Re: SX KN 1500 MIDI ports Not working

Hey Romanos,

I own the sx-KN720 wich is of the same line as the KN1500. I personally didn't have problems connecting it to my PC (and I didn't need General MIDI mode) but one of the things I ran into early in my MIDI endeavors (so to say) was plugging …

Re: SX KN 1500 MIDI ports Not working

Hi AlexSealey,
Thanks in advance for your time.
As far for the Mac MIDI interface I can see that when I plug in the MIDI cable to the usb port of my MacBook it is highlighted, so the drivers of my MacBook are ok, also the led which is tagged as OUT o…

[SOLVED] No sound from LINE-OUT on SX-PX224

Hi,
I've bought a SX-PX224 keyboard from someone and am very happy with it but the LINE-OUT seems to produce no sound. The keyboard itself works fine, the 2 headset outputs work fine as well, but impossible to have any output from the LINE-OUT output. I …

Re: SX KN 1500 MIDI ports Not working

Hi there! I should be able to help you with this.

First of all I would try searching google for your USB MIDI interface. Usually Mac's have drivers built in but sometimes they will need extra drivers downloaded. Also, I have noticed any time I have use…

Re: SX KN 1500 MIDI ports Not working

Your questions aren't silly, it is not easy to understand how to set it up but then it is straightforward once you know how.

My son is the Mac expert I'll ask him to comment and I'll join in to help with the Technics side of the setup if necessary. I'm…

Re: SX KN 1500 MIDI ports Not working

Thank you very much for your fast reply. I have read the manual at page 111 but I don't understand what settings I should use in order to play the notes from the keyboard
and hear it from GarageBand. For example should I go to MIDI Presets and choose KN…

Re: SX KN 1500 MIDI ports Not working

Hi Romanos,

KN1500 definitely works as a good controller with Garageband. Refer to the midi settings at Page 111 of the user manual which you can download in the members area. You'll also need the reference guide, again in the members area.

Make sur…

Re: kn6500 panel memory disable

Hi Rayoc,

PRESS and HOLD the SET button.

You can then change the Panel Memory to NORMAL

Your rhythm and tempo will then stay the same when you swap panel memories.

Best wishes,
Mike

Re: SY 1010 Analog Synth

Unfortunately, historically, Technics disposed of almost all archives when they disbanded the electronic musical instruments division. It's rare to find good information about the sy-1010 but I'll keep looking for a manual. Hopefully, someone who owns one…

Re: Kn6000

Yes you can do that. Go into the digital drawbars and set them as you want. Go into SOUND EDIT. Press WRITE and save the Sound to a Memory. Hope that helps.

Kn6000

Does anyone know if it's possible to save individual draw-bar configurations on the k6000. I can't find anywhere in the handbook where this is mentioned but I feel sure that in such a comprehensive instrument such as this it must be possible.

KN700 power adapter

Hi folks,
I was recently given an SX KN700 keyboard and cannot figure out the power situation. I bought what I thought was the correct adapter but it didn't fit right. When I took a closer look into round hole, it appears that there is not a female conne…
