Is "Keyboard" really "Keyboard Sounds"?

I'll vote for the sidebar. Call it "Gimme some action" or whatever. If you make comments about the keyboard's approximation to an acoustic piano please specify which brand - e.g. Kawai is markedly heavier than most so this is important. Maybe the list I started could be embellished. I mean give it a rating for playing: 1. classical piano (even velocity being important here); 2. Hammond palm swipes; 3. machinegun Hammond technique; 4. clav (I'm referring to the key-up spring you want triggering a sample of the trigger reconnecting to the string playing funk); etc.

Keys: Hammond SK2, Hammond SK1, Hammond SKpro, Korg Vox Continental, Waldorf STVC

Amplification: Line6 L3T, Yamaha DBR-10, Presonus Air 10, Leslie 122V

And you wonder why there's "nothing new and innovative" out there in hardware. You get upset with repackaged technology.


Thanks for calling. :freak:

I'm still in semi-shock that this is going to happen. That's not bad, just amazing! Do you realize how very, very rare it is for a company to change like this, to be this responsive to their customers?


I'm still talking to everybody about it.




Thanks again, guys.
