Hi guys.

I know you are probably wondering why I would wanna use the crappy built in speakers .

Thing is, I want to create a more realistic piano experience. When the built in speakers are on they give a haptic feedback(vibration) making the whole experience much better. Keys vibrate like a real piano smile

This accompanied by studio monitors will be pretty awesome.

Is there anyway to do this? Disable the onboard piano sounds and use the ones from the computer?

Certainly.

Enable the P105's 'Local Off' function to 'disable' the connection between the keyboard and the built-in sound.

Then connect the output from your computer to the line-in jacks on your P105. Note that in order to achieve this while also outputting to your monitor speakers, you may need to use a mixer.

Kind regards,
James

That's what a line-in connection is for. Unfortunately for you, the P105 doesn't have one, so you're out of luck.

You could probably wire up your own line-in if you're handy with a soldering iron, however.

Oh that does suck... frown

All the keyboard has is a USB connection it seems.

Has line out.. No line in frown
