The Moog PianoBar, a collaboration of Moog Music and synth pioneer Don Buchla, transforms virtually any 88-key acoustic piano into a wonderfully expressive new instrument.
What makes the PianoBar unique is the revolutionary, patent-pending technology utilized in the Scanner Bar. The Scanner Bar sits ever so slightly above the piano's keys; nothing touches the keys, leaving the touch and feel wonderfully unaffected. The Scanner Bar is less than 1/2 in. thick and rests against the fall board out, of the way of flying fingers. The Pedal Sensor rests underneath the piano's pedals to register their motion. The Scanner Bar and Pedal Sensor work together to capture the full range of your expressive touch -- from resounding chords to delicate passages.
The sensors feed the note and the velocity of the note to the Control Module where it is transformed into MIDI information and can be used to trigger over 300 built-in sounds. The configuration of MIDI is called a 'setup'. There are a total of 100 setups in the Control Module; 20 can be stored on the portable Library Card. A setup contains information about what sounds are played on the 16 MIDI channels, programmable zones, volume, velocity curves, and other functions. The Control Module's internal sound generator houses a large array of high quality sounds that can be played by the piano keys. These sounds, layered with the sound of the acoustic piano, can add an exciting new dimension to your playing. The PianoBar is portable and can be installed on virtually any 88-key piano -- it goes wherever you go. It all comes in a rugged carrying case for easy transport.
