I am guessing a Link only remembers one pairing connection?
This is good for your duo configuration. Each time a player switches on his/her Sylphyo, it should connect to the same Link=Synth.
Ok, when did your trumpet and bass flute get the last update, apart from the cleaning cloth and a few drops of oil here and there?
Don't blame me, this was meant as a joke :-)
I'm not a fan of frequent updates for an instrument where I have to internalize or even relearn behavior after changes. The Sylphyo works for my use and as it is, along with the Link box, as a standalone system, I can play it forever. For my guitars and other instruments, I rarely want updates and if so, then only for certain areas of playability...
...and that's a method I'd like to suggest to Aodyo. A large proportion of users think that software for electronic instruments needs to be updated regularly. Although this is actually not the case, as can be seen with most keyboards and synthesizers. For the more sensitive Sylphyo I think it is possible to improve the software in separated sections, concentrated on the most requested parts that you are trying to get perfect.
That could result in an update every six months or so. With an overhauled main section (the theme) and a few bugfixes.
I support this feature request.
But I expect a problem with Compass. How do we tell it the direction we want to play?
We would need some sort of Center, Reset, Set Direction, however you name it.
Otherwise we could only play on stages that face north :-)
Well, with new user's first post moderated and to be approved – if one of the Aodyo people checks the forum once or twice a day, you don't need sub-moderators at all. May be a more attractive option for a company forum.
The best thing would be to approve new topics, ...
Not new topics. This would hinder regular users.
You want to block/approve first posts from new users.
... but it means we should organize to guarantee a maximum response time in order to avoid stifling new discussions.
You have users who connect on a more or less regular basis, like Clint and me, and you may know a couple more. If a few users get the permission to approve a post from a new user, most of your current problems are gone.
If none of the volunteer moderators knows how to handle a post, they simply leave it in waiting state until you decide what should happen. This is how we deal with it in another forum and the waiting time for desired new users is never more than 12 hours.
People go on holidays without notice or lose interest for a while, so you need more then one helper, either in-house or external. The owner(s) of a forum should check it at least once a day and I think this is not the case here.
Automatic spam blocking will never be watertight. Nowadays it is more of a coarse sieve.
Please don't get me wrong, I'm really in no position to criticize your forum job. But I was an Internet Service Provider for many years and I know how it feels when you see 2% user traffic and 98% aggressors, spams and idiots on the server. And for a forum, that would be a very good ratio. If you are less lucky, you can quickly end up with 0.1% or 0.01% legitimate traffic.
Well ... NodeBB claims to have "unparalleled moderation tools". So it has at least a "moderate new users" function, right? Enable that and, if the bad guys do not manage to go around, most of the bot-show will be over. Then comes IP- and user-blocking and an administrator who has a look every couple of hours.
It's really not necessary that so much spam comes through and, worse, stays in the forum for days. You could even recruit a few volunteer forum users to help out with administration as moderators. Many forums do it this way.
Great. Best bot text I've read since years. I wonder if they work with people or if the algorithms are really that good now.
However – the Aodyo forum is the only forum I know that doesn't care much about spam. A little annoying, not?
@clint - I'm just over 70, by your age theory I shouldn't be able to hold a drinking straw anymore.
But I can. I can still climb a 5.9 and play a wind controller. Just not at the same time :-)
This Robkoo R1 is a toy, more or less. A dramatically stripped down WX5 copy with half the keys, without the mouthpiece and, as I learned, 20-30 ms wireless latency. But nice on stage, you can plug it into an amp with your guitar cable.
I like to use Roll to chage the fine tune, but if is not in a smaller range is less interesting. And in absolute with 360º of range is not sensitive enough.
Yes. Similar problem here:
I like to map Roll CC to Pitchbend (unfortunately not directly available in the Sylphyo yet). In normal mode there is a hysteresis in the neutral position, a kind of "platform", where values do not change. This is basically good, but you cannot pitch smoothly across the neutral position. Absolute mode would be the method of choice, but here your Roll range is 90° left/right, which is hardly playable.
One could say "scale the absolute Roll CC to the range you want", but not everyone in every setup can process 14Bit pitchbend coming from the Sylphyo. If you are bound to 7Bit pitchbend, you would upscale less than a quarter of the 0-127 full range and this leads to audible steps.
I think high-resolution sensor output should be scaled in the instrument, while full sensor data are available, not after MIDI translation.
