KBD5000 keyboard compatibility with DX Series Recorders or the DX Series Client software.


No. The only keyboard that is compatible with the DX Series Recorder is the KBD300A (version 5.0 or higher).

The DX8100 will require the KBDKIT

The DX4500/DX4600 or DX4700/DX4800(HD) will require the KBD300USBKIT

The DX4000 and DX4100 are not compatible with the KBD series
