The unit has lost the operating system and is in a BIOS type program waiting for you the send in the operating system file via MIDI. Download the file from the manufacturer and connect the unit via MIDI to do the transfer. The manufacture's site should have the directions. BE VERY careful as this is likely a "flashing" of the internal program memory and you don't want to lose power while doing a flashing.

Why is there no sound output?


Hi, I am answering this generically, because there are a few things that can cause this on a lot of keyboards.
  1. Make sure there are no headphones connected. I have removed headphones and the 3.5mm plug comes out leaving the adaptor, this still cuts the speakers.
  2. Sometimes the switch on the headphone socket does not make properly, work the headphone jack in and out a few times.
  3. Local MIDI should be set to ON, if you cannot find this, as it is often buried in some deep menu, link MIDI out to MIDI in with a cable.
  4. Do a reset, be careful as some restore factory defaults and you will lose user presets, so back up, MIDI dump first, others allow resets that do not affect the voices.
  5. connect to your usual software (sequencer, patch librarian, etc) and see if the keyboard has been muted, volume set to zero etc.
  6. Is the volume knob turned up?
All the best, Chris the fader.

TD20 backing voice plays on everything no matter what...


no matter what pad i hit the slapbass wave sound would play..
i unplugged all midi connections..
i turned the backing parts volume down..
i removed all my patterns from the kit...
i did a factory reset...
and there it was STILL!! dang it!!
after calling Roland and hearing they have never heard of this problem before
i took the unit apart and removed the backup battery.
( didnt want to send my unit off..omg i am broke enough.)
i also pulled the ribbon cables from their holders and and then i put everything back...it factory reset when i turned it on..
(yes i had myown personal backups beforehand)
BooM! Mr TD20 was back without that slapbass wave! yahooo!
i dont know what caused it, but i was doing some major midi routing
experiments with my comp thru Sonar6P, midiman 4x4, and my Roland VSynth...and it did just kind of show up at some point when i had the backing voices turned down i guess..
it still persisted even after the TD20 was turned off for a day and half and i turned it back on to see if it still was happening...yep, i was hoping it would fix itself..lol..i hope this helps fellow musicians..play on!!

How do you do a hard rest with the m-audio axiom 25 generation 2 ? DirectLink stopped working, I need to find a way to fix it.


Hold down the LOAD and SAVE buttons while powering on the Axiom will do a hard reset. This will erase any presets you've set up and restore the Axiom to the factory defaults.
Hope this helps,
Stewart

When i turn on the Fantom G8, it shows a blue screen with this message "Roland Fantom (S/W updator) (B)


Somehow you have activated the mode to download a new operating system into the unit. It likely is expecting the new SW to be presented form source such as MIDI, USB, or stick.

Get it out of that mode before something gets clobbered. DO a Factory reset which will consists of holding certain buttons and turning power on. Find this procedure in your user manual.

I am assuming that you are imbedding the changes in the midi sound files themselves. They will need to be on a separate track with the correct midi channel assigned at the beginning of the track.

I could not able to select the tones.It needs to be reset to the factory level.Please help me to reset the Keyboard to the original status.?


Sometimes companies use the same sequence for all their synths...

Here is one to try:
How do you reset casio keyboard lk-60?
This is how. 'Turn keyboard of for 5 seconds then turn it bak on and play"e-flat,g-flat,e-flat,b-flat,g-flat,e-flat,g-flat" then turn keyboard of and unplug and wait 5 minutes then plug back in in,...
Note: It is NOT clear if you need to hold the notes down as you play them or press and release.

Here is another for Casio:
From the FILE menu, select INITIALIZE to select the sub menu. Select the SYSTEM option to return the keyboard to its factory settings. Keep in mind that this operation will delete anything that is stored in the keyboard memory. When you see the InitSys? on the screen, select YES. I hope this helps......

I could not find anything specific to the 810.

If these don't work, then the way to reload is via the MIDI port which will accept Sysex commands and data. You can probably find a data dump online for this at the Casio site..
You will of course need to have a MIDI port on your PC.

I bought an Alesis SR-16 drum machine from an online seller advertised as "new". I plugged it in, and it appears that my "new" machine has had all the factory preset patterns erased! Is there a way to...


Hi.

The SR-16 has 50 preset patterns that are built in, I do not think they can be deleted, if there are no patterns the unit may be defective, even if patterns can be reinstalled using an rmidi file or re-flashing the unit.

To reset an Alesis drum machine you have to hold down both Play and Erase buttons while you power on the machine at the same time.

If that does not work, the presets are held into an rmidi file , the Rmidi file is not available for download. I think it can be purchased contacting Alesis or Rmidi.

I quote from Alesis Rmidi page:

"A rMidi Import/Export File named 'Sr16PresetKits.xml' containing the Sr16 Preset Kits has been installed within the folder named 'Sr16' within the directory in which you installed the rMidi FrameWork software. You can Import these Kits into the rMidi Drums Control if you wish. "


Check if you have the file in the folder.

If not the Sr16 will allows you to export your User Drum patterns, but I do not think you can export factory patterns.

Connect usbtocomputer


Hello - I am too a personal owner of a CASIO CTK keyboard, a little older than yours (model CTK-601) a great keyboard BTW, and I have connected it to my computer successfuly.

There are 2 ways of connecting the keyboard to your PC......Using the MIDI outputs and a special MIDI to gameport adapter - if you have a very old system and have a joystick port (D-sub shape) on your soundcard or PC, then you use that cable. Of course this is legacy and stopped existing in newer computers, now USB is used.

Only the professional line of soundcards have direct MIDI inputs. For most of us, with consumer soundcards and PCs, there are no MIDI inputs.

The good news is that newer keyboards support USB MIDI and features direct USB connection - so all you have to do is install the drivers that are provided with your keyboard, usually a CD, and follow the instruction to install the USB drivers for your casio keyboard, BEFORE you plug in the cable (very important!) once installed you reboot and connect your keyboard using a USB cable

Now if your keyboard is older and has MIDI outputs, like mine for example, you will need to purchase a MIDI to USB adapter, those have MIDI cables in one end that plug to your keyboard and the other end a USB connector....... I don't know about the rules if I am allowed to post websites, but the product i'm using is the Uno from M-Audio - in google do this search:

"m-audio"uno

(exactly as shown above with quotes, and uno outside quotes)

Your CTK-810 may alreayd have a USB connector on it, as it is a newer generation keyboard - I am pretty sure it does - what you will have to do as stated above is located your bundled CD-ROM and install the USB drivers - you will need to purchase a USB cable (seperately).
