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

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.

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…

Re: Mode Piano

Hi wlahmadi, if you press "Cancel" on the "Program Chord Computer" then select Piano, the entire keyboard will sound as a piano I trust that's what you're looking for. The manual is available in the members area. Best wishes, Mike
