Need to adjust touch sensitivity on a roland ep85 keyboard

I need to adjust the sensitivity on a roland ep85 keyboard. There is no user adjustment; however is there a 'special' way to do this? i.e. two keypresses? The ep95 has a two position hard wired switch for soft/hard, so I think that there may be some generic method?

SOURCE: YPG535 keyboard is touch sensitive

Yep! Each key has two contacts, These are often conductive rubber pills that are pressed by the keys onto circuit traces completing the circuit. One of the contacts makes before the other so the procesor can measure the time between the closure of the two contacts. When one of the contacts doesn't make, the velocity is sensed as MAXIMUM so it HAMMERS !!!

Your problem is a contact isn't making... Your probllem to fix it is to ACCESS the contacts to clean them. Clean the contacts with ONLY 99% isoprophyl alcohol and Q tips.

This will not be user fixable. Check the Roland site for a service center near you.

Are the currently manufactured Roland Home Piano series pedal assemblies compatible with the Roland HP237?


This wish an after market pedal, or the original 3's connector? If the keyboard is on when you plug and unplug that, it is likely due to a voltage reference getting confused. Usually when you get constant sustain then most likely a switch is stuck closed, or open, down there in the pedal. How these things work normally is that a pliable switch is opened, for sustain, or closed. It depends on the keyboard. Some keyboards have a setting inside them to accommodate both types of pedals, and some pedals have a switch to choose either. Your keyboard does not have a setting that I can tell, other than adjustments for a resonance option (nice feature). I am not sure the newer RPU-3 pedal is compatible, it seems to be for the newer models. If you are handy with a volt meter, then can check the cable's pins for a common, then a pin that changes with each pedal (use continuity mode, beeps when circuit is closed). Could be a piece of dust is in there, or hair or carpet stuff, and a good cleaning would fix that from blocking the normal function. Manual Link: http://media.rolandus.com/manuals/HP-237_OM.pdf

I have a TD9KX and the problem i get is right in the centre of snare the sound seems to overload or is too sensitive. I cant get rid of this even when adjusting sensivity.


If the drum set is older, the cone that is in the center that transfers the hit to the piezo is degraded. You can find replacements on Ebay. You have to remove 4 screws to get the bridge under the snare out and then peel off the old cone from the piezo disk CAREFULLY and then stick new one on. The point of these goes bad. You will then want to adjust the height of the cone with the adjuster screws so it is barely, barely touching the drum head.

My KD-8 bass drum pad will now only trigger if it is hit really hard- I've tried altering the sensitivity at the brain to no avail any ideas please ? Thanks


SOME of these have a small potentiometer inside the pad part... The pot is VERY fragile and one needs a small jewler's screwdriver to adjust. You have to be careful as excess pressure on the screwdriver breaks the part off the circuit board inside. The access hole is only about 1/8 inch diameter.

My roland td3 drums are playing the crash noise on every drum i am hitting even when crash is disconnected, why is this please?


Your Xtalk filter is set too low. Refer to the owners manual for how to adjust individual triggers' sensitivity to "cross-talk" (vibrations carried from other pads)
My bet is you unplugged the crash trigger, but not the cable from the actual module (the brain). If you have a cable connected to the brain but not to a trigger, than any little bump to the end of the cable that isn't connected can be picked up as though you hit the pad normally. (play with the end of the cable a little, you'll see what I mean. It's kind of neat.)

I my gr 20 is only picking up e a d g b and not the last string ,is there any way i can test it to find the fault please thnk you


If you want help from Roland you will have to register:http://www.rolandus.com/backstage/login.php That will get you access to full support and their email address. I think you are having problems with your GK-3 pickup. Make sure your string that you are having problems with is the optimal height etc. The adjustment for the GR-20 is in the manual at this link:http://www.roland.co.uk/assets/media/pdf/GR_20_Q_A.pdf Make sure your pickup is installed correctly and adjusted properly first. The manual is here:http://lib.roland.co.jp/support/en/manuals/res/1811530/GK-3_e11.pdf If you have everything adjusted and only one string is not working then I would guess you have a cable problem and the best thing is to contact Roland for advice. I didn't walk you through the adjustment because every installation for every guitar is different. Hope this helps.

Roland GK-2A pickup. g string does not respond


I have the same problem. Only the 1st, 3rd and 5th strings respond. This is not a sensitivity adjustment. The unit does not see the strings. I called Roland and was able to purchase just the pickup itself rather that the entire GK-3. The pickup was about $35 but took 4 weeks to arrive. When it finally got here I was excited. It was not difficult to remove the old and replace it with the new. I plugged it in. NOTHING CHANGED! I believe and hope it ti the 13-pin cable. I have read where these cables are just poorly made and many users have spent a considerable sum on the cable, most recommending having one in reserve always as they are sure to go out.
