Bottom line: My opinion is that I could really care less either way as to whether or not Yamaha will end up adding a simulated "playing off of the jack" feature into their Clavinova line as I certainly will never make use of it. Have foun

Say a piece is played in A-minor; what does that mean in other words than "it depends on the a-minor scale". If someone would explain it more in detail I would be greatful. Thanx!

Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Yes. It depends on how cleverly the re-allocation software works. A few years ago, synths and other keyboards only had 4, 5, 6, or if you were very rich, 8 note polyphony, and you could do a lot even with that - and 16 voices even if it was working i

BlackJack, getting as far as you have in just 8 months with zero musical experience is a pretty big achievement I'd say! It's great and inspiring to see other adults pursue their dream to learn to play an instrument Bud, like Silvia I also enjoyed

The American "bright" sound is very different than the European "bright" sound. The later has a brittle and glassy sound to my ears. The sound in the Horowitz recording is the quintessential American bright that most of us love.

Well again for me it's not about playing. I have neither the talent nor interest in playing classical or anything where the # of keys themselves, even with a ton of sustain, will ever begin to approach 64. It's when I'm recording and possibly using

I prefer tunings on a somewhat regular basis. The technician I use is always on the lookout for regulation and voicing issues that can be tweaked when he visits, and it is much easier to do that when the piano is visited and tended on a regular basi
