There is still the power of public opinion and customers buying or deciding not to buy. And a lot of warranty repairs and bad word of mouth to be easily avoided. There would also be the possibility to fit a better sound module inside the MP7/MP11 an

Sorry for the double-post. Some resources you may want to check into: Try copying some Bach keyboard music. Note for note onto staff paper. This was what J.S. assigned his children to do when teaching them composition. Do a few inventions and you'll

I don't quite get the 8gb ram requirement since it's usually determined by Kontakt and its preload buffer. So, if you've a fast drive (any SSD) it should be possible to dial that down somewhat, maybe even a lot. A min 2.4ghz cpu would put me on the

It sounds good but in addition to being quite expensive, it has very high minimum requirements. I don't know how many people have at least 8 GB of RAM. The 2-3 PCs/tablets devoted to music that I use have no more than 4GB. So I should use one of the

Thank you James. I found the Kawai CN-14. Are KDP90 and CN-14 identical? The logo seems different, also I can't see a red strip on the CN-14. Otherwise, they look the same.

The head of the stick should not have any ledges. It must taper smoothly in both forward and backward directions otherwise it will always catch on wires and things when moving it around. Could the chopstick have one end wide to fit between tri-chord

To recap my point about practicing slowly when you first start playing hands together you need to Work with incredibly small chunks or music. It may be a single mesure or less. Practice slower than you can possibly imagine. It may be 15 seconds for

One perspective on the various keybeds - reading over in the acoustic piano forum, one will quickly see that there does not seem to be agreement on what keybed is the "right" one. There is a lot of variability among acoustic keybeds and ho

I'm afraid to say that I have the G4 phenomenon on my MP7 too. I actually noticed it as soon as I switched it on after buying it, but wondered whether it was associated with the acoustic resonance of the room that it was situated in. Of course, sin
