What is where?

December 12, 2016

My knowledge of the FR-8x is slowly growing, but my setup is also starting to get more complex.  To help me know what is where in terms of settings, set locations and so on, I am making this page of notes.

Please note, currently this page is as yet incomplete!

 


Current Expansion sets installed:

1 – Alpine  (manual)
2 – Dallape (manual)
3 – AccOrchestra (manual)
4 – Balkan (manual)


The 8x has the ability to store 100 sets.  So what sets are installed in what slots?
Also don’t forget, each SET has a minimum of 14 different options (one per register!) or more (ORCH 1 and 2 have options for 2 presses per register button!)

NOTE:  Sets #60-68 are sets originally intended for a Roland FR-4x, and though they work on the 8x, they are not all 100% functional.  In certain registers in the display you will see a “NOT FOUND” message in the ORCH1 and/or ORCH2 sections here and there.  This is addressable by modifying the set with any instrument of your choice, and saving the set.  As of this date (04/18/2021), I have not touched this but I likely will make some changes later.  Also don’t forget, each SET has at least 14 or different options (one per register, some ORCH1/2 sounds have *2* registrations, so if you hit the same register a 2nd time, you get a different sound!)


The 8x has the ability to store 100 USER PROGRAM sets.  So what sets are installed in what slots on my V-Accordion?

NOTE:  As of April 18, 2021 this information is complete and accurate.  As I make changes, I will try to update this page.
