Prodigy II Quick Start Guide

Welcome to the Prodigy II Quick Start Guide to learn how to operate and use the PianoDisc Prodigy II.

For Prodigy II to work correctly, we highly recommend having a Certified PianoDisc Technician perform the initial setup and calibration for you. If your piano came with a PianoDisc system pre-installed but hasn’t been set up or configured by a Certified PianoDisc Technician, please contact your local dealer. Without the correct setup, calibration, and connection, your system won’t be able to perform to the best of its ability.

I. Download the PianoDisc iQ App and its Complimentary Music

Use the PianoDisc iQ app to control your piano and play music from your iOS device. For optimal results, we suggest using a dedicated device such as an iPad to control your Prodigy II.

  1. If your downloads stop for any reason, tap “Start All” on the top of “My Downloads” to resume your downloading.

II. Connect Your PianoDisc Prodigy II System with Your iOS Device

With your Prodigy II, you can play music from any iOS device using its Bluetooth Audio Connection.

  1. Tap on any song in the iQ Player app and enjoy your live music.

    If you are encountering issues connecting to your PianoDisc system via Bluetooth, make sure no other device is currently connected to the system using Bluetooth. Only one device can be connected to the PianoDisc system at a time, and will prevent anything else from connecting.
