Yes. Again, many uesrs have wanted to purchase Ravity for years. Even though Ravity's version is older specifications. :?

We have not decided price. I expected under $40.
Try demo version. And send us your OS & DAW version infomations 8) . Then you will be received 50% coupon. :)

A MU80 can be picked up for 100 bucks or so from ebay, that's like the XG-50 in a box-o-sounds, that can be midied up to a computer


I have the XG-50 (my first synth), I have the MU-15 (same board as the XG-50), I do have some DLLs from the once free downloadable MIDI player by Yamaha (which was never an official release, especially outside Japan), and I'm sure I have a software XG-20 or so lying around with a videogame.

I'm definitely covered, but that is just not as comfortable as having an official VSTi. But no, Yamaha is only pushing their MOTIF range. And Roland dropped their "EDIROL" branch as well... So what you can get these days are overprocessed synths, unless you go Kontakt with Hollow Sun, Hideaway Studio, Prodyon, Sonic Cat (formerly Luxonix) and maybe even Digital Sound Factory (license holders of the old E-MU samples).


So yeah, I do have my eyes on Ravity again. Might be something different for a change. But I'm just confused about the S/R/16 tags.


And there is hope, that LFX-1310 also sees an x64 update.

Compyfox wrote:I'm a little bit confused right now...
You can download Ravity S, R and 16. Was Ravity sold as "bundle" back in the day? I don't think so.

So what I get from this info page, is that RAvity S is the "Synth", R is the "beats rompler" and 16 was a multi-channel version of S?

Somebody out there that can fill me in please?

Oh I'm going to add this features on Ravity's web site. Thanks.
Maybe bundle package will be created.
Yes, S is meant Synth, R is meant Rhythm. You can load up to 16 modules of RavityS/R within Ravity16. :)

The MU10XG must have been a great bargain back in the day, costing just £200 and then Cubasis was included :o

But googling, it looks like Yamaha made an XG editor for Cubase 5?

So by that understanding, each product has to be bought separately. Hm...

And Ravity16 is basically a rack/routing matrix which can be created with modern day modular environments.

A regular 40USD sale price for Ravity S sounds like an interesting deal. Bit I kind of hoped that the complete bundle costs only 40-50USD.

I don't remember that Cubasis was included with my version of the MU-15. Then again, I couldn't care less as I already had Cubase. I needed an outboard solution since I switched from one ISA audio card to a Creative AWE - but I couldn't use both my old synth/audiocard combo and the AWE at the same time. So I got the MU-15 as outboard device:

Numanoid wrote:But googling, it looks like Yamaha made an XG editor for Cubase 5?


I never saw an editor for that in Cubase to be honest. And again, I could care less. This synth was a b*tch to control with the stand alone editor. Even worse in Cubase if you didn't know what SYSEX was all about (still don't to be honest, MIDI CC# can you only get so far). Unless you created your own mixer map. I basically used it as GM machine most of the time. ANd for this, it's absolutely outstanding if you need some bread and butter stuff to your overprocessed synths and samples.



But this is not about Yamaha - this is about a company that stabs at that "oldschool" direction. I never got either Purity or Ravity, then it was somewhat discontinued, so I had an eye on the "Sonic Cat" samples (the Kontakt versions).

If there are plans for an official x64 release for all their former tools... I'm definitely all ears for that.

With lifetime upgrades it's non-transferable. Sorry guys. :D

I'm just trying to figure out how to safely send my copy of Windows 7 Ultimate. It's really not worth it just for a Rompler, though it must sound amazing at the cost of a DAW and an OS.

I make little joke :D :oops:

For some reason or other when I have tried to get into the Luxonix website over the past year I have got a 404 error page not found. I was thinking my internet provider had blocked the site for some reason or other.

But today I in fact got into the site :o :) So something or other has happened, could it be that I have upgraded from Win XP to Win 7 since last time?

Anyway, I have downloaded the demos, and will install them later, and shall send you my info so that I get the rebate :wink:
