Re: KN5000/KN6000

I think your problem is completely different from mine in a technical sense but, in terms of being able to recover & use stuff that you previously created, they're the same. The technical problem I had was that it seemed my hard drive was corrupt. However…

Re: KN5000/KN6000

Thank you so much for your replies.
The reason I asked if a KN5000 HDD might fit a KN6000 was, I sourced a KN6000 for sale, so I was hoping to salvage the HDD from my ‘rhythm defunct’ KN5000 to install on it.
I appreciate your advice.
Regards
Joe

Re: KN5000/KN6000

A couple of years back, I was convinced that the hard drive on my KN6500 was broken. Every time I tried to save settings for stuff I had set up on the sequencer, the instrument crashed and went through a re-boot. I arranged for a Technics engineer to visi…

Selling KN7000 UK

Hi all, I am reluctantly selling my Technics sx-KN7000. I bought it new in the early 2000s, but for the last 10 years or so it has been very underplayed and it seems a shame that such a good instrument is not being used.

It is in great condition, with…

Re: Style Disks for SX-FA1

Hi John,

I have been away a lot on travel for a while and haven't had time to work on the style disks. I was wondering if you ever had the opportunity to put together the docs for the SX-FA1 Organ.

Thank you!

Hi
Look to the age of the GA1 and GA3. At the time most floppies were formatted as 720k rather than the later default 1.44M. As Farex has stated you also need to be FAT32 file system.

Disk drive upgrade to USB drive

Almost everyone uses a model from GOTEK to this, which is cheap.
This was impossible to obtain, so I got the best for the purpose - Nalbantov N-Drive 1000-FE5.

Techics E18L Problem with pedals

I have a Technics PCM E18L Organ which has been working well for years.
However, it was recently moved from one room to another and now the pedals are inoperative.
There is a scart lead running from the top to the bottom - checked that and it seems ok.

Re: guitar strumming sound

Hi Mike, thanks for your reply. Thinking about it you can in theory do the same thing using step mode in the KN6500/7000 or any KN composer as it has up to 1/96 resolution, I will have to give it a try and see what results I can get, most keyboard players…
