So good to be able to hear you now, Pete. I really liked this. Your pedalling was very good and your tone nice and gentle, except for the middle section where I liked the deep, strong, left hand. Tempo was perfect too. Overall, great job.
About the Edirol - A piece like this with the greatly contrasting dynamics will be hard to determine your volume setting. Go much softer than you think. Most times, I use between 12 and 17 volume.
And the silliest thing I ever did was placing the machine all over the place, including inside my piano in an attempt to get the best sound, when I finally discovered that on a chair right next to me on the right works best. And I can reach it easily. Have fun.
Why, thank you, Monica.
About my pedalling, in the recording you can hear the dampers swooshing up and down. It gives you a sense of my timimg. In my next submission, there will be no damper noise or other piano action sounds.
Wow, I had the edirol vol. on at 30, hence the static covered peaks. I learned alot of what not
to do, that's good. My piano is a few cents sharp, that's why it sounds out of tune to me. My perfect-pitch ears are maddeningly sensitive. It can only get better from here.
