So I've turned the PC3 insode out a couple of times by now ? No, once, I think, by now, and it wasn't much fun. Literally? Well, it still needs servicing with that special can with pure alcohol to get some key going, but I use theCP4 over USB midi to play weighted things, so it's bearable.
I've made a standard form (a rack with 1 pole low pass at 20kHz or so, a gate and a limiter) recording with the Yamaha MG16XU mixer's AD converter running at 96kHz, trying some test sounds on my latest SetUp with special correction effects (as AUX2 5 unit chain, and global EQ==>MultiCo):0floydtest1_clav_rhy.mp3

These 3 sounds were edited from ROM presets, but using a fixed pattern (depending on natural env or not, some layer voumes and sloght velocity changes, and overall volume and Midi mode), so if there'd be a midi implementation chart, these edits would be automatable.
Anyhow, clearly there's lots of fine tuning desirable, but there's a sounds that works with some of these chords, and hey, I wouldn't have thought all these deep piano sounds for instance were actually inside the PC3 somehow! Turns out they are, and a lot likw them. It can even do absolutely believable Boogie Woogie and pipe organs hard to distinguish from real. Not as thin and haughty as the presets, but with body and usable for all kinds of chords.
Anyhow, that's the snappy update for now, there will be downloads and video.
