I used to work on older Roland synthesizer with software DAW successfully.
According to FP-30 piano manual it can send and receive MIDI signals on all 16 channels, but the manual is not giving any details.
Can anybody tell if you can setup this FP-30 to assign specific MIDI channel to specific sound.

I succeeded to send and receive MIDI in general, but for the moment, when it plays by DAW control it uses only piano sound, no other. It seems that it may be receiving and sending only on one channel at the time.

By the way, if there is some good place on the web that I can access real human Roland support, that would be great too. I looked but could not find.

By the way - for this matter, manual says, quote:

"This setting specifies the MIDI channel on which this unit will transmit. MIDI uses sixteen “MIDI channels,” which are numbered 1 through 16. By connecting MIDI devices and specifying the appropriate MIDI channel for each device, you can play or select sounds on those devices.
This unit will receive all sixteen channels (1–16)."

I just now downloaded the manual.

On page 6 there's a diagram of the the keyboard along with a description of what each does (when you also hold the function key).

Notes C2 through D#3 select MIDI transmit channels 1 through 16.
