Re: Performance Pads

Interesting question Susan. Firstly, if I understand your question correctly you want for example 'Birds tweeting' at the same time as 'bells ringing'...?

Performance Pads

Can anyone help me with Performance Pads Compile Bank and saving them. I only seem to be able to get one at a time from Bank A. I don't understand why there's not a separate menu for saving them.
Many thanks
Susan

Re: TECHNICS SX-KN7000

Looking at the positions of some of the controls I doubt that it has ever been used.

Re: Attn. KN6000 Owners Upgrade Problems !!!!!

Hi Mike:

If only I could get it working once! However, I will have another go later and see if I can identify exactly what my problem is. I'll also try the Atari forum again and see if I can drum up any support.

I prefer a music notation editor. I o…

Re: Attn. KN6000 Owners Upgrade Problems !!!!!

Mike,

In brief for now...

I'll take a look at your link on more depth soon.

I don't know much about Atari emulation but if you can get it working once then you would be able to export your sequences as midis, or send to your Technics and record (…

I've had a look at the other links you sent me. Unfortunately, excellent as I am sure they are, neither Falcosoft nor Varranger seem to serve the purpose I have in mind. I used Breakthru' for several (about 30) years and got very familiar with it. It serv…

Re: Attn. KN6000 Owners Upgrade Problems !!!!!

I'm taking a longer look at Midiworks PA+ but I notice the software is "dedicated for Korg PA series instruments" and I wonder if that would render it unsuitable for the Technics KN series. I'm trying to locate a demo video or some blurb - the download pa…

Re: Attn. KN6000 Owners Upgrade Problems !!!!!

Well.... you will find that you can run an Atari ST Emulator on PC and run Breakthru if you really like it!

However, it was a slightly wild guess by me that Midiworks PA Plus would seem like an updated Atari ST sequencer to you, sufficiently close for …

Thanks, Mike, for the links. I shall follow them up when I get back home this evening. Just to re-iterate what I'm seeking, I'm looking for a replacement for a Gajits software package called "Breakthru". It's a sequencer designed to run on the Atari ST an…

Hi Both,

Hi Mike,

Our dear friend John is very ill at the moment so he can't answer.

Howard's technician friend would have bought the disks from Technics many years ago. It is extremely, extremely doubtful that Panasonic would supply them now.

Re: Attn. KN6000 Owners Upgrade Problems !!!!!

I think I've come to this discussion a touch late. I own KN6500, so I'm not sure if the issue is relevant to me. What, precisely, does the upgrade do - in other words, how useful is it likely to be? My keyboard seems to be working fine and my general att…

Hi Bob,

Oh dear, did we cause Brexit by our woeful neglect of international music standards? Can't be, it hasn't happened yet.

But seriously, don't worry about it. I know exactly what it's like juggling work with other thin…

Re: Copy style from a song

Yes! I use the same software Roger but as you say it's not cheap.I didn't think to mention it.

Another method is to use one of the Yamaha tools that convert midi to Yamaha styles. If you convert for an older Yamaha model you can use the Technics Style …

I use a bit of software called Styleworks XT which makes this conversion - but it's not cheap to buy as you can imagine.

Re: Copy style from a song

Yes you can. This is a huge topic in itself and I'll need to write an article about it (after the new sites launch).

Refer to Page 120 in the manual to read the basics about doing this.

Best wishes,

The APP has two style suggestions for the song with Style Series, Disk No and tempo. I don't know the song so I'm not sure how sui…
