Modified Yamaha RX-17 Patch bay style.

Simon just finished modding his Yamaha RX-17 with the some tips from the Anode Records page. Even though his webpage is in Dutch, its not extremely hard to figure out what is going on. Most of the bends come from a single IC wired to a DB25 connector and patched through some stackable banana jacks on main console. Lots of great images and a very neat video that makes me want to go out and buy an RX-17 on eBay as well.

  1. That depends on wheather the RX-17 has trigger input or not. If the pads are triggered by piezo speakers. Then you can put a potentiometer between the positive wire of the piezo speaker. That would only let higher pressure sugnals to go through. Also check the midi implementation chart. It the midi protocol supports the velocity of a midi note then you can you user sequencer to control the velocity parameter.

    I hope that helps. Let us know what you find. Thanks.
