Loudness is perception, which is hard to measure as it varies from person to person. Generally, you should turn your DP up to about 80% of the volume. However, that may not get you to where you want to be. You may want to consider investing in monito

Thanks everybody for your answers. Musicdude, apologies for having drawn the thread off-topic, I appreciate that you are not taking it bad. Sounds like there is consensus on the benefit of having the student trying something new on the spot. Next

I don't think having a good teacher is the only way to change one's self-image. It seems to me there are a lot of ways to recognize negative thoughts and processes. Just listening to your "self-talk" - it can be surprising how much we beat
Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards

Hello Usually the way we get to play with an orchestra is through winning a competition. But with so many orchestras and different types (professional, community), I was wondering if we,soloists, could approach an orchestra and ask about a possible

Nobody intended jazz to sound fuzzy but the hiss on the early recordings has made the "sizzler" cymbal a sometimes desired addition in the jazz setting. Nobody intended for the electric guitar to have a clipped and distorted sound but when

I am reading a book on psychological cybernetics. Which is the theory of goal oriented results, within the frame set of a held “self image”. The premise in so many words is that, if one has a negative or narrow self image one can’t achieve b

Hmm this is interesting. I find I have to turn the volume up to 80-85% with headphones on my N1 and 90-95% through the built in speakers to match the level of sound I'm used to from our grand. Since I don't really understand the watts unit in terms

There's another way to handle recording the MP8: . . . Buy a digital recorder with a stereo "Line In" jack, . . . and record the audio signal from the stereo "Line Out" jacks of the MP-8. A Zoom H1 should be more than adequate.

I have a Roland Fp4 that's Midi'ed to my Kronos 61. It has a solid well built feel to it and the touch is indeed light, but it still has a nice weight to it. It's perfect for playing ep's, ap's and pads and strings. I don't use the sounds on the
