20 Most Recent Roland Gr33 Guitar Synthesizer Questions & Answers


There is probably both a global volume and individual program violume as well. One or both may have reset to a lower level and need to be turned up. It's also possible that the general output has a setting for line level or instrument level, which may be software controlled. Take a look through your manual to find these settings and adjust to suit.If all else fails, contact Roland Customer Service at this link for help.

You must connect a short jack cable between the GK2 or GK3 and you normal guitar jack out. Secondly, the switch on the GK should be in the middle, that will give synth & dry guitar simultaneously.

You could hook the output of the GR33 to something like an AKAI MPC (http://www.akaipro.com/mpc) assigning different notes to trigger different samples or sequences.

Hi daveihde,

Can you please elaborate , what you meant by freaked out?

This is to confirm whether the device is actually playing the sawtooth waveform in a way that is abnormal or it's normal for this model to play sawtooth waveform sounds in that manner.

Please compare it with an identical device and then find out the difference , sometimes a good servicing , a cleaning of the circuit will help you out to solve the problem, in addition to system reset.

Hope this helps ..:)

If you want help from Roland you will have to register:http://www.rolandus.com/backstage/login.php That will get you access to full support and their email address. I think you are having problems with your GK-3 pickup. Make sure your string that you are having problems with is the optimal height etc. The adjustment for the GR-20 is in the manual at this link:http://www.roland.co.uk/assets/media/pdf/GR_20_Q_A.pdf Make sure your pickup is installed correctly and adjusted properly first. The manual is here:http://lib.roland.co.jp/support/en/manuals/res/1811530/GK-3_e11.pdf If you have everything adjusted and only one string is not working then I would guess you have a cable problem and the best thing is to contact Roland for advice. I didn't walk you through the adjustment because every installation for every guitar is different. Hope this helps.

Do you have an owner's manual......first thing to try would be a factory reset...sometimes this will un-scramble the operating system and set it back to when it left the factory....contact Roland for an owner's manual if you don't have one....hopefully this helps..if not, then you will have to open it up.....

The most likely problem would be wiring. By dropping it you loosened or disconnected a wire.

It's always possible the new battery had lost it's charge before it was installed. Check it with an ohm meter for it's voltage. Other than that, either the contacts in the battery holder may be in need of cleaning or the battery wasn't installed correctly.

there are spraycans of cleaner that u can buy to cure it. sounds like dirty pots like maybe your volume pot on your amp or the pots on the instruments your playing. get the cleaner ,spray in the pots and move them back and forth and thats it. my marshall amp was doing the same and that was my cure. i dont remember the name of it but phone long and mcquade or another store and ask. hope that helps ya.

It's usually fine to leave solid state electronic equipment turned on. A small amount of heat is produced when powered up and it will usually help to prevent condensation inside the case if that's a problem. It's not normally needed unless it's in a damp and/or cold environment. A dehumidifier is possibly a better solution if you have a lot of moisture.

Open up the Roland G-70 and check if all the connectors and flatcables are well seated. Check also if the power supply is working as supposed to.
