I only work on memorizing chunks after I have worked through the whole piece. I don't seem to be able to memorize anything before I have an idea of the finished product in my mind. This also helps in preventing learning the chuncks in a way that will

I have been learning for 20 months now and bought a Yamaha P105 at the start. I have since tried more expensive DP's and none of them thrill me. While the piano was cheap I did get a little bored of the on board sound and upgraded into VST software a

Even Vika makes mistakes, she made a fairly big one playing some pop songs when she went to Iceland, and a couple playing live in Germany. But she just carries on like nothing happened. I'd note though that anything you see on youtube will probabl

Hi everyone, I'm Josh, I'm 22, and I'm from London, UK. I've been playing piano since I was about 8, but I stopped having lessons after grade 2. I've had the odd spurts of piano lessons here and there throughout the last few years, so you can probab

Jump to new posts Re: 25 Vintage Steinways by joe80 @ Yesterday at 05:53 AM

The question is how much does rebuilding cost in the USA and what would the piano sell for in the end? Here, you can expect to pay 10000 pounds for a clapped out Steinway in need of everything, and perhaps a little less for an 85 note model.

Jump to new posts Re: Wurlitzer electric piano sound by ColoRodney @ Yesterday at 05:23 AM

The Korg SV1 is highly regarded for its Rhodes and Wurlitzer samples, and I found it a joy to play. Plus, it looks cool and retro, and has an actual tube amp built right in for very nice amp simulation.

I tried this side by side with the Kawai ES7 at a local store. The Yamaha was quite usable, but I preferred the sound and touch of the Kawai (which has better speakers but is admittedly heavier and more expensive). I think both are worthy of consider

'Dirty distortion' in the suitcase folder sounds very close to me, especially in the middle zone. It could perhaps penetrate more in the upper register but I suspect it might be possible to do a mod in Kontakt to help with that. You could even spli

I like the lightning fast load times using SSD. Many of the sample libraries will work fine using a conventional HDD but some are borderline, notably when layering perspectives in some of those libraries which have them, so a modern SSD is the best

Shostakovich also published a Children's Notebook. Maybe it's worth checking out, especially if I need to keep my Shosty efforts as a total side dish right now until I have space on my dance card for a more meaty piece. Some of them are really nif

I use an SSD because it's utterly silent. With a fanless power supply, and a low speed CPU fan, the computer adds no audible background noise to the piano. Though the piano operates fine with an ordinary hard drive, an SSD's speed may help with loadi
