Re: SEQ to composer copy

Hi John. Yes there is both floppy disks that enable style convert from other manufacturers keyboard models and of course EMC software. The latter software did simplify converting midi files with varying degrees of success dependant on the quality of the m…

Re: SEQ to composer copy

Roger, update re the Seq to Composer, to my surprise having owned a KN3000 for some years I had not even noticed that this feature was there in those days. I was aware it was in the KN6000 although there was an extra piece of software which could be used …

Re: SEQ to composer copy

Hi Roger, the Sequencer to Composer that is built into the KN7000 is not the easiest feature on the KN7, Klaus included the same feature in the Style Works Program.this does the same thing but it is a lot easier because you have a total overview on the co…

Re: SX PX73M Missing Cables

Hi, And welcome to the site. I may have some news for you. I am part of the Admin team and I have been talking to my engineer friend who has a prototype as these cables tend to get damaged either when the Piano is moved or stripped down for storage. I not…

SEQ to composer copy

Someone mentioned recently that 'SEQ to Composer Copy' was a great way to make a style file out of a midi. Easy enough to find that facility on my KN7000. But looks a bit complicated after that...
Anyone got a simple set of instructions for using it?

Hello, and greetings from Canada!

I am looking for replacement cables for this very old digital piano. The sustain pedal no longer works. The back of the piano contains various outputs, pedal in, line in, line out, and midi.

Will I require more tha…

PX44 service manual

I recently purchased a second PX44 piano with all working keys in order to replace 1 key that has stopped working on my first piano.

Does anyone have the service manual as I'm too chicken to open them up without it?

Re: Technics kn6000 error problem

There is indeed a back up battery. It is a 1F 5v5 component and depending on if its been changed before it is either a coil shaped item that is soldered onto the main voice board standing upright, or since this particular design is less popular now it is …

Re: reset KN7000

It is ok now. I purchased another KN7000, to format diskettes en unpacked the 1.4 and 1.6 update diskettes in Windows 98 compatability mode. That did the trick.

So do not format in a Windows 10 machine and unpack in 98 compatability mode.

MIDI hanging notes problem

Whether I use my KN7000 into my Apple MacBook sequencer via USB directly from the keyboard or via an M-Audio USB to MIDI interface, I keep getting hanging notes which are only cleared when I play the same note again.
The keyboard plays perfectly correctl…

Re: SX-P50 Demo OK no keyboard notes

Hi Glen

Just goes to show my memory isn't what it used to be!

So that means that the address and all the interesting bits are on the main logic board. I must have been thinking of another similar keyboard!

I'll keep a look out for the manual too.…

Re: SX-P50 Demo OK no keyboard notes

Hi Dave, thanks for your inputs (and sorry for the delay in getting back).
The SX-P50 doesn't have any gate array logic on the KB pcbs, and doesn't have any display as such. The keyboard is a simple multiplexed setup with 74HC138s to do the bank decodin…

Re: Technis SX-EX70M double notes ?

From what I can tell this organ has the plug in boards the same as the U60, U55 range of organs. These sit in a card frame to the rear of the keyboards. As such it is highly unlikely that it is repairable. I have done any number of these in the past and a…

Re: Technis SX-EX70M double notes ?

I am afraid I can't tell as I am here in the UK and I have no idea on the charges in your country. I can however go through the circuit and see what might need changing and then give you some advice you might be able to forward onto any local engineer who…

Re: Technics U60

Hi there

I have some spare boards for the u60 range so it might be worth while trying a swap. I think I have a ptf board that I can send you if you want to try it. I'll dig it out of the workshop!

Re: Technis SX-EX70M double notes ?

I could speculate about this but I would think it needs an engineer to check it out. All these old organs have issues and they all need a few new bits to keep them working properly.

Re: Question about changing a GA3 to an F-100

The Technics from this range are all very similar. Lynne and I have spent quite a lot of time fixing them over the years. Lynne sells all makes of organs so we have an on going saga of these sort of things. Much of our time is spent reverse engineering an…

Re: Battery for the GA3

There are two batteries soldered to the main voice board on the GA3. This is a generic board that is very similar to others in the range but the power supply and the batteries are the same in all of the models from that range.

Re: Question about changing a GA3 to an F-100

Hi Dave,

That would be great! It is an interesting idea to get a compact F-100 (effectively). I just noticed that so much looked identical between the GA3, F-100 and G-100C that it made me wonder if Technics used the same (or virtually the same) insi…

Re: Technics kn6000 error problem

I have a feeling I am going to need a few more details as your description is a little to vague to provide much help!

Display messages?
Does it run and will it do demo mode?

Anything else you can give me would be helpful

Dave
