Roger I sat at my Kn7000 with a blank look where do I start. You were right, given a little time and it is coming back.

I have not played a Kn7000 for some time, the sound is very different. The newer keyboards have strength in the low area; the Kn7000 has clarity that is fantastic. I used a small woofer with my last Kn7000, it sounded good.

Technics has a good but gentle bass and drums, how are you handling that Roger? Im talking about contemporary music here.

Hi John,

I know you asked Roger but I happened to be awake (it's great having a holiday off work!).

In my opinion (and it answers your question I reckon) the absolute first place to start in setting up your KN7000 is the Equalizer (Page 163). This will deal with your overall mix preference and the bass sound you're discussing here.

The second place to go is the Expand Mode Filters (Page 67).

The Third place to go is the Custom Panel (Page 23). Keep working with this button until it has everything you like best saved in it. Don't be tempted to set it up as a simple piano, it's easy to get a piano. Save your favourite settings for absolutely everything in this button and thereafter use it as the basis for your future registrations. The Custom Panel does not get overwritten when you Load things.

I use my KN7000 through a Roland amp or a 5 speaker Home Theatre System that my son kindly got me for the purpose (it has a sub-woofer of course and can play CDs, you can pick them up for a song). You are also able to send different Parts to external speakers than through the KN7000's internal speakers should you wish (most people don't realise that so I keep mentioning it smile ).

Best wishes,
Mike

PS - The next place to go is the Panel Memory Banks BEYOND A, B and C. These very rarely get overwritten by anything you load, so you should store your favourite Panel Memories in them (and back them up now and then with a Backup Save). A normal Load only overwrites the first three Panel Memory Banks. A, B and C.
