    I was in a pawn shop and picked this up thinking I could generate some soundtracts for some videos. So, I got this. The problem is...I don't know how to use it. I can't find an actual name or model number on it to google any info. There are so many of these units in my search but I can't find this one. I was hoping to find a manual or at least some instruction to get me started. I'm sure it just a generic piece of crap. It has a mike input and a speaker output although it has its own speakers. That's it. Not sure how to get the tracks on a computer. Any help would be appreciated. It was only $35 so I took a chance. Even if I could find a generic manual to learn how to use this thing. It's about 3 feet long. ...12 inches back. It's in very good shape. I even took the protective plastic off of the led screen. 20160131_100910.jpg

    Looks like you will have another hobby to learn. :)

    If you have a Mac just use Garage Band.

    Try looking for a model number (probably on a sticker) underneath and google it.

    I dont want to learn how to make music really. I have too many other hobbies. I know these things can generate beats and rhythm tracks. I just thought it would be cool to use that at times when doing a flying video. No copyright issues either.

    I have looked all over this thing. In the battery compartment, moulded into the plastic....nothing. All it says in Made in China. The only info is on the front and that hasnt helped at all.

    I play a Yamaha Motif XF8, which is quite a bit more involved than that, unit. ;-)
    My suggestion, if searching online had failed, that you take it to an actual keyboard music store, they will likely be able to give you some worthy assistance.

    Have fun, writing, composing and recording...
