I think the major point is very judicious pedaling. I was trying to address the technical problems I hear in his recording. Is the piano a Steinway D or something else. How is it actually miked. I haven't gotten to the other recording yet. I'll l

Hi all, Newbie to the forum, part-time teacher, lifelong player. My practice time has taken a hit over the last few years, but I'm always keen to push myself and try learning pieces I thought were beyond my capability. I recently surprised myself in

Two things to try: 1) Have you tested other similar instruments lately to see if they sound similar. 2) Voicing of the hammers may be able to alter the tone to what you prefer.

Hi Tuner, Thanks very much for your input. What do you mean be side play exactly? I would say there is no stickiness or anything like that on the black keys. Do you think key dip could be made more shallow in order to reach the next note that bit qui

Reaper is a nice and cheap DAW. You can download it freely and test it for 60 days. The main drawback is the "Spartan" presentation of the effects. Their GUI is not nicely designed. It comes with no virtual instruments.

Just sent Dave a PM with congrats and kudos. Very authoritative playing. Well scaled and shaped and sensitively rendered, imho. Loved the Debussy, especially. Caught Tim's performance this morning, too. First rate stuff. Also very authoritative

2 cents from a dealer here - the module cannot be upgraded as such, but with today's sampling quality, I think it very unlikely this will ever be 'outdated'. The current sampling is their CFX grand, been around for a few years, and I really don't kno

This thread is totally confusing to me - maybe it should have been in the the non-classical forum, where (I believe) they speak a foreign language. Why is 2-5-1 = ii7 - V7 - I7 (according to the OP)? Is it a jazz thing (or his thing) that you add on

There are a few considerations going to a smaller piano. The first is the sound. I've never actually tried one, so take this info as a generalization, but at 43", the B1 is a fairly small piano, and it won't have as full a sound as a 48" B3

Marie Ito, the woman playing now (and doing quite a nice job) was at PianoTexas with David and me. She's playing the Chopin C minor Nocturne, Op. 48 No. 1. A touch slower than I like it, but pretty convincing. What a superb piece!

Here are my thoughts: If you are used to the Clavinova, you need time to master the action. If I have to play on a Clavinova, I had difficulties too. I know this Chopin etude: do your black keys have enough side play? If not, you are catched betwe

Seems normal for Casio's. They have a reputation for being looser and noisier than the other big brands. It's mainly the plastic key and case construction. You will have more cause for complaint if or when one or two keys start clicking differently f
