A MIDI Input jack enables you to play the Cadenza's sounds with an external keyboard, a MIDI Output jack empowers you to use the Cadenza's keyboard to perform with any MIDI-compliant sound source.

Or, for completely silent practice at any hour, you can plug in headphones and silence the speakers. The Cadenza gives you an amazing piano experience without the massive size, weight... or price!
