Connect Yamaha P45 to Yamaha Reface CP

Unread post by Johny » Sun Jan 13, 2019 3:35 pm

Hi. I'd like to know if there is some kind of adaptor to connect a Yamaha Reface to the Yamaha P45 master keyboard. Thank you.

Hi Johny, welcome to yamahamusicians.com :)

I don't think the Yamaha P45 has standard midi ports, just a USB to HOST port. In other words it can only connect to a computer.

So you would not be able to connect a reface directly to the P45. The only way to do it would be via a computer and DAW. I assume you want to control the reface from the P45?

the problem is the P45 requires a 'HOST' in order to connect to anything. If you have standard midi ports on your audio interface you could plug the reface into that, plug the P45 into the computer and then set the MIDI OUT in the DAW software to send to the reface. This way when you play the keys on the P45 they will trigger the sounds in the reface.

If you can tell us what your complete set up is it would help to give you more specific details?

So what is the make and model of your audio interface?
What computer are you using, Mac or PC?
What DAW software do you have, for example Cubase, Logic, Reaper etc?

I have a PC. I use Flstudio and Ableton Live and my audio interface is a Focusrite Scarllet 6i6.

Ok so if you have the Scarlet 6i6...very nice interface by the way ;) then you are all sorted for connecting. It does though depend on what you want to do so, are you just looking to control the reface with the P45 or do you also want to record it too?
