Recording on Roland RD-700NX

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Can someone tell me how to use the recording feature on the Roland RD-700NX? I just want to be able to listen to my compositions. I can't find this info in the manual or a web search.


Do I need to insert some sort of usb drive into the keyboard and record onto that? Or, are the recordings stored in the keyboard?
