It’s amazing what a few loud voices can do. Of course Technics has to take the responsibility in the end. Since they have perfected the art of “Bad Customer Relations”, they should have held up the release of the KN6000 until they had everything worked out. That all said, the KN6000 is a wonderful instrument. The selection of voices, the sound processing and the overall sound quality is outstanding.
I also play the KN5000 and must tell you that the Composer and the Sequencer on the 6000 are much more versatile and as a result slower to operate. In fact many of the procedures are different and that may be the reason for some of the complaints. With the latest software update, most of the problems have been corrected. It would have been nice to get some input from the company regarding the changes.
Here is the bottom line. I’ve recorder two CDs on the KN6000 without a single crash, bad chord or problem of any kind. Bring the masters to the engineers for duplication they could not believe the songs were produced solely on the keyboard without the use of a computer and outboard effects.
