  • "Data Overload" - What a LOAD... of Crap!

    I've been checking around on some posts regarding the "data overload" message I have been getting. Now, I know I am not a MIDI genious, but shouldn't Roland have seen this problem in their QC (quality control). I mean, this is a $1500 module (if purchased separately) and I do NOT think it should have these types of MIDI errors. I have had the module sitting in a studio for a year without any problems. Then, MIDI man shows up and now I am getting...are you ready for this...weird burning plastic smells from the TD-10. I am using all four direct outs and I have pulled the MIDI. The problem persists and I am at a loss. Any suggestions? Why, OH WHY are electronics so damn sensitive? Don't answer that last part, it doesn't matter.

    if you got your TD-10 connected first
    in a serial chain of many midi modules
    then this could happen.

    In that case put it last and make sure
    that you only recieve on the channels you

      Now THAT is extremely bad!!!

      'I only ever quote myself - except when I quote someone else' - me

      , plenty of , and , , triggered acoustics, , and a plethora of PA blah blah freakin blah...I mean does anyone care about the specifics of pedals, speakers, processors, hardware or anything that I'm using?? :confused: Hmmm, maybe this is an appropriate place to mention that I tried out a new cymbal stand the other day...

        BAD... oh yes but have you heard of it before. I was thinking that running the direct outs was causing the problem, but my trial & error tests are inconclusive. That is why I turned to my VDrums amigos. Give me some ideas here, waiting for this thing to die is not a comforting thought.

        DANIEL - I am running it to and from a MIDI MAN which is running in and out from my computer which I use for sequencing & recording. I've pulled the MIDI and I still get the smell. Any other thoughts? I guess I'll have to call Roland, who knows maybe I got the ONE-IN-A-MILLION SCRATCH AND SNIFF TD-10!!!!!!!

        On a separate note, I am not that impressed with the TD-10 as a module. I get a lot of hiss, the interface could be better, especially at a price tag of $1,500. I can't wait for the next module. Any word on the TD-2000! They have to be close to releasing another model. Thanks for the posts, who knows maybe I'll have a TD-10 style paper-weight for sale soon.

          The TD10 isn't really a midi monster, it sounds like you need a big sampler{I bought an E4XT used for $950 on Ebay} or the XV5080 to be honest.
