You can also connect this digital piano to external devices such as audio interfaces and speakers with the 1/4" output and 2 x 1/4" headphone outputs.

Also new for winter NAMM 2016 is the M-Audio Accent Sound Module - an add-on expansion for the M-Audio Accent 88.

This compact unit connects to any USB or 5-pin MIDI Controller, allowing you to convert your standalone digital piano into a stage piano without needing a computer to act as a go-between. It features 20 built-in voices with the ability to split or layer up to three voices simultaneously.

"The Accent really fills a need for an affordable 88-key digital piano that feels great and has all the features and versatility a player could want,%u201D %u201CThe Accent Module is the ideal answer for anyone who wants that stage piano sound and feature-set and doesn't want to deal with a laptop.
