Question about Roland Boss BR 900cd Digital Recorder BR 900

1 Answer

Enter button not working

I'm sending this again because the last time I had a typo in the subject line. I have been using this recorder for many months with good results. Last week I noticed that the I had to hit the enter button several times in order to get it to work. A few days later it was working fine again. Then it seemed that I had to wait longer than usual before recordings or edits were processed and I could proceed. Then the enter button just quit working. Everything else seems to work fine. I can record, play back, change virtual tracks and go through all the menu options until I have to hit the enter button and then I can't go any further. I would really appreciate some help, because I use this machine a lot.

If this is a traditional keyboard (not laptop) or extremely fancy keyboard.

Try unplugging the keyboard. Then.

  1. Take a butter knife and slide it into the crevice next to the "enter key".
  2. Apply a small amount of pressure to pry the key upward.
  3. With little effort the key should pop off or slide off.
  4. Check the spot the key was for dirt, dust, food, etc. Clean it if you must. Make sure the actual key does not have anything stuck to the bottom of it.
  5. Push the key back onto it's place on the keyboard.
  6. Plug back in and see if that worked.
If this did not work, you may need to replace the keyboard OR you may want to make sure no viruses are playing an aweful trick on you.

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.

SOURCE: Hello, My Boss CS-3 Compression Sustainer

Make sure you use Alkaline battery and NOT rechargeable type... the rechargeable battery will NOT work in the pedals (their voltage is lower even though they are labeled as 9 volt replacement).

Other internal problems can be due to cracked circuit board or broken solder joints. These are very common as people step on the cables when plugged in. This breaks the connection inside. A fuzzy sound often occurs when one of the contacts is marginal due to bad solder at the jack terminals.

The audio kept cutting in and out while using the Samson Stage 5T 3-in-1 Headset Wireless. It lost audio for about 30 seconds at a time. At the time, it was connected to a Samson MR 1064 Mixer that was...


The unit is SUBJECT to radio interference from other systems in the area such as high power taxicab radios for example and other services. 30 seconds might be about the time for a radio transmission. The system, while being interfered with, likely will NOT generate audible sounds and due to the squelch algorithm may MUTE the system.
Sorry, but you are a SECONDARY user per FCC definition and they are licensed and you are sharing bandwidth. You cannot interfere with them, but they can interfere with you. You should probablly get a UHF system that has less chance of interference. While recording, frankly I would be wired, not wireless. I am both an electrical engineer nd a HAM so I am aware of these problems.

Re: Casio WK-210. Audacity, Jet Audio and Ctrl Pnl allow me to choose a USB PnP "record from" option, however, no sound is being recorded from the Casio to the PC. What am I doing wrong. Many...


Pat, the USB output on the Casio WK-210 is only capable of sending and receiving MIDI information. It's not sending any digital or analog audio. Audacity is primarily for sound file editing.

In order to use the keyboard to record onto your computer you can connect an audio cable from the 1/8" stereo mini-jack to an input on your computer. Then you can record into Audacity.

Or you can acquire MIDI recording software (ie. Logic, Cubase) and then using the USB output on the keyboard, you can control and record multiple MIDI instruments in those programs.

1) how to make my amp record....because its not working when i try... 2) do i have to a cord in line 1 and 2??? 3) do i have to plug in the cord in :.....line in or line out??????


You will use microphone with balanced XLR connector into the XLR mic input. Note, the ALpha does NOT have phantom power so you cannot use condenser mics.

A guitar can be plugged into the hi-z instrument 1/4 inch jack on the left front of the unit.

To use the line 1/4 inch inputs you will use BALANCED TRS 1/4 inch cables from your source.for these channels. The level on these needs to be line level.

The line outs are for sending audio out to an amp. There appears to be RCA outputs you can use as well.

I am not sure what you mean by making your "amp record"... An amp PLAYS the audio, usually into a speaker.

If you are trying to play a guitar through your amp AND record, then you will connect your guitar to the Alpha, the amp input will have a cable from say Line 1 OUTPUT and when recording wou will have the echo feature on so your guitar is passed through to the amp.

Br8...the enter button has become harder and harder to make activate...now nothing. Everything in the unit works fine...except the enter button...which means that I cant record anything at all.


The button is obviously bad... The next thing is to determine what type button is used, It may be a small module or it may be a conductive rubber one. The latter, you take apart and clean with 99% isoprophyl alcohol and QTips. The module type you unsolder and replace the little module.

How to use an external effects processor on the tascam neo


Manual here:http://www.fullcompass.com/common/files/10255-Tascam%202488-neo%20manual.pdf If you look at the back you will see two effects sends. Apparently from the manual you can use the line inputs for returns. This is where it might become confusing. Each line in is also a TRS jack. That means that using a common guitar or unbalanced cable will make the jack act as an input. If you use a shielded !/4" stereo cable( stereo jacks on each end) then the jacks can send a signal and receive a signal. If your effects unit has one of these jacks also you just need the proper cable. If not you use a cable with ends that match your unit and the Tascam. There are several combinations of effects assignment available and you should consult the manual carefully. I would recommend joining a support or users forum for this unit. Try this one:http://www.sweetwater.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25978 or this one:http://homerecording.com/bbs/showthread.php?t=276889 The last one is a site worth joining and I highly recommend it.
