Re: Sia - Cheap Thrills style

Here you go... will work in a KN5000; KN6000; and KN7000.
It's zipped by the way so will need to go through winzip to unzip it.

Horizontal line on screen!

Hi all, switched on my 6500 today (first time for about 5 weeks) and have noticed a horizontal line on the screen about halfway. Any ideas if this is likely to be a problem with the screen itself or something else?

Re: Repair /service manual.

Thanks very much Mike, nothing specific, just got an idea that I want to look into. Could you also tell me are the instrument sounds exactly the same on the 6000 as 6500.
For example if I were to use either as a midi instrument would they sound the same?

Unless you are trying to do something extremely specific to KN6500 the KN6000 Service Manual probably has anything you need. It's on the KN6000 page:

Re: Good Bagpipe sound required.

Hi Shezza,

KN6000 has bagpipes. Look under Reeds in the Sound Explorer. If the preset doesn't suit you it will be a good starting point for editing.

Hi Mike,

Re: Case for KN6000

Hi Paul, my apologies I didn't check out your country. I hope some others can give you advice but I'll keep an eye out too. No doubt those guys would ship to you though and it's a small world, shipping costs are getting very competitive. Regards, Mike

Best to take a look at the KN6000 Service Manual because I think that the body is the same as the KN6500. The manual seems to indicate that you need to take the keyboard apart to access the wiring.

A further point:

I would go from Sibelius to Cubase (MIDI). There, you will find that you have far better control over the expression (dynamic volume adjustments are easier in a DAW).

Then take it to KN6000, on floppy, as a MIDI file, import to the …

PS when you are on your LOAD screen (I'm assuming it is very similar to KN7000) notice that it tells you what type of file you have selected. Take a good look around the LOAD screen whilst you are there.
