The best DP in terms of "accumulating dirt".

What I mean by that is accumulating dissonances while damper pedal is pressed. As you know, on acoustic piano, if you don't release pedal in places where it should be released, it will lead to overall terrific dissonant sound very quick. But with digitals it is not always like that. As I remember, on Kawai CA17 I could play Scriabin's "The Monigetti's album leaf" with right pedal pressed all the time, and it wouldn't result in unbearable dissonance. The was a dissonance, of course, but very slight compared to acoustic piano.
Roland LX series is way better with this component, but I still would like more "dirt" to appear when pedal is used not correctly. It is necessary, cause you have to always remember that pedal is not something you can press in the beginning of a piece and release in the end (unless it's not a piece with a perfect harmony, like Fugue in A Major by Shostakovich).
What DP is the best from this point of view?


Roland LX706

When I first got my MP7SE I did not know about half pedalling ability, so from habit I always pressed fulldown like on/off.
- who designed this s**t slipped my mind
and I turned down settings for damper quite a bit.
Very exaggerated reaction as I felt.

Learning to just use damper properly I turned setting up again.
There is plenty headroom to take this to outer space if you want.

Look for settings is the first thing I would do.
