KN7000 Free Sounds downloads: Technics Expansion Board EW04NX for KN7000, KN6000 and KN6500. SY-EW04 "Super Sound Selection" Broadens the acoustic and traditional sound possibilities of your KN7000/6500/6000 keyboard. Extensive range of Vocal, Guitar, and Sax tones.

Technics EW04NX Super Sound Selection board

ew04nx_200x174.jpgFREE Sounds from the Super Sound Selection Expansion Board

The Super Sound Selection board is a very convenient way of accessing new sounds on your keyboard. However, these sounds can be loaded into your sound Memory group if you don't own the expansion card.

The Super Sound Selection board has 186 Sounds. The TM files contain these sounds for loading into your KN7000, KN2600 or KN2400 in groups of 40. They load in to the Memory Sound Group.

The "Super Sound Selection" (model SY-EW04NX) offers 186 sounds, including a variety of instruments, solo voices and vocal patterns. Technics' standard of quality and innovation is exemplified in these brilliant samples, which recreate the expressiveness of the studio musician and vocalist. This selection also features a compendium of other exciting, unique sounds: instruments ranging from rock guitar, acoustic harp, jazz sax, a variety of percussion sounds, and much more; plus dynamic effects to broaden the scope of any performance.

This has been the most difficult of the boards to convert and we will be improving the files in due course (but this will be several months away). A few of the instruments do not produce any sound yet (about seven or eight). So "186" is theoretical at present!

A Massive Thank You to John Dawson and Bob Johnson for their work on these Sounds!

Don't forget to send us your feedback using the Contact page or the comments box below. If you are enjoying these 186 FREE sounds we'll continue the series with more Sounds.

NAM Great sounds Mike!
I noticed that the most voice sounds are not avalable on the whole keyboard, only on about 2,5 octaves. No problem but I only wonder why that is.

admin Hi Bert,
There ARE some issues with these sounds that we haven't completely dealt with yet. However, the strange thing is that the first time I loaded them I had issues with some of them the same as you. The second time I loaded them 95% of the sounds worked for the entire length of the keyboard. Thereafter, the same 95% have worked across he entire keyboard. I have some theories why this is happening but it's difficult to explain without illustrations, I will post an article when I have time but to explain briefly, the cards contain Tones and when we save to Memory, the keyboard knows that the Tone is on the card. When you load the Sound on a keyboard that doesn't have a card the KN7000 attempts to substitute one of the onboard Tones for any missing ones. It is not always successful. For now you can try two things. Firstly, try reloading them and see whether they work better for you the second time, or third time. Secondly, try each Sound out in order. Start with the first sound on Page 1 and try them consecutively without skipping around. If either of those improve matters for you please let me know.

NAM Hi Mike,
I tried your suggestions but no result. It seems to be normal as explained in the EW04NX review, item Vocal Patterns Group.
Posted on January 25, 2015 at 12:15 PM
admin Aha! Yes I get it now. The vocal patterns have a limited span on the original card, I had forgotten about that. When we first converted the board there were many sounds that had limited spans but the third (!) attempt was more successful. I extensively tested them but I have to admit that I spent the least time testing the vocal patterns because I can't think of much use for them. If anyone does use them to good effect please let me know, maybe you can send us a recording. The later sounds on the card have proven to be a problem, these are mainly synthesiser type sounds. I'll get to editing them someday but need a few hours collaboration with someone to do that because I don't own this card. Anyway, job done, you're not missing much thanks for getting back to me smiling

bufalo Hi Mike,
For some reason my KN6000 can't read the sounds from the super sounds EW04NX expansion board you converted or edited. Can You Help?
the display on my keyboard says that is for a different product
Thanks

admin Hi Bufalo

Unfortunately the expansion board Sounds are only compatible with KN7000, KN2600, KN2400 and possibly some PX Digital Ensembles (being tested at the moment).

This is the reason that we released Sounds Series 1 first, so that almost everyone got some Sounds rather than just KN7000 compatible keyboards.

We believe that it will be possible to make KN6000-specific versions that will be quite close to the originals but it will be quite a bit of work between me and volunteers. I'll be hoping to start the exercise with some KN6000 (and KN5000) owners starting in a few weeks time. Let me know if you're interested to join in.

Best wishes,
Mike

Daniel83 How is this possible without the samples from the expansion board? I owned all four boards, so I can't try out this soundfiles without removing the board from my KN7000. Maybe not the original quality of sounds because of the missing of expansion samples, but a good option for people who don't have the board.

admin Hi Daniel83,

The boards add wave Tones that aren't on the KN7000, so our conversions are not exactly the same as the boards but most of them are so close that it is very hard to tell the difference.

The Sounds on a KN7000 mostly comprise of several Tones mixed together. When you edit a Sound and save it in Memory, the KN7000 stores the information about the combined Tones. If you then load that file into a KN7000 that doesn't have the boards it will use a close substitute for many of the Tones and what you get is a good representation of the original. In some cases it fails in which case you either ignore it ad move on (as we have done due to time constraints) or you get into editing the Sound and substitute a Tone that you think is appropriate.

All of this is theory that we're exploring, it's not gospel and I'm also simplifying things.

It works best on KN7000 and it specifically works best with the first two boards because they pre-date the KN7000's manufacture, we believe that their Tones are already onboard.

To make conversions for the other keyboards is a challenge. For KN6000, we can physically put boards in the machine which hugely speeds up the process. We would then, in theory, substitute close-sounding Tones for any missing ones.

For KN5000 we would simply have to examine the Sounds (take photos of the edit screens) and they would have to be manually created. A big undertaking and I'm not expecting many volunteers.... but if they turn up I'll organise things and tell them how.

As I've stated before, I don't think that any of this goes to devalue the boards. I have two of the boards and would buy the other two given the chance. The boards are far more convenient, they integrate with the KN7000 interface and they sound superb.. But the Sounds we've released here are excellent fresh material for everyone, very, very close to the originals and great if you can't afford a board or more to the point you can't find one available.

For yourself, there is Sounds Series 1.This collection is not taken from the expansion boards so it will be new to you.

Good to hear from you!
Mike

Daniel83 Thank you for the fast reply!
I have all four boards and yes, they're rare. I'll recommend your great homepage and this free sound collection in a German technics music forum. When there is time, i'll try out the Sound Series 1 collection.

Regards

SRMurpy.030 Hi

I have just right clicked and saved as the ew03 and ew04 on to a 2GB integral sd card then put it into my kn7000 and it doesn't appear to be reading it. The save as function seemed to be very quick should this be the case and any help would be appreciated as to why this is not working. I have never tried adding anything into the memory before. I have ew01 and ew02 boards already installed into the organ though. Another thought could we save these files onto floppy disc as I use this facility for extra downloaded songs. Please help. Thank you

admin Hi SRMurphy,

Your query raises a lot of questions, I have to be brief in responding but if you need further advice please post in the KN7000 Forum, you'll find it on the Forums menu at the top of the site.

Firstly, KN7000 (and KN2600) work with 1Gb SD Cards (max size). Some 2Gb cards might work but the keyboards will only recognise them as 1Gb cards and might not recognise them at all.

Some of the files on our sites are available as Drag N Drop versions where I have prepared them to be simply dropped into the SD Card. That's not the case with these sounds (yet), so you need KN-SDExplorer which is a programme that puts Technics files onto an SD Card in the correct place and format for your KN7000 to read.

The Sound files (TM files) are very small, the transfer of them is very fast. They only pass data to the keyboard so that it knows how to mix the tones and the parameters applied to them, to create the Sound. When loaded, the Sounds are available in the Sound Memory.

The download files are also numbered and formatted in such a way that you can transfer them via floppy. Just drag and drop them onto your floppy and load them. Once loaded you can save them on SD Card via your KN7000. This is probably the easiest way.

If you want to learn more so that you can easily transfer files then you should read the following sections of the website and watch the videos on the Help Menu. The videos are not great but you can expand them to full screen and get the idea. I'll re-make them when I get chance.
