We’ve had a CP for a while and you can set up voices for each zone, the owner’s manual should detail this my setups are splits or single voices, so I have not done this yet, but it should be possible. Set up a four zone performance with the first two being the two voices you want to use, set up the other two zones with voices that you don’t want and assign their volume settings to zero and with different midi channels than your other two voices.
This in theory should give you two internal and two external voices when playing the CP’s mifi keys though you may be limited to an internal and external voice playing the same notes.

In the end, it’ll be much easier just to decide what you want to do. The CP is a superb piano but Yamaha cut it off at the knees in terms of midi file playback capability and they didn’t bother with putting anything about how to load files into the internal memory in the owners manual to save the embarrassment of admitting the sequencer memory is so small. I’ve managed to get four voices at once, but only two on each half of the split point My question is therefore, can I have the following configurations, and if so.
Help me Obi-Wan Kenobis. That way you should get those two “zero volume” zones to transmit midi data without sounding the CP local voices assigned to those zones. I’ll do some reading on it.
