JD990 firmware upgrade ... stuck chip??

Hi all My JD990 has a v1.0 OS and I recently bought a v1.05 chip. I've read a few threads on how to swap out one chip for another and it seems pretty simple. The installed chip appears to be sitting in its own socket (not soldered in) ... I tried to remove it but its stuck and I'm not sure just how ...

Re: Help needed setting up my Scarlett 6i6 / Mix Control

Madtheory / Meatball ... thanks for the info. I've setup other mixes with Mix Control without any latency problems but this particular setup has thrown me for a loop .... I suppose it's just a case of connecting the head bone to the neck bone. I'll read the tutorial and give it another go. Thanks fo...

Help needed setting up my Scarlett 6i6 / Mix Control

Hi all I am using a Scarlett 6i6 and I'm having trouble working out how to route the instruments in my band's setup correctly using Mix Control. A bit of background: Our bass player recently left so as a stopgap, I'm using a bass synth that is being controlled by a Live channel containing an Externa...

Re: Midi control of a JD990 with a JD800

It's possible to add JD-990 bank select 80, 81 with midi-ox data mapping. By switching between two maps, you could access 128 x 2 = 256 patches. http://i66.tinypic.com/2saz66v.png Hi Sonus Thanks for the tip but I was hoping that there might be a way to access these other banks directly from the sy...

Re: Midi control of a JD990 with a JD800

Greetings Z Changing patches from the synth would be easier in a live setup .. i can bend down and change patches on the 990 but it's not as convenient. I'm not 100% sure what the 800 midi specs are but it definitely doesn't want to co-operate ... maybe there's a workaround. I know about changing th...

Midi control of a JD990 with a JD800

Hi all Just a quick question for those of you who control a JD990 with a JD800 synth. I have a 990 hooked up to my 800 and I am stuck on how to access some of the 990 memory banks with my 800. If I manually switch the 990 to INTERNAL sounds, I can access all internal sounds from I-11 to I-88 using t...

How do you find Bank and Patch MIDI numbers?

Hi all I was wondering how you find the corresponding bank and patch midi number for a particular memory slot on any given synth? Some of the synth manuals I have don't really give you any info but instead have pages and pages of hexadecimal-dense data which means absolutely nothing (to me anyway!)....

Re: Roland JD-990 with vintage synth expansion VS XV-5050

Hi Danchenka I have just bought a JD-900 and I'm using it with a vintage keys card that I used to use in my XV-5080... the sound of the 990 really is fantastic. I originally owned just a 5080 and as I had nothing to compare it to, I thought that the synth was perhaps the best I ever heard 9certainly...

Re: Using an expansion card in a Roland JD-900

Hello Tekhed66, I remember there was/is a special way of accessing the Expansion Board, yes. I don't know what manual you have but the one I just downloaded from the Roland website does describe the procedure: Utility Chapter page 17. ;-) You basically need to access the board, write the patch to t...

Using an expansion card in a Roland JD-900

Hi all ... I'm hoping someone can help me with a small problem... I just picked up a JD-900 and read about all the fantastic sounds especially programmed for it on the Vintage Synth expansion card... I already have this card in another synth so I swapped it over into the new JD-900. The problem is -...

Re: Rackmount synths - playing inbuilt demo songs

It's a multitimbral synth. I KNOW it's a multi-timbral synth ... that what it says on the tin, doesn't it? My question was HOW is it playing all of the midi parts... does it require an external midi sequencer to play the parts or can you program the melody/rhythm parts directly into the synth and t...

Rackmount synths - playing inbuilt demo songs

Hi all I was looking on this website at the entry for a JD-900 and played the video clip for the in-built demo song. The JD-990 doesn't have a sequencer so I was wondering how the 990 was playing all of those parts? Is the synth (and others like it) connected to a separate midi sequencer that plays ...
