Re: Accessing Voices via Midi

Hi Mike

I am using the KN6000 and in the sound explorer you will find all the info about voices in midi.
Using a DAW is the simplest way to send the info to your KN.
If you are looking for voices just look for a brand name en search for .i…

Re: Accessing Voices via Midi

I have now been shown the way to access the various voices on my KN6500 via STEEM and the good old sequencer "Breakthru". I made contact with a fellow Breakthru user on the Cakewalk forum and he got me completely sorted out - spending a lot of his time do…

Re: Accessing Voices via Midi

This is the reference guide that I've found - see picture attached - there are several pages on the subject of midi connections. If you think they would be helpful I can scan those pages and forward them to you.

Re: Accessing Voices via Midi

Hi Roger:

Not sure what you mean by the "Reference Guide" - I have the User Manual for my KN6500 and the section on Midi left me little the wiser on how to set it up. However, if the document you have is not the User Manual under a different title, it …

KN6500 and Midi

I am seeking a kind soul who will hold my hand while I make sure my keyboard is properly set up to use Midi. I think I've got it right but there are a couple of things making me doubt myself. Any help gratefully received.

Accessing Voices via Midi

I want to run my KN6500 through an external midi sequencer. This means I have to send program changes to tell the keyboard what voices to access for a particular part of the performance. Is there a list of the individual voices and the program number that…

Re: Connection with DAW software

There are other ways of connecting a KN to play MIDI, which came to my mind.

I have a Bluetooth MIDI in/out plug and if your Windows 10 is bluetooth enabled it will play directly from the PC.
This method also happily connects iPad/iPhone music apps t…

Re: Connection with DAW software

I’m not familiar with the 750 model but generally you would copy the .MID to a diskette and load it on the keyboard. In my model when you press DISK and select LOAD there is a choice of TECHNICS or SMF. When you select SMF all the .MID files that was co…

Trying to Buy Replacement Key for KN2000: key "B"

Re: PX-201 only outputs very quiet aux output - even after amp board replaced.

Hi Mandragara

I also have a PX201. It's possible your keyboard has inadvertently had the sound turned off and simply needs a function reset. Hold down the Mode Set key and notice which red lights come on.

Normally under TRANSPOSE the red light und…

Re: Registrations externes du KN2000 converties en KN7000

Translation:
Thank you very much for this information.
But I'm sure the conversion was already done for downloading it a few years ago. But I no longer know on which site!
Thanks again.

Merci beaucoup pour ce renseignement.
Mais je suis certain que la conversion a déjà été faite pour l'avoir téléchargée il y a quelques années. Mais je ne sais plus sur quel site !
Merci encore.
