The Yamaha QY10 is a hand-held music workstation produced by the Yamaha Corporation in the early 1990s. Possessing a MIDI sequencer, a tone generator and a tiny single-octave keyboard, the portable and battery-powered QY10 enables a musician to compose music while traveling.

Thank you remsky,
i really like the drums of QY10, it sounds much better as on my QY22 or QY100

are in your *.xrni file the same note assignments as on the (non general midi) yamaha QY10?

Hey, thanks for the thanks! :)

 

It follows as much as possible the qy10 drum note assignment. However HH-O does not fit the "logical" octave layout, that is, if you look at the qy10 keyboard - it is on the "next" octave - but that would also be BD3.... So I put HH-O at the end - in relatively speaking - the 3rd octave, after "Shkr" sound. Just try it yourself - you will see.

Hmm, I dont know how important it is, but maybe the manual is wrong, or imprecise.  :mellow:

 

I look on my qy10 and I see keyboard that is 1 octave wide + 1 key from next octave, that is: [C1.......B1  + C2].

So you get 13 button keyboard.

 

That gives room for 13 drum sounds - per view/set.

 

I imagine the qy10 has a specific algorithm for dealing with the keyboard/midi/sample mapping when a track is in DrumSet mode.

 

Otherwise - if doing simple straight/logical midi mapping - key for HH-O/Shkr[C2] should play BD3 sound from the UpperSet/NextOctave.

 

That would have 1 button "wasted",  the japanese cant have that - so we get this interesting arrangement. I only noticed it when doing the actual sampling.

 

Further question would be - what is the actual MIDI note mapping for the Drums, when using the MIDI input port with an external keyboard/sequencer?

 

Stay with us and see the mystery unravel.... :ph34r:

ah ok sorry my mistake i thought the qy10 only has 12 buttons :smashed:

can only speak for roland, whose drum-general midi mapping shines halfway through me.
basically it's about transferring the limitations of a real drummer to a keyboard where these limits do not exist

for example, ride cymbal (D # 2) and ride bell (F2) are 2 instruments on a keyboard, on drums, for a real drummer only 1 instrument.
there's the difference of the sound if the drummer hits the cymbal in the center or on the outer edge
hats (closed, pedal and openhihat) are only on black keys (F#1 G#1 A#1 ) and you can not play polyphonic on keyboard, because a drummer can not do that too

find that interesting, think yamaha engineer have also thought something about the QY10 :walkman:
