Re: Hello. I am becoming a WSA user

Yes, I suppose you could say that. The WSA1 has more variety in the timbre from the different Drivers, it's not limited to using just a noise burst. It can also mix up to four different Drivers together into each voice, along with using a variety of Res…

Re: Hello. I am becoming a WSA user

Interesting, I looked up Karplus-Strong so I would know what you're talking about. I see it's a burst+delay+filters method of producing a plucked string sound, the delay sets the pitch. I see in the WSA1 Reference Guide there are Delay Effects in there,…

Hello. I am becoming a WSA user

Hello.

I am getting a WSA (I am bidding on a few as we speak and intend to win one auction). Few of the WSA1 for sale include manuals so I thought I should just google it up and see if I can download one. Thus I landed here. It would be super if I coul…

Re: New to the forum

I think you’re doing a great job honouring the WSA1 by getting this website up. Keep up the good work! Your website got me started fiddling on the WSA1 again, so thanks for that.

About the editor;
The user interface of the WSA1 is pretty straight forw…

OK. SoundMan doesn't run in Windows-7 either in any of the compatibility modes, it may only run under Windows-95.

The WSALib01 editor does run just fine. It allows you to edit TM files by copying and pasting sounds between the slots in the TM files. …

Re: New to the forum

Hi Keys! Nice to hear from you, this board has been pretty quiet lately.
I've read the review you posted, it's good to keep those things around on these older synthesizers. There is so little information available.
I haven't been using Cubase lately, …
