QY-70 and QY-100 with computer? Here goes nothing...

Couple of thoughts about the 70 / 100 differences as it relates to the Groove Templates.

Im using them now, they are pretty wild.

Judging by other characteristics of the 70 (lots of preset 'techno' stuff), im guessing they thought this feature was better for beats than anything else?

Not sure. Still playing around. Very weird but a nice canned 90 or so ways to mess with the quantization and emphasis of your beats within a style. I would think you generally want to keep your tracks on the same Groove Template or almost the same.

Its pretty easy to mess everything up very quickly, which i like, but hard to control purposefully.

Pretty cool.

Wondering if anyone knows of a workflow to do the following:

1. compose on QY-70 or QY-100 (check, thats easy enough)
2. Export midi files to DAWS with some mapping of sounds and effects
3. With the ultimate goal of being able change voices and edit more liberally in a linear fashion.

I love the units but im feeling limited by the ability to edit linearly and / or to replace voices freely.

Thanks for any thoughts!

Exporting MIDI files from Songs is only possible to a Smart Media card according to the QY100 manual. Patterns cannot be exported as MIDI files, period. Bulk dumps over MIDI only support the QY data format, not SMF.

Do you still have the manual? I looked this up in about 2 minutes online...I don't even own a QY100 (had a QY10 years ago).

Good luck.
No, I've dumped smf's
