Hi

Is there any possibility to load new styles/rhythms and especially Instruments onto my KN800 ??? I've got the version with a Memory-Card Slot and a Floppy Disk Drive.

Where can I download such files ?

Which function has the memory card ? Can I there store my settings or are there stored instruments,... originally ???

Thanxx for your answers !!!

Daniel

the kn800 is now 13 years old and I don't know if any sites still have styles available in a format that will load into it.

I converted mine years ago, because as you upgrade it pays to re-save the files in the next generation of keyboard, but this means that they will no longer load into the older original model you have changed from.

There were a series of style disks available, these had new patterns to load in, and some had the occasional sound edit, not a new sound, but the kind of edit you can do yourself by using the menus.

If you have a disk drive you can forget about the memory card, it just saved a setup like the 20 you can save yourself on a disk. There were no new instruments or anything like that on the memory card.

Hi

Thanks for your answers so far.
Just a question : Can the files be modified back for older models ? Can I modify some files of a newer keyboard for my KN800 ? (with which program ?)

I just looked over the postings and i think that here all my questions will be answered - i'm glad to have found such a board

Bye

Daniel

yes, with http://www.emc-software.de

but results will not be perfect due to limited tracks and polyphony, and the need for editing of a converted style. So you need to consider carefully whether this program will be worthwhile for you.

Just a little comment.
With EMC you can convert from KN800 and up,
but not further down than the KN1000 as far
as I know.

yes, you're right Gunnar, the spec says kn800, but only to load, not to save. It's so long ago that I used any kn800 files I'd forgotten all about it.

Daniel, I still have 8 discs bought 12 years ago, for KN800 with styles for specific songs and rhythms...(10 tracks on each disc) I have tried to ZIP them but they don't appear to be the correct format. If you e.mail me your postal address I will copy them and send them to you.
e.mail me at alan.maxey@btinternet.com

HI Daniel,
I have just now emailed you a zipped disk for your KN800. check your email and get back to me for more of the same, if it works out.
Best to you

This site sells style files for KN800's according to its web site details...
Hope this helps.
