Live Performance was founded in 1992 by Wayne Stahnke, who has been inventing, designing, and building electronic reproducing pianos since the early 1970s. Perhaps the best-known of his instruments are the Bosendorfer SE pianos that were built by Kimball International in the 1980s under license from Stahnke. For many people, the Bosendorfer SE is synonymous with the Telarc two-CD set “A Window in Time,” Stahnke’s realization of Rachmaninoff’s 35 Ampico music rolls (recorded between 1919 and 1929) and played on a Bosendorfer 290SE instrument. From 1991 to 2001 Stahnke worked for Yamaha Corporation of Japan as a member of the Disklavier design team in Hamamatsu. He was involved in the design of the Disklavier Pro, Yamaha’s answer to the Bosendorfer SE (and a very fine reproducing instrument, we must add). Some of his patents also found their way into Yamaha’s non-Pro Disklavier instruments.

The Model LX is Live Performance’s latest product offering. It is the distillation of inventions and techniques developed and refined over the past 30 years, in combination with new approaches that were not possible as recently as a few years ago, until the advent of modern high-speed FPGA technology.
