The downloads below have two Panel Memories and include the registrations described in the article. KN7000 and KN6000 have been tested, earlier keyboards are untested. Please let us know how you get on by using the comments box at the end of the page.

Later keyboards should automatically engage their internal "Gospel 3/4" Style, however, the converted KN7000 Style will also be in Rhythm Composer A. Earlier keyboards and organs will access the Converted KN7000 Style in the Composer.
