Many of you know that I've retired and moved to Pennsylvania. The move has been an ordeal because of health ... bad knees and bad back. But the house is mostly set up now and the physical pain has eased a bit.

We're loving it here in the north Pittsburgh suburbs, but I've been suffering from piano withdrawal. I've not touched the piano in nearly a month and I'm suffering.

I can't claim that my condition can compare with that suffered by those with substance dependencies. But the feeling is real. I've never felt the like.
For weeks my focus has been on setting up house, so I had no urge for the piano. But with that work mostly done the withdrawal symptoms started rather suddenly early this week.

So what's the problem, you might ask? Just take a seat and go for it, right? Nope ...

The movers hauled our stuff from Raleigh on Nov 24, and delivered the load on Nov 30. The piano quickly took it's place in my new office/piano room. But I couldn't find the power cord! No soup for you! frown

Before the move I neatly placed that cord in a jumbo zip lock bag along with the MIDI cables and audio cables and speaker cables and extension cords and power strips and magic fairy dust ...
But which carton is it packed in? There are 253 cartons ... and none of them are marked "here are your gosh darn piano cables".

Well I finally found the box with the cables. Plug it in. Plug it in. At last! Bliss!

No VSTs yet. So the sound is native CLP240 crapola. But it beats nothing.

Kick back relax, retiring and moving are two major stressors.

This is the time to start to enjoy your new lifestyle and house.

You still thinking about buying that acoustic piano:)

You're doing good, we moved 20 years ago and I never did find the cord for the TV. Once things went digital I threw the TV out but never did find that cord.

I moved in October, not as far as 3Mac. But we moved boxes ourselves for a couple of weeks and then the movers did the rest. But the stuff we moved is on the bottom of the pile now and it was stuff I tried to take special care with. And as often as I've moved in my life, this time it seemed haphazard and poorly planned with the result that I can't find anything. I did find the keyboard and stand but was missing a couple of screws to put the stand back together. I found the plug but not the pedal. It was just last week that I found the iPad that I use specifically for the keyboard. Sigh.

I'm curious to know if anything at all improved in your playing with the absence?

I remember when I purchased the NU1X and sold my ES7, then I decided to return the NU1X and replace it with a N1X. It was a month without a piano and it was such a pain 😭 What a relief when I finally received the N1X. Imagine having my dream piano (which I still love 100%) after a month of no piano!

Did you love the NU1X, too, or was that just a forgettable fling?

The NU1X was like a dirty mistress and the N1X is your virtuous wife 🤣

I have no plan to buy an NU1X, and you know well that I'm bound to buy an N1X.
So I guess I'll be forced to skip the dirty mistress and stick with the virtuous wife. Woe is me! frown

But you could go for the Asian NV10 instead of the N1X wink


All these years playing and I still consider myself a novice.

So is the NV10 Completely off the table?

I wish I could try an NV10 again now that I've got a bit more experience playing the piano.

God Bless,
David

Acoustics are too loud, no volume control.
