Default Classenti CDP-2 Help! - 30-09-2011, 11:56 AM

Hi guys,
I have a Classenti CDP-2 and really love using it, however, I've always struggled to record more than one track with a different instrument in Sonar.

I've just got the manual from the suppliers, which is typically written in broken English (translated from Japanese no doubt), and I wondered if anyone more 'midi-savvy' can help me work out if it's possible to do this on my piano? Here's the manual:

Hi Andrew
I must have missed this post.
You're limited in what instruments you can record as there's not much choice from the presets. However as you mention Sonar you can use this keyboard as a midi controller and record track by track with Sonar. You will need a midi interface which connects the midi-in and midi-out of the keyboard to the UBS port in your PC.
If it's not set up right though you will get a piano sound from every track.
If you don't fancy recording with the internal voices then you can record any voice although they're not on your keyboard by using a VST (Virtual Sound Technology) as an add-on to Sonar.
You would have to turn the internal clock off and set up the transmit/receive channels on both and I suggest you look here for midi connection information.

Hope this helps, if you get stuck shout and I'll try to help
