I think I may have discovered a GR-55 bug.
When I set the GK Vol to be the tone volume in the main controllers page (not the assigns page), setting only the modeling volume to “on”, and then turn the GK volume knob down, the model gets quieter. So far so good. But then, with the GK knob still down, if I push the EXP switch, the model volume pops back up to maximum, even while the GK knob is turned down.
This happens regardless whether the EXP or CTL or any assigns are programmed or enabled. Doesn’t seem to matter what controller the EXP switch is set to either.
Anyone else run into this?
I think I’ve narrowed the scope of this bug.
The “tone volume” controller parameter allows you to set any of four sources to “on” or “off”: PCM#1, PCM#1, model, or pickup.
If you set mutually exclusive sets of these sources to “on” and assign them to different controllers, they will still conflict. For example, if you set the GK volume to control the model tone volume (off, off, on, off), and you set the EXP to control the PCM#1 and PCM#2 tone volume (on, on, off, off), the model volume will still pop back up to full when you step on the EXPSW.
You’d think that setting a source to “off” for a controller assigned to the tone volume would cause that controller to ignore the source set to “off.”
The work-around is to only use the “tone volume” target in one of the Pedal/controller parameters, and set up any others in the “assign” area, where there does not appear to be a conflict.
