I'm looking into purchasing a new piano at our music store, it's a clp yamaha clavinova. I didn't look at the number so It's just a clp. It's $1,500.00 Brand new!! Well it has USB and stuff but what I'm wondering is : can you connect a guitar distortion pedal to a clavinova or keyboard to make another sound? Or an amplifier for a richer sound? Any help appreciated Smile

Cool! So all of them will work on yamaha clavinova? I heard that you can save voicing files on your clavinova to use later. Is this true, and how do you do this? I want to know for future reference.

Also where do you look for digital amps?

Get a soundcard with a midi-interface. and then just plug your digital piano in, and play on a music program(cubase, reason, etc) and those programs have downloadable sounds Smile pretty much millions

Which CPL version? Digital pianos will usually have a bank of sounds they can make. These are either samples or simulated, limited or expandable with further expansion cards. After that what they usually also have is midi capability, either both IN and OUT or just IN. That is a protocol for music machines and programs to comunicate. Midi is not music or sound it's like "play note X with velocity Y".

With Midi Out you can use your piano or midi controller -- does not make any sound -- to give orders to a midi capable device, either another piano/synthesizer hardware or software. If you play a whole piece it's the note information that gets sent, which can then be reproduced with any sound that destination is capable of: piano, flute, guitar, random noise, etc.

When sending midi out, none of your existing sounds on the piano are used. If you have midi in that can mean -- depends on implementation -- you can have another machine or program play a midi file, maybe the one you played earlier, sounding exactly the same, or just listening to it in different sounds your digital piano/synthesizer can make.

If you have a headphone, or stereo out connection, that is whre sound comes out, and you can use a guitar destortion, or any other sound processing device as an FX to process the sound before sending it to some speakers/headphones. Here it's all about the sounds the piano can make, and nothing to do with midi at all.

You can do the same to an acoustic grand piano, if you can mic it and then send the sound to the guitar pedal. You'll probably need a good pre-amp for the mic, either stand alone, or in a mixer, or audio interface.
