Cory - In response to the battery issue (if you haven't already resolved it), it requires a 3.6V NiCD 3/V60R. The factory batter is made by Varta.

I believe it needs to be soldered in...

Hope that helps.

The C8's massiveness is its greatest strength AND weakness. As long as you've got a good stand, you can pound rockabilly etc. on this, and it won't budge or creep away from you as some boards will do. But the thing is so big, it requires a custom case, and if you don't have a van or pickup, you'll think twice before gigging with it. I HAVE gotten it into the passenger compartment of a Chevy Impala, but I wouldn't want to do it often. (The trunk was full, but I'm not even sure if it would have fit into the pass-thru where you flop down the rear seat.

Interface is not the most intuitive--especially for program changes--but it's pretty simple once you've learned your way around. I think I recall that you can get the OS updated to include the ability to play SMFs, but I'm not sure who does it. If I were gigging with it, that would be a big plus.

The keyboard action is definitely the best around. But my bet is that all these guys rating it a 5 are basing that on the keyboard action and that it rarely leaves their studio.

Hello. I wanted to get some help for those of you are currently using the Peavey DPM C8. When I turned it on it says,"The C8 Has Just Left The Building." Am I going to need to put in another internal battery? And if so, what kind?

I love the keyboard and being a pianist, I love the feel and the weight of the keys. Has a nice touch.

Thanks a lot!

I have recently purchased a Peavey DPMC8 that is in great shape, but the touch on the keys are terrible. Does anyone know if this controller can be adjusted so that the response improves? All the information that I have read describes this controller as one that players love. Any comments would be most appreciated.

I have used this beauty four several years and love it. I recommend getting one and keeping it. If you need a more portable unit go for the newer version. In studio or at home this is the best action I have been able to find. I play daily and can tell you this is the best feel for those of us who also play acoustic pianos.
