Hello: My name is ***** ***** I am a Yamaha service technician. From past experience in the Claviova units. I would suspect the problem is with the Hymnsoft program or where it is coming from. The piano takes the MIDI data it receives and plays it. If the data is missing, intermittent, or weak from the playing unit you will get this problem. Try a different MIDI source and see if the problem still occurs. Then we will know where to look for the problem.

We have tried it from two separate computers. When we play it through the computer, using the piano as a speaker, it works fine.

Have you tried running the Clavinova from another keyboard through MIDI?

No. I will see if that is an option for us.

Have you tried another MIDI source on the Yamaha?
