Hi, I apologize for this newb question. I'm looking to upgrade the sound of my piano. Unfortunately my Roland HP506 doesn't do midi. So I'm wondering if pianos such as the Roland FP range will work if I connect one to a laptop via a midi cable. Thanks in advance!

Looking at specs, Roland HP506 does have MIDI: 'USB COMPUTER port: USB Type B'. Just buy regular printer USB cable and connect it to your laptop. It has much better key action (PHA4 Concert) than FP10 (PHA4 Standard). Don't be fooled by 'PHA4' shared by both actions, it's completely different.

The FP10 would be a big downgrade from the HP506.

Roland HP506 supports MIDI transmission to PC through USB cable with generic USB driver.
Make sure the 'MIDI Transmit Channel' in your Roland settings is not set to OFF, and that Synthogy is set to listen to either this channel, or to OMNI (all channels).
