Quote from: Best_Peasant on September 09, 2023, 09:08:39 AMKind of related, but can the GM800 connect to a vg88 or 99 and utilize the alternate tuning function? Or even the sy1000.
Quote from: Bluesbird on September 09, 2023, 09:40:42 AMYes, using the GKC-DA. Go GK out from the GM-800 to GK in of the GKC-DA and then GK 13-pin out on GKC-DA to 13-pin input to SY-1000, VG-99, etc. You cannot view this attachment.
Quote from: BROCKSTAR on September 09, 2023, 09:57:51 AMThe gm-800 can do alt-tunings too. So you can turn any of the synth stuff into whatever tuning you want, or to match your other systems etc.

Quote from: Best_Peasant on September 09, 2023, 10:04:54 AMYes, they feel weak, for example I keep a guitar in DgCgCD for some Zep stuff, but when I alt tuned on the gm800 it just sounded....off.Of course, I'm happy to be informed I'm doing something wrong.
Quote from: Elantric on September 09, 2023, 10:15:36 AMExplain- if your actual guitar strings are tuned DgCgCD with GM-800 in guitar mode, you run into hitting the brickwall cutoff frequencies of the 6 internal individual bandpass filters inside the GM-800, which expects EADGBE tuning at A4 = 440Hz . To insure best tracking there is a low frequency limit on each string , and essentially bulk of your strings are a whole step flat and right on the lower frequency threshold of functional GM-800 performance As a test, retune guitar to standard pitch (EADGBE tuning at A4 = 440Hz), and use the GM-800 Alt tuning function to create your desired DgCgCD tuning https://www.nist.gov/pml/time-and-frequency-division/popular-links/time-frequency-z
Quote from: Bluesbird on September 09, 2023, 11:57:16 AMElantric,You can do special tunings on your guitar which can bet set within the GM-800. As I pointed out a couple weeks ago, you could use a physically tuned Nashville guitar to get faster pitch to midi response. This is unique to the GM-800. No other Roland/Boss product does this. The band pass filters will be adjusted according to the tuning. From the parameter guide:You cannot view this attachment.
