I've found another couple bugs pertaining to recording :
As always, on USB.
1st bug :
When the recording is done, and I get the popup menu with Save, Erase, Replay,...
Whatever my choice on this menu, I get a short "Song loading" window (it gets longer for longer recordings), and then I'm back on the menu and have to enter my choice again...
This is especially frustrating when you just want to delete the recording to do another take because you have to hit Erase > Song loading screen > hit Erase again > Confirm Erase > wait a bit > Record (twice because of a previous bug I mentioned)
2nd bug, and this one is reaaally bad.
It happens sometimes when I record pieces of at least 4mins (at least, I haven't seen it yet for shorter recordings), and leads to permanent loss of recording files
I've been using the same USB since I got my CA79, which has been working fine up until a week or 2 ago when I started encountering the issue (granted I did not perform a lot of 4+min recordings up until recently).
So when you finish the recording and get the menu with Save, Erase... you hit Save, and then the 'Song loading', then 'Save' again... then enter the name, and then the screen takes longer than it should, and ends with an Error stating :
The Player/Recorder has stopped due to an error.
If this error message is shown repeatedly, please
restart the piano.
If this error occurs repeatedly when using USB
memory, please try formatting the USB memory or
use a different USB memory device.
When you get the error, you hit ok, and then you're back to the main SK-EX screen. Subsequent recordings do not work, nor do playing files from the USB through the 'player'.
When I look at the USB on my computer, I see a kawairectempfile.tmp
file which is empty (0B) and sometimes write-protected. Of course, the recording leading to the error is not saved on the USB...
Deleting the temp file makes recording/playing files from the USB work again.
My USB works fine, as I stated previously, I was able to save multiple 4+min recordings before, and even now, though I'm wary of starting new ones...
While the tempfile is still there, I've also noticed that the piano believes you're still in recording (even though the record menu is inactive, no red dot/timer) and you can't access the player, as it tells you ' A recording is in progress, etc.' trying to start a new recording lasts a couple seconds before the error from above puts an end to it.
I believe there was another post on this thread at some point, when another user encountered a similar issue with an error popping up during recording and lost his file.
In any case, this is really not acceptable. As frustrating as it is to navigate the menus to do another take, it ultimately works, so fine.
But finally getting a good take of a piece, only to find out the file was not saved is a really poor surprise. Please fix this.
I'll add these issues to the list/letter...https://semestriel.framapad.org/p/kawai-ca79ca99-ui-amp-system-issues-9mga
By the way @Kawai James, do we still not have any information on a potential release date of the update ?
