Williams Announces Symphony Grand
Affordable weighted-action digital piano delivers upscale looks and sound.
Thousand Oaks, CA – March 2016…Williams, a leader in versatile digital pianos, has introduced the Symphony Grand digital piano. This micro-grand-style, 88-key, graded hammer-action instrument offers a luxurious ebony gloss finish, a stylish matching piano bench, and a realistic sound and feel.
The Symphony Grand features a custom hammer action keybed for authentic response and playability, offering 174 voices (192 MB of ROM samples) including 128 General MIDI sounds and 46 from Williams’ exclusive, high-definition Custom Sound Library. The Custom Sound Library features sounds sampled from a famed Italian grand piano, as well as a wide selection of vintage electric pianos and organs. With 128-voice polyphony, you can play naturally, and notes will never be abruptly cut off.
This new digital grand piano offers new realistic effects to recreate natural reproduction of a real piano such as adjustable sustain pedal noise, key release noise and a specially designed sustain layer that reproduces sympathetic resonance when you depress the sustain pedal. These features give the Symphony Grand an exquisitely realistic sound and feel. A Mod/FX feature delivers authentic rotary effects on organs and vibrato on electric pianos. A 6-speaker stereo sound system ensures every note sounds rich and clear.
The Symphony Grand is a thoroughly modern instrument, equipped with Bluetooth® audio input, USB/MIDI connection for recording and use as a controller, and a USB Host port that plays MIDI files from a USB thumb drive. A built-in two-track recorder makes it easy to capture your performance. Of course you also get MIDI I/O, stereo ¼-inch and RCA audio inputs (for MP3 players and the like) and outputs, and a headphone jack.
The Symphony Grand includes 120 Style Arranger songs in various genres for real-time playback, along with intros, fills, variations and endings for interactive performance. You can easily create keyboard splits and layers and transpose to any key.
A great choice for music education, the Symphony Grand features a Song Tutor that teaches an assortment of classical, rock, and blues songs. For even more in-depth lessons, Williams has partnered with McCarthy Music to provide cloud-based piano education with a large online music library for every skill level. An onboard metronome helps players develop an accurate sense of time and tempo
