Yep, most acoustics are uneven/ inconsistent, although a good regulation and voicing can minimize it considerably.

Maybe Roland deliberately made their piano inconsistent to make it sound hyper realistic and exactly like an acoustic?

It just makes my earlier statements more relevant.

I'm not saying the Roland piano is "bad" or "awful" or "unmusical".

I'm only saying the middle octave notes are uneven.

Lee,

I've known Roland Martin since he was a guide at Maryland's Loch Raven Reservoir. I've fished with him on Press Day at the Bass Master's Classic, and I can guarantee you that he would never call me Son--at least not without adding some other words to it. Then I would have tossed him overboard. He is from just below the Mason/Dixon Line, but I've never heard him referred to as a "good ol' boy."

Cheers,

Gary

Squeak,
You got me wandering...so I jst went down to play the Grand Piano RX on my PA2XPRO...Man that is a great Piano and very consistant all the way on all 76 keys...if I had a omplaint it might be that it gets just a little weak on the last few upper keys. Still ok up there though.

If you can feel a weigth underneath the PA2X than the Audya will have same key bed. The SD1 has the same action as well ..
Fatar Action

Dan, sorry to disagree, but I must.

The PA2xPro keybed and the SD1/1+ keybeds are not the same. Both are Fatar, but they are different models.

The PA1xPro felt about the same as the SD's, although the keys were longer.

I have owned all three.

As for the Audya having the same as a PA2x I don't know as I have not played one yet.

For a start the key length on the PA keybed is longer and the black keys also have sharper edges as opposed to more rounded ones on the Ketrons.

The PA action is also firmer than the SD1/1+ too.

Let's not forget that Fatar make dozens of keybeds, including the great 76 fully weighted one found on the Studiologic/Fatar VMK176 controller.

Now THAT would be one awesome keybed to put on either a PA2xPro or a Audya!!

The keybed on the PAXPRO is the:
http://www.fatar.com/Pages/TP_8PIANO.htm

And it works really well for me.

Not too weak, not too springy, not too firm...just right for general playing, IMHO.

I also will have to say that I liked the T2 keybed pretty well (even hough they are prone to troubles in a few years, it is said)

This is the same keybed used on the AUDYA (the link mentioned above that is).
