I was talking about the CA59, not the CA99. What worked on the CA59 definitely does not work on the NV10S, despite having the most recent updates.

Yes, it was the same on the CA59. Not optimal (a global setting would be in order, as I'm sure you will agree) but workable. The Novus NV10 once again shows a regression here.

So to clarify, on your NV10S, if you set the audio recording format to WAV, record and save a song, then try to record again, the subsequent recording will not use WAV format?

Incidentally, in the PianoRemote app, the recorder format is located in the menu. Perhaps a future version of the the CA99/79, NV10S/NV5S touchpanel UI will also adopt this behaviour?

Thanks all for your thoughts ! I must admit I have never bothered to look into things like MIDI, VST, PianoTeq etc. Might be worth investigating.

Thanks for getting back James. I seem to remember the setting did not stick, but I'm not sure anymore now. I can't even remember where to find the WAV option now... I know I had trouble finding it last time, as I had to use some other screen to start recording. Can't be bothered to look for it again, as I am finally resigned to recording in mp3. The result seems so sound just as good to me.

Thanks also for pointing out the PianoRemote menu. That's more like it ! Unfortunately I can't use this because I need both my iPad (score reader) and smartphone (video camera) during recording.

One other thing that irks me is the very loud volume of the headphone audio. Whenever I put on the headphones, I need to turn the volume down a lot. And back up again when using the Novus speakers. Ironically, you can only set the headphones volume louder and the speaker volume softer... go figure ! I have a rather expensive headphone, but unfortunately without its own volume control ... if only I'd known !

Hello cbreemer,

Well, if you're ever motivated to record in WAV format gain, you can access the setting with the following operation:

1. Start from main Piano or Sound tab
2. Open the editor window
3. Tap bottom right menu (three dots)
4. Select "Recorder settings"
5. Change recorder format from MP3 to WAV

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
James

Thanks James, and sorry for the late reply. I must try to switch email notification on.
When I try your suggestion, there is no option "Recorder settings". Only "Save this sound", "Open Recorder", and "Open metronome". When I try the middle option, all I get is a screen saying "Overdubbing Not Selected, and a start button. Why would it assume I want to do this ?
Argh... I hate this menu system more every time I try to use it ! The character-and button based menus of the CA49 were SO much better.

Hey cbreemer,

When You are in the "Open Recorder" option menu there are three dots on the bottom right just like James stated.
Those three dots only appear if You have usb stick connected to the piano.
Hope it helps,

Dariusz

Thanks Dariusz ! Indeed I didn't have the USB inserted, and hence the magic dots didn't appear.... a sneaky trick, this one. I'll try to remember it now 😁
But, as I found before, the selected WAV format only holds for the session. Once the piano is switched off and on again, it's back to MP3. I just can't understand why this setting is not in the global System settings. To my mind, this is a choice that you only want to make once.
