I am not one of the fortunate teachers who "never get sick" or are immune to germs. For most of my life, I've had a less than stellar immune system, despite eating well, exercising, etc. I have to take extra care so I don't spend half of my days home sick. It's just ...

FLAC is designed to support a prediction function using more or less samples. Up to a 32th order FIR. The more accurate the function is, the more 0/+1/-1 we have to encode and the more space we save. (As with morse code where the frequent “e” is coded by a plain dot “.”)....

A couple of things: Did you try it through headphones? Did you try a re-initialize? Did the technician show it to you working? When we can't reproduce a problem, we call the client in and everyone listens together. Did he use your power supply? I don't think you have a pow...

I use my C lever for the high treble in grands, and for all uprights except a Diskclavier that does not have enough clearance. At first I used the lever throughout the grands, but I found a benefit in varying the muscle sets that I use during a grand tuning. The C lever gets mo...

I don't think many people - even his fans - associate Brendel with passion & emotion. I was quite surprised when he brought out a CD of Mussorgsky's Pictures in his mature years, and I bought it out of curiosity. Within the first few minutes, I regretted it - there is nothin...

Dogperson, my own teachers never made themselves inaccessible, therefore, I'm the same way. I guess a lot of teacher habits come from how they were themselves "raised" educationally. It makes me happy that my students are curious and have burning questions they want a...

I don't think there's any question that natural talent exists. But there are some pursuits and activities where talent is almost sufficient by itself to get you to the top, and others where it gets you nowhere without the intense training to go with it, because motor skills are i...

QuoteYes, that might be achievable. I've never played the 168 model. No idea what it's like. Rest assured, it's a darling of a piano. Many of our customers some of whom have been concert class type pianists, have chosen this model, sometimes over many others of larger size. I ...

Woohoo! I finally got something recorded! Yay me! I'm sorry about the false start on the Ecossaise that should have been edited out. I don't have access to the calendar showing which days of the year Audacity actually works. I tried to clip off the false start, but, apparently t...

I have recently started using a Levitan C hammer for Grands. I have not done enough tunings to determine whether I like it as it does require some adaptation to what I had been doing with my Schaff lever. I do appreciate a couple of things right off the bat: 1. I don't have to f...

We’ve recently discussed how a well-crafted FLAC compression (lossless) can achieve up to 1:10 compression ratio. For instance the CFX Lite installer is 2GB and it uncompresses to more than 20GB samples. Wondering if Nord and Dexibell samples are compressed. If so, a 360MB woul...
