Hello,

For a few days I have an issue with an unintentional detune wich suddenly occurs. It always happens after using the joystick for a pitch bend during playing. After coming back to center, I'm playing some notes, without any bend, and suddenly the tune increase of some semitones. What I have to do then is moving a bit the joystick and Kronos is coming back to the right tune.

I know someone has done a video about replacing the joystick. But, at first, I would like you to tell me if someome have got this kind of problem and how you solved it.

Thanks a lot

Hi Liviou2004,

This sounds exactly like the problem I had with my Kronos a while back. It sounded fine up until I started using the joystick, after that it would tend to detune a bit over time. And then, I could usually nudge the joystick a bit to make it get back in tune again. Also fine with SGX-1 and CX-3 because those don't support pitch.

Problem in my case was that the joystick is broken..

I took mine to the shop to get it repaired, as I don't have the right skills to open it up and replace it. Got it fixed before Christmas and the problem has been gone ever since.

Yup. Bad joystick. Mine did the same thing a couple of years ago. Replaced it, been fine ever since. If you're tech savvy, its not too bad to replace. Ordered mine from here
