Hi dewster, welcome. wink

Really? Why don't you answer in the thread I'm referring to then? E.g. here's a quote with an actual player's experience:

To be honest by "a lot of complaints" I meant not the velocity switching (which was apparently fixed by using modeled sound) but the authenticity of the sound which people complain is too synthetic.

P.S. There is a clear distinction:

RD-700SX: regular AP, regular EP
RD-700GX: regular AP, SN EP
RD-700NX: SN AP, SN EP
HP-30* : SN AP, regular EP

where:
"regular": entirely sampled, velocity switching, sample stretching, sample looping
SN AP: hybrid between sampling and modeling, no velocity switching, no sample stretching, no sample looping
SN EP: entirely modeled sound with control over model parameters like tine, hammer, pickup, etc.

Thanks for clarifying, CyberGene. The EP statement concerning console type DP's appears to be correct. As this thread is not about stage pianos, I've specified this more clearly in the post about the CA93 butterfly EP preset: smile

More to-the-point would be "Roland non-SN EP".

I'm not trying to be contentious, but "specified more clearly" and "fixed my incorrect statement" are two different things.

Hi TAD, (as my friends, you can call me Pini wink )

just tried your latest settings for a little hour before the dinner, and I was very surprised with your SEMI-ACOUSTIC GUITAR STRINGS R1.0: well resonance effect as an acoustic guitar, that makes an "envelop" for the bass and keep the rapid decay effect of the strings high freqs. The sound is very close to a semi acoustic guitar.
Once again, as anyone said before, your patch names are very "sexy" and I add: "realistic" - your SUPERTRAMP 'DREAMER' WURLITZER R1.0 is the right example of this !!! thumb

I'm expecting with lot of curiosity your C7 / RX-7 settings... I'm sure they will be gorgeous

It's been a long time since TADutchman requested me to make a recording with his ROMANTIC MELLOW GRAND R1.0 patch. I have had a very busy month with almost no time for playing piano at all... frown At the same time I have received from Amazon a set of 7 books with sheet music comprising almost all of the Chopin's works and I was eager to start playing. So, I found some time today to play for a few hours and felt in love with the Etude op. 10, No. 6. It's pretty difficult, at least for my skills (and that's probably one of the easiest Etudes... phew! I can't imagine being able to play the others soon :() I practiced it for about 2-3 hours and finally decided to record with the mentioned patch.

There are few mistakes, of course, especially an ugly one in the stretto... don't judge me too harshly frown

Here it is: Chopin - Etude

P.S. TADutchman, I find some phasey sound at pianissimos with headphones. In fact I detect that with headphones for all the sounds consisting of two layered pianos. However with speakers it's OK.

I know, I've already formulated a request to Kawai (James) for adding a simple finetuning parameter to the layered sound. I don't know what headphones you are using, but with my humble HD595s (using Headphones Low Impedance setting) it's near inaudible up to moderate volume levels and therefore sounds just great! At 'AP-like dangerously high headphone levels' it's another story of course. I personally prefer to play live at acoustic grand level.

That's a lovely piece CyberGene, although terribly sad in places. As usual, wonderfully emotional playing. cry

I too occasionally hear phasing when listening with headphones. Is this not related to the stereo images of the two layered sounds? And would independent finetune controls really helps things in such instances?

Through speakers the recording sounds far better, and the phasing is less noticeable. However, I do feel that the audio levels are too high - too much normalisation, perhaps?

Cheers,
James

Well, not necessarily, this also occurs when layering identical sounds, as indicated before. That's a unique CA93/CA63 feature by the way!


Originally Posted By: Kawai James

Yes, given that Kawai tuning is consistent over the whole dynamic range (ppp -> fff). As an analogy, you could just compare it to dedicated fine detune parameters for two oscillators and I'm sure you'll recognise the point made. wink
http://csound.noisepages.com/2010/10/detuned-oscillators/

Additional:
In general, layer dynamics works like a charm: please note that when playing pianissimo, the two layered sounds tend to be of more equal volume in many of my presets, compared to playing mezzoforte or fortissimo. That's why the pianissimo remark of CyberGene is correct.

James, thank you for your comments smile

Regarding the normalization - usually I am normalizing to -1dB, because I've noticed that 0dB leads to crackles with some audio cards (and/or headphones/speakers). This time I've forgotten and normalized again to the default 0dB and that could be part of the problem you mention.

Yes, my speakers were crackling a little, now that you come to mention it...although this may also be because they're not terribly good quality.

I like Chopin very much, but at first I thought: how did you manage to practice this particular piece (unknown to me) for hours without getting a nervous breakdown? shocked wink Then, after listening to it many more times, it really seems to grow on me too, becoming so deeply addictive and dramatic: great sound and playing style! thumb

Let's share another undocumented KAWAI CA93/CA63 feature: smile


ABOUT DUAL VOICE MODE NON-LINEARITY

With a linear DP (and dual voice mode support):
Voice 1 + Voice 2 = Voice 2 + Voice 1 = New Sound

Our CA93/CA63 is a non-linear DP, offering much more diversity*:
Voice 1 + Voice 2 = New Sound A
Voice 2 + Voice 1 = New Sound B


If you don't believe it, DIY! (make sure you have set Volume Balance = 5-5 and Layer Dynamics = 10 for unbiased results)

*) Voice 1 and 2 are even allowed to be of the same (e.g. Piano) Sound Group and Layer Dynamics can be used to timbre match these voices.

Hear, hear! whistle

Public announcement: there's a (slightly delayed) Christmas gift upcoming in the form of a CA93/CA63 preset that can be directly compared with the sound of this software EX Grand by Lance Herring: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0E_TSkkWxBs

Keywords: intimate pianissimos, thunderous fortissimos and great key-off resonances.

Allright, here's my much anticipated Christmas gift for you guys! wink smile

The below preset has been developed for direct comparison with the software EX Grand (a 17,49GB sample bank with no loops, recorded at 24Bits/48Khz): actually, I personally prefer this one with the heavy+ setting, yielding an intriguingly intimate and warm sound with unbelievable NICE !! pianissimo -> mezzoforte control (pump up your overall volume to really appreciate this). Enjoy!

Dual Voice: Concert Grand, volume 5 + Concert Grand 2, volume 5

1 Basic Settings
1 - 3 Tone control: low +3, mid -3, high +1

2 Virtual Technician
2 - 1 Voicing: dynamic
2 - 2 Damper resonance: 8
2 - 3 String resonance: 10
2 - 4 Key off effect: 10
2 - 5 Touch: heavy+ (closed lid) / heavy (half open lid) / normal (no lid ;-)
2 - 8 Stretch tuning: Wide

3 Key Settings
3 - 4 Layer dynamics: 10

Reverb: Hall 2

Effect: Delay 3, time 1, depth 4

Thanks for your gift and you've found another nice name for this one TAD! thumb I'm hopping over to my (brand new) CA93 to give the new patch a spin. I'll be back with a comment later on, as well as with my personal top-8!
