I apologize in my previous email w.r.t. some date errors, as I couldn't pull them on top of my head. But the facts regarding the digital technology remains...fm enabled more dsp than any other digital technology. And ofcourse Yamaha developed it for musical applications, not Roland.

Ofcourse every company borrows from each other if you must ask...like the virtual modelling developed by yamaha in 1991 provided base for analog modelling and other things to come. Similarliy in 1992, Novation was formed by inspiration growing out of Yamaha's 'pocketbook'.

I am not a fan of any particular brand, i have many brands like korg, waldorf, access (virus), roland, yamaha, but the facts remain. But for the price, you can't beat yamaha. All other brands use proprietary technology (i have seen the korg parts are usually yamaha; i vist my friends workshop often). Its not surprising at all because Yamaha R&D team and the company makes a lot of money for that matter; everytime korg sells a product with 'backlit LCD screen', yamaha shares in the profits...that is how the corporate world works.

I love Yamaha because you could get quality for a lot less money you pay.

Anyway, have a nice day.

Hans

Actually Hans got a fiew things off. This stuff should be reservered to the gas station, but I hate seeing false information posted in reviews. Sonic state guys please delete if you see fit. So... <br><br> FM and Physical Modeling actually came from research at Stanford University: <a href="http://www.stanford.edu/dept/news/relaged/970709sondiusxg.html" target=new>http://www.stanford.edu/dept/news/relaged/970709sondiusxg.html</a>. Search for FM on FM. But not to downplay Yamaha, they did take the technology and made it into viable, playable musical instruments.<br><br> The DX7 and FM synthesis wasn't the first digital synthesis. The PPG Wave 2.2 and digital wavetable synthesis predated the DX7 in 82. Digital sampling was available with the Fairlight in 79. I believe there are others as well.<br><br> FM synthesis is a form of digital synthesis that is very different from other forms of digital synthesis like PCM and Wavetable based synths. So implying Yamaha and FM paved the way for digital and that only analog was available when the DX7 was released is way off base.<br><br> The first synth with Midi was the Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 - from the creator himself: <a href="http://www.davesmithinstruments.com/other/museum.html" target=new>http://www.davesmithinstruments.com/other/museum.html</a>. BTW, check out the evolver, it's one damn fine synth. :)<br><br> Other than the claim that Roland started in 81, this is all that I know is off for sure in Hans review. As for the rest, who knows. Regardless of the debate, both Roland and Yamaha are great synth companies. There's pros and cons to each - there's technology and innovation and then there's business... Specwise, on paper, the CS6X appears to be more capable than the JX-305, but then it's all subjective which is pretty clear by this debate.

Hey Hans, buddy from Germany, I think you have a mistake in your research...Roland was formed in 1972, not 1981, lol!

Exactly craig, I come here to put what I thought of the CS6x and ended up getting put down. As ive said time and time again, music production is nothing without actual talent and idea's. Let's face it every synth is out to do the same thing at the end of the day, and whoever does the JOB best, is the best. In reviews and specs, ive noticed how alike the CCS6x and the JX-305 are, there almost twins its scary!, but u guys are not awake enough to notice that, except ones silver and ones blue. There both not made anymore for the same reason (money problems), so whats everyones problem, there both dance synthesizer's with the same control and specs, Ok roland may be a more respected make, but they both do the same thing. Have heard both, I can say there's no difference so quit the hype and get on producing those tracks, jeezus..

instead of putting each other down, why not use your OWN synth and create some groovy tracks...I have a casio ctk and i have made some excellent songs using just that..
