Re: Two Great Bass Players, both deceased.

Yes, both masters of their instrument.
Jack Bruce was a trained cellist and that is why he could do what he did on the Fretless bass. My Fretless bass playing was strained to say the least and now that my hands are shot, it has been lingering in its case.

Regards,

Ron

Re: What music are you listening to at the moment ?

Thanks Hugh for posting the link' and Brian glad you liked Lester Young. I would have loved to try and replicate his sax on my Tyros. I now have severe rheumatoid arthritis in both hands and wrists so no longer can play keyboards or my bass with comfort. The end of a promising career :D Regards, Ron

Re: What music are you listening to at the moment ?

These days I listen to all my music on Spotify. One of my favourites is Lester Young with the Oscar Peterson Trio playing " There will never be another you". What a beautiful tone Lester has on the tenor sax. Don't play keyboards any more.

Re: T4 to NP-30 .. Midi

Hi Fred, These were the instructions that worked for me but as I did this several years ago my memory is a bit vague. Be assured that it does work very well. My 2nd keyboard is a NP11. My split point is set to provide the whole T3 keys for melody over the whole range while the lower keys are for cho...

Re: T4 to NP-30 .. Midi

I have my T3 midi connected to NP11. This works as 2 individual keyboards with the NP11 working as left hand chords/bass and T3 for melody right hand. I am sure their is "Twinset up" article somewhere on the forum's archives.

Re: CVP-605 default pedal functions

Could this setting not be saved as part of a Registration? Only a quick fix but possibly you would not want to re-assign this pedal permanently.

Good luck to all who buy one.

Re: Yamaha PSR-E243 & PSR-E343 Keyboard Demos at NAMM 2013

Disagree about being a sales gimmick but do amit some apps are not all that useful for day to day music performance. The IPad is having more and more support in the music industry and will no doubt be incorporated in the T5 which, according to my sources, will appear in 2014. Work is already ongoing...

Re: Toys? I don't think so! - New AiR Technology From Casio

Certainly sounds good, however, you can only judge a piano's action by playing it for your self.

Re: Alan Haven - The Knack 1965

Hi Mike,

Wish I could remember the name of the TV show where Alan Haven provided the music.

I did wonder in the video how his hands were out of sync with the tune, but miming to his own recording was unexpected :D

Re: Alan Haven - The Knack 1965

Another excellent find Mike. I first heard Alan Haven at a Lowery demo in Edinburgh in the 60's. I still have an autographed album that I won in the prize draw at the event.

Sri Mike, not a style of playing that I have ever liked. But as you said, a bit like Marmite which I also do not enjoy :D

Re: Twin setup with Tyros 3 (midi problem)

Thanks for the input Eileen, but I already have a template for this and the split point is set at C1.

Still experimenting to get the NP11 to perform other functions than just acting as a "dumb" keyboard for the left hand section of the T3.

Re: Twin setup with Tyros 3 (midi problem)

Thanks Mike. Seems I posted a piece of misinfirmation: when CH1 is set to Song, the LEFT voice on the T3 is not being silenced and so I am using the slider volume control to cut off the left audio. Supposedly it is possible to do 2 setups for LEFT OFF or ON. Not a big deal as I have now discovered. ...

Hello all, I picked up a Yamaha Piaggero NP11 at my local music shop sale this afternoon. It is now connected via midi cable to my T3 and all is working except 1 item.
