Hi Jim,
Is there a handy piston shortcut layout for the 260?

Jim,

Thanks. But isn't this just for the 216. How about a similar chart for the 260SP

Hi,

I have now fitted a PC keyboard to my Technics in order to better control everything, in addition to being able to set the Miditzer pistons from the Technics tabs. However, in fumbling around trying to get used to this I seem to have hit a key on the keyboard which has resulted in all stops being set as OFF in the 260. When trying the various function keys on the keyboard, or the pistons on the Technics organ, I get the usual "tab noise" but none of the stops move and I have no sound. If I select the stops individually using the mouse/cursor there is no problem.

Any idea what stupid thing I have done? I must have hit a key by mistake on the PC keyboard. My wife (originally from Beijing) says I must be "Arr by woo" which apparently means a 'completely stupid and inept idiot' in Mandarin slang...

Thanks!

Check which memory level you are on. If you've moved to an empty combination memory, you won't get anything changing.

Click on the S1 level and you should be back to the default.

Barry, Graham,

Thanks for this. I'll try it later when I get home. I think I had a severe case of sausage fingers!

Best regards,

Hi guys,

Yes I had accidentally selected an empty combination set. I selected S1 and all was back to normal. Many thanks!

Are the piston controls the same for the style 150?
