Thanks Rich, I enjoyed the video. One of my piano teachers taught group lessons on an assortment of digitals. I always picked the Clavinova because it had the nicest touch and a great selection of rhythms and voices. There is a whole selection of things to work on and use with digitals that are great fun and relieve boredom. After our little group successfully finished a piece, we would pick different instrument voices and play like a 5 or 6 piece band. It was really enjoyable.
That is a bunch of fun, for sure, j&j.
It occurs to me that I should mention that choosing a digital piano does not mean that you do not appreciate a fine acoustic piano. I have many clients who have and enjoy owning and playing a fine acoustic piano, but also own a digital piano for silent play, for recording and play back, for occasional moves from the basement to the bedroom (or to a vacation spot). I also have a number of clients who move to a digital (or a hybrid) simply for space considerations and are happy with their performance. Lastly, my largest number of Clavinova clients are getting their first piano. We offer trade up to an acoustic and this is an entry level first instrument for their family.
Electronic instruments are indeed a lot of fun and very nice to try to compose music. I have a program called Reason by Propeller heads that essentially is a virtual rack system stored on your computer that has drum machines, arpeggiators, effects, VSTS- great for hip hop and electronic music.
I know Reason Studios. I would never have taken you for a hip-hop electronic kind of guy.
Color me surprised at your musical diversity!
