I have a casio celviano AP-200. I am an amateur player, self-teaching; working on 'the heart asks pleasure first'. I have found that some repeated notes on the right hand are silent and it seems to be because I am resting my finger on a note to be repeated (the E in the opening bars) and then doing a half-depress.
Playing the key from around 60%-100% depressed irrespective of force, is always silent. To get sound, I have to play the key from 0% depressed (i.e. untouched) to around 60%.
I will fix my technique problem and ensure I am releasing the key properly for repeated notes.
But it got me thinking: is this correct? Does an accoustic piano behave the same way, or is it a feature of digital pianos?
It varies from piano to piano but you would find this in acoustics also.obverse wrote:Does an accoustic piano behave the same way, or is it a feature of digital pianos?
