I have a Roland GR-55 guitar synth. cosm Mod# ***** ser. # ***** I was hospitalized
for a while and left it sitting up for about six months. When I tried to bring it back on line
my guitar plays through it but it does nothing as for as sound conversion or changes. There
is no USB thumb drive installed. It was unpowered. What can I do to fix it?

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. The memory in it, of your previous setup and configuration of the Roland synth, may be completely gone owing to its sitting for 6 months. I recommend trying the complete setup again, checking out all settings.The setup and configuration in memory may not be all gone, just some of it, so don't be surprised if some of it is still present.(If this answers proves to be somewhat irrelevant to your concern about it, let me know. And if this answer is all right and on-target to the problem and its solution, please let me know about that too. Thanks.)

Rusty , My questions are elementary but I've looked far
My questions are elementary but I've looked far and wide for answers without finding them. I've been given a Studiologic SL-880 by a friend. I've been trying and failing to get my computer to recognises MIDI messages sent by it. I've a Yamaha PSR-e535 keyboard, with sounds on board but MIDI enabled and trying to get sounds from this out of the computer persuades me that the problem lies with what I've got, or more likely not got on the latter. I've checked the USB cable from the Yamaha to the computer is okay. I've no reason to doubt the MIDI cables to M-Audio interface to USB from the Studiologic to be duff. … read more
