Quote from: Elantric on April 17, 2014, 12:55:50 PMMany folks are using a Roland US-20 Switcher - then they modify the US-20 to reallocate Pin#9 as a separate Ground Pin - which improves the GK-13 cable reliability for live gigs dramatically.

Quote from: Elantric on July 13, 2011, 10:50:33 AMIts important to note that many (BUT NOT ALL) of the "cheap ebay 13 pin cables" which say "For Roland 13 pin systems" - are actually Clarion or Kenwood Car Stereo CD changer cables - and have the WRONG WIRING!A real Roland 13 pin cable will be wired "1 to 1" for all 14 electrical connections (pins 1-13+round metal Ground shield = 14 connections) at both ends.Most Clarion or Kenwood car stereo CD changer cables do not use this wiring!!More details here:https://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?topic=2137.0and note the "Wrong" connections used in "Clarion or Kenwood car stereo CD changer cables " here:http://image.pinout.net/pinout_13_pin_files/connector_pinout.php?image=Clarion_C-Bus.gif&pinout=Buyer beware.

As the cable was primarily designed for Kenwood automotive remote CD disk changer
Quote from: Heffy on November 06, 2023, 07:50:02 AMI was getting a lot of glitches. They included Notes not responding and other digital artifacts. I've eliminated 99% of them by thoroughly cleaning the contact ends on all of my cables. I used pure medical-grade alcohol for cleaning first on all of the pins, inserting and removing multiple times from the sockets on both the guitar and the GR-55. Then I used Caig D100L followed by Caig G100L, both with the brush applicators. I purchased Micro Applicator Brushes from Amazon to clean each pin after each application and very closely followed the directions for both Caig products. To say I've noticed a difference is an understatement! I'm able to track much faster. The dropouts are virtually nonexistent. The differences are mind-boggling! If you haven't tried it, it's worth it. It's eliminated all of the frustrations that I've had, especially during live performances. Even my old $14 Amazon off-brand cables work like a charm!
