Virtual Acoustic Tone Generator with Unlimited Sound Creation and Solo Performance Potential. Unique to Yamaha, computer-based "physical modeling" technology which accurately simulates the complex vibrations, resonances, reflections and other acoustic phenomena that occur in real wind or string instruments-to produce high quality monophonic voices.
The AP-31 has naturally-scaled hammer keys, which are graded from heavier in the lower registers to lighter in the higher region. The sound generator utilizes stereo samples taken from acoustic instruments, enhanced by a powerful sound system, and reverb and chorus effects. Also this has two separate pedals for dedicated damper, soft/sostenuto effects.
The Classico 900 combines advanced piano technologies and ensemble features at an ultra-affordable price. All of the ensemble performance power of the Classico 800 is there, plus extra niceties such as a beautiful Dark Rosewood finish, sliding key cover, full modesty panel and a matching bench.
The slim and compact configuration of the Privia PX-100 allows it to fit easily into virtually any interior environment. With its compact design, and each model weighing about 27.6 lbs., it can go almost anywhere you do. When not in use, the Privia can be easily stored in a closet, under a bed, or in other compact locations where other digital pianos won't fit.
The Valdesta Classico 750 is THE ultra-affordable digital piano featuring 88 Full Weighted Keys and a simulated black satin finish. This piano also goes well beyond the basics, providing PCM sampled sounds, a two-track recorder, headphone output for silent play, MIDI for computer connectivity, a full modesty panel, 3 full-function pedals, a sliding key cover and a 40 watt sound system.

Edirol SD-90 Studio Canvas 128-Voice Sound Module atated the following (something like that lar i cannot remember), "we will not be responsible for any -something along the lines of a bad haircut- and damage to clothing". shudder.
5 mins later a girl told me to come forward. I told her i wanted to trim and thin my hair, shorter at the back, BUT NOT TOO SHORT and KEEP THE FRINGE. She brought me to the sink to wash my hair. To my left was a student washing a mannequin's hair and in front of me there were about 10 students perming massaging and highlighting plastic heads without bodies. Very telling.
i am too sian to continue with the story. Bottomline, i sat there for 3 hours, i had 3 different people come cut my hair, the poor student had to recut my hair 4 times because it wasn't aligned and 2 teachers told her different things so she had to keep re-cutting my hair. left longer than right, chop. right longer than left, chop. left longer than right, chop. no you have to use a scissors to create volume here, then use a planner for here, chop. you have to trim the fringe because the back is too short, chop. the fringe is still too long, chop. you get the drift..
It was done, and horror of horrors she gelled whatever that was left up up up high high into the sky. A wave of tears.
orrors she gelled whatever that was left up up up high high into the sky. A wave of tears.
