Ease of Use

The Technics KN 1000 keyboard is easy to use. Besides, the user manual tells you how to use the various functions; the midi section in the manual could have been more comprehensive. The Patch editor is also very easy to use, just as in a synthesizer; you can easily tweak the various sounds.


It's a good keyboard for beginners to learn keyboards. It has all the required sounds and functions. If you are on a tight budget and do not mind buying a used keyboard, you can definitely consider the kn-1000.

Floppy drive
by: Tim


You'll have to check locally. It should be similar to a floppy drive on computer, but you need to be comfortable replacing it yourself.

Check with a local musical instrument shop, or you may even get in touch with a hardware engineer.
