Hi Everyone,

This may be a dumb question but is it possible to swap the keybed on the Kingkorg for another synth with better keys.

I really like the Dave smith synths keybeds. Could I possibly swap with one of these? or even another high end korg model?

Or am I just kind of stuck with it. I have replaced keys on a synth before but only just one or two. never a full set. Has anyone on the forum done this before?

If I was to hazard a guess, I'd say it might be able to be done but it would be a LOT of work. For a non weighted action, I've always loved the feel of my Korg Wavestation EX. The thing is though, I seriously doubt that the connectors would be the same. Not to mention the frame that it mounts onto.
I think you'd have to be pretty handy with metal work and electronic work.

Rather than go through the BS of trying replace the entire keybed, you might be better served using another board as a midi controller and the KK as a sound module?
