Thanks foster12! Really like your playing! But I can't say I'm in love with any of the voices except for the last, which is quite nice!

Picking a nit: the stereo balance seems biased to the right, I wonder if the left side had a bad connection to your recorder?

Shameless request: I wonder if you could perhaps make a quick video of all the voices in there? I personally am quite interested in what the harpsichords, strings, and church organs sound like.

Hi Dewster!

Thank you for the advice! I don't know why this stereo balance is so bad. I think there is a false contact in my microphone connection. frown

Have you see yet this video I made?

No I haven't, thank you!

Some comments:

L&R seem swapped.

3:18 - When you play very softly it seems like it is playing at a low volume not possible to achieve on a real piano. This IMO is a consequence of the 61 dB dynamic range, which seems perhaps too wide to me, but I suppose not obnoxious.

4:00 - I think I can hear stretching on the low end.

4:11 - The guitar voice sounds kind of fake.

3:38 - The harpsichord sounds pretty good, with the realistic "return quill" sample when the key is lifted.

6:50 - The pipe organ sounds like a mix of full pipes and chapel organ voices. The upper notes are a bit strident. I think I hear notes decaying unnaturally when you lift the keys with the sustain pedal down, something Yamaha does on other models and I'm not sure why (it sounds weird to me).

Sorry to be so critical, not trying to rag on the P-105 or your excellent playing! Thanks again!

Thank you dewster for you analysis. I really appreciate it a lot smile

Only I think that the wooden bass isn't too bad. I think that I have to play in the correct range and tone.

Soon I'make a new demo with wooden bass voice.

Then I'll submit the result to my gf's father (fender specialist).

I'wish he will don't throw me stones laugh smile smile


P.S.
Interesting the possibility to change the touch.

I will try soon too. Now I'm a bit busy frown

foster12 playing my request :-)
I really like the sound of the last 2 compared to the first 2.
The first 2 remind me of video games.
Molto buono!

Only just saw the second video, it is wonderful you made this.
It is handy how you play the same thing side by side with different sounds to hear the change.
I agree with dewster the guitar sounds kind of fake.
I still like the piano sound the best though I like watching you play the harpsicord sound, very crisp.
13:37 I was not expecting drum beat, great!
