IMPORTANT NOTES
291b
In addition to the items listed under “IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS” and “USING THE UNIT SAFELY” on pages 2,
3, 4 and 5, please read and observe the following:
Power Supply
301
• Do not connect this unit to same electrical outlet that is
being used by an electrical appliance that is controlled by
an inverter (such as a refrigerator, washing machine,
microwave oven, or air conditioner), or that contains a
motor. Depending on the way in which the electrical
appliance is used, power supply noise may cause this unit
to malfunction or may produce audible noise. If it is not
practical to use a separate electrical outlet, connect a
power supply noise filter between this unit and the
electrical outlet.
306b
• Batteries are supplied with the unit. The life of these
batteries may be limited, however, since their primary
purpose was to enable testing.
307
• Before connecting this unit to other devices, turn off the
power to all units. This will help prevent malfunctions
and/or damage to speakers or other devices.
308
• Although the LCD and LEDs are switched off when the
POWER switch is switched off, this does not mean that the
unit has been completely disconnected from the source of
power. If you need to turn off the power completely, first
turn off the POWER switch, then unplug the power cord
from the power outlet. For this reason, the outlet into
which you choose to connect the power cord’s plug
should be one that is within easy reach and readily accessible.
Placement
351
• Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other equipment
containing large power transformers) may induce hum.
To alleviate the problem, change the orientation of this
unit; or move it farther away from the source of interference.
352a
• This device may interfere with radio and television
reception. Do not use this device in the vicinity of such
receivers.
352b
• Noise may be produced if wireless communications
devices, such as cell phones, are operated in the vicinity of
this unit. Such noise could occur when receiving or initiating a call, or while conversing. Should you experience
such problems, you should relocate such wireless devices
so they are at a greater distance from this unit, or switch
them off.
354b
• Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight, place it near
devices that radiate heat, leave it inside an enclosed
vehicle, or otherwise subject it to temperature extremes.
Also, do not allow lighting devices that normally are used
while their light source is very close to the unit (such as a
piano light), or powerful spotlights to shine upon the
same area of the unit for extended periods of time.
Excessive heat can deform or discolor the unit.
6
355b
• When moved from one location to another where the
temperature and/or humidity is very different, water
droplets (condensation) may form inside the unit. Damage
or malfunction may result if you attempt to use the unit in
this condition. Therefore, before using the unit, you must
allow it to stand for several hours, until the condensation
has completely evaporated.
356
• Do not allow rubber, vinyl, or similar materials to remain
on the unit for long periods of time. Such objects can
discolor or otherwise harmfully affect the finish.
358
• Do not allow objects to remain on top of the keyboard.
This can be the cause of malfunction, such as keys ceasing
to produce sound.
359
• Do not paste stickers, decals, or the like to this instrument.
Peeling such matter off the instrument may damage the
exterior finish.
Maintenance
401b (revise)
• Since your piano has a polished finish that is as delicate as
that found on finely crafted wooden furniture, it needs
careful, periodic care. A few important suggestions
concerning the proper care of the unit follow.
• For dusting, using a soft, clean cloth and/or piano-use
feather duster. Be sure to wipe gently. Even the tiniest
grains of sand or grit can leave scratches on the surface
if too much force is applied while wiping.
Do not use any cleaners or detergents, since they might
deteriorate the surface of the cabinet, and produce
cracks.
• If the cabinet’s surface loses its luster, wipe it
thoroughly with a soft cloth dampened with a little of
the polishing liquid.
Do not use any cleaners or detergents, since they might
deteriorate the surface of the cabinet, and produce
cracks. Do not use dusting cloths that contain
chemicals.
402
• Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any
kind, to avoid the possibility of discoloration and/or
deformation.
403
• The pedals of this unit are made of brass.\nBrass
eventually darkens as the result of the natural oxidization
process. If the brass becomes tarnished, polish it using
commercially available metal polisher.
Repairs and Data
452
• Please be aware that all data contained in the unit’s
memory may be lost when the unit is sent for repairs.
Important data should always be backed up on a USB
memory, or written down on paper (when possible).
During repairs, due care is taken to avoid the loss of data.
However, in certain cases (such as when circuitry related
to memory itself is out of order), we regret that it may not
be possible to restore the data, and Roland assumes no
liability concerning such loss of data.
RG-7_e.book 7 ページ 2005年2月14日 月曜日 午前9時45分
IMPORTANT NOTES
Automatic Keyboard
Add
• While the automatic keyboard is in operation, avoid doing
anything that could hamper the action of the keys, such as
using undue force to press a key, or forcing up a
depressed key. By doing so, you risk causing malfunction.
Additional Precautions
551
• Please be aware that the contents of memory can be
irretrievably lost as a result of a malfunction, or the
improper operation of the unit. To protect yourself against
the risk of loosing important data, we recommend that
you periodically save a backup copy of important data
you have stored in the unit’s memory on a USB memory.
552
• Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the contents
of data that was stored on a USB memory and internal
memory once it has been lost. Roland Corporation
assumes no liability concerning such loss of data.
553
• Use a reasonable amount of care when using the unit’s
buttons, sliders, or other controls; and when using its jacks
and connectors. Rough handling can lead to malfunctions.
554
• Never strike or apply strong pressure to the display.
565
• Before opening or closing the keyboard lid, always make
sure that no pets or other small animals are located on top
of the instrument (in particular, they should be kept away
from the keyboard and its lid). Otherwise, due to the
structural design of this instrument, small pets or other
animals could end up getting trapped inside it. If such a
situation is encountered, you must immediately switch off
the power and disconnect the power cord from the outlet.
You should then consult with the retailer from whom the
instrument was purchased, or contact the nearest Roland
Service Center.
Before Using USB Memory
Using USB Memory
704 (revised)
• When connecting USB memory, make sure to press it until
it is fully inserted.
705 (revised)
• Never touch the terminals of the USB memory. Also,

Introduction
Thank you, and congratulations on your choice of the Roland RG-7 Digital Grand Piano.
The RG-7 is sure to be highly appreciated, not only for the authentic piano performances it offers, but also for
its extensive selection of player piano functions.
In order to enjoy reliable performance of your new keyboard for many years to come, please take the time to
read through this manual in its entirety.
Main Features
Piano Sounds with Rich Resonance and Wide-Ranging Expressiveness
The stereo sampling piano sound generator realistically reproduces even the sound of the hammers striking
the strings, producing the tones of a high-quality concert grand piano.
Maximum polyphony of 128 notes ensures that you can use the pedal freely without running out of notes.
Roland Digital Grand Brings Refinement to Interior Style
The RG-7 exhibits elegance in form with a beautiful black, mirror-like surface. With features just like those
found on an acoustic grand, such as a lid that opens and closes and retractable music rest, this instrument is
a perfect match for lounge or living room.
The simple, modern, and stylish panel design makes switching tones and making settings a snap.
Full Complement of Player Piano Functions
The RG-7 comes programmed with song data in jazz and classical styles. You can also use the CD drive to play
back a wide variety of music on the CD included with the instrument as well as songs on CD-ROMs
containing saved SMF files, player piano CDs, and audio CDs. Moreover, you can add song data by copying
songs saved on USB memory and CD-ROMs to the RG-7’s “Favorites.”
The RG-7 includes a “Moving Key” function, which plays the keys along with the song, providing exquisite
performances that are played automatically.
Also included is a convenient remote control you can use for selecting songs, adjusting volume, switching the
Moving Key function on and off simply and easily. You can connect an external display or television set to the
RG-7 for enlarged displays of the Song Select screen, karaoke screen (lyrics screen), notation, and even slide
shows.
Instrument Endowed with Superior Basic Functions
The RG-7 uses the progressive hammer action keyboard, which reproduces the touch of a grand piano, with
a heavier feel in the lower registers and a lighter, quicker response in the upper registers. This keyboard also
accurately reproduces the distinctive clicking feel that occurs when the keys are played gently (escapement
mechanism).
The instrument further is equipped with highly responsive pedals, which lend even greater expressive detail
to your performances.
The RG-7 also is programmed with 20 carefully selected performance tones, including two types of grand
piano tones, which you can select according to your own taste. What’s more, the settings for the “key touch,”
“hammer response,” and other precision tone adjustment settings that performers demand can be stored in
the RG-7 itself.
On top of this, a newly designed sound system puts the focus on the sound of the piano to achieve a luscious,
natural piano sound.

Introduction
Professional-Level Features and Specifications
The instrument features a lid lock to prevent unauthorized operation of the controls or keys while the Moving
Key function is in use, and an Ext Memory port lock to prevent theft of connected USB memory.
Since the RG-7 is a digital instrument, it has no strings and therefore requires no tuning.
You can connect an external display or television to the piano to run slide shows using whatever images you
prefer and, with a microphone connected, you can add echo and harmonies to microphone vocals and use the
Transformer function to change the sound of the vocals.
Connect External Speakers to Produce Concert Hall Presence
You can connect an amp and speakers to the RG-7 and play the sounds of the reverb and accompaniment
through the external speakers to produce the effect of being enveloped by an orchestra.

Soft Pedal
Damper Pedal
Sostenuto Pedal
The mark at the top of the [Volume] knob indicates the
volume level typically produced by an acoustic piano.
This is usually the most appropriate volume for your
piano performances.
You can adjust the volume with the remote control. For
details, refer to “About the Remote Control” (p. 34).
Damper pedal (right pedal)
While this pedal is pressed, notes will be sustained even after
you take your fingers off the keys.
On an acoustic piano, holding down the damper pedal will
allow the remaining strings to resonate in sympathy with the
sounds that you played from the keyboard, adding a rich
resonance.
The RG-7 simulates this Damper Resonance.
You can change the amount of resonance applied with
the damper pedal. Please refer to “Producing the
Resonance of the Strings When the Keys Are Played
(Damper Resonance)” (p. 59).
Sostenuto pedal (center pedal)
This pedal sustains only the sounds of the keys that were
already played when you pressed the pedal.
Soft pedal (left pedal)
When you hold down this pedal and play the keyboard, the
sound will have a softer tone.
The softness of the tone can be varied subtly by the depth to
which you press the pedal.
You can assign functions to the left and center pedals.
Refer to “Assigning Functions to Pedals” (p. 69).

Connecting Headphones
Connecting a Microphone
The RG-7 has two jacks for plugging in headphones. This
allows two people to listen through headphones
simultaneously, making it very useful for lessons and
performing piano pieces for four hands. Additionally, this
allows you to play without bothering others around you,
even at night.
You can connect a microphone into the Mic jack, and enjoy
karaoke with the RG-7.

Some Notes on Using a Microphone
The headphone volume is adjusted by the [Volume]
knob of the RG-7.
NOTE
Use Stereo headphones.
Some Notes on Using Headphones
• To prevent damage to the cord, handle the headphones
only by the headset or the plug.
• Connecting the headphones when the volume of
connected equipment is turned up may result in damage
to the headphones. Lower the volume on the RG-7
before plugging in the headphones.
• Listening at excessively high volume levels will not only
damage the headphones, but may also cause hearing
loss. Use the headphones at a moderate volume level.
• Be careful of high volume levels when using microphone
late at night or early in the morning.
• When connecting a microphone to the RG-7, be sure to
lower the volume. If the volume control is too high when
the microphone is plugged in, noise may be produced by
the speakers.
• Howling could be produced depending on the location
of microphones relative to speakers. This can be
remedied by:
- Changing the orientation of the microphone.
- Relocating microphone at a greater distance from
speakers.
- Lowering volume levels.

Not only can you play CDs, you can also play back SMF music files saved on USB
memory. In addition, you can connect USB memory and copy song data recorded
with the RG-7 to the USB memory.
Store Songs in the “Favorites”

to the tone demos to check out the special characteristics of each tone.
Additionally, you can save songs recorded with the RG-7 to the “Favorites” and you
can copy songs stored in USB memory to the “Favorites” as well. Songs held in the
“Favorites” are not lost when the power is turned off, making this a convenient place
to store those songs you listen to often.
Easy-to-Use Remote Control Included
You can use the included remote control to start and stop the current performance
and switch songs. You can also use the remote control to select what is to be
displayed on an external screen or television set connected to the RG-7 and assign
other functions to the remote control’s buttons to make operating the RG-7 even
simpler.
Connect a Microphone for Karaoke Performances
Connect a microphone to the RG-7, and you are ready to enjoy karaoke. You can
change the key of the song to match the singer’s voice and adjust the amount of echo
applied to the microphone input. In addition, the RG-7 includes functions for adding
harmonies and effects (Transformer) to vocals.
Show Your Favorite Images on a Connected Display or Television
You can connect an external display or television set to the RG-7 and display the
Song Select screen, lyrics and notations, and even slide shows of your favorite
images. You can also use the remote control to switch the images appearing in the
connected external display or television.
The “Moving Key” Feature
You can have the RG-7’s keyboard play automatically along with the internal songs,
songs recorded with the RG-7, songs on CDs, and songs stored in USB memory. You

Chapter 1. Playing Back Songs
Listening to Songs
The RG-7 features a variety of internal songs. The internal songs are categorized into
“Jazz” and “Classical” genres.
You can also use the RG-7’s CD drive to play back the included CD, CD-ROMs with
songs saved in SMF format, commercially available audio CDs, and player piano
CDs. Moreover, you can connect USB memory to the Ext Memory port and play back
SMF music file that’s been saved on the memory device.
■ [Song] Button Functions
Each press of the [Song] button selects the next available song genre, in this order:
“Jazz” → “Classical” → “Favorites” → “CD” → “Ext Memory” (songs in the USB
memory device connected to the Ext Memory port)
fig.
The “CD” and “USB” genres appear only when a CD is in the CD drive or when USB
memory is connected to the Ext Memory port. “Favorites” is indicated only when
there are songs in the Favorites genre.
What are the “Favorites?”
This is the area of memory where you can save copies of performances recorded with
the RG-7, songs saved on CD-ROMs, songs stored in the USB memory connected to
the RG-7’s Ext Memory port, and other songs.
After copying songs to the “Favorites,” you can then select the copied songs simply
by pressing the [Song] button and selecting “Favorites” as the song genre.
The RG-7 features a User Memory (the RG-7’s memory) area where the following
types of data are stored.
• Content registered in the “Favorites”
• Content set in User programs (Favorites performance settings) (p. 78)
To delete the content of the User Memory and restore the memory to the default
factory settings, refer to “Initializing the User Memory or USB Memory” (p. 92).
You can select and listen to tone demos (p. 26) from the “Favorites” after initializing
the User memory.
You can also delete these tone demos and overwrite them with other songs, which
can then be saved.

■ Listening to Songs on CDs
Cautions
Handling CDs
• Do not leave discs exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods.
• Handle CDs with your finger and thumb, holding the disc by the center hole and
outer rim. Do not touch or scratch the disc’s recording surface (the green side).
• Do not drop or stack discs.
• Do not place heavy objects on discs or subject them to strong impact.
• Do not affix stickers or other such materials on the label side. Placing stickers on
the disc may result in errors when data writing and scratch the disc.
• Use a felt-tip marker or other soft-tipped implement to write titles and other
information on the label side of discs.
• Store discs in their original cases or other suitable cases for protection.
• Before using the CD, please read the warning on the CD cover.
Cleaning Discs
• If a disc becomes dusty or soiled, gently wipe the disc with a soft cloth. Always
wipe outwards from the center using light, gentle strokes. Do not wipe the disk
in a circular pattern.
Precautions Concerning Use of the CD
• CD-R/RW discs to which audio tracks have been added, and CDs with mixed
audio tracks and data will not play back properly.
• The RG-7 is capable of playing back only commercial CDs that conform the
official standards-those that carry the “COMPACT DISC DIGITAL AUDIO”
logo. The usability and sound quality of audio discs that incorporate copyright
protection technology and other non-standard CDs cannot be guaranteed.
• For more detailed information on audio discs featuring copyright protection
technology and other non-standard CDs, please consult the disc vendor.
• You cannot save songs and styles to CDs, and you cannot delete songs or styles
recorded to CDs. Furthermore, you cannot format CDs.
• The prescribed format for CD-R/RW discs is “ISO9660 Level 1 Mode 1.”
• You may be unable to read using other formats.
CDs That Can Be Played Back
• Commercially available audio CDs
• CD-ROMs containing saved SMF music files
• CD included with the RG-7
• Player piano CDs

heavier. Dynamic fingering adds even more feeling to what you play.
A value of around 65 provides a standard setting, producing the most natural touch.
This is the closest to the touch of an acoustic piano.

RG-7’s memory using the
On an acoustic piano, pressing a key moves a hammer, which strikes a string to
produce sound. If you press the key softly, the hammer will move slowly, meaning
that it will take slightly longer (in comparison to a strongly-played note) from the
moment you press the key until the sound is produced.
If the Hammer Response function is turned on, the time between the moment you
press a key until the sound is heard will change depending on the strength with
which you play. As you play more softly, this time will become longer.

Qualities
Equal
In this tuning, each octave is divided into twelve equal
steps. Every interval produces about the same amount of
slight dissonance.
Just(Maj)
This tuning eliminates ambiguities in the fifths and thirds.
It is unsuited to playing melodies and cannot be
transposed, but is capable of beautiful sonorities.
Just(min)
The Just tunings differ from major and minor keys. You
can get the same effect with the minor scale as with the
major scale.
Kirnberger
This is an improvement of the Mean Tone and Just tunings
that provides a high degree of freedom of modulation.
Performances are possible in all keys (III).
Pythagorean
This tuning, devised by the philosopher Pythagoras,
eliminates dissonance in fourths and fifths. Dissonance is
produced by third-interval chords, but melodies are
euphonious.
Mean Tone
This scale makes some compromises in just intonation,
enabling transposition to other keys.

Connecting MIDI Devices
MIDI, short for “Musical Instrument Digital Interface,” was
developed as a universal standard for the exchange of
performance data between electronic instruments and
computers.
The RG-7 is equipped with MIDI connectors to let it
exchange performance data with external devices. These
connectors can be used to connect the RG-7 to an external
device for even greater versatility.
* A separate publication titled “MIDI Implementation” is also
available. It provides complete details concerning the way
MIDI has been implemented on this unit. If you should require

■ Sending Tone Change Messages
(Program Change/Bank Select
MSB/Bank Select LSB)
A Program Change is a message that means “change to the
Tone of the specified number.” The device that receives this
changes to the Tone of the corresponding number.
When you choose a Program Change message (Program
Number), the Program Number will be transmitted to the
MIDI device connected to the RG-7. The MIDI device that
receives the Program Number changes the tone to the
corresponding Program Number.
Normally, the Tone is selected from the 128 Tones available.
Some MIDI devices, however, have more than 128 Tones.
With such devices, the Tone is selected through a
combination of Program Change messages and Bank Select

of the instrument
connected to Input
jacks is too low
Could you be using a connection cable
that contains a resistor?
Use a connection cable that does not
contain a resistor.
Low hum coming
from external
device
Do you have different external devices
plugged into different power outlets?
When connecting external devices,
always draw power from the same
outlet.
Unable to load
properly with USB
memory
Is the USB memory you are using one
that was produced by Roland?
Performance is not guaranteed when
other types of USB memory are used.
Volume of
microphone

Has a plug remained connected to the
Phones jack?
When headphones or plugs are
connected, the keyboard’s speaker
stops playing.
No sound is heard
Could the levels of all frequency ranges
be turned down completely in the
equalizer settings? (p. 60)
Is V-LINK switched on?
While V-LINK is switched on, no sound
is produced when you press any of the
twelve keys at the left end of the
keyboard (p. 92).
Have all devices been switched on?
No sound is heard

When Local Control is set to Off, no
sound is produced by playing the
keyboard. Set Local Control to On (p.
101).
Is the external display’s power turned
on?
Not all played
notes are sounded
Are you using a display that is
compatible with the RG-7?
Refer to “Displays That Can Be
Connected to This Instrument” (p. 47).
The maximum number of notes can
play simultaneously is 128.
Frequent use of the damper pedal
during playing along with a song may
result in performance data with too
many notes, causing some notes to drop
out.
The sound is strange
Is the external display or television
properly connected? (p. 47, p. 49)
Is the television format or display
setting correct? (p. 47, p. 49)
Thin horizontal
lines visible in the
television screen
While narrow horizontal lines may be
visible in the television screen, this is a
particular characteristic of the
television set and does not indicate any
problem with the RG-7.
Poor-quality of
images displayed
in television
Even when all recommended settings
are used, images may still not be
displayed well with the television set
you are using (images may not match
the screen size, and may be clustered
towards the center of the screen).

RG-7_e.book 105 ページ 2005年2月14日 月曜日 午前9時45分
Case
Cause/Remedy
Reverberation still
audible even with
Reverb turned off
Since the RG-7’s piano sounds
accurately reproduce the depth and
reverberation of the original acoustic
piano, you may find that reverberation
is audible when the Key Off function is
enabled.
If you want to eliminate the
reverberation, turn off the Key Off
function (p. 57).
In the upper range,
the sound changes
abruptly beyond a
certain key
On an acoustic piano, notes in the
upper one and a half octaves of the
keyboard continue to sound until they
decay naturally, regardless of the
damper pedal. There is a difference in
the timbre as well. Roland pianos
faithfully simulate such characteristics
of the acoustic piano. On the RG-7, the
range that is unaffected by the damper
pedal will change depending on the
Key Transpose setting.
A High-pitched
whine is produced
When listening through headphones:
Some of the more flamboyant and
effervescent piano tones feature an
ample high-end component, which
may make the sound appear to have
metallic reverberation added. Since this
reverberation becomes particularly
audible when supplemented by heavy
reverb, you may be able to diminish the
problem by reducing the amount of
reverb applied to the sound.
When listening through speakers:
Here, a different cause (such as
resonance produced by the RG-7)
would be suspect. Consult your Roland
dealer or nearest Roland Service
Center.
The bass range
sounds odd, or
there is a vibrating
resonance
When listening through speakers:
Playing at loud volumes may cause
instruments near the RG-7 to resonate.
Resonation can also occur with
fluorescent light tubes, glass doors, and
other objects. In particular, this
problem occurs more easily when the
bass component is increased, and when
the sound is played at higher volumes.
Use the following measures to suppress
such resonance.
o Place speakers so they are 10-15 cm
from walls and other surfaces.
o Reduce the volume.
o Move the speakers away from any
resonating objects.
Case
Cause/Remedy
Song doesn’t play back correctly
Song doesn’t play
back
Does the screen indicate message, like
“Delete User Song OK?” (p. 75).
The internal songs cannot be played
back while recorded performance data
remains in the RG-7’s memory. Erase
the performance data or play back the
song after saving to the “Favorites” or
to your USB memory.
Pressing the
[

the beginning of
the song
Some music files may contain settings
that stop play at a point partway
through the song. Press the [
]
button several times more to return to
the beginning of the tune.
The [
] and
[
] buttons
don’t work
The fast-forward and reverse buttons
are ignored while music files is being
read in. Wait until processing finishes.
Accompaniment
not playing
Is the accompaniment volume turned
down in the volume balance settings?
(p. 71)
Can’t record
The recorded
performance has
disappeared
Any performance that has been
recorded is deleted when the power to
the RG-7 is turned off or a song is
selected. A performance cannot be
restored once it’s been deleted. Be sure
to save it on a USB memory or User
Memory before you turn off the power
(p. 92).
Unable to play
back songs
Could you have pressed the remote
control’s [MUTE] button and muted the
sound?
Press the [MUTE] button to cancel the
mute (p. 35).
Could the [Moving Key] indicator be
extinguished?
Press the [Moving Key] button so its
indicator is lit.
Moving Key not
working
If using the Moving Key function,
which part’s performance is the
Moving Key function assigned to play
(p. 88)?
Does the part to be played with the
Moving Key function contain
performance data?
If a part containing no performance
data is selected, the keys will not move
when the song is played back. When
running Moving Keys for a
performance recorded with the RG-7,
select Part 1.
When listening through headphones:
Here, a different cause (such as
resonance produced by the RG-7)
would be suspect. Consult your Roland
dealer or nearest Roland Service
Center.

Music Files That the RG-7 Can Use
What Are Music Files?
Music files contains musical information such as how long
the key for a corresponding pitch is played, the force applied
to the key played, and other such information. Performance
data is transmitted to the RG-7 from music files saved in USB
memory and played back without change as songs. This is
different than a audio CD, since the music file does not
contain a recording of the sound itself. This makes it possible
to erase certain parts, or to change instruments, tempos and
keys freely, allowing you to use it in many different ways.
Regarding Copyright
Use of the song data supplied with the Data Disk attached to
this product for any purpose other than private, personal
enjoyment without the permission of the copyright holder is
prohibited by law. Additionally, this data must not be
copied, nor used in a secondary copyrighted work without
the permission of the copyright holder.
■ The RG-7 allows you to use the
following music files
SMF with Lyrics
“SMF with Lyrics” refers to SMF (Standard MIDI File) that
contains the lyrics. When Music Files carrying the “SMF with
Lyrics” logo are played back on a compatible device (one
bearing the same logo), the lyrics will appear in its display.
The RG-7 come equipped with GM 2/GS sound generators.
■ About the RG-7 Sound
Generator
General MIDI 2
The upwardly compatible General MIDI 2 recommendations
pick up where the original General MIDI left off, offering
enhanced expressive capabilities, and even greater
compatibility. Issues that were not covered by the original
General MIDI recommendations, such as how sounds are to
be edited, and how effects should be handled, have now
been precisely defined. Moreover, the available sounds have
been expanded. General MIDI 2 compliant sound generators
are capable of reliably playing back music files that carry
either the General MIDI or General MIDI 2 logo.
In some cases, the conventional form of General MIDI, which
does not include the new enhancements, is referred to as
“General MIDI 1” as a way of distinguishing it from General
MIDI 2.
GS Format
The GS Format is Roland’s set of specifications for
standardizing the performance of sound generating devices.
In addition to including support for everything defined by
the General MIDI, the highly compatible GS Format
additionally offers an expanded number of sounds, provides
for the editing of sounds, and spells out many details for a
wide range of extra features, including effects such as reverb
and chorus. Designed with the future in mind, the GS Format
can readily include new sounds and support new hardware
features when they arrive. Since it is upwardly compatible
with the General MIDI, Roland’s GS Format is capable of
reliably playing back GM Scores equally as well as it
performs GS music files (music files that have been created
with the GS Format in mind). This product supports both the
General MIDI 2 and the GS Format, and can be used to play
back music data carrying either of these logos.
The RG-8 come equipped with GM 2/GS sound generators.
XG lite
General MIDI
The General MIDI is a set of recommendations which seeks
to provide a way to go beyond the limitations of proprietary
designs, and standardize the MIDI capabilities of sound
generating devices. Sound generating devices and music files
that meets the General MIDI standard bears the General
MIDI logo. Music files bearing the General MIDI logo can be
played back using any General MIDI sound generating unit
to produce essentially the same musical performance.
110
XG is a tone generator format of YAMAHA Corporation, that
defines the ways in which voices are expanded or edited and
the structure and type of effects, in addition to the General
MIDI 1 specification. XGlite is a simplified version of XG
tone generation format. You can play back any XG music
files using an XGlite tone generator. However, keep in mind
that some music files may play back differently compared to
the original files, due to the reduced set of control parameters
and effects.
