... Donald Fagen comments that the problem with digital pianos and synthesizers, as compared to acoustic pianos and tuneable electric pianos like the Rhodes, is that the "top end is flat and the bottom end is sharp." "It's just the mathematics," i.e., because of the absence of stretched tuning.

Thoughts?

He's a bit, actually he's a lot behind the times. Most DPs now have stretch tuning as default - as my V-Piano does. It offers three different degrees of stretch tuning: gentle, standard and deep. To get flat tuning, I'd have to change the tuning manually.

There was a thread a few weeks ago about this.

I recently refered to "acoustic dinosours" on another thread. Now we have an "anologue dinosaur".

It seems some sort of pre-historic revival is under way.

Does any musician actually LIVE in the 21st century yet?

(PS I include myself in that, I have owned midi-capable Rolands since 1990 and do not have the first idea how to use it or do anything with it. One day, I must read that book I got about midi, but then, I just like playing the piano, pure and simple....)
