Re: Roland D70 - Editing with Tone Palette Sliders

New (well old probably. Ordered from Syntaur) slider board installed last night. Works like a charm. Thank you EB for pointing me in the right direction :D

Re: Roland D70 - Editing with Tone Palette Sliders

Tried the cleaning to no avail. But they seem pretty rough when I slide them so replacement it is.
All good.

Re: Roland D70 - Editing with Tone Palette Sliders

Thanks EB, Here's what I tried over the weekend. Re-initialized using "Hold down 8 and turn power on". Tried the sliders and they still "slide" into their values once you stop using the slider. But, if I pinch the actual fader and move it with a little fingertip resistance, I can land on my preferre...

Roland D70 - Editing with Tone Palette Sliders

I rebuilt my old D70. Fired it up and reloaded the factory settings via Midi. This is my third...lol. A lot of peeps can't stand this machine but after so many years, I just can't get rid of it. But I digress. Here's my quandary. I find when I'm editing, for example, Tuning, with the Tone Palette Sl...

Re: Kawai Q80EX - File format question

Re: Kawai Q80EX - File format question

Great suggestions both ways. I'll try them tonight. Although I opened the files in notepad and I think they might be too small to be files for any synth I have. I'm thinking they're data files for a Roland R5 I have in a box. But again, I'll give both a try tonight. I still have a floppy drive and M...

Kawai Q80EX - File format question

Good afternoon, Does anyone still use one of these? I had one many moons ago. My dilemma is; I found some files on a hard drive called ***.dtx I'm sure these are files I saved of sysex data from various synths and drum machines I had over the years. I saved them as the "Exdata" format in the Q80EX. ...

Re: How to recover factory sounds in my ESQ-1?

If you haven't already, I might be able to help you with this. I did a factory reset and factory sound load for an ESQ-1 last year. I think I still have the files and the manual. Let me know.

Re: Standalone Sequencer

Check also Kawai Q80EX. 32 tracks, 32 MIDI chanels, two MIDI outs. Good choice. I used one of these for years. And it had it's own format (instead of SMF..which it still can decipher) to load and save onto. Which made it super fast. Two MIDI outs were handy too. Why did I sell this??? Silly rabbit...

Re: Roland D-70 help

I've had a D-70 for many years now and have repaired it, rebuilt it, and mucked around with it for just as long. I just can't bring myself to let it die because it's done me well. If I could find another, I'd probably buy it too. One thing I have done often is clean and/or replace the rubber strips ...
