I have a file that was not "closed" properly because the battery life died while recording. There is information on the file, but it cannot be read. Is there a recovery software for MAC that will recover this file?

This is a common problem if proper closure cannot be done is is not done by mistake.

You MIGHT try asking this on the VSplanet.com site where they discuss these recorders.

You may have to reformat your unit and of course lose the data.

We laid down 5 tracks of a new song and listened to them. We then changed screens to open another project (song) and the song we wanted to open (all 24 tracks) is GONE!! The other 21 songs on the machine...


Somehow proper save and shutdown was not done. You said the magic word PANIC... That is a deadly word in this situation. So first thing like for lost files on a PC is to look around... carefully. LIKELY the files are still there, just under a different folder or imbeded in another project. These systems do a pretty good job of not letting one clobber their files without confirming AS LONG AS proper shutdown procedure is used or power doesn't fail. The five tracks you might have forgotten to save...but the other should be there.

I had recorded 16 complete songs of my own on a 512 mb sandisk sd card. When the card was almost full i removed it and recorded other new songs on another card. when i re-introduced the first card it had...


A very important thing when using these recording devices is to PROPERLY close the media. I would not panic at this point. Search for a forum regarding the Boss Micro BR and ask there as somebody may be able to help you recover the data. Read up on your manual about shutdown. I have Tascam recorders and I prefer to stop the recording and then when it is done I turn power off before removing the media. You may have to use a special procedure when introducing the nearly full card... even forcing it to load.

Assuming you are running windows XP you need to

1. right click the speaker in the lower right corner and select adjust audio properties.

2. Select the audio tab

3. Pull the drop down menu under sound recording and make sure it is selected to your audio driver device. Most are either soundmax, creative(for soundblaster and audigy standalone cards), realtek, or ASUS.

4. Next repeat step one but select open volume control

5. Go to options and then properties

6. Select the circle for recording and make sure your mic input is checked.

7. Close that window and recording mixers will pop up. Select the input you need by checking the box in the lower left corner of the mixer channel. Adjust the level and then use your recording program or sound recorder under Program files>accesories>communication>sound recorder.

I want to use my sd card to put my own songs and when i change the song from an MP3 to MIDI file using the program WIDI 3.3 Pro. When i put the MIDI file which is the song, into the Sd card and then into...


You need to understand what the program is doing.
An MP3 file is a recorded music performance like a phonograph record. A MIDI file is a set of instructions for performing music, like sheet music. The converter program is an attempt to turn the record into sheet music. There is no perfect way to do that. You should have gotten something out of the program, though. It sounds more like a computer problem. Try a very simple sound file, convert it to MIDI, and see if you can get something out. If your keyboard can't read it, try putting any known good MIDI file on the card and read that. Possibly your keyboard will only read certain formats or sizes or speeds of cards. See if the manual tells you anything. It might read FAT16 regular speed cards under 1 GB, for instance, and balk at a SDHC 16 GB NTFS formatted card. So, do some detective work.

The driver software in your computer for this device is NOT properly installed or is missing.

Some of these recorders require additional software in the computer to work propely.

I have a behringer Xenyx 1622 mixer and am using cubase when i plug it in the it says its ready to go but, something happens and theres no volume..and i cant set it up in cubase?...any suggestions..


When you open Cubase you MUST open a new project.

Then select 24 track audio for example... unless yoou are doing MIDI record and playback.

Then open up a mixer panel and select a channel to read or connect to a file.

There are too many options to describe and the "says its ready to go " is not enough information to know where you are.

You may have to imprt files or record music... Don't forget to select a track on the display of tracks.

Marshall MB4410 - Dies and comes back to life every few minutes..


Our bassplayer had the same problem with his mb4410. As it turned out, the fan was not working when the amp got hot. It did turn when cold - go figure! Swap the fan for a good quality (Pabst, Sunon) 80mm pc fan with 2-wire connection. Three or four wire fans will not work w/out modding. See your local pc guy and ask for an unregulated, silent 24/7 fans. He will know. Our bassplayer sold the P.O.S. while still in warranty. HTH.

Micro BR power Adapter


You may have damaged the data on the memory card. If you have no display at all carefully read page 125 of your manual.If it doesn't display with the adapter plugged in try new batteries. If it still doesn't display anything, contact the dealer you bought it from or try contacting Roland. This site should help:http://www.rolandus.com/support/service_centers/
