It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
By practicing 40hrs/day one makes pieces look easy.
Help me Obi Wan, you're my only hope!
Maybe it's Doc Brown you should invoke, and get him to bring the Delorean around, so you can go back in time and practice alongside your self from that time. There are twice as many hours in the day that way ...
Roland FP-30, Roland E-28, Pianoteq 6.5 (Bechstein DG, Grotrian, Steinway D, K2)
You're obsessed with me, aren't you? Just to remind you, lack of arguments isn't an excuse for insulting your opponent. I'm not OK with your silly comments and the next time you do that I will report you.
Opponent? Takes two, some say. Can't disagree that claiming (apparently relentlessly) that one's good, long time friend produces crap product (but is improving, though!) is unusual. Wouldn't he at least (Philippe) be at all miffed, then? Not necessary, for a non-zealot. TF's impertinent upstart 2c.

OK, maybe you will have to stay out of the kitchen for a while.
Temperatures fine for me (obviously), but I'm game. No veiled personal attacks but able to give opinions without fear of reprisal. I actually respect a lot of what you say, you know a lot about many things. (maybe not Pianoteq- ok I kid I kid) So I am hoping to learn from you as well.
I left off on this at around 11 AM ... because boss-man actually expects us to spend at least **part** of the day doing work. And now I come back to find that I've missed out on a batch of interactive hilarity ...

Wait, guys, you really reported MY thread, because two kids here throw fits over a piece of software? What about this: let's all of us refrain from posting here until I get my grubby mits on P-515 (that's happening tomorrow, but sadly I have a group meeting so not sure if the delivery won't be postponed to Thursday), I will post my impression and whether I'm satisfied and we can discuss the specifics of Yamaha P-515 then...
I suggest that ChopinAcolyte should start a new thread, when he's wrung-out his P515.
This thread was meant to let you guys give me some advice about a DP that would suit my needs (in terms of touch) and also share my thoughts after I settle down for something. But if you don't want to hear it, I can keep the aftermath for myself.
As an observer, it seems to me the thing blew up because person A is saying person B's professed view is UNQUALIFIED, so should be silenced. And person B insists he's perfectly within his rights to express it here, and refuses to accept A's right to tell him to shut up. There's an attacker, and a defiant defender. TF's view.
I know I'm not a saint and I know that my attitude towards stuff (in this particular case Pianoteq) is sometimes harsh and is usually the cause for other people to get triggered and start a heated debate. However I always try to keep emotions and personal attitude aside. Whatever I say is just my opinion about a software based on experience with it and my understanding (or misunderstanding to that matter) about how it works. And while I'm usually tolerant towards verbal ridicule and insults, it's now getting a trend for Pianoteq fans to use personal insults and discuss my own persona. Franky I wouldn't bother but that situation is repeating itslef and I would prefer if that won't turn into a norm. I've been referred to as "brain dead" and "madman" in this thread, as well as my nickname being intermixed with Koresh and whatever. It has been suggested that it's better if I was silent and do no express my opinion. It could have been funny in another context but not now.
