Hanny, make sure you're selecting a Forum in the list on the left; it sounds as though you're leaving that selection box on the 'Choose a forum...' option, which of course won't find anything.

Apparently nothing has changed here. Can someone give me a tip on how to search for posts about the Korg R3?

Okay, I've officially given up on the search engine on this forum. \:\(

Here's the Google method:

Go to Google.com

Enter your search terms, in this case Korg R3.

Before you click on 'SEARCH', add the following:

site:forums.musicplayer.com

So, your search should read:

Korg R3 site:forums.musicplayer.com

Enjoy.

Help! For instructions of Roland RD-500/600/700 hammer repair/replacement I was referred to musicplayer.com:

"go to musicplayer.com, keyboard forum, do a search on rd700, you might find a very good post with several photos on how-to"

But the search function 4-month limit makes this almost impossible.

Suggestions for how to find this (apparently excellent) post?

Thanks!

I have been doing research on pc3, cp300, nord stage ex and nord electro 3 because I am going to spend some money this year on one of those. Alas, the "SEARCH" function does not work for me. How do I find out stuff on this forum? I hate those what kind of gear threads and refuse to start one, but the "SEARCH" does not work at all for me. Please advise.

Using GOOGLE - click "Advanced Search" and under "Search within a site or domain" type http://forums.musicplayer.com/ and run your search. It will only return results from the MusicPlayer forums.

IDK I've not really had that much difficulty searching for stuff but usually I'm not really being that specific either.

Thanks for the info on the search function. It worked fine for me. I got lots of helpful info without wasting anyone else's time. I am just getting into EPs so can learn a lot from prior posts.

Hi
I've posted this to the regular threads, but i thought somebody might help me out here, so here it is...
I'm searching for an older video in KM. All i remember is that there was this young guy, playing in an afro beat band in the USA. He was using Apple Mainstage and two keyboard controllers and he was basically talking about his mainstage/controllers set up on stage and some cool tricks about using this combi. I can't find the video in the Keyboard Magazine "videos" site .
Does anybody know how/where to find it?
thanx

Given the amount of new people who come here searching for info and unknowingly ask questions that have been asked and answered many times before, I thought that it'd be a good idea to give this post it's own thread:

A page will come up with a number of variables and search fields, which are all pretty self-explanatory. This is an ideal place to begin if you're arriving here with any questions like:

I am totally baffled by this search function. First, I don't see the menu that you have described, but perhaps the layout has changed since you wrote the post. So I just selected search and punched in what I was searching for, which is info on the Kurzweil PC3 Le7, and I used several different types of search terms, from just entering only the brand name (with no model) and every time, it told me there were no search results; that's strange b/c I've already read threads on that on this forum when I reached them before I signed up to the forum by searching in Google. I'm interested in comparisons between it and other models and other basic info about the programmability, or not, of sounds in it. Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards

Keyboard Noob, relatively speaking

To the people having trouble with the search function: It sucks. Don't use it. idea

Look back a few posts in the thread. There's instructions on how to search the forum using Google:

Quote:
Go to Google.com

Enter your search terms, in this case Korg R3.

Before you click on 'SEARCH', add the following:

site:forums.musicplayer.com

So, your search should read:

Korg R3 site:forums.musicplayer.com

There's a better way to search.

Go to google.com
Enter this into the search field without quotes: "site: www.whateverwebsite.com x y z" where x y and z are the search terms separated by a space.

So if I wanted to search the Keyboard Corner for anything related to the CP4 I would enter this into google:

"site: http://forums.musicplayer.com/ubbthreads.php/forums/18 cp4"

…without the quotes of course. That's an example of a search with only one term. If I wanted to include CP40 then it would return posts which include mentions of both CP4 and CP40, like this:

"site: http://forums.musicplayer.com/ubbthreads.php/forums/18 cp4 cp40"

Let's say there's a wacky Kawasaki keyboard that's called the CP4000000 and we want to exclude posts which mention that. Those posts would otherwise be included because CP4000000 begins with CP40. Use the minus key "-" before that term, like this:

"site: http://forums.musicplayer.com/ubbthreads.php/forums/18 cp4 cp40 -kawasaki"

or

"site: http://forums.musicplayer.com/ubbthreads.php/forums/18 cp4 cp40 -CP400000"

would also work.

Remember to leave off the quote marks in all the examples above.

Hope this helps somebody.

Where do I find the control for turning off email notifications of particular threads?

Every time someone posts in the Let's hear it!!! Post your music here! thread I get an email. I can't find how to shut it off.

Thanks!

Not sure, but I think that's controlled under the TOPIC OPTIONS menu, right up by the MANAGE TOPIC one. idk

Can search preferences be saved? For instance, I always find myself switching from the default of "1 week, newer" to "1 day, older" to begin looking back in time. Takes eight-ish mouse-clicks / keystrokes to do that.
