Hi,
Is there a source of books on the kn3000?
Would a book on newer models (Kn7000) be helpful?
Thanks,
Steve

Hi Steveio,have you got the owners manual or are you working blind???. What type of things are you looking for??? your profile does not give your location as this will help a lot in telling us which direction to point you. Either post a reply or contact direct via my profile web details Regards JOHN.

Hi.

If you're missing the manual, I may be able to help you with
a pdf version.
I seem to remember I had a very useful "workshop" on video
when I was a happy KN3000 ovner/player, but I let it go with
the KN when I sold it.
I think I bought it at www.technote.com but they're probably
empty long time ago.

Happy Playing
GJ

Hi,Thanks for responding!
I'm from Reading,Pennsylvania,USA and yes I have the owners manual and the reference guide.I'm doing alright figuring this out but I have no formal music training and some things I just don't get like Composer Chord Map.
Also,I'm a guitar player with limited keyboard skill so I use a Roland GR1 midi guitar to control the Technics Auto Play Chord and other sounds.It works pretty good so far but somethmes hangs up on a wrong chord for several moments.I'm told a Midi fiter may fix that.So midi operation is another area I need help in.
There is a book "Getting the Most Out of Your KN7000" by Alex.Would it be relevant to the 3000? Is it still available?
Hows that?

Hi,

Even if there are many similiarities between Technics models, I'm not sure if
there is any much for you to use from Alec's book.
It's quite a gap between KN3 and KN7, but it's a great and helpful book, just
as the KN6 book was/are.
If Alec read this, he'll probably reply about it.

In the meantime, there are some technical stuff and info mainly regarding the
KN5000 at this webpage.
If you go to "Technical pages" there are several links, also i.e. to "Bob's How
To KN5000 Pages". You'll never know, maybe there aresome tips & trics to use.

Happy Playing and exploring.
GJ


Btw, I'm not sure, but maybe Walt Tenay have some books left in his stock, the
link are: http://www.wtenaykeyboardstudios.com and http://www.keynotepublications.com

Thank you, Steve. The grey matter doesn't work as well as it used to . . . I did that original web site about ten years ago.
