Ravenscroft 275 to Yamaha CLP-685 problems

I recently purchased Ravencroft 275 on my iPhone 11 with the idea that I would be able to play those sounds through my Yamaha CLP 685. My problem is this: I can play the sounds through my piano when I use the virtual keyboard on the app but I can't hear the sounds when I use the CLP 685's keyboard. All I hear is the current preset sound from my piano.

I'm trying to use my piano keyboard to play sounds from the app. I have a USB cable connected to a lightning camera adapter connected to my iPhone plugged into the USB to host plug. The firmware is up to date. I’ve changed the setting to LOCAL OFF.

This app is not the $200 full version. It’s only the $15 version from the Apple App Store. My IOS is up to date also.

Does anyone know how I can use the piano's keyboard to control the sounds of the app?
Thanks in advance for any assistance!

In the Ravenscroft app, does your Yamaha appear as a device in the “Settings -> Audio/MIDI Preferences -> Device” drop-down box? Is so have you selected that as your output device?

That’s the only setting in the IOS app that controls the output. Otherwise, you’ll have to connect the headphone output of your ipad/iphone to the audio input of your piano, which is how I have to do it on my ES8.

Whew! I finally solved the problem. I had all of the correct connections and cords. However, I wasn't following the correct process. Following the directions from Yamaha's website for how to connect an iPad/iPhone to a Clavinova (Yes, I should have read ALL of the instructions first) it said to make sure that the piano is turned off, connect the iPhone to the piano and make certain that no apps are running on the iPhone, connect the iPhone to the piano, turn on the piano, turn on the app, make sure that piano is set to LOCAL OFF (under the MIDI settings), and you're good to go.

It works but not like I was hoping. Using the CLP-685's keyboard to control the app, there's just this fraction of a second delay of the sound when I begin to play the keyboard. It's really annoying. If anyone knows how to change it so that so there's no delay, I'd love to hear from you.

For the latency, you should check the settings in your Ravenscroft app, go to Audio/Midi Preferences and look at the Audio Buffer Size. If it's not already at 256 samples, set it to that and see if that improves things.
