After a series of other brand name keyboards, I naturally evolved to the Technics brand because nothing else on the markey sounded as nice. It was the KN1500 that started me off, followed by the much improved KN6000, replaced by Technics for another KN6000. It is an amazing keyboard and still surprises me once in a while.
Colin Leaney, don't feel alone ....I got rid of all my KN1500 stuff because I was told it wouldn't convert over. I managed to get most of the commercial styles converted, but lost many recorded songs.
I would recover quite nicely if someone gave me a new KN7000!!
