I may have misread what you meant to say. Whatever the case, I overreacted. My apologies. I was not in the best of moods this morning when I wrote that. (No, I didn't drink too much last night :-) )
To show my open mindedness on this subject and the fact that i'd still like to own a Roland VA7, perhaps you'd be agreeable to email me the page from within the owners manual, where it says about Single Fingered Chord settings.
That's where some of the misunderstanding creeps in, I'm afraid. I was under the impression that Roland told you they simply don't have any other ways to use SFC than the Roland-style. I don't know if specificly the VA-7 can do this any other way, I do know my EXR-5 can.
I've also got a printout chart that I put together sometime ago, that I emailed to Roland, Korg Wersi etc.
The printout contains all the single fingered chord positions for Yamaha and Technics keyboards. Again if you're agreeable I could email you this and you can check them, just as Roland UK have done.
The manual of my EXR-5 contains a chart where all the chords are displayed (fingersettings) along with the keys you must use to get that chord in the arranger. I too will be more than happy to scan that page and e-mail it to you. I am certainly interested in your chart, since Roland did not add that chart in the manual.
PS Let's start again, i'd like to get to the bottom of this.
Again, I apologize for my reaction earlier. To my defense I can only say English is not my native tongue, which still causes misunderstandings from time to time. I'll look up the meaning of "dismiss" next time :-)
