I have never been able to tune a good temperament in one pass (without corrections and refinements). After hearing at your recordings I am reassured that you are not able to do that neither. And I am not being hostile but objective. Your unisons a

I agree with Rick, Ebay can be a great source but I'd look for pianos within driving distance - 200 miles. I saved a small fortune by buying our piano secondhand but it took 6 months to find the right one. The savings were worth the effort. There wer

Check the Pianoteq users' forum. There are a surprising number of people using the PX-150 to drive it. If you have a suitable computer and speakers (or headphones), I suspect a PX-150 plus Pianoteq is the most "piano sound and touch per dollar

I'm confident that at its price point of $450 US' there's nothing that compares to the wk 7600 for keybed, built in speakers and quality of sounds. AND, it has quite a few features. But in terms of an editor I think it'd be more worthwhile putting

I don't understand. If you tune a barely narrow 6:3, F3G#3 = B3D#4. You set up the m3/M3 relationship based on the size of the octave. And the best sounding octave (here I am only discussing A3A4 and F3F4, but will assume similar spread up to B3B4

To define a word like "music" one certainly does not need a music dictionary. Standard dictionaries are fine for non technical terms. They all seem include the sheet music for a piece as one of the definitions of music. From what people h

The PX-350 will do what you want. It has a full "General MIDI" set of voices, auto-accompaniment, drum patterns, etc. The built-in audio recorder works OK. The loudspeakers are comparable to other DP's in its price range. The connectivi

I do remember my kid played an easy piece when she was younger, The Maiden's Waltz I think. If I remember correctly five octaves would be enough. However, it be more simple than what you're lookin to play.

For $200 I don't see how you could go wrong, unless you hurt your back moving the piano yourself. That's pretty much a give-a-way price in my book. Good luck, and keep us informed!! Rick

Try "score" in Grove (1980), other terms for printed music, notation, engraving, editions. The Harvard Dictionary (2nd ed.) gives Greek derivation of "music," not what we're after.
