My adjustment was auditory more than touch. Your digital has had all the little oddities in sound tweaked out. Modest pianos, especially uprights have little faults in response, tonal evenness and even little odd sounds that can't be (easily) re

A Xonar DG or Xonar DGX will do just fine, those have native Asio. Or use Asio4All without a soundcard.

Seems like a great deal if it's in that kind of condition. It was a Kawai upright in the 70's that got me started with the brand. Watch out for "boat disease!" (just two more feet and it'll be great!)
