There's a very simple way of adding a line-in to your Korg C1air/G1air

Clearly I still can't drive the picture thing on this forum.

As seen in the link, the Korgs have an easy-access panel to the Bluetooth unit. Remove the 10 pin header, you'll see 3 wires on left hand side (white, red, black) I have attached these 3 wires to a female 3.5mm stereo (headphone) socket.

It's a rough n ready hack to insert a line-in to the piano, and it works great. My VST's can now play using the (actually very good sounding) 80w speaker system of my G1air.

I'll wire something a bit more permanent now I know it works the way I want it to.

I right clicked on the images (Windows 10) and copied the addresses of the images.

Another option is right clicking over each image on the gallery, opening it in another tab (chrome but it must work with any browser) and then you get the image URL.

It's been a while since I last used the forum's image hosting but it looks like they either changed the workflow or you used a different one. Anyway I agree it is not the most intuitive.

Good job, BTW.

Please forgive my dumb question, but where would I get a female 3.5 mm headphone socket? I don't have a headphone to take apart!

3.5 socket? If all else fails, amazon will come to the rescue... But if you don't have a soldering iron, I suggest to buy a male-female cable, cut it and separate the wires.
