Yes, I have settled with Sam that we can use the software and promised to take care of the thing. But I didn't want to announce it before the August recital is over, so that people won't get confused with so many of them

Nice to read this thread about Acrosonics and see the posted photo. The family piano I learned piano on in the 1950's was an Acrsonic, and I had at least six solid years of practice on that piano in elementary school. I wonder where it is right no

Just my experience. P35 is very difficult to play on the black keys on certain arpeggios and hand positions due to seems to be the fulcrum positioning that is too close to the front which I feel is the case. Even though I understand that it has the

Thanks for the info, Mikegmo. That seems like a great solution; definitely let us know how it works out for you! I'd be interested in something like that for home practicing, which is what I'm assuming you'll use it for, but it does seem a bit large

In the "bootloader" part of the RP100 (90/100/120/150) firmware there are some text strings like REALPIANO * RP100 * BALDWIN * PIANOVELLE RP100 * REALPIANO * RP150 However, this may be some obsolete code, because the firmware is used in RP

There's no clear good answer here. You work in a music store, so dad is confronted with teaching materials most parents never see. And he has a built-in half an hour to look for new books to suggest to you! Moreover, we are all forgetting that in a
