Re: RML-1 programming

Well... It's only taken me 6 years - to the day - to get my head around this! :lol: When using CAM software you don't really need to think about it too much - when your trying get 3rd party Gcode working on an RML-1 only machine working you really do have to think about it. What I have realised thou...

Re: How many Roland MDX-20 still exist in the world

G-code to RML-1 converter

This would be super handy for all the thousands of older Roland machines out there! Let's bring them back from the brink of obsolescence! :D

I'm sure the wiring for the brass puck is in the manual. It's just shorting the circuit - you'll not blow anything. Measure the depth of your puck with a micrometer and input that in Vpanel. I think it was 15mm as default? I guess you never received the last private message - it seems to be stuck in...
