Roland Cameras - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

If it is a drum machine, why have you posted this query under Cameras ? You may get more help posting it under musical (and I use the term loosely) instruments.

As this appears to be a musical instrument not a camera, further information may be forthcoming if you post this query in a forum dealing with such items.

Save up and employ a real drummer. We're quite cheap to run, needing just Newkie Brown and copious kebabs to perform for hours every night.

This should definitely do it. I think the style you want is one of the kicks which are k01 through k09 I think.

You need to setup your own style etc as follows:

Select a Number for the Style You Are Creating
Make the Settings for the New Style
Record the Patterns
(Realtime Recording/Step Recording)
Check the Created Style
- Set the Tempo
- Set the Beat
- Set Up the Drum Kit
- Make the TSC Settings
- Determine the Number of Measures for Each Pattern
(These settings can be changed after the patterns are
- Record the Drum Part
- Record the Bass Part
- Change Dynamics to the Sounds (Velocity Edit)
- Transpose the Bass Part
- Edit the Settings

- Name the Style

Pinch Roller errors mean that the location of one or more of the pinch rollers is not correct. To fix the problem, simply try raising the pinch roller levers and move the pinch rollers to their proper positions above the grit rollers.
Reposition the material to match position with new adjustment. If you still get the error, then is the left grip roller that is not centered over the girt roller.
Also Ensure that you are setting the base point immediately to the right of the crop mark (it should have a rectangle on it).
If you are still getting this error you will need to ensure that the roller sensor magnets are still connected. Right behind the roller is a small rectangular magnet. After years of use this
magnet missing the magnet is missing the unit will need to go in for repair.
In that case call the Roland support number found on the user manual.

The Steps

1. Go to: and download the manual in PDF format.

2. Open the file in Adobe 9.0.0.

3. Choose File --> Save as Text...

4. You now have a fully editable copy of the User Manual.


1. Go to: and download the "free" PDF to Word converter program.

2. Install the program (be sure to scan download for viruses before installation).

3. Run the program and follow the prompts to covert your file. This program will attempt to keep all images and formatting intact when converting, unlike the above mentioned process.

Good luck!
