FEATURES
Easy Installation
All you need to do is to mount the SCB-55 onto a sound card compatible with Sound
Blaster, and you can enjoy high-quality sounds with music or game software.
16-part Multi-Timbral Sound Generator
The SCB-55 is a 16-part multi-timbral (including the drum part) sound generator. It can
play up to 28 notes simultaneously, making possible ensembles of up to 16 parts.
Reverb and Chorus Effects
The onboard reverb enhances expressiveness by adding an expansive feeling, while chorus can be used to add fullness to the sound for majestic ensembles. These digital effects
let you create music with virtually the same fidelity and acoustics as a concert hall.
Compatible with GM (General MIDI) System Level 1 and GS Format
General MIDI and GS-compatible sound generators can play identical MIDI data with
very similar voicings, despite differences in the actual sounds that each device can play.
IMPORTANT NOTES
[Placement]
• Do not subject the unit to temperature extremes (e.g. direct sunlight in an enclosed vehicle). Avoid using or storing the unit in dusty or humid areas, or areas that are subject to
high levels of vibration.
• Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other equipment containing large power transformers) may induce hum.
• This device may interfere with radio and television reception. Do not use this device in
the vicinity of such receivers.
[Additional Precautions]
• Protect the unit from strong impact.
• Do not allow objects or liquids of any kind to penetrate the unit. In the event of such an
occurrence, discontinue use immediately. Contact qualified service personnel as soon
as possible.
• Should a malfunction occur, or if you suspect there is a problem, discontinue use immediately. Contact qualified service personnel as soon as possible.
General MIDI System
The General MIDI System is a set of recommendations which seek to provide a way for
going beyond the limitations of proprietary designs, and standardize the MIDI capabilities provided by sound generating devices.
If you use a sound generating unit which carries the General MIDI logo, you will be able
to faithfully reproduce any song data which also carries the General MIDI logo.
GS Format
The GS Format is Roland’s universal set of specifications which were formulated in the
interest of standardizing the way in which sound generating devices will operate when
MIDI is used for the performance of music. If you use a sound generating unit which
carries the GS logo, you will be able to faithfully reproduce any commercially available
song data which also carries the GS logo.
This product supports both General MIDI and GS.
Song data which carries either of these logos can be accurately reproduced.

2. THE GENERAL MIDI SYSTEM AND GS
FORMAT
General MIDI System
The General MIDI System is a universal set of specifications for sound generating
devices. These specifications seek to allow for the creation of music data which is not
limited to equipment by a particular manufacturer or to specific models.
The General MIDI System defines things such as the minimum number of voices that
should be supported, the MIDI messages that should be recognized, which sounds correspond to which Program Change numbers, and the layout of rhythm sounds on the
keyboard. Thanks to these specifications, any device that is equipped with sound
sources supporting the General MIDI System will be able to accurately reproduce
General MIDI Scores (music data created for the General MIDI System), regardless of the
manufacturer or model.
GS Format
The GS Format is a standardized set of specifications for Roland’s sound generators
which defines the manner in which multi-timbral sound generating units will respond to
MIDI messages. The GS Format also complies with the General MIDI System.
The GS Format also defines a number of other details. These include unique specifications for sounds and the functions available for Tone editing and effects (chorus and
reverb), and other specifications concerning the manner in which sound sources will
respond to MIDI messages.
Any device that is equipped with GS Format sound sources can faithfully reproduce GS
Music Data (music data created under the GS Format).
This product supports both General MIDI and GS.
Song data which carries either of these logos can be accurately reproduced.

3. STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION OF THE
SCB-55
(1) Parts
The SCB-55 provides 16 Parts, and thus allows for a maximum of 16 different performance parts to be played at the same time. Part 10 is for playing percussive instrument.
A Part is something like an orchestral part; think of it as a group of musicians all playing
a particular instrument. The big difference compared with a regular orchestra is that you
are completely free to decide what kind of instrument they will be playing. In addition,
you can change that instrument midway through a song (as many times as you want) for
every different part. You could think of this group as being made up of incredible multiinstrumentalists who can play any instrument you give them.
There are many different kinds of performance data in MIDI, but probably the most basic
is the note message determining which key to play, how hard, for how long, and when
to start. Every part has its own MIDI channel over which it receives performance data
and, unless you reset it for some reason, the channel number is the same as the part
number.
Each part plays by following the instructions in the performance data on its own channel, and pays no attention to the data on other channels intended for other parts. So
thanks to this MIDI channel scheme, you can play each Part completely independently
of the others, like on a multitrack recorder.
* As to MIDI, refer to “ABOUT MIDI.” (p. 8)
(2) Voices and Polyphony
The SCB-55 contains 28 internal components (Voices), each of which is capable of generating sound. All 28 Voices can operate simultaneously. However, some sounds
require 2 Voices to produce one note. For this reason, the number of notes actually
available can be 28 or less. For example, if every sound you are using consists of 2
Voices, the maximum number of notes you could play at once would be 14.
To determine how many Voices the SCB-55 is using, add up the number of Voices used
by all the Parts. Note that it is possible to have all 28 Voices working to produce the
sound of only one Part.
For information on the number of Voices used by particular sounds, refer to the “TONE
TABLE” (p. 14).
5
SCB-55.QX4
01.6.19 8:59 AM
Page 6
(3) Maximum Polyphony
When the number of Voices being used exceeds 28, some of the notes that should be
played could be cut. To avoid ‘loosing’ important notes, there are two features you can
use to insure that a particular Part has all the notes it is supposed to. The settings for the
parameters which control these features are made using Exclusive messages (p. 26).
Part Priority
When the SCB-55 receives performance data which request it to produce more than the
28 Voices available, priority is given to producing the most recently received note messages. Those that have been sounding for a while will be cut, in order, starting with the
oldest ones, and the ones that are assigned to the Parts with the lowest priority.
Part Priority Ordering:
10 > 1 > 2 > 3 > 4 > 5 > 6 > 7 > 8 > 9 > 11 > 12 > 13 > 14 > 15 > 16
For this reason, consider a Part’s importance (bass, chords, melody etc.) carefully when
assigning it to a Part on the SCB-55.
Voice Reserve
The Voice Reserve function allows you to specify a minimum number of Voices that will
always be reserved and made available for certain Parts. This becomes effective in
instances when the total number of Voices that have been requested exceeds the capacity of the unit.
When shipped, the following settings were made for Voice Reserve:
Part 1:
Parts 2-10:
Parts 11-16:
6
2
0
As Voice Reserve for Part 1 is set to “6,” Part 1 will always have at least 6 Voices—even
when all Parts combined are requesting more than 28 Voices. In other words, with Part
1 set this way, all the notes that it should play will be played faithfully (as long as the
sounds assigned to it do not use more than 6 Voices).

The SCB-55 has 128 basic sounds (“Capital Tones”) that you can select using Program
Change messages. Each Capital Tone also has “Variations,” selectable using Bank Select
messages.
* There are some Variations that do not have a sound assigned to them. Check the TONE
TABLE (p. 14) to make sure there is in fact a Tone at the location you are selecting with a
Bank Select message (or else you will get no sound at all).
* The arrangement of the Capital Tones is the same as that for the 128 types of sounds in
the General MIDI System.
(5) Chorus and Reverb
Every Part in the SCB-55 can have chorus and reverb effects added to it, and the depth
of effects can be controlled in real time using Control Change messages.
(6) Changing Between Drum Sets
Part 10 is exclusively for percussion, using the Drum Set sounds. Drum Set sounds differ
from regular sounds in that a different instrument is assigned to each key. Say you have
a violin Tone selected: no matter what key you press, you get a violin sound. It may be
a different pitch but it’s still a violin sound. However, in a Drum Set, one key plays the
kick, one plays the snare, one the hi-hat, and so on. Percussion instruments don’t generally carry the melody and don’t need the pitch range of a violin, so we can arrange them
one-per-key and handle them all in one channel.
Drum Sets can be switched using Program Change messages.
Standard Set
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 . . . 128
Program Number
* Although Program Numbers range from 1 to 128, there are nowhere near that many different Drum Sets on the SCB-55. If you try to select a Drum Set that doesn’t exist, you’ll
get no sound when you try to play. Check the DRUM SET TABLE (p. 19) to make sure
that the Program Change message you are sending corresponds to an actual Drum Set.
* The percussion instruments for Note Numbers 35-81 in the Standard Set (Program
Number 1) all have the same key assignments as the 47 percussion instrument types in
the General MIDI System.

4. ABOUT MIDI
MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface. MIDI is a world-wide standard that
allows musical instruments and computers to exchange musical data. Most electronic
musical instruments sold today are MIDI compatible. MIDI compatible devices have
MIDI connectors which are used to physically link instruments (using special cables).
MIDI does not transmit the sound of an instrument, but rather ‘messages’ in digital form
that tell the receiving instrument to “do something.” These are known as MIDI messages.
(1) MIDI Message Exchange
How the exchange of MIDI messages is carried out is explained in the following.
MIDI Connectors
In carrying out the exchange of MIDI messages, three connectors are used. MIDI cables
are connected to these connectors in various ways depending on the desired result:
MIDI IN connector:
This connector receives incoming MIDI messages.
MIDI
THRU
OUT
IN
MIDI OUT connector:
This connector transmits outgoing MIDI messages
to other devices.
MIDI THRU connector:
MIDI messages received at MIDI IN are re-transmitted by the MIDI THRU connector. (This connector does not transmit messages that originate
inside the unit itself.)
MIDI Channels and Multi-Timbral Capabilities
With MIDI, a single cable can be used for carrying differing sets of performance information, for a number of MIDI devices. This is possible thanks to the concept of MIDI channels. MIDI channels are easy to understand if we use the analogy of television broadcasting.
Many television programs are broadcast from many TV stations and your TV antenna
receives them all. By setting your television to a specific channel, you can watch only
the desired program. The same idea applies to MIDI channels. The master device is
somewhat like the broadcast station, and the slave device is like a television receiver.
The MIDI messages carried by the MIDI cable are like the programs that are transmitted
from the broadcast stations.
Station A
Station B
Station C
The cable from the antenna carries the TV signals for a variety of broadcasts.

On a TV, the channel is selected
to watch the station you want.
SCB-55.QX4

MIDI provides sixteen channels (1—16). When the channel which the sending device
(the master) is using to transmit on matches the channel which the receiving device (the
slave) is using to receive on, the performance data is conveyed. When the MIDI channels are set as illustrated below and you play the keyboard, sound will be produced only
by sound module B. Sound module A will not sound. This is because only sound module B is set to receive on the same channel that the keyboard is using to transmit on.
Sound module A’s channel doesn’t match, so it won’t sound.

SOUND Canvas
The SCB-55 is capable of simultaneously recognizing the MIDI messages on all 16 channels. In other words, it is capable of playing 16 different Parts at the same time. Of these,
the Part which is set to receive on MIDI channel 10 is known as the Drum Part. This Part
provides a collection of percussive instrument sounds, with a different sound for each
Note Number (p. 19). The other Parts, those having a MIDI receive channel from 1-9 or
11-16, are known as Standard Parts, and are used for melody or bass, chords, etc.
Sound modules such as the SCB-55 are multi-timbral, which means they can simultaneously receive data on a multiple number of MIDI channels, and can play the musical
data for a number of Parts simultaneously.
(2) MIDI Messages Handled by the SCB-55
Various types of MIDI messages are used to convey a musical performance.
Channel messages are used to convey musical actions, such as “how hard a key was
struck” (converted into a data format called a MIDI message). The action the device
takes (how to produce the sound, etc.) when each MIDI message is received will depend
on the specifications of the device. If the function requested by a message is not included in the device, the desired effect may not be achieved.
* MIDI messages required for responding to General MIDI System Level 1 specifications
are marked with a ✩.
Note Messages
✩
These messages convey what is played on a keyboard or other instrument. The types of
Note messages are as follows:
Note Number:
Note On:
Note Off:
Note On Velocity:
A number representing the position of a key on a keyboard.
Indicates that a key has been pressed.
Indicates that a key has been released.
The strength with which a key has been pressed.
Note Numbers range from 0—127 and correspond with the positions of keys on a keyboard. Middle C (C4) is number 60. In the Drum Part, a different percussive instrument
sound is assigned to each Note Number.
Pitch Bend Change
✩
This message conveys the operation of the bender lever (or pitch bend wheel) that is
found on many synthesizers. The pitch will change when this message is received.

Bank Select (Controller Number: 0, 32)
Program Change Messages
✩
These messages are generally used to change tones. The tones are selected with
Program Numbers 1 to 128. In the SCB-55, the Tone can be changed using Program
Change messages. If a Bank Select (Control Change message) is used with a Program
Change, more Variations can be selected.
Control Change Messages
These messages control the modulation and pan, etc. Each function is classified with a
Control Change number.
•Modulation (Controller Number: 1)
✩
A vibrato effect is applied when this message is received.
•Volume (Controller Number: 7)
✩
This message conveys the volume level of the part. The part’s volume will change when
this message is received.
•Expression (Controller Number: 11)
✩
This message conveys the change in volume. This is used to lower or raise the volume
during a song.
* The part volume will change with either the volume message (Controller Number: 7) or
expression message (Controller Number: 11). Note that if a 0 value is received with
either of the messages, the part volume will be 0, and the part’s volume will not increase
even with the other message.
•Panpot (Controller Number: 10)
✩
This message provides adjustment for the sound location in the stereo field (L/R).
Effective only when a stereo output is used.

•Hold 1 (Controller Number: 64)
✩
This message conveys the pressing and releasing of the damper (sustain) pedal. Notes
will be held when ‘hold on’ is received. Sounds which decay naturally (such as pianos)
will decay more slowly when ‘hold on’ is received. Sustaining sounds (such as organs)
will be held until ‘hold off’ is received.
•Sostenuto (Controller Number: 66)
The pedal that sustains notes only when it is stepped on is called the sostenuto pedal.
This message conveys the action of pressing and releasing this pedal. When ‘sostenuto
on’ is received, only notes played at the same time will be sustained. Sounds which
decay naturally (such as pianos) will decay more slowly when ‘sostenuto on’ is received.
Sustaining sounds (such as organs) will be held until ‘sostenuto off’ is received.
•Soft (Controller Number: 67)
The pedal that softens the sound of notes played is called the soft pedal. This message
conveys the action of pressing and releasing this pedal. When ‘soft on’ is received, the
cut off frequency is lowered, and a soft sound is achieved. When ‘sostenuto off’ is
received, the original sound is restored.

This message applies ‘chorus’ to a Part.
•Portamento
•Portamento Time
•Portamento Control
(Controller Number: 65)
(Controller Number: 5)
(Controller Number: 84)
The portamento function smoothly changes the pitch from the last key pressed to the key
currently being pressed. When portamento is received, the portamento effect is turned
on or off. The speed of the pitch change is set with the portamento time. When portamento control is received, the Source Note number (key pressed last) is specified.
•RPN LSB, RPN MSB
•Data Entry
(Controller Number: 100, 101) ✩
(Controller Number: 6, 38)
✩
RPN (Registered Parameter Number) functions are defined within the MIDI standards
and can be used with different devices.
The parameter to be changed is specified with RPN MSB and RPN LSB, and the parameter value is set with the following data entry. The pitch bend sensitivity, master coarse
tune and master fine tune values can be changed with RPN.
* The values changed with RPN will not be initialized even if the tone is changed with a
Program Change, etc.
•NRPN LSB, MSB
•Data Entry
(Controller Number: 98, 99)
(Controller Number: 6, 38)
The device’s characteristic variation parameters can be changed with the NRPN (NonRegistered Parameter Number). The parameter to be changed is specified in NRPN MSB
and NRPN LSB, and the parameter value is set with the following data entry.
Common NRPN are set in the GS Format, and the variation parameter can be changed
using application software, etc., that is GS Format compatible. The vibrato, cut off frequency, resonance, and envelope values can be changed with NRPN.
* The values changed with NRPN will not be initialized even if the tone is changed with a
Program Change, etc.
* The specifications for NRPNs differ depending on the manufacturer. If an NRPN included in song data does not conform to the GS Format, the data will not be played as
expected. To play song data from a different manufacturer, set the “NRPN Reception
Switch” to OFF. When the SCB-55 receives a “GM System ON,” it will automatically
turn the “NRPN Reception Switch” off.
Aftertouch Messages (Channel Pressure
✩)
Aftertouch refers to additional pressure put on a key after playing a note. The variation
in aftertouch pressure can create changes in the sound produced. There are two types of
aftertouch messages: Channel and Polyphonic. Channel aftertouch affects all note numbers on the same MIDI channel. Polyphonic aftertouch affects only individual keys
(note numbers) that are pressed with relatively more force than others.
* Notes will not be affected when an aftertouch message is received while at the factory
settings. Turn aftertouch message reception on with an Exclusive message, and specify
what function aftertouch will control.

* Parameter values set with RPN and NRPN will not change even if a Reset All Controllers
is received.
Active Sensing Messages
These messages monitor the integrity of MIDI connections. When the MIDI IN connector receives Active Sensing messages, it will enter the ‘Active Sensing’ mode. If Active
Sensing messages (or other MIDI messages) are not received at 420 millisecond
intervals, the device will judge that a cable is disconnected or there is a damaged
connection. All sounds will be cut off, and a Reset All Controllers message will be
processed. Monitoring for Active Sensing messages is terminated.
System Exclusive Messages
Exclusive messages are used to control a characteristic operation of the device. Universal
System Exclusive messages can be used for all devices - regardless of the manufacturer.
General Exclusive messages, however cannot convey data between different models.
Roland’s Exclusive messages have a unique manufacturer ID, device ID, and model ID
so that the type of data can be determined.
•GM System On (Universal Non-Realtime System Exclusive)
✩
When the ‘GM System On’ message is received, the unit will be set to correspond with
the General MIDI basic settings. Reception of NRPNs will no longer be allowed after a
‘GM System On’ has been received.
The ‘GM System On’ MIDI message is included at the beginning of song data that carries
the GM logo. When the song data is played from the beginning, the device will be automatically initialized to the basic settings.
•GS Reset (GS Format Common System Exclusive)
When the ‘GS Reset’ message is received, all the GS basic settings are restored on the
unit. When a GS reset is received, the NRPNs specified with the GS Format can be
received.
The GS reset MIDI message is included at the beginning of song data that carries the GS
logo. When the song data is played from the beginning, the device will automatically
be initialized to the basic settings.

•Master Volume (Universal Realtime System Exclusive)
This is a common universal Exclusive message for controlling the master volume of all
parts.
•Other Exclusive Messages
The SCB-55 responds to GS Universal System Exclusive messages (as specified by the GS
Format) so its settings can be controlled by software or external controllers that also conform to the GS Format.

(4) About the MIDI Implementation Chart
MIDI has made it possible for a wide variety of devices to exchange information, but it is
not always true that all types of MIDI messages can be exchanged between all types of
devices. For example, if you use a synthesizer as a master device to control a digital
piano, the pitch bender (the lever or wheel that modifies the pitch) of the synthesizer
will have no effect on the sound of the piano.
The important thing to keep in mind when using MIDI is that the slave device must be
able to ‘understand’ what the master is ‘saying.’ In other words, the MIDI messages
must be common to both master and slave.
To help you quickly determine what types of MIDI messages can be exchanged between
master and slave, the Operation Manual for every MIDI device includes a MIDI
Implementation chart. By looking at this chart, you can quickly see what messages the
device is able to transmit and receive. The left side of the chart lists the names of a variety of MIDI messages, and the Transmission and Reception columns use “o” and “x”
marks to indicate whether or not each of these messages can be transmitted or received.
This means that a specific MIDI message can be exchanged only if there is an “o” in
both the Transmission column of the master and the Reception column of the slave
device. MIDI implementation charts are standardized, so you can place the charts from
two manuals side-by-side and see at a glance how the two devices will communicate.
A detailed explanation concerning the data format used for Exclusive messages, and the
implementation of MIDI used on the SCB-55 can be found starting on page 21.

time controller (regardless portamento on/off.)
If there is a currently sounding voice whose note number is coincident with
the source note number, the voice’s pitch will glide to the new Note On’s
pitch according to the portamento time without re-triggering (played in legato). Then no new voice should be assigned.

Each function of an NRPN is described by the individual manufacturer.
To use NRPN, set NRPN number (MSB/LSB) before sending data. Then
send data by Data entry message (Controller number 6/38). And then, it is
recommended to send RPN null (RPN number = 7FH/7FH) to prevent the
data from being unexpectedly change.

“GS reset” uses a form of Roland Exclusive Message. “Turn General MIDI
System On” uses a form of Universal Non Realtime Message.

SCB-55 can receive the various parameters using System Exclusive messages of the following data format.
GS Common Exclusive messages use Model ID = 42H and Device ID = 17
(10H).
SCB-55 has a unique Exclusive communication function which has it’s
own Model IDs in addition to the GS Common Exclusive messages.
(1) Data set 1
DT1
This message corresponds to the actual data transfer process.
On receiving a DT1 message, the device writes the data to internal memory according to the address.

* SCB-55 only recognizes the DT1 messages whose address and size match
the Parameter Address Map (Section 2).
* A DT1 message cannot include data more than 128 bytes. If the amount
of data to send is large (more than 128 bytes), then send the data in separate packets at an interval of 40ms or more.
* The error checking process uses a Checksum. Refer to “Useful
Information” (p. 30) to calculate a Checksum.

ASSIGN MODE is a parameter used to select the voice assign manner when “Multiple Note Ons” occur (the same note number on the same channel at the same
time).
The best assign modes (SINGLE (0) for the Drum part and LIMITED-MULTI (1) for the other parts) are selected automatically, so you need not reset this parameter.

USE FOR DRUM PART is a parameter to define the part to be used as an ordinary part (0), as a drum part using DRUM MAP1 (1), or a drum part using DRUM
MAP2 (2).
The default is MAP1 (1) for Part 10 (MIDI CH=10, x=0), and all other parts are set to ordinary parts (OFF(0)).

* To indicate a decimal number for the MIDI channel, Bank number, and
Program number, add one to the values in the table.
* The resolution of 7-bit Hexadecimal numbers is 128. Use several bytes for
values which require higher resolution.
i.e. The number “aa bbH” in 7-bit Hexadecimal is “aa x 128 + bb” in
Decimal form.
* A signed number (with a sign +/-) is indicated as 00H = -64, 40H = 0,
7FH=+63.
So the signed number “aaH” in 7-bit Hexadecimal is “aa - 64” in Decimal
form.
In the case of two bytes, it is regarded as 00 00H = 8192,
40 00H = 0, 7F 7FH=+8191.
So the signed number “aa bbH” in 7-bit Hexadecimal is “aa bbH - 40 00H =
(aa x 128 + bb) - (64 x 128)” in Decimal form.
* The data indicated as “nibbled” is a 4-bit Hexadecimal number.
i.e. “0a 0bH” is “a x 16 + b.”
<Example 1> Convert “5AH” in Hexadecimal to a Decimal number.
(By using the table) 5AH = 90
<Example 2> Convert “12 34H” in 7-bit Hexadecimal to a Decimal number.
(By using the table) 12H = 18, 34H = 52
So,
18 x 128 + 52 = 2356
<Example 3> Convert “0A 03 09 0D” in nibblized form to a Decimal number.
(By using the table) 0AH = 10, 03H = 3, 09H = 9, 0DH = 13
So,
((10 x 16 + 3) x 16 + 9) x 16 + 13 = 41885
•Example of actual MIDI messages
<Example 1> 92 3E 5F
“9n” is a status of a Note On message, and “n” is a MIDI channel number.
The second byte is the Note number, and the third is Velocity.
2H = 2, 3EH = 62, 5FH = 95
So, this is a Note On message of MIDI channel=3, Note number=62 (D4) and
Velocity=95.
<Example 2> CE 49
“Cn” is a status of a Program change message, and “n” is a MIDI channel number.
The second byte is a Program number.
EH = 14, 49H = 73
So, this is a Program change message of MIDI channel=15,
Program number= 74 (Flute in GS).
30
<Example 3> EA 00 28
“EnH” is a status of a Pitch bend change message, and “n” is a MIDI channel number.
The second byte (00H) is an LSB and the third (28H) is an MSB of a Pitch
bend value.
The Pitch bend value is :
28 00H - 40 00H = 40 x 128 + 0 - (64 x 128 + 0) = 5120 - 8192 = -3072
So, this is a Pitch bend change message of MIDI channel=11,
Pitch bend value = -3072
If the Pitch bend sensitivity is set to 2 semitones, and the Pitch bend value 8192 (00 00H) is defined as -200 cents,
The actual pitch bend value of this message is :
-200 x (-3072) / (-8192) = -75 cent
•Example of Roland System Exclusive messages
and Checksum
Roland System Exclusive messages (DT1) have a Checksum at the end of
the data (just before EOX) to be able to check for communication errors.
The Checksum is determined by values of address and data (or size) included in the message.
<How to calculate Checksums>
(“H” indicates Hexadecimal.)
The error checking process employs a sum-check error detection. It provides binary bit figures whose lower 7 bits are zero when values for an
address, data (or size) and the Checksum are summed.
One practical equation to determine Checksum is;
If the address is “ad bb ccH” and the data (or the size) is “dd ee ffH”
ad + bb + cc + dd + ee + ff = sum
sum / 128 = quotient ... remainder
128 - remainder = checksum
<Example 1> Set “REVERB MACRO” to “ROOM 3”
According to the Parameter Address Map, the Address of REVERB MACRO
is 40 01 30H, and the Value corresponding to ROOM 3 is 02H.
So, the message should be :
F0 41 10 42 12 40 01 30 02 ??
F7
(1) (2) (3) (4) (5) address data checksum (6)
(1) Exclusive Status
(2) ID (Roland)
(3) Device ID (16)
(4) Model ID (GS)
(5) Command ID (DT1)
(6) End of Exclusive
The Checksum is :
40H + 01H + 30H + 02H = 64 + 1 + 48 + 2 = 115 (sum)
115 (sum) / 128 = 0 (quotient) ... 115 (remainder)
checksum = 128 - 115 (remainder) = 13 = 0DH
Therefore, the message to send is : F0 41 10 42 12 40 01 30 02 0D F7
<Example 2> Set “MASTER TUNE” to +23.4 cents by System Exclusive
The Address of “MASTER TUNE” is 40 00 00H. The Value should be nibblized data whose resolution is 0.1 cents, and which is a signed value
(00 04 00 00H (= 1024) = 0 ).
+23.4[cents] = 234 + 1024 = 1258 = 04 EAH = 00 04 0E 0AH (nibblized)
So, the message should be :
F0 41 10 42 12 40 00 00 00 04 0E 0A ??
F7
