Hi,

I am a happy new owner of the MODX, and is reading the "Mastering MODX" series of articles on this site.

I have now come to the "Side Chain Modulation" part, and there I have to download a file called "SuperKnobExamples.X8U". But the link in the article is dead!

I found a post on this forum from 2019, where another user had the same problem, and he was provided with a new link. That link is now also dead...

Can anyone please help ? I really want to continue reading this article series.

Someone (at Yamaha) will have to update that google drive link with something valid.

I didn't see the contents on any of the cache sites I sometimes can find things in.

If you dig hard enough you'll find dead links all over the place (hint: please fix those too).

It seems like a cleanup is due :)

In general I must say I’m a bit disappointed about Yamaha's online presence. I am using Mac, like many other musicians, and for instance I have to download Chrome to make login "sort of work". It's still quite difficult to log in, but I can make workarounds in Chrome. In Safari I can't log in at all!

And doing a search, I can see that this has been the status for at least 2 years?

I would assume a big company like Yamaha was better than this?

In order to out-source the forum, Yamaha made things "easier" at the expense of not really having control over some layers of bugs or weirdness. The MIDI organization is running the same forum software - not sure if that implementation is having these same problems or not (I'm not very active there).

... back on the topic - if anyone happens to have the file maybe they can share it somewhere and then the rest can "download at your own risk" in the meantime. Maybe Joel @ Moessieurs should backup host some of this content so there's a more reliable place to grab some of these files.

Once a quarter to once a year everything goes in the trash until some (not all) of the links are fixed enough to make it to the next crash. Self-imposed crashes.

Hi Lars,

I agree that Yamaha have some serious issues with the structure of their website but i guess that is the nature of the internet that content move around.

Due to this I try and back up some articles and content I'm interested in even if I don't have time to comple/fully go through them when they are first published.

I've attached the example file you requested (SuperKnobExamples.X8U) together with another example file used in the series (LIVE SET Examples.X8U) and you can find them in the MasteringMODX.zip.

Hope this help you move forward... :)
