Del Vento Perhaps because I'm a scientist, I found this obvious, but here it is in layman's words ( @CyberGene came close)
Instead of making an action which tries to reproduce the actual resistance of a well regulated grand, with all its quirks (typical digital folded action, with letoff simulator) or instead of using an actual well regulated acoustic action (upright or grand, as done in hybrid), let's use a "generic" action whose mechanical characteristics are chosen in real time, computationally and actuated by a mechanical device. As such, you can program the key to "feel" like whatever you please:
I have not watched any of the video, yet. I intend to but i’m a teency bit behind on many chores right now. However, i have watched what some select others have said about that video, to include @CyberGene @MacMacMac , @Ralphiano, @Pete14 and @Del Vento; with respect to a lay man’s understanding…..
In reverse order: 1) DelVento , quoted above, seems to be saying “ you know how it is often pointed out to lay DP enthusiasts that when they adjust the ‘key touch’ setting on their DP, this does not actually change what they feel as far as their action’s weight / softness V stiffness, it only makes a logical change in the DP’s computer/sound generator so that the pianist’s usual keypress forces are translated to a different velocity / dynamics response that provides an illusion of such?” ……well, our proposed generic DP action design, if successful, WILL mechanically do that! …. what DP actions have heretofore never been designed to do; 2) foreseeing this future THIS! moment, Pete14 is already planning some celebratory R&R, for which MacMacMac will be managing the funds and other pertinent data, Ralphiano will get back on this and our CWLO - chief wrench & lighting bolt officer - is tentatively on board with this.
I politely make a motion for MacMacMac to be at the helm of said pleasure craft, to further his lumbar’ectomy rehab sitting and standing at the wheel as he sees fit, and further motion the wheel / helm area be fully equipped with his DP & bench of choice ….. and further motion that i be appointed duty as far away as practical from monitoring any thing $ related
… …. but i could be mistaken in all of this.
