Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Jump to new posts Re: Audio setup for VST by Frédéric L @ 49 seconds ago

The Scarlett 2i2 has not many inputs : 2 (you can record yourself in stereo). The advantage compared to a low-cost soundcard will be the sound quality. It is up to you to decide if the Focusrite 2i2 is worth the extra cost.

The RD-800, Kawai MP7, or the Yamaha CP4 would be great DPs to look at. Casio PX-5S is a great little board, very light, and has a lot to offer. But the action compared with the others listed is not at good. If you are under a budget, perhaps take

Thanks for that description, Peter. I didn't know that, about the held note. I'm going to have to go back and examine my Baroque pieces that I've learned and check if this happens anywhere so that I can correct what I'm doing.

@CyberGene: I am sure that I will not have any advantage in getting a HiRes velocity keyboard. I have just tried to record a set of notes I am trying to get the same level. The result varies from -2 to +2 from the mean velocity (and sometime more).

It's interesting, as noted above, that we're talking about a chord notation (D11) that doesn't appear to be used in lead sheets! I cited the opening chord of Maiden Voyage, which if not exactly identical, is nearly identical to the Am7/D chord that
