Question about Roland Spd-S Sampling Percussion Pad System
does anybody know if there is some sort of converter-programm available so I can convert the ".SPD" files from my CF-card to .WAVs, so I can listen to them on my PC without having to "EXPORT" them to WAV on the SPD-S?
They don't mention in the manual that in addition to being 44.4khz, 16bit, mono, the wav file also has to be at a bit rate of 705kbps. Using Audacity (freeware) you can convert most any audio file into the necessary wav format for the DP-02cf to use.

SOURCE: removing files
Hold down the "Wave" and "Setup" buttons at the same time while powering on the SPD-S. This will turn off the protection; you should now be able to remove the file.
To turn the protection back on, perform the same procedure again.

I'll assume first that you have wav files on your PC that you'd like to import into your 2488 to use as percussion tracks.
You'll have to convert those files on the PC first into mono wav files. The 2488 can handle 16 or 24 bit so the bitrate shouldn't really be a problem. (It will also automatically truncate a larger bitrate down, but you should really dither the files rather than let them truncate... another topic).
You can use Audacity (free) to convert stereo wav files to mono wav (audacity will also dither for you).
Once your files are converted and saved on the PC, on the 2488 open the USB connection from the DISK menu. (This assumes you already have a usb cable connected between your PC and your 2488.) You will see a device appear on your filelist called HD_2488 or something like that with a drive letter. Copy your mono wav files into the WAV directory on the 2488 USB device.
Then on the 2488 press 'exit' to close the USB and from the WAV IN/OUT menu choose 'USB import'. You should see the WAV files listed. If those files are not mono waves you won't even see them listed. Select the file(s) and press enter to import. You'll be prompted to choose which track to import them to.
That's pretty much it.
