I think you can pick whatever you want, because sooner or later you will buy both, an acoustic and a digital smile. So if you buy an acoustic is ok, because later you will buy a digital. But if you buy a digital, is ok, because later you will find you want to buy an acoustic. If you choose the digital first, as a library I suggest the Garritan CFX,

a) with microphones at ear position in a normal living room (20 m2),
e.g. wiht Adam A7X for stage pianos, and

b) and in parallel, the internal MIDItoWAV recording to USB.

Then the customers would have a good hint to begin with, how the DP could sound, and even properly compare different models.


Please tell me how you think that a midi file played on anything else than the digital instruments in question could be of use?

I want to play not only with headphones, but I expect that quality of speakers in digital pianos isn't the best... What do you think about this?

How many You Tube videos are uploaded at 720P? Only with this will the audio be useful for comparison purposes.

That rule is not as set in stone as you may think .. these days, see here

http://www.h3xed.com/web-and-internet/youtube-audio-quality-bitrate-240p-360p-480p-720p-1080p

which what I find too in practice. There are quite a few factors involved, a video at 720p may still have rubbish audio, not trying to state the obvious but it follows, if the upload was poor, and vice versa, if the upload was done in high quality the back end of youtube will give you the best it can do. A 420p video could actually contain fairly decent quality sound bitrate and youtube will extract if it is there depending what was uploaded.

Standards are changing all the time year on year and improving.

Beemer / Ian,
I dont understand your question.
I am just talking digital pianos. A MIDI file could be used as a reference accross DPs, as DPBSD...mid is.

Hoppyfrog - yes, there is my playing - https://www.youtube.com/user/niezapominajka90/videos
Pold - you're right - I could use both digital and acoustic smile The problem is that I can not find a GOOD used upright piano (I'm looking for a long time).

I heard your piano version of Queen "Love of my life", that was amazing! You should record it with a nice mic, if you have a Zoom H6 and RODE NT1-A you can get professional quality.

Thank you:) It's a very unprofessional recording - I used a digital camera. It's not my grand, I don't have access to this instrument, so now recording something new is impossible.
Returning to the topic: I would be grateful, if pianist who has got Kawai MP 11 share audio with sound from studio monitors.
