Stay on top of that treatment. I have an issue with my arm which is mostly caused by mousing & using the keyboard too much. Some minor adjustments in my workbench help minimize it, but today's work environments are anything but ergonomic.

hey roland ... get well soon ..
hope to get the dvd soon.
BTW if u have access to it, I highly recommend some sort of qigong exercise. These are really helpful in curing RSI and any pain caused by bad posture.
As a taichi practitioner for 5 years, I can vouch for qigong exercoses being an incredibly powerful healing method, and unlike the full taichi form is really easy to learn.

there is still some confusion about the tutorial.
it is not a dvd for a dvd player, but it is on dvd because the amount of data. the tutorial is in html. you can open it in your internet browser and go by a click on the picture(with hyperlink) to the G2Demo/editor.
there a some vids. when you click the picture, they will open in your media player.

I got my DVD today (I'm in the USA).
That was quick for mail this time of year.

I can't find the Elvis patch though, nor the Tai Chi tutorial Wink

Does this mean you're already working on Part 2, or another project?? Smile

Thanks Roland - Good Job

Good to hear that your hand is doing better.

That follow up sounds interesting too. Ems' are quite rare and especially here, so any enlightenment would surely be welcome.

got the dvd today, and went through it a little.
It seems to be very well organized and easy to follow, and packed with tons of information.
Have to say that though I waited a long time for it, definitely was worth it, and am very excited Smile

thanks Roland.

DVD came a couple of days ago, and I've dipped into it a few places at random.

My first observation is that it's pitched at what I think is just the right level.

It assumes that you know the mechanics of creating and using G2 patches--something that the G2 manual itself describes in gory detail--and that you know something about the rudiments of synthesis, but are not an expert. So the beginning parts of the tutoral cover a fair amount of stuff I already know. The coverage is nice and clear, and I particularly like the little animated graphs that show how various waveforms are made up from the constituent harmonics.

About half-way through the first page of the tutorial, it starts covering ideas that although I may have understood them in principle, I did not grasp the ramifications.

For example, I already knew that the G2 includes an ADSR envelope in which each of A, D, S, R can be modulated by a control input. However, it never occurred to me how much sound variation results from taking those control inputs and connecting them to LFO outputs! As another example, it had not occurred to me to use a pair of level scalers to give different amplitudes to the left and right channels depending on what note you play, so that the pitches spread themselves out over the stereo field the way they would if you were sitting at a piano keyboard.

And that's just part of the first of about eight chapters. It's clear that I have a lot of studying ahead of me ...

Hey Roland,

Glad to hear you've sorted the shipping and paypal malarcky out. All being well I'll be having one of these off you in the new year, xmas has put a very serious dent in the budgets for now though and I echo what Dasz says, hope your issues get better soon. Smile

hey guys,
Now that Ive had this tutorial for a few weeks, just wanted to say that its really an amazing source of information. Not only that actually, it is one of the most valuable and practically useful tutorials I have read or seen.

I have been trying to get my hands on a well-organized and rich source of information on synthesis for a few years now, with little or no success.
Some sources I found (specifically some thru this forum) that though were packed with lots of information, were presented in a confusing manner. They may be easier for a seasoned synthesist to follow, but they just ended up confusing me more than I would have been had I just tried to figure it out on my own.

Others though well presented were not directly relevant to the G2 but rather to the original NM, and were workable but not ideal.

And lastly, some books I purchased or downloaded, like "The Synthesizer Cookbook" or "How to Make A Noise" were just downright useless pieces of crap.

I'd like to give credit where its due, and I feel Roland has been very generous in sharing his knowledge gathered over many years of (irreplaceable) experience, which in my experience others are just not as generous about sharing. He goes way beyond just explaining the basic theory, and a lot of thought has obviously been put into how the tutorial is designed and the information presented in a step-by-step manner.

This is from the point of view of a novice synthesist, for whom Roland has really helped in getting a step closer to converting all the theory one encounters about synthesis into something practically useable on a day-to-day basis. Also, I have used my G2 more in the last month than I did in the year before Smile.

I do not think that The Synthesizer Cookbook is a useless piece of crap. It has a number of suggestions for patches that are well worth trying as starting points for imitating the sounds of acoustic instruments, and my copy came with a CD of 700 or so samples of kitchen appliances being used as percussion instruments. I think the CD alone was worth the price of the book.

hi andy, only for the chapter history of elec music. this was because it goes more international and bigger then i expected.
thats why i did a completely make over, more international examples. but the rest is spread over the other chapters.
so all chapters must be downloaded then.....
not possible, i'm afraid.
I was started writing SoundLab II, but i thought some ideas belonged in
SoundLab.
in SoundLab II, i will write about synthesis from a different angle,
so a realy different tutorial in that perspective.
but the tutorial you have is, i think, is perfect because most about synthesis is covered and well explained in this,
but i wanted go even beyond the concept of this tutorial, but then it would be to much to grasp.
friends and my girlfriend/manager told me to stop!
the rest is for
SoundLab II.

so the new price(exept for all orders i already have):

the CD costs E49.50 ex post and packages.
please put next to CD your language.
you can order it at paypal, to
link removed by mod
sending costs netherlands E 7,-
sending costs europe E 7,70
outside europe E10,45


It's really a shame that you can't make this available by downloading an ISO image. It's a much greener solution and saves everyone time. No more trips to the post office for the sender, no paper/plastic/gasoline/jet fuel wasted on shipping (except with the few who don't have access to a fast connection)
