I got a 30 note pedalboard (with a 5-pin midi connector) that I want to use with my two keyboards (Yamaha P-155 and Kaway CA13) to play simultaneously on all three. The problem is that when I connect the pedalboard either to the Yamaha or to the Kaway, I only get the piano sound from the pedal notes, even when on the manual I can play a different instrument. Also, the sound from the pedals is a bit louder than that from the manual (that the pedalboard is connected to) and I barely can hear the notes played with hands because the bass is too loud. I would like to:
- be able to change the instrument of the pedalboard to be different from the sound of the manual board of the keyboard that the pedalboard is connected to,
- and, if possible, tone down the sound of the pedal notes so that they don't stand out against the manual notes.
The user guides for the keyboards are here:
Even though I have the guides, I don't seem to be able to get my head around this problem.
