Finale
PX-350 produced MID file.

Opening the MID file up in Finale let me see where I was being lazy with my fingering by showing me ties, where there are no ties in the original music smile I was surprised (pleasantly) that I could review it that way.

Recording as MIDI and being able to view the MIDI file in notation software, is very helpful.

Yes, I do this often to check smoothness of scales and arpeggios, precision of rhythms, etc.

In the piano roll view, you can easily see the imperfections. Example here:

My fingers are slow, but easily keep pace with my thoughts.

If you have software that will also view the MIDI file in "piano roll" you'll get even more information. It looks like a player piano roll on a grid. You get attack, release, velocity, pedal on and off and even half pedaling info if your DP has a continuous pedal (vs simple on/off). I'll look at something and say "Man, I really hit that note hard" or "I rushed that phrase". I've gotten so used to editing MIDI that it's almost as familiar to me as notation.
