Question about Roland Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I just need to know how to connect my Roland KB500 out from the KB500 amp to the main mixing board? Should the connection plug into a distinct (fader) channel on the mixing board? This would be for sound reinforcement at a live gig, not for recording. Thank you!GP (newbie, obviously, LOL!)

Hi...
Use the line-out from the KB500 into a channel on the mixer.
That should do it.

Rate my help if it helps.

FCan get my Ipod to play through my Roland TD-20 Mudule


You need to get yourself a cable - with a 3.5mm male jack plug on one end (which will fit into your ipod), and a 1/4 inch male jack plug on the other end.

(you could use a lead with a 3.5mm male plug on each end, and used a 3.5mm female to 1/4 inch male adaptor to achieve this)

Connect the 3.5mm end into the ipod - play a track, with the volume at say, 75%.

Connect the 1/4 inch end of the cable to the 'Mix In' input in the back of your TD20.

Use the 'Mix In' control - at the top right hand side of your TD-20 module to control the volume.

If you wish only to have the iPod going to (for example) headphones - and not Front Of House (PA) speakers - which you will have connected via the Master and / or Direct Out(s); this can be achieved in the 'Mixer' settings (accessed via pressing the 'Mixer' button).

I would like to know how to properly connect my roland kc350 to my yamaha p90 for execellent stereo sound. seems like the sound is not quite perfect when i plug into left/right inputs on amp from...


Correct connections to connect your keyboard to your roland amp, and then the amp to the PA would be:

Two mono 1/4" jack (regular guitar leads) leads to connect the sockets labeld L and R on your P90 into channel 2 L and R on your amp. (channel 2 is better as you cannot overload it like you could on channel one, which has enough gain for microphone)

Then, using either the jack or XLR (XLR would be better if your PA mixer can accept them) sockets on your amp labeled LINE OUT, hook up your roland amp to your PA. Make sure to use the correct line outs on the top panel, NOT the stereo link or Sub outs on the back.

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.

How do I connect my samson amp to my samson MDR10 mixer?


on the mixxer, use the "mix" "L" and "R" outputs. use 1/4 inch instrument cables, and connect the mox L and R to the amp's "channel 1" and "channel 2 inputs". always turn the mixing board on first, and the amp second- when turning off turn off the amp first, and turn off the mixer second. start with the mixer levels at the lowest, with the amp levels about 1/2 to 3/4 up. slowly raise the mixer channels first and then the mixer main volume until you have an adequate volume.

Check for corrosion on battery contacts. If this unit can use an AC adapter, often the switch contact in the power plug that connects the batteries when adapter is removed gets bent and fails to connect the batteries.

I like the sound of my practise amp but it's not powerful enough can i connect it to a larger amp without getting feedback/distortion?


you can use the record outputs to run the signal into a stereo receiver without problems, though it would likely sound better with a shure sm57 microphone hooked up to a mixing board or other instrument amp.

the record output should be PERFECTLY balanced to hook up to a consumer-level stereo reciever with NO distortion; however, this record output might be too loud for another instrument amplifier or a mixing board; hence, the microphone in the latter situation.

short answer- "yes, but..."

Roland kc 550 amp After it is warmed up for an hour, the output to speakers clip in all channels.Distorted and low volume.


Hello: You seem to have a heat related problem, I guess is that you are dealing with cold solder joints on the Preamp supplies or the Main board. This could also come from a faulty Vol control. Check for grey looking solder connections in the unit epecially around the output transistors in the main amp section. All solder connections should look Shiny. Check all capacitors for leakage or buldging at the tops. Seems when the unit has generated enough heat inside the unit the connections open up causeing distortion. When the unit is cold the connections make contact until heat is formed in the unit, So I say you have an Intermittent connection. Sometimes these can be very tricky to find. So use the handle of a screwdriver to tap gently around the unit while its open to see if you can reproduce the sound errors before it heats up.

I have a roland keyboard mixing amplifier, KC-550. With an ipod plugged in, its only playing one channel, regardless of which channel I plug into, and the keyboard is also not sounding full. Not sure if...


The KC-550 is a MONAURAL amp and since the Ipod emits STEREO you have to use a special cable to MIX both the left and right from the Ipod into a single, monaural signal.

You can MAKE a cheapy mixer that will serve your purpose by using a series resistor, say 1K from each of the two Ipod output channels to go to the single mono input to the KC-550.

I would build it this way: Find an old IPOD cable or any 1/8 inch stereo cable and seperate the two wires and the shield. In a 1/4 inch plug, connect the shield from the Ipod cable to the shield (barrel sleeve) of the 1/4 inch plug. Connect one lead of each of TWO 1K resistors to the TIP connection of the 1/4 inch plug. Connect each of the two signal leads from the Ipod to the two remaining floating resistor leads. Insulate the splices.

DON'T forget to put the shell for the 1/4 inch plug over the cable before connecting the cable to the 1/4 inch jack. All parts should be readily available at Radio Shack.

I don't know that I have ever seen a suitable ready made mixer cable for this function.

In order for this to work, you need what is called an "insert" cable. This will have a balanced 1/4" connector on one end and 2 1/4" mono-connectors on the other. The balanced connector is also known as a TRS connector (Tip,Ring,Sleeve). You should have "insert" jacks on the mixer. Place the balanced connector into whatever insert you wish to use (usually this is inserted into the main insert). One of the 1/4 plugs is for input, one for output. I don't know which is which for your specific unit, you will have to experiment. Keep us posted. Dan
