bootup.
3: Don't stop and start the hosts, there's really no need.
4: There's no workaround for this one.
5: Don't slow down Qranger while it's playing. Stop it, adjust your tempo and start it again.

All in all it's a pretty mind blowing keyboard and considering the vast amount of options available, OS 4.1 is just a hair away from being finished. (Based on what systems I've tested so far).

James

This first 8 MAIN slider, have the CC controller fixed on the code.

IF you need more slider controllers, for each sound engine you have also another 36 realtime CC controller, just press the MS key: MIXER and will display a lot of sliders.
With the key: 8-16, 9-32 you can switch goup.

This all CC controllers sliders are also available to the external Midi OUT expander, you can use the ASIO PATCH 9-0, that work only for the 2 external midi Outs.

IF you dont like the 36 CC controller assigned, open your Presets folder and locate the file: midictrl.

Well, just as an entertainment until the next video arrives.... If you need more sliders, knobs and buttons you don't need to wait for Dom to design a new MS hardware, you can simply connect the unexpensive NanoKontrol or NanoPad from Korg for example (as many as you need) via Usb and you can control whatever you want even other Usb devices connected to the MS.
Since I discovered I could use the MS's Usb ports to connect all my keyboards and controllers I only have to turn on the MS, the powered monitors and the arrangers. That's a great step forward for me, I don't need to start my PC and open two programs to run the connections among the Usb ports. The use of USB controllers like the Nanos only work via a computer except when you use the MS.

Sure no problem. Switching sounds like that is almost instantaneous.

In the mean time, I was going to hold these back until I had time to record myself singing, but sure I can do other songs. So... here's two backing tracks produced on the Meidastation. Everything you hear is the mediastation, but the Sequencing is done on a Tascam SX-1.

Daniel

Dance The Night Away

Hope everyone likes them.
The sounds used are a mix of Giga Files and VSTi's.

Regards
James.

very nice james.

I hope that moving this thread here. not suffer users who do not come here, so they will missing everything.

Most keyboard players who come to the synthzone.com, go straight to General Arranger Keyboard Forum.

shame, becouse of some people, the whole threadmust suffer.
