Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Jump to new posts Re: Digital pianos which have Velocuty Curves by CyberGene @ 04/27/16 06:12 PM

A possible solution albeit a very awkward one is to use external software with proper MIDI capabilities such as Cubase, switch local control off, program velocity transformations in the software and route the signal back to the piano I am sure somet

I just picked up the Garritan CFX. This is my first virtual piano so am really excited to see what this can do... I don't have much hope for Garritan fixing the pedaling issue based on their track record but we can always hope.

It's fairly easy to have romantic sentiments about a musical instrument. I'm enjoying the personification of a piano looking for an owner, but I cannot help but be concerned about most pianos' ability to compete for owners given the unrealistic stan

I tried the flat fingers today. I got so caught up in reading the music that I found that I went back to what I was normally playing like, curved. Fun to work with a little, sort of out of the box fun.

Nice playing! I didn't attend to the variations of lid open/part open, etc., as, I felt like I was trying to compare apples to oranges. However, I do like all of the open lid recordings better than any of the closed/partially closed lid variants. M

Check the apple App Store I see a free one that appears to be adjustable. Another thought: if you have access to etd: tune a4 to 435 and record it then play back.

Many thanks for your measurements. 60-64 cm seems to be the range for grands and 62-70 cm for uprights. I'm guessing that 5-6 cm is the normal pedal height above the floor. I've only seen kneeroom figures in Steingraeber's brochures: - All grands:

Back to the original question, I've played both (though not recently) and own an Estonia 190 (made in 2005). I like both for different reasons. The SK-2 like all Shigeru Kawais has a very refined sound, it can be a very expressive piano, but what set

I think I've found the easiest version of Bethena that still sounds really nice, yet it's simpler than the version in Mary Sallee's "Simply Joplin" Here's the Book at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Scott-Joplins-Greatest-Composer-Collectio

"it's quite difficult to achieve even if you do have 3 sensors." The difficulty could depend of the keyboard. One of the PianomanChuck's video compares two different 3 sensors keyboards and one need to release the key upper than the other

It depends on the definition. With the instrument itself I don't think you can alter principal shape of the curve, as e.g. making it in a form of 3 discreet steps, but you can adjust the coefficients of the curve pretty widely to accommodate your pla
