  1. Pedal assign issue

    Hi, everyone! Hopefully someone can help. I’m having an issue with the pedal assignment on the XWP1 when switching in and out of performance mode. I downloaded a bunch of user sounds from this site and loaded them onto my board. To my delight, I discovered that some of the organ patches utilize the sustain pedal as an on off switch for the rotary speed function, allowing you to play the organ with both hands and switch the speed with your foot pedal. After some digging I found that you set up this parameter from a dropdown in the data editor. I couldn’t find a way to do this on the board itself, only with the editor. But I was really happy to discover it since the XWP1 doesn’t have a dedicated input for a midi cc/expression pedal. The problem I’m having is when I switch away from one of the performances set up like this (pedal assigned to rotary rather than hold) and into the tone mode. If I select a PCM patch like a piano or electric piano that is set up to use the sustain pedal as a hold/sustain rather than rotary, the pedal doesn’t work at all. It’s like the board doesn’t load the pedal assignment for the newly selected patch. It seems to retain its previous pedal assign setting from the performance mode even though you are now playing a PCM tone that is saved to use the pedal as a sustain pedal. If I switch back into performance mode and select a performance that is set up to use the pedal as a sustain/hold function, then switch to a PCM piano, then the sustain pedal will work correctly as sustain pedal. So at least it appears consistent that the board is remembering the previous pedal assign even after switching to a new tone, but it would be better if it loaded the pedal assign that was saved with the patch you have just selected. It is frustrating because it involves several extra steps to get the pedal assign correct when switching patches. Can anyone else recreate this? Am I doing something wrong? I’m on firmware 1.11. Thanks so much!
  2. PX-3 won't reinitialize or remember registries

    I forgot to add. Tonight I figured out a workaround: Use an SD card. Once it is formatted, create a new registration and save it to a registration bank. Then before you turn off the piano, follow the steps in the manual for saving the bank (or all of the banks) to the SD card. It's a quick and painless process. I then turned off the PX3 and turned it back on. I had to load the bank I had just saved from the SD card but that was quick and my registration was right where I stored it. Cool. Next, I have to test this out after I create multiple registrations to see if all of them will save and load in the same way as the one test case did.
  3. PX-3 won't reinitialize or remember registries

    I looked at the main circuit board for something that resembled memory but didn't immediately identify anything. I suppose it could look like an op amp. If you figure out what the component is and where on the board it is, could you let us know? Almost all circuit board parts are sourced from third party vendors so it's likely it is available somewhere. I don't mind soldering small components either. I'd be more worried that the board might lose all of its tones and have to be reinstalled somehow.
  4. Cannot save registration data on my PX-3

    Hey, guys, I am having an issue with my PX-3 not saving anything -- registrations, bank names, etc. nothing. When I try to perform a factory reset it hangs up on the "Please Wait" message infinitely and will not complete the reset. I'm handy with keyboard repairs and opened mine up looking for an internal battery but found nothing on any of the circuit boards. Has anyone resolved this issue? Thanks.
  5. Factory Reset

    With the keyboard turned off, hold the Tone and Function buttons at the same time while powering on.
  6. PX-3 won't reinitialize or remember registries

    Hey, guys, I am having the exact same issue with my PX-3 not saving anything -- registrations, bank names, etc. and doing a factory reset produces and infinite "Please Wait" message. I'm handy with keyboard repairs and opened mine up looking for an internal battery but found nothing on any of the circuit boards. Has anyone resolved this issue? Thanks.
