£88.00 to £155.00 ex VAT
£105.60 to £186.00 inc VAT


PLEASE NOTE: Installing a socket upgrade kit is a skilled job which should be undertaken only by a competent synth service engineer or installed by us at our premises in Tadworth, just outside London.

This socket upgrade kit is built to order after your payment has been processed. It then takes us up to 10 working days to build and test the kit before we can despatch it.


The above picture shows a typical Socket upgrade

This kit is also suitable for the CR-5000

This Socket upgrade adds a KADI port to the CR-8000 enabling the individual sounds of the 8000 to be played using the KADI port output of any Kenton device which is fitted with a KADI port. These devices are:
Pro-2000 if fitted with the optional KADI port

Eleven sounds can be played individually, with or without accent which is determined by a pre-set velocity level. You can chose at installation time exactly which 11 sounds you want to be able to play
While the KADI port is connected to a KADI device the sounds can only be played from MIDI. When the KADI cable is unplugged (or the KADI device is turned off) the CR-8000 will revert to normal operation. See the retrofit kit if you need more control.

The kit contains all necessary components and diagrams for connecting the wires / components, and mounting the 15 pin high density D socket.

Note 1): A KADI cable is not included, as this is supplied with the Pro-KADI or optional KADI add-on port for the Pro-2000 (although not with a Pro-4).

Note 2) This is a KADI Socket upgrade and is not what we call a retrofit. We do not currently produce a retrofit kit for this model.
