Mic in BK7M #148
Hello
Have any of you had problems using a mic or others via audio in on Roland BK7M arranger-module?
I get at chorus-like sound - headphones typically

Once in a while performing on Yamaha p-155 piano, Roland BK7M, Helicon Voice live 2 on Bose L1's - just using BK7M for accompagnement. Recently I had no success combining all elements into a Yamaha Genos - Roland still rules :-)

For a decent "Twist & Shout" style, please look p.e. at (listen also to the demo):

Roland E-80 V2.03 + SRX-06 + SR-G01, FC-7, PK-5, SC-8820 and EMU Xboard61.

Mic in BK7M #150
Thank you , that's the one:) Then I would choose E-96 as the closest model - similar to my very late G800, which I obviously should have kept. I wonder if this style would work on Bk7m?

It will work in the BK-7M, however you might want to edit it to get the best performance.

Works fine :lol: I just chose organ for strings and made minor volume adjustments - I just needed a single snare drum beat and on top of this I now get the ending and even the brakes right

I thought so. Good to hear you managed to get it the way you want it to be!
I am used to edit styles from older Roland arrangers :)
It works well (within the specs of the original Arranger OS).

Roland E-80 V2.03 + SRX-06 + SR-G01, FC-7, PK-5, SC-8820 and EMU Xboard61.

I believe there is a bit of latency on audio ins with the BK series. You will also notice that the audio ins transpose (using the BK's rather sub-par pitch transposition algorithm) when you transpose the keyboard, making it pretty much useless unless you never transpose!

The chorusing is probably from you hearing your 'head voice' and then the slight latency of the A/D converters. Is there any chorusing if you record the output?

Thank you for answering - this could be the issue. I guess the recording has no chorusing - just headphones and line out, but then I will not be able to use it 'live'
I also had an idea that a recording (with song) could help me checking the overall sound from my setup, but I will still be happy knowing that bk7m settings are OK - though not replacing a good mixer :-)
