Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards

Hi Bosendorff, Thanks for your explanation, very clear. I understand why an advanced pianist would want a piano to sound just like he/she likes it, but for a mere student, as I said, I wish there was a way to invert the process. Of the two degrees of freedom (piano sound and st...

MichaelJK, Figuring out 4 against 3 and other rhythmic challenges is not an “artificial problem”. In order to get to the stage where the notes sound tossed off, a pianist needs to start with the basics of understanding the LH/RH coordination and get the rhythm precise. Not s...

As someone wrote above the future will most probably be very different to what we are seeing today. So trying to make a decision about the rest of your life today is less important than keeping oneself open minded, flexible and able to accept change and find new paths. You can do...

Hang in there Ryan! As children, most of us had at least some of our decisions questioned by our parents, but we still grew up to be parents who questioned at least some of the decisions made by our children. Most of the time it turns out ok. Best wishes!!...

Glad to see the range of opinions on these models. I spent half a day at a Yamaha dealership a month ago and walked away with a strong preference for the CLP-685. I too was surprised that there was such a difference between the 685 and 675 considering that counterweights were sup...

So what you mean by notation reading is simply having notes written rather than notation symbols and trying to read that while playing? Yes, that I am attempting. And honestly, I know this journey is long, and am enjoying the practice, but doubts creep in. Here is what I have d...

To John Sprung and BDB: Since this thread is about the Opus 102 which is a flat strung piano, your answer is not correct. There are no tenor and bass bridges, there is only a single continuous bridge from note 1 to 102, wherein the top wrapped string (a bichord) is immediately ...

I started a habit of creating active flashcards whenever I finish an assignment, piece or exercise - and then I randomly pop-quiz myself during my breaks in practice. Of course it's always good to review old material once in awhile, but I wasn't prepared for the strong feedback ...

Thank you very much to all for your replies. Sounds like indeed the only way is to play with the curves until they sound right and that this is common to every VST. Too bad that this is highly subjective and I do not feel confident I will be able to do it properly. Thanks again...
