Hundred times I heard about the polyphony is gravital to experience top end sounds in professional keyboards. It is not only a matter of how many keys you are playing at the same time but, it reveals the quality level of the sounds sampled.
While, my Kurzweil piano has only 64 and are dinamically alocated (which exactly I do not understand). Some friends keep telling me "You've better chosen another piano, most of modern ones sports 128 at least. In fact some Casio's sport 256. I did no understand, I do not play with rythnm or extra effects.. just piano and some layered "combos" what noticed is the time of the sound to dissapear after I release the key.. even with the sustain pedal is kind of short. Is that the real matter? I consider my sounds good enough, but more poly and more memory means better sampling (recording from a true piano). Could anybody explain it to me, the differences in concepts (if there are).
Thanks in advanced
