[Solved] Need help on PC3K8 with Setup mode  

Uptown funk Lister

Hello all,

I hope someone can help me with my issue. I've searching all day long in the manual, on the internet, on YT, there's nothing I could find to resolve my problem.

When I start a new setup with 2 zones, I only hear sound from zone 1 (French horn) and nothing from zone 2 (strings), both are default sounds from Program.  There are no pedals connected, it's only the K8 itself.  All values like output, status are for both zones the same.  Even the entry & exit volumes are set at 127 for both zones.  I thought that I had done something wrong until I checked the default setups from factory and even there I only hear the sound from zone 1, all other zones are muted.

So my question is, who can help me ?

Many thanks in advance,

...on Forte if the new zone is not added from soft buttons, than it is in a muted state and no sounds from that zone, and has to be unmuted... not sure if this is the same on pc3k..


All the best!

Hi zoleeon

Thanks for your reply.  Recently I resolved my issue.  First I upgraded the firmware (I was one version behind) and after the upgrade I did a factory reset.  After these I restarted the PC3K8 and I tried the default factory "split" sounds (zones) and those were alive.  I would know if I could create my own zones and all went great.  Now I have it all and I can continue learning more and more.  It's an amazing "machine" which I would never miss next to my Hammond.  These two is my best configuration I've ever had.

Thanks again for your reply and best regards.
