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 – Dallapé (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 #58-66 are sets originally intended for a Roland FR-4x, and though they work on the 8x, they are not 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 (03/25/2017), 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 orchestral 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?
Also don’t forget, each UP has 14 different options (one per register!)

NOTE:  As of March 26, 2017 this information is complete and accurate.  As I make changes, I will try to update this page.
