INTERFACE

Interface

The exclusive multi-touch control panel lends elegance and functionality to the instrument.

There are NO BUTTONS on this specially-designed multi-touch glass panel. You can even control and edit the color configuration! The high-resolution graphic display gives you easy access to visual editing – making even the most complex parameters of Physis®’s algorithms easy to understand and modify. The Physis piano includes a Patented multi-touch control panel that is a joy to use. The ‘Special Touch’ backlit black-glass panel includes a high-resolution graphic display – making even the most complex parameters of Physis’s algorithms easy to understand and modify. You’ll find the tactile response of the panel simple, immediate and impressive. The graphic interface is completely customizable – so you can choose and edit the number of active icons and even the color configurations.

KEYBOARD

Keyboard

Physis Authentic Grand Key Action reproduces the touch and feel of a concert grand piano.

The PHYSIS Grand Keyboard is specifically designed to integrate perfectly with the sound-modeling of the Physis piano. The touch, praised by piano purists, makes you forget this is a digital piano! Thanks to ‘Graded Hammers’, the weight of the hammers gets lighter as you progress up the keyboard – created by the diminishing size/density of the hammers as you progress up the piano keyboard. There are 3 sensors per key – detecting key movements with absolute precision – and comparable to a traditional concert grand piano,

Tactile “Ivory Feel” Keys provide a heightened sense of ‘feel’.

Keyboards made of ivory, historically used in high-class pianos, are known for their organic touch and tactile nature. This provides a wonderful ‘feel’ under your fingers. The Physis Grand Key Action has been designed with a specially formulated synthetic ivory to perfectly emulate this tactile feel of real ivory. The keys have a soft, slightly porous surface which gives great adhesion and natural friction as you play. These characteristics are particularly useful and pleasant during performances or long practice sessions. A key advantage of this specially-formulated synthetic ivory is it’s maintenance free and easy to keep clean.

“Real Wood” piano keys for additional realism.

As in the traditional acoustic grand piano, Physis piano keys are improved with Real Wood piano keys. These keys are made of carefully selected and seasoned wood. The meticulous process removes any defects or deformations to provide maximum conformity giving the piano keyboard ultimate stability over time.

SOUND GENERATION

SOUND GENERATION

The Physis Piano generates sound through a Patented system of mathematical algorithms. This process reproduces with absolute fidelity the dynamics and physical-acoustic phenomena of the piano – giving you the absolute most expressive and authentic playing experience.

Taking over 7 years of intense research, the Physis Piano contains six different sound generation algorithms: Acoustic Piano Model (APM), Electric Piano Model (EPM), Wurly Piano Model (WPM), Harpsichord Piano Model (CPM), Mallet Acoustic Model (AMM), High Definition Sound Engine (HDSE). This sound library has been designed and optimized to give you a set of reference sounds of a fidelity never experienced before. The expressive possibilities of the Physis Piano are limitless. This instrument gives you not only a great control over the sound, but also endless customization. You can create your own piano – modifying the length of the piano, the resonance of the strings, the morphology of the hammers and much more! Or, configure your own electric piano – modifying the position of the transducers or the size of the tone bar. Everything thanks to the amazing internal computational power which is estimated at up to 24 BILLION calculations per second!

Every Physis Piano sound is customizable.
The instrument has 192 ‘ready-to-use’ preset sounds – with many more available for you to customize to suit your tastes and needs. These sounds can be combined in ‘Dual’ and ‘Split’ modes. Your combinations can easily be saved in Memory. You’ll find programming of sounds both powerful and intuitive. Thanks to physical modeling, there are new and limitless possibilities to create your own sounds.  The power is in your hands to create exactly what you want!

Dynamics of the Timbre and your touch are intertwined

Physis Piano’s Physical modeling technology offers numerous advantages when compared with traditional and commonly used ‘sampling’. One of the advantages is the continual variation of the timbre in real-time while you play it. When you play an acoustic piano the intensity of the touch affects not only the volume, but also the tone. This is an ongoing, organic process. Physis technology accurately reproduces this phenomenon by reacting continually and proportionally as you modify your touch. Sampled pianos have clearly perceptible discontinuities in timbre and dynamics related to the samples used for different key velocities.

AMPLIFICATION

Amplification

A specially designed sound system provides absolute clarity and natural resonance. 

When playing a grand piano you experience the psychoacoustics of a typical spread of sound in space. The 6 speakers and the 4-way sound system of the Physis Piano are able to reproduce this “three-dimensional” perception with acoustic clarity and beauty. This specially designed sound-reproduction system combines with the exceptional nature of physical modeling to give you and the listener the realistic sense of an acoustic piano.

CONNECTIONS

Connections

A system of complete “connectedness”.

In addition to standard MIDI, audio and headphones, the Physis Piano G1000 is provides you two USB connections (host and device). Through the latter you can connect a computer or tablet and unlock a world of possibilities with 3rd party music applications. Through the USB host port you can connect a USB thumb drive to save or load all types of Physis data  (Sounds, Memories, MIDI, Songs). You can even save and share your physical model settings with friends!

PEDALS

Pedals

The Physis piano pedals allow precise control and unlimited nuance of the sound.

The pedals of the piano are very important elements in controlling the overall quality of the music you play. The pedals in the Physis piano have unlimited expression so, for example the Gradual Damper gives you unlimited control and coloring over your physical-model piano sound. In fact it’s possible to achieve “acoustic like” properties like “half-pedaling” as well as any other pedal shading you may desire. In addition, all three pedals are programmable  providing you even more versatility.
