What one? Keyboard or Piano?


That would depend on what you want to use it for. Assuming you mean a real piano, it's not portable, it can't be used with headphones for silent practice, and it will need periodic tuning and general maintenence. However, no electronic device is actually going to sound like a real piano, and no action feels the same as a real piano. Keyboards, on the other hand, can be played in different locations, have a larger variety of sounds, and are cheaper to maintain. As a pro musician, I own both. Actually a number of different keyboards, but only one piano

QS8 keyboard. Why is volume in organ mode much louder than piano mode when I switch between modes without touching volume slide?


On organ mode, in general, almost all brands of the modern keyboard, velocity setting is not enabled. Setting velocity is used to determine how much the level of the sound that follows how strongly you press the keys. It is really just to imitate the sound of vintage organs, which in the past, electronic organ technologi not use the velocity on the keys. So, how strong / slow we press the keys, the sound level will remain the same.
At the Piano mode,modern keyboard using setting velocity. This also to imitate an acoustic piano, which, if we press the keys slowly, the sound level will be slow as well, and vice versa.
So, in your case,at the same volume slider, try to play on the organ modes, note level. Moving to the piano mode and press the keys securely powered (full power). Then the sound level should be equal to the organ mode.
On modern keyboards, also included organ sound that added velocity setting. Usually found on the user bank.

Hi, when I play a chord on my Casio-656 keyboard it sometimes sounds out of tune - if you hit the chord again it plays correctly. Is this a fault or a setting? It seems to be intermittent so that would...


I would check your fingering... You MAY be late in hitting a particular note and the using auto chord... this can cause the problem. Another thing is if notes are hit with different velocity that can affect the sound. Sometimes certain voices have VELOCITY switching which actually changes the voice depending on the velocity you hit a note.

Hi, I am undecided about which digital piano to buy: Yamaha Arius 141 or Roland F110? help appreciated, thanks, karol.


I have two Yamaha's and I will say they are maintainable. Almost ALL the weighted piano key models use a keyboard made by one company as I understand it. I can easily get service manuals for the Yamaha, not quite as easy for the Roland... same goes for repair parts. Your decision... listen to each and decide. Hint: Use a set of headphones to do the compparision rather than internal speakers as the orientation in a music store can drastically change the sound.

There is a tinny unpleasant sustain in the high notes with or without pedal. Is there an adjustment to mellow this sort of ringing (the keyboard is set all the way to "mellow") we tried...


Some of the Yamaha pianos have several pianos emulated and selecting a "Grand" will sound different than if you select an "Electric" or "***** Tonk" setting.

There is NO internal adjustment for this. other than the voice selection. Choose either the Grand1 or Grand2. Do not use reverb as this can "ring".

My Korg c15s has a lot of grating staticky noises when played ....I'm told it cannot be repaired as Korg no longer makes parts for this model?


I have a Korg C-15s and also experiencing loud crackling sounds when I turn it on. The problems seems to be either the sliding volume control or the amplifier itself. Honestly though, I believe the issue is the volume control. I opened my piano to get a closer look and attempted to clean the contacts on the volume. Unfortunately after cleaning the contacts, the crackling sounds became somewhat worse. After I turn the piano on, the volume control is generally rendered useless......volume set to low volume and the noise is quite loud and other times the volume control is set high and get very low volume crackling noise. No real consistency. The noise does diminish after a few minutes but so does the piano sounds to an inaudible level. There were a couple of instances where I turned it on and surprising enough, no no noise and perfect sound. For these reasons I believe the issue is within the volume control and not so much the amplifier. I have an electronics background and noticed that the volume control is very unique in design and is not something that can be substituted with another volume control from other sources.

My recommendation is to check the sound quality of the audio from the RCA L/R audio outs on rear of the piano by connecting to a stereo receiver. If it sounds fine you're in luck. If the crackling sound does not diminish after a few minutes like mine does, I would suggest disconnecting the internal speakers and using the audio out only. You can connect a pair of studio monitors or high quality computer speakers, preferably with a small subwoofer to deliver the full audio range and deeper tone of a real piano. I'm currently using a basic pair of Logitech computer speakers and is quite acceptable until I can afford a high quality set of monitors or relocate my piano closer to my high quality Yamaha receiver.

I hope this info helps a bit.

My electric piano has developed a mains hum. I haven't moved it or put anything near by. Thoughts on cause & remidy?


Hums are usually related to power, but not usually the actual power adapter. It's most commonly a "ground loop" issue, with the infamous 60Hz hum. The solution for this sometimes is to try plugging the keyboard (or amp) into a different power outlet, perhaps on a separate circuit.

Also try an audio cable of higher quality, which may have shielding or braiding in it to reduce external noise and cancel out internal noise. Also, shorter cables tend to produce less noise than longer ones
