    Small box everything

    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    There are already many opinions, so I'll try not rpter which says t

    The QY100 is essentially:
    -to play and rpter with accompaniment (guitarist, vocalist, keyboardist)

    It features a squenceur, Expander twelve o'clock XG (tense bank), amp simulator / effect for guitar and voice
    If it is based squenceur, so do not assimilate with a groove box. Here no step sequencer and other parliaments spcifique the grooves box.

    Style is used (including with 4pistes drums) + 16 tracks
    You can change styles / piece of current tempo
    We can create their own styles
    You can play midi with an external keyboard or with the mini keyboard keys making office (without vlocit)
    External devices can be controlled, but I do not see how to manage the control changes or sysex

    Spcification
    -line OUT mini jack (blah for the output quality)
    -Guitar / Micro IN jack
    -Midi IN / OUT
    -Map 3.3V SmartMedia
    -output host (deprecated for old computer quips of entresrie)
    -32000 Composed by rating (low), 64-note polyphony
    -mmoire 20 songs
    -Simulation amp / effect: 18 guitars and microphones 5


    USE

    The ergonomics of the device is very good, and we will soon essentially simple.
    The creation of a new style is not very complicated especially if one takes an existing style
    In short, we are left be more effective than on a computer for raliser essential. on the other hand, for automation and mixing, it is a little less obvious.

    To accompany it is just a shame to press 2 keys (shift + play) to start playback loop (not easy)

    The autonomy of battery is low, this machine uses a lot and it is better to connect a transformer


    SONORITS

    The sonorits simulation is just correct. Guitar, it is not worth a POD2.

    The XG midi bank is correct, all the drum sounds, bass, guitar, synth are (for keyboards and sound modules, Yamaha rput for guitars over the Roland and Korg competitors).
    Nevertheless it is far from a pattern of the same era as it lacks punch and precision.

    The proposed styles, many (over 100) are very well done and believable.


    NOTICE GLOBAL

    To sum it is a good box to do everything for guitars or for claviriste.
    Great for practice and one can take it anywhere very easily
    To dial, we'll basics. With a smart media card, you can finish the song on a computer.

    To use it in live, it seems to me less fit (bank its just, 32000notes limitation ...), unless you use another GM or XG bank (a pattern, for example).

    Excellent tool

    Yamaha QY100Published on 04/19/13 at 11:00

    See full specifications on the previous notice or on the net.
    Noon on / out.
    Guitar input with effects, but I do not use it.
    For audio, one stereo mini jack is a fair bit, but ...
    If I hook up my midi keyboard and I use it as a workstation, it works very well.
    Can run on batteries for mobile use.

    UTILIZATION

    Paid 110 euros with 3 cards smart media (very hard to find now, and out of, ashamed prices). The value for money is very good now, on the second hand market.
    I found it terribly sad that little gray box, so I opened the battery changed the way, and painted yellow .. (See my photos).
    And now I have a drum end which already want to make music, just to watch! ;-)

    I found it terribly sad that little gray box, so I opened the battery changed the way, and painted yellow .. (See my photos).
    And now I have a drum end which already want to make music, just to watch! ;-)


    Anyway back to the camera
    Complete and clear manual.
    The linear sequencer has sixteen tracks it is very comfortable and is very powerful.
    Very thorough editing, everything is possible.
    I went to the computer and even the iPhone (the application Musicstudio very well by the way, a real sequencer for musician and not a toy), but I think in terms of ergonomics the QY100 is still far ahead. ..
    Once you get accustomed to the operation, it is a relentless logic, and created pieces to light speed and with ease ..
    Ideal for songwriters who want their ideas down while doing something already own if opportunities are exploited well.
    As against the smart card storage media is another time, so expect the cards to save your songs, do the Qy 100 stores and 20.
    The VERY good point is that the data is saved automatically power off if you forget to save no worries when back on my tracks and settings are still there. NICKEL!

    SOUNDS

    Okay so there do not expect to last Korg or reason ..
    The piano is limited, but by working a little it works well in the mix.
    Good electric pianos and organs.
    Guitars, blah blah .. With some heavy guitars.
    Correct but not terrible low.
    The rest of it sounds "gm2" what (AWM2 yamaha I think), it is not separately transcendent but to make a mix that can get a good idea of ​​how the sound track "for real".
    The batteries are good, but not great cymbals for my taste, too bad ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    In short a good tool for composing. I do not have money to make music and for 100 euros I record my ideas and make already good sequences.
    It is the interest of the unit, which allows you to go more quickly, you can choose your instrument, it is recorded quantize and youth hop on to the next track, roll!
    Simpler you die, and so much nicer than all the software ..
    For more pro result it will use superior gear is clear, but in the meantime the QY100 is the perfect companion to write your tubes ..

    Sounds are old and outdated, it must be accompanied by more recent instruments but an excellent base.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I do not blame him one, its display is not lit and we see nothing in concert. I have put a lamp near him to see where I am.

    This machine is a little outdated at the time of the computer music, but it's still easier to use a computer to work faster. When we want a small, plug two cables and is ready to play with a computer (if it is not dedicated to music) it takes longer to be in place.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have since 2008 and I use it quite regularly. I had a QY70 since 2005 and I did the same purpose.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Use for 9 years.

    I tried the QY70 and QY100 but really more powerful and better finished.

    Pros: the sound of drums and playing styles fairly realistic, ease of use in "rhythm.

    The -: the low storage capacity and complexity for creating sequences

    from www.musicproducts.com, for less than $400 US

    despite its compact size, this piece of gear is basically a self-contained music-making machine. the sequencer is amazingly versatile, you can program up-to-8-track patterns (phrases) which you can "copy" and "paste" into your songs. the 500+ sounds are also very wide-ranging in the musical styles they are suitable for. the editing capabilities of the qy100 is also very impressive. i love that each sound can be played through a virtual 8-octave keyboard. 8!! so you can play the sound at an extremely low or high frequency and come up with really neat sounds.

    like most people who have used the qy100, the batteries get eaten up in no time. if the keyboard was velocity sensitive, it would be an even greater stand-alone workstation. it would also be nice to have included a sampling capacity (although right now you can record analog instruments into it). otherwise, it has won my heart.

    plastic case, rubber keys. it would be nice to have an MC-303/505-type of keyboard on it.

    i love it! the time spent on the manual is well worth it. there are so many musical things you can do. i think this little machine is actually a challenging medium for song writers. because of its limited screen space, you can't see everything you do, which makes you compose and think of the composition in a different way than you would if you were writing it on staff paper or something. just my more philosophical two cents.

    Paid about $500 on ebay.

    This unit sounds incredible. For such a small unit you really can't believe the sound quality. You can do anything with this unit from writing full songs to doing backing tracks, etc. You can create drum, bass and backing chord patters, plug in a guitar and get amp and effects modeling. You name it!

    Also, the unit is very light, small and portable. Would easily fit in a backpack or gig bag.

    It's really hard to learn to use effectively. It goes through batteries like it hasn't eaten in a month.

    Pretty high quality, other than the fact that the unit housing is made of some high impact plastic. Sound quality is first rate.

    UTILIZATION

    The app is not really its name because it is a little stiff schedule, but within hours it is doing. You can plug a guitar effects and use 18 / Programmes: disto chorus ... This sounds a bit digital and there is a lot of noise in distortion if you scratched with a single coil is the only troubleshooting, it would have a noise reduction. You can also connect a microphone singing. Attention, it does not store the guitar / voice, just the songs in midi.

    SOUNDS

    It's really a device gnial, I have 1.5 years since I had nothing further before my guitars, it's really a rvolution! I cr my pieces from scratch, I stored on the card smart media not foun: 32MB / 200 pieces, bte does indeed than storing 20 pieces. To buy absolutely!

    The problem is the sound (4Mb ROM). It is far from roland sounds or synth ...
    despite all the modifiable parameters and the effects it sounds always QY (too crooked).
    However, it is sufficient to deal

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 2 years to compose, traveling is very small and perfect because it offers the possibilities to compose a piece of insane 16 tracks.
    I also used to record the tracks in midi digital piano fits perfectly with the song composé.je some notes and editing, the QY driving the piano, I record the correct sound of the piano.
    only drawback to this machine, sons.ils are very inadequate.
    was my first sequencer, the value for money is good.

    UTILIZATION

    Manuel trs clear rdig Fawn friendly.
    No major problem, the functions are easily accessible once
    we understand the operation of the BTE that is not too difficult!
    BMOL only the internal memory can not import a midifile too big
    (Rarely more than 60/80 KB!) Even if all the songs are empty.
    Fortunately there is the backup Smartmdia whose configuration
    is very well thought.
    Good ergonomics, we walk with ease in all menus, the smallness
    the screen does not impede!

    SOUNDS

    The drum sounds are good and trs best rates recognized that some boxes.
    We can complte paramtrer battery by changing the pitch of the snare,
    bass drums and some instruments and their rsonance and ADSR.
    Ditto on other instrument that can modify rsonance and ADSR.
    The quality of the instruments is a Yamaha PSR 730 for example, short right
    and sufficient to get an ide of our "Creations".
    Mode not not be very useful and can change styles each measure
    if desired, not something trsralisable in "live".

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been six months that I use, I had a QR10 possd compltement dpassbr /> but the same principle used in much more sober.

    Excellent, can do without a PC for composing, recording function
    into agreements not trs is not fast (much more than to enter into agreements
    notes notes on a PC ..... ) Sounds nice, good battery trs.
    Everything is in the same mixer, effects sends (they also paramtrage)
    Many useful functions are available and well thought out, this brief QY100
    trs is really full enough to occupy the long winter accessories ...
    It MRIT to be good students (with the trs good user manual) to use it properly
    and discovering all subtlits but this is done fairly quickly while having the same.

    The default: the notch is not rtro light and battery or battery consumption too high
    for use "mobile". The latter is tested with more beefy battery
    like 1800 mA or more!
    Price just lev but no offers this kind of product so .... in its class
    there is no better!

    Nothing to add on what was said.

    UTILIZATION

    The manual is very clear. The rest is you who discovers it.

    Former user of the PMA-5 (which I bought recently), I was disappointed by the rigidity of the use of QY 100 when creating patterns of users and the creation of a song from those cis
    Even if you want to compose a song from AZ you should you comtenter an intro, a hand A hand b 1, ab 1 fill, fill 1 ba, 1 ending. (All measures 8 max). It's not that hard?
    Do with that. Can not add a pattern more!

    If you want to address a specific number or to delete or to lengthen its duration? change its height and that kind of thing, the cross and the banner.

    If you want to address a specific number or to delete or to lengthen its duration? change its height and that kind of thing, the cross and the banner.

    If you want to copy a rhythm (for example) of a preset pattern to a pattern user to edit and rework: gallery: we must find an alternative route if the pace t'oppose "preset pattern" and you can not be touch.

    And a lot of funny things in this genre that I only made to stop flooding
    my ardor.

    But they say that the Yamaha QY 100 it is to make improvisations on guitar and the styles predetermined the constant drops.

    This is a very bad wizard models.

    So I am happy to have found my five LDCs, much souple.Bonne working basis.

    SOUNDS

    The batteries are good.

    For the rest, apart from some sounds, it's basic. That there were already 10 years ago. In fact it was the first of my disappointments by plugging the device.

    Taking guitar: I do not use hardly ever. I never made a record avec.C is a gadget as it has good effects also.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been a year since I have it.
    Well, I would have done better to buy something else that day.
    Anyway my opinion is that this machine does not help in creation.
    may be the interpretation and improvisation on grids that can be programmed Rapidos styles on previously manufactured.

    Nonetheless I still managed to be saved with personal stuff on my BR 1200 CD.Mais time tantrums and it cost me!

    Tell me about Yamaha is that you do a little intelligent machine for composers? Many of us!

    UTILIZATION

    As QY 70
    Manuel clear for amp simulator

    SOUNDS

    It is the train, I used a QY 70 for 5 years, when the QY100 is out, I sold my QY70 to buy it, and when I got the hands, or rather between ears: I cried!
    I did not know enough about the technique to say what is happening, but the sounds of the QY100 are the same as the QY70, but the same nazes, I kept components made with the QY70 on my multitrack I remade exactly the same with the QY100 to see, well it sounds "Bontempi", so I buy a QY70 and recently with the two connected to a sound system and listen to the same sounds on two machines: the QY 100 sounds like a shit, and the QY70 soun…

    Who knows what the engineers at Yamaha have done??
    Conclusion: If you have a QY70: Keep!

    OVERALL OPINION

    The amp simulator is fun, can be compared to a rack effect with zoom, otherwise the rest is like the QY70, apart from the sounds!

    Sequencer 16 tracks, easy to use, versatile, with lots of regular duties. I used a Yamaha W5 synthesizer, a few years ago: the sequencer is the same. It can mix all with internal mixer (volume control, pan, effects)

    Effects: it is limited to a reverb, chorus.

    UTILIZATION

    It's simple to use, and fortunately, because the manual is super mistranslated. Anyway, again, the time of my W5, was already the problem.

    There are four keys to walk through the screens, buttons for main functions (song, pattern). Key play, rec, stop the sequencer. And a small two-octave keyboard with buttons a little mole, but in the RER, it is easy to use without emm ... beter neighbors with "clicks" incessant.

    SOUNDS

    I use it for the basic rhythm of my pieces. The sample set is the same as (guess??) Of the W5 ten years ago. There is good: pianos, synth sounds (leads, pads, basses) sets of strings (there are even two mellotrons!) And brass, some electronic sound effects, and batteries. And there's the bad: the violin solos, the saxophone and "sounds" ... frankly, the sound of the phone or bird that sings, I do not see what's going to serve me. Editing sounds is very limited: the filter and the envelope.

    The effects are good, and if they are cut sounds are not rotten.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year in addition to a Novation Nova 2 XL and frankly, I'm having. I get carried away in the RER and I tinkered with during the morning commute and evening. Paradoxically, the problem is that the batteries (6 AA batteries) will eat up very quickly. Better to have rechargeable batteries.

    The most fun: the sauvergade on SmartCard.

    Yamaha Having practiced for several years (I do not remember the reference of the instrument :-)) I was not taken aback by the general philosophy and sound of the instrument. As if I found an old friend, but a friend who is in the pocket of a trench coat.

    I'm glad I created a lot of basic pieces. I recommend it so highly. What's more, its price is down right now (July 2006)
