Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Jump to new posts Re: CA95 noisy front rail by Charles Cohen @ 36 seconds ago

Hi Felix, Glad you could hear Dohnanyi's "Widmung". I also play his "Postludium" which is probably the better known piece. I prefer those big romantic surges found in the "Postludium". But I love the "Widmung&qu

It's your call. Find a store that has one on display, and plug it into one of their _good_ digital pianos, and see how you like it. Keep your head in the "sweet spot", right in line with the tweeter. . Charles PS -- another aph

Congrats PB... that's really wonderful. It's virtually impossible to get an accurate sense of how one truly sounds while playing. The mind plays tricks on us, for sure. I find that my pauses are invariably much much worse than I realize for the mic
