Remapping Channels in the .Quad File


#1

I have been told that the Epson 9890 printer I have with one channel missing will not work without using the K2 curves. If this is true, what are the adaptations I need to make to get the printer to read a modified K2 curve for the 9880?

Thanks in advance.

Dear Jim. You actually just need “K6” curves as long as it’s not the K channel that is dead. (these K6 curves drop the Yellow channel which is shade 7). All the K6 curves are available with the most recent commented edition at https://piezography.com/downloads/piezography-community-edition

After installing, open the piezography manual and look for “advanced topics” for remapping advice. If it is not the Y channel that is dead you can simply put the ink that would normal go in the dead channel into the Y channel use re-map the K6 curves to print with the Y channel.
