Ah yes. That's just what I was looking for. So lovely. It's hard to hear his piano underneath all the production on the studio albums. And, scorpio, I enjoyed the young man's cover, too. Thanks a lot!

Two things. I think someone may have their board sort settings different (i.e. recent topics are NOT shown first), OR, someone was directed to this thread via Google search. (That's happened to me sometimes.) This thread is almost 5 years old, and

I found that if you manually switch notes in the android version of Tunelab the time out feature doesn't kick in. To do this you touch the note name in the middle of the screen and a keyboard pops up, you then type what note on the one octave keyboar

The back corner of my Harman-Peck grand keyframe is rounded where it meets the back of the una corda spring. (Note that on this piano, the una corda spring is in the bass side, and so the keyframe moves to the left when actuated.) As a result, the u

What packa said is correct. In addition, you must also pay attention to note value or duration: In your example, the E, B and Low E are all half notes. In the upper voice, the E & B is played for the first two counts, and then, the D# is playe

If there are no screws, sometimes music desks like that are just held down with cabinet catches. Others may need to be slid forward or back a bit and they will come loose. We technicians often have to be clever, and sometimes they stymie us.

In LH for the first measure, you would let go of all three notes after two beats and just play one new note for the next two beats. These are all half notes. Another way to think of it: The D# "replaces" the B and E after two beats (thoug
