comment Automatic transcription software with ABC output for Android devices?
What is your "neck of the woods", "in these parts", exactly? I followed your link and read about this "ABC Notation" and all I can say is that I've been a musician familiar with many kinds of music, for many decades, yet I have never heard of this system of yours. I mean no disrespect, but I cannot believe that any number of people anywhere in the world actually use it. Has it been around for any length of time? Is it associated with some obscure national or ethnic music culture, and is that why I have never heard of it?

comment How to synthesize grand piano sound
My recollection is that the Yamaha CP1's grand piano sound is indeed made with a physical modeling synthesizer, but it also has an FM-synthesizer for DX7 "electric piano" sounds, and has a sample playback engine for other keyboard sounds besides that. I remember reading this from when the model was introduced a few years ago. The lower-priced models in the CP line use sample-playback for everything. I've never seen or played this model (and it hasn't been a big seller, apparently) so if anyone wants to verify this, please do.

comment Softer strings?
You are talking about the difference between nylon strings and steel strings. Nylon strings feel "soft" and steel strings feel "hard".
