Question about Roland Mv8800 Production Studio

1 Answer

Roland MV 8800 No inputs, phono

All of the sudden my anolog mic inputs are not working as well as my phono inputs. I tried changing cables, I checked my volumes and everything. I also checked the setting in the MV 8800 to make sure that the analog left and right input option is enabled. Still I, cannot get any audio into the mic lines at all. My output side works for my headphones and speakers when I use the internal sounds on the pads of the MV 8800. But if I hook up a keyboard or guitar into the mic lines no sound comes out of the output side. Same goes for the phono input, no sound comes out. Are the inputs damaged? If so how can I go about getting it repaired? Or am I doing somthing stupid? Am I overlooking something?
Please help if possible.

It suddenly stoped working. Doesn't turn on anymore. What can it be?


Julio, If you already changed power supply and no success, it is probably a bad solder joint on board. I will post a link below that may help or you can try a forum.

Low volume from Fishman Loudbox Mini mic input, using brand new XLR cable and dynamic mic. Mic works just fine on instrument input using a Hi-Z cable so problem is not mik


I have seen defective XLR cables so check it with an ohmmeter. It is possible the mic input preamp has been damaged. If that is the case, the unit will have to be repaired.

I have a Roland AC-90. During a gig last Sunday I had my Taylor acoustic guitar and a Shure mic cutting out. There would be a break in sound - both guitar and voice would go - and then it would all come...


I would expect there is bad soldering or a circuit board crack. Inspect the soldering aound the leads, especially pots and heavy components. Finding all the retaining screws can be frustrating. Expect the screws for the handle to also attach to the amp chasis. They are often hiodden under plastic caps.

I have a very loud hiss/buzz sound coming from my Roland. It goes away if I lower the high volume knob. This just starred to happen recently. I tried changing connections from ch1-4 but no fix.


If this ties to a keyboard, make sure the keyboard and this are BOTH plugged into the same receptacle. You should send a higher level from the keyboard (turn volume up to around 70% or so) and use less volume at the input gain of this amp. Use more at master volume if the amp has one if needed. If the hiss is there with NO input cables plugged in and input gains at 50%, that is objectionable, the amp probably needs servicing. Unused channel gains should be clear down.

Hey, I have had used the Roland PD8's for a while but recently 2 of mine have just stopped working. Maybe I hit them too hard but I'm not sure because the rest of my pads work. One will work if I hit it...


Check the connections on the undersides of the pads--they sometimes get loose as the vibrations rattle them around. Tighten the nuts that hold the pads inputs in place and reinsert the cables until they sort of "click." If that doesn't work, it might be the cables themselves, so try switching them with one you know is currently working. It'll change which sound is triggered where, but you'll know it's just the cables that need to be replaced, not the pads.

I've owned a Roland AC-90 acoustic guitar amp for 8 months and am having problems with the XLR mic preamp. There is some very low-level output with the volume fully advanced, and with an external...


I don't have the exact schematic... however sometimes they have RF bypass capacitors to ground on the balanced input lines and one side gets shorted. The schematic I do have is for an AC100. It shows a rather unconventional input circuit. You can download it here and it MIGHT be close to your unit:

I note that this unit does NOT have Phantom power so you CANNOT use a condenser type mic with it unless you use a preamp with Phantom power... Maybe that is the problem?

This is NOT likely to be a problem with the power source at all but more likely with some setup parameter. Search your manual for subjects like "quantize" and also sampling rates.

Roland AC-60 Amp input impedances ?


I will solve the mystery...

The impedance varies depending on how you connect. It would be too complicated to explain the impedance to the average person.

From the schematic we have the TRS 1/4 inch jack having basically 100K and parallel 220 pf cap to ground EACH signal line and 10K resistance between. (The TRS jack if used disconnects the XLR and its components)

If one uses the XLR jack, one has an ADDITIONAL 100K each side in parrallel to ground PLUS an ADDITIONAL 2.2K resistor shunting between.

In ADDITION to the above, there is effectively 160K ohms to ground each side that is the input resistance to the input OP-AMP.

The effective impedance will depend on how and where you measure it.

Not sure what peizo you are using... For one on wife's violin we go into a X2 wireless which has about 1.6 Megohm. The receiver of course is fairly low impedance drive to the amp.

For the violin (Autolycus) pickup and others, severe distortion of the waveform existed when run directely into most amps and of course long cables worsened it at the high frequencies.
