Can i find out the age of my eko guitar from the serial number


Unfortunatly, once you get past the well known Fender/Gibson/Gretch brands, info gets harder to come by.o can try contacting Eko directly in Italy. Here's a link

Or you can date the guitar off the codes on the pots. Here's some info on that-

Can a Korg CX3 Organ 61 keys be compatible with the RolandFantom XR module?


Hi, from what I can tell you cound plug your CX3 into the synth module with a 1/4 inch patch cable and run the audio through it, however I think you will be quite limited in what you can do to modify your sound.

Where the synth really works well is when you feed it digital input data. For you to be able to do that your CX3 would need midi outputs and while I don't have one, I looked it up and can see that the CX3 is too old and does not have midi capability.

Midi (musical instrument digital interface) is a common language that allows musical devices such as your fantom to communicate with other devices. A keyboard with midi running into a synth is in essence just a control surface, a way for you to input data into your synth module, it is making no sound itself, but rather outputting digital data into your synth which in turn generates the sounds you want it to. There are allot of keyboards out there that are only for this purpose and are simply controllers. For example, M-Audio Oxygen 61 - 61-Key USB MIDI Controller. I'm afraid your CX3 is just too old to be able to do this, however, I imagine some of the sounds that thing makes are very vintage and good, and modern synthesizers often times just cant reproduce that (though they are getting batter all the time). Hope that helps :)

Which system do I need to be able to trigger loops/textures/pads from the lower 2 or 3 strings of my guitar (kinda like one finger accompaniment on cheap keyboards), while soloing on the higher strings?


You could hook the output of the GR33 to something like an AKAI MPC (http://www.akaipro.com/mpc) assigning different notes to trigger different samples or sequences.

Here is a link to the best site in North America for wind synthesizers:http://www.patchmanmusic.com/WindControllerFAQ.html I am not a Mac user myself but it sounds like you might not have the threshold adjusted correctly on your Akai. It works differently when connected to external synths. Anyway I am sure you will find the answer on that site or in your manual. There is also a link on the site to download the latest updates.
