I assume they are sequencer files Dave? KN6000 should load the Style files (CMP) from KN1200 but occasionally we need to load and save in KN3000 as an interim step.
I’ve never tried the interim step with sequencer files. I’m completely guessing but I think it should work if we step it up through KN3000 or possible KN5000.
You could try opening just the CMP files (go to Page 2 of the Load screen in KN6000). That would give you a start by bringing the patterns through. You should theoretically then be able to export from the sequencer to midi files in KN1200 and load the midi into KN6000.
That’s if you still have your KN1200 of course!
I’ll be able to help you with this in about a month. Most of my keyboards are in storage at the moment because I’m rebuilding my kitchen (I had a flood).
I’m hoping that a KN3000 owner might offer to give this a shot with you by trying to load the files and save them in KN3000 format. Generally, KN3000 gives us the strongest compatibility when converting to any other model. That’s the case whether we’re going up or down the range of keyboards.
Despite what I said above, if you upload one of your arrangements here I’ll see what I can do with my PC software. It will also let KN3000 owners try. If you still have KN1200 upload a midi export of the same arrangement too.
Zipped files should upload fine. Use the “Select File” button under the reply. If you have issues uploading let me know because I might have to allow permissions for other file types to be uploaded in the website settings.
