Delay may or may not be an issue.

Speakers have plenty of output for a living room.

Had a quick go. Yeah, I won't need external speakers. In fact I often had to keep sliding the volume down! 🤣

Well I know I will be keeping it. Will have to play around a bit until I am happy with the piano sounds but already there were a few that I liked.

I found the hammer action and keys in general to be great, definitely pleased with that.

Does anyone know, I know I can record a piece directly on it but can I then send it via Bluetooth to my phone to share with others through WhatsApp etc?

I am trying to connect to zoom for my lessons online.

So far I connected from my FP90X USB to my iPad with a lightning adapter. It doesn’t seem to work. When I get home I will try and see if it will work on my laptop but I would prefer to have work on my iPad.

I would rather not use an audio interface like focusrite if I can do it directly from the FP90X.

Anyone else tried this/ or suggestions?

Yes the speakers are plenty loud.

My problem is how the speakers sound.

Do you find they sound good?

I'm not sure what you're trying to do, but can't it be done via bluetooth?

Mine sound good enough when playing audio from the phone over bluetooth, so I can't imagine they fare worse regarding the internal sound. What about yours don't you like?

Both my iPhone 12 and iPad Pro connect through usb for midi and audio. They just work.

I’m not sure how zoom fits into that picture.

Some apps you have to connect to the fp90x

Yeah, same here I can connect to my iPhone with the usb on the back of the keyboards.

It won’t work with zoom.

So I check the version (for fun) and my version is 1.0.1 and the latest is 1.0.3, I couldn’t even do the update. I kept getting “no update file”. I will go buy a different memory stick and see if this help.

I don’t think the upgrade will fix my zoom problem but it can’t hurt.

Not sure how you are trying to set things up, are you trying to route your zoom audio to the DP speakers? If so you can just use Bluetooth audio and save the hassle on wired connections.

Do you find they sound good?
Do you mean you don't like the sound from the internal speakers so you're using external now? So far they sound pretty good to me. My only issue so far is on the piano sounds the lower register sounds a bit muddy to me but I haven't played around with the equalizer settings or any settings at all yet so am hoping I can figure that out.

I would like for my teacher to hear me play via audio interface instead of my internal speakers.

Yes I don’t like the sound via internal speakers and like you I find the lower notes muddy.

If you get to improve the sound please share your settings.

I tried messing with the EQ and it would not save the changes. :-(


I kinda like my piano sound on the bright side.

I am hoping I don't notice it after a while.... or that my ears will pop and it will suddenly sound better!

I like the mids and highs so far, just those lows bugging me a bit.

I started using the free Korg Module with the free sample grand piano for iPhone. Sounds pretty good. I’m still not satisfied. Maybe I’m to picky??? I am hoping pianoteq will have a iOS version that sounds good soon. I’m really not interested in connecting my piano to a laptop. I’m the type of person who wants to play piano and not mess with technology if I can help it.

Ok so what I would like to do but don't know if it's possible is this: record a video of me playing using the smartphone but in a way that the sound goes directly to the phone/video rather than using the phone's microphone.

I know it's possible with the go mixer pro but I can't find that in stock anywhere and wondered if it's possible to do it some other way?

So it is not an internal speaker issue.

If you like a bright piano, try the stage or stage bright or concert brilliant

The equalizer slider setting don’t change when you power off. The equalizer frequency and mid range settings can be saved by doing a memory save function.

There is quite a bit of stuff going on in the low range of a piano.

I would turn ambience off,

lid to max, cabinet resonance off, soundboard to max

Turn all the resonances off
duplex scale off

Good luck!

It is an internal speaker issue.

The internal speakers are not good sounding period.

I tried them with Spotify listening to songs and still does not sound good to me. Maybe to others it sounds great but not to me.

The low notes issue is a different issue altogether.

I have that problem with my headphones too!!!

That being said I appreciate your help and will try your suggestions to see if it helps.
