Re: List of SC-55 clones/compatibles?

I will have a try later this week to see whether I can select patches over MIDI from a Sound Canvas (i.e. if the MV-30 uses the same locations for its patches), and whether it reacts to controllers not mentioned in the manual. In principle some additional things ought to be possible, because you …

Re: Buying PC parts and ICs from China is usually fakes or remarked, or reprogrammed OEM memory modules.

Thinking about ordering some OPL3 and supporting chips to de-CQM a few cards as well. Er, if most "new" "OEM" Yamaha sound cards from China come with fake (rebranded) chips that aren't actually Yamaha, why would OPL3 and supporting chips actually be the real thing? Especially since the real thing …

Re: List of SC-55 clones/compatibles?

Thanks Yaweta, I won't buy it then. Cloudschatze has piqued my interest by calling the MV-30 "a way to get hi-fidelity SC-55 playback", but if it has 8 channels AND can't take Data Entry controllers (or many controllers at all), it is probably too much messing around with to bother with. I went …

Re: No Midi with Roland SC-55

Thanks for the Hint. It really was the cable. I orderd the DB15MIDI Adapter and it worked instantly, after setting SET MIDI=SYNTH:1 MAP:E to SET MIDI=SYNTH:2 MAP:E. But it only works with the front MIDI Port, the Port in the Back MIDI 1 doesn't work. Could it be muted or disabled ? I couldn't find …

Re: List of SC-55 clones/compatibles?

Short reply: Thanks for the reply. I guess the big one is, will it accept a CC #6 message? As in, for Sierra GM games, Data Entry MSB of 12 is sent, which is non standard and varies the pitch bend range. I'm curious if the MV will accept it. The only CC numbers mentioned in the MIDI specification …

Re: List of SC-55 clones/compatibles?

yawetaG, are you able to record short demos any of the bank that has the "pre-GM GM" sound set? Patches that would be interesting would be Overdrive Gt (O.D Guitar 1), Acoustic Bs (AcousticBass), Clarinet (Clarinet 1), and maybe some of the synth patches. Not yet, I still have to set up my "studio" …

Re: List of SC-55 clones/compatibles?

Yeah, I had a look earlier. I guess the CM-500 meets the criteria also? I'm looking into the old MV-30, as well. It appears to be a SC-55 (before the SC line existed) but with only 8 channels, and a sequencer. It also may have higher quality samples, too.. I wasn't looking for that at first, but …

Re: List of SC-55 clones/compatibles?

Basically, this would be *any* General MIDI compatible device out there. Nope. Most manufacturers use their own instrument samples and synth engines. So while the instrument mapping provided may be similar to that of the SC-55 the samples are not the same. Casio use their own sample sets. Kawai is …

Re: About Roland Virtual Sound Canvas 3

Just wanted to check in after some break. Great work! I'm currently messing around with the JV cards. I have a programmer for them and am thus able to dump, alter and load my altered dumps back into a JV device. You are aware of these projects? https://www.gearslutz.com/board/electronic-music- …

Re: About Roland Virtual Sound Canvas 3

I guess this means somone should get off their asses and make 100% authentic SC-55 SF2 and DLS sound fonts? It depends what you understand by "authentic SC-55", because there are 2 devices actually: the original SC-55 and SC-55MKII with not only significant differences in the Soundbank between the …
