I have discovered for those that wish to place their Disklavier CD content or Disklavier content created by Mark Fontana’s MIDI2PIANOCD onto a Digital Media Player should adjust their AAC or MP3 converters with these attributes:

Sample Rate 48-kHz and Stereo bit rate of 320-kbps

Make sure to deselect VBR (Variable Bit Rate). I have also discovered that Apple seems to have a lower quality DAC (Digital Audio Converters) in their iPod units vs. the Airport Express. I have had no success of even using a Disklavier lossless audio file while loaded on my iPod to correctly play without errors either on the Disklavier MarkIV or the Live Performance model LX. I believe it has to do something with the sampling rate.

Hello for all
I have Viscount grand DigiPlay digital piano with Pianodisc mechanizm installed on it.I can not make it play keys and the same time Test is performing the keys movement perfectly.There is no control box installed (PDS 128 Plus or higher)but the piano itself has Floppy drive installed on the dash.There is also a MiDI box on the front under the piano with the same connection holes as PDS 128 PLUS does on the back...Can anybody help me to make it play and move keys? Is anybody familiar with this viscount pianos with Pianodisc system on it?
