Hi everyone,

Glad to be a new member of this forum; looking forward to providing help where possible, interacting with you guys, and just having a good time discussing things we all love.

I'm a new owner of a Roland LX705, and instantly fell in love with it. However, it took me a while to get it to sound properly through the speakers. It has always sounded terrific through headphones, but the speaker sound was a bit dull, shallow, and mellow (even with some of the suggested profiles on this forum). So after two weeks of trying to get things right, I finally found out that "Single note character" and speaker setting (natural vs. dynamic vs. dynamic 2) are of upmost importance for this.

I seem to like Single note character +2 for all notes, but I'd like to compare this to +1 and +3.

1. Is there a way to switch all note characters to a certain character value, instead of having to select each individual note and change it? Doing the latter (how I've been doing it so far) impedes a decent quick comparison between note character sets.

2. Also, I've currently set my speaker setting to dynamic. What makes it sound better, and why does it, to me, but hopefully also to you, sound more natural ... than "natural"?

3. What are your favourite note character and speaker settings?

Thanks by advance!

Regards,

Calatinus

Hellow, Calatinus, welcome to the forum.

Doesn't LX705 has some form of registration/scene/program/whatever the name where you can save and recall your settings at the touch of a button? Regardless of having some way to batch edit the notes (all +1 or +3), you may want to save your settings for either an A/B comparison or regular use.

If you download the custom lx700 setup files

https://rolandcorp.com.au/blog/what-is-roland-pure-acoustic-modelling-technology

The PSF file is basically a json text file. You could try changing the 0,0,0,0,0,0...under "character" to -1,-1,-1,-1..etc and import it. Using the piano designer app you can store a few such custom setups which you can easily switch around to A/B. You could probably export your current setup and edit in the same way. I haven't modified my setup in a while so I cannot recall the exact steps. However my experience using the same value for "character" for all notes is very uneven, but I guess it's subjective.

Thanks guys! I kind of forgot about the piano designer app, and it does what I need it to do smile

Regarding the unevenness of tone characters, I set them all to +2, but C#4 to +3, it didn't seem to fit in. Probably some more notes to follow ...
