Technics Instruments Information and Timeline

Power Cable for Technics Keyboard? Searching for a Technics Keyboard Manual? What year was your Technics Keyboard Released? Is your Technics instrument MIDI compatible? Look up information for your Technics in the table below.

Our timeline shows you the date your instrument was released along with other information such as whether it has velocity or aftertouch sensitivity, floppy drive and what type of power cable it requires.

This table is Work In Progress at present.

Key

  • A green tick means that the keyboard has this feature. In the case of manuals it means that the manual for your keyboard is available in our Members Area.
  • A red "X" means "Doesn't Exist" or "Doesn't Have This Feature" or "This model never had this type of manual".
  • A blank space means "We don't know yet, we're looking into it" or "We don't have this manual available yet".
  • Items in brackets were optional extras. E.g. (FY-FD3) illustrates an optional floppy drive that could be fitted.
  • User = User Manual available
  • Ref = Reference Guide available
  • Serv = Service Manual available
  • Vel = Velocity Sensitive Keyboard (usually known as Touch Sensitivity)
  • After = Has an Aftertouch keybed and responds to Aftertouch pressure following playing a key (NB. some instruments also respond to aftertouch over MIDI even if they don't have a physical aftertouch keybed).
  • MIDI - Lists the keyboard's MIDI compatibility (if any).
    • GM = General MIDI compatible (works between different manufacturers). Has 128 common instrument sounds 
    • GM2 = General MIDI 2 compatible (has extended features and additional instrument sounds, works between different manufacturers). Has 256 common instrument sounds plus user patches.
    • NX = GM2 plus Technics extended MIDI features. NX instruments support a highly-extended set of MIDI features and sounds whilst maintaining GM2 compatibility. When connected with other NX instruments they will also select an appropriate equivalent sound, if the selected sound is not available on the second instrument. NX supports well over 2000 instrument sounds plus user patches.
  • Floppy - Lists the type of floppy disks that the instrument can use. Includes the model of the floppy drive where known.
  • Memory - The type of memory card or hard drive that the instrument can use.
  • Power - The type of power cable (power cord) that the instrument requires.
  • Cost - Approximate cost when new.

NB - Type your model into the Search box to see results. E.g. "GX7" or "PR804" or "KN7000" etc.

arjam Hello Mike, i havej t;he technics kn 7000 keyboard , also the vArranger and the ketron sd 1000 connected with 2 usb cables. the vArrranger is showing that it is receiving chords and single notes from the kn 7000 but no sound is heard. see the photo I took to show Dan at vArranger.
it shows note off in every case it should show note on and notes off. please help .
Kind regards Arjam [email address removed]

admin Hi arjam, if vArranger is receiving notes then your KN7000 is set up correctly. The issue must be with the outgoing notes to the Ketron. Look into your midi settings in vArranger for the outgoing midi signals and make sure they are set to the Ketron. Of course, your audio outputs from the Ketron must be going to an amplifier, or routed into the KN7000 audio ports. Best wishes, Mike
