Generalmusic's new grand piano the GRP800 features the exclusive Generalmusic's Drake technology, introduced in the Promega series professional digital pianos.
Generalmusic's team of sound design engineers have drawn from their years of expertise to produce a new, large high quality PCM database of realistic instrument recordings. Included is the Fazioli F308 concert grand piano. The real-time physical modelling system, made possible by DRAKE technology, also reproduces classic electro-mechanical instruments like Rhodes, Wurlitzer & Clavinet with reality. The acoustic 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).This exclusive technology reproduces the natural acoustic properties of a real acoustic piano,The internal DSP effect section generates various reverbs and high quality effects, adding dimensional spatiality and warmth to the instrument's overall sound. The GRP800 is equipped with a weighed keyboard incorporating an Advanced Graded Hammer Action for a realistic touch. The importance of music education and the documented benefits associated with this, encouraged Generalmusic's design team to incorporate functions to enhance the learning process and enjoyment. The digital metronome makes learning easier, offering a precise reference guide. The recorder (2 track, 20.000 event) allows you to record and re-listen to your performances. An internal music library containing 50 of the world's most famous piano pieces, all performed and recorded meticulously, provides educational benefits. The music library allows the student to study a piece of music, playing each part separately at a speed you're comfortable with. Packaged with the piano is a music scorebook containing all the pieces of the library. Italy is world-renowned for its design and style, incorporating elegance and functionality. The GRP800's cabinet is no exception, constructed with quality materials and finished with a sliding key cover, the GRP800 is designed to complement any décor or environment. Various high gloss cabinet finishes are also available. The quality sound system incorporates a 40W+40W amplification system, providing a crisp and powerful sound that has been digitally tuned to enhance the DRAKE technology.
