Just for fun and variation, I sometimes pick a different instrument voice on my DP when learning a new piece. It helps me hear it in a different context, and gives me lots of ideas for dynamics. I've noticed that I have less tension with harpichord

Thanks for the thoughts, James. I don't think Roland would be interested, since the instrument I have in mind would no doubt cut the sales of their C30, which they are still selling. Maybe you could tell any midi experts you know about my plan, to

I wish you a speedy recovery, Johan. Concluded my study of No2 yesterday. It's main feature is a mid-piece modulation to the parallel minor key. Which turns out to be ephemeral and immediately turns into a vi-ii-(I-V7)-I progression. Onto the next o

My impression also is that even cheaper grands as Hailun and Ritmuller will outperform high end uprights. Both sound and action. But as phantomFive writes, you'll have to play them both if you are a music major.

David, While I do know a few engineers with experience developing MIDI hardware, I'm not sure they have sufficient interest in the harpsichord to dedicate their free time to such a venture. To my knowledge Kawai has never manufactured harpsichords

You'll know if rolled chords sound right or not. If not, and you're older than 50 then don't try to stretch! No5hing wrong with dropping a note or two as long as it doesn't have too much impact on the music. Those big dark octaves of Beethoven can

Excellent question, James. Knowing the field of "old music" pretty well, I'd say the demand could be enough to set up a nice little business. But I might wish to go beyond that: the conception I have for this instrument would make it quite

FWIW -- Download the manual, and read it _very_ carefully. The "specs" aren't precise enough for what you need to know. And after reading the manual, I'd ask a salesman. And after that, I'd probably bring my computer into the shop whe

If it were me, I'd ditch the signatures. I'm not a fan of them on musical instruments. I know in some cases that they can increase value, but my gut feeling is that those particular signatures will not, and, as you pointed out, the likelihood of find
