(I'm in there, and would be interested in more suggestions and opinions.)

Asked by Gala Hendricks:
"What digital piano, played by a good pianist, can transmit musicality, clarity, sonority? Which digital piano is the closest to an acoustic piano?"

Added by me:
I would love to know this too -- especially if we add the factor of having a touch and sensitivity of the keys closest to a good acoustic grand.

This is an up-tempo waltz for violin and piano in the Hungarian style. I wrote this piece a long time ago, back in 1983 to be precise, but it has never been peformed in public before, though. The hand-written score was in my drawer all the time, now I have entered it in Musescore and uploaded it on the IMSLP for anyone who might be interested. The synthesized Musescore recording can be found in the tab entitled "Synthesized/MIDI".

Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
08/13/18 08:40 AM
Hello all,
After months of trawling Youtube etc to find the most ideal piano to render midi files, I have decided to post a challenge to anyone who is willing to participate. I have most of the Synthogy Ivory II Pianos and the Garritan CFX packages. I have recorded a midi file using a Yamaha Disklavier Grand Piano. I would like to upload the midi file along with my rendered version using the Ivory II American D (complete with screen shots of settings etc)

I am hoping that we could all post versions of the same midi file using the Ivory American D (including screen shots of settings) so that we can try to find the most ideal and realistic.

Would anyone be interested to participate? If so I will then work out how to upload these files into a new Post(!)

Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
08/12/18 08:12 PM
I just installed ivory ii, grand piano, on a new MacBook Pro. And before long I noticed that the c and c# above middle c produce a clinking sound when pressed hard. It sounds a little like a tambourine being shared in the background for each of those notes..

The sound seems to be present on the Steinway samples too, but it’s less pronounced.

I wrote to ivory about the issue but haven’t heard back yet. Anyone else have this problem? Or a solution?

Hi, what are the differences between types of Yamaha hammers, in particular Yamaha NN and Yamaha K marked hammerheads? I have been led to believe that the K is considered to be a higher grade, but I have no info.

I have just added to my Baldwin collection a medal that the Baldwin Piano Company won in St. Louis in 1904. It was during the famous 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition (Worlds Fair) and Olympics. This is one of two awards that Baldwin won. PARIS Grand Prix 1900, and St Loius Grand Prize 1904. These are the two claim to fame awards Baldwin printed images of the awards inside their pianos and also in the casting of the plates you will find these awards and dates. This medal (Award) appears to have been in Cincinnati, Ohio since 1904. The Company was based in Cincinnati, OH for many years. I would believe it would have been at the Baldwin Office/Factory for several years before becoming private owned. Any thoughts or ideas on value?
Thanks, David

I was just wondering if anyone had any recommendations on humour that is piano related?

Just the other day I came across some absolutely hillarious and very well done video acts of Victor Borge. I can't believe I've never seen then before - it's obvious that I've been living in a cupboard.

For those not aware of what I'm talking about:




Just wondering if there are any famous, infamous or not well known pianoist commedians out there, or comedy sketches that are piano focused?
