The heart of the GEWA Piano is the high performance board, which was developed by European hard- & software experts. A fully developed technique encounters true innovation.
256 voices - without any Sample-Loops. The new, extremely fast IC enables a much faster data release off the NAND-Flash memory. As a result you experience all piano functions in real sequence. Sampling without loops.
To address our fine sample library in the memory we need high tec on the sound engine. The German made mainboard uses a military grade IC that is able to address the memory ultrafast to achieve this unique sonic performance.The amplifier and power supply are also mounted directly on the board to save resources and make this an efficient and easy way to service the PCB.
The Steinway Concert Grand Piano D274 was recorded in a state of the art recording studio in Hamburg (Germany). More than a hundred samples were made. A sample is: the digital reproduction of one tone signal.
Thanks to the use of 3 contact points the “Concert-Pianist”-keyboard‘s resolution is on the level of a concert piano when it comes to weighting and repeat performance. The clearly defined and precise touch supports the virtuosic playing and is perfectly calibrated to the 6-layer samples.
With the VSRC you even hear the soundboard vibrating and the resonance changing inside the cabinet, as we recorded the full decay of every key in every sound layer. Sampling: A sample is the digital image of the complex sonic structure of a “sound”. We have recorded a Steinway D-274 concert grand piano in a “state of the art” recording studio in Hamburg to offer an unrivaled sound experience.Every key was recorded in multiple dynamic layers resulting in several hundred individual samples. Most importantly: We did not cut or loop the sounds afterwards giving them a virtual calculated decay to save space on the memory. So what you hear striking any key in a GEWA piano is the true sound with the full recorded decay of this fantastic Steinway instrument.
