Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Jump to new posts Re: Roland FP-30 review + nekkid pics by Jay Roland @ 04/26/16 12:29 PM

Either way, it's a sensor placed under the key that makes the sound. not something that the Hammer at the end of the key does. The hammer is there to provide a sensation of an acoustic. Not to trigger a note. I didn't explain myself clearly. With t

On the 2 pictures, we see the key pushing the hammer action. But nothing pulling this action. Then I think the hammer could move independently from the key. The main factors I see which could stop the trajectory of the hammer seem to be the weight o

There's some slight confusion here. It's not whether the key or the hammer activates the sensor. I suppose it's always the hammer. It's about whether the hammer can move independently from the key and activate the sensor with the key partially presse

I would argue that its not the same bass motion you see in piece's like Dido's Lament because the moving voices are not in the bass. As jjo correctly pointed it out its the tonic moving to a Maj 7th (above the bass), Min 7th, Maj 6th, Min 6th. While

Most digital pianos produce sound through speakers. This isn't very realistic since cabinet and speakers might not recreate what you will experience when playing a real grand. Then there are Yamaha TransAcoustic and Kawai K 500 ATX 2-f pianos. They

I can see no reason why the key need be attached to the hammer. The backlash of the "hammer" would push the key ack up anyway. Now then. You are the obvious guy to actually do this! And. I m behind you all the way. . .

I just noticed the Debussy class is part of the senior academy so I guess I'll be doing that. David Clenman's classes are always fascinating. I'm very glad he is back and, hopefully, well. I've missed him. I just added Michelle Mares' Romantic Repert

Hi, Joe80! Well, I enjoyed this presentation one heckuva lot! You bring a full-blooded Romantic style to this piece, and quite frankly I think this approach serves Op 110 very well indeed -- it emphasizes the ecstatic "highs" that I think
