Yamaha P85 Reverb

October 10th, 2012

At the BIDA dance Sunday, where Julie was using my Yamaha P85 keyboard instead of her identical one:
Julie: You know what makes my keyboard different from yours? It doesn't have reverb on.
Jeff: I don't think mine has reverb.
Julie: It sure sounds like it does.
Jeff: But I thought these keyboards didn't have a reverb option.
Julie: They do, but it's one of those hidden options.
Jeff: [Brings up manual on the phone.] You're right: it does have reverb. [Holds down 'metronome' and the highest note on the keyboard.]
Julie: This sounds much better; thanks!
Jeff: When I first got this keyboard, a year and a half ago, Amy would complain that it sounded reverby. I wish I'd looked at it more then!

Checkmate on blackmail?

It has been argued that blackmail should be legal if gossip is legal, and even that there are no good consequentialist counterarguments (!). I think this isn’t obvious because the disclosures incentivized by blackmail are systematically worse than gossip.…
