QRS Pianomation vs Pianodisc

Both the QRS Pianomation and PianoDisc Prodigy are designed to be installed in any instrument. Both systems can be operated wireless via a Tablet or Smartphone. Pianodisc Prodigy now also uses the latest Bluetooth protocol, which provides extra ease of use.

Both QRS Pianomation and Pianodisc offer a variety of options, including: speaker connections (Sonos pairing possible*), volume controls, and background orchestration. You can set your self-playing piano or grand piano to any sound level.

Both piano self-play systems are based on solenoid valves and plungers that are activated by a computer and which actuate the keys of the piano. The plungers and solenoids provide a realistic reproduction of the piano sounds.

Both QRS Pianomation and Pianodisc self-playing systems are an enrichment of your piano or grand piano. A so-called player piano system will extend the life of your piano or grand piano.

Both the QRS Pianomation and Prodigy from PianoDisc are compatible with any acoustic piano or grand piano and keep your piano or grand piano in line with emerging technologies. Both systems provide essential software (and hardware) updates to ensure that your self-playing piano or grand piano is ready for new possibilities. These updates guarantee that after purchasing a self-playing system you do not have to make a new investment after the release of changes and extensions. You only need to update your current self-playing piano or grand piano and you have an up-to-date self-playing system for your acoustic piano or grand piano.

Both the QRS Pianomation and the Pianodisc Prodigy system allow songs to be balanced. This applies if the song contains background music or vocals. Piano and audio tracks can be individually balanced, separated and optimized to fully maximize your playback experience.
Buy music for QRS Pianomation and Pianodisc.

At QRS you can rent the music on a subscription basis. You then pay a fixed amount per 24 or 60 months for the licenses. The advantage is that you can access the entire library at all times. You can also use it immediately when new music comes out. The music is downloaded IN the instrument and not in the tablet or in the phone.

Pianodisc works a little easier. You buy the CDs in the Pianodisc online Music Store. This way you only pay for the music you really want to listen to. This is of course also a one-off and there are no further subscription or license costs to pay. Pianodisc is therefore our preference for home use.

Question and answer about self-playing piano and grand piano

Does an automatic grand piano play as beautifully as a real pianist?
Yes, the Pianodisc system plays extremely accurately and can play very softly (and also very loudly). Even the lightest touch of the key is registered.
Will installing a Pianodisc system harm my instrument?
No. The slot that we have to make so that the electromagnets can touch the keys is very small and has no effect on the sound or stability of your instrument.
Can I also have a self-playing system built into my upright piano? Or is this only possible in a grand piano?
Yes, we can simply build in the system, depending on the size of your upright piano. Note that the Sync a Vision system is not possible on a upright piano as there is no room for the LCD desk.
Do you fancy a certain CD?
Within minutes you can easily (and cheaply) download it from the internet. Of course you can also order new CDs from us.
The system works with Itunes, can I also operate it with my I-Phone or I-pad?
Yes this is perfectly possible. We recently demonstrated this at Business Class on RTL7.
How much time does it take to install a Pianodisc system?
Our specialist is working on the installation for about 1 week.
Can the system be installed in my home?
No. Your instrument will be collected and transported to our workshop. After the system has been installed and fully tested, the grand piano can be returned.
How can I buy new music?
Nowadays you can easily download the music through a special program.
Is there a lot of music available? And in which genres?
Currently there are hundreds of titles available. Both classic and popular CDs. With or without guidance.
How much does a self-playing grand piano cost?

This completely depends on which type of system you choose, with or without screen, with or without Video function, etc. We can already offer a new grand piano complete with self-playing system (excluding transport costs of your instrument) for € 14.990 incl. VAT
