Main features
■ Simple and reliable loop play
The new “loop quantize” function automatically adjusts the timing of the loop end.
This makes it easy for anyone to create looped phrases of an accurate length.
■ Up to 16 minutes of extended phrase recording
You can save up to eleven different loop phrases for a total of 16 minutes of recording.
■ Overdubbing undo/redo capability
If you make a mistake in overdubbing, you can cancel the action and restore the data to
its condition before the overdub (undo). And if after undoing the overdub you decide
that you want to use it after all, you can cancel the undo and restore the data to the
state it was in right after the overdub (redo).
■ Control the phrase tempo in real time
The tempo of a phrase can be controlled in real time without affecting its pitch. A
phrase recorded into internal memory can be made to match the tempo of a live
performance, opening up new possibilities during a gig.
This feature is also useful when you wish to slow down the tempo of a guitar phrase to
learn and practice it.
■ Dedicated mic input for vocalists
Since the INST jack and MIC jack can be used simultaneously, you can create new
sound-on-sound performances that combine guitar, vocals, and percussion.
■ Selectable playback method to match your purpose
You can switch each loop phrase individually to one-shot playback.
You can also choose the mode used to stop playback to suit your needs, for example by
fading out or stopping playback immediately upon reaching the end.
■ Easily record audio signals from a CD or MD
It’s easy to record audio signals from a CD or MD connected to the AUX IN jack.
Since the vocal or guitar solo can be erased from the audio signal while it is being
recorded, it’s also easy to create minus-one data.
■ Pedal design for hands-free operation
You can use the pedals to start/stop the performance, switch phrases, and set the
tempo without taking your hands off of your guitar.

fig.03-01
• Batteries are supplied with the unit. The life of these batteries may be limited,
however, since their primary purpose was to enable testing.
• When turning the unit upside-down, get a bunch of newspapers or magazines,
and place them under the four corners or at both ends to prevent damage to the
buttons and controls. Also, you should try to orient the unit so no buttons or
controls get damaged.
• When turning the unit upside-down, handle with care to avoid dropping it, or
allowing it to fall or tip over.
• Be sure to observe the correct + (positive) and – (negative) orientation of the batteries.
• When the batteries run down, the POWER indicator will become dim. When this
occurs, please replace them with new batteries as soon as possible.
If the power is turned off while you are recording or overdubbing, all of the
saved data may be lost (p. 11).
• When replacing the batteries, use six R6/LR6 (AA) batteries.
• Do not mix new batteries with previously used batteries or batteries of a different
type. Doing so may cause battery leakage.
• The running time may be shorter depending on the type of batteries you use.
Expected battery life under continuous use:
Carbon:
6 hours
Alkaline:
16 hours
These figures will vary depending on the actual conditions of use.
8
Making connections
fig.04-01
* To prevent malfunction and/or damage to speakers or other devices, always turn down
the volume, and turn off the power on all devices before making any connections.
* Use a cable from Roland to make the connection. If using some other make of connection
cable, please note the following precautions.
• Some connection cables contain resistors. Do not use cables that incorporate resistors
for connecting to this unit. The use of such cables can cause the sound level to be
extremely low, or impossible to hear. For information on cable specifications, contact the
manufacturer of the cable.
* The use of an AC adaptor is recommended as the unit’s power consumption is relatively
high. Should you prefer to use batteries, please use the alkaline type.
* If you are using batteries, the power will be turned on when a connector plug for your
amp or speaker is inserted into the OUTPUT jack.
* For details on installing the batteries, refer to “Installing batteries” (p. 8).
* For details on pedal switches that can be connected to the PHRASE SHIFT jack and
REVERSE jack, refer to p. 24, 26.
* Do not connect headphones to the OUTPUT jack. Doing so may damage the headphones.

RC-20XL_e.book 10 ページ 2004年4月28日 水曜日 午後4時12分
Making connections
* Howling could be produced depending on the location of microphones relative to amp.
This can be remedied by:
1. Changing the orientation of the microphone(s).
2. Relocating microphone(s) at a greater distance from speakers.
3. Lowering volume levels.
* If the amp and microphone are close together, the sound played back from the amp may be
picked up by the microphone. If you record or overdub in such a state, the amp playback
picked up by the microphone will also be recorded. You should separate the amp and
microphone so that the playback from the amp is not picked up by the microphone.
Turning the power on/off
Once the connections have been completed, turn on power to your various devices
in the order specified. By turning on devices in the wrong order, you risk causing
malfunction and/or damage to speakers and other devices.
When turning the power on: Turn on the power of the amp or mixer last.
When turning the power off: Turn off the power of the amp or mixer first.
* Always make sure to have the volume level turned down before switching on power. Even
with the volume all the way down, you may still hear some sound when the power is
switched on, but this is normal, and does not indicate a malfunction.
* If you are using batteries, the indicator will become darker when the batteries run down.
Please replace the batteries as soon as possible.
When turning on the power while a recorded track is being selected
(the LOOP PHRASE or ONE SHOT PHRASE indicator is lit), the indicators on the
front panel flash in a sequential order, and the LOOP PHRASE or ONE SHOT
PHRASE indicator flashes rapidly for a few seconds.

Making connections
Important <Caution when turning off the power>
Before you turn off the power, make sure that the following conditions are met.
All saved data may be lost if the power is turned off inappropriately.
• You must not be playing/recording/overdubbing a phrase
(The REC, PLAY, and OVERDUB indicators must not be lit)
• The WRITE indicator or EXIT indicator must not be lit
• The LOOP PHRASE or ONE SHOT PHRASE indicator is not flashing rapidly
If you are using batteries, the power will be turned off automatically when the
connector plug to your amp or speaker is unplugged from the OUTPUT jack.
Before unplugging this connector, make sure you check for the above states.
To avoid problems, select an empty phrase track whenever possible, and turn off/
on the power.
11
Recording a guitar or vocal performance to create a
loop phrase
On the RC-20XL, the process of recording an additional performance while a
recorded performance plays back is called overdubbing.
The performance from an instrument or microphone connected to the INST jack or
MIC jack can be recorded to create a loop phrase. This lets you enjoy new types of
sound-on-sound playing that combine guitar, percussion, or drum pad performances.

*
If an effect such as reverb has been applied to the sounds localized at the center, it may not be
possible to erase the sound completely.
• NORMAL
The performance from the CD or MD will be recorded as is.
• CENTER CANCEL
Sounds localized at the center (such as vocals or guitar solo) will be erased from the
sound being recorded.
The Flat Amp Simulator effect
Guitar amps are designed with a frequency response that is optimized for guitar
playing. For this reason, when a phrase recorded from CD or MD is played back
through a guitar amp, the low-frequency and high-frequency ranges will be
emphasized in comparison to the mid-range. The Flat Amp Simulator compensates the
frequency response during recording, so that the recorded (i.e., non-guitar)
performance will sound correct when played through your guitar amp.
3. While playing back the CD/MD, use the volume control of the CD/MD player
to adjust the recording level.
Adjust the volume so that the PEAK indicator lights occasionally.
4.
If you set the tempo before recording, press the TAP TEMPO button or the right
pedal several times in time with the tempo of the phrase you wish to record.

finished. If this occurs, erase unnecessary phrases (p. 31), and try the operation again.
7. Press the left pedal to stop recording.
Simultaneously, the recorded phrase will begin playing. The tempo of the phrase will
also be set automatically.
*
The automatic tempo setting is calculated with a time signature of 4/4. If you are recording
a phrase whose time signature is different, you must specify the time signature before
recording (p. 34).
*
The minimum length of time required for a loop phrase is approximately 1.5 seconds. If the
phrase you’ve recorded is shorter than that, the length of the phrase will be adjusted
automatically, and then recording will stop (p. 37).

Using the RC-20XL for practicing—Phrase Trainer
When recording a song from CD or MD, you can erase vocals or guitar solos that locate
at the center of the sound field. This function makes it easy to create “minus-one” data

You can also adjust the tempo while the phrase plays back. Changing the tempo of the
song will not affect the pitch. This is convenient when you wish to slow down the
tempo for practicing.

If an effect such as reverb has been applied to the sounds localized at the center, it may not be
possible to erase the sound completely.
If you set the tempo before recording, press the TAP TEMPO button or the right
pedal several times in time with the tempo of the phrase you wish to record.
4. If you want recording to begin at the moment the performance starts, turn
the AUTO START button on (indicator lit).
5. Press the left pedal to start recording.
*
If the internal memory is used up, recording or overdubbing may stop before you are
finished. If this occurs, erase unnecessary phrases (p. 31), and try the operation again.
6. Press the right pedal to stop recording.
When recording ends, the tempo of the phrase will be assigned automatically.

Playing back in various ways
Playing a phrase only once (One-shot Playback)
Phrases saved to Phrase Tracks 1–11 are initially set to loop playback (with the LOOP
PHRASE indicator lit), but you can switch the phrase settings to one-shot
playback by holding down the SHIFT (EXIT) button and pressing the LOOP/ONE
SHOT (AUTO START) button.
This feature is handy when, for example, you want to have one-shot playback of saved
phrases used for playing live twin guitar solos or effects sounds.
*
When you want to have One-Shot Playback remain in effect constantly, switch to One-Shot
Playback, then save the phrase (“Saving a phrase” (p. 29)).
Loop Playback
The phrase is played repeatedly from beginning to end until the right pedal is pressed.
One-Shot playback
The phrase plays one time from beginning to end and then stops automatically.
*
22
Overdubbing is disabled when one-shot playback is in effect. When the left pedal is pressed
during playback of the phrase, the phrase starts playing from the beginning again (retrigger
playback).
If you want to overdub, first switch to loop playback.

Selecting the Method of Stopping Playback
(Stop Mode)
Phrases stops playing immediately when the right pedal is pressed during playback of
the phrase, but you can set the phrase to stop playing after fading out or after the end
of the phrase is reached.
You can use this function for natural-sounding fadeouts and to simplify stopping
playback right at the end of the phrase.
*
You cannot switch the stop mode during One-Shot playback. Pressing the right pedal
immediately stops playback.
*
When you save a phrase after switching the stop mode, the stop mode is also saved at the
same time (“Saving a phrase” (p. 29)).
1. Hold down the SHIFT (EXIT) button and press the STOP MODE (MODE)
button (continue to hold down the SHIFT button).
The flashing of the AUX IN indicators shows which stop mode is currently selected.
• NORMAL indicator flashing: Pressing the right pedal stops playback immediately.
• CENTER CANCEL indicator flashing: Playback stops after fadeout.
* If the right pedal is pressed during overdubbing, overdub ends at that point.
* The PLAY indicator flashes until playback stops.
* You can still stop playback immediately by pressing the right pedal once again while the
phrase is fading out.
* You cannot overdub while the phrase is fading out.
• FLAT AMP SIMULATE indicator flashing: Playback stops after the phrase is played to the end.
* If the right pedal is pressed during overdubbing, overdub ends at that point.
* The PLAY indicator flashes until playback stops.
* You can still stop playback immediately by pressing the right pedal once again until
playback stops.
* You cannot overdub until playback stops.
2. While continuing to hold down the SHIFT (EXIT) button, press the STOP
MODE (MODE) button to switch the stop mode.
3. Release the SHIFT (EXIT) button.

Using the pedal to switch phrases (Phrase Shift)
While a phrase is playing, you can press a pedal switch connected to the PHRASE
SHIFT jack to switch to the phrase track of the following number.
It is convenient to store the phrases in consecutive phrase tracks according to the order
in which you intend to perform them.
If you prepare Intro, looped phrase, and Ending, you can use the Phrase Shift to
play them back as a song.
1. Connect a pedal switch such as the FS-5U (sold separately) to the PHRASE
SHIFT jack (p. 9).
2.
*
Pedal switches made by another manufacturer may operate in the opposite way. Such pedal
switches cannot be used.
*
If you are using the FS-5U, move the polarity
switch toward the jack.
*
The FS-5L cannot be used.
Turn the PHRASE SELECT knob to select the phrase that you wish to play first.
*
If the phrase has not been saved, it will be deleted when you switch to a different phrase. For
more on saving phrases, refer to “Saving a phrase” (p. 29).
3. Press the left pedal to begin playing the phrase.
4. When you want to switch phrases, press the pedal switch.
The PLAY indicator flashes the same count as the number for the phrase to be played
next, then flashes rapidly, and repeats this pattern.
The unit switches to the phrase with the next number (or, if that is empty, the phrase
after that) at the timing used in returning to the start of the loop.
When the phrase is switched, the PLAY indicator flashes the same count as the number
for the phrase currently being played, then remains lit, and repeats this pattern.
*
When the number of the next phrase to be played back matches the phrase number indicated
by the PHRASE SELECT knob, the PLAY indicator flashes rapidly, then remains lit when
the phrases are switched.
• You can advance to any phrase while the current phrase is playing by
pressing the pedal switch the corresponding number of times.
*
24
Empty phrase tracks are disregarded. For example, when you press the pedal switch one time
while the Number 1 phrase is playing, if Number 2 is empty, the unit will switch to Number 3.
Playing back in various ways
• When you switch to a phrase set to One-Shot Playback, the phrase is played
to the end, and then playback stops.
• If you use Phrase Shift during One-Shot Playback, the phrase is played to the
end, then the unit switches to the next phrase.
The unit may not switch to the next phrase if you carry out Phrase Shift while the
end of the phrase is approaching. Use Phrase Shift while there is still ample time
to carry it out.
After carrying out the switch operation, you cannot change the tempo or switch to
Reverse Playback until the phrases are switched.
5. Press the right pedal to stop playback.
When you start playback again, the phrase selected with the PHRASE SELECT knob
will play.
You can also use Phrase Shift with the PHRASE SELECT knob.
If, while a phrase is playing back, you turn the PHRASE SELECT knob to select
the phrase track that will be played next, the next phrase will begin at the moment
that the currently playing phrase returns to the loop start.
When connecting two FS-5U
You can connect two FS-5U pedals using the special connection cable (the optional
Roland PCS-31).
• Pressing the FS-5U to which the plug with the white stripe has been
connected switches phrase tracks as follows: 1→2→3...11→1... (switches to
the next higher track number).
• Pressing the FS-5U to which the plug with the red stripe has been connected
switches phrase tracks as follows: 11→10→9...1→11... (switches to the
previous lower track number).

Playing back in various ways
Play back a phrase backward (Reverse Playback)
Playing a recorded phrase from the end toward the beginning is called “reverse
playback.” The result is similar to playing a tape in reverse.
By pressing the REVERSE button, lighting its indicator, you can use reverse playback.
To return to normal playback, extinguish the indicator.
Since this can produce unexpected results, it may be useful as a gimmick during a live
performance.
*
If you save a phrase with the REVERSE button turned on, the state of the button will also
be memorized. If you will always want a certain phrase to play back in reverse, you should
save it with the REVERSE button turned on. (“Saving a phrase” (p. 29))
*
If you overdub onto a phrase that plays back in reverse, the sound you’ve overdubbed is
recorded as being for normal playback.
*
When you switch to reverse playback while playback is in progress, the phrase begins to play
in the opposite direction, starting from the point in the loop that maintains the loop's
duration. This allows you to switch to reverse playback at any point in the phrase you like
without changing the duration of the loop.
Example: When you switch to reverse playback one measure from the start of the phrase,
reverse playback then starts one measure from the end of the phrase.
*
You cannot switch to Reverse Playback under the following conditions.
• While phrases are being switched (while the PLAY indicator is flashing)
• While changing the tempo (while the LOOP PHRASE or ONE SHOT PHRASE
indicator is flashing)
You can also control reverse playback by using the pedal switch instead of
the REVERSE button.
Connect a pedal switch such as the FS-5U (sold separately) to the REVERSE jack
(p. 9).
* Pedal switches made by some other manufacturer may operate in the opposite way. Such
pedal switches cannot be used.
* If you are using the FS-5U, move the polarity switch toward the jack.
* The FS-5L cannot be used.

Saving or deleting a phrase
About memory
The memory of the RC-20XL is divided into two areas: phrase tracks 1–11 and
temporary memory.
fig.08-01
Memory
Record/
Overdubbing
Temporary memory
Play
Save
Phrase tracks
1 2 3
••••••••
9 10 11
A phrase that you record or overdub is first stored in temporary memory.
The phrase stored in temporary memory is temporary, and will be erased when the
following operations occur.
• When you turn off the power
• When you select a different phrase track
Before you perform any of these operations, make sure to save the phrase in a phrase
track if you wish to keep it (p. 29).
If the overdubbing produces a phrase that you like, save it to the phrase track before
using the next procedure. Once the data is saved to the phrase tracks, it can be called
up anytime afterwards.
If you wish to erase (clear) only the phrase in temporary memory, press and hold
the right pedal for two seconds or longer.
What is a phrase track?
A phrase track is an area of internal memory in which phrases are stored. Phrases that
are saved here will not be lost when the power is turned off. Also, phrases that are
saved here can be selected at any time by using the PHRASE SELECT knob.
The phrases that can be saved in phrase tracks 1–11 can have a maximum total length
of 16 minutes.
You can only change the playback tempo (p. 33) of phrases saved to the phrase
tracks. To change the playback tempo of a phrase stored in temporary memory
immediately following overdubbing or recording, save it to a phrase track.
28
Saving or deleting a phrase
Saving a phrase
When you have finished recording/overdubbing, or after you have edited the tempo
or other settings of a phrase, you can save it.
All phrases that have not been saved are lost when you turn off the power or select a
different phrase track.
fig.08-02
1. Press the WRITE button, getting the indicator to start flashing.
The RC-20XL will be ready to save.
*
To copy the data, select the copy-source phrase track, and press the WRITE button.
2. Use the PHRASE SELECT knob to select the unused or empty track.
*
It is not possible to save to a phrase track that already contains a phrase (the LOOP
PHRASE or ONE SHOT PHRASE indicator will be lit).
*
The LOOP PHRASE and ONE SHOT PHRASE indicators flash when there is not enough
memory to save the phrase.
3. Press the WRITE button once again to save the phrase.
To cancel this operation, press EXIT button.
While the data is being saved, the indicator will light. When saving is complete, the
indicator goes out.
*
Depending on the length of the phrase, it may take some time for the save to be completed.
*
If you decide not to save, press the EXIT button. However, if you have turned the PHRASE
SELECT knob to select another phrase track, the recorded phrase will be lost when you press
the EXIT button, and you will switch to the selected phrase.

Saving or deleting a phrase
<CAUTION>
• Never turn off the RC-20XL’s power while the WRITE indicator or the EXIT
indicator is lit. Doing so will cause all data saved in the phrase tracks to be lost.
• 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 an MD, or
other device.
• 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.
• Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the contents of data that was stored
in the unit’s memory once it has been lost. Roland Corporation assumes no liability
concerning such loss of data.

Saving or deleting a phrase
Erasing a saved phrase (Delete)
fig.08-03
1. Turn the PHRASE SELECT knob to select the phrase track that you wish to
delete.
2. Simultaneously press the SHIFT (EXIT) button and the DELETE (WRITE)
button to get both indicators to flash.
The RC-20XL will be ready to delete the data.
3. Press the DELETE (WRITE) button to delete the data.
To cancel this operation, press the EXIT button.
The indicator will be lit while the data is being deleted, and will go out when the
deletion is complete.
Never turn off the RC-20XL’s power while the WRITE indicator or the EXIT
indicator is lit. Doing so will cause all data saved in the phrase tracks to be lost.
*
It is not possible to delete all phrase tracks in one operation.
Write Protect mode
You can temporarily prevent phrases from being saved or erased.
This condition is called “Write Protect mode.”
To select Write Protect mode, hold down the WRITE button as you turn on the
power. Confirm that all four indicators to the right of the MODE button are lit,
then release the button.
This setting will be cleared when you turn off the power, so the next time power is
turned on, you will once again be able to save or erase phrases.

RC-20XL_e.book 32 ページ 2004年4月28日 水曜日 午後4時12分
About the tempo and time signature
The RC-20XL allows you to set the tempo and time signature separately for each
phrase. These settings also determine how the guide tone will play, and how loop
quantization will occur. This means that if the tempo and time signature are correctly
set before recording, it will be easy to create a correct loop phrase.
*
The default time signature is 4/4. If you are recording a phrase with a 4/4 time signature, it
is not necessary to set the time signature.
What is Loop Quantize?
The timing at which you stop recording the phrase is very important in order to create
an accurately looped phrase. When using devices other than the RC-20XL, it was
necessary to become skilled at operating the pedal, through much practice.
The RC-20XL, however, has Loop Quantize function that automatically corrects the
length of the phrase by referring to the information in the Tempo settings so that an
accurately looped phrase can be created even if recording is stopped at a slightly
inaccurate timing.
fig.09-01

Loop Phrase
Loop Quantize is valid only when you have set the tempo before recording (the LOOP
QUANTIZE indicator will be lit). If you have not set the tempo before recording, or during
overdubbing, the Loop Quantize function is not active (LOOP QUANTIZE indicator
extinguished).
About automatic tempo settings
When a phrase is recorded without a specific tempo setting, the tempo is then set
automatically after the recording is finished.
*
32
The automatic tempo setting calculates the tempo premised on recording with a time
signature (beat) of 4/4 and four beats per measure.
If you are recording phrases with other beats, set the beat using the procedure on p. 34
before recording.

About the tempo and time signature
Setting the tempo
If you are recording a performance from an instrument or microphone connected to
the INST or MIC jacks, set the tempo before recording.
You can change the tempo for playing back the stored phrase.
*
If you change the playback tempo, then store the phrase, the modified tempo will be stored.
If you do not save it, the tempo change will be lost.

1. Turn the PHRASE SELECT knob to select the phrase track you wish to use.
If you are recording a new phrase, select the track you wish to record.
2. Press the TAP TEMPO button several times at the desired tempo.
The tempo will be set according to the intervals at which you press the button.
*
The tempo can also be set by pressing the right pedal instead of the TAP TEMPO button.
However, the right pedal cannot be used while a phrase is playing.
*
You cannot set the tempo for phrases that are looped over an interval shorter than the
minimum recording time (approximately 1.5 seconds).
*
If you wish to record a new phrase at the same tempo and time signature as the previouslyselected phrase, press the TAP TEMPO button / right pedal once.
*
By starting recording without setting the tempo, you can create a loop phrase without using
the Loop Quantize function.
You can only change the playback tempo of phrases saved to the phrase tracks. To
change the playback tempo of a phrase stored in temporary memory immediately
following overdubbing or recording, save it to a phrase track (p. 29).

About the tempo and time signature
Setting the time signature
If you are recording a phrase with a time signature of other than 4/4, set the correct
time signature before recording.
*
It is not possible to change the time signature after recording.
*
It is not possible to set a time signature whose denominator is anything other than 4.

1. Turn the PHRASE SELECT knob to select the phrase track you wish to
record.
2. Press and hold the TAP TEMPO button for two seconds or longer.
The indicator will flash, then go out, and you will be able to set the time signature.
3. Press the TAP TEMPO button as many times as the time signature you wish
to set.
When you have finished setting the time signature, the indicator will flash, and you
will automatically return to the state in which you can make tempo settings.
If you hold down the TAP TEMPO button to set the beat immediately after setting
the tempo, the action of the button being pressed is interpreted as setting the
tempo, and you may end up inadvertently changing the tempo as a result. Be sure
to leave a brief interval between setting the tempo and setting the beat.
34
About the guide tone
A guide tone will sound while you are playing or recording a phrase.
fig.10-01
The volume of the guide tone can be adjusted with the GUIDE knob.
If you do not wish to hear the guide tone, turn the GUIDE knob to the OFF position.
If you wish to change the sound of the guide tone, hold down the SHIFT (EXIT) button
and press the GUIDE SELECT (TAP TEMPO) button several times.
Each time you press the GUIDE SELECT (TAP TEMPO) button, the guide tone will
change (eight types).
*
When you save a phrase (p. 29), the currently selected guide tone will also be remembered.
The guide tone will not be heard when you record a phrase for which no tempo
has been set. However, the tempo will be calculated automatically when you have
finished recording, and the guide tone will play during playback.

Troubleshooting
Power does not turn on
• Is an amp or speaker connected to the
OUTPUT jack?
➔ If you are using batteries, the power will
not turn on unless an amp or speaker is
connected to the OUTPUT jack. Check
the connections (p. 9).
• Have the batteries run down?
➔ Install new batteries (p. 8).
• Is the correct AC adaptor (sold
separately) connected?
➔ Check the connections once again (p. 9).
No sound/not loud enough
• Have the connections to other devices
been made correctly?
➔ Check the connections once again (p. 9).
• Has the volume been turned down on the
connected guitar amp or other device?
➔ Check the settings of the connected device.
• Could you be using a connection cable
that contains a resistor?
➔ Use a connection cable that does not
contain a resistor.
Recorded/overdubbed sound
cannot be heard or is too quiet
➔ Use the LEVEL knob to adjust the volume.
Guide tone cannot be heard/is
not loud enough
➔ Use the GUIDE knob to adjust the
volume.
➔ The guide tone will sound when:
• you’ve set the tempo before recording
to an empty phrase
• you play back a phrase
Recording/overdubbing ends
prematurely
➔ You have run out of memory. Delete
unneeded phrases (p. 31), and perform
the recording/overdubbing once again.
36
Recording does not end immediately
when you press the pedal
➔Since the phrase length is adjusted
automatically when you record with
Loop Quantize or record a phrase that is
shorter than the minimum recording
time (approximately 1.5 seconds),
recording may not stop immediately
after you press the pedal.
Recording begins immediately even
though the Auto Start function is on
➔ If there is a significant amount of noise
(for example due to distortion), that
noise may be enough to trigger the
beginning of recording. Reduce the
noise (for example by lowering the
distortion level).
The LOOP PHRASE or ONE SHOT
PHRASE indicator flashes even though
there should be time remaining for
recording
➔ In the situations listed below, temporary
memory for overdubbing (p. 28) is
allocated separately from the phrase.
Since any calculation of available
recording time must take such
temporary memory into account, the
LOOP PHRASE or ONE SHOOT
PHRASE indicator may flash.
• When a phrase is selected
• When the playback tempo is changed
• When a phrase is saved
RC-20XL_e.book 37 ページ 2004年4月28日 水曜日 午後4時12分
Troubleshooting
Recorded a short phrase, but the length
of the phrase has changed
➔ The minimum length of time required
for a loop phrase is approximately 1.5
seconds. If the phrase you’ve recorded is
shorter than that, the length is
automatically multiplied by a factor of
two, four, eight, or more until it reaches
an acceptable length.
Unable to switch to Reverse
Playback
➔You cannot switch to Reverse Playback
under the following conditions.
• While phrases are being switched
(while the PLAY indicator is flashing)
• While changing the tempo (while the
LOOP PHRASE or ONE SHOT
PHRASE indicator is flashing)
Unable to change the playback
tempo
➔You cannot change the playback tempo
under the following conditions.
• If the phrase has not been saved
• If you are using overdubbing
• While phrases are being switched
(while the PLAY indicator is flashing)
• While you are setting the tempo for
phrases that are looped over an
interval shorter than the minimum
recording time (approximately 1.5
seconds).
Automatically set tempo is odd
➔When a phrase shorter than the
minimum recording time
(approximately 1.5 seconds) is recorded
with more than five beats set, the guide
sound may play half the beats.
If this occurs, record the phrase over
again with the recording lasting twice as
long.
