2016 NAMM Show: At the NAMM Show, Yamaha announced some updates to Soundmondo, its social media site for synth patch sharing.
Soundmondo lets you connect your synth to the Internet, via Web MIDI, for patch sharing and more.
Yamaha’s Nate Tschetter gave us an update on Soundmondo:
- Soudmondo now has over 15,000 reface synth patches available for free download.
- It works with Google Marshmallow & Android devices; he was demonstrating it on a Google Nexus 9 tablet.
- It’s currently compatible with Yamaha Reface synths, but they’re looking at expanding it to support the Montage.
- It’s based on Web MIDI, which is a W3C standard, so it should eventually work with any web browser. Currently, they recommend using Google Chrome.
