I want some help with the vs1680 - but the page for that machine is empty, so I'm posting here where there's a little more activty - the procedure is probably very similar

If anyone has had success with using sysex messages to switch funtions on this machine please email me & lend a hand

specifically, I want to switch on the function where it sends the meter levels out as poly after touch messages, but there seems to be a lot of interesting potential generally with the sysex "data set" commands. if only I could get them going

maybe Ive just got the checksum formula wrong

anyway, any help much appreciated.

Best workstation available. 64 autolocate points and the effects are fantastic. The steep learning curve puts off some. But one you get past that this IS the music making machine!!!

THE ROLAND IS A EXCELLENT PORTABLE RECORDING STUDIO, BUT I AM NOT IMPRESSED WITH THE A/D/A CONVERTERS THEY COULD BE BETTER

I have a Roland vs1880, very good mixer/recorder, but Roland failed in the area of hardware support. You have to buy Rolands cdr at a cost of approximatley $500 bucks to benefit from their recording setup. Is it really a benefit to pay that amount, in light of the current prices of cdrs?

Roland could have and still can update the software on the vs1880 to use many of the user friendly cdr's already available. Thumbs down on true hardware support @ reasonable price from Roland. It's a great vehicle but you just left the tires off.
