Technics KN800 for sale

I have a Technics KN800 keyboard for sale. It’s in full working order and comes complete with 3 manuals, power cable, stand and music rest. Cosmetically, it could be better but there is no severe scarring. One key has suffered trauma (before I owned the k…

Re: Technics KN6500 & Midi

Mike - I play in an Abba Band and use backing tracks in the way you described earlier in this thread, and then play over the top of them.
Very simply I use an ipad attached to the 'sound in' of my KN7000 with the tracks on it that I want to play. Then ha…

Re: Technics KN6500 & Midi

I have decided to forget, at least temporarily, the use of sequencing software on my PC. I am now looking at using the onboard sequencer on my KN6500. The manual gives me encouragement that this might be an option that will achieve my ends. If anyone read…

Re: No aytomatic change styles

Use the panel memories sequentially to make the changes just when you want to make them.

Re: Performance Pads

Interesting question Susan. Firstly, if I understand your question correctly you want for example 'Birds tweeting' at the same time as 'bells ringing'...?

Performance Pads

Can anyone help me with Performance Pads Compile Bank and saving them. I only seem to be able to get one at a time from Bank A. I don't understand why there's not a separate menu for saving them.
Many thanks
Susan

Re: Attn. KN6000 Owners Upgrade Problems !!!!!

Hi Mike:

If only I could get it working once! However, I will have another go later and see if I can identify exactly what my problem is. I'll also try the Atari forum again and see if I can drum up any support.

I prefer a music notation editor. I o…

Re: Attn. KN6000 Owners Upgrade Problems !!!!!

Mike,

In brief for now...

I'll take a look at your link on more depth soon.

I don't know much about Atari emulation but if you can get it working once then you would be able to export your sequences as midis, or send to your Technics and record (…

Re: Attn. KN6000 Owners Upgrade Problems !!!!!

I've had a look at the other links you sent me. Unfortunately, excellent as I am sure they are, neither Falcosoft nor Varranger seem to serve the purpose I have in mind. I used Breakthru' for several (about 30) years and got very familiar with it. It serv…

Re: Attn. KN6000 Owners Upgrade Problems !!!!!

I'm taking a longer look at Midiworks PA+ but I notice the software is "dedicated for Korg PA series instruments" and I wonder if that would render it unsuitable for the Technics KN series. I'm trying to locate a demo video or some blurb - the download pa…

Well.... you will find that you can run an Atari ST Emulator on PC and run Breakthru if you really like it!

However, it was a slightly wild guess by me that Midiworks PA Plus would seem like an updated Atari ST sequencer to you, sufficiently close for …

Thanks, Mike, for the links. I shall follow them up when I get back home this evening. Just to re-iterate what I'm seeking, I'm looking for a replacement for a Gajits software package called "Breakthru". It's a sequencer designed to run on the Atari ST an…
