Re: MIDI files into Sibelius 7

Very best of luck with Sibelius! This program is a work of genius, especially if you are theory literate...
Thank you again.
See you soon.

Re: MIDI files into Sibelius 7

Sounds like a good plan rosi. In the meantime I'll download a demo of Sibelius and see what I can find out smiling

Re: MIDI files into Sibelius 7

Hi MIke, this is a reply to all of your last 3 posts: deadline - end of March'15; 1st link you sent - awesome, I had been looking for this kind of tutorials for ages and all I had found was the PDF you'd send me last.

Hi, I wish I could help but I do

Hi, I wish I could help but I don't have the PX7 manual as of yet. I'll certainly have the service manual later in the year but for the user manual we'll have to hope that a member might scan it or send it to me for scanning. Any takers PX7 owners?

Hi, Mike,
I need a user manual and a service manual for a PX7 keyboard. I see mention of PX7 manuals, but can't seem to download any. Can you help, please?

Re: MIDI files into Sibelius 7

I'm not very familiar with Sibelius. You're going to need to get the keyboard talking to it properly. You'll probably need to load the KN6000.ins file into Sibelius (the file is in the member's area) so that it knows what key is what drum. For drums you s…

Re: MIDI files into Sibelius 7

Are you trying to use built-in drum patterns from the keyboard or are you playing a drum kit sound (with your fingers)?

Re: MIDI files into Sibelius 7

I know very well what you are saying. I do. The only reason I wanted to do it Keyboard-Sibelius rather the the opposite was because I struggle with notating drums and I thought playing the drums part on the keyboard will do the job. However, when I play t…

Re: MIDI files into Sibelius 7

Hi rosi,

Thank goodness it was only the switch! lol

I wrote you a massively long response but I had a crash here and lost it, so here goes with a shorter one but containing the same info.

You should treat these as separate projects. If I were in …

MIDI files into Sibelius 7

Here is a long post from a dummy...
I have to submit my portfolio of original works on audio and notated. I have my Technics KN6000 and Sibelius 7. BOTH – the Sibelius and Sequencer are new to me. I started with notating in Sibelius and even though it…

Re: floppy drive kn800

Actually, the KN800 is a good keyboard but if you want to work with styles and other files on floppy disk I would highly recommend that you buy a slightly newer keyboard. They are not expensive and it would probably cost you less than an emulator or flopp…

Re: floppy drive kn800

No problem wimhel.

The FY-D20 is the standard drive in many Technics keyboards so a good way to get one is to buy a broken keyboard.

The emulators can be quite complicated to get working. If you are interested in this there are a few Youtube videos …

Re: floppy drive kn800

hi wimhel,

We need a bit more information from you really but I'll tell you what I know:

You can't build an ordinary computer floppy drive into the KN800.

The floppy drive was optional on KN800 so maybe you have one or maybe not.

If your KN800…
