Customer Question
I bought a Grand...

I bought a Grand Piano Roland player piano several years back. It only has a floppy disk - can it be retrofitted to have a flash drive for example?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your instrument?

One moment - I have to go and look. Will be right back.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your instrument? What have you tried so far?

It is a Roland KR-1077. I have had it a number of years - maybe since 2003 or 2004.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Instrument Expert to know before I connect you?

No, this is the main question I have - question on retrofitting piano with a flash drive or relevant.

Yes, you can use a USB Emulator on your Roland KR-1077 to connect a USB memory device:
