Re: Yamaha Sequence Object Linking (SOL) 2

Yesterday I found this old thread (you might have seen it already) .... I suspect that the S-YGX soft synths weren't actually discontinued, but that the technology was transferred to a company that Yamaha bought back in 2005: Steinberg . .... in any way, there are no S-YGX synths made after S-YGX50 …

Re: Yamaha Sequence Object Linking (SOL) 2

OK, I am going to skip for the time being writing what I said would be Guide 1: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=935780#p935780 and do Guide 2 instead, because it's very short and fast to write: Guide 2 : Decrypt Yamaha S-YXG50 and S-YGX2600LE Soundbanks source code in C doing what the guide …

Re: Yamaha Sequence Object Linking (SOL) 2

Totally off topic, but I must ask if veg (a.k.a Evgeny) is actually the Evgeny Bogdanov who wrote this http://ixbtlabs.com/articles/livetolive51/index.html ? nope, Veg last name is different, I am not into doxing people, but I will say to you that Veg last name doesn't even start with the letter …

Re: Yamaha Sequence Object Linking (SOL) 2

I actually know the admin of og.kervella.org very well, in case we could correct the page... Actually, it seems it's known for at least over a decade, there is Retail version, because I found this site in Japanese: https://www.sodan.ecc.u-tokyo.ac.jp/~teru/tools/lmr.html that is around since at …

Re: Yamaha Sequence Object Linking (SOL) 2

Good luck in your exploratory endeavors . Actually, they are about to end, as soon as I release all I current have, which in very short is C source code that can decrypt Sound bank of both S-YGX50 and S-YGX2600 and patches that enable the VST DLLs of those 2 SoftSynths to use such decrypted …

Re: Yamaha Sequence Object Linking (SOL) 2

Are you referring to the S-YXG2006LE version ( bundled with Yamaha MidRadio 7) with support only for XGLite or is there actually an S-YXG2600 ? See https://veg.by/en/blog/2016/04/25/yamaha-midi-synth-history/ Yes, I am referring to the same S-YXG2006LE - technically that is "SGP2.DLL" from MidRadio …

Re: Yamaha Sequence Object Linking (SOL) 2

... I am working on it, but I still cannot figure out the Soundbank encryption algorithm for S-YXG2600 - it's very close to the algorithm used by Yamaha S-YXG50 VST, but yet I am still failing to properly decrypt the S-YXG2600 Soundbank... I've just succeeded in decrypting the S-YXG2600 Soundbank. …

Re: Yamaha Sequence Object Linking (SOL) 2

but I'm not sure whether it will really work with other AWM2 synths, because those do not use XG (except for their GM bank maybe) and have many more* parameters available than in XG. you're very knowledgeable about those matters and I agree, even my lack of knowledge makes my point of view totally …

Re: Yamaha Sequence Object Linking (SOL) 2

If you want other software, ask first, because I've got most interesting downloads sitting on my hard disk. :) thank you for sharing, I am by no any means expert on any Synth, even less on XG and thus I have no idea what software is useful. I am more interesting in preserving those old synths with …

Re: Yamaha Sequence Object Linking (SOL) 2

OK, I think for the (very few) people that might be interested in experimenting with Retail version of Yamaha S-YXG50 VSTi from SOL2 I am going to write what I found so far in form of several guides and include in each of them the necessary source code - that way in the future someone could find …

Re: Yamaha Sequence Object Linking (SOL) 2

Can you tell me if the installation .INI file for SOL has a languages section, and whether changing the default value there allows SOL to be installed in another language? I don't know - I think it's Japanese only. That's precisely what you can do with the PLG board editors too. :) You don't need …

Re: sc-88st pro

That's a new one to me. Prices must have dropped . I bought SW1000XG few months ago for less than 40 bucks. In general I saw many SW1000XG for average price of 50 bucks in the last year. I put mine in a small thin client and it's like those external units you're discussing here. However, with …

Re: sc-88st pro

what about this: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=59466 also, as someone that knows almost nothing about synths and who tries to learn, I want to use the opportunity and ask - why would anyone need old hardware module for XG, when there is VST SoftSynth: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic. …

Re: Yamaha Sequence Object Linking (SOL) 2

Manual installation turned out to be ultra simple. You need to do first full installation one time in order to get the value of the Windows Registry Key where your Serial number is encoded during the installation process, but that's really small effort to make for the ability afterwards to be able …

Re: Yamaha Sequence Object Linking (SOL) 2

Ah, so the VSTi is like the PLG board editors: standalone mode and plugin mode. I am not sure we're talking for the same things. I mean the VSTi, as far as the installer is run from the CD can be installed alone, not part of the whole big SOL2 installation - that's what I mean by standalone. So, …

Re: Yamaha Sequence Object Linking (SOL) 2

Also, while SOL2 has protection and requires installation from the CD (there is file "0protect.pro" on the CD that I guess is related to that protection), the VSTi installation files are OK to be copied to the hard-drive and installed from there separately and as stand-alone application. That is …

Re: Yamaha Sequence Object Linking (SOL) 2

OK, I found the "Blue" CD ("X4422A0") and thus I can (finally) answer my own question, there are only 4 real differences I can identify and they all seems irrelevant: 1. the "Blue" CD ("X4422A0") contains older version V2.0.5 (from 06/05/2002) of the "Yamaha UW500 USB Audio Driver", the one on the " …

Re: Yamaha Sequence Object Linking (SOL) 2

IIRC, my XGWorks 4.0 CD-ROM from a Hello Music package had only trial versions of the softsynths, whereas my retail XGWorks ST box appears to have the full version of the VSTi (can't check right now because my main Windows 98 system that had it installed suffered a HD failure some time back...) …
