Question about Roland Music

Open Question

Hard reset is not working on my BOSS BR-1600, any suggestions?

I tried the hold down button underneath fader 5, utility, and whatever other button I was told to press while powering on, and I did get to a new screen. However, that screen is frozen, just as the initial power-up screen is frozen. I have read of other people having this same problem, but I have not read if they ever found a solution. Thanks!

SOURCE: boss br-8 digital recorder wont load up. powers up but no program

This Sounds Very Bad Do You Have Experience With Taking Apart Computers? If So You May Want To Open Up Your Br-1180 And Remove The Hard Drive And Put It In Your Computer And Copy All The Data Off Of It. I Also Would Recommend Calling Roland They Are The Most Helpful People In The World.

SOURCE: Micro BR power Adapter

You may have damaged the data on the memory card. If you have no display at all carefully read page 125 of your manual.If it doesn't display with the adapter plugged in try new batteries. If it still doesn't display anything, contact the dealer you bought it from or try contacting Roland. This site should help:http://www.rolandus.com/support/service_centers/

SOURCE: just bought Kingston 2GB SD Card for Boss Micro BR

This is likely a compatibility issue. Turn power off and remove the card and make sure the unit comes back to life.

SD card compatibility can be a problem.

You might want to go to VSPLANET.com as there is a lot of info on forums about recorders.

Hi. My boss br 1600 will n ot start. I turn on the power source and it will blink for a split second and then nothing. I checked for loose connections but everything seems ok. Any suggestions?


I have this problem with mine. I've did some research and with the boss br 600 this problem can arise quite often .it's caused by a faulty power diode apparently except in that case I've never heard ofrom the screen blinking at all (which my 1600 also does) I wonder I'd this problem can be the same for a br 600 as the br 600

BR8 Digital recording studio lights up, but it doesn't do anything else


I called Roland at the number that you provided and gave they following proceedure which will re-intialize the BR 1180 and ERASE everything that was created on the HD:
  1. Simultaneously hold down button beneath volume control at track 5 and Undo/Redo button at upper right
  2. Press power button while holding down buttons as above, until test menu comes up
  3. Turn selector dial untill initialize screen shows
  4. Prdess ENTER and initialization will start
  5. Once initialization is completed, power off unit and then power it back-up.
NOTE: This proceedure erases all data!

Is the Boss Dr-5 compatable with the Boss BR-1180 mini studio?


Midi doesn't actually "make sound". If your trying to record the patterns you made on the DR-5 to the recorder you need to use an audio output(I don't remember if they are RCA or 1/4" on the DR-5.) The midi output would be used to"trigger sounds" in another device that has sounds built in, or you could also trigger sounds in a program that supports midi input.

MY Boss br 1180 ,disk error


before you go out and buy a new hd try intializing your system.
unfortunaly you will lose all saved info, but you will either way. this test may save you some money.
with your 1180 in the off position press and hold the track 5 button below the fader and the redo/undo button that is just to the left of the rotarty knob and below the power button. while holding these two buttons press the power button and continue to hold the track 5 button and the undo redo buttons untill the test menu is showing. its takes about 15- 30 sec. in the test menu rotate the value knob till you see 23 initialize HDD and press ok. this process may take up to 30 mins. if this doesnt fixya then contact roland for a replacement.

Reason as a sound module with the 8800


I have a boss 1600 and ive used it in the way that sounds similar to you situation.It sounds like you have overdubbed track 1 to next track.If you dont want to hear track 1 while rec. track 2 turn fader down, unless you have already recorded or overdubbed 1 to 2.You should be able to hear track 1 unless you turn fader down or cancel tracksound for the time being.track 1 swhould be heard but it wont be re-recorded youll only hear it unless you turn fader down.Thats how mine works anyway.It lets you hear it if you want but wont record until you song save or during bounce nd mixdown.Then you select the tracks and or the virtual track you want to use.Id try to undo or stat again and read about the overdubb in manual.Im sure youll figure it out.I cant hardly imagine what all that 8800 has and is capable of doing.But ive seen one and i think the midi devices work alot alike.Hope you get it.Praisehim316.
