With the pianissimo and fortissimo both set at 9 o'clock, the system will not play with any dynamic range-- loud and soft notes will play at around the same level. So you'll want to change that.

You should set pianissimo to around 10 o'clock, fortissimo to around 2 o'clock, then turn the treble and bass gain controls on the playback board counterclockwise until the point where notes encoded with the lowest expression level just barely play. An easy way to play music for testing at the lowest level is to drive the Pianocorder from your computer using the <a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="http://dp70.dyndns.org/pianocorder/wapc/">Pianocorder control plug-in for WINAMP</a>, which has a volume slider that adjusts the encoded expression levels. Move this slider all the way to the left while playing any piano MIDI file, and this will result in every note of the file being sent with the lowest expression level.

Be extremely careful making adjustments to the playback board pots while the system is powered up-- the Pianocorder is a hot chassis device, and dangerous potentials are present on the playback board even though it looks entirely low voltage.
