Proposal titleNotion of a soft playing piano

AbstractThe sound amplifying by an electronic measuring of the string's oscillation or the complete

electronicgeneration of the sound does not lead to a natural sound. (Result from CRAFT

BRST-CT98-5250) The objective of this proposal is the development of a new piano

action with an individual volumecontrol device for an original sound of a piano. For the

realisation, microsystems as dampingsystems are planned to develop to be installed into

the piano action to reduce the force of the pianohammer to the string. Because of the

reduction of sound pressure level, the bass tones are particularly influenced. Therefore, a

softly played piano does not sound balanced over the complete audio range. Restyling the

sound management in the piano case can compensate this problem. Here, the use of the

sound systems applied in loudspeakers, as e.g. the bass reflex system, is offered. Objective

is the development of a piano cabinet that allows approximating the sound of agrand piano

on a normal piano.
