Do you play piano or is there a Budding pianist or two at home?
Not a problem. You or your children can practise for their grade exams because it is still a real piano with a proper full-length keyboard, piano keys and action. The sound and tone of the piano is not compromised. Alex. Steinbach pianos are renowned for their excellent quality and many Australian teachers use and recommend the Alex. Steinbach brand to their students.
How does your Piano iQ system work?
The Piano iQ system is located out of sight, underneath the piano. You will also receive a iPad so you can select the next song or adjust the volume from the comfort of your lounge or dining room. The Piano iQ system is constructed using a combination of amazing mechanics and sophisticated computer technology. It is an enhanced system, designed to transmit music and performance information to computer driven solenoids concealed within the piano. Each solenoid is capable of reproducing up to 127 different levels of expression.
Easy-to-use Control Unit
Developed exclusively by PianoDisc, the iQ Player control unit is a CPU and iPad player that reads specially encoded PianoDisc music and transmits the performance information to the playback mechanism in your piano. The iPad allows you to control various aspects of the performance, including playback volume.
Where to use iQ pianos
Piano iQ systems bring a whole new dimension to the household piano! Homeowners will appreciate not only the beauty of an Alex. Steinbach piano, but also the streamlined implementation and well-concealed Piano iQ system. Traditional decor can be preserved while enjoying access to an amazing array of new, contemporary musical possibilities.
Many different commercial environments use pianos, including restaurants, bars, hotel lobbies, department stores and shopping centres. Many of these environments are enhanced by the presence of a piano and pianists. However, sometimes a pianist simply isn't available. For those times, a Piano iQ system can fill the void with performances by many of today's most respected pianists. Your clients and customers will surely be impressed with a piano that plays by itself!
At Places of Worship
The Piano iQ control unit is uniquely suited for the worship environment. Several of the selections in the PianoDisc iQ library include performances by many of the best sacred music pianists ever recorded. Beautiful meditation music can enhance many worship services, and PianoDisc recordings of many sacred masterpieces can enhance seasonal events such as Christmas. Your Piano iQ control unit can also be used in the event your pianist is absent from a worship service.
