Anybody have any tips on how to emulate bass guitar on a keyboard, while using piano, or reading sheetmusic? :P

I got a Clavinova CVP-207

any good websites out there that give you free lessons on: percussion,bass,synth or brass technique?:? :lol:

I love the Elton John piano sound....but i'm way far from ever getting it!... :lol:

The CVP-207 is a pretty capable axe - you should be able to edit the pianos a fair bit for your elusive "Elton sound". Even some simple filter and EQ tweaks make a big difference. Also, Yamaha tends to pile of the reverb in most of the preset sounds in its instruments, so back that off a bit for a cleaner, more immediate presence to the sound - I strip the reverb right off the Yamaha piano patches... they're beautifully sampled in stereo (in instruments like the Motif, Tyros and the CVPs) and to my ears they sound so much cleaner and defined without any FX at all.

Right again Ricky :!: Whoever put the echo in a lot of the patches should be shot as well.

...This is what I've noticed so far.....

Clavinova pianos and AW16G reverbs DON'T blend in too well! :roll:
Even when changing the reverb parameters on the 16G.
Anybody else noticing that on their Yamaha synth/digital pianos?
Am I wrong? :) :?:

OH lord.....EQ and filters....2 subject I still don't understand! I'm trying to grasp the idea of using EFFs.

Do we "insert them on a track, or just roll the EFF1 button to apply the reverb to the track....is there anyway to have one track dry (TRK3) and the next track only has the 100% wet reverb w/o dry track (TRK4) so we can blend it, and can we also send the EFFects to the stereo track only?

If you're adding AW16G reverb to a CVP piano sound that's already drenched in reverb - it's a wonder you can make out the piano at all!

Shout it out loud with me now, Mitch... DEATH TO THE REVERB ON THE YAMAHA PIANO SOUND!!! DEATH TWICE OVER TO DOUBLE REVERB!!! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

:shock: OH, NO, RICKY!!! :shock:

MY CVP piano is recorded DRY to the 16G! :lol:

But the 16G reverb does not compliment the CVP piano at all.....do you guys notice that with your Yamaha piano/synths?

also, I've got a question about using Effects.... :oops:

The G's reverbs ain't gonna scare Lexicon anytime soon, that's for sure... they're useful to "fill in" parts of the mix with a bit of ambience, but they don't work well as "standalone" reverbs. You're better off using the CVP's 'verb if you must have some - the FX processors in the newer CVPs like the 207 blow the doors off the G.
