Hello everyone
I'd like to compare with the owners Mp7 these 2 questions:

1) How can I level out the volume of Setup memories?

2) It happens to me a strange effect.
When you change the Setup (or Sound) by holding down a chord,
you hear a loud sound / noise initial along with the new sound

It seems to be caused by a trigger / conflict DSP EFX
.. I dont Know.
And this also happens with the pedal pressed F10H

example:
2-1-B Setup (Super T EP), keep a chord with the left hand, now you change with Setup "A" (2-1-A LAPiano)
then you play again the chord

Here, in this instant you hear this.

Do you have any advice?
Thanks

IMOL, are you using the latest software (currently v1.05)?

Kind regards,
James

You have to do that manually by ear I guess. Not really sure what you mean though.

See Kawai James' answer. Thanks to his excellent support, the problem you describe is fixed in the latest update.

James, thanks for your reply

when I received Mp7, I immediately checked the software version
it was 1,03 and I have updated to 1,05 and
I was very confident that this would fix

(( A detail of little importance, perhaps:

after the update, I noticed the absence in the SYSTEM Menu of the functions "User Key Volume" and "User Stretch Tuning"
so I reloaded the software update 1.05, and there are now. ))


I dont know if with the software V. 1.03 the problem was already existing.

Yesterday, after your reply, I tried to reload the software again V1.05
but it was useless

I would like to record a demo to better understand what happens.
However I dont think it's normal, because in this way the instrument is unplayable, IHMO.

regards

IMOL, please try turning the MP7 on while holding the STORE button.
The OS version number will be shown in the LCD display. If this is v1.05, the update was successful and you are using the latest publicly available OS.

If you still hear something unexpected when changing SETUPs, please provide a detailed step-by-step procedure to repeat the same phenomenon. If you are able to post a video on Youtube (unlisted, not public), this may also be helpful.

While the MP7's DSP processor and effect handling is very good (and even better with recent updates), it may not always be possible to make large-scale changes to sounds 100% smoothly.

Kind regards,
James

In addition to what James suggested you might also want to check the memory contents if the flash was successful and your EEPROMs are healthy. To do so, please perform a factory reset first (important), go to SYSTEM -> Reset -> Factory.

Then turn off the device.

Now press A<->B, <<, >> together while powering on, release after you see the boot logo.

In the following ProgramCheckSum screen you should read the following CRCs:

08DF:All
AC84:Bt 88EB:Pg
97BE:St 38DC:Rc
0142:Rm B147:Cd
02D6:Id DE52:Tn


If you see those values, your SW part of the instrument is ok and in default settings with successfully applied 1.05.
Otherwise either you did not perfom the factory reset or the flash failed...

Hmm...I don't recall that boot-up check being written in the owner's manual...

Cheers,
James

Correct, the user manual is lacking it...

However it is described as an instructive step in the Japanese update instructions of firmware 1.05.

Seems that the Japanese versions of instructions differ from the other languages, but of course the steps are still applicable anyways...
