Rachel has finished the videos for volume 1 of fundamental keys. Hopefully now that she has the process of getting them made figured out, she'll be able to get volumes 2 and 3 (and their associated videos) out with a more reasonable time scale .

You should try out the Kawai ES100, it costs more than the PX350 and the P115 but it comes with a pretty good pedal. The PX350 and the ES100 have a more "realistic" and heavier action than the P115. When it comes to samples it's up to you

I remember that some time ago there was a similar thread (about a Kawai or Yamaha video) and in the end we determined that it was no particular piece, but something the pianist was improvising based on known pieces. This could explain why many think

I have to confess to being ante-Steinway, usually around 1 in the morning. I have never dealt officially with Kawai USA but Kawai James has been amazing on here in helping us MP11 users. He's given us beta firmwares, put us in touch with regional re

In general, if you aren't familiar yet with note values, everything on a vertical line happens together. So if the note is lined up with a rest, or if the RH note is slightly to the right of the LH note, they will not happen together. If you can draw

Entheo, my ear tells me that whatever I get will be many steps above what I have!! I do think the Yamaha is a bit bright in the upper octaves and a bit muddy in the lower. I seem to be partial to yamaha because that's what I grew up laying. I have s

I think the general advice you might get is to try a wide variety of pianos, both used and new, Japanese/American/German, etc. I might recommend that you include the Yamaha YUS-5 on your list. It is not high end compared to a piano from Steingraber o

Locked threads can always be un-locked. If turandot and Norbert feel strongly enough about this, they can petition Ken or Frank and they can un-lock the thread. For the record, we received numerous moderator complaints about the thread long before
