Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Jump to new posts Re: Pull-out Stands for Digital Pianos by doremi @ Yesterday at 06:49 PM

The issue for a home hobbyist like me is that no single set up is perfect for the various things I do. For example, at one time I want to play my DP + synth on top, at another time I want to mix/record with a DAW/large computer screen, which ideally

Ok! I've got it now. Sorry for the confusion. The pins are resting in the bushings, which in turn push on the plate and part of the strings's pull is going also to the pinblock which is held by the plate by the surface in contact with the plate. An

It was something that was already invented in the early 1800's and used in some french pianos. http://www.palacepianos.com/en/uploads/pianos/1288966680_jean-henri-pape-grand-4188-4.jpg is one example I think the idea being that it would resist the

Thanks for the feedback.. I'll play with the equalizer function to see if I can get it better balanced. I was mic'ing from the belly of the piano to keep any mechanical sound out. Maybe I'll try to move it to the side to see if that lessens the noise

We don't know if the OP meant just one P&F or the entire Well Tempered Clavier. Obviously, if they meant just one P&F it's easier than the Goldberg Variations. If they meant the entire WTC, then I'd vote for the WTC.

It sounds a bit heavy in the mid-range to me. Also, I hear a lot of mechanical noise. Maybe the mics are too close to the front of the piano or are touching the piano. It sounds slightly distant as well so the gain might be poorly set.

It looks like there are as many differing opinions on fingerings as there are pianists . I've just had a glance at the edition by Godowsky, who gives two different fingerings on the first descending figure, neither of which I've considered......

This sound in this recording comes across as being somewhat muffled. It's not just a case, I don't think, of over-use of the damper pedal; the overall tone quality is not clear. I also have some difficulty with your timing irregularities, but that
