Re: Similarities to the Yamaha VP1

OK, I got the VP1 Drivers list out of the Mac editor, there are 75 different drivers. A number of them are specialized waveforms, but the majority are recognizable sounds like the WSA1R. The WSA1R has 302 because of a large number of percussion sounds, …

Similarities to the Yamaha VP1

OK, I just learned that the very, very rare Yamaha VP1 synthesizer uses samples for the Drivers, it doesn't use a mathematical model like the VL1 does. That feature makes it more like the WSA1R than I had anticipated... I'm in the process of getting my h…

Re: Run sequence while editing sounds

Sorry to hear that. I use an external sequencer anyway since I have the rack mount version.

Re: Run sequence while editing sounds

I'm quite disappointed about the built in sequencer of the WSA1. Not only that it is disabled completely when I switch to sound edit mode. It will not play cycles when WSA1 is in sound play mode. It always stops at the end of the last measure. The only ca…

Run sequence while editing sounds

Hi there,

is there a way to keep the sequencer on the WSA1 playing, while at the same time one is tweaking and editing the sounds? Do I miss something? Every time I switch to edit mode, the sequencer stops playing and is not whilling to start again, wh…

Re: Verification and Firmware Upgrade

Hey Javelin276,

many thanks for your reply. So I will just leave it as it is. Maybe it already has version 2 - who knows? And if, as you mentioned, there are no groundbreaking advantages from v.1 to v.2 - who cares?

Still really looking forward to …

Re: Verification and Firmware Upgrade

There isn't any way to tell which version of ROM's are in the unit without taking it apart and looking at the chips.
I haven't heard of any compelling reason to upgrade if you don't have the latest version.

Hi there,

first I want to say thanks for providing this site, the information and downloads. I'm a WSA1 owner for a few days now and am really looking forward to exploring this synth. But due to it being quite complex and not being self explaining to m…

Re: More sysex banks / dance expansion

OK, a package is on it's way. Some of the items won't work on a WSA1R, they're for the sequencer in the WSA1 keyboard. I have a WSA1R too.
Cheers!
