Today for the first time ever after my Forte 7 booted and I changed to the piano patch and touched my volume foot pedal, it outputted a loud shrieking white noise. The noise stayed the same even with the volume turned down. All the controls including the patch chooser still operated,
after I rebooted keyboard came up and operated normally

I thought I had read about something like this. Has anyone else experienced this?

Can you make your thread title more specific? It might help others when they see it so they know it's not just one of the many other "keyboard sound" threads.

What did Kurzweil support say when you emailed them and asked them about this?

Try lowering the aux in volume to off. My Forte did a noise when it was on, related to how many fader LEDs were on.

The fc7 volume control triggered it , I had my ms500 turned down so when it happened it wasn’t so loud. The Yamaha piano sounded like a square wave over-driven synth
