Now, with PNOscan™, you can record music directly on your piano using state-of-the-art optical sensors that record every key motion with unparalleled accuracy and precision.
Sustain, Soft and Sustenuto pedals are equipped with optical sensors to record precise levels of incremental movement to faithfully reproduce every pedaling action as well. Importantly, PNOscan™ captures the full profile of movement of the key and pedal action over the course of a musical piece, providing a truly authentic recording of the expressive timing and dynamics of the individual pianist.
No interference to keyboard touch or response
PNOscan™ uses optic sensors, eliminating the concern among discriminating musicians that the mechanical interference of traditional recording strips can change the touch or response of the keyboard. With PNOscan™ there is no physical contact; optic sensors monitor the movement of each key, precisely recreating every detail of the original performance including the force, speed and duration of each note played.
A valuable tool for students and professionals
PNOscan™ is designed to be a valuable high-performance solution for discerning musicians and composers yet is reasonably priced enough and practical for everyday use by students, music teachers or anyone who wants to save performances or recitals. Recordings can be output as standard MIDI files or on the QRS Pianomation® system for more dynamic playback.
Designed for easy installation
The PNOscan™ unit itself is extremely sleek and low profile, and easy to install. Traditional recording strips can require precise height positioning and occasional keyboard modifications. These steps are unnecessary with PNOscan’s optical technology. PNOscan™ can be retrofitted on a piano you already own or factory installed on any new Story & Clark piano.
