Help Please

If you want to help (thank you!) please use the Forums, ask questions and chat about anything. This sounds like a small thing but the Forums and Groups link everything together on all the other pages of the site. They link your membership to your instrument. Using the Forums & Groups and revising things in Your Profile really helps me!

This Website

The site you’re on now is a stepping stone towards the launch of our new Community Network for Technics Instruments enthusiasts. To migrate 11,000 Members was always going to be a challenge (little did I realise how much of a mountain I had to climb) and you’ll be able to read more about that in my Blog soon if you’re interested in that side of things.

This site lets me move your Membership to the new network of sites and retain your access to all the great Technics Styles and other content on the existing legacy sites at the same time.

This page is to let you know the current status and how to make the best of the websites while I organise the transition here from our Legacy Network.

Below I will add steps for you to follow and links to the sites available right now, with descriptions of what they do and links to visit them.

Existing Members: You’ll be able to access downloads in both the new and old sites immediately. Many more coming in the new site asap.

New Members: You can now enable your link to the legacy sites automatically. Click Here or the ‘Maintain You Legacy Connection’ button on the Home Page.

New Members

Introduce yourself in the General Chat Forum. Tell us a little about yourself, we want to meet you!

This is also a measure to reduce problem signups, we will deactivate silent accounts.

Step 01

When you have successfully logged in please go to the Forums and post a message so that I know you have migrated-in without issues. If your post is not visible immediately do not worry. Sometimes posts go into ‘pending’ because the website system is super security-conscious and I’m using the new posts to adjust the settings. I will see your post and make it visible within 24 hours or so.

Step 02

Our Groups are arranged in Families of Keyboards. Go to the Groups page and join the appropriate Group for your instrument model (you can join more than one if you like). This is going to filter the downloads that are suitable for your model in due course so it will help you to get the correct files.

Go to the Groups – Click Here

Step 03

Logging in and Navigating between Websites.

I’ve now programmed-in a Login and Logout link in the top-right menu. It’s similar to the legacy sites so should feel familiar!

‘The Circle’ at the top left of the site. This opens the side menu where you can navigate between websites. If you have retained the same password then moving between the sites should be easy for you. You can reset your password at any time using the Login link (You have to Log Out to see the Login link!).

Look for ‘The Circle’ button on the top left. Clicking on it shows the list of current websites (which will change).

Step 04

Well, Step 04 is mostly down to me!

I have to enable the downloads, migrate more pages and finish editing them. ‘Turn on the gas’, to speed the server up (it’s in a slow mode for development at the moment. And ensure that your accounts all migrate across smoothly (thanks for being patient recently!). One of the primary things I want to do is to link your accounts with the models of keyboards you own. That information is not coming across from the old sites very easily, I might need your assistance.

But please, chat in the forums, ask questions and have a look around. Any problems, let me know. The Forums will have the ability to accept music files soon and plenty of other fancy things, such as having your own pages to add photos, music, sequencer files, videos etc. In the meantime, have fun!

  • Hi Simon,

    That is great to hear! I get very low latency too. Mine also worked straight out of the box as well as when I updated the drivers (Windows XP through to Windows 10 as well as on my son’s Apple Macs).

    It is quite remarkable that I haven’t been able to find another interface that is reliable. Over the years I’ve unfortunately had to tell…[Read more]

  • Hi Mike

    I received the new MIDI-interface (Roland UM-One MK2) this week and just gave it a first try. I works directly out of the box! Simply plugged the USB into my laptop and MIDI OUT plug into MIDI OUT socket on keyboard. Then gave it a good old 3 minutes wait, it installs the drivers automatically (did a restart as well, but probably not…[Read more]

  • Hi Simon,

    It’s really pleasing that the shop was accommodating with you. Well worth leaving the link to them if they are that helpful. Has the new one arrived yet?

    I want to link up my keyboards and do some recording too but I’m flat out with work at the moment unfortunately. Roll on the holidays!

    Cheers,
    Mike
