I would agree with the orange analogy.

There are times when I prefer bottled orange juice for a variety of reasons but never because I crave a fresh orange and one is unavailable to me. I crave my DP in its own right. (Again I think I should point out I am only a piano noodler.)

BTW, If you mix in some bottled pineapple juice with bottled orange juice the result will taste closer to fresh squeezed orange juice.

In a similar vein I have found that mixing in a little harp can improve the sound of a DP (I have only been able to try this in software as harps are not widely included with the built-in sounds of a DP).

With this electric juicer, there's nothing left out. All that's left over is the orange peel. Everything else goes into the glass. (I like lots of pulp, so I set the strainer to the "open" position ... and there's virtually no waste.)

Am I being presumptuous in assuming that you don't eat the peel? smile I don't.


Drinking juice does not have same feel and touch as eating an entire orange.
With digital pianos, at least you do not play them disassembled smile

Like most metaphors, this orange thing breaks down somewhere...but entertaining nonetheless. Slightly OT (but on topic regarding orange juice):

I`ve always wonderd why an AP has something of a harp sound given certain conditions . . .That is interesting. I have a harp on my DP. this could be serious fun. .

I don`t know the rules on sticking to the question, but peripheral issues can raise up good stuff. My thoughts.

You`re right. We need a Metaphor Posting. Mine would be "Scrumpy" v "Strongbow" referring to cider. The first gives you a headache . . . .
