The KN2000 will astound you with amazingly real sound that's rich with emotion and detail, thanks to its powerful sound engine and Dynamic PCM sound source.

Dynamic PCM Sound Source

Each instrument sound has been carefully sampled. As a result, more of the dynamics and performance characteristics of the instruments are captured, including the player's natural vibrato so beautifully demonstrated in the sounds.

Re: Replace floppy drive with USB Emulator

Most of these usb emulators don't work with 720k drive interfaces as these are very different to the 1.44 ones. If your keyboard has a standard 1.44mb floppy interface then there is no reason why you can't fit a standard floppy drive or a usb interface ho…

Re: PR902 issues

Hi Mike,

It seems that it's an IC issue on the main voice board and likely to be unrepairable. Would you know if it's likely to ever find a replacement board? Oh, I meant to say, it's a 900 not a 902.

Thanks, Malcolm

Re: KN3500HD

Hi Robby,

I'm not familiar with the operation of the KN3500HD. Possibly you can get similar information in the KN5000 Hard Drive Manual. You will find that in the Members Area on the KN5000 page.

Best wishes,
Mike

Re: Replacement LCD screen for KN2000

Hi Jose,

I don't have the technical knowledge to help you with this but it sounds to me as though you have reconnected the backlight but not the LCD screen. Or maybe there is a loose connection.

Re: Download styles from this site to KN 920

Hi Jan,

You can manipulate some Yamaha styles that way but not all of them and you will lose some data.

Technics Styles are entirely different. Here is the relevant information:

Hello Jan,

I don't completely understand your question. Please write it a different way and Google Translate will try again. Write in your own language. I will use Google Translate here.

Make styles on the keyboard. Use the keyboard to make them.

Re: Download styles from this site to KN 920

Hi Everyone,

To let you know that we resolved this by email.

On KN920, you have to set the Expand Mode on Page 83 of the manual and then use the Load method on Page 88.

This probably applies to KN1500, KN920, KN930 and KN720.

Best wishes,
