Generalmusic introduces GEM GRP800 digital grand piano

Featuring Generalmusic's exclusive Drake technology, the company unveiled its grand piano GEM GRP800 at Musikmesse Frankfurt 2005. Drake technology provides a real-time physical modeling system supported by a new large PCM database packed with high quality instrument samples, including the Fazioli F308 concert grand piano. The GRP800's advanced technology also reproduces vintage electro-mechanical instruments like Rhodes, Wurlitzer or Clavinet realistically.
To faithfully reproduce the distinctive acoustic properties of an acoustic piano, the piano sounds incorporate GEM's patented physical modelling algorithms like Damper Physical Model, Natural String Resonance, Advanced Release Technology and Filter Algorithm Dynamic Emulation (FADE). The on-board DSP provides various reverbs and other high quality effects for additional space and warmth of tone.
The GRP800 sports a weighted keyboard with Advanced Graded Hammer Action offering a playbility usually only avaialble with high end grand pianos.
Other useful features of the GRP800 include a digital metronome, a recorder (2 track, 20.000 event) to record and replay your performances, and an internal music library containing 50 known piano pieces. The music library allows the student to learn by playing each part separately at a comfortable speed. All scores are included in a sheet book.
Built from quality materials and including a sliding key cover, the GRP800's enclosure is designed to complement any ambience. Various high gloss cabinet finishes are also available. The sound system incorporates a 40W+40W amplification system.
