The quick and easy way is to just use the USB port. Your PC has one, your DP has one, done. You would use the USB to Host port, BTW. The other USB connector is for a thumb drive. Wifi MIDI s#cks - sorry to the wifi MIDI fans, but it does. If

I would use 53 - 42 - 31 - 21. There are many ways of creating a legato effect. Connect the top notes here, and don't worry about using the thumb twice on the lower note. -J

I'd never heard of the 'Circle of Fifths' until I came upon it in PW . (I learnt theory from my piano teachers as part of the ABRSM exams, then later for school music exams that I also did). And personally, I think it just makes it all more complic

Hello. Long time lurker, first time poster. I'm learning Schubert's Hungarian Melody right now, and it's almost entirely within my grasp, technically speaking. But I'm having trouble with one part that seems like it should be easy. Here's the sco
Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Basically, MIDI, MIDI-over-USB, or maybe Wi-Fi? I know I could go MIDI-to-MIDI and that has the advantage of no ground loops but the disadvantage of requiring a MIDI dongle for the PC. I think CLP-585 and other Clavinovas might have MIDI-over-USB.

Excellent. I'm neck deep in some ragtime right now. I have a little place in my heart for stride piano anyway, haha. Extra points for those numbers that have familiar lyrics for those that want to sing along. Gershwin is a winner, too. I'll h

Hi, Michael! This was genuinely beautiful, both in terms of sound and in the emotional quality: a sweet-sad resignation. Thanks for sharing this!

Roland fa-08 is a workstation? I think I don't need a workstation but I'm not sure. I use cubase when I want to write songs. I like full band music, so will I never use the benefits of a workstation? I'm prety sure I need a stage piano. I would love

sounds like you are trying to go from somewhere less than 110bpm to 160bpm in too short a time. You should consider that you will be playing scales for the rest of your life so what is the rush to get to a fast speed in a few weeks? Our fingers tend

Ya, fair enough. Roland's FA-08 should be in the running. I'd love to put in the RD800, but it's over budget.
