Can you confirm though that it can do note repetition and legato like this one here or even better:

Triple Sensor
(scroll down a bit and select triple sensor, for the demo sounds)

Thanks a bunch... smile
Josh, repetition and trills depend entirely on the action. I regulated mine very carefully and thoroughly which is why the trills are easy. The sensors simply detect hammer velocity.

Ahh, I see. So you did meticulous hardware and software adjustments. Thanks for the feedback!
Hoping to get my hands on my own keybed...

I don't know where the last two months went (well, actually I do: two online conferences, one of which I led, one big tutorial, bought a very nice grand piano and need to arrange the move which is complicated by my wife wanting me to sell the one I have first, a plumbing emergency with a blown up pipe which I fixed myself, and few other minor or not-so-minor things). So, I haven't touched base with Jay (or made progress on mine, which electronically is a clone of his, but mechanically slightly different) since March.

He does post on github when he has a good update. Last time I heard, he was producing sound with good dynamics for one note, and needed "only" to assemble the hardware for 88 of them (the design was already completed for all of them, in my understanding). In fact we were supposed to meet to share some old-grand-piano parts, but that never happened. I told him that if he was ordering more electronics (presoldered PCB) I was interested and that would have reduced unit price and shipping costs, but I did not hear back on that. As soon as I get a moment from being so busy (which I hope will be in a week or two) I will ask him again.

Whoa there! I nearly missed this part. First, congratulations on the new grand!!

Second, what did you get, if you don't mind sharing?

Well, you guys missed it because I wanted to have it in my home before "announcing" (and the logistics is proving to be more complicated than I hoped), but since I have piqued your curiosity I now can't delay. Just make sure you are solidly seated to your chair, because I still fall from mine that I can't believe what I've got!!!

It's a 1930 Mason & Hamlin AA, with some updates (among them new strings and new hammers). I'll post pictures and hopefully a recording, when I'll get it, which as I said is stopped from the sale of what I have now (otherwise the M&H must go in storage for now cry )

Hi CyberGene. I’m not a prolific poster but when I saw the results of your project I just had to leave you a message to say, wow! That is some achievement. I am in awe. Congratulations.
