With respect to your graphic, you still have not offered me a definition of hold or the other terms as you would refer to them - you have only given me their order. Define your terms and then I can clearly understand what you are saying. And now

So a guy walks into a bar one day and he can't believe his eyes. There, in the corner, there's this one-foot-tall man, in a little tuxedo, playing a tiny grand piano. So the guy asks the bartender, "Where'd he come from?" And the bartender'

Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Hi, I have Synthogy Ivory II and I'm not very impressed with the sound. I think it sounds very "harpsichordy", ringy and synthetic. I've tried almost all the presets, and I like none of them. I run it on a Asus X73BY, 4 GB RAM, soundcard no

Yes, it would be incredibly helpful to know what questions to ask - and potentially, what answers would indicate a piano in good condition. I am sure I can figure out most of that, but the more technical things might be difficult. Thank you so much

Personally I would spend a little more and go for a seperately powered hub, unless you know the devices you are going to use work off bus power as over the years I have plenty devices that should have worked on bus power but didn't. It is also future

AHDSR (attack, hold, decay, sustain, release) is often discussed in the synthesiser world. In the piano world, we deal with the AHDS primarily in the condition of the hammer [and the design of the board/rim], and the R as the condition of the dampers
