Hi all,

I've recently placed an order for the 'kiyola' Roland model. It's expensive and may be missing features that other models have, but it's mainly a gift and would be used for a previously intermediate player (didn't play since childhood) returning to learn classical piano.

I've since learned about vst's and thought it could be some fun to explore that world myself. The kiyola doesn't have a standard line in port or support usb audio. I had hoped to hear the music through the pianos own speaker system rather than purchase additional speakers. For streaming audio to the onboard speakers, it seems bluetooth is the only option which I gather has too high a latency for real-time.

The piano does have the facility to play WAV files from a usb stick. I wondered then if it is possible to connect a computer (something like raspberry pi would be ideal) with software emulating a usb device and stream audio by continuously writing to a file. I'm not familiar with the USB standard so I have some reading to do but I imagine there would be complications around the pianos read buffer etc.

Anyone have familiarity with such low level I/O operations and can see reasons why this would be impossible or crazy difficult?

If you still have the ability to cancel your order; you could order a piano that did have the features you mentioned.
