    能想的出這樣的主意也挺好的!只要將你的 MIDI 演奏檔案寄過去,他們會稍作個別音量等調整,然後經由 Yamaha 自動演奏鋼琴來錄製演奏,再將錄好的檔案寄給你。理論上可能還有不同距離的 mics 之類。大約ㄧ首ㄧ般長度的樂曲大約 $200 美金。

    Composers, songwriters, and musicians have come to rely on the speed and flexibility of working with MIDI and sample libraries for writing, editing and arranging their music. However, when it comes to laying down a piano part in the final mix, nothing beats the rich, detailed, and musical sound of an acoustic piano recorded with high-end gear in a great room. The solution? Use MIDI data, generated while monitoring piano samples, to trigger an automation-equipped acoustic grand for the final recorded track.

    Get Real Piano's Disklavier

    Edwin Dolinski, an accomplished classical pianist and former director of Electronic Art's Music Department - and long time Yamaha Disklavier owner - discovered that regardless what keyboard controller / sample set combination was used to make the original MIDI file, the resulting playback on the Disklavier was always somewhat disappointing. Inevitably, certain notes would be over-accented while others were barely audible no matter how precisely the Disklavier's MIDI channel volume was set. Not ideal.


    To overcome this, Dolinski experimented with adjusting the note velocity of each of the offending "outliers" to bring them in line with the musical context. Eureka! This manual intervention was the breakthrough needed to perfect the approach. "It makes a huge difference. By using our ears and pianistic intelligence in a patient and methodical manner, we can produce a more believable and musical result than has ever been offered before using this technology," he says. If done this way by a skilled operator, a MIDI-to-acoustic-piano-conversion using a Disklavier can indeed rival the real thing while easily surpassing sampled piano performances for perceived realism and richness of sound.


    Inspired by this discovery, Dolinski founded the getrealpiano.com website and began producing top-notch custom piano recordings from MIDI files on an ongoing professional basis. Now in its third year of operation, Get Real Piano has many satisfied clients from all around the world plus a growing list of appreciative repeat customers.


    The process is simple, but effective. Customers upload their Standard MIDI Files to the website, and the Get Real Piano team loads it into Digital Performer and feeds it to the Yamaha Disklavier for playback. Over the next few hours, the MIDI velocity values are continuously adjusted and auditioned by ear until the track sounds just right. All of the timing and feel of the original track remains completely intact throughout this process. Only the MIDI velocities are changed to match the dynamics of Get Real Piano's particular Disklavier.


    Once the performance is locked in, the 6' 1" Yamaha Disklavier DC3Pro acoustic grand is recorded in real-time with a matched pair of Neumann KM184 microphones, a Millennia HV-3C stereo preamp and a MOTU 896 digital interface. A third microphone - a modified Apex 460 large diaphragm tube condenser - simultaneously captures the sound under the piano. This extra mic produces a much darker sound and is sometimes useful for adding more punch when mixed under the main stereo track. The final step is to send the hi-res audio files back to the customer for approval and to respond to any requests for changes.


    Finished audio files from a single session can be available for download within 24 hours of submission. Visit getrealpiano.com for more information.

    這個真有意思!猛然想到,如果在台灣有一台這種自動演奏鋼琴,應該也可以作這種服務囉? :p

    小弟就有一台 YAHAMA 自動演奏直立鋼琴,不過是二十年前的初號機,驅動琴鍵的馬達幾乎只能表現 mp - f - ff 三種而已 ...

    不過他實際上提供的區隔是以鋼琴家的身份幫客戶 edit notes' MIDI volume,讓音樂在自動演奏鋼琴上聽起來比較像真實人的演奏。另外錄音室的空間與錄音技術等也是區隔吧!

    原來有差......話說這種自動演奏鋼琴要是能配合 iPad 選曲、WiFi MIDI data 傳送,應該就生活上是很不錯的娛樂。
