My PR603 is alive again!

By |2020-06-10T03:36:52+01:00June 10th, 2020|Categories: Personal, Technics Instruments|

I've owned my SX-PR603 since 2000 and have just used it to practice music for church (which has a PR602) and for playing back midi files through the floppy drive or from my computer. After moving to Missouri in October of 2018, I didn't have time to play it much but it was working. Come Christmas, I moved it across the room to make way for the Christmas tree and it suddenly quit working with only the power LED coming on. I could not find anyone locally or even in the US to fix it but did find Mike Barden at [...]

Something Different

This is a first for me. Have been playing around with Midi for years since it cam out.  I now think I have found real way to use it for me.  Using my Technics KN7000 as the base keyboard.   I went Midi Out to Yamaha PSR S770 Midi In.  Split both keyboards to the same "F# 2" key.  Using Fingered Chords for both and compatible rhythm patterns I tried 'playing a song.  The song is "Satin Doll" by Duke Ellington.  Using both backgrounds together with fills and pattern changes I was amazed of how the blended to together so well.  [...]

RHYTHM After doing (Right 1), (Right 2), and (Left) into (Panel Memory 1), try doing the same thing for each (Rhythm Group).  That's right there are 15 (Rhythm Groups), excluding (Rhythm Group) (Memory).  1.  Pick a rhythm in each (Rhythm Group).   2.  Exclude (Rhythm Group) (Memory).   3.  Save to (Panel Memory 1) (Expand). Now when you recall (Panel Memory 1) for a song you have 17 (Right 1) registrations. 17 (Right 2) registrations, 17 (Left) registrations, and 15 (Ryhthms) at your disposal at any time during your playing.  This is impressive to be able 51 registrations and 15 rhythms [...]

Valentines is here and gone.  Now it is back to the grind of the new year.  It is a great time to play the KN7000.  What better way then to play "Alone Again (Naturally)".  Have heard it many times but have been able to relate to it in my later years.  Hope you like it!

The Vikings!

I had a comment on my You tube video, ”The Vikings” which I recorded on the GA3 a few years ago. It said *** ”Kirk Douglas 103 god rest his soul” *** I am sharing the video now as a tribute to Kirk Douglas who as indicated was 103 years old. I tried to get that long deep lonely sound of the horn and also the vocals later on similar to the original films music after about 12 minutes as the Longships return up the fiord. I first watched this film on TV with my Dad who would have been 102 [...]
