Jump to new posts EBVT for Concerts, Revisited by Cinnamonbear @ Today at 12:28 AM

Back in April, Toni Goldener posted a thread titled, "EBVT for Concerts," asking for opinions to help him decide whether or not he should give it a try. He later posted a recording of the (very lovely) concert with the piano tuned to EBVT.

Thanks, but I decided to try the Casio. No place around here had either board, but the Kurzweil was special order at most online places (which means no returns accepted). Kind of risky, so I just went with the PX560. It seems like it's newer tech,

Every keyboard I've played with and/or purchased has a separate reference manual for voices, styles, and other sounds. It's never in the main manual, and at first I too missed it and was a bit frustrated...this was with the MoX8 I think. But then I

Suggestions on the technique... You might have better luck if your paint is diluted to a glaze and then you use multiple coats. The translucency that the glaze has will help to make the transitions smoother, since successive coats would not transit

Play all notes legato if the musical context says legato and if it's physically possible, as it is in that case: 31 to 42 can easily be legato. The strategy of playing only the upper note legato is for situations where it's not physically possible to

IMHO, and FWIW: 25 keys (2 octaves) is pretty small for practicing progressions. If you reserve some of it for a bass line, the "right hand region" shrinks drastically. If you start playing "open voicings" with two hands, it'll
