Re: Roll Call!

Good to see you active on the forums, Jorge. Good luck to you as well... although I think in both of our cases, commitment to practice will be the utimate determinant.

Re: Hello from Detroit

Thanks. The PX-560 isn't that much less than the Kawai VPC1. Had I known more about digital pianos, that's what I would have gotten in the first place. I don't need any of the zones, knobs, touch-screen, sequencer, or anything else other than a very good piano action and the necessary inputs and out...

I also just purchased my first 88 key digital piano, a Casio Privia PX-560 (which was a mistake). It's okay, but having now read a little more about such things, I'm jonesing hard for a K...

Re: Frustrated by timing problems and not being able to move on in program

I just starting using Playground Sessions and I haven't run into this yet. However, as with Piano Marvel, I don't time the notes by what I see on the screen. I tap my foot and count and I play when the appropriate beat comes along. I see that you can highlight sections of a song, like in Piano Marve...

Re: Keyboard stand for the iRig KeysPro?

Get a Z style keyboard heavy duty keyboard stand that is adjustable for height and width. They are much better than those X style stands, especially if you have long legs and want to use pedals.
