Sounds change by themselves on my xp-50

The sounds in perform and patch just change sounds automatically, while Im playing, no buttons are being pressed! I'm pretty sure the problem is linked to something electrical, becaues when I play at home, everything is fine. But when I plug in at practice or a live gig, the sounds just change by themselves. I just had a new plug and some buttons replaced on it, But the problem is now worse!

It sounds like maybe a bad ground or a bad solder joint. If you can open it up check around the boards for bad solder joints. Usually they look dull. Sometimes a component is not solder very good and will be through the hole loose. Intermitent problems are hard to find. All depends how long ago you had in worked on,but.... you may just want to take it back. It also could be a loose processor if its in a socket. Oh ... use a magnify glass to look at the solder joints its a lot easier to see. Hope this is helpful.

The ACMP function doesnt work when I play, even tho it says it is on in the display window


Check you have selected 'sync start'. The ACMP selection activates the automatic chords but not the rhythm, so each note produces a droning chord. Sync start activates the automatic chords and rhythm you have selected when you play anywhere near the bottom end of the keyboard. Alternatively you can manually press play to start the drums by themselves and then the chords will begin the moment to play with your left hand.

Tip

RC looper and DR880 syncing.


RC-50 & DR-880 Setup
Rather than using the RC-50 to change patches on the DR-880, I have connected an FS-6 footswitch to both the RC-50 & DR-880. This gives me control of both units, I can select up & down through the patches easily.
Use a dual TRS connector and 2 stereo "y" cables connected to ports 1,2 & 3.4 on both units.
Once connected, you will need to assign the control function for each control port. I assigned Patch Decrease to CLT 1,2 & Patch Increase to CLT 3,4 on both units.
I then connected a MIDI cable from the RC--u control of start/stop & tempo via the RC-50 footswitches.

My Ewi is playing most of the patches in Bb and some in others keys. How can I fix it? I 've reseted and nothing changes


You may need to do a factory reset. It sounds linke a transpose setting has been invoked. Read your manual under the word "transpose". A factory reset, if required, usually involves holding one or more buttons or keys down while turning on power and holding them until the reset is acknowledged.

How to do transposition on Roland E-70 Intelligent Synthesizer from C to B


Hi,
I don't know if you still need this information but here's a button by button guide that I've done. I've got an E-70 myself. Now if I can only find that **** internal battery that stores all my sounds I'd be laughing.

Press Menu (the button on the right underneath the light-up display), make sure the arrows are highlighted around the 'Param' setting and if not, turn the jog dial anti-clockwise to get the arrows there. Press Enter and then on next screen press Enter 5 times to see the Transpose display flash and use the jog dial to change from -11 semitones to +11 semitones and press Enter or backup to come out of this screen. Now, whenever you press the Transpose button (the grey button on the bottom right-5th button in from the right), the keyboard will automatically change. You can store different sounds in different keys, so for example I used to play Knocking On Heaven's Door and had this lovely riff when I played in G but it didn't sound the same if I played it in A so I transposed it to play and performed live in A while playing it in G. As long as you what presets you use for different songs, it's quite easy to get used to.

If you haven't had a response or sorted it out yet, I hope this helps.

Kind regards

Steve

Como resetar o gfx8


zoom GFX-8:
The All Initialize/Factory Recall function is a special function
that lets you reset the GFX-8 to the condition in which it was originally shipped. When All Initialize is performed, all settings of the unit including all user group patches are returned to the default condition. Factory Recall can be used to reset only specific user group patches group to the default settings.
1. Turn power to the GFX-8 on while keeping the STORE key depressed.The display shows "ALL-INIT".
• To perform All Initialize, Continue with the next step.
• To perform Factory Recall, Use the BANK UP/DOWN foot switch and foot switches 1 - 4 to select the patch (from a user group) that you want to return to the factory default condition.
2. Press the STORE key once more.
All Initialize or Factory Recall is carried out.
If All Initialize was carried out,
the unit automatically returns to the play mode.
Note that when All Initialize is executed,
the contents of all patches stored by the user will be overwritten (erased).
When wishing to cancel All Initialize/Factory Recall,
press the EDIT/CANCEL key before step 2.

I cleared one folder called WAVE with my computer and now there´s a messege on screen "data damage". the folder contains the preseted sounds inside. i need help.


Here's a hunch:
When the RC-50 was hooked up, your computer had access to the internal memory. The WAVE directory is where the wave data is stored. The RC-50 must have noticed that the wave data for patches that were supposed to have data was in fact gone.

So, you can probably just do a factory reset:
With the power off, while holding both single/multi and loop-sync, power the RC-50 up until it greets you with SYSTEM/PATCH use the PARAMETER buttons to go back and forth. In your case, you can probably leave "SYSTEM" alone and just select PATCH. Once you've selected which section of the RC-50 you want to reset, hit the WRITE button.

ALWAYS to answer your question, refer to the "MIDI IMPLEMENTATION CHART" for your MIDI instrument.

This chart can be found USUALLY near the end of your user's manual.

This chart, among other things, will tell what can be transmitted and received by the MIDI device.

Refering to the chart for your DX21 it shows that the DX21 can both receive and transmit program changes.

If you don't have a user manual, download one here:

Beggining of loop missing on FIRST playback only, on Boss RC-50.


Ok, solved this problem by visiting roland U.S. site as the help offered in this country is useless. The instructions given by email would not have worked even after the update was installed. Luckily, there are instructions that come with the download. If you have same problem as me go to http://www.rolandus.com/products/productdetails.php?ProductId=772&tab=downloads&skip=true

and update the opperating system on the RC-50 to RC-50 System Update Version 1.01.

Then hold loop sync and phrase 2 button (think it was phrase 2) to change it to sound priority mode. Then it will play back correctly what you recorded on the first loop, rather than missing the first beat.

Am v.happy I have found this, as after much searching I can't find any other loopers out there that offer 3 seperate loop tracks and the ability to switch between them effectively. Plus, it's a very convenient size, better than a load of rackmounted stuff to haul around.

However.....

Another problem..

When hitting the reverse switch ( I assigned both external footswitch and the onboard Tempo pedal to reverse) the change is not instanteaneous. There is a second or so delay before it plays in reverse. Not a problem for most, I suppose, but I have a piece that switches rythmicaly between playing forward and reverse which means hitting a pedal in time and reverse/forwards changing immediately. I think they could do with another software update to solve this. Now I have to keep room in my enormous pedal board for the old rc-20, as that does the reverse as it should - when you hit the flippin switch!

Can't access internal sound and performance patches


Go to http://www.thedx7.co.uk/ Click on 14 Battery Change which is a walkthrough. You will; have to do a sysex data dump to restore the sounds. All that info should be on that site as well as some other great stuff. Hope this helps.

RC-50: Importing wav. files from computer to loop station.


Hi I just got a RC 50 and I face the same problem but looking the content of the data in the Roland folder (after you connect the USB) , I notice the format of the label of each sound's and I understood the problem. So , here it is . Before you connect to USB , you have to choose a patch , let say n.16 OK, now the audio file that you want to import into the data folder must be named in this way "016_1.WAV" ,the 16 refer to the patch number and 1 is the phrase number (if you want to put the audio file into the phrase 1 ,or 2 if 2 ecc.) now disconnect the USB .At this point you just have to increase or decrease the patch number just one time and go back to 16 (it has to refresh the patch info) and you'll find your audio file ready to use in whatever phrase you put it.
have fun
