I don't know much about the G3 because it's so long since i've seen one. It depends on the condition of the piano - some of them can be very good, and some of them can be a bit rough around the edges. I used to practice on a 1980s G2 in London, and I

As someone pointed out, the MM8 has no built-in loudspeakers. So if you want anyone else to hear it, you'll have to buy an amp and speakers (or "powered speakers", which combine the two).

Sure, the resolution of the recorded mechanical/hardware movement needs to be quite high, but also the playback. The mechanics of the keys and pedals needs to be able to sense and replicate movement to the most minimal of movements. Facsimiles of r

Start by trying some acoustic pianos. Get a feel for the amount of weight it takes to push the keys down, and the way the speed with which you push controls how loud it sounds. Then take that knowledge to the digitals, and look for similar weigh

I have a late 1990s Yamaha P120. For the harpsichord preset, it uses constant velocity for the "on" sound, and it uses the note-off velocity to affect the volume of the sample of the plectra passing by the strings and damping them - so if y

I think there isn't enough advice being given here, since the OP apparently still doesn't get it. Steep learning curve.

If you can get it "cheap" with the mentality of replacing it in the future then sure go for it. I had a similar piano when I was little. It seemed awesome at the time but a few years later I could feel its physical limitations. Not that

Sure go for that drive. I think you could be happy with any of those pianos... just a matter of being satisfied with what you have/get. Grands are awesome but also more work to move, and I seem to move a lot!

In addition to pitch shifting or EQ, one way to transform an instrument is to play fortissimo with the timbre of a pianissimo (but the loudness of forte), or the reverse. This method is used by XLNAudio in their Addictive Keys piano. I don't know if

I agree with Heather about your recording. The notes and rhythm are solid. But there's very little "expression" -- varying dynamics, varying phrasing, varying between legato and staccato playing. If you take more lessons (or if you don't

Some composers prefer to do it that way, others dont, and I personally wouldn't either. IMHO, timbre is an important parameter that should not be an afterthought. Your mileage may vary, though.
