I just want to come back to Ben as the OP and say thanks for drawing our attention to this. The YT video is here if anyone is interested.

Also, thanks for the lateral thinking and exploration of doing the same thing in hardware (albeit JV samples) as Ty is doing with orchestral sample libraries - and for sharing that you found it to be a success. Makes me think about my JV-2080 more carefully.

My big take-home message from Ty though, is to spend as much time learning to play as getting into the Tech. As well as making a plea to his audience, he really proves the point with little snippets like at 24:30, where he effortlessly punches out an orchestral adventure scene theme, more easily than falling off a log. Oh, how I need to learn that and stop lusting after the next ‘thing’.

Elf, I blame you, cos it’s definitely not my fault... :headbang:

With orchestral stuff, voicing is everything. I once heard Sakamoto play a piece with a midi grand piano linked to a Korg T2. And it sounded divine. And the T2 isn't especially great sounding at strings. But then .. it _was_ Sakamoto .. he could burp "She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain" and it would still be wonderful

It was a truly amazing presentation and Ty is such a modest talent and a lovely guy.. I was lucky enough to be there on the day and the one thing that wasn't apparent in the video was everybody in the room's Jaw hitting the floor when Ty unleashed some of those amazing layered patches..

:bouncy:

Thanks for that. It was great to watch someone so comfortable in what he does, and not the least bit precious about it.

He is that... I helped him install some acoustic treatment in his studio a while back. He has more toys than Hamleys, including a beautiful CS80 now.

Yes, he's definitely a synth geek, in the best possible way... :thumbup:
