MSG, I'm hoping maybe you can share some of your vast knowledge in regards to this, I have a dead key on my Korg and it's such a nice little keyboard that I really want it to work.

Are dead keys usually a big deal or do you think a couple turns of the screw and common sense may revive this key?
It looks as if maybe it was just struck too hard in the passion of a performance, possibly dust, not really sure.
any help would be awesome
Joel

When you say dead key I'm assuming when you press it nothing happens versus a key that sticks down. Most modern synths with velocity sensing have a dedicated rack of switch contacts. I seriously doubt any cleaning , air blasting , screwdrivers , etc. will fix it. My grandaughters Yamaha PSR gave up the whole keyboaed a while back and I had no luck determining the cause much less fixing it. Everything I checked was fine.

My guess ? A bad keyswitch board. You might give Korg tech support a whistle and see what they say.

oh wow, that's a p**ser..OK, thanks for that!
something tells me I may just have to live without that 1 key.
I suppose I could learn my parts in a different octave and then overdub the missing key later after I've played it in the proper octave, albeit missing one key until a future overdub, possibly an interesting experiment, providing I don't try to match the original sound.
that's only if the fix is more than a 30 dollar expense 8)

Most keyboards will allow the octaves to be moved up or down , that way you could "bypass" the bad one.

That's true. Nice call
It's just that I'm a self fulfilling screwball. I'm lazy in the way that I would be more likely to take a long way because I'm intimidated by browsing the edit banks. But now that you mention it, I've got to learn sometime.

Oh, I've actually got another question and since I feel like sharing it's a long one...

I took a year off of electric drums to focus on a real kit in my recordings, now that I've
Quote:
finally
got my real kit tuned and sharp for recording, I find it so much easier to monitor via playback with the Korg's internal producer kit patch.
Problem is, now that I've opted for a direct electric drum sound on my material, I'm noticing that my bass drum is considerably lower in volume than my snare(I play bass/snare on one track, metals and toms on the other).

There must be a way to internally mix each sound on the Korg to get the proper balance going in(AW16G), right?

You should be able to edit the volume of each patch in the patch edit menu. If the BD is turned all the way up , then turn the other parts down.

Another solution would be to make an e-drum submix and then bounce them to a stereo pair of tracks once done.
