Issue

You receive the message 'No preset at...' in Equator.

In more detail

If the GRAND's SoundDial or RISE's Preset Switch are used to navigate an Equator playlist with fewer presets than their value range – i.e., fewer than 48 for the GRAND's SoundDial and fewer than 127 for the RISE's Preset Switch – you may reach a preset position value with no available preset.

You'll see the following message displayed:

Equator ➝ 'No preset...' warning

Solution

How to resolve the 'No preset...' message

  • Connect your Seaboard to a compatible computer with the Seaboard software bundle downloaded and installed, and switch your Seaboard on
  • Launch ROLI Dashboard and navigate to the ☰ menu in the upper right corner of your window
  • Click on the 'Reset' button next to 'My Seaboard' – this will perform a hardware reset on your Seaboard, which will return all hardware controllers to their original values, including the SoundDial/Preset Switch

If you don't have access to ROLI Dashboard:

  • RISE: Reset the Preset Switch manually by clicking on the left-hand arrow until it is blacked out – this will bring the Preset Switch's current value to 0, its lowest value.
  • GRAND: Reset the SoundDial by twisting the rim until both the preset and bank LED indicators are at the top of the SoundDial's rim.
