Used Technics SX KN6500 Workstation Keyboard


The Technics SX KN6500 workstation keyboard is equipped with really great-sounding built-in speakers, a large display panel (with adjustable angle and contrast) and a 3.5-inch disk drive that makes loading and saving your inspirations a snap.

The 61-note touch-sensitive keyboard is non weighted, but does have after touch for adding modulation and other effects without losing a hand to the mod wheel.

Another nice touch for real-time tone variation is a small and somewhat overly sensitive “Sound Controller” trackball that can be assigned to modify filter settings, panning and other effects.

Global effects such as reverb and chorus are easily switched on and off via the front panel.

Innovative Sounds on the Technics SX KN6500 Keyboard

The PCM sound source on the Technics SX KN6500 Keyboard puts a repertoire of over 1,000 carefully sampled sounds right at your fingertips. Dynamic PCM sampling helps express the fine details and nuances of individual instrument sounds so well that it is impossible to do it justice here. Whether you choose the Soloist Sounds, incredible vocals, exquisitely delicate guitar sounds or sensational new Brass samples, you’ll find that the KN6500s speaker system gives your music an expansive, beautifully defined stereo sound.

Rhythm Section

The KN6500s rhythm section provides a rich accompaniment with 880 pattern variations containing up to 8 parts each. These accompaniments are the result of extensive research & development by engineers and musicians to produce a rich musical backing arrangement from even the simplest of chord progressions. You can also create and store 20 of your own patterns in the custom rhythm group and use them just like preset rhythms, or load new patterns from optional music software on floppy disk.

You can also create your own styles using the Custom Stylist: it’s as easy as combining a composer pattern with a panel memory.

This function lets you personalise the LCDs home screen in much the same way that you’d customise the desktop of your computer-you can even add a picture. it also allows you to personalise and place your favourite sounds, rhythms, styles, and menu shortcuts into one of four “Favourites” pages for future recall.

Separate DSP Effects & Mixing

You can apply enhanced DSP Effects separately to Right 1, Right 2, Left and APC parts, as well as add global effects like Chorus and Reverb. The KN6500 is equipped with both a global sound equalizer and separate equalization functions for each part, so you can create studio-like re-mixes with excellent sound quality.

Real-Time Sound Controller
