Jump to new posts Piano Tuning Simulator by Chris Leslie @ 12/14/14 05:14 AM

I have been developing an app that simulates piano tuning. With it, the user can tune and experiment with tuning a temperament virtually without touching a real piano. The app has a graphic of a keyboard, D3 to A4, and each note can be adjusted up o

Hi, I am a 34-yr old, who has been taking piano lessons for the last 7 years. Despite the long period of training I've undergone, my progress has been relatively modest (managed to clear ABRSM Grade 4 this year) for the time spent. The primary reaso

Thanks for your comments! Regarding the middle section, this may sound like a silly question, but do you think it's too slow because of the "metronomic" tempo or because of how the phrasing/articulation is done? For example, my left hand a

Writing anything is a discipline. It's also 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. Set aside 20 minutes a day when you are fresh and write something. Set aside another 20 minutes a day and analyze something (try one of the Bach 351 Chorales per day).

Take the Presonus audiobox USB back. There is no need for an audio interface when connecting a Mac to a Yamaha receiver/amp. Just a waste of money and extra complications like you are experiencing. Connect the DP USB out to the Mac via USB. No USB
