Thank you ! Last night I had fun pretending to play an actual MS-20. The screen angle helps quite a bit to be more precise, including connecting wires on the MS-20 patch panel.

Wow! Shocked

I'm not even brave enough to add a second SSD myself! This is beyond my technical skills by light years.

Hi Sam and thank you for the comments. Adding a second SSB as a slave device is not very complicated on older Kronos models. On a Kronos 2, it is more difficult as you have to remove more things (front fender/bumper, then the action, then a protective metal plate). So if you have an older Kronos, that would be a nice first mod to do. Or a local electronics/computer tech could do it for you.

Tiny update on my mod, I've decided that along with the normal screen position that everyone has on their Kronos, I'll use only what I refer to as the "long stick" angle (expression often used for grand pianos). I thought a middle-way "short stick" could be useful, but I don't see any purpose now as the high or "screen in my face" angle is just perfect for me. So for concerts and playing standing up = normal position and for playing sitting down or working extensively on sounds/sampling = high stick angle, which is about 45 degrees from a floor/horizontal plane (or in other words a bit less compared to the Kronos panel).

Since there is no room to install a laptop-type variable tilt hinge on the Kronos without compromising the original look (which for me was very important to keep), the only way to have the screen at a given angle is to install little foldaway sticks which hide under the extremely cramped space under the LCD. Every square millimeter under there is counted, so much that even the "short stick" could not fit under there permanently like the two longer ones for high position (which are attached to the Kronos metal), so it had to be kept aside.

So by eliminating the need for a midway angle, this little problem of having to keep a separate part for this is solved and makes more sense. Cop

Hi 1002 and thank you for your nice comments. Since I've done this mod, I have to admit I like my Kronos even more.

Found the answer for the knobs near the joystick in his vimeo channel: https://vimeo.com/260649165
Aftertouch sensitivity / response curve.

Thank you narf and Drummond !

Yes, the little pot and button in the main joystick section are part of a previous mod to optimize the aftertouch (AT) response. To initiate/start the AT on the 88-key models, it can take quite a bit of pressure so by adding a simple circuit to the existing op-amp one dedicated to AT, the threshold can be reached more easily and the whole AT becomes more responsive.

So does this logically suggest you could do a video out ?
to a touchscreen tablet or ...?
