Transforms any 88-key acoustic piano into an expressive new instrument.

It attaches to any acoustic piano in minutes without modification, providing a MIDI output for layering with or replacing the original sound, or for easily interfacing studio pianos with scoring, sequencing, and notation programs. It works by means of a scanner bar that sits just over the keys against the fall board, and a pedal scanner that sits just under the pedals to register their motion. The scanners feed note, velocity, and pedal information to a module that converts it to MIDI to trigger any of 300 sounds with up to 16 simultaneously. 100 preset MIDI configurations are built-in with user-programmable zones, volume, velocity curves, and other functions in 20 user setups. MIDI sounds can be layered with the acoustic sounds to add a new dimension to your music.

Here are some of the applications of the PianoBar:

Sound Exploration

Choose from a collection of more than 300 instruments, 16 at a time, to layer with the sound of your acoustic piano.

Aid to Composition

Interface the PianoBar to composition software (like Sibelius) and watch your score instantly appear as sheet music on a lap top.

New Tool for Piano Teachers

Play a MIDI file into the Control Module. Watch as the LEDs above each key light-up showing chord changes, patterns, or riffs - great for visual learners!


Play a MIDI file from a computer into the PianoBar and convert your piano into a virtual player piano!
