Roland FP-90: multitrack recording, midi channels and pedal

Hi everyone,

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 smile

Thanks for your answer, but I am not using any additional software. I tried changing the transmit channel also, but it didn't seem to work.

I take it that you're playing the orchestral part on the piano? And recording it as MIDI in the piano?

Instead ... record the performance as audio on a USB stick. Then play it back on the piano as you perform the piano part.

In the user manual on page 10 it says ...

SMF RECORDING
- The performance is recorded as MIDI data. SMF format 0

AUDIO RECORDING
- Your performance will be recorded as audio data.
- WAV format, 44.1 kHz, 16-bit linear
- In order to use audio recording, you must connect a USB flash drive (sold separately) to the USB Memory port.

Use the latter. When you playback an audio recording the sound cannot be altered by the piano pedals.
