Inside the Yamaha QY100, Changing the Battery

This is explains how to change the factory internal battery in the Yamaha QY100 sequencer.

What you need:

CR 2032 Lithium ($2)

Philips head screwdriver


1. Unscrew every screw in the back. A gold colored screw is at the position shown.


2. Pull back the casing slowly to reveal the copper shield. Mind the wires in the bottom right.


3. Unscrew the two copper colored screws which hold the shield down. Open the shield forward, still connected.


4. Push the old battery further into the case from the front (left to right in the pic). Remove the battery. You can also gently use a small screwdriver to pry it loose. Replace with a fresh battery.

5. Carefully re-assemble. Power up. The screen should say "Factory Preset" on its first startup.

Apple Doesn't want You Making Mix Tapes

From Create Digital Music DJ apps are not being approved by Apple's app store. Is it from of potential abuse for copyrights or overwhelming submissions from music developers? Currently there is no explanation. Do you think making mixtapes/dj mp3s are fair use?

Updated: Touch DJ, a full featured mp3 djstation for iphone has been approved. That was quick.

Nintendo DS Piano Addon


Easy Piano allows you to record up to four 3 minute songs and also teaches you to play piano. From Valcon Games. I wish it could be compatible with other softwares like the Korg DS synthesizer :)


Silophone Realverb


Silophone allows users to gain real reverb effects to their sound by uploading clips that are re-recorded inside a real life grain silo.The only bad thing is that it requires the Real Audio plugin. This is a really cool concept though and thats why I'm posting it.
