I have just purchased a Roland SCD-70, because I wanted to do some high-quality game soundtrack recordings. The SCD-70 to my knowledge is the only Sound Canvas that is backwards-compatible with the SC-55 and has a higher sampling rate of 44.1/48 khz combined with a digital out. So I thought it would make a good candidate to do some clean recordings.
Now concerning the different instrument maps...
The manual states the following:
 Control change 32 value: MIDI bank number lower byte 0: use the INST MAP setting, 1: SC-55 map, 2: SC-88 map, 3: SC-88Pro ma […]
 Control change 32 value: MIDI bank number lower byte
0: use the INST MAP setting,
1: SC-55 map,
2: SC-88 map,
3: SC-88Pro map,
4: SC-8820 map)
So a value of zero is supposed to use the so called "INST MAP" setting and it also is the default. Moreover in the MIDI implementation documentation on the accompanying CD-ROM it says:
The SC-D70 recognizes the Bank Select LSB (Controller number 32) as a flag for switching between the SC-55MAP, the SC-88MAP, the SC-88ProMAP, and the SC-8820MAP. With a Bank Select LSB of 00H, the map selected by the front panel INST MAP button will be selected. With an LSB of 01H ... [and so on]
I was wondering, what button are they talking about? There is no INST MAP button on this device or is there?
Am I overlooking something?
