Roland MV 30 startup disk

I can't seem to get the disk image to write to the disk! Bought a USB drive compatible with XP, downloaded rawwrite, and it just won't work! Taped up the hole so it thinks it's a 720k disk.....still nothing. Another program said that the disk wasn't formatted....but how do I do that? Is there anythi...

Re: buying my first set of monitors

I bought a set of Mackie MR6 powered monitors and a matching ten inch powered sub for $1000 new (In Australia, so we get reamed price-wise over here) and I love them. Sure, not the best, but they do the job for me well enough 8-)

Boss KM 600 mixer volume pot

Does anyone know where I would find a volume pot for a Boss KM600 keyboard mixer? I can't seem to find one anywhere! Any help would be great!

Re: Cleaning sticker residue off synths

Tried the Eucaliptus oil, and it sort of worked..... The gunk over the Korg lettering on the back of the synth came off easily. The c**p on the face where the buttons are eventually came off, but it took ages, a lot of rubbing, and it seems to have slightly discoloured the surface. Anyway, it's heap...

Thats what my wife said!! :lol:

I didn't believe her.....now I'm going to try it.

I was thinking about using some Prepsol, but wasn't sure about the effect it would have on the lettering.

Cleaning sticker residue off synths

As per the title. I took delivery of a Korg M1 that was covered with stickers. I managed to get all of them off, but there is yucky sticky sticker residue left behind, and some of it is on the lettering. Is there an easy way of getting this stuff off, hopefully without damaging the Korg lettering? A...

Re: Opinions on the Roland W30?

Well, I paid $250 AUD for it, with all the discs plus spare blank ones, SCSI Zip drive (apparently need different system disc version for it) spare zip discs, etc. Thanks for the tip about the sound processing of it, I might play with it a bit when I have the time.....but I really do hate the fact t...

Opinions on the Roland W30?

I just bought one.

So far, not that impressed! It's mono!

Takes ages to load the demo discs. Sound quality not that special, either.

Will I learn to love it?

Interested to hear opinions on this unit before I invest time into learning how to use it.

Re: Converting Korg M1R from 117v to 240v

I reckon you might be right there.....unless someone has a 240v power supply board kicking round....

Thanks for the reply (again!)
