Hello I've recently heard about narrower scaled ergonomic piano keyboards and was very intrigued by this innovation.These piano keyboards are principally intended for smaller hands, though it's still possible to play them with large hands ! From

just check it for the weight of touch if you are not a tall and "massive" person, I find some RX2 at 6O g key "weight" (30g up weight) that make keys that can be felt a little slow. I suppose not on all the pianos so it may be be

Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
I played the piano for a couple decades, then stopped for a while as life took over (and the lack of piano at home didn't help). I recently started again, without tendinitis or cramps of any kind (in the fingers or back) even after hours of practice,

What a setup such as the one the OP has in mind would achieve is akin to playing a piano with four hands, i.e. two people in front of the same keyboard. In this situation you only have one set of strings, one damper pedal, etc. One could ask though

There are 2 different sustain, the one that emerges from the attack (as you did see in your graphs) and a thin sustain, clearly the end of a tone, even if it can stay long. You manage the tone with the first, thick sustain. It is a "basic mat

I have to say, out of curiosity I took a quick look at the Dan Coates book. Then I listened to some youtube performances of his arrangements and they are extremely well done! In fact they might be the best I've seen for many songs in the book, I de
Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Just another addition: Piano beginners tend to set the volume slider to low on digitals while compensating that with their fingers. Try using headphones and set the piano volume to the maximum. If it feels too loud, go easier on the keys.

Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Digitals emulate grands, not uprights. This touch weight is measured without damper weight, so first you lift all dampers using the pedal, then you check the key weight. The AP action will get lighter (to about 50 g), but your DP action won't, it do

Don't worry about whether people will enjoy it or not. People like something happening that's human. Besides, if few people watch then you have nothing to worry about. Less red dot concerns. Some pianists might watch and give you tips. Randomly you

I like how you are approaching this. To be a composer, try to be as creative as possible. Take a look at this piece (ignore the pianist, I don't like him), how it is composed. See what ideas you can get from here, especially focus on the different m

I encourage everyone to try broadcasting like this. It's the perfect way to get rid of the red dot syndrome. No one cares that you're making mistakes. And you build an audience and hopefully friends without ever leaving your home.
