Re: How do you tie a note to a reed block

JIM D. wrote:...the offending reed may only need to be blown out (dirt) in the reed block, or removed, cleaned, and then re-waxed in.

That kind of begs the question... what is the proper way to clean a reed short of blowing it out?

Re: FR-4X!!!

Forgive my asking, I'm an electrical dummy. Doesn't Roland say use Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries and those battery packs are Nickel Cadmium (NiCad) ? I thought I saw a YouTube video from Liberty Bellows about setting up the 4x that said use only NiMH batteries. Does it really make any diffe...

Re: FR-4X!!!

Sounds like I will try them. I have been using the Energizer power plus. 2300mah. For my wireless mic and MIDI jet, no problems. Sounds like the 2700 mah will give more playing time on 4x. Would it be better to find a 10 bay charge so you can charge the accordion batteries in one set? I know they a...

Re: FR-4X!!!

No External charge no problem fr4x. I just ordered another battery holder from Roland. $25. Maybe get the same on Amazon for 1/2 the price? But why risk if it doesn't fit. Have the second pack ready to go with 10 fresh batteries. I like the eveready rechargeables. Want to see and improvement in pla...

Re: BK7m songbook app for Ipad?

That does look very i teresting to me. Also there are free ipad apps from Roland that look like some more added fun... The BK Partner, that lets you control the BK from the ipad and is a lyrics viewer, and the BK editor, lets you modify the setup in pretty much all the ways a person would need.

Re: BK7m songbook app for Ipad?

Not likely. Isn't the BK-7m discontinued now?

I think my next big purchase might be a big tablet and a PDF reader with BT capability to select the next or last songs and turn pages. The days of the printed page on a music stand are going to be a thing of the past for me one day. :)

Re: Why so long to get a Roland?

Shoot... you are PAYING for something you don't have??? Seriously, I would have demanded my money back and told them to call you when they had it in stock! Someone is making money off you for something promised and never delivered. Friends don't do that to friends. :|

Re: Anyone playing an Elka or Concerto?

Rhelsing, it does sound amazing, I am looking forward to hearing it in action! :) I also agree that more advertising could be done, however that would probably mean less time for the other things that he does. (like teaching me!) Jerry you also have to realize that Roland has more staff and money to...

Re: Why so long to get a Roland?

Peopke like Dale Mathis and Richard Noel have had their 4X now for several months, long enough to put out a lot of videos, and that means a fair amount of experimentation and playing time. There are also several people in the Yahoo Roland forums that have theirs already too. Where did you order your...

Re: BK7m songbook app for Ipad?

Not in the same manner. Yes, one can save song lists but these are more for saving and bringing up settings within the BK, not to view lyrics and chords. When you save a song in the list it saves the intro variation, starting variation, selected rhythm, tempo, and instruments. All the musician does ...
