"Why does my KN5000 keyboard sometimes get confused and play different accompaniment chords from those I play?
For example, if I play a C major chord I hear a G7 and the display shows G7 too. It happens after I load certain songs and goes back to normal if I initialize or switch off."
Answer: By John Shute
You may have loaded a song that was recorded using "one finger" auto play chord. Change "one finger" back to "fingered" or "pianist".
To do this, turn off Auto Play Chord then press and hold that button until the options appear on the screen.
Here's what was happening. In "one finger" mode if you play more than one note the highest note is taken as the root of a chord.
The one finger rules are:
-----press a key = that major chord is played
-----add any white key below = 7th chord
-----or add any black key below = minor chord
-----both white and black below = minor 7th chord
When you played CEG the highest note was G so you asked for a G chord. You added a white note below so you got G7. It doesn't matter that you added two white keys, C and E. Any one white key would have done the same. Even F or D would still have given you G7.
