Hmmm... at this point it's as if I've canceled out other brands, but I definitely haven't ! I'm all for playing with VSTis, believe me, but 1. I don't want to miss out on the RD-800s customization features. (I'm not sure where VSTis stand in cust

Both strategies are rational but I'd say to worry about a failure of your system to be able to play VSTis once you have it up and running is to take fear to a morbid extreme, lol! The $700 saving would buy the extra components, no? OK, with the mod

I would suggest taking a look at a x30 generation Casio Privia, such as the PX-330 or PX-830. It may help to know your maximum budget. Best of luck! James x

It'd be awesome to be able to just sit at my piano, and start playing hearing the sound I want to hear.. But who wouldn't want that? I usually play for awhile.. Well, I suppose it can't be helped. Regardless of whether or not I choose the RD-800, or

If you mean close the lid, no, I don't think any laptop will stay active with the lid down. You could disable or blank the screen (some have the command assigned to function keys). But in any case it's great to have the laptop there and ready to me

Yes a lot of people have been telling me how superior they are. I do ! Haha I love keeping my laptop close and all.... but does it have to be open to work? Like, can I close the screen on my laptop or anything and the VSTs still run?

- yes you're quite right about the lowest G - it's very evident. A spectrum analyzer confirms the rogue harmonic at around around 4khz - most noticeable when playing the adjacent notes. The funny thing is, some libraries earn dubious praise by virt

Nice to know you're all almost set to play and to do the record (and this time, I bet Digital will win). On the contrary, I'm not in the right mood to do a (decent) record - not even to play... -, so I decide to wait some days to try again. The piec

Thank you, CL! Hope to see you in December. Be sure and make a reservation if you intend to come to the concert—it usually sells out, the salon only holds 100 people! Or 50 if you have the Kiss revival band and a bride with a really big dress.
