As usual the topic is morphing around a bit. I am thinking that setting the temperament within a 5th is another one-man horse - I'm the only one that rides it. I got goofing around with inharmonicity numbers one time and came up with some figure f

I'll be travelling a lot more this year and it's not feasible to lug around a suitcase full of music books, so I'm thinking about making the move to an iPad Pro 12.9 and the Forscore app. But it's a pretty pricey investment - between AUD$1200 - $1600

Theory - I hardly mentioned it if at all. I am all for theory. I am just saying to get the student interested, hooked if you will and teach all the theory you want or need to while the student is playing songs. I also did not mention theory most lik

I haven't played LX-17. I was prepared to travel to Cambridge to try one but ruled it out based on my feelings about the PHA-50 action. I'm changing direction somewhat and may decide to return to a furniture type piano. At the moment it's CS11 (or p

If only a few 12ths were beating, then the octaves you used to expand the temperament were not consistent, and/or the temperament was not equal enough. As Chris mentioned, the 12ths are fantastic for checking even expansion of the temperament. They a

I think one would need to measure the current foams' compression under loads and go for something more dense - not compressing to more -or less- than what it does now under load or else possibly the sensors won't like it

The most piano-like experience on a DP I've ever had was playing a Kawai CS11 a few days ago. Volume set to two thirds or three quarters. Headphones off. Dig into those keys and the thing comes to life. It moves the air and fills a room like nothing

Interesting. I'm pleased for you. It also indicates that the new GEM must be more or less the same thing as the old GEM, if the main boards are interchangeable. As advanced as General Music was in its day, things have come on since then.

Thanks. Yes, possibly. And it would compress over time I guess anyway. I could really tell that they have put a lot into the development of that action. The feel is really quite different. It just wasn't for me, which was a disappointment. If I'm hon

Nice write up EssBrace! I wonder if that percussive stop you want could be achieved by replacing the foam strip on the PHA-50's front rails.

I should mention also that there are other methods for tuning good and consistent octaves, but since you started looking at 12ths I though the method I mentioned would be a good start and good for training the ear to really listen to the quality of t

Tuning like I said will produce a reasonable degree of stretch in the octave, and do it consistently. You may find it difficult to tune 12ths because it is wider than a hand reach. It will be necessary for a hand to leave the lever and play a note t
