SOURCE: How To Turn Drum Beat Off

From what I remember from my recent tinkering you press the guide select button. Then either use the patch/value know and parameter buttons, OR it may be the guide level knob to switch the volume down until it is off. I believe I then saved the patch to preserve the setting and keep that irritating guide at bay! It really should be more intuitive, ideally knod turned to zero = OFF. But no. Ah well, hope you get it sorted. I have a problem too, maybe you have same one? It may be the unit itself. Search - Beggining of loop missing on FIRST playback - if you get a chance. Let me know if yours does it too?

SOURCE: When I turn on my

Hi. I had the same problem and fixed it by clearing all the phrases. An explanation of how to do this is below (written by someone else, not me) But, expect your guide beat to now sound like a fuzz instead of a drum. This really sucks and there is apparantly no fix for the guide sound except to send it back to Boss. Good luck.

1. Start by selecting Phrase 1.

(if the 'REVERSE' or 'AUTO START' are lit press them off.)

2. Select 'INST & MIC' by pressing 'MODE'

3. Hold down 'EXIT' and 'AUTO START' together - at the same time, this should light up the green LED for 'LOOP PHASE'

4. Hold down 'WRITE' and 'EXIT' together
then hold 'WRITE' on its own
then 'WRITE' and 'EXIT' together again...as if you were clearing a phrase.

they should light up in red and flash, if not try a combo of section 4.

5. Repeat on all Phrases 1 - 11.

When i press the record button for overdub, the light doesn't turn on. how can i fix the light?


It's doubtful that the LED itself is burnt out, so it's most likely a problem in the circuit. I doubt it will be user-servicable, so take it into the repair shop.

I have the Roland Boss Rc-20xl Loop Station, and I'm running off of batteries I have been since I got the pedal. In the middle of recording a phrase the pedal shut off and started resetting itself...


Hello!
I am not positive on this but I would try to clear all of the loops. Try holding the right pedal for about 5 seconds.
If that does not work, hold the right pedal for about seconds while you turn off the unit. Release the right pedal then turn the unit back on.
Hope that helps!

Guide on RC-50 won't turn off


First, you need to select one of the patches called "init patch", it won't have a drumbeat on it. Then, turn the guide on again, then all the way off. Even if the knob's in the off position when you go to the patch, it'll turn itself on again by default. There's a light there that says "beat quantize" that you want to be off, or it'll cut your loop to the length of whatever beat it's set to. If you want to change the default, turn the beat quantize off, then press "write" and write the new patch. Hope that helps.
