You are able to change the screen to show information that suits you. You can redesign the "Homepage", that is the screen that the Technics KN6000 defaults to. Keep it simple or have as much information as you like before you.

The registration memories (Panel Memories) allow you to save you sounds together with a rhythm to suiit a particular tune, this is a custom section. Other examples are Sound Memory, Custom Styles, the Sequencer, Manual Sequence Pads. In addition to these the Technics KN6000 keyboard allows us to customise the Display, the Music Style Arranger. All the "Custom" sections are stored in "Flash ROM", or in laymans terms, you don't lose your settings when you turn the instrument off.
