Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
I think original RD-700 was released back in 2000 or 2001. Back then 64MB ROM was considered big. At around the same time, the original Motif had only slightly more than that. I agree that virtual instruments on laptop would give you a lot better so

Then I would advise a 10-20 yer old C6 or C7 or a new Chinese 7ft+ grand. The best value options. But you could find a great deal on an old Bluthner/Bechstein/Bosendorfer and a good rebuilder.....just make sure they know how to finish it to a high st

And I do know my closest dealer is also a respected tuner and technician. They can give good advice, but in my experience everyone who sells pianos is not really objective in their advice. And I'm weird in the sense that I'm considering an expensive

Yep purely modeled from math. As a counterpoint Truepianos is a hybrid modeled from initial samples. Love it for mixes not solo piano work. Unfortunately it seems no more work is being done on it.

Spring-type clothespins. They're scattered all over the music room. I think every Manhasset has a couple clamped to it. They will definitely anchor more than a few pages at a time. Larry.

Another point worth remembering, with such a large room, is that used grands are similar to some other items in that the small to medium sizes are more expensive than the very large ones. So you can get some amazing deals on 2.8 metre concert grands.

If anyone would care to give a quick explanation of how a splice is done, I would be really interested to know. Not because I intend to do it! I would just be interested to know.

Music page holder--four prongs. Can be positioned with a few pages free to allow page turns. For large books, place the inner prongs only several dozen pages back, and it will still hold the book open. http://www.the-music-store.com/store/ind...CFdM

Headphones pose a recurrent challenge to piano VSTs. While no VST piano sounds exactly like an AP in any direct listening situation, the difference seems mitigated when using speakers. Part of this mitigation is probably the result of VST designers t
