How about trading-in the Shigeru for a Winkelmann?

Speaking from the perspective of a bona fide "pre-beginner" who aspires to learn how to play piano one day, even I would know how a Roland V-piano looks like, and some of its nuances. Lurking in this forum in the past months, I have learned much from all of you, my friends, experienced pianists and keyboarders alike. And among them, Hideki, your postings invariably have been informative and knowledgeable. There is no way you could have made this purchase as an inadvertent mistake, an mistake that even I could not have made.

Thank you for clowning around in an effort to entertain us all on a hot summer day.

Ok. Well if you you are going to call me out like that, I must admit I haven't stopped laughing. I figured my thread title would peak some interest, but that my first post would immediately be recognized as an attempt at keyboard humor. I understand where some may not have seen that, but I assumed by the the second post, when I cast blame on my father and the everlasting stigma of the gift of Bee Gees, and Bennevis for misleading me with his V-power, my intentions would be clear. I threw in my flute savant child and the wise teachings of Cesar Millan for good measure. Andy Kaufman was for the old timers like me... 41 is old timer here, unlike the Piano Forum.

I did do a trade involving my CP1 for the V-synth and it wasn't a mistake. As my signature indicates, I'm pretty set in the piano department and I happen to enjoy other keyboard instruments.

Thanks for the laugh guys.

I assumed V was for Virtual and GT stands for Grand Touch. So this instrument should't disappoint at all ! It's obviously offering everything that it says; just close your eyes, enter the virtual experience and enjoy the grand touch. That's all it takes (you can even 'feel' the missing 27 keys in the virtual world this synth offers; great job Roland - I'll trade in my stage as well now that I've seen this !)

Hey! I can only talk about the V-Power, er, V-Piano because that's all I've got. Nothing came before it and probably nothing will come after it.... cry. Of course, if someone was to gift me with a good acoustic grand (like the one opposite your V-thing), I wouldn't say no (and I'd promise not to refer to my V-Piano as V-Power ever again) grin.

I threw in my AKG K271s (with headband showing) on the bench in the second picture for good measure. That was for you.

Yes, I noticed. In fact, the AKG K271 is now so common amoung the hoi polloi (not you of course grin) that I'm thinking of upgrading to the dinky Klipsch Image X10i, so that I can still stand out from everyone else. What do you think? wink

It is unbelievably fun to use. I thought it would be difficult, but it is pretty straight forward when it comes to using it as a performing tool. The Articulative Phrasing technology let's you get some unusually expressive synth sounds and the Time Pad and D-beam can be used effectively in moderation. It is also an incredible sound design tool, but I'm more of a tweaker than creator in that area.

I'm about to destroy the simplicty of my piano room by putting the Kronos, Virus and V-synth in there, but it's gonna be a blast.

I kinda read the post with the Bee Gees. It just sounded like a bunch of weird nonsense. So ironically, instead of thinking "this is obviously a joke," I thought "yeah, this dude is outta his mind." LOL

I was feeling a little crazy after being trapped in a room with walls made of speakers (a la Clockwork Orange) blaring the music of Joshua Seth played by Joshua Seth.
