How did you connect USB flash drive to CVP-301
by: Maksym

Hello! Have the same model for many years, and now I need to save (record) *.wav to USB flash for convenience and can't figure out, how to do it. There is no accessories for this model (for USB-TO-DEVICE interface) in shops. I can find only SM cards and SM-USB adapter, but it is for MIDI (and styles etc) only, not for *.WAV

How did you doing your records on the USB flash drive?

Keyboard vs soundcard
by: Dick Rector

Hello Mabel,

If I understand your question or problem well....
The sound on your computer is not the same as from your keyboard?

No, the standard sound-card in your computer, unless it is a very special one, can't simply produce the same quality of sound as your keyboard. On top of that, unless your computer is hooked up to a good sound-system, it sounds 'thin' from the tiny speakers. No 'depth' and hardly any low sounds.
When you listen trough a good pair of headphones you will be amazed how much better the sound is and when you burn your music to a CD and play it on a decent stereo-set it will sound as good (or even better) as the keyboard!
The complete 'musical' info however is indeed on your USB-stick, so don't worry about the sound from your computer.

I hope this answers your question.
