Overview
 

XG-Gold
 

XG-Gold is an XG Editor for all Yamaha XG Synthesizers & Modules (up to 16 parts supported).
Furthermore, it supports the hidden QS voices of the DB50XG, SW60 and MU10 as well as the QS300 voices.
You won't believe how powerful those little gears can roar...
The perfect editor for DB50XG, SW60XG, MU10 and QS300 because all these XG devices get a full access to the bombastic QS voices - they are far away from standard XG stuff!!!
Some small .mp3 clips using QS voices can be found on Petrosil's Mu(h)sikseite. Enjoy!
A MIDI player, XG-Mapper and lots of other useful functions are integrated.

The registered version has no limitations and includes:
  • Free email support

    • I've had my SW60XG for a couple of years but never knew about the hidden banks...
      ...and I found your demo program by accident really, and I am completely blown away.
      The QS sounds are better than any of my other sound sources (M1, Morpheus, MS6) of course they are new and I may get over the initial shock, but I really thank you for such an excellent program

    • P. Robins, UK
    • .. the sounds I'm getting from my SW60 are far out running anything I ever hoped to get from the thing

    • R. Kimmings, UK
    • The *best* XG Editor out there (I've tried them all).
      What a *wonderful* update!
      Really unleashes the power of the QS voices - I had no idea my DB50 had so much in it!

    • T. Rockliff, USA
    • It's an odd experience to have something in the house for a year or so (in my case SW60 and MU10), and then find out that it does MASSES more than you thought it did when you bought it!"

    • I have seldom (if ever) come across such professional looking software

    • C. Ashby, UK
    • The demo version blew me away. I've had my XG for about a year or so and never used it because I only managed to get GM MIDI sounds from it and felt as though I had been ripped off by Yamaha.
