Tracks disappearing R16

Post by Foxman » Tue Aug 27, 2019 6:50 pm

Hi all. Noobie here. Bought a brand new R16 - having so much fun as a keyboard player. Loaded some drums on track 1, strings on 2 and 3, bass (keyboard voice) on 4 and vocals on 5. Listened to it countless times during the day and all was good. Went to play it again in the evening and only vocals on track 5 can be heard. I’ve moved all faders, sliders, knobs and buttons, checked headphone and master volumes etc… I just can’t hear anything other than vocals on 5. The green track lights come on but that’s all. I took the SD card out and put it in the PC and the tracks are all there and can be heard. Back in the R16, and nothing. The only other thing I did was to press the EQ button and scroll down thru the options…I did not change any settings that I’m aware of and certainly did not push record again. Any suggestions? Thanks guys. (I have six other songs on the card, recorded with drums, keyboards and vocals and they all play back fine).

The first thing to check is if the files are still assigned to the tracks, and that they are the files you expected.

appreciate the feedback Wulfraed, thank you. Would you mind elaborating on how I might do that? Sorry, not the most technical person here :)

R16 manual, page 23

Also be aware that the default for the R16 is to OVERWRITE files if you arm for record -- to avoid overwriting you must manually set the track to "not assign" so it creates a new file in that track.

Sorry -- that's on the R24, one of the "improvements" made from the R16 firmware. The R16 is always in OVERWRITE mode, and requires one to manually set the track to "NOT ASSIGN" to force a new file... EVERY TIME!

Oops... Well I'm glad I did choose for an R24 then...

Why did you place "improvements" between quotes?

Partly because they still didn't add inter-/intra- track editing features, while adding 8 more tracks to make up for the requirements of the track sequencer when used as a form of drum machine.

Granted, the first firmware of the BOSS BR-800 also lacked such editing, but the first software update restored it (pity they didn't also figure out how to fit the rhythm pattern editor into the 800 also -- the 600 had both pattern and arrangement editing, along with a "pitch map" pitch correction feature; the 800 just has arrangement editing, you have to use a computer to create patterns for it; yet it has a dot matrix LCD which could be used to emulate the computer pattern editor -- drums listed down the left, cursor across to where the hit should be, dial in the intensity...)
