No disrespect is intended but....

There is no need to donate owner's manuals as they can be found online at Yamaha's Japanese site. Yamahasynth.com also has the same manuals in various languages but not for every instrument. If you have an owner's manual not available by Yamaha then it should be welcome here.

As for service manuals it's illegal to distribute them as you know. Those that do know their way on the net can find lots of service manuals on at least two sites and download them. I am OK with this but I am not OK with the creeps that download them and then sell on ebay a "top quality re-print" as if it were their own property. Really? Top quality?

I need to find some time and write a nice letter to Yamaha's lawyers asking them if their IP has been put on the web and it's free for the takers. I want to inform them about the wise guys that make copies of the A-series sampling CDs, the various ROMs, and of course the service manuals that are sold on ebay.

Anyone that wants an illegal copy of a service manual can get it for free and use it to fix their instrument. Unethical but as I said I can live with it. Selling it to make a few bucks? Nope, I cannot live with it and I am going after those people because to me they are of the lowest quality humans on the planet. They would sell the stiff (read dead parent) to the city mortuary for a few bucks. Just pathetic.

By the way, I couldn't care less if the rest of you like my views or not. Get an illegal copy of some software, manual, whatever to fix your toy or to try and see if the software will help you on something you do. You made money by using that illegal software copy in your business? Then pay for the freaking license. You fixed your synth and gave a concert charging a fee to people that attended? Pay for the freaking manual then.

Yamaha's service department in the USA can send you a free copy of a service manual by email or on a CD if you talk nicely to them. Sometimes they also send upgrade files not available to the general public.

I recall that we had some SY ROMs available on this site and that's fine because we try to work on some hardware problem that Yamaha cannot solve for us since their support for the SY-series has stopped long ago. But if I find anyone selling those ROMs you can bet I'll come after you. Just because they are available on the web it does not mean that they become your property to sell.

End of rant.

Hi DrF. Been looking back through emails etc to see if I can locate that Word doc but no luck as of yet. Got another drive to check which has an incredible amount of data on and it could be buried in there. If I can find it I will put it online. Would be good though if we could come up with some sort of online database where people could just add entries as they come across them. Not sure how we would implement that but must be a way.

Hi Saul.

It has been a long time since I last worked on creating a database with FileMaker. It would have been relatively easy to implement that but I am not dealing with databases these days.

One option that you might want to consider if you have the time to devote to it, is to implement a main menu with the 2 or 3 letter model number such as SY, QX, CLP, etc. As soon as you choose that, a second menu is activated with the actual model number, such as 22, 55, 85, 77 and 99 for the SY group. Choosing one of the menu entries should display the code. I do not know how you implement this on html, I only have experience with very basic html commands. Can you copy that code by visiting the support page of yamahasynth.com? It's not exactly what we want but it is very similar and it works with inline sub-menus.

An easier solution would be to make the ".doc" file available for download and update/correct it with input from the forum members. My document has about 240 entries and as it may be obvious I don't have 240 instruments around to test the accuracy of the information of that document. It was put together on a copy/paste fashion from various Yamaha sites (mostly in Europe) that do not exist anymore. Some of the information in it leads the user to the reset function and some to the factory tests.

I can re-send you the document when you are done with the upgrades you want to perform. Others should not try to ask me via PM about it because I have disabled that option in my profile. In the past there were members who e-mailed me with their objections to my politically incorrect views and as I have said I couldn't care less about their feelings regarding my views. Political correctness never had any place in my life.

DrF, I think you are absolutely correct on the subject of copyright items, you'll get my support there. And similar to you, I don't really care what people think or don't think about my views/opinions, they are mine and I have absolutely nobody to answer to about them. OK, nuff said on my part!

I know Clyde, we have had this discussion before. It's not my intention to make new members feel uncomfortable and my post was not directed to the person that posted that commend in particular. It was aimed into the direction of those ebay sellers that consider themselves to be the wise guys of the universe. Top quality reprints.... Perhaps Yamaha checked the laser toner they use to print the stolen manuals and gave them their seal of approval.

It was also intended to clarify that (based on my experience) the forum is not a repository of anything that may be deemed illegal. We are here to help each other with our issues and problems, not to share someone's intellectual property. If people want to share stuff via PM, so be it. But we need to be a little more careful regarding the overall picture of things.

I'm with you on the copyright thing. It's always been my opinion that if your going to download some software that actually makes you money then you should always pay the people who made it! That's how the world works and when we stop paying people for their efforts the whole thing will fall apart. I know this all too well from personal experience and for a small business like mine, not getting paid makes a massive difference to my life!

I'm fine with people sharing stuff between themselves. I'm no saint! Sometimes you may be looking at paying a hefty amount of money for software that you are not sure is going to do what you want it to do. Once you have paid your money your stuck! So, it can be useful to have a fully working version of something in order to better evaluate if it will be right for you? However, if it is right and helps you do what you need to do then I think you should pay for it. Often your really paying for support and updates which can be invaluable and of course it finances further development of new products and helps people keep their jobs and pay their bills.

Musicians, on the whole, are not greedy people. We like to share and help each other out but we do have to be careful when sharing intellectual property on the site. A lot of the stuff we have here is no longer available commercially but we do, where possible, need to get the copyright owners permission to make their work available to the masses. I am pretty sure that most if not all of the downloads are already in the public domain but I am happy to hear from anyone who thinks their copyright has been infringed. You don't need a chain of high paid lawyers to get us to take something off the site. Just let us know and we'll do the rest :)

The reset list of course is simply information that has always been available to users for quite some time and we are just attempting to bring it together in one place to make life a little easier for everyone and of course it's always going to be free to access here.

It's important that we as a community try to preserve as much information as possible about the gear and software we use. Unlike most sites which tend to be on free hosting that disappears after a certain amount of time, Yamaha Forums is a permanent resource which will always be available and of course free to access and use for everyone. There will never be a charge to access this site or the information held on it.

Talking of the site. It is run on a MySQL database and although my knowledge of MySQL is limited I am pretty sure there is a way to get the info for the reset list presented in a way that is user friendly and lets you find the info you want very quickly. Perhaps some modification of the existing site search facility which is focused on the reset list? i don't know, will definitely look into it though.

I'll check your board permissions. Probably a glitch and you were added to the wrong group.
