    Like PJ, just migrated from here in New Zealand and I have two KN5000 keyboards. One rather rough. Got it as a backup. The one I love playing has an extra hard drive. Super sounds but wish I had more time on it. So much to learn. Keep up the good work Mike. Super reading of all your creative work. Kevin.

    • Welcome to you both from the other hemisphere! My KN5000 has a hard drive too but I really haven’t had time to get to grips with it yet. It’s good to have a backup these days, everything seems to need a backup (even all these websites which is a pain) I hold my breath every time I turn on my KN7000. Not because I think it won’t start but because…[Read more]

    Migrated successfully & joined group. I have a KN5000. 2 of them actually. One is in pretty much perfect condition. Even have original VHS video & a few original floppy “style” discs.

    • I think the KN5000 is the ‘neatest’ keyboard they made. It is slick and has a compact body, I like the dark colour too. A fantastic sound system too. KN6000 and KN7000 are physical beasts in comparison. The additional features are nice to have but they aren’t must-haves. Strangely, I think that the KN5000 doesn’t look as impressive in photos as it…[Read more]

    • Interesting you say that 🙂 I would be interested in selling them both for the right price. If you know anyone, especially in SE Queensland Australia who might be interested I’d be all ears 🙂

    I made the migration. Current Technics instruments: KN1000, KN5000, EX-30

    • Snap. I have those three :))
      I enjoy tweedling away on EX30 but I miss touch sensitivity. What do you think?
      It is good as a midi controller to access ‘hammond-style’ sounds on the computer.

    I joined the group. I have KN1400 which is compatible with the 5000 series. Love my Technics keyboard.

    • Fabulous! Yes, that’s the idea. The Groups will list instruments that are compatible with each other and that will knock on to you being able to easily find downloads that are suitable for your keyboard (or other instrument). KN1400 is a brilliant keyboard!

    Basically, this is just a test posting at Mike’s request but also to say how much I appreciate all the hard work being done (and probably still to be done) in getting the new site up and running.

    I’ve not been playing my KN5000 much in the past few months due to problems with the screen and also a weird issue with the wrong pitch of accompanying…[Read more]

    • Hi gourockian! I had to spell that carefully, it doesn’t trip off the fingers easily, where does your username originate from? I remember you posting something about the pitch of variations, let’s see if we can get to the bottom of it. Let us know what the issues are again.

    • I grew up in a little town called Gourock, Scotland, although I was born next door in Greenock. I live now in Florida and am busy trying to get everything taken care of before a 3-week trip to Scotland so unfortunately, I won’t be able to go into all the details of my KN5000 woes just now. Hopefully, once I get back, I’ll be able to fill you…[Read more]
