Roland MV-30 Music Production System Studio M Owner Manual is designed with painstaking structured and divided into 6 chapters. The sixth chapter describes the basic setup and operation of the MV-30, basic concepts of the MV-30, and steps by steps through some of the basic operational procedures.
In addition, guidelines for owner Roland MV-30 also provides an explanation of the function reference, Appendix, and Glossary that explains terms used in connection with the MV-30 and sequencing (listed in alphabetical order).
Roland MV-30 Music Production System Studio M features eight tracks are provided for the internal sound source, and another eight tracks are provided for controlling external sound sources. If you use only the internal sound source tracks to create music, no knowledge of MIDI is necessary. Simply select a track and a timbre (sound), and play a connected MIDI keyboard to record your music.
The MV-30 adds TVF (Time Variant Filters) to Roland’s RS-PCM sound generating technology which is renowned for its realistic and high-quality sounds. The two PCM card slots can accommodate special ROM sound cards designed for the MV-30 (SN-MV30 series). Sound cards from the U series (SN-U110 series) and sound element cards for the D-70 (SN-SPLA series) can also be used.
The explanation given in the owner’s manual / owner’s guide is also accompanied by illustrations to make it easier for users and musicians in maximizing the use of the MV-30. One important thing the most sought after by musicians to improve their performance in creating music is a MIDI Implementation Chart.
If this unit is muted or no sound, then first, you can check whether the output jacks (MIX Out, Direct Out) is connected correctly or not. In addition, you can also check the output assign of the internal source tracks:
Are the volumes lowered on your amp, mixer, or external MIDI equipment?
Is the master volume of the MV-30 lowered?
Are the eight faders lowered?
Is the MIX Mode set to COMPU even though no volume changes have been recorded in the Mixer track?
Are the track outputs muffed?
Are the Timbre levels lowered?
Is the levels of each key in the Rhythm Timbre lowered?
Is the source key of each key in the Rhythm Timbre turned off?
Are you playing outside of the pitch range than a Tone can produce?
Do the MIDI channels of the MV-30 match the MIDI channels of the external MIDI devices? In the various pages of Play, Chain Load, Disk, Compu Mix, System, Track Edit, and Pattern Edit, there will be no sound if the channels of the internal sound sources do not match the channels of the external MIDI devices.
