I just tried out a Roland GP-607 -- very impressive!

I tested a peculiar resonance that shows up in some (not all) acoustic pianos:

. . . If you hold down "C" sliently, and play "D" (one tone higher) staccato, the "C" rings at its own pitch.

Roland got that one right. All the other resonances were there, too.

I also thought, in the octave above C-above-middle-C, "Oh, that's the metallic sound people complain about!" --

. . . but I checked, and the "Brightness" setting was 10 !

With "Brightness" at 5, the "metallic sound" seemed to disappear.

It's _so_ nice to have a continuous damper pedal . . . <g>

This was all through headphones; I have no idea what the speakers sound like.

I checked this video and I think it sounds much better when the sound comes from its internal speakers, because that big room has much natural resonance. When in the video you notice the switching to LINE OUT the piano sounds very very dry to me (and when the sound is too dry, maybe is good for pop music, but it's not realistic).

So, I think one thing digital piano makers could improve very much is on the reverb algorithms (for headphones listening, or for LINE-OUT/WAV/MP3 recording).

About this:

. . . If you hold down "C" sliently, and play "D" (one tone higher) staccato, the "C" rings at its own pitch.

I think that D should not resonate when C is held, because it's not sympathetic with C... But maybe some higher overtones could resonate if the D note is slightly detuned... Or maybe in an acoustic you hear the resonance of the always undamped strings, or maybe the aliquot resonances...
