Alpha Piano has partnered with Porsche Design to create the mPiano, a keyboard revolution in an elegant design. mPiano is a touch-sensitive keyboard with adjustable key characteristics. The “m” stands for mechatronic piano. Beneath each key is high technology in the form of adjustable actuators that make the resistance and thereby the perceived weight of the keys adjustable. Moreover, the surfaces of the individual keys are touch-sensitive and can thereby be used as a controller.
In this model ACTOR, the long sought-after desire of many musicians has been fulfilled: having an instrument for many different areas of application.
The revolutionary model ACTOR breaks with all traditions of keyboard instruments known to date. Due to sophisticated electrical actuators, it is now possible to give keys an adjustable, mechanical character.
A world of undreamt of possibilities is open to artists. ACTOR allows the playing feel of a concert grand piano, a church organ, synthesizers or styles of one’s own creation to be experienced and felt. Unlimited possibilities, adjustable via the ACTOR app for tablets.
mPiano is currently concept study, but on the way to series production. It has already won a Red Dot Design Award and Lady Gaga has reportedly ordered a unit for her next tour.
