The answer to the original question is quite simple - someone else provides orchestrations to go with the basic song, and then records real musicians and choirs (there's a video on YouTube that shows this happening for "Endless Forms...."). It's then simple to strip out the band parts from the final mix and play the orchestrations back for performance from a ...

For Acoustic Guitar You probably can do a reasonable job using a keyboard amp with an acoustic guitar. You may need a pre-amp pedal (or similar) to boost the signal from your guitar in order to use it with a keyboard amp, and you may want to adjust the equalization when switching between guitar and keys, but other than that, acoustic guitars often sound ...

Basically, yes. An amp is an essential part of a guitar's sound, tends to be overdriven somewhat (or has circuitry simulating the kind of overdrive a tube amp would show), has a single speaker with rather stiff fastenings and specific sound color covering a range up to something like 8kHz, no tweeters which would give overdrive a rather unpleasant color as ...

Guitar amplifiers reproduce sound very well in the range of notes (frequencies) that a guitar plays, but the sound quality is relatively poor outside that range. A keyboard can play a much wider range of notes, so a keyboard amplifier needs to be good at producing a wider range of frequencies. What this means is that a good keyboard amplifier will work ...

It's been several months since "googol analytics" posted a question regarding using VSTs in a live setting. If you're still looking for a solution, take a look at the Muse Research Receptor standalone unit. This is a dedicated unit for VST plugins. I have a couple of keyboard midi controllers hooked up to the unit. I use it on all my live gigs. Go to the ...

Yes, you do really need pedals, at least after the first few months (or less) of playing, depending on how well you progress and if you take lessons or not. Furthermore, unless you spend a great deal of money, most digital pianos' pedals will not act as an acoustic pedal. Once you get decent enough at playing, you will find that the digital piano pedal ...

You want Cantibile. Or Forte (Brainspawn not the notation Forte...). They will not only host your VSTs with whatever patches you want for each song and create signal chains for VST EFX, But they will also let you create Set Lists, trigger background Audio files, and have cool features like programmable midi keys so you can trigger things like start and stop ...

No. Any keyboard will either have the keys be weighted or unweighted. It is a physical feature of the keyboard just like the number of keys a keyboard has and it cannot be changed. It's a big thing to consider when getting a keyboard.
