Quote from: jassy on February 14, 2020, 04:53:13 PMThanks for those examples, very useful to get an idea about the SY1k potentialNot bad tracking in the end, very playable even with complicated phrasing, sounds promising, definitely much better than the GP10 one. And probably it would be better with a fretted guitar, right?
Quote from: BROCKSTAR on February 16, 2020, 04:32:53 AMYeah I tested this last night as well, with velocity all the way up you have to hit the strings harder to produce sound, but all the way off it triggers too much. I find a good spot for me is around middle between 4 and 6 and than I can do decent legatos with less triggers. It plays much like the guitar-to-midi part too. Both are not perfect or stable and triggers here and there but usable for solo stuff if you're careful.

Quote from: mchad on February 20, 2020, 12:53:19 PMThat was fantastic. Fretless too. Wow. Very cool.
Quote from: Brak(E)man on August 21, 2021, 03:35:52 AMThanx But in reality the sound is what makes it playable.I've had a long standing internal discussion with my old self about this phenomenon.If you use the same guitar with the same listening setup , the sound from fi the patch , pedals , room etc, is what makes it easier or harder to play.Both technique and ideas. It can be almost impossible to play fast with one sound and easy with another one,(not based on slow attack , take that out of the equation). The same with phrasing or ideas how/what/when to play.Since this is not a physical/mechanical matter, it's under what would be known as psychoacoustics.This is something that intrigues me more and more and something I have not got a grip what it's really about.If you unplug the guitar and play, there should be no difference in any of these parameters but there are.(at least to the majority of us musicians)
Quote from: pasha811 on August 21, 2021, 06:07:05 AMInteresting. Can it be that subtle differences or bigger ones arose when you have great sound feedback? So an unplug guitar might not sound as 'rewarding' if compared with an FX chain output to the creative portion of the brain that catches those tiny variations and excites other areas in the limbic cortex?Back to OSC if it sounds good enough (pitch wise) and rewarding it can induce phrases and idea quicker than a boring sound IMHO.Every musician responds to stimuli in a different and personal way.. and sometimes the unplug guitar can be inspiring because that is your mental state in that very moment and you compose a beautiful song, to be enriched with sounds later. Consciousness studies are very insightful but we still didn't grasp the essential nature of our being and I think it's ok because I do not think we can. The magic of music cannot be cracked!
Quote from: Brak(E)man on February 16, 2020, 04:49:54 AMHalfway up , then I get misstrigs in the form of no trigs.Which is odd , I have the GK sensitivity high compared to what's recommended on this forum and I pick hard. Off or at 1 on low velocity cut, that's it , past that no go...
Quote from: Elantric on January 28, 2024, 07:57:36 AMAre your strings in standard EADGBE TUNING, at A 440Hz? On a fretted guitar? And SY-1000 is in Guitar Mode?
