This is my very first post here after many years using these threads as a valuable and trustable source of information.
I have a Roland FP-90 keyboard and I am pretty satisfied with it so far. I am a professional classical pianist and this keyboard allows me to study after-hours at night when I need to, which is great. However, there is this issue I have not been able to deal with.
Let's say I am practicing a piano concerto with orchestra and I want to record the orchestral reduction to play along with it when I practice my solo part. The problem is that the pedal seems to be recorded in the same channel I am playing afterwards, meaning that my pedalling when I play the orchestra part will affect my solo playing, and the other way around.
I find it very unfortunate that the keyboard's manual does not provide any in-depth information of how things work in order for me to try to fix it. I don't know too much about DPs, MIDI, and all this world, but my guess is that I am using the same channel for everything, including the pedal. How could I use, let's say, channel 1 when I record and channel 2 when I play together with the recording so that I get two independent pedal signals? This was extremely simple to do in my old Casio keyboard, I guess -and hope!- that said feature is available in a high-end instrument like this.
Has anyone dealt with this issue before? Any thoughts? I have searched on the Internet without success so far, I guess this is something really simple and stupid I just cannot figure out.
Thank you very much in advance and congratulations for the great job in the forums
