JeffLearman Posted October 22, 2010 Share Posted October 22, 2010 I'm not sure it's quite that simple. Forgetting about the perspective of the player (who does hear strings to his left and right), you're correct that, from the audience's perspective, the entire piano sound is coming "mono" from the area in front, with nothing "different" about left vs. right apart from room reflections.I totally disagree. To me, a real piano in a real room sounds far more stereo than mono or than a mono speaker in a real room. In either case I can locate the source, but the real piano has an image. The mono speaker in the real room is pretty flat. In any case, I like an image, even when it isn't natural. That's a big difference between Kanker and me, and it's just a preference, not a matter of philosophy or integrity or superiority. Just hey, chocolate or vanilla? What do you want? They're both great in the right circumstances. I'll admit that one is easier to get right, as well. But damn I do loves me my chocolate! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
