I have a Yamaha CVP-205 digital piano (circa 2001 or so.) The problem revolves around a recorded performance. It is not finished and I am adding & editing voices as I go. The song is 141 bars and on bar 39 (between beats 1 & 2) there is a pause of a half second or so on the performance as well as the metronome. All of the voices match the pause. I isolated each voice and I quantized 3 times (with no effect.) I have the manual and this problem is not in the trouble shooting section or in the index under beat, metronome, record or editing. NOTE: I have dozens of saved songs on the keyboard's memory and on floppy discs that do not reflect this most recent problem. Yes....I said I have floppy discs. :) Thank you, Tim

Hello, I probably have someone else by now (I waiting so long to get back) but one thing that may be pertinent is that while recording the rhythm tracks, I use say...track 1 for the kick drum and track 2 for the snare, track three for frills, etc. I don't see why this would matter but I do this for more control after while editing.
Electronic Musical Instrument Expert: Michael Hannigan, Engineer replied 2 years ago

I would copy the song to a new one, then remove one track at a time to see if it is associated with the track.

Have you tried creating it as a new song and moving the track over?

Sorry... I'm not sure what you mean by "I probably have someone else by now".

Mike

Hello. What I meant by "I probably have someone else by now" referred to the time it took for me to respond (8 hours or something) Nothing to do with your response. I can't try what you suggested right now, but I will try to move it or copy it as a new song sometime this evening. Thank you, Tim
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Again, sorry for the late response. I just copied from my disc to "User" and I still have the pause. It is not on any one track but in the piece as a whole (even the metronome.) You should also know that I copied the Kick and Snare before anything else and it was only after some editing of the other added tracks that this problem came up.
Electronic Musical Instrument Expert: Michael Hannigan, Engineer replied 2 years ago

I'm not sure why it would do this to only one song in light of the testing you have done. I am going to open the question to other Experts to see if they have any ideas.

8:54am on March 2nd was the last response. Around 60 hours ago. Please get back tonight (3-4-16)
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
1:43 am on March 5th. No one is there? Please tell me how to get my money back.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
2:50pm on March 5th with no response since March 2nd at 8:54am. I assume you have credited my credit card and will be checking it just as soon as I am finished here.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I just looked at my credit card account and I see the $5 and $10 charged on March 1st. Since you have simply given up on the problem I am having with no response at all (and encroaching on 72 hours now), consider me an unhappy customer who wants a credit of $15 put back on his card. If you need more information or I have missed something, don't hesitate to get back to me to get this process going. Seriously yours, Tim
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
After 10pm now March 5th. I thought perhaps your responses may have been directed to my spam folder. I just checked it and that was not the case. I see you are available 24/7 so your lack of response is not that you are off on the weekend. It also says that ***** *****nigan has referred this to another expert and that I'd get a response (not perhaps) here within 24 hours. Seeing now that it has been 72+ hours since your last response....in any manner. It is obvious that you are willfully ignoring my case. I also checked my credit card account again and there has been no effort on your part to refund my payment of $15. I am dissatisfied with the lack of results and more for your lack of response. I want a full refund. Sincerely, Tim
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
After 12pm. March 6th. 82+ since a promised response was to be issued. I will check my credit card statement to see if you have issued me a credit for $15. Unlike like you, I will get back to report your compliance or failure to my demand. Sincerely, Tim
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
12:20. I just checked my credit card account and you have not credited it $15. Are you running the clock out so as to not honor your 30 Day money back guarantee? I did notice in my spam email you wanted me to answer 5 questions. I did not do so for fear that this would end our transaction. I also emailed your customer care department to inform them of your lack of response....82+ hours. Sincerely, Tim
