So I'm new to piano and I bought this DP. I rather like GHS, but one thing that definitely doesn't favor it is the fact that playing near the "fallboard" is excrutiating due to what I suspect is a very short key length, so the further up you go, the more force you have to exert.
This is becoming a problem as I advance in skill. Arpeggios especially are hard because I can't get a uniform sound out of each note I play.
So one thing that definitely helps is setting the touch sensitivity on "High", meaning that I have to use less force to produce loud notes, also meaning that playing near the fallboard sounds better, more uniform in a sense.
My question is, is there a problem with using a High sensitivity? I understand from previous threads that it affects my capability to play dynamically, which I'm sort of at peace with because I'll never get piano-like dynamics from a DP.
My concern I suppose is that this is somehow "cheating". It's been a long while since I've played in a real grand piano, so I can't quite remember if the amout of force I'm applying currently on a High setting is the same force that I would use in a real piano, or if, conversely, I'm duping myself out of a proper learning experience by using a "High" touch setting".
But I INSIST - it is torture to play in the normal setting near the fallboard. At least the "High" touch setting masks the short key length and helps with the problem near the fallboard.
So... is it ok to play with a High touch setting? Do any of you guys do it, too? I guess I'm looking for someone to tell me it's ok, but if it's not, well, do tell me too. Thanks!
Note: I'm not changing my piano. I realize there are better pianos out there, but I am also not a rich man and I can't spend more than what I already have.
