Well this is a funny one.
When I set them up on the T-2, they were on the styles and
all 16 MIDI channels, but not the R-1.
Only way I could get them on the R-1 was to set them using the Voice Edit and
then they were really there! No doubt about it.
I must say this, I don't have a 3K, so I have no way to verify how this will work or sound on a 3K.
The Master Compressor on the T-2 works wonders on everything, but it is a dedicated part of the keyboard.
The changes made there are definitely noticed, even to my worn out ears.
When I set up a voice using the settings I mentioned above using voice edit,
I get the same results as on my T-2 Master Compressor.
I have not worked enough with it on the styles and so forth, but
I can not see why the results would be any different.
Looking through the many effects available for these keyboards, I see many
having compression associated with them.
So my conclusion is Yamaha has given this resource to us because it works and is
maybe among some of the best effects hidden in among the many.
We will have to ferret out these things for ourselves.
Dennis has long begged us to get deeply involved in the Mixing Panel.
Could be he has been trying to lead us to the water. Anyone ready to have a drink?
