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.
