"Imagine your piano played by one of the greatest pianists of all time; Rachmaninoff, Gould or Richter. Imagine it playing show tunes, classical, jazz or ragtime. Imagine it accompanying one of your favourite singers. Imagine your piano setting the mood for any occasion from an intimate dinner to a large gathering. PianoDisc systems can be retrofitted to pianos of virtually any size, style or make, turning them into digital player pianos. Whether you have a grand piano or an upright, a new piano or used, PianoDisc has a system for you. There are also many options you can add that make PianoDisc even more appealing and valuable. It is important to remember that all PianoDisc systems offer full 88-note playback with 1024 levels of individual note expression per key "

This model from the iQ series is perfect for both professional and private use. It requires minimal changes to the existing instrument. Once fitted you can continue to use your instrument as an acoustic piano or digital player piano. The iPod App and Video App in Apple's iPad serve as a user interface. The system is supplied with a special WLAN audio receiver as well as an iPad from Apple. Twenty-one pre-selected albums have been already factory installed on the iPad. This means from the first day of use the iPad offers more than nineteen hours of music from PianoDisc's music library. With the ipod App, playback lists can be easily set to shuffle mode for playback, repetition of the entire list or individual titles. From here you can also control the volume. The iPad can be connected to the internet via WLAN in order to surf the web, receive emails or select more music from the PianoDisc website. The iPad also supports MIDI. This opens up the possibility of usinf iQ Airport and the Apple iPad as a compositional tool.
