xiano / the modern digitalpiano


Xiano is a modern digital piano that integrates digital media sources such as laptops and tablets. It allows for enough space to place and interact with such devices resulting in a new market segment of digital pianos. Software based solutions let the piano be customized according to the users needs. Software updates and additional devices enhance the piano's value always keeping it up to date. Being connected in a such way allows the user to customize the key-tones, download and comfortably use tutorials, compose and record music.. Xiano combines the experimental nature of music with a timeless, classical, sustainable and modern product.
