Re: Roland D50 Pitch Bend Weirdness

I have replaced the entire pitchbender unit in my D-50 with a U-20 one. Check this:

D-50 pitchbender replacement

Any pitchbender from a U-20 / JV series might fit.

Re: Custom-built multi-bank Roland M-256/M-512 memory cards

I've tested the card in my D-50, JD-800 and U-20 and it works fine! It does not work in my JV-1000 though. Keeps displaying 'The datacard is not formatted properly'. Dojoe already told me this problem will probably be fixed :-) So far: A.W.E.S.O.M.E. I can store 64 internal + 1024 ram card patches o...

Re: Custom-built multi-bank Roland M-256/M-512 memory cards

Hi Dojoe,

I have no idea if you're getting my PM's because I can't seem to get them out of my 'outbox' :roll:

But I am still very much interested in one of those cards. :-)

grtz.

Re: Roland u20 keys help

Is it exactly the top 5 keys? (not 6?) The top 5 share a single lead in the ribboncable. That one was damaged in my U-20 and the top 5 keys didn't work at all. I made a bypass to fix this. The flexible print and the ribboncable are insanely fragile on a U-20. When I take one apart and put it back to...

Re: Roland u-20 broken buttons

Replacing the tactile switches is cheap but a lot of work.. I have replaced them on many synths including a U-20. You need 6x6x5mm 2-pin tactile switches. You can easily find them on eBay. They cost around 5 euros for 100 switches. Or buy them of eBay where the add says: U-20 tact switches kit. You ...

Re: TR 505 - No Closed Hats

I've had an 505 where several drums wouldn't trigger. Took it apart and cleaned the inside: still didn't work properly. Then I did a factory reset (Power on while holding MODE and PATTERN GROUP KEY A ) et voila :-) everything worked fine again.

Re: Roland D-50 modulation on pitch stick not functioning

Check if the plastic bender is properly fixed to the potentiemeter. There is a tiny screw at the bottom of the bender that might need fastening.

Re: Custom-built multi-bank Roland M-256/M-512 memory cards

I have a lot of Roland synth's this will fit in :-) I can supply pictures of a JV-80 / U-20 and maybe some more if needed.

Question: can one of these cards be used with multiple synths? Say Bank A & B for my D-50 and C & D for another synth? That would be cool :)

Re: Help for my Roland D70!!!!!!!!

I've repaired a Roland D-70 once with the same problem. After a few failed tries with silver glue/paint to repair the traces I cancelled the little flex cable all together and glued 16 wires on the flexible print with 'Wire glue'. Then I soldered the wires on the connector at the other side. Very ug...
