    When we went on our Disney cruise in fall of 2013 (I think), we were impressed with everything about the cruise save the music. I think that all of the musicians used iPad as part of their acts. Most...

    One problem with scanning in music is that you automatically get shunted up to a larger sized scanner with normal sheet music charts. Here, I'm not talking lead sheets or the like, but rather the...

    Something that I've wondered over the years is what ever happened to Professional Composer? I had the program and the entry keypad, but I moved away from music in the late 1980s for a spell, and lost...

    Same with mine. Plug in the cable from the stick to the box, and the box to the computer, and I could play grand piano all day long. No horns, mind you, but (in theory) the Apple mothership is...

    It's pretty amazing how little attention the makers of these instruments have paid to tracking this sort of thing over the years. The great Conn fire was accidental (apparently), but it has caused no...

    Why is the keyboard dusty? Did you not take the precaution of storing it in a carrying case? Shame, shame...

    And, in my tale of woe, the next chapter. I've found the USB drive that allegedly allows you to reset the password through a relatively complicated process of starting up a program, clicking on...

    Yeah, but it may be that the startup disk (actually a USB drive these days, but who's checking) is lost amongst the office papers (where my install disks for Canvas are also MIA). I had to dig...

    I did the download of the files listed above. I noted some mention of some fee for something, but was not able to chase it down, as the Apple folks reset my master Admin password on me and I cannot...

    My decision to try GarageBand was based upon the fact that I already had the program, and that the instrument augmentation package was cheap. No point in spending hundreds or a half a grand for...

    Well, I've had the same sort of problems here. Apparently the "universal" coding used by the Macintosh OSX system is not recognized by all internet display websites.

    For example, I often get...

    You're facing another of the perils of using the Windows system. Rendering stuff in foreign notation is a doddle on the Macintosh system, with none of the bizarre coding involved as it is in your...

    Ah, Garage Band...

    When I made the move away from analog and towards digital, I got the Yamaha controller (along with a nifty case), and a Macintosh/iOs interface, but decided to go on the cheap...

    Yup. The recorders are temperamental beasts at best, and with a part with massive leaps and notes towards the bottom of the range, you are asking for trouble if you are not fully "qualified" on the...

    Ummm...

    Long ago and far away, I conducted a trial of the Legere reed system. At the time, I believe there was only a single option available for each horn - no premium "brands", as it were.

    I...

    I've always been told that recorders were more properly referred to as "fipple" flutes, but as my computer objects to that spelling, perhaps I was told wrong.

    Nope, I was right. From Wikipedia:

    ...this is just another version of the suspended by peg and neck stand, only with a tripod base rather than a heavily weighted one.

    Nothing wrong with the stability of the basic setup, as long as...

    Don't discount the presence of cross fingerings for the same note. (Example: the clarinet practice of providing two fingerings for each of the notes operated by the little fingers.)

    Current value is what you need to be aiming at in any event. I think that this is some sort of variation on the ol' capital gains, although I doubt that the IRS will be worrying about this too much....

    Is that one of those "Pick and Pluck" cases, where the foam is pre-scored in little square columns, and you just remove what you need? (I ask this because of the square-ness of the openings in the...
