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!

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.

What could be causing a strange static sounding noise in the headphones only when pressing PFL on any channel.


The "PFL" Stands fo r"Pre Fader Level". Just in case you did not realize. so when you press the "PFL" button , and the red light goes out?, You're saying that the hissing goes away and that you have clarity. Yes? and the volume presents no issues? Also correct? Part of that simply, is with the PFL in the on position. You are engaging the fader for one, which will add to an already boosted signal ( the the fader is turned Up?). also you may have your Clip set incorrectly. to set this you turn PFL off, then at your signal input level Dial (usually at the very top in-line with your fader. _ set the volume on your device, then input clip level on the board \ to where the clip light comes on. not a steady light, but a blinking light so make it steady, then back it off a hair. Okay? this whole time make sure your mains are down. or off at the faders. Once clip is set., PFL is in off position, gradually turn your mains up to level. Now, the PFL is for when you have more than one signal. say from an instrument on another channel. unless you have that? No need to use the PFL. If you do have an instrument in line,. then, before you turn PFL on,make sure that your fader on that channel is turned off. -turn on your PFL, then gradually bring that to level. never messing with the mains level.

I know that is a lot of info. but it is a process. that should eliminate any hissing you may have heard.
Good luck!!

How to program drum beats from one alesis sr16to another alesis sr16 drum machines


5.4J Copy a Song to Another SR-16 Via MIDI
The SR-16 can send Song system exclusive information to another SR-16 via MIDI. If you have only one SR-16, you can skip this section.
1. The source SR-16 should be in Song mode and stopped. Connect the source SR-16 MIDI out to the destination SR-16 MIDI in.
2. Select the Song to be copied.
3. Press and hold the COPY button, and keep holding it down until step (5). The display says COPY TO SONG.
4. Do not enter any destination Song number-just press PLAY to send the data out over MIDI. It will end up in whatever Song number had been selected at the receiver. If the Song was not empty, the new Song steps will be appended to the existing Song steps.
5. Release the COPY and PLAY buttons.
Caution: This does not transfer Pattern information, only the song steps. To transfer Patterns to another SR-16, see section 3.3D and 3.3E.


Hopefully this helps, it comes out of the SR16 Manual, page 40 I think
Cheers Pete

I can't get any sound to go through Mackie 1604-VLZ3. I've tested to insert sound to every channels and checked all button positions and nothing comes out from main output or the phones....


There is NO way to select channels to "Source"... The selections on this mixer are to send the channels to SOLO, Sub1-2 or Sub 3-4 and/or main L-R. You should have the bottom button for each channel punched down to L-R. NEVER connect ANYTHING other than an external effects unit to the INSERT jacks!!!! These jacks are combined output/input jacks with send and return on the same jack. Special insert cables are used for these. An external drum machine should be connected to a line input for one of the channels USING a TRS balanced cable. Page 28 of your user manual shows the block diagram and signal flow diagram. The trim control is the input gain control. Start with those say at 12 o'clock and advance the fader for the channel of interest...you should get signal at the main outs. MAKE SURE that the lines from the mixer to the amps are BALANCED TRS type cables... You cannot use unbalanced cables for this. The user manual explains balanced cables and what they look like. I just repaired one of these mixers that some foolish people plugged stuff into the MAIN INSERT jacks and blew out the driver that drives the MAIN insert which kills the input to the MAIN output drivers. There is one small chip between the AMAIN fader and the sub next to it and one has to remove every knob and take the unit all apart to get to it... It is a tiny surface mounted part the size of a matchhead with 8 leads... not for the faint of heart to repair. As a test of this part, you can plug a st of headphones into the RIGHT MAIN insert jack and drive audio into a channel... turn trim control up fully for the channel and the fader on full, and set the PAN control to 12 oclock and punch down the L-R button for that channel. You should hear the audio in ONLY the left ear... Now try the phones in the LEFT INSERT jack... you again should hear the audio in the left headphone only (these jacks are not stereo like the headphones). If you cannot hear anything, then likely somebody has blown that driver in your unit... It is painful and time consuming to repair this... there are hundreds of knobs to pull off and put back on... dozens of screws and cables and to get it all back together. Also make sure ALL of your interconnected equipment is powered from a SINGLE receptacle or power module. Read your user manual thoughroughly. You can get one online download if you need it.

No sound


There can be any number of reasons for this problem - solve it diagnostically by starting with something that you know is working and work through systematically to the other end.
  1. Test a microphone on a separate amp to make sure it works okay. Check amp and speakers working. Check that all output cables from mixer to amp are working by testing separately.
  2. Plug microphone into a channel on mixer. Also plug in headphones and turn headphone volume control up.
  3. Make sure input sensitivity knob is turned up a bit (say half way) and main output faders (yellow) are up.
  4. Check that channel is turned on (little button just above the channel fader- needs to be pressed down)
  5. press pfl (pre-fade listen) button (next to button to switch channel on)- do you get any sound on main output or headphones or any indicator lights on mixer to show signal is getting that far (eitehr the individual channel metering lights or the main ones in the central section)?
  6. turn off pfl - make sure channel fader (slider) is up - normal position is ) - about 3/4 of way up. Check lights again on individual channel and main output section - any signs?
  7. Is the sub mix button for the channel pressed down - in which case you will need to bring sub mix (red) output faders up as well as main faders.
  8. If you have got signs of signal on the individual channel but not main see if the channel has been routed somewhere odd (like a subgroup of channels).
  9. Plug a working amp and speakers into one of the auxiliary outputs and use the relevant auxiliary send knob (on each channel just above the faders and pfl switches) to pan some signal to that auxiliary out - do you get anything? There is also a headphone socket for listening to the auxiliary channels (with a selector switch /knob to determine which one - make sure it is in the right position) try listening to the auxiliary output with headphones - anything? If yes the problem lies in the main output section.
  10. Check that there is not a jack plug in the insert socket (to route signal through an external effects unit) without a matching return jack being plugged in - if appropriate is relevant effects unit switched on and correctly set up - if unsure remove the insert plug to take it out of the system.
  11. Make sure any mute buttons are not switched in on main outputs.

On my yamaha v50 keyboard there is another sound on the keys after the c3 key how do i turn it off to just leave the synth sound?


you must do master reset!

1) Turn on the power.

TIP: All buttons must remain depressed and be pressed in the order mentioned in step #2 for proper execution.

2) Press and hold down the [SEQ] button, then the [CARD] button (located next to the Demo button), and then the [DEMO] button.

3) Continue to hold the buttons down until the dialog box appears in the display. The display will first indicate the V50 Test Program and Main Rom Version then will automatically display the question: 'Test Entry Manual?'

4) Press the [DEMO] button. The screen will display: 'Factory Set?'

5) Press the [+1/YES] button. 'OK' will appear beneath the 'Factory Set?' readout, indicating completion of the Factory Reset, and the V50 will automatically return to Play Mode.

How to use Audioline Pro DJ Multimedia Mixer M Dex 3.0


I have been recently using this Cd Dj deck at parties and have some general knowledge of the product, it has alot of potential. Is there anything in particular that you need help with? Or is it the general concept of using them.
Currently, i don't think there are that many websites that explain how to use the Cd decks, however i can provide you with some basic information. Most of the information here could be worked out by trial & error.
- Pitch control on the right of each cd deck can be slid up ( slows it down %) and slid down (speeding the track up %) i think the pitch control has a range of either +-10% or +-16%.

- Cue button, has the potential for Cue'ing or setting up the cd to instantly jump to the "cue'd" point with the press of this CUE button. This is done by either pressing play/pause button and rotating the jog wheel to a point of time in the track which automatically sets the cue point OR holding down the >> or << search button to find a spot within the track at a greater speed.

-Vinyl mode. Pressing this button will set the deck to the "vinyl mode" to simulate scratching or even backspins. pressing this button again will change the mode back.

- the Crossfader (or 'X' fader) button will select the left cd track if the x fader is all the way to the left and the right track if the x fader is all the way to right. having the X fader in the middle will play both tracks together.

- Low, Mid, High. These nobs on the middle section of the deck change the individual track by which it is corresponds. (Left side = left cd track, and vica versa) Low refers to the Bass of a track which can be essential for mixing two tracks and elminating excess bass noise. Mid refers to the drumming and even synth of a track, and changing this can result in some cool sounding effects. High refers to the 'high' frequencies of the track playing, such as snares, hi hats and possibly vocals. All these controls are crucial to understand in order to mix 2 songs together successfully. It's good to get a chance to muck around with these cointrols. The middle of each control resets the setting to normal or default.

- Channel fader. the two controls that slide up & down on both sides of the mixer on the deck. This is also referred to the volume setting. Useful for mixing seamlessly one track into another.

- Gain. This control at the top of the mixer refers to the volume level or 'gain' of the cd track that it corresponds to.

- Jog wheel. Serves 3 purposes. firstly it can be used whilst a song is playing to temporarily speed up or slow down the track to match with the song on the opposite side. secondly, whilst holding down the 'search' button, operates as a control to quickly find a spot in a song. and lastly when selecting "vinyl" mode, can simulate the reaction of a vinyl turntable. The scatch function, and backspin effect.

- The pitch button, is just another control to speed up or slow down a song temporarily whilst holding down the '+' or '-' button.

- Reverse button, for a certain amount of time will play the song on the left or right in reverse.

- Time. this button is essential to change the time selection on the cd deck, to either "Time elapsed", "Time remaining" and "total time remaining on the cd".

- the "tap" button, allows the user to physically "tap" the button in time with the song's beat, which calculates the Beats per Minute (Bpm) of that song. which is essential to work out the bpm of 1 track to mix the speed with that of the opposite deck.

- Cd/usb/sd, changes the mode of system reading. from CD to USB or SD card.

I really hope this general guide to using the Audioline ProDJ MDex3 has helped!
Peace. Marc.

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.
