In fact, there are two headphone jacks to accommodate both teacher and student—great for duets.
With the built-in 2-track note recorder you can record just the Treble or Bass clef part, allowing you to practice hands separately on difficult passages. Take your practice session even further by recording entire performances for evaluation. And a single USB connection provides access to self-paced music education software like Sibelius Groovy.
Audio inputs are built in, making it easy to hook up an iPod or CD player and play along to pre-recorded classical and jazz fake book accompaniment tracks. Learning new repertoire has never been easier.

Just press record—your computer instantly transcribes what you play into professional-grade sheet music.

Featuring 128 high-quality presets, this GM instrument gives you instant access to a palette of inspiring sounds.

Superior Sound and Playability
The M Audio DCP300 digital piano features premium internal sounds meticulously sampled from some of the world’s finest instruments, including the classic Steinway Model D concert grand piano. The remarkable DCP300 boasts a finely crafted 88-note keyboard with graded hammer action to reproduce the feel of an acoustic piano—from a lighter touch on the high notes, down to a more weighty response on the lows. And unlike many digital pianos, the DCP300 gives you all three of the pedals found on grand pianos—including sostenuto. The powerful combination of authentic sound, realistic touch and grand piano pedaling provides a musical, inspiring playing experience for beginners and serious performers alike.
USB Computer Compatibility—Access the World of Music Software

A single USB cable lets you plug into a wide range of music software for education, notation, MIDI recording and more. The DCP300’s USB interface is class compliant, meaning OS X and Windows already support it without requiring you to download and install additional driver software. A computer running Mac OS X or Windows XP/Vista will automatically recognize the DCP300—no hassles or tricky configuration. The DCP300 even includes Sibelius First software—the easy-to-use application from the industry leader in music notation.
A Musical Director’s Best Friend

The dual 20-watt stereo speaker system is powerful enough to fill a rehearsal room with rich, full-bodied sound. For larger performance halls, the built-in audio outputs can be connected to a keyboard amp or live sound PA. And because the DCP300 is a digital instrument, it never needs tuning. The included Sibelius First software lets you arrange and print your own SATB and lead-sheet arrangements for your group to rehearse and perform. Scores and parts can even be rendered as audio, so you can provide singers with rehearsal MP3s.
