Olaf, are you talking about the music stand - where the music book sits? You put that down? Where do you put your music then?
No, I was not precise. I meant, to have the music stand up, but it is inside the lid. So that I have to open the front part in order get the music stand upright. I think, that is the usual way, like Chris does it too. However, I know that some people like my old teacher, let their lid completely closed and the note stand upright on top of that. It is very high, like Chris said, not comfortable and sounds muffled. However if the hammers are not voiced since decades, they are that hard that you cannot play with open lid, it sounds always very harsh.
It takes getting used to. It'' be at least an hour before I feel comfortable with it and can actually start rcording.
Ok, will try that approach. Still, I believe it's better to change micropositions or something else but always play, especially while recording, that one feels most comfortable, because the audible result will be accordingly.
But we are way OT here.
You are right. Robert: PLEASE answer the questions from Monica and me, however they are numerous statements back. Because we are snoopy!
