Jump to new posts Re: which sound card for using Kontakt with Yamaha YDP-181 by Alexander Borro @ Today at 02:11 PM

First thing, I think one of the issues the Yamaha YDP-181 has no USB to host. You can either buy a Midi to USB adapter and connect your piano to a USB on the PC, a quick check would seem to suggest this one for the yamaha, http://www.amazon.co.

Thanks Ed, Robert; this is from a reputable dealer who gives a warranty for their used pianos. I wouldn't have a problem paying a tech to take a look at the piano, but I wonder if any tech I would hire would probably know the dealer and either a) not

It could also indicate that the piano has suffered some stress from humidity swings, but as Ed has stated, that is best checked by an experienced piano technician. It still could be a very nice piano. Robert.

@patH, a grand piano is not necisarily meant to fill a concert hall. A CONCERT grand piano is meant to fill a concert hall. There's plenty of grand pianos that have a smaller sound than an upright.

Why wouldn't an 8 measure piece a capella be natural? When I make up scraps of music to hum around the house, they're short and a capella. Bird songs are short and a capella. It may be that short a capella tunes are difficult to pin down the key i

Hmm, for me there are two things going on. The first is: is it cheating? No, to me it's not. It's a student reaching out to a teacher for a learning moment. It's not a test; it's a study guide and studying from studying guides can take many diffe

After listening to a few measures, and without reading the other replies, I came to the conclusion: B is live, A is MIDI. Reason: A sounds like single notes being played, B sounds like phrases.

Probably not a big problem. More significant would be the condition of the bridges, pin-block, and glue joints between ribs, soundboard and rim. It would be wise to engage the services of a skilled piano technician to evaluate the pianos condition.

Yes, the sound of a grand piano can be quite overwhelming. But one thing to consider: Grand pianos are designed to fill concert halls. So they are powerful. Do you live in a house with lots of space and good sound isolation? Then a grand piano is no

Like the comments above, the B version is superior to the A version. I was listening to the balance between the voices in the B version. With that said, the points that 8 Octaves and hreichgott made are correct. One can do some incredible things w

Chris's advice is excellent. It is probably more important to find a piano technician who is skilled in tone regulating than trying to find another new piano that works better. All pianos get brighter with use. Most new pianos made today use hamme

I'm just wondering why the Alfred's book (Adult all in one Book 1 p. 66) teaches the the chords in C Major are I, IV and V7? Why the V7 instead of just V? Or is it completely interchangeble (which I assume it would be). And it if is interchangeable,

Hi Ozan Prepping is the key word for you. Firstly, I think if you had a good technician service your piano, telling him exactly how you want it to sound and feel, then you will never again consider changing your K5 silent - they're good pianos, v
