Ran into my first problem with the Roland FR1X. The USB drives worked fine for a few weeks. Now they will only recognize the first song on the directory. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I am now the proud owner of a Roland Fr1X thanks to Shelia Lee. The feature so far that I like best is the USB drive feature. We are making MIDI piano arrangements in four parts to play for practice backup. The first is both right and left hand parts, the second is left hand part only, the third is right hand part only, and the last both hands again. Our other musicians such as violin player can use it as they play in a jam session.

Thanks for the advice. I have seen Richard Noel on Y-Tube and do like his arrangements. I'll contact him regarding his sets.

Thanks again.

I have a FR-3X as well - and the instrument did not come to life until installing the 4 User Sets as programed by Richard Noel.  If you are planning to attend the Dallas Accordion gathering in March, Richard will be there along with his programing of all the other X model V accordions - plus you can hear for yourself the huge difference his program changes make.  Or you can order the Sets direct online from Richard now.

Hello, I've recently purchased a Roland FR3x and trying to learn how to program it. Can anyone tell me how I get the same sounds as those I hear on the samples? Like I said I'm just learning but I cannot seem to duplicate any of the "sets" that I hear.
