So that’s what it took to stop the madness:
Short (pivot) is the new long (in a parallel universe).

End of discussion!



Now it’s on to short vs. long decays: I hear Casios are loopy. grin

Discuss amongst yourselves!

No, in the parallel inverse universe they actually prefer keys feeling heavier near the fallboard. So, they like them short, in their words "long".

Though if "near/far" is also inverted then they don't. So, they like them our "long".

But if "prefer" is also inverted then they actually do want them our "short" and their "long".

See what you started! 🤪

This does get weird for us, but then for “them” this would be normal, right?

Okay, I believe we need our preeminent expert in ‘reverse/inverse language coding’ (CG) to chime in:


He is terrible.....or is it terrific? crazy

You’ve nailed it, CG!

This solves our paradox: we’ll meet them aliens halfway (stay with me), so that short is not long, and long is not short, but rather ‘shlong’; which means both short and long!

Right is not wrong, but rather ‘rong’. (Okay, that one doesn’t work very well, but still it’s better than nothing).

White is not black, but rather ‘whack’..........!

Hey Pete, why not invite CG to meet you at the Canyon Diablo Crater in Arizona.
The aliens frequently show up there.

CG: That's a long flight from Bulgaria. But be assured that there's lots of social distancing at the crater site.
And the aliens don't carry the virus. So it's quite safe.

After watching the Fargo TV-series I wanted to visit Minnesota. But then I read about Minnesota Nice. And it’s not that tempting anymore. So, yeah, Arizona sounds good!

Haha! It's even worse with me: I'm a beginner and haven't even received my NV10 yet, and now I'm sitting here googling VSTs because some people keep writing about those...

However, I'll stick with the on-board sounds. Definitely.

I think.

I am curious, why you are replacing your K300 Aures with an NV10? Surely not because of GAS right smile

Scratch that. I just read your reason in another thread. Carry on and enjoy your NV10.

Thanks, major_key_minor! GAS may play a role in this whole upgrading game of mine as well. :-)

I know that all too well. I have over $5k in camera equipment (Sony A7II, Sony A7III, SEL5518Z, DJI Mavic Air etc) sitting in my apartment that i rarely use. At the time of purchase, i thought photography was going to be my next big hobby but after a few weeks of intense photography, i mostly now just use them when travelling which is not very often. Smh.

Let me know when someone finds the cure for GAS because i sorely need it smile

Indeed. That, coupled with not knowing what you're doing, is how you end up with a Williams Allegro for 5 years. Not that I would know anything about that.

I have, on a wholly unrelated note, made decisions in the past that I regret.

Surely playing a Williams Allegro for 5 years would impart some sort of Piano related super power..

It's like working in a coal mine, you get black lung, but builds Muscles ?

It results in a Krakowiak, a big time concerto, unusual fingering prowess, and putting a coin on the back of your hand. And also the belief that all keyboard instruments are exactly the same, therefore to be played with the same technique. Finally, a love for even the most obscure DP brands, forcing you to place your $20k premium upright acoustic piano into storage, never to be used again.
