Cautions with the update
  • We recommend that you save your data to a USB Flash Memory before you perform the update. If a problem occurs and your data is lost, you will be able to restore the original state by reloading the data you saved. For details on the procedure, refer to the following sections of the "Saving Data to a USB Flash Drive ( Save Backup )" of the Owner's Manual.
  • Never apply this update data to any product other than the TD-15. This update data may destroy the data or system program of other products.
  • Never power-off your TD-15 while the update is in progress!
    If a power failure or similar accident occurs during the update process, the TD-15 won’t be able to start up in normal operating mode. This will require servicing, so you will need to contact Roland service center near you if this occurs.
  • We regret that we are unable to answer questions regarding the update procedure using this system program. Please perform the update responsibly, following the directions given in this document.
