Yes, this is true.
strange that they'd want to skimp on a couple of keys, presumably to keep the product a little cheaper. Admittedly you don't need the highest and lowest keys every day but if you do it's a real pain.
Yes, this is true. Also, now my midi connector has broken! I will have to buy a new cable before I do any recording, and by then my trial period may be over.
Ah, the joys of learning new things.
My new job starts piano teaching job starts around next Thursday. I'm a little nervous, but I'm also looking forward to it.
You know, about trying all the options, Pianoteq has a great trial version that works for 20 minutes and some keys are silent, but at least you can get a real feeling of what it sounds like.
Ok all these tips are great. I don't know much about sound cards, but I can ask my brother, he'd be able to help me. I know, however, that I do have realtek installed and in use, but for some reason the recording sliders are missing. Perhaps that's not so important. I will have to try Piano Tech out when I find a new cable.
