Here is the ROLAND website. I am afraid that you have to give you e-mail to go further.

How to do transposition on Roland E-70 Intelligent Synthesizer from C to B


Hi,
I don't know if you still need this information but here's a button by button guide that I've done. I've got an E-70 myself. Now if I can only find that **** internal battery that stores all my sounds I'd be laughing.

Press Menu (the button on the right underneath the light-up display), make sure the arrows are highlighted around the 'Param' setting and if not, turn the jog dial anti-clockwise to get the arrows there. Press Enter and then on next screen press Enter 5 times to see the Transpose display flash and use the jog dial to change from -11 semitones to +11 semitones and press Enter or backup to come out of this screen. Now, whenever you press the Transpose button (the grey button on the bottom right-5th button in from the right), the keyboard will automatically change. You can store different sounds in different keys, so for example I used to play Knocking On Heaven's Door and had this lovely riff when I played in G but it didn't sound the same if I played it in A so I transposed it to play and performed live in A while playing it in G. As long as you what presets you use for different songs, it's quite easy to get used to.

If you haven't had a response or sorted it out yet, I hope this helps.

Kind regards

Steve

HI, I have a Roland Juno GI, (5 months old), have not programmed anything into it or changed any settings. However, when I started it today it was flat by 50 cents. I was sure of this by checking a D or G...


It sounds like it is transposed. Look for the transpose function in your user manual. It shifts the keys by half notes either up or down. I would be surprised that factory reset would not clear the transpose setting. First, realize that these keyboards are controlled by a crystal oscillator and they just don't drift enough to shift even one cent worth.

IF the unit is NOT transposed, then the other problem is LIKELY with the pitch bend wheel. Try the action of the wheel and make sure it responds by moving up and down about 50 cents. If it doesn't go both ways, it is possible the mechanism has slipped or been damaged.

Software problem, my keyboard prs s500 have lost it key arrangement order ,where by now key f is found in key g, .please help me how to restore its arrangement


Look in your manual under "transpose". The transpose feature shifts the keys up or down often up to a full octave. This allows you to play in ANY music "key" you know and generate sound in a different one for say a vocalist who only sings in another...

My Roland Rd-500 has no sound....the factory demo


You either did not get the ribbon cable seated OR got it upside down.

If this cable is the flat ribbon with exposed solder plated points of contact, OFTEN those connectors have a latch to release by GENTLY moving tabs on eaither side in the direction of pulling the cable out. This lock MUST be moved out slightly to allow the cable to seat properly. The solder plated contacts will be FULLY into the connector when seated properly.

These cables ALSO can be inserted backwards and NO connection will be made.

What is better, roland e-09 or roland e-14?


Here is the spec sheet for the Roland E-09:http://www.rolandus.com/products/productdetails.php?ProductId=828 The Roland E-14 was manufactured in 1996 and the specifications are not easily available on the internet. If you are considering buying one (E-14) make sure it is in good shape with everything working and you can get it cheaper than a new E-09. If you really want to compare you will have to find a manual for a E-14 and download a manual for a E-09 and compare the features side by side. If you have an E-14 and are considering purchasing a new E-09 find a local dealer who is selling the new one and see if you can take yours there and compare them side by side. Comparison should be a personal decision. I might like a Chev and you might like a Ford. You pretty much have to decide for yourself. If you are buying one look at your budget and compare other keyboards with similar features. Also consider whether the amount of playing you will do might justify saving up some money to buy a higher end Roland if you are particular to Roland. Let me know if this helps.

Roland RD-700SX as MIDI keyboard


Theres a good article at recordingreview.com. If you join which is free you have access to a lot of great information. You can download Midiox to troubleshoot your midi connections etc. Make sure that your transmit channel on your keyboard matches up with the receive channel in your program. Hope this helps.
