    • Only if you already have one.    The correct answer is the device you already have is the most affordable and will likely work with many digital mixers if it is reasonably modern. 
    • Electrical power = Voltage X Current   500mA = 0.5A USB voltage is 5V   Hence, the most power the piano can safely provide is 0.5 X 5 = 2.5W. It should be more than enough to power that 1W LED lamp.    More than 500mA can damage it (according to what’s posted by Cocker) but I guess there’s some protection inside the piano. Or, you can use a 10 Ohm resistor to make sure current is limited at 500mA. 
    • I’ve been thinking about this for a long time, and this is exclusive related to synths used for the “traditional” music composition (electronic, prog, jazz,… all genres). Therefore the use and ideas more related as experimental doesn’t apply… really interested in knowing your thoughts…   Synthesizers have transformed music production, composition and created new genres. Over the last years, specially evaluating latest new products from major manufactures (Oberheim, Korg, Yamaha, Kurzweil, Arturia, Novaiton, Roland and Nord) I cannot ignore the fact we have increased relabels and relaunches from vintage gear with same waveforms, architectures and at last, the same delivery of sound palette.   Making a comparison with electric guitars (e.g. Stratocaster)…:  Its design has remained largely unchanged over the years, despite technological advancements in pickups, electronics, and manufacturing techniques. The delivey is the same sound over the last 60 years.   Both instruments (synths and guitars) have undergone periods of rapid innovation followed by refinement and consolidation around established designs and technologies. Evaluating synths in most genres I can see the patches used in “real life” remains the same, with sparks of innovation here and there… After all, I don’t see it as a limitation but as a door to be free of GAS and a break from the endless journey for more gear.
    • It looks like your device exceeds the 500mA (0.5A) limit stated in the manual. I would not plug that light into the YC.  I double checked my light and found that its power requirements also exceed 0.5A, so I thank you for bringing this possibility to my attention.   I have added a “Y” to the power cord for the YC so there is a 110V outlet at the keyboard end.  I now plan to plug in a USB multiblock there so I can plug my light in. 
    • I didn't see a demo version only $$$.

    • And I just tested it, unfortunately it's not working like that, a bit sad, that would have been intelligent!
    • I have one of these, the 2408, since a couple of years, but never really used the AUXes, do you guys have any idea how AUX 3 and 4 are dealt with on the stereo channels? Can the "musician mix" outputs be used for actually sending stereo signal from a stereo channel on either of AUX 3 or 4, using a TRS cable, and by this actually being able to feed a stereo effect with actual stereo signal?   I could try this of course, but after reading this review I figured I'd throw this out to start with!      
    • Yes, the three synth engines are freely assignable to the fixed splits.
