No, but they both allow jacking off while playing. It's not necessarily recommended but I think it's possible.

Hmm, wouldn't an AG as a midi controller connected to V-Piano as a sound producer be a killer combination then? :-)

Or, how about transplanting a real Steinway "D" action into a V-Piano Grand?

Since the V-Grand already has "Steinway" sounds...

The V-Piano does.

I'd say more, but for the present (because I've got The Sound of Music to watch wink ), let's just say that I don't drink alcohol (rots the brain) or soda (rots the teeth). Tea and coffee suits me fine, and their caffeine helps my running (and all my other adventurous activities....).

As does the V-Piano. grin

Why can't we get decent old movies on TV over Christmas/New Year, like 'A Song to Remember', based (very loosely) on the life of Chopin? The scene when he coughs blood from his tuberculous lungs onto the the white keys of the piano during a concert is truly melodramatic... grin

Why single out Christmas as the death valley of decent television?

More appropriate, I think: There is no such thing as decent television, save for the VERY rare oasis, always wished for, seldom delivered.

Now there's an old fashioned context in which to use the word "caution"! I last heard that in an ancient film which, whilst not featuring blood coughed liberally up over a piano, might have pleased bennevis as Christmas entertainment.

And due to the way he eschews most forms of technology I imagine said film would be watched on apparatus such as:

Hey!
I'll have you know that I watched The Sound of Music on a modern (circa 1960) black-and-white TV set that I inherited from my grandparents.

If it ain't broke, don't replace it, as the saying goes...... wink
