I'm surprised to hear you refer to the "demise" of the UK organ trade. Organ are almost completely dead in the US, but I had always imagined the UK was the last holdout. I guess it's relative. In the US, it's 98% dead. …

Thank you, John. That sounds a bit scary. I googled "Mac driver floppy disc" and the results were overwhelmingly from various forums, people discussing how their Macs won't recognize this-or-that brand of floppy disc. I don't know if that's the nature …

This is probably a ridiculously naive question, but how do I get the downloaded styles CMP files from my Mac to my GA-1? The only floppy disc drive I have is the one built into the organ. Do CMP files transfer over MIDI? Or how do I do this?

Thanks,…

Re: Loading style disk on a KN6500

Ignore page 3 for the time being. Now on page 2 of the loading process make sure you say yes to all the options and therefore load everything that is available.

Re: Loading style disk on a KN6500

Hi again. I've never bothered with those gigastyles as they are almost certainly not song specific which is where I'm going.

Re: Loading style disk on a KN6500

There is a second page when you get to the final 'load' which determines what gets loaded and what doesn't. That is assuming that what you have on the floppy disk is more than just the rhythm.

PX201 hammers backside support

I have a piano PX201 that works nice so far except for a mechanical problem related to hammers.

Some of the keys when released produce a noisy metallic "tac" that I found most probably caused by the lead weight hitting the metal support. On the backsid…
