I'm grateful to bsntn99 for announcing this €25 sale for Production Grand. I've bought this a few days after getting the Garritan CFX lite. They are very complementary and will probably mean I'll never need to get another piano. They cover a lot of ground between them. Garrita...

K.201 is an early masterpiece by Mozart; up there with Symphony no.25 as the best of the earlier symphonies. As well as the marvelous 2nd movement, the 1st movement is fabulous. I don't think I've ever played a Mozart symphony transcription before, but I think I'll have a play ...

Swinging eighths originate from the rhythm of English in its African-American version - a triplet feeling that is clearly expressed in the rhythm of the blues - 12/8 (many African rhythms are on triplet basis). Hence, the written pair of eighths is executed in a ratio of a quart...

Thanks BDB for the reply. Building new pivot blocks is probably the most professional solution...but a little beyond my carpentry skills. I ended up putting a C-clamp around the pivot area that was coming apart. Seems to be working well so far. Knock on wood. It just needed a lit...

The clavia/nord keyboards are indeed nice, but are considerably outside of the OP's budget. I agree that the best option for the OP would be a bit budget keyboard like the kawai es110 or the Roland FP30 driving a computer running pianoteq . Assuming that the OP has access to a ...
