Question about Korg SP-250

Open Question

When low C is played the metronome turns on. When the Ab below that is played the voicing suddenly changes from piano to organ. Tomorrow my husband, a former electronics technician will try Fred Yearian's suggestions (below). I'm REALLY hoping it works because I teach beginning piano students on this instrument. Very frustrating. It's not that old and has been well cared for. :( Does anyone have any other suggestions?

SOURCE: i have around $100 to spend on a used digital

You will likely have to double that budget to get anything decent... but look for a Yamaha in the PSR series (61 keys minimum). To get a full 88 key, you might have to be up in the $400 range for anything really decent.

I believe organ hasn't been played or even turned on in over 10 years. The top keyboard plays if I turn on a setting such as piano or trumpet however I can't just get the organ keys to play.


Since the organ has not been used for a long time, I suspect that there can be degradation of the electronics, specially with electrolytic capacitors. hence I request you to switch on the Organ continuously and allow it to warm up, it there is improvement , then it will be worth to remove the bottom panel and clean up the boards,dry the PCB with a hair dryer and reconnect the boards.
Hope this will help.

QS8 keyboard. Why is volume in organ mode much louder than piano mode when I switch between modes without touching volume slide?


On organ mode, in general, almost all brands of the modern keyboard, velocity setting is not enabled. Setting velocity is used to determine how much the level of the sound that follows how strongly you press the keys. It is really just to imitate the sound of vintage organs, which in the past, electronic organ technologi not use the velocity on the keys. So, how strong / slow we press the keys, the sound level will remain the same.
At the Piano mode,modern keyboard using setting velocity. This also to imitate an acoustic piano, which, if we press the keys slowly, the sound level will be slow as well, and vice versa.
So, in your case,at the same volume slider, try to play on the organ modes, note level. Moving to the piano mode and press the keys securely powered (full power). Then the sound level should be equal to the organ mode.
On modern keyboards, also included organ sound that added velocity setting. Usually found on the user bank.

Hello! I have the Kurzweil Mark Pro TWOi piano. Suddenly some keys make strange sounds through the speakers, like distrortion or noise. The speakers seem to be fine, because the demo songs play perfectly....


Try to re-initialize the unit(factory reset). If the keys are the problem then the rubber key contacts need to be cleaned or replaced. Contact a local service center for help.

How do i adjust the drum rhythm volume so it is louder than the tone settings


You ay have to edit a rhythm and save it as a "user defined rhythm". During editing the volume of each part can be defined with vol. level ranging from 0-127.

Please read the manual.
Metronome volume can be easily changed by just holding the metronome button.

Midi settings


You have to plug in the laptop sorry to say. Think of it as a piano that can be used as a midi controller.

My Privia PX-3 will run fine for about an hour. After that, for example, if I am playing a piano sound and want to switch to organ, I press the organ button and the LED shows that I have chosen the organ...


This problem is NOT DIY and will likely require a trip to the repair shop... One possibility is a static discharge... Try running it for hours with no clothes on that can produce a static buildup and see if it behaves. If so, take maeasures against static... no rubber soled shoes, no wool fabrics, gound yourself to something else before touching the unit...

Switch on e50 and sustain pedal not holding notes


I assume you are plugging this into a ROLAND brand product as the Roland sustain uses a normally CLOSED contact while MOST other brands use NORMALLY OPEN contacts.

The Roland synths now monitor the pedal as the power is turned on and supposedly decides which contact type is used.

Remember that for MANY voices, such as piano, notes are held longer BUT they do not continue indefinitely just like the sustain on a real piano works. On a real piano the dampers are lifted, but the strings eventually stop ringing due to the losses of energy in the strings.

Some voices will be held,such as organ tones.

I don't have enough information from your post regarding what voice you are having trouble with.

How to adjust the metronome on casio privia


You hold down the function key/button and then use the PIANO keys with the "tempo" shown above them.
In that section of the keyboard, the C# key raises the tempo and the C key lowers it. You can also use the numbered keys in that section to dial up a particular value. Hold function down and strike the numbers you want then release the function key/button

I don't believe there is an adjustment for loudness of the metronome other than the overall loudness of the piano..

Need to get instructions how to use the metronome


Check the manuals for the Eurogrand EG540/EG1040 (which are apparently similar but discontinued) at this site:http://behringer-en.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/behringer_en.cfg/php/enduser/std_alp.php?sm=2
