I'm an experienced SPD-S user and there is no option that allows the SPD-S to produce random sounds from the same PAD.

I can think of 3 reasons why this may be:

  1. In patch mode, a PAD can be assigned with 2 different sounds (wave A & wave B). Wave A will be produced on soft hits while wave B will be produced on hard strokes. To ensure only 1 sound is produced by a specific PAD, make sure no sound is selected in wave B (only wave A will be produced regardless on the force of the stroke).
  2. Your PAD has a very strong and moving effect turned on (such as a phaser or a filter) that makes your wave to sound different between hits. Turn off the effect (press on the Effect button until the light is off) then hit the pad again to see if it fixes your problem.
  3. If none of the previous 2 solution fixes your prublem then your SPD-S is probably malfunctionning.

Roland Spd-s pads not working


Check for a cracked PCB internally from the two defective pads, or if the wires have detached from the trigger. You may not need parts, but if you do, it really depends on how helpful the Roland distributor in your area is as to whether you will have any luck getting them, or you may have to go trough a local authorized repair shop.
Good luck.

Boss FS-5U Pedal - How can I get it to change patches?


Try the follwing:

press <SYSTEM>

press <PAGE+> until CONTROL SW is shown.

press <ENTER>

Parameter: CtrlSW

press your FootSwitch (FS-5U) so the indicator-LED on your SPD-S for the footswitch is lit (or hold down <SHIFT> while pressing <PAGE> until footSW is lit)

Change the value of CtrlSW by pressing <+> / <-> until PATCH+ is shown on the display.

.. this should solve your problem.

By the way:
if you go to: ftp://ftp.roland.co.uk/productsupport/Manuals/
you will find the manual of the SPD-S for download.
On page 79 is the description for your request.

Best regards,

Roland SPD-S Flash card error


The card I have always been using is now also suddenly giving this message. I found an old SanDisk 16MB and a 1GB SanDisk that works perfectly in my Boss 864 and they also give the same message. Trying to go into formatting brings the message "no card!"
