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.
