Re: Beter sound - solved

Just discovered that my MIDI cable (iConnectivity "Mio") has an optional downloadable MIDI driver that allows the MIDI signal to go to two (or more?) running programs simultaneously. Unlike a Mac, Windows 10 PCs won't do that without such a driver. Typical convoluted Windows solution, but it IS now...

Re: Original Scores?

Honestly, if you aren't abandoning PGS sometime in your learning (sooner for some, much later for others), then you aren't learning piano, you're just playing a video game. PGS does a great job of giving you a foundation, but if you want to play something besides what PGS offers, which is what you'...

Re: an independent metronome is very helpful

Type Metronome into Google and one will pop up on the Google page... or just install a free, or premium, one on your phone. You can't swing a dead cat on the internet without hitting an online metronome.

Re: Original Scores?

...The main reason that even advanced level arrangements of classical pieces are simplified is because all of our arrangements have to fit into our arrangement rubric to be consistent. We wouldn't want a piece to exceed the hardest level in Playground - Advanced Hard. So, you guys plan for customer...

Re: The ability to import our own arangments.

Right now I can live without this feature. However, as my facility with the piano increases, this will be a deal-breaker. As stated previously, Piano Marvel has this feature. So...

will this program work ok with a korg sv-1?
Of course it will. You might need the Korg USB driver. For Windows, here it is. If you are using something other than a PC, someone else will have to chime in.

Re: Old Casio Tone Bank CT-700

@Laurensss I didn't think of that. Probably not. I never use the PGS virtual piano (I'm either listening to the internal samples of my Kawai MP11SE or some other Piano Library e.g. Pianoteq, Ivory II, VI Labs, Addictive Keys, Keyscape etc...) So, it slipped my mind that most people probably do.

Re: Better to learn with numbers or letters for the keys (For the Advanced players)

I never used the numbers or letters. It just seemed like a crutch that I didn't want to be reliant upon. I'd just put the cursor on the first note of a given hand position to check that I was in the right octave and go. The only time I'd look at any numbers was when there was a weird finger shift of...

Re: Old Casio Tone Bank CT-700

It's an awful choice but it should work. Why do I say it's awful... it only has 12 note polyphony!!! So, the sustain pedal is pretty much pointless. It also only has 61 keys. It does NOT have a piano action. And, the keys are shiny plastic, un-weighted and springy like synth keys... which is the opp...
