i have just managed to get my hands on a Roland JV-2080..my current setup is as follows..
Fatar Studio 88 midi controller [OUT] to Akai mpc2000xl midi 1[IN]
Akai mpc2000xl midi A[OUT] to Roland JV-2080 midi [IN].
my problem lies in sound layering with the JV-2080..i have no problem recording the first track on the mpc..however after i have saved the first track and want to record track number two by dubbing over the first using a different sound from the JV-2080 the sound of the first recorded track changes as well..im sure it has something to do with assigning a different midi channel to each of the tracks on the JV-2080 but i just dont know how 2 do it...SOMEONE PLEASE HELLLP!!
