re: X-1000

has problem with cue,sfc,sfz when ff or frw any suggestions on how to correct this? I have to hit power off when it gets going fast but if i go in short bursts of speed it works as expected. Sounds like either braking system or the memory presets.

re: X-1000

I just got my X1000 working, here is a article i found that was very helpful, and it tells you how to fix the problem your talking about. Hope this helps.
