Thanks for pointing out the direction. I will also try an Audio splitter 3.5mm to connect my NU1X to my phone.

Given the number of YAG owners here, i thought there would be more response by now for your recording question/issue.... meanwhile, a peek at the owner’s manual does not reveal any control for USB recording gain level BUT there is a procedure for adjusting volume of USB playback of recording .... its unclear if that procedure matches the way you have tried playback.

Also, the manual Yamaha literature also states support only for USB connection to Windows and Mac OSs .... which might explain the results you get when attaching to a Samsung device.

After recording a WAV file you have to normalize the peak volume. For instance in Audacity. A value of -3dB is often recommended. This will make it loud. The reason for these files being quiet is they have big headroom for very loud playing. If they had high gain to make regular playing loud, then a sudden loud chord-cluster would be clipped.

Long story short: normalize the audio file.

Thanks for the help. I have used Audacity to adjust the volume and will move on to synchronise the audio and video.

I will just include a youtube link for my recording through Microphone. Recording the sound coming out of the speaker into the microphone is a bit lame. There are some background noise I need to learn to remove or try to record in a quieter environment to start with.

I am joining the excitement club about the N1X. Mine will be delivered this Friday or early next week (more likely).

I have been searching for information on the box dimensions and weights, but does not seem to find any good information. I know that the entire shipment is about 350 lbs - speaking about that 100 lbs heavier than the instrument actual weight (as per yamaha’s website).

Do you think I could handle the moving of the boxes from my door to inside the building just using a costco dolly cart 😅. I am of tiny stature (as is my apartment), so this has been a constant concern 😅

Yay! One more new (and soon to be over the moon) owner - welcome and congrats Gentle Spirit!

Is hiring pros to move (and may be even assemble) an option for you, depending on your circumstances? I personally like to leave transportation and assembly of pianos to the pros.

If you had a person to help and a dolly of the right size and weight capacities, you could probably manage. You might also need ramps. I once helped a friend move her piano (cabinet furniture type, top slab comes off, about 80kg) from the basement to the ground level using a dolly, bungees, blanket and ramp. The dollies and ramp were rented from Home Depot. They have much stronger moving equipment as well - you could check their website for rentals.


A man must love a thing very much if he practices it without any hope of fame or money, but even practice it without any hope of doing it well. Such a man must love the toils of the work more than any other man can love the rewards of it.

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for your response. I am thinking about hiring a mover first as I am not certain where the deliverer will drop of the shipment - the tracking says residential delivery, but the street in front of my building has been blocked, so I am no longer certain of that possibility. I will still have to move the boxes to the elevator.

Regardless, I definitely need help with the final steps of assembling: lifting the cabinet and place it on top of the speaker board. I cannot imagine doing it myself 😅

I will keep you posted on my journey 😊

Thank you so much! I was not being creative with name and just picked the one my friend used to call me. I hope I will be always gentle with the instrument!

I'd pay the dealer to do all the lifting and carrying. And assembling.
Let him be responsible for making things right.
And accept the delivery with a signature only **after** all is well and done.

You might try comparing notes with ikkiyikki who, when last seen in this thread, was contemplating the final steps ..... and lifting and carrying and assembling .... of this -

You are welcome MaxLi, and thank you for your recording. 🙂

After my first reply to you, i am guessing CG’s tip helped you get past the low-volume-playback problem ....? ... since then i found a third Yamaha document that indicates they DO support Androids - AKA - non-ios devices.

Of course the first document (manual) only mentions USB-to-host connectivity in context of ‘smart devices” ..... but then the second document adds mention of support for Windows OSs while also referencing advice to read the third document 😄

Two people with a dolly should be able to with no problem. Get help and you should be fine.

Congrats.

God Bless

Gentlespirit, congratulations on your new piano. You don’t mention your location. Did you purchase the N1x from a dealer, or on line? The dealer’s normally have trained professional movers that assemble the piano in your home. As Mac says, that way the dealer is responsible for poor assembly or damage.

I've had to get back to my dealer as I'm still experiencing this blank key issue.

I was able to record a video of it happening, it especially happens on the D an octave above middle C. It happens about ten seconds in https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EaoLPmkCQPeaEbesOSjyhV3vfr55F1Mq/view?usp=sharing

This video has been forwarded to Yamaha.

MaxLi, i have quoted your original post here to get clarification from you that may help anybody including me help you accomplish the specific method & type of USB drive recording you are after.

“I tried to record my playing onto a USB drive and volume turned out to be really low”

I originally interpreted this to mean - you played a piece on your YAG during which you used the YAG’s recorder to record, in audio format, directly to a thumb drive plugged into your YAG, after which you unplugged this drive from YAG and plugged it into a laptop where you must maximize the volume to barely hear the recording .....

... upon further review, especially with some of the comments with respect to your desire to record the sound and video simultaneously so as to best synchronize them , plus mmathew’s reference to a far earlier section of this thread where slothrop was having issues recording OVER USB, NOT DIRECTLY TO A USB DRIVE, it seems likely that you have in fact used some other connection/option to “record my playing onto a USB drive” so you can capture the sound and video at the same time, which won’t happen by recording onto a USB drive attached directly to the YAG.


Please clarify and accept my apologies for not correctly interpreting your original post.... i was trying to help, not hurt. 🙂

How loud do you want it to be? A USB recording (.WAV) played at half volume on my Mac, using QuickTime player seems to be just right (at least for me.)

You might want to check out some earlier posts on this thread starting here: http://forum.pianoworld.com/ubbthre...avantgrand-n1x-hands-on.html#Post2853489 and hopefully you will find some solution to your liking...

MaxLi, also see the following reference to an older section of this thread wherein a YAG owner reported their success recording the playing of their YAG’s A&V directly to their smartphone.

Regards, drew

Unfortunately, that was not an option for me since the piano was ordered online (I did test played N1 a year ago and really liked it, just did not have the courage to get one).
But I think I may try to hire a helper to assist in putting the piano together. Strangely I really love furniture assemble, just the sheer weight of the cabinet is a disadvantage.

Thank you so much, and I hope you have had a good day!

Also, thanks to @David B and @drewr (I don't know how to address multiple mentions in a single post. My apologies!)

Sorry guys that I kind of let it lapse to report back on the setup of this piano. 'Tis done

[Linked Image]

My cousin came to town to help. The upside-down box was righted in a matter of seconds, without any drama, much as one would an old mattress. The setup took only a few minutes and he then spent like an hour playing.... was head over heels.

I have to admit I'm not enamored of the thing. It's just okay. No question that it's in an entirely different orbit than the old Casio but still (for me) well short of the experience of sitting in front of an actual concert grand. It very well could be that I'm spoiled. In any case, I'm not worthy. The most I ever got to was a halfway passable Moonlight 1st movement. Who am I to judge?

ps. For my preference the music rest is about three inches too high. Is this height standard to all Yamahas?
