PianoDisc 228CFX Player System

Imagine your piano reproducing the performances of Rachmaninoff, Horowitz and Rubinstein-some of the greatest artists the world has known. Imagine listening to Broadway show tunes, jazz improvisations or Latin favorites - every genre of music - played on your piano. Imagine PianoDisc. PianoDisc lets you set the stage for any occasion, with the perfect musical selections played as vividly as if the artists were performing them right before your eyes.

 

Flexibility is a key element of the 228CFX. With it your piano can play via 3.5" floppy disks, specially-formatted PianoCDs or even access MX (Music Expansion) or MX Platinum, PianoDisc's optional flash memory storage systems. The 228CFX has an all-in-one control unit that uses state-of-the-art technology to provide unparalleled piano performances.

 

SilentDrive is an important, built-in feature of all PianoDisc systems. SilentDrive ensures that PianoDisc systems play with life-like expression, and sound remarkable even at the whisper-soft volume levels. It allows precise control of the piano's keys and pedals for greater fidelity, expression and low-volume control. SilentDrive consists of four boards: one CPU (central processing unit) and three custom ASIC (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit) chip-driven boards. The boards communicate using a type of serial information link that runs faster than MIDI. This electronic link allows for the almost instantaneous changes to the solenoid's speed when a new command is given. With SilentDrive, the PianoDisc system plays at much quieter levels, with whisper quiet movement of the solenoids and incredible dynamic expression.

 

SilentDrive Plus is the latest enhancement to this technology. It is available as an update. Contact your local PianoDisc dealer or PianoDisc directly to obtain this easy to install update... and a free bonus disc!

With MX, you can organize your music into 10 musical categories and 12 different libraries for the most convenient playback possible. You can save your music from a variety of sources including PianoDisc software, Standard MIDI files (type O) and others. With MX, you can create a special play list for every occasion, and by pre-programming the songs of your choice, your piano will play for hours on end, with no disks or CDs to change.

 

SymphonyPro When you add the SymphonyPro built-in sound module to your PianoDisc system you'll bring a whole orchestra of instrumental sounds to your piano. You'll enjoy realistic performances of woodwinds, strings, brass, drums and a host of other instruments accompanying your piano. With 128-sound GM instrumentation, SymphonyPro brings a whole new dimension to your piano performances.

 

TFT MIDI Record This option lets you record your piano performances via PianoDisc's patented TFT (Touch Film Technology), an exclusive system that faithfully captures every nuance of an original performance. The system consists of a sensor strip which is installed, very unobtrusively, beneath the key bed of your piano. When the pianist strikes a key, this sensor strip captures every element of his touch, including force, speed and duration. With 127 levels of individual expression, each note that's played is faithfully recorded. With TFT Record you can archive piano performances, including your children's first recitals, use it with educational software, compose with it and, by using available software and your computer, even print out the sheet music of your composition.

 

PianoMute This option allows you to play your piano without making a sound. By pulling a lever, a mute rail is activated which comes between the piano's hammers and its strings. When used in conjunction with the QuietTime GT option (see under Products), you can then hear your piano playing digitally, through headphones, or aloud over stereo speakers.

 

Powered Speakers These high performance audio speakers bring the sound of orchestrated accompaniment to life. Each amplified speaker (usually bought as a pair) is carefully mounted under your piano, to provide a perfectly balanced musical accompaniment to your piano's live performance. The resulting sound is thrilling: as your piano plays live, you can hear a jazz trio, a vocalist or even a symphony orchestra playing along with it.

 

PianoAmp (Microphone Pickup) Designed to “mike” an acoustic piano, the pickup attaches to the soundboard of the piano, and connects to an audio input on the 228CFX. The acoustic piano and orchestrated accompaniment will be heard anywhere there are speakers. Excellent for use with whole house audio or surround sound systems. The results are nothing short of incredible.

 

CD Wireless This system allows you to connect your own CD changer to the 228CFX system with no need for external wiring.
