Viewing topic "volume level on MO 8"

When I plug in my headphones into the MO8 I have to turn the volume ALL the way up on the MO and it’s still not loud enough. So I tried the headphones on my Roland and I only had to turn up the volume about halfway. What gives? Is there a setting that I am missing?

Here is a soloution that may help. ( Headphone AMP )

This device will boost the sound very well. Check it out below.

There is an overall Volume setting within the operating system...(this volume can be changed if you recently played a GM file that has a fade out)…

Press [F1] GENERAL
Press [SF1] TG
Make sure the VOLUME is set to 127

There is also an overall OUTPUT GAIN parameter
Press [F2] I/O
Press [SF2] OUTPUT
Make the OUTPUT Gain for L&R;= +6dB

Keep in mind, some preset sounds output volume are weak (set around 40-60, instead 127). Go to Effect, Output...set over 100, then save as user.

Hope that helps,

I’m having an issue with this, too. I just bought a brand new JBL EON 515 to run my MO8 through, and it’s barely louder than the TV.
I have checked both of the volume settings in the MO, and both are wide open, 127 and 6dB.
I have hooked the speaker up to my breakout box and have plenty of volume there, so it’s not the speaker/amp.
I was running the MO thru my 100 watt Fender Vibrosonic Reverb and plenty of volume there, too.
Anybody know what I need to do to be able to get the MO to get more signal to the EON?

maybe the cable or you plug into wrong input (check the switch mic/line)

ZCAT - Funny, I am in the same exact situation.  I just bought the EON 515, and it sounds great, but volume levels aren’t where they should be and get drowned out by our drummer.

I am still looking for a better solution, but you can click the MIC/LINE toggle in the back, but MAKE SURE to turn down the input level control knob as low as it goes and slowly increase it.  This shoots the MO volume up way high and all volume controls are much more sensitive…

If you find another way, please let me know.
