Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
dire tonic: I've re-tested with the N.I "The Grandeur" - 0.25ms (a quarter of a millisecond, just to rub it in ;^) In case it matters, I'm using max velocity on the highest C - note number 108. Sorry I hadn't read your original post prope

Hi Pianoworld, I have been playing the piano for the last 10(ish) years. I am currently working towards my ABRSM Grade 7 and have just started getting really bad back pain. I'm only 15 so it wouldn't be anything age related but I think it may be ten

Hi! First of all, I beg you be patient with my English, as it is not my mother language. Piano hammers stroke the string at about 1/7 - 1/9 from the tuning pin, if I'm not mistaken. This is to avoid 7th, 8th and 9th partials. I have two questions:

I would buy a five octave keyboard with an F-f''' compass, but predominantly to play classical music. I already have a Roland digital harpsichord (a C20) but this is not light, and for the last 18 months I have had to use a wheelchair. My piano is on

Someone mentioned that before Liszt, pianists would play with their back to the audience. But if this was true, the piano lid would aim the sound in the wrong direction! ?????

And it's a good piano, with great feeling action. It better be for $75,000! However, it's tone sounded better when I was in the audience, listening to someone else play it. When I played it, it was not bright enough for me. Maybe I've been spoile

I admit to being somewhat flighty. Unless there's an immediate attraction, I do tend to lose interest. Of course if I see someone else playing with you wonderfully, then sometimes I do get curious and try to patch things up and make a come-back.

@sullivang Depends on where the mic was placed (in Pianoteq). So, of course there is latency even in the offline. Other than that, physically the soundboard needs time to resonate after the string was hit and the string itself needs time to convert

Buy the best you can afford, no matter the brand. If you are taking lessons on an acoustic, buy one with heavy keys. If it's just for pleasure and you don't have a serious goal on music, they'll all suit you.
