I recently purchased a Roland KR-7, and overall, I am happy, if not ecstatic, with it. I have some questions, though, about chord sequencing:

When I use the Arranger or Session Partner, I'd like to have the accompaniment cycle through a chord sequence of my own choosing. In Arranger, I can have it follow me (by pressing a key on the lower half of the keyboard, I can have it switch to that chord). That's great, except I have to remember to press a key when I want to switch chords!

In Session Partner, it will cycle through predefined chord sequences (and even show me what's coming up next!), and I can also put it into "manual" mode where it behaves like Arranger. But what if I want my own sequence?

For example, I'd like to give Arranger a standard twelve-bar blues sequence and have it just start playing accompaniment in that sequence (over and over until I stop it), as though I were hitting the appropriate keys for the chord changes, but without my having to do so. Then I could focus on what I'm playing instead of half-focusing on telling the piano what chords I want.

Is there any way to do this?

I tried faking this out by entering a twelve-bar blues sequence in the chord sequencer and then copying those bars a whole bunch of times, effectively creating a score whose sole component was the chord sequence. Then if I use the digiscore recorder/playback feature, I can sort of get what I want. But there are problems with that.

  • First, if I copy the 12 bars 20 times, I get 20 cycles through and then I'm done. I couldn't find any kind of auto-repeat or anything like that. Did I miss something? *IS* there an auto-repeat in digi-score playback?
  • Second, if I want to change the sequence, I have to start all over again - I couldn't find a way to edit the chord sequence! The editor provides editing of individual notes, but as far as I can tell, does not permit changing the underlying chords. Again, have I missed something?



It feels overall like I've missed something big. There's this chord sequencer, and there's this Arranger that can follow a sequence. But there doesn't seem to be any way to tell the Arranger to follow the sequencer's sequence!

Any help will be *very* appreciated!

I don't use the arrrnager feature much now on my roalnd KR-577, but have you tried using the Copy sequencer to Composer (or something like that). What you do is create a sequence in the 16 track Sequencer (not chord sequencer) then you copy it to composer/Chord etc, so everything you here is your own original composition.

I understand you can take midi files and copy thoese too. I'll have to get the manual out you know:)

My target is Arranger or Session Partner, not Composer. If I understand you correctly, you're describing what I already tried (except for the source of the chord sequence):

But I'll give your suggesting a try this evening, and see if it puts the sequence into Arranger or Session Partner as well.

I couldn't find a way to create a sequence in the 16-track sequencer, other than playing the chords myself. That runs counter to my goal of having the piano produce the accompaniment (as opposed to playing back my own).

I did discover that I can set up a sequence in the chord sequencer and then use the "Marker" function to have it repeat when I use Composer. That almost does what I want, but not quite - I'm still looking for a way to use the sequence in Arranger and/or Session Performer.
