Rick’s Flat Earth proof |

by 1 other (via)
Ab, quick note. I was working through a flat earth idea this morning and discovered that the longitude distance between Tucson and Charleston (at latitude 32 north) is 36 longitude degrees and so is the longitude distance between Perth and Sydney (at latitude 32 south). In the northern hemisphere, that 36 degree city separation is 2000 miles and in the south it’s almost 3000 miles or 50% longer. When I checked a north polar map projection, with equidistant latitude lines from north to south pole– a good approximation of a flat earth map, the distance between the longitude lines were similarly 50% wider from each other at the latitude. This is the simplest and most elegant proof I’ve ever seen of a flat earth. I developed it this morning and haven’t seen anything quite equivalent to it– in simplicity and elegance after perusing flat earth videos, sites and podcasts for about a month now. It doesn’t require flight logs or any travel– just a simple longitude to miles conversion for the same longitude distance in the north and south at equivalent latitudes. I chose the cites above as pretty close approximations but I could make it more accurate. I’m passing this onto you this morning so that you might pass it along for our peer review among other fakeologists. I might be wrong but I’m giddy about being right at the moment. Thanks.

1.7 The "SY99 Sample Bulk Dump" Did you know that the SY99 not only supports the fairly well-known "Sample Dump Standard" (SDS), but also the "SY99 Sample Bulk Dump"? Probably not, since the manual doesn't mention this feature at all. We also learned about its existence only recently and more or less by chance in connection with the the new Yamaha Synthesizers SY85 and TG500. It refers to a most interesting alternative to the customary SDS, which, as you may know, only transmits the raw sample data [this isn't exactly true - Ed.], but doesn't cater for settings like pitch, keyboard zones, fine tuning, [sample] names, sample number and looping of the sample. These are exactly the parameters which are transmitted by the "SY99 Sample Bulk Dump". [i.e. the SY99 Sample Bulk Dump" is complimentary, it doesn't transmit the raw sample data itself - Ed.]. This means, when utilising this standard, you don't have to adjust each sample tediously through the "Sample Assign" menu. But the "SY99 Sample Bulk Dump" is only useful if the "transmission partner" understands this specific standard too. This is the case, to begin with, with the new Yamaha Synthesizers SY85 and TG500. Those who intend to acquire one of these new devices as a supplement can thus be sure that a confortable exchange of samples will be possible. By the way, of course this is also possible by saving single samples to a diskette. In this case, samples names must contain only upper-case letters, so that the SY85 and TG500 are able to read them. This can be easily achieved through the the Rename function of the SY99. Back on topic, there is another new Yamaha device, which is very well suited for using the SY99 Sample Bulk Dump: the MIDI data filer "MDF2", which is also able to receive and transmit samples. A very convenient feature is that you can record several samples one after another into a single file. You can even write single voices or also a complete sound bank into this same file. Finally, you can pack the settings of all internal waveforms into this "super file" using the "Sample Utility" - also a very little known function. The proud owner of an SY99 may now ask himself, what is the use of all this, since after all his device has a builtin floppy drive? Correct, but surely every user of the SY99, who has already worked with samples, has been frustrated by the lack of a possibility to save all samples of a multisample, together with the affiliated waveform settings and a suitable voice in one file. Exactly this becomes possible by using the MDF2 in conjunction with the SY99 Sample Bulk Dump. At the price of a considerably longer loading time than by loading from a SY99 disk, though. On the other hand, you don't have to load about 10 files for a multisample and accessory files and then still apply a host of settings. The transmission time for the whole 512k memory from the MDF2 to the SY99 (or vice versa) amounts to about 5 minutes - a comparatively short time. Not every SY99 owner will want to get an MDF2, just to be able to handle his samples more comfortably, although the MDF2 is capable of much more - see the the review in "Keyboards" 2/92. The question arises, who is also able to understand this impressive SY99 Sample Bulk Dump? Basically, any MIDI software which is able to handle system exclusive messages will do the trick, e.g. also some Atari sequencer and MIDI dump programs. Now, this will probably raise the interest of a bigger part of our readers, because the combination of SY99 and Atari is probably not too rare. Is there a point then in setting up an alternative sample management on the Atari? It should be possible to set up a sequence in Notator/Creator for each sample and a pattern for a multisample and to save some voice and internal waveforms into the same pattern and then later, to load this pattern on demand and dump the mutisample with everything pertaining to it to the SY99 by simply playing back this pattern. This sounds good in theory, but in practice there are some drawbacks. To begin with, it is difficult to find the right transmission speed. The tempo should be around 60 [bpm] when recording and a little less at playback. In our extensive experiments sometimes the transmission stopped just before completion - most of the time this could be remedied by repeating it with a lower tempo. Furthermore, in comparison with the MDF2, the total time expenditure will be higher, because the samples will have to be read from disk or written to it before sending or after receiving them. Additionally, the disk space requirements on the Atari and the MDF2 are about 1.5 to 1.7 times higher than the normal memory consumption of a sample. To save 1 Mb of samples you therefor need 3 diskettes. These increased memory requirements only apply when saving to diskette, they don't affect the memory requirements of the sample after loading. All things considered, the sample management with the Atati doesn't merit an unreserved recommendation yet, but this shouldn't deter users with a bent for experimentation from conducting their own tests in this area.
