Questions & Answers
from live chat
Is the keyboard FATAR or is it an own development?
All Dexibell models are using Fatar keyboards, customized according to our specific requests
Is it possible to connect it with a Windows computer?
USB MIDI connection works with Windows PCs, but Windows is not compatible with USB Audio standard. To have an audio connection between Dexibell instruments and Windows PCs, an audio interface is needed
Has S9 heavier / most “realistic” piano keybed?
Not so much heavier, but more realistic for sure
Can expression pedals layer in external sounds from other sound libraries?
You can freely decide what to control with expression pedal
Which cabling is needed between Vivo and the laptop?
Just a simple USB cable
Are the four keyboard zones A B C D to link separately to four separate pieces of MIDI equipment?
Each Zone can be assigned to a specific MIDI channel, so it can control the external device(s) having the same channel as MIDI reception channel
