So far, so good. We had PC software that allowed us to perform patch librarian tasks using MIDI (called System Exclusive or SYSEX) on many of the devices but it requires bi-directional data transfer between the sound module and the computer, and signals in a single MIDI cable only go one way: You need two cables connecting the In and Out ports. From the computer OUT to the module IN; and also from the module OUT to the computer IN. The computer requests data; the module sends it; the computer sends more data.
This story started somewhere in 2015, when a user named Keropi posted a thread on the Vogons forum, about cloning a Music Quest card. What is a Music Quest card, you may ask? It is a clone of the Roland MPU-401 MIDI interface. Keropi had collected a lot of information on it in a previous thread. But I suppose that begs the question: what exactly is a Roland MPU-401?
Abstract:There are no short-cuts. Improving your listening skills takes effort. Without direction, a budding audio professional is more likely to waste time and effort in search of better "ears." This tutorial will enable you to be more productive and reach your goals sooner, with less effort, resulting in a more positive growth experience.

For those using computer-based DAWs, analog-emulation plug-ins (such as DUY's DaD Tape, Waves' Renaissance Compressor, and Bomb Factory Digital's LA-2A) are invaluable tools in the quest for analog sound. Yet, as helpful as such applications are, they still seem plagued by a subtle lack of depth. They're only mathematical models of the real thing--close, but not quite there. However, by using analog-emulation plug-ins in tandem with real analog processors, you can meld the best of both worlds for a truly phat sound. 781b155fdc
