Circuit Bend a Yamaha DD-7 : How to trigger more samples than pads ?

Hi, I have a Yamaha DD-7 tabletop drumset. It has 4 pads & 51 sounds (samples). My goal is to hook up 7 or 8 external piezo triggers to trigger 7 or 8 different samples. I can easily see how to hook up 4 external triggers to the 4 existing pad input connections on the PC board, but how would one be able to trigger more sounds without switching them at the unit ?  Thanx.

2001 Yamaha Warrior Stalling out when warmed up and wont start back up until cool?

Hello fellow instructable users! I have a 2001 Yamaha Warrior (as seen in profile picture). When ever I go out to ride the four wheeler has a hard time starting. I have to use a lot of starter fluid and patients (about five minutes worth). Once I finally get going it seems after about five minutes, about the time it takes for the machine to really warm up, it stalls out and I can get one more start out of it and then it stalls shortly after. Another important point is the fact that the spark plug is unusually dry. After the bike cools down I can get it to start again and ride for about a whopping five minutes and then its dead until it cools down again. The situation is that something is getting hot and changing, causing the bike to stall. The bike has a brand new battery, ignition coil, and the starter is in very good condition. What should I check for next?

How do I rewire a Yamaha CT3 magneto that was disassembled by the previous owner?

I was recently given a project bike, a 1973 Yamaha CT3.  The engine was partially disassembled and the magneto was taken apart.  I'm trying to reassemble it, but I'm not sure what wires to hook up where.  The schematic I have is a top level schematic of the entire bike.  Any advice would be appreciated. I'm trying to get it looking like the picture, but now it's only in pieces. I've uploaded some pics of what I have reassembled so far.  The capacator is still on the bike.  I added the coils back to the plate of the stator, but no wires are connected.

My mom gave me a Yamaha Natural Sound 5-Disc DVD Player (DV-C6280). In my room I have a Zenith Space Command TV with no Video/Audio output plugs, and I have a JVC Hi-Fi Stereo SQPB (HR-A591U). I have one Video/Audio output cord, two coax (sp?) cords, and the power cords that are in the products. Is there any possible way to hook up the DVD player through the VCR to the TV? If so, how? If not, are there other cords I need to able to? Is at all possible?

Can someone suggest a solar panel? Answered

I will be charging a 12v 14.5AH motorcycle battery. The reason is that my charging system died and parts are more than 2 weeks out. I live in a state where a headlight is a requirement any time of the day and it really takes a toll on my usable range. So my short-term solution is to attach a temporary solar panel on it and leave the bike in the sun. I would plug it in and attach it when I was not riding so mounting it is not a problem. The panel needs to fit into a backpack and be fairly light (under 10 lbs).

Tablet battery power - affected by HDMI-VGA monitor connection? Answered

I have a 7" Windows 8.1 tablet running a music (MIDI/VST) program to provide sounds via the audio output. Input is via an OTG microUSB cable connected to a USB MIDI 'mini' keyboard (Akai LPK25 - USB powered). The audio is connected to Line In of a Yamaha Tyros keyboard and it works. I intend connecting a VGA monitor to the micro HDMI tablet port (microUSB to VGA adapter and VGA cable) and would like to know if there will be increased draw on the battery. Is there a way to supplement the power to the tablet as the charger uses the same microUSB port?

Looking for Info On These CNC Motors For Replacement

I purchased a surplus 2-axis CNC machine with built by Yamaha. I hoped to rebuild it into a new machine for myself, but it ended up requiring 200 volts AC for the controller and motors, which I don't have access to. I sold off the controller already. I don't know too much about professional CNC macahines, hoping someone has some input. I am hoping to replace the motors with ones in the same form-factor that run on DC or 120v AC(if such thing exists), preferably stepper type. I do not know what form-factor/package/mounting style to look for, or even if any are available with the power requirements I want.  Motors are the same for both axis and are part#: TS2620N664E122, attached are some pictures. Thanks,

With Motorcycles, Eco-Friendly and Badass Can Mix - Selection of Cool Motorcycles from Wired

I can't wait to take a ride on Yamaha's Tesseract. With Motorcycles, Eco-Friendly and Badass Can MixElectric and alternative-fuel bikes are the future of individual transportation not because of their fuel efficiency but because they are extremely cool. That's right. Creators of eco-friendly motorcycles are pushing the limits of their designs to make them desirable to a biking community that sees little difference between their (relatively) efficient gas engines and the new-fuel wave of alternatives. Riding bikes is all about the cool factor, so the crazier and more technologically advanced they get, the more people will want to ride them, clean fuel or not.Gaze upon the alt-fuel bikes most likely to break the mold of motorcycle design in the near future.

What are the effects of powering a 14 volt system with 12 volts?

I have some older, but nice yamaha computer speakers. there is an external transformer, and it says the out put is 14v dc, 800 mA. I am wanting to skip the transformer, and us a 12 volt sealed led acid battery battery to power them, placing it after the transformer. I would prefer to use the 12v battery as a 12v 5 ah battery is around 25-35 dollars, and a 14.4v 2ah battery is around 70 dollars. Would this do any damage to the amplifier circuit within ? What effects would this have on the sound quality of the speakers? Would I be able to be switch from 12v dc, skipping the transformer, and plugged into the wall using the tranformer if i wired it to be able to do so, and would that have any long term effects on the speaker?

Direction/turn signal indicators making them brighter with led bulb I need help pls

Hi. I somtimes ride a 1985 yamaha ms50 pogal 50cc moped. It has an 6v electrial system where as modern day scooters are 12v. I bought a knew indicater relay for it and checked all the bulbs as the turn signal indicators are not so easy to see flashing. I mean, on average sunny day other road users would need to look hard to see them flashing. the bulbs are 6v 15w and both old and knew flasher relays gives output of 6v 40w. I would feel much safer when turning if I had a bulb that gives a brighter flash to give other road users a better idea when im turning. I can see on the web there is a 6v 5w and 10w bulb I can try or even 6v leds but I dont know much about leds. the stanadard factory fitted indicater buld 6v 15w gives an ok flash at night, but in sunny daylight I would need to be close up to see it flash which is no good! I don't want to change the originality of this little ped since it has been carefully taken care of over the years and has made it in intact into current times as is. I need to come up with somthing that will work and if I replace a buld with a 5w or 10w when it should be 15w I may get a brigher flash or just blow the bulb. I wonder was there a problem or just bad design with the indicator lights on the yamaha ms50 pogal when they first came out in the 1980's as I have seen a couple of them fitted with suzuki fz50 indicators and other makes of bike turn signal indicaters on them. I don't think the flashers are faulty I feel they where just made that way. I could be wrong. I suppose there could be a bad earth on the flashers. Sorry to go on so much about this. Im looking for your suggestions for a brighter indicator flashers which is purely for safety reasons. If car drivers can see where im turning, im less at risk of being nocked off by them. Im thinking a higher or lower wattage incandescent 6v buld or even a replacment 6v led buld ive seen on ebay but as I said. I know nothing about led bulbs or even if they will work on my moped. Would a equivalent 6v 15w led give a brigher flash than a 6v 15w tradisional incandesant bulb? can someone help me here pls Here's the led ive seen on ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2pcs-E10-6V-9V-12V-24V-INDICATOR-LIGHT-BULB-LED-WL-ay-/330859527741?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash;=item4d08c3be3d these are the standard 6v 15w bulbs i want to replace with brighter led bulbs http://directshopping4u.com/6voltvehiclelighting/P244A10

TARDIS Console Desk/Entertainment Center/Networking Area

In a few months, I'm going to be in a new place somewhere, and have three active computers at once, not counting laptops, and the husks of old machines. I am also running out of space for all of these things. I was trying to come up with design project to one-up my other home improvement geek friends from college, and it hit me: A TARDIS Console. Take three cheapo desks, cut the surfaces in half diagonally, and remount them on a slight angle in a hexagon. Mount the computer towers on odd segments, keyboards, phone, modem, router, etc on evens, sling a monitor on one of the segments, and throw some random sci-fi crap around it. Throw a big light or something in the center, leave some cables loose everywhere, and put a layer of appropriate paint on it. Instant TARDIS console. That's the basics of it. It wouldn't take too much money, but a bit of time to do properly, especially the angled stuff. Add a little extra cash and a lot of extra time, and maybe use plexiglass and put some LED's as backlight. Put old circuit boards under the plexiglass, maybe use an old laptop with nothing but screensaver on it on one of the panels, and put some extra time into decorating and it'll look great. Maybe even build in an amp and an old Yamaha keyboard for fun. This is just some speculation and a bit of boredom on my part. I just thought I'd throw this out there.

Arduino drum kit combined with piezo triggered led lights?

Being a broke person combined with massive curiousity, i've started taking interest in diy electronics. What i've been wanting to make is actually a drumset with tons of pads and cymbals and is not only a midi, but has its own sound. But, while there are many tutorials about it, there aren't any that match exactly what i wanna make. (I'm not even sure how many midi inputs can be made using an arduino) Sooo, being a newbie who's 100% confident she won't be able to make something as advanced as that without clear instructions (yet), i wanna start off by making a drum pad like yamaha dtx multi 12. I should be able to make something like that since i wouldn't have to worry about something like hihat controller. And i thought it would be awesome if i can attach led triggered lights! But i have zero idea what i have to do :/ which arduino do i use? Where do i wire them to? There's an instructable here about it but his drum is an acoustic drum so he's using the piezo entirely for led. I want my piezo to act both as midi trigger and led trigger. Anybody got an idea? Actually, i want to make 2 LEDs for each pads. The first LED lights up only when hit, the second one will continue to light but change colour when the kick pad is hit. But i'm not sure if this is doable
