Hi all,

I have a Roland RD 700 NX of 2 years old, currently on firmware 2.02. Recently I noticed that while playing, it automatically switch to Bright Concert Grand, regardless of what my current piano model is. Is this something particular with 2.02? I want to know if anyone is experiencing the same thing before thinking of reverting back to older versions.

Thanks!

I have the same piano running the same update for a while now, this is not a problem I have experienced.

Have you programmed something? Consider factory reset first.

My CP5 allows me the option of having whatever 'voice' I want as the default voice when the instrument is turned on.

Perhaps you inadvertently changed the default start up voice.

This actually happened to me 3 weeks ago (I'm on 2.02 as well)!

I just got mine in November and had no problems except when I experienced this problem during (only) one session.

I didn't even realize what had happened at first--just that the sound suddently changed while I was playing. I power-cycled and still had the problem.

I do recall that I was hitting the keys particularly hard during this session. It manifested about three times and never while playing quietly.

I travel with it often, however, and after moving/unplugging/replugging/whatever, the problem has never resurfaced again.

My explanation at the time was that maybe the selection wheel wasn't sitting properly between 'grooves' and that it was being nudged enough to make the system think I'd nudged it to the right one click, thereby selecting the next instrument--which is Bright Piano from Concert Grand. I would have tested it again starting with Bright Piano and seeing if it moved to the 'right' again to the next instrument, but the problem never came up again.

Least--good or bad--I'm not the only one?

No problems on 2.02 here so far. I have only saved registrations to the 200 entry user space.

Quite insightful! If true this explains why playing harder triggered it and playing softer didn't.

I once had a JV-1010, and if you twirled the value knob too quickly the unit would lock up - I speculate they had the knob quadrature switches hooked up to an interrupt but didn't properly debounce / condition them, thus sending the processor into the weeds. Terrible bug, super easy to make it happen, I can't believe they didn't see that in testing.
