    Buying the Roland FR-1X in 2022 - is Rolland discontinuing it?

    Dear community, I am planning to get a Roland FR-1X to practice during the night with headphones. However, checking its release date, I saw that the FR-1X has been in the market since 2012 (10 years!!). For any electronic device, that's a rather long time. So much has evolved since then (USB-C...

    Faulty FR-1X button 1 (classic enable )

    I've noticed recently that this button often needs a bit of persuasion before it engages but now it appears to have completely given up on me. I assume that there is a rubber membrane beneath and may just need the carbon circuit board contacts cleaned. I'm pretty techie so this sort of work...

I was pulling about a 7 out of 10 and pushing at about 3 to achieve even volumes. This weird dynamic makes changing directions very unnatural. Fixed the bellow curve from...

    Free bass on V-accordion

    I share the goal expressed by others on the forum to present the accordion as a modern instrument, not limited to oom-pah styles. Since purchasing my Roland FR-1x, I have been working on a piece by Faltermeyer to explore some areas that were previously out of my reach. In particular, the...

    Roland FR-1x growling noise.

    I have not played my fr-1x in a few years. I typically play my acoustic or fr-4x. I decided to break it out for some fun. Some of the treble keys are making a strange growling noise. I did a global reset and this did not help. Any thoughts?
