Question about Roland RD-700NX SuperNATURAL Stage Piano

2 Answers

I was wondering if it is normal that my piano down-tunes while I am playing.

When I'm playing a song on my piano, the piano will randomly down-tune. Sometimes I feel it is related to my pedal, maybe a setting is wrong? Can you help me with this? Thanks

No, it's not normal.To determine if it's a setting glitch or a hardware problem, perform a factory reset and see if the problem continues. If it does, it's a hardware problem and needs to go to the shop. Here's the reset instructions-

Are we talking about an electronic piano, or a traditional?

If electronic, the main processor chip needs to be replaced. If it's under warranty, take it to an authorized repair place- you can find them on the brand's website. If it's not under warranty, you'll need to make a decision: is the instrument worth fixing, or would replacement be cheaper? Check around, get quotes from several people. (One method I use is to get a quote from a technician, then ask others if they can beat that price.

If we're talking about a traditional piano, the only thing I can think of is that the adjustment pin is loose somehow- worn, maybe? Has it been tuned recently; any strings replaced?

you may need to seek out the services of a piano tuner.

SOURCE: Roland DP-2 pedal not functioning correctly.

There are two types of damper pedal switches, on that is closed until you press it, and one that closes when your press it. It sounds like your Casio is expecting one type and your Roland pedal is the other type. A quick way to test this is to plug a guitar cable into the Casio pedal input and see if the keyboard sustains. If it does, then your Casio requires an "normally closed" switch.

Some pedals have a small switch near the cord or even on the bottom of the pedal that will reverse the switching operation (BOSS pedals, a division of Roland, have this feature). If you can find that, then change the switch position and you should be OK.

If not, and you feel like digging into your pedal, you could take the bottom off of the pedal and check out the switch itself. Many pedals use a switch that can be used either way. The clue will be on the switch itself. If there is an extra tab on the switch that is unused, then switch the wire that is furthest away from that tab to that tab. This will probably involve soldering, but it is nearly impossible to damage anything.
If moving the wire that is furthest away does not do anything, then try putting that wire back and switching the other one.

If your pedal does NOT have an extra tab, you're SOL, unless you want to buy a replacement switch (unsure of make). If this is the case, you are probably better off getting a different damper pedal - preferably one that is marketed as "universal"

Why does my casio p-45 piano only play one demo song? There are 16 available. I followed the instructions in the manual. Any ideas...?


Well friend,
According to page 24 of the manual here http://support.casio.com/pdf/008/ap_45_e.pdf
It says
Demo tunes
While holding down the MUSIC LIBRARY button,
press the PLAY/STOP button
.....and try to play a specific demo tune ........
After playback starts, press the tone button that
corresponds to the tune you want to play.from the list.

ALSO in the Troubleshooting section page 35 For DEMO tunes UNPLUG HEADPHONES

If it doesn't work, then you need to get a Technician to look at it.

Need to downsize, have a Yamaha Upright Piano, serial # 1250568


Well my friend, not knowing exactly what model this is, makes this a difficult question to answer as the market for upright pianos is really shrinking, but that's not to say it has no value. I can tell you that all pianos need tuning after being moved even down a flight of stairs so don't worry about that detracting from the value. More details would be helpful in answering this question.

I know that a Clavinova cannot get out of tune, but - in the lowest two octaves - my mom's CLP-115 sounds as if it is. Might this be a problem with memory, speakers or circuitry? Any idea how we might fix...


Realize that it MAY be stretch tuned like a real piano. A real piano is tuned increasingly sharp above middle C and increasingly flat below middle C. At the ends, the the off tuning is about 20 to 22 cents sharp and flat. The Clavinova should emulate this. In a real piano this makes it sound better and prevents some cross coupling of harmonics. Read up about stretch tuning on the internet. The Clavinova gets its reference from a quartz crytal oscillator and they just dont' get out of tune.

How do you change your chord set-up on an autoharp and is there any reason not to set it up like a piano keyboard (C-D-E-F-G-A-B)? Thanks in advance.


An autoharp makes chords by muting all the strings except those that make the chord. There would be 2 ways to change the chord structure. 1) retune the strings knowing which ones will be muted by each key so that the result is another but valid chord or 2) make your own "keys" so that they mute different strings.
The tuning of an autoharp is selected to allow you to play songs as long as they are in the right key or two. If you set it "like a piano" as you suggest, you could play those chords but not the chord sequences that make up most songs. Most songs revolve around sequences or intervals such as the popular 1 - 4 - 5 blues progressions. Most music has some predictable progressions and that's why the autoharp is tuned the way it is.
You can always experiment with different and odd tunings but if your goal is to play already written songs, I'd stick with the normal tunings - there are alternates.

Tuning


If you are marginally interested in the process of tuning the piano, and your main motivation is to save the cost of a professional tuning, bite the bullet and engage the services of a qualified tuner. Trying to do it yourself will become overwhelming very quickly. If, however, you are genuinely interested in the skill of tuning, and willing to invest the time and effort to become good at it, then get yourself a star tipped tuning hammer and some mutes (eBay will do) and start to see what you can do to make your piano sound better. Begin by getting the whine out of individual notes by tuning the strings to each other. Search out the "Every which way you can" tuning article by Kent Swafford on your favorite search engine for an introduction to aural tuning. If you're inclined to start out with an electronic tuning aid, check out Tunelab Pro - a free, fully functional demo is available for download to your laptop. Remember, however, that an electronic aid only shows you whether you've hit your target for any given string. Learning how to finess the physical motions of tuning so that the string stays on target for more than a few minutes is another process altogether. If your first couple of forays into trying to tune don't drive you around the bend, then consider finding a qualified piano technician who would be willing to provide lessons for a fee. If your interest holds up, investigate the resources for learning that are available through the Piano Technicians Guild. Their source books and monthly journals are second to none, but unless you are committed enough to the process to become an associate member, the non-member prices for materials are pretty high. "Piano Servicing" by Reblitz is another excellent source of knowledge. It might be in your local library.
