Connecting kawai cl30 with logicx pro

Sat Oct 03, 2020 6:47 am

Hello, i have a problem with connecting my kawai cl30 with logicx pro. Im using a midi connection, i hear my piano but everything sounds strange, not in time and not the same as im playing. It is possible that this model of piano is to old to logic, or i need some software for that? Or i must change some midi devices on logic?

How are you monitoring the piano? What do you mean by "strange" exactly?

If you connect your kawai cl30 piano to Logic via MIDI, the sounds you will hear from Logic is the sound of the instantiated plugin, likely a sampled piano plugin instrument. That one will most likely sound different from the sound of your kawai cl30.
The delay might be caused by how you set the MIDI on your kawai. Have you tried setting it to Local Off?
