Connections and Support
Piano Adventures® Player works great as a jukebox to accompany any acoustic piano, but you can unlock additional functionality by connecting to a MIDI keyboard. The simplest connection requires just a USB device cable and Apple’s USB Camera adapter. Find the right configuration for you.
Piano Adventures® Player features a high‐quality sampled soundset. Enjoy the full definition by connecting to a good sound system using an auxiliary cable from the headset jack. See our recommendations.
