PLEASE NOTE: Fitting a socket upgrade kit is a skilled job which should be undertaken only by a competent synth service engineer or fitted by us at our premises in South West London.
Roland CR-8000 KADI Port Kit (for use with Pro-KADI)
This kit is also suitable for the CR-5000
This Socket upgrade adds a KADI port to the CR-8000 enabling the individual sounds of the 8000 to be played using the KADI port output of any Kenton device which is fitted with a KADI port. These devices are:
Pro-2000 if fitted with the optional KADI port
Eleven sounds can be played individually, with or without accent which is determined by a pre-set velocity level. You can chose at installation time exactly which 11 sounds you want to be able to play
While the KADI port is connected to a KADI device the sounds can only be played from MIDI. When the KADI cable is unplugged (or the KADI device is turned off) the CR-8000 will revert to normal operation. See the retrofit kit if you need more control.
The kit contains all necessary components and diagrams for connecting the wires / components, and mounting the 15 pin high density D socket.
Note 1): A KADI cable is not included, as this is supplied with the Pro-KADI or optional KADI add-on port for the Pro-2000 (although not with a Pro-4).
Note 2) This is a KADI Socket upgrade and is not what we call a retrofit. We do not currently produce a retrofit kit for this model.
