But, on this subject, do others find USB transfer to be crazy slow? I think I'm getting like 100MB/min, 2GB takes 20 min. Card reader ftw.
Yes, me too. Other issue (as reported before): peaks are wrong (I've only use the app, i don't know if also the recorder monitor is affected by this issue). If signal is between - 10 and 0 db, it shows signal as if it would be >0db.

If you unplugged the R-07 without using Windows to "remove the device" that might be the cause of your problem.  I'm not sure how you would fix that but it is likely that someone here can provide a solution.  You should post your question in the "Computer" assistance section too:  http://taperssection.com/index.php?board=5.0

I updated the firmware on the R-07 using my laptop (Windows 10).  Right from the start, my desktop, also Windows 10, would not recognize the R-07 and list it as a device.  Good luck!!

It sounds like your computer is seeing the R-07 as a hard drive or some sort of memory device. Where you must remove the device by telling the computer that's what you want to do. Then wait for the computer to say it is safe to remove the device now.  Or turn off the computer off and it will be safe to disconnect the R-07 from the computer. And if you don't that computer will not recognize the R-07 when you reconnect to it the next time. It should be able to connect to any other computer, just not the computer that you disconnected it from incorrectly.

Once you download ( or transfer to some other storage device ) all that is in your memory, try reformatting it again and it should be able to read it again?

This has happen to me with thumb drives .........

Sorry if this has been answered before, but I couldn't find anything...
When using the bluetooth app as a remote, do you have to keep the app open in your phone all the time or is it possible to close it and then re-open it some 30 minutes later?

I have a Samsung Galaxy S7. When I close the app, I follow this procedure:
1) close the app in the background (close it in the recent apps screen)
2) disable Bluetooth
3) enable Bluetooth
4) open the app
5) push search circle button
6) when r07 is found, select it and wait that an asterisk (*) appears
7) close the device search window by pressing the x on the top-right of the screen

(step 7 is the key!)

Just to update some findings on SD cards:

Previously I tried a 64GB card and let the R-07 format it. I thought it was working fine, but following advice here realised that it was only formatted up to the same capacity of a 32GB card. In the SD card information is shows capacity of 26.22GB, when the SD card is connected directly to a computer it shows capacity of 26.22GB, and when the R-07 is connected directly to the computer it also shows a capacity of 26.22GB.

I have then used Guiformat FAT32 to format a 64GB sdxc card and got the following results. It would record to the card, and in the SD card information it shows a capacity of 59.44GB. When I remove the SD card and connect directly to the computer all the recorded files are visible and can be played, and the capacity is shown as 59.44GB. But it was not recognised when the R-07 was connected to the computer, the card needs to be removed.

I have used Guiformat FAT32 to get a number of cards to work in a number devices which stated larger cards were not supported, including the Sony M10 which I had a 128GB card working in.

It would seem that to be absolutely safe for now only used 32GB cards, but I am leaving the 64GB card in for now and will report back on performance later.

Just to update that in the 3 months I have been using a Guiformat FAT32 formatted 64GB card I have had no issues at all.

I've had one corrupted file on a 64GB card, but that was with the old firmware, nothing since then.
The text on the front are very low quality though, they can be scratched off very easily (don't try it).

I've now done a number of shows with Church mics and Ugly battery box directly into the R07, no preamp, using 2xWAV and I have been very impressed with the results.

What I am finding annoying is that when I close the App or phone it then fails to reconnect the bluetooth when I go back in. The App can see the player when it scans, it just won't connect. If I shutdown the phone and restart it will then find the device and connect, but it's annoying to keep doing this.

Is anybody else having the same issue? Does anybody have a workaround?

Using iOS, it reconnects automagically most of the time. If not, I just scan and connect, no problem. Needed to force quit the app once because it wouldn't connect, but only once.

I'm using a Samsung S9+ so just going to dig out my old iPhone 4s to see if that works better.

what do you set your levels at ? I be seeing a progressive rock band front row in a midsize theatre soon. I just might try this way, thanks.

I was towards the front of a moderately loud gig on Friday, and the levels were set at 52. I've never had to use the backup WAV file yet.

When using the 2xWAV setting the minimum level available on the main recording is 42, which pretty much means you can't use a preamp.

Also just found that I can't use my iPhone 4s because the App requires IOS 10 or later. Darn it.

7) close the device search window by pressing the x on the top-right of the screen

(step 7 is the key!)

I couldn't get this to work for me, but having had a play around for an hour I got the following to work on my S9+

1. open the app, if it is frozen
2. click on R-07 in the bottom right ... sometimes you have to really persist and hit it numerous times
3. hopefully the R-07 will be shown with an asterisk (*) otherwise go to A.
4. in which case close the device search window by pressing the x on the top-right of the screen


A. close the app in the background (close it in the recent apps screen)
B. click on Bluetooth
C. click on Roland R-07 Midi settings
D. unpair
E. open the app
F. push search circle button
G. when r07 is found, select it and wait that an asterisk (*) appears
H. close the device search window by pressing the x on the top-right of the screen

Anyway, hopefully by trial and error you will find one of Paul's or my methods will work.

Interesting. For the single show I did with the R07 (loud punk rock), I had the levels at 55 and got peaks around -6dB. That was MK6>tinybox>R07 with no gain on the tinybox.
