Yamaha had VL synthesis running on Pentium II MMX processors in 1997.

Why isn't there no VL VSTI in 2012?

Thats a good question. Has anybody figure out a way to get S-YXG100 Plus VST to work in an upd to date system? Virtualization maybe? If so please describe your setup. Also I'm having trouble getting the S-YXG2006LE to work with XGedit95. Does anybody know a good setup and configuration for this? Anybody also know were to get a full version (not demo) of the S-YXG50 and S-YXG100 Plus VST? If so please provide links or PM. Thanks.

i think more devs should make anime franchises based on thier synthesizers like yamaha do, but i suppose such awesomeness can only be found in japan.

Yamaha only produces the engine. Other companies, ala Crypton Future, which is what I think you are referring to, license it out and develop projects around it.

I still have KVR's Vocaloid 1 announcement in my inbox, somewhere. :shock:

Does anybody know how I can use the S-YXG2006LE or S-YXG50 in a host and change patches or use them with XGEdit? Is this possible? I've looked everywhere. Apparently once apon a time you used to be able to change the patches. Now its only stuck on grand piano.

A bit of thread necromancy here, but i'd like to thank the participants of this thread for the awesome information!

I wanted to turn an old netbook into a Sound module, but its ended up being a standalone little sequencer/sketchpad!

my tiny portable XG setup:
-Asus EEE 701 netbook.
-nlited Windows XP
-Heavily stripped down FlStudio10 / XGWorks 3
-Asio4ALL

I first tried the S-YXG50 WDM midi driver, which was great for playing MIDI (could put polyphony on maximum) but the latency was a bit too much for realtime twiddling.

Both the MidRadio/SGP2/xg2006LE patched VSTi and Hypercanvas were much quicker but choked a little on heavier tracks. (not sure why 2006le did, its supposed to have a fixed polyphony limit of 32)

Finally tried S-YXG50 VSTi, worked like a charm! polyphony set to 64 seemed to be rock solid.
:party: :hyper:

Now I need to find an early 2000 daw with deeper midi support. (or learn xgworks..)
I've never used XG stuff before, it seems like quite a lot of fun :)

The old S-yxg 100 poly 8 PVL win98se is fully capable of low latency playing as I show here.

With modern components supporting win98se this is possible.

Don't forget the VL70-m Wizard can help expert edit those VL voices in detail over 1800 VL synthesis parameters.

vl70m-wizard.blogspot.com/

Helping beta test it is very good for editing VL70-m compliant patches.
