The piano is a unique instrument, with the largest range of pitches of any musical acoustic device. But this is no simple relationship, like that of a vibrating tuning fork touched to your dining room table. The Musician's Guide to Acoustics, by Murray Campbell and Clive Greated, Dent and Sons l987 (ISBN 0-460- 04664-6), pp. I mention this technical study here, because there are so many factors which affect tuning of the instrument, more in fact that a proper tuning can deal with.
Now I want to talk about the dilemma which confronts every piano student or professional pianist. To repeat: The pianists faces the dilemma of operating a very complicated instrument with a complex musical program, and often must divert attention to the score and away from the final sound output. Most of us have our piano tuned twice a year, roughly when the house heating system goes on, and when it goes off.
The Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 is the benchmark of ergonomic keyboards which most buyers go for.
This ergonomic keyboard is contoured to meet your hands’ natural posture, or at least Microsoft thinks it does. The Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 is the perfect example of what ergonomic keyboards should be. The only downside of this keyboard is that the space bar is requires a little bit  more pressure to tap. Copyright © 2016 Carpal Tunnel Gadgets - Gadgets and Gears for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The debate that has been plaguing FPS fans for what seems like centuries are First Person Shooters better on the PC or on a Console? With the new control set up for FPS games, I actually feared that my shooting game days were long gone. In the early l9 th century the use of the cast-iron frame for stringing was introduced in the US, which stabilized much of the force of the steel strings, as compared to previous pianos which were plagued by the expansion and contraction of wood members under compression. The instrument itself involves an action with several thousand moving parts, a wood soundboard supported by ribs connecting to a rigid case, and the soundboard itself which under pressure from strings resting on two separate bridges, resounds and transmits the sound to the elastic air medium. Some of the factors affecting the final sound are inherent in the strings, case and soundboard, others are related to the human hearing apparatus, and many of the characteristics of piano sound are inexorably tied to the qualities of the individual instrument. It seems hardly necessary to mention this, but the wrest plank changes its hold on the pins so slowly over the years, that the gradual loosening may not be immediately apparent. If you are a light user the action may outlast you, actions are generally well built and very strong, and the occasional sticking key can be dealt with without much trouble. If you ask your tuner how long his tuning will stay correct, he may tell you till next spring or fall, and in a general sense that is right.


If you practice long hours daily on a mis-tuned piano, even one slightly off from a fine tuned instrument, you are accustoming your hearing to hearing mis-tuned sounds and intervals as normal. In this situation he or she (and she actually hears more acutely) ignores the tuning, and fails to rejoice in the lovely sound of a properly tuned instrument. Not only because it is Microsoft, but also the reviews are good, and the price is just right. It is best suited for people who know the qwerty touch typing method, which is ‘asdf’on the left and ‘jkl;’on the right. They are made that way so they are easy to stack and transport, you know, so business is easy.
The hardcore FPS fans out there sware by the PC, saying that using the mouse is faster and more accurate. So I went to the Playstation 1 and 2 for games like WWE wrestling, Tony hawks skate boarding and Devil May Cry. Iron made tuning much more stable, but the case and soundboard have all the propensities of wood to change in response to changes in heating and the seasonal humidities.
Tuning can only do so much, even when resorting to intentional mis-tuning of certain tones to avoid annoying overtones in the harmonic series. But in sheer honestly, he should tell you that a week later there will be changes, and in a month it would not be suitable for a concert or a recording. No violinist faces this problem, in an unfretted instrument or with the human voice the mind makes things sound right even as they are made, intervals automatically true themselves, even beyond the compromises of Equal Temperament.
Most of us have had to play the piano just as it stands, ignoring ringing sounds until they cross the threshold of tolerance, or until the tuner comes on his schedule. However our human hands are not made flat, so we would have to adjust on the keyboard we use day and night. Where console gamers like the fact that FPS games simulate shooters more by actually using your trigger finger and shooting down PC fans when they point out you can change the controller sensitivity. If I were to put this question to the Plus XP team I will have a vague idea of who will say what. Ok so it may cramp up your hands like a bitch but still it utilises the FPS game mechanics perfectly. Oh c’mon you must have thought at some point that shooting games would have been perfect for the Wii when motion plus came out? So it is usual for pianists who are concerned with keeping their instrument in relative tune to have the piano tuned twice a year, first when in spring the air becomes more humid, and again in the fall when the effect of a heating system starts to shrink wood parts. Compared with this necessary attention to detail of sound, the pianist tends to become a rough and crude listener. This is because the keypads for the left hand are separated with the right using an empty space.


Most of the time our hands are just unable to cope which leads to wrist pain, arthritis, CTS, or other Repetitive Strain Injury.  Think twice on just sticking with the standard keyboard as it is best to not risk your health.
Possibly not the best platform for FPS gaming by any stretch of the imagination, but defiantly something to look at, using the touch screen as your mouse if you would like, you then use the D pad to strafe and move forward and backward and then use the left bumper button as your trigger finger.
Metroid corruption used the Wii controls perfectly, and is today still the game that is making me think about getting a Wii.
That will be a very different piano from the piano he has been practicing on while preparing for the concert, it will sound clearer and cleaner, the harmonies will be the best that Equal Temperament can offer, and the sound will be better to his ears. Raising the level of acoustic attention and pleasure should be the aim of any musical endeavor.
The Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 is made this way because when the hands are too close with each other, the wrists tend to bend a little more.
Although it may require some time to getting used to, it won’t take long until you get the hang of it. So you could say I have really been playing FPS games the same way all my life, mouse free. Red Steel 1 we probably won’t talk about here, just mention it for the sake of mentioning it as it was, quite frankly, a shite game. Hence the remark of a professional pianist that the only piano he play on which is properly tuned is the one at his concert. Users who do not know the correct typing method may have a harder time adjusting with this keyboard. You could happily go along with the arrow keys seeing as there was no way to look up or down. Red Steel 2 on the other hand looks a lot better with the time I had with it at Eurogamer last year.
Then there is That Bloke In The Beanie, a hardcore PC gamer who has an X-Box in the corner of his room which he does play every now and again, but I know straight out he will say FPS games are better suited to the PC. I couldn’t really get on with it so I just tried it out with the keyboard and somehow made it through the campaign. This will probably stroke up a heated debate which I will endeavor to post on this site when the time comes. But I must say the Will has stunning potential for being the Next FPS platform as you pretty much have a gun in your hand.
