Alpha Piano STUDIO & GRAND – the world’s only piano controllers with a full-fledged wooden concert piano action (the very same that is deployed in concert grands such as the Bösendorfer 280 or the Steinway D-274). Instead of hitting strings as in an acoustic piano, the felt hammers hit pressure sensors that were exclusively developed for ALPHA PIANOS. Just as in a real piano, the velocity of the hammer determines the volume of the tone. Pianists will appreciate how the sensors react to the hammer just as piano strings do – and authentically recreate the feeling of playing a concert grand.
mPiano – Cutting-edge keyboard controller with multiple levels of real-time control. The mPIANO is a MIDI controller like no other. Beyond the magnificent design you’ll discover new expressive possibilities to inspire your creative spirit. For the first time you can shape and energize your performances on real piano keys with built-in control options. Touch-sensitive key surfaces and high-resolution pressure/release sensitivity give you extensive real-time control of your performance after you hit the note.
