Q: Thanks for your reply. I play on a Yamaha CLP-S408PE. I would like to expand its features without buying another keyboard, and find an expander like it which is easy to use and 100% compatible.

A: Hello, Thank-you for your question. First let me say that you have selected an fantastic instrument - a real Yamaha top-of-the-line keyboard. If I understand you correctly, you're looking how to expand this keyboard. Since the CLP-S408PE does not come with handy styles or backing drum and bass tracks, you'd probably do well with obtaining a backing module (e.g., Roland BK-7m). This module simply hooks up to your MIDI Out from your CLP and connects to the BK-7m's MIDI in port. The module will sense the keyboard, but you should select "digital piano" in the menu that will present in the module's LCD when it starts up (normally only the first time). Your pedals and key presses from the CLP will be detected in the Roland module. Audio out from the Roland module will need to be put into an amplifier (I just use a home stereo). You can play your CLP and mix its voices with that of the Roland module - or you can mute the CLP and use the many quality voices (hundreds) in the module. Also, you can record using the module too - to USB stick. Also, you can download new backing styles from the internet. A module, like the Roland BK-7m can really expand an already excellent keyboard. Hope this information is useful - I recommend going on line and looking a other examples of modules and how they are used. Ketron also makes backing modules.
