When connecting Roland fp-10 (88 key) midi out to Yamaha E373 (61 key) midi in, what happens when a note above or below the E373 key range is played on the fp-10. Is the same voice played on the E373 even though it is out of range of its 61 keys?

If the sample in the E373 actually can go below below or above the 61 keys of the E373 it will be heard when played via midi by FP-10. If the manufacturer has samples that only stretch across 61 notes in the E373 then nothing will be heard above or below the 61 notes. So assuming the E373 has a piano sample loaded in it that can be played across all 88 keys then you should be able to play all 88 keys of the FP10 and hear the correct notes.

One slight problem.

The FP 10 does not have MIDI ports, just a USB host port.

The FP 90 X is the first in the FP range with MIDI sockets.
