The Yamaha CP4 in action! Damn, this DP sounds really good when recorded.

 

 

I`m sorry if this looks like a promotion! Its not, I just wanted to say that I think that this DP sounds really great when recorded(to my ears). Sounds like shit through the monitors, so this was a pleasent surprise.

Ah, Kirk Covington. Long time ! I heard he moved to Austin ? We did some casuals years ago, duo , with me doing LH bass.

 

I remember one backyard party where we morphed from such fare as -- And I love her and Arthur's Theme into Moment's Notice and Inner Urge ...which you played here. The birthday party attendees never knew what hit them. :D

 

Not an easy thing to pull off, duo , playing LH bass. ;)

 

Yes the CP4 sounds good (along with your playing ) ! But I already knew that. :)

 

Nice trio you guys have , congrats. :cool:

 

Yes , getting a good sound through your monitors is the ongoing challenge. I use the RCF TT08As and a JMK Audio JM-110 di/preamp. For the money, I'm fairly happy with the sound. I can't justify throwing any more money at an electronic keyboard.

Great music, thanks for posting! Covington (Tribal Tech) is one of my fav drummers, he's pure energy. Hey Dave, seems like a great privilege to have played with such a great musician, also says a lot about your skills level.

Thank you so much guys:)!!!

 

It was an honour playing with this whirlwind of a drummer, best ever for me. And hes such a nice and humble guy too!

We did a livedvd and a studio album in a couple of days and the workmorale he has is incredible. Sessions, recording, seminars, hes just unstoppable:). Theres probably going to be some tours later this year with the trio (fingers crossed).

 

I was amazed over how good the CP4 sounds, now I understand all the love:)

I only heard it through crappy monitors, so this was a really plesant surprise!

What is the album title? When/where will it be available?

 

As for the monitoring, I can highly recommend the Dynacord AXM12A (provided you bring your own monitors). I have a pair of them. It's like having studio monitors on stage, almost :)

Thanks so much guys! And thanks for the tips on monitors. I`ve never actually considered buying my own monitors, thats a great idea!

I think the studio album will be called Present - Future (not sure). But its in being mixed right not by one of my absolute heros, Mr. Scott Kinsey! I dont know what the dvd will be called:).

 

Egersund? Thats cool! Norwegians "representin`" on the board here:)

Confession time. I clicked straight to 1:14 and thought for a second this was a "shreds" video.

 

I'm a terrible person, prone to snap judgements.

 

This is some heavy shit. Very adventurous, and yes, the CP4 sounds fantastic.

Glad you're loving it, what a killer board. There are times when I'm playing the CP4 in a jazz setting when it really feels like there is zero impediment sonically or technically to what I want to play. This is the first keyboard that isn't a real piano that I've ever had that with.

Again, thank you sooo much guys!!!

 

Bobadohshe: I`ve done two jazzgigs with the CP4 and I agree, it really feels nice to play, even through crappy monitors!

 

Did a session on a RD-800, which is a beautiful DP, but I just could`nt "connect" with it, no matter how badly I wanted to:).

My Sony MDR 7506 headphones made me think I was hearing a real piano when I listened to the video.

I could not connect with the RD-800 either when I did a side by side... The CP4 was almost effortless for me, best flow I've ever with a DP.

You & the band sound great and the piano records very well. And, big props for the multi-camera shoot and hq sound such a far cry from the typical youtube vids of live gigs!

 

As for the bad sound of the CP4 from monitors dare I broach this were you monitoring in stereo?
