Turn your home piano into a Hybrid Silent Piano.
Do you get shy playing the piano around others?
Do your neighbours not appreciate your late night piano playing?
Do the kids drown out the TV when you’re trying to watch?
Do you want to record your playing to a computer or tablet?
Do you want to play along to strings, organs and other instrumentation?
Do you want to bring your piano into the 21st century?
If you answered yes to any of the above, PianoTech can help you out by fitting a Genio Silent Piano System to your piano.
Installing a Genio Silent Piano System will help you to unlock a new universe of musical potential!
A Piano Silencer is a device that is installed inside your existing acoustic piano. Once installed it allows you to play silently using headphones, preventing the disruption of those around you. Whether your piano is grand or upright, new or used, PianoTech has a system for you.
When you activate the silent practice facility, the piano hammers will no longer hit the strings. Instead, a newly installed sensor rail under the keys captures all key movements and sends the information to the digital processing unit.
Key features of the Genio Silent Piano System include:
•16 High-resolution musical instrument sounds
•16 user presets enable you to edit and save your favourite sounds
•128 General MIDI musical instrument sounds to give you all the versatility you need for your music, as well as playback of Standard MIDI Files (SMF)
•Use the built-in 4-track sequencer to record and monitor your performance, and build up complicated multi-part performances one track at a time.
•Use your acoustic piano’s keyboard to record music to a computer and score your performance using notation software
•Connect to you stereo system.
PianoTech has used Genio to save an old piano from landfill. The piano had a crack in the wood tuning wrest plank and could not be tuned. Due to sentimental value the customer would not part with it. We suggested fitting a Genio Silent System, giving this piano a new life as a digital instrument. When connected to a speaker system the Piano sounded better than the day it was made. In the end we were left with one very happy customer who has regained full use of her piano without ever needing it tuned.
Most pianos can be fitted with this system but some very small pianos or pianos with less than 88 keys may not be compatible.
