Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
You may be right. The 150 may be sufficient to spend practice time on and when it's time to track, use a VST (I looked at Galaxy Vintage D and have used Pianoteq sometimes). I don't even need or want many of the features that are on most boards, incl

I'm partial to the CP4 . Best substitute non-piano I've found for jazz yet. I used both Nord Pianos, NP88 and NP2, for close to 4 years. It was a love -hate relationship. I put up with the Fatar action. Once I got the CP4 everything was SO much easi

Top graph staccato, lower legato. Point being he plays staccato louder. That's the only difference. Sorry Tom, I hadn't realized the ABF had become a pissing contest, and of course Mr Presser, I'd happily tell that to his face!

So in brief: 1) You bought a Kawai, and it had a fault so you had to ship it off for repair. 2) Then you bought another instrument and after 20 months it was also faulty and had to be replaced. 3) Then you bought a VPC1 and the pedal malfunctione
