One small thing is that the sysex messages listed there are XG-specific, rather than GS/XG. GS has its own sysex messages for that stuff, as does GM2.
A-OK, thanks for the info Ian
Like I said, I wasn't too familar with the GS stuff, and was thinking that the various effects parameters and effects types were for GS as well.
I'll change the "(GS/XG)" blurbs to simply "(XG)" ASAP
I don't think you need to bother with that stuff though as it's not adding anything.
That's what I was thinking as well.
Support for some XG variation effects appearing in a future release isn't out of the question
That would be absolutely AWESOME
Like I replied previously, I only recently have been twiddling with the XG stuff (with the S-YXG50 softsynth, which for all practical purposes sounds EXACTLY like DB50XG daughterboard, or an MU50 external tone generator).
Without any of the variation effects (specifically the distortion and overdrive effects), the pop/rock instruments in any of those synthesizers is really weak IMHO. But, add some of the "Tube Amp Sim" variation effect (or another of the overdrive distortion effects)... and WOW!
I recently had been wanting to buy one of the old XG tone generators such as the MU80, but those things are too much money for their age <grin>.
The MU80 has "in" and "out" jacks that allow one to route an external source _through_ the effects processors (such as a microphone, electric guitar, etc...), IOW it will act just like an external effects electric guitar "stomp box".
Hehe, I thought that it would sound really excellent piping my SBLive (with my WeedsGM3 SoundFont loaded into it) *through* the MU80... that Strat Marshall and Garcia Distortion Guitar in my SoundFont would REALLY come ALIVE then!
Anyhow Ian, I'll shutup now... you've got me drooling all over myself now <grin>!
