Sorry, this page is under construction and isn't ready yet. Better check back later.What is XG?
XG is a new MIDI standard developed by Yamaha which gives much more editing control over your MIDI sequences. It is basically an extension of the GM (General MIDI) standard which has been very successful over the past few years. Whereas the GM standard has support for 128 voices - XG makes use of Bank Select messages to access literally hundreds of extra sounds. All these sounds are fully editable allowing you to change certain characteristics of the sound such as darkening or lightening voices, delaying or accelerating voice start up and all kinds of other manipulations to the sound.
