       Innovative Sounds The PCM sound source on the KN6500 puts a repertoire of over 1,000 carefully sampled sounds right at your fingertips. Dynamic PCM sampling helps express the fine details and nuances of individual instrument sounds so well that it is impossible to do it justice here. Whether you choose the Soloist Sounds, incredible vocals, exquisitely delicate guitar sounds or sensational new Brass samples, youll find that the KN6500s speaker system gives your music an expansive, beautifully defined stereo sound. Technics KN6500
       Rhythm Section The KN6500s rhythm section provides a rich accompaniment with 880 pattern variations containing up to 8 parts each. These accompaniments are the result of extensive research & development by engineers and musicians to produce a rich musical backing arrangement from even the simplest of chord progressions. You can also create and store 20 of your own patterns in the custom rhythm group and use them just like preset rhythms, or load new patterns from optional music software on floppy disk.  User -Friendly Display Large Color LCD Taking full advantage of all the KN6500s many functions is simple with its easy-to-read wide- screen color LCD.  Choose the Right Musical Style with Ease A Technics "Style" is the combination of an accompaniment pattern and a suitable registration. The Music Stylist search function makes it quick and easy to find the style you want from the 1,080 preset styles that are available. You can search by category, alphabetical order or musical era. You can also create your own styles using the Custom Stylist: its as easy as combining a composer pattern with a panel memory.
       Customize Function This function lets you personalize the LCDs home screen in much the same way that youd customize the desktop of your computer-you can even add a picture. it also allows you to personalize and place your favorite sounds, rhythms, styles, and menu shortcuts into one of four "Favorites" pages for future recall.    Separate DSP Effects & Mixing You can apply enhanced DSP Effects separately to Right 1, Right 2, Left and APC parts, as well as add global effects like Chorus and Reverb. The KN6500 is equipped with both a global sound equalizer and separate equalization functions for each part, so you can create studio-like re-mixes with excellent sound quality.
         Cool Features  
       Vocal Harmonizer Adds vocal harmonies to your voice that are matched to the APC chord or the chord track of SMF songs.  Real-Time Sound Controller The sound controller lets you modify sound filters, panning and other effects in real-time while you perform.  Brass Simulator The voice-driven DSP resonator produces outstanding brass sounds. Just hook up an optional microphone and you can "sing" your own great-sounding trumpet solo!

      Established in 1983 A&C Hamilton Musical Instruments maintains a healthy balance of traditional business values with a keen sense for new business ideas. Getting new customers and keeping existing customers are equally important to us. As the internet has changed all our lives we continue to grow from strength to strength applying the tried and trusted methods of traditional retail sales to this new world of internet sales and store sales. The world is a smaller place but we are all still individuals within it. It is so much more fun selling to some one you can have a chat with, either email phone or in the shop than just sending boxes via couriers. Our company has a solid financial basis to trade and all premises are owned in full by the directors.
