Hi folks ? probably not relevant in this group, but I’m doing a gig tomorrow with my Montage 8, Kronos 2 88 and also my trusty Motif ES7, it’s got synth action keys before anyone asks me why ?

I’m noticing on the Motif, it’s so much quieter in volume than my other 2 boards, even when all keyboards volume are set between 1/2 and 3/4, some of my combi and performance patches are set around 75 to 85, but the Motif has to be up to 115 or even max volume of 127! at home on my mixer on the channel my Motif is plugged into, I’ve had to hit +4 to give it more volume…. Is it because the Motif is like 17 years old and the other boards are much newer, or is my Motif knackered? I’ve no issues with it… no crackling outputs etc…? EQ is the same on each keyboard..
