Question about Boss Rc 50

1 Answer

I was trying to transfer data from the RC-50 to my computer and pulled out the USB cable by mistake from the computer and now the RC-50 says Data Damaged. I think I may have put the file in the trash in the process also.

Usually in any type of situation when data is being transferred and the connection is prematurely lost there is data lost and or file corruption.



My suggestion:

Connect the Boss Rc 50 to your computer and backup its entire contents to your computer if possible.

Next perform a Hard Reset: While simultaneously holding down the "PLAY MODE" and "LOOP SYNC" buttons, turn the power on. Everything should be restored to factory settings.



If your backup was successful, then you can transfer desired files (one at time) to determine if the are usable. If a file causes errors or malfunction, then most likely it is corrupt.



Hope this helps

Corrupt data


PX 410r uses IDES 4.0 downloadable from
http://www.casio-europe.com/euro/emi/specials/ides/downloads/
and not another version.

I suggest you uninstall the Casio USB driver from Control Panel'system'device manager then Reboot the PC without the USB cable.
Download latest USB driver from :-
http://support.casio.com/en/support/download.php?cid=008&pid=20
64 or 32 bits versions are both available.
Load driver first. Plug in the usb cable only when software tells you to do so.
Uninstall Data manager if wrong version.
Install IDES 4.0

Im trying to connect two rc-50 via midi! I want one of the them to act as a master and the other one as a slave. The goal is to have both machines working independently but have all loops on each rc-50 to...


While you can probably get the functions sent by MIDI to transfer to the other unit, syncing PROBABLY isn't going to work very well because there is a lag to form the MIDI sync clock (serial data) and then receive it, decode it and do something with it.The transmit time is about 1/3000 of a second and receiving is at least that much time. On rhythm things I have found the ear can hear 1/1000 of a second easily. If one could set the machines to use an EXTERNAL sync clock and drive the SAME clock to both units, you might be able to sync them together time wise as they would see the sync at identical times.

I want to transfer some midi files to my Casio LK-230 keyboard. When I plug in the usb cable it does recognize the casio unit but it does not show up on my computer...like there is not unit... How do...


The keyboard will NOT show up on MY COMPUTER as it does not have memory to record and save MIDI files... It will PLAY them real time as the computer sends the data to the keyboard. You can't transfer and save the files IN the keyboard. Some higher level keyboards do have memory and even hard drives... this one does not. This one will have some built in,that you can play but even those you cannot access as if they were memory.
With the USB cable connected, you should be able to see the device listed in the device manager section of the control panel under system hardware.

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.

I receive the message "memory full !" after 5 seconds of playing, which normaly means you have to empty the datas, but on my computer I can see no data in the boss...


I have this, its a lovely looper when it works. what I think is the problem is that you need to empty the trash. If on a mac just go to finder and press empty trash while the unit is attached to the computer. If using a pc then follow the same procedure to empty the waste bin, as its called on a pc. Hope this helps!

How do I transfer music data off my korg Triton keyboard's floppy


Either the floppy format of the Triton is not PC compatible or maybe you don't have a floppy drive on your computer? If the latter, buy a USB floppy drive... about $20

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
