Privia 560

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am a newbie to this form.

I am very interested in the PRIVIA 560, it looks like a very interesting keyboard with some very good features. 

Question, can I create my own drum patterns from scratch and save them to a new folder. I have  viewed a lot of Youtube videos and I'd like to see one on making my own bass and drum backing patterns and how they work.

Hi Frank and welcome to the forums. You can't create rhythms from scratch, but you can edit the presets and save them as a user rhythm.

Hi Scott and Frank! I'm also a newbie to the 560. Is there anywhere I can find better drum patterns, (eg the "big band" drum pattern is pretty ordinary, as are a few of the others, I have to manually speed the up to a proper rhythm live! 

Also, I use midi files via USB and save them to the Kb with my alterations. Where would you suggest I look for good midis for this Kb. Some I bought from band tray, some from hit trax etc...and I have converted them. Some work well but I am not a programmer, so when them drum sounds a bit "cardboardy", I have no idea how you change it,

LOVE the Kb love the weighted keys and all the stuff it does etc..,these maybe just tweaks.

i turned off the speakers so I can at least give it more guts through my PA.


sorry about all the questions.

cheers from over the pond!
