Thanks for posting those recordings Kees. I could not hear any difference between the DOA and the sustain unison. The coloured unison was just out of tune IMHO with a clear beat. In an actual piano, phase matching must also be a consideration.

I don't believe ETDs can measure to the accuracy some of you are claiming. They only measure the frequency of one partial and no two strings have the exact same inharmonicity. I have experienced the effect of clean versus coloured unisons, but the

I've probably mentioned before that I give a monthly recital for colleagues & acquaintances, playing on an ancient 85-key 6-foot C.Bechstein (c 1900). It has a lighter action than my V-Piano, as well as shallower key dip than modern pianos. Onc

Interesting. Seems to me that DP makers have the ideal opportunity to vastly exceed quality of their actions way beyond that which is achievable on an acoustic due to practical considerations regarding their operation.

Composers damning other composers is nothing new. Mozart on Clementi, Brahms on Wagner (and vice versa)...all the way to Boulez's damning of any contemporary composer who wrote tunes .

Until Ron Koval's temperaments surfaced, to introduce someone to WT's you'd use either the Moore or Broadwood's Best. As 'mild' as these are, they produced some 3rds and 5ths which didn't settle well with my customers. After trying many non-ET's, I e
