Audry,

No worries, Yamaha and Technics both have their own and different OS that can seem confusing if one is not accustomed to that OS. I agree owners manuals for both are often confusing. It's why Alec wrote a "How Do I Do That" book.

To each his own...

How was the Organ & Keyboard Cavalcade?

Although Panasonic/Technics no longer have a Musical Instrument section, it would be nice if, with all the talented people at their disposal they would commission someone to update their KN7000 USB drivers and original software to work within the Windows 7 x64 operating system.

After all their keyboards were built to last !!

Totally agree EMC did a lot of the work for Technics so perhaps they might help us if we could prove to them there is a need.

Many of us lament the passing of Technics musical instruments. I used to run a Technics Music Academy in the mid 90's.. My music room was stocked with KN501, 701, 901, 920, 1500, 3000 and a PR50. I really enjoyed teaching the kids and particluarly the older folks just starting out with a retirement hobby.

However, I did feel the 'sound' didn't progress much after the KN3000. Cartainly the screens did, but sound for me was quite similar from then on. I think my favourite instrument Technics ever made was the KN1000. I loved the punchy backing styles it had. In fact I may pick up one on ebay sometime just for the nostalgia value!

Having said all that, Technics are missed. R.I.P
