Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
6 hours ago
This model of digital piano features 2 pedal inputs, sustain utilizing a standard 1/4" jack input, and a separate, pin jack for the optional 3 pedal lyre unit.

For portability while gigging, I was planning to use both a standard sustain pedal, and a footswitch for optional features (organ rotary speaker simulation, etc.) But unlike previous portable boards I have used, the added footswitch does not seem to be an option in this case. The owners manual only mentions being able to use the optional lyre, which is not practical for quick setup and use at a gig. Moreover, there does not appear to be a keyboard control option for such features other than the optional lyre.

Any P125 users with suggestions? Aftermarket pedal for the pinned input? Or is there something I missed...

Pianist Corner - Non Classical
Yesterday at 06:29 PM
Hello all,

Would anyone know of any classical pieces that have good walking base lines that would challenge my ear. What I'm particularly interested in, is hearing the base line for slash chords. For example, for E minor you might get notes ascending as (G, E, B, E). That's pretty spaced out for the notes, and is somewhat challenging to do.

I want to see if I can quickly hear certain aspects of what the left hand is doing; like distinguishing between the 5ths (the first interval heard in rooted chords) and 6ths (first interval heard in most slash chords). Sometimes you'll even hear a 4th as the first interval if it's the 5th that's in the base of the chord.

With this piece for example (link below), in parts of it you hear the base line brought in under the Emin/G chord, as well as the F/A chord. And there's even a very challenging base line for the Bb/F chord.


Thank you

Legal Issues

So I wanted to perform Warsaw Concerto by Addinsel with another piano or orchestra(maybe I'd have opportunity) but I heard that I might have legal problems with that. Even though the concert would be free. Anyone can tell something about that? I always thought there is no problem with free concerts, now I'm not sure.

Decided to pick up "Une Barque sur l'Ocean" after hearing it in the movie "Call Me By Your Name" (Timothee Chalamet plays the beginning of the piece in one scene, not a good effort, I might add). Finally got to the climax of the piece with those tidal waves of arpeggios in both hands when visions of Hitchcock's "Vertigo" filled my mind! Then listening to the opening credits on YouTube, film composer Bernard Herrmann uses the same chord structure that Ravel employs throughout his piece. "Vertigo" also filled with references to Wagner's "Tristan und Isolde", but I hear so much Ravel in his soundtrack. Any other examples one can share?

Also, I never thought I could play or master "Une Barque", thinking it as difficult as "Ondine" or "Jeax d'Eau".
But once I got through the opening sections of "Une Barque" it really became much easier after chord analysis and carefully reading through each section. One does have to love arpeggios in this piece. But what I once thought was such a daunting piece is now very manageable for me. Yes, still challenging, but now accessible. The summit is now visible!

Casio AP650 Black Digital Piano

I've never seen it cheaper.

I like mine rather a lot. I paid $100 more than that on sale at costco.ca about three years ago.

Must be some kind of a clearance sale.
