The remarkable sound of the AvantGrand is sampled from four different positions on a piano soundboard using our proprietary Spatial Acoustic Sampling process. Four beautifully sculpted speakers shape the natural tones, colors and harmonics to deliver the true sound of the original acoustic instruments.
Humidity? Temperature? Who cares? AvantGrand never goes out of tune, making it the perfect piano for every season.
Natural Feel, No Strings Attached
Our innovative Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) simulates the way the strings, soundboard and body resonate to reproduce the presence of an acoustic piano. Our Tactile Response System (TRS) recreates the subtle sensation you feel in your hands and feet while pressing the keys and pedals. Even when playing with headphones.
By day, it’s a world-renowned digital piano. By night, the neighbors won’t hear a thing. Our advanced binaural recording process recreates the tone, nuanced colors and resonance of our flagship Yamaha CFX or Bösendorfer Imperial in your headphones.
AvantGrand doesn’t just replicate the experience of playing a Yamaha acoustic piano. It uses the same mechanism and parts to deliver the action, weight and responsiveness the most demanding players crave.
AvantGrand connects effortlessly with your audio and MIDI devices for recording, live sound or broadcast and works with computers, mixing boards and Bluetooth®-enabled devices.
Our patented non-contact Optical Sensor System continuously measures the movement, timing, depth and force of every key attack and release to faithfully capture and reproduce the subtle nuances of your performance.
