Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Jump to new posts Re: Is it worth waiting for the forthcoming Yamaha new DPs? by NotaBene @ 11 minutes 28 seconds ago

Now about the hard bottoming and the excessively poorly adjusted keybed leading to huge lateral movement of the keys, the absence of a proper damper mechanism, hence the loose spring on the damper pedal, the fact that the samples are old, that there

What is the purpose of the all the inexpensive tuning apps for smart phones and tablets, marketed for tuning pianos? Can they really be used for tuning pianos, considering they don't take inharmonicity into account (with a few exceptions)? How good w

As with everything with piano IMHO I think it is good to practice our weakness's not our strengths. However after 10 days I would not expect you to be able to think about reading, rhythm, fingering, as well as counting all at once, so no surprise you

Thank you For Your answer. My problem is that since I am at a good level I don't know if it is better to spend less for an upright thinking to a grand piano in the next years or spend more to get a very good piano like u1 or k500. Another possibility

I would assume that if the core wire is not standard piano wire, the inharmonicity calculator may not work properly. I tried looking up the source of that calculator, but it led back to the assumption that piano string vibration is periodic. That fl

Between different acoustics and between different digitals is far greater. Imo. . Particularly when assessing the digitals through headphones. . . In fact, Id go so far to say that, through headphones there is little difference between em tonewise

I've been musing over the notion of a recital in C minor (with slow "movements" in Eb), since many of my recent pieces have been in C minor. I'm curious as to whether any of you have thoughts on this approach generally or suggestions as to

I still do not know what you mean by notes not sounding. Do you mean that if you play some of the notes as soft as others, they do not sound? Do you mean that sometimes notes do not play at all, that the key goes all the way down and the hammer does

If you have a smartphone, try using TimeGuru metronome. It can randomly silence out clicks/beats, so you have to train you inner metronome. You can increase gradually. It is not as boring as constantly hearing the metronome clicking topic on Time
