Hi guys anyone using a looper,i got a Rc-1 and trying to connect to the dgx 660 but no sound!any help would be appreciated...
Thanks for all your help i appreciate it but after numerous attempts at changing ports and cables ive tried everything even the music store have sold me 3 different ended cables my only thought is my audio volume is at _ _ and i cant reset it,maybe this is the problem i cant wait to get this sorted,if i ever doAh, I see!
Nothing working unfortunately tried the others speakers too..maybe I need an amp but cant understand why the dgx doesn't produce the sound out again!!?.When you plug headphones in do you get any sound in them?
Is the output socket switchable in the Menu system between headphones and Line Levels?
If you connect an Amp up directly to the DGX output do you get sound out of it?
Thanks for your help..I have the volume problem resumed and again tried every possible Avenue getting tired but determined to fix this,heading back to the music store again tomorrow hopefully your post will help!..When a DGX or similar keyboard displays “- -“ for one of the volume functions, it means that the volume function in question isn’t applicable at the current time. My Yamaha PSR-E models are like this as well, so I know exactly what you’re talking about. Let me give a few examples of what I mean by “isn’t applicable at the current time.”
These keyboard models (DGX and PSR-E) can play Styles, or they can play Songs, but they can’t play both at the same time. (You can play a Style while you’re recording a User Song, and the keyboard will play back the Style as you recorded it while your User Song is being played back, but that’s a different/special situation.)
So if you’ve got the keyboard in Style mode (STYLE button is lit up), the “Style Volume” function will display the current volume for the Style and you’ll be able to change it if you wish, but the “Song Volume” function will be displayed as “- -“ and you won’t be able to change it.
Likewise, if you’ve got the keyboard in Song mode (SONG button is lit up), the “Song Volume” function will display the current volume for the Song and you’ll be able to change it if you wish, but the “Style Volume” function will be displayed as “- -“ and you won’t be able to change it.
As far as the volume for an external audio signal, the DGX has at least two different audio inputs— a 1/4” TS jack for connecting a microphone, and a 1/8” TRS jack for connecting an auxiliary audio device. I might be wrong, but I don’t think the DGX-660 can accept audio signals through its USB TO HOST port, but many of the newer PSR-E models do have that capability. Anyway, each of these different types of incoming audio signals (MIC, AUX, and USB) has its own separate volume setting, so there should be at least two, and possibly three, volume functions on your DGX for incoming audio. Each of these functions will display “- -“ if its corresponding jack or port doesn’t have anything plugged in.
So first of all, make sure you’re looking at the correct volume function for whichever jack you’re using.
Then, if you’re looking at the correct function for that jack but the setting is still displayed as “- -,” make sure the right kind of cable is being used for that jack. As I said, I think the 1/4” microphone jack is for a TS cable (since a microphone uses a monophonic signal), whereas the 1/8” auxiliary jack is definitely for a TRS cable (since it’s expected that the auxiliary device will be sending a stereo signal).
