Hello,
I need some help to configure Kawai MP6. I hooked it up to my laptop computer with Ivory II products and it works perfectly but only on laptop's speakers... I would love to hear it through the piano {headphones or L/R output} otherwise I have to switch cables in my monitor speaker. I use Roland Cakewalk UM-1G MIDI cable, Windows 7 64 and Yamaha HS-50M speaker. Kawai MP6 firmware - 1.12.
Please help :-)
Romek

Hi Romek,

Some DPs feature 'Line In' or 'Stereo In' connectors, allowing an external audio source (such as a computer) to be mixed with the instrument's own sound.

However, I'm afraid the MP6 does not feature these connectors, therefore it will not be possible to hear the Ivory II sound when your headphones/speakers are connected to your MP6.

My recommendation would be to purchase a small external mixer, allowing you to connect both your computer and the MP6 to the speakers/headphones simultaneously.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
James

Hi James,
thank you for your reply. I have 4 line D-box and I will try to use it as a mixer :-). Anyway, MP6 is a great piano and Im very happy with it.

Thank you for your support!
All the best,
Romek
