Hi piano forum! I've been having some trouble trying to hook up my p105 to the computer via the 2 line-out in the back. So what type of cable and adapters do i need to connect to the computer to get the best sound possible? If any other p105 owners could help me with this problem i would greatly appreciated it!!

You want a cable with two 1/4 inch mono on one side (I'm assuming your DP has this type of aux out) and a single stereo 1/8 inch (I'm assuming this is what your computer has) on the other.

Something like this.

Make sure you plug into the "line-in" jack on your computer, not the microphone jack.

If you want really good recording quality you might want to use an external audio interface instead of built-in sound. Something like the Focusrite 2i2, Presonus Audiobox USB, or M-Audio FastTrackPro. For these you would use a different cable.

Besides the potential quality difference, a dedicted audio interface may give you lower latency. Latency is a killer for piano (or guitar, or anything with a sharp attack). Depends on your computer, and the drivers you are using, but I've had issues with built-in audio getting the latency low enough to use. On macs I've had better luck than pcs, but it's still iffy. It really doesn't take much of a lag to throw most people off, even if your ear can't distinguish the delay it will feel "off" and disconnected.

I say all this and it might not be an issue for you. If you are recording piano-only tracks with no other instruments you can monitor the piano through headphones and if there's latency it won't matter. Once you play back the audio it's not an issue, it's only the monitoring-while-playing that the latency matters.
