hi Larry
well I went to local music store and purchased a cord for my keyboard and a y plug The salesman did not thnk it would work and showed me a roland 60 wat $649 so I took the chance on the cord and plug at $25 But it didnt work I thought it was worth the try I still dont understand it not working Anyway I thought I would let you know the outcome
BTW it did not work with only one keyboard attached to the plug either

Jeanette,
Something is wrong here. First take a look at the male plug that the first keyboard plugs into the "Y" adapter. Is this a mono or stero plug?
Take a look at the male plug of the 2nd keyboard is this a mono or stero plug?
A mono plug will have only one "metal" ring behind the tip. A stero male plug will have two "metal" rings behind the tip.

Take a look at the "Y" adapter - does the male plug have one ring (mono) or two rings (stero).

If the keyboard male plugs are stero, 2 rings behind the tip, then you must make sure the "Y" adapter also has the two rings behind the tip of the plug end. If the keyboard male plugs have only one ring behind the tip of the plug then the "Y" adapter should only have one ring behind the tip of the plug.

The keyboard having a stero type plug will not work properly with a mono "Y" adapter. If the keyboard male plug is stero then the "Y" adapter must be stero "to" stero also.

If you are not sure than take the keyboard cable and the "Y" adapter back to the store and tell the person you need the adapter to work with the male plug of the keyboard.

Therefore if the keyboard male plugs are stero then the "V" sections of the adapter must also be stero and the male plug of the "Y" adapter also
must be stero.

Also if the keyboard male is mono than the "V" female end of the adapter should be mono, as well as the male plug end of the adapter.

Also both keyboards should have the same type of male plug from the keyboard. whether it be mono or stero. I cannot see any reason this will not work if the plugs and adapter are matched as mentioned.
I hope this helps.
Let me know the out come, please.
Larry

Thanks again larry
Yes you are right it appears it is a faulty Y plug My electrician music friend couldnt see why it wouldnt work either so he took it apart( it would have cost more in petrol to take it back )However he has loaned me a similar set up to try out We will get together on Tuesday and will try it then Let you know how it goes soon after that

hi Larry
Tried it out on Tuesday and it worked well (sort of)There was a distortion But friend has done me up my own cord set up so again we will try on Tuesday Its looking good so thank you very much for your help
I must say though that the sound is soooo good through an amplifier Even makes me sound better LOL

many thanks for all your help We have now got sorted with a wire and plug set up put together by a friend It works well It will take some getting used to hearing the sound (over ) there instead of right here If that makes sense Its almost a different sound Much richer and we havent got a good amplifier either

To Larry and Jenome,

You can use regular (stereo) speakers with the keyboard, and you can feed it through the stereo amplifier (TAPE or AUX inputs, using the PHONO input would be overdriven (distorted)).

There is an additional note, though. When you are using a subwoofer system, you loose the stereo image with the bass frequencies because
(1) The left and right speakers do not have that much bass responce (using smaller speakers) and
(2) Subwoofers ONLY play the differance between channels (in the low frequecy spectrum). (That is: what low sounds that are NOT in common with both channels. If you have the bass guitar on left and right, it wont come out the subwoofer.)

Another example, you can have the drums on the left side, and bass guitar on the right. Such systems only will play the bass frequencies (bass and bass-drum) over the subwoofer and you loose the stereo image (left vs right). Speaker systems built for computers are like this.

Good stereo speakers are not like this, as they have equal bass to high frequency responce and a subwoofer is not needed.

Hope this helps..........................Pat
