While intelligent wire choices and hammers are certainly key, I would also be curious of the state of the soundboard and bridges. This is from 1928 after all and not likely to be perfect.

Thanks very much. Very useful info. I guess I'm good to go, even with my now 5-year-old i7/12gig/usb 2/fast track ultra set up. Thing is, with the new really fast SSDs (Samsung) plus of course usb 3, seems to me that some of the big sample

Hi everybody, recently, my band is trying to play more funky stuff apart from the latin and swing standards we normally play. I really love the keyboard sound from a recording by Nils Landgren: I use the Neo-Soul Keys in the Kontakt player

Im just glad to see that someone wants a piano player. Here in orange county you see nothing of that sort, unless you walk into Nordstrom. But even the Nordstrom here has gotten rid of their piano and placed a couch there instead.

Hi Tim, I'm happy that you enjoyed this recording so much. I appreciate it! This was my first time playing a Godowsky piece. (His scores can be daunting.) You mentioned playing the long line. Yes, I tried to establish the necessary "sweep"

I find myself continually astonished by Godowsky's pianistic ingenuity. The fugue, especially, is extraordinarily innovative - no composer before or since has been able to create works like this for only half a pianist. Godowsky is famously quoted as

20-21 is a great pair. 21-22 wouldn't be bad either. 21 is actually probably the best major-key prelude in the whole set in my opinion.

Jump to new posts Re: Which digital piano has the heaviest keys? by toddy @ Today at 01:37 PM

The RD700 is even lighter than RHII (ES7 etc), the RD800 is similar but slightly heavier and more cushioned than the RD700. That's why the PHAIII (RD700) is so good - it's like a grand regulated to a lighter feel. Decisive and responsive, but not hea
