Roland MKS-50 Issues

Post by thereverendbrob » Tue Aug 06, 2019 5:03 pm

Anyone ever run into this problem with a MKS-50?

If I play a chromatic scale, I can only hit 5 notes in a row.. upon striking the 6th note I hear a PFFFFT (noise burst). But I can repeat the same note endlessly with no problems (although if the note is a "dead note, it will continue to cycle the PFFFT sound).

Here's a screenshot, several different takes of the same chromatic MIDI clip:

Also, there is a repeating digital "laser zap" type sound that continues even when all notes are off... and the noise floor is fairly high.

Any help is appreciated!
