I just woke up and realized what has been feeling off for me personally this whole time, as well as what has been effective for me. The number one element is this: focus .... on something. It must be simple and clear enough. That's it, in a nutshell. This sound, to the next sou...

None. I downloaded the Roland piano app when I bought my piano in November but haven't connected it to the piano yet. Don't feel the need, at least at this point. I am fed up with everything being computerised. Too many screens. Playing piano, reading sheet music, touching paper ...

This is my schedule, in 30-minute chunks, but I don't follow it strictly - it's just a guide. The actual time I spend at the piano depends on work and other obligations. I don't do any warm-up. I need to devote more time to keeping my "repertoire" fresh and polished,...

Tommy, Thanks for your answer. So I will wait for this (wonderful) shop "La maison du Piano" to get one CA98, and take the time to adjust the sound, as you mentioned. When I tried the CA98 in Paris, there was a lot of climatisation noise (in winter, yes !) in the shop, ...

I'm about a month into my CA98, and really enjoy the sound. Although at first, I was a little disconcerted about Pianist Mode, generally preferring the Sound Mode initially. However, I found that I needed to work on Pianist Mode EQ via the User Tone Control in Sound Settings. Not...

Another aspect of transfer wrecks is a lack of interest in improving the sound of a piece. They will play it once. You tell them there's something you can help them with, say the pedalling. They flip the page to show you the next piece. They may also be glib about errors, just ...
