Read Your Piano Keyboard User Manuals
Whatever piano keyboard you may have bought – Yamaha, Casio, Korg, or
Roland, you need to spend some time reading your user manual before you start using your piano-keyboard.
Though it is fact that we all rarely do it!
You will need to read the user manual especially if you intend to connect your keyboard to external electronic equipments or to a Computer.
You will have to refer to the Keyboard manuals when you want to do any of the following:
- Power Adapter – If you are using a used keyboard and if you do not have the original power adapter provided by the keyboard manufacturer then you will have to refer to the manual to see what it says about the voltage requirement.
- External amplifiers – If you want to connect your keyboard to external amplifiers to get that extra punch, it will be a good idea to refer to the user guide to get an idea of how to do it safely.
