Thanks for all the tips on NRPN's; they do sound useful! I wrote the Rosegarden SC-8850 studio file with NRPN & other controller limits in mind, but only to be certain I was including every feature possible. It will take quite some experimentation for me to begin using them as fluently as you.Matze wrote: ↑Wed Nov 22, 2017 2:41 pmHi!
Yes, its sometimes better, if you have many Sysex in the Midi, that you delay the begin from the first Notes.
I used a special Reverb and Delay Setup that I load first.
With the NRPN you can edit the Stereopanorama in the Drumchannel for each Note/Sample. This is very cool!
NRPN 3632 is the Tom Note C4 , NRPN 3639 = Note G4 =Splash etc. with Value 8192 you have a Center Pan, Value 12288 = Pan Right 96, Value 2048 = Pan Left 18 etc.
If you want, set it to 0 and you have a autopan.
Yes this is logical, only the Samples are @32Khz, but its not good do make recording @32Khz too! You have the Soundcanvas "Rendering" with Delay, Rev. etc., I made all Recordings with 48Khz!
For all I know, the most Roland "Rompler" have a Sample Datacompression, Soundcanvas since SC88 or SC88pro with ca 4:1 and JV Modules with Boards 2:1, XV/SRX Boards I don't know exacly, may be mixed with 2:1 and 1:1!
Its ADPCM or similar algorithm, because on the SC8850 you can listen it the 4:1, it sounds typical like ADPCM!
2:1 is not so extremly, its difficult to listen it, like in the JV Synths!
Btw, i have here a new native WIP with my SC8850:
It makes sense that Roland would compress what they can, as even in 1999 memory was a bit expensive. I'm just surprised I can't hear it, but suppose I haven't trained my ears for ADPCM as I have for common low-bitrate perceptive compression methods.
Although I haven't played that game or heard it before, your video does showcase your great skill at, and understanding of, the SC-8850's more advanced features. It's beautiful!
