Don't get me wrong I like the action. I was just pointing out some differences. It is better than other ghs I've tried that's for sure.
Combined with the galaxy Software it sounds really really good and the piano is very expressive.
I honestly don't mind the stiffer action. Infact it feels better today than yesterday.
As for the bouncyness, it is definitely not as bouncy as the dgx 640. Not even close.
The action feels great. Whether its all in my head , who knows.
I don't know .. But I honestly think they modified the action somehow. Maybe the dgx I played was old and worn out.This could very well be the case because it looked as though it was sitting there for a while. Was the only weighted keyboard in the store actually (yes I know retail is sad here at times)
I was never planning to use the on board sound.
Even the cvp 605 I didn't like. (Sells for 45 000$ tt). About 7000us or so.. Maybe a little more
I guess I was being a bit critical with the sound. I just think its amazing the difference between onboard sound and VST sound.
But I lurvvvv vintage D by galaxy. .
Changed the dynamics back to normal and turned my stereo up and it sounds even better at the default settings. The sound of the midrange makes me melt.
Using the built in soundcard alone with my studio headphones the sound is almost inaudible fsr. , started a new thread to figure out the difference between soundcards and USB sound interfaces to learn about them.
I would probably need something with a built in preamp
I might have to get one and and also replace my stereo with some studio speakers because they can't handle the higher frequencies at all. Plenty distortion unfortunately(with the speakers alone , not headphones when plugged into the stereo)
My setup is a work in progress but is a thousand times better than what I had before so I am indeed extremely happy and excited.
If u guys have any advice on audio interfaces and sound cards(that support windows 8) feel free to share..
I'm sure nothing is perfect but you gotta admit native instruments are coming pretty darn close!
for fun I learned the beginning of the gladiator song "honour him" from a dude with a Steinway and sons piano on YouTube..
I played it on galaxy vintage D and got all warm and fuzzy inside as I heard how strikingly similar the sound samples were.
Alas I must try to not overindulge due to my muscle condition. My muscles will go berserk if I do so I shall exercise some self control. Lol
Thanks for all the advice guys..
