The Golden Tone is now a Digital experience.
Introducing the e-Klavier, developed and designed in Leipzig, Germany by the pianomakers of Julius Blüthner Pianofortefabrik GmbH. Guided by the philosophy of Authentic Acoustic Behavior, the e-Klavier steps closer to the character of a true acoustic instrument than ever before.
Acoustic Piano Simulation
Blüthner has developed a unique approach to sound modeling that allows the e-Klavier to reproduce the advanced harmonics of the acoustic instrument. These sounds are further supported by effects such as Aliquot Resonance Modeling, Harmonic Damper Modeling and reverb for a more natural sound.
Harmonic Damper Modeling
The interplay between the tone and the dampers of an acoustic piano is a delicate relationship. With the advanced Harmonic Damper Modeling of the Blüthner e-Klavier series, one can hear the sound of the dampers lifting off the strings, and can control how much dampening takes place mid-note.
When Blüthner envisioned the simulation of a Blüthner Model One Concert Grand in digital format, preserving the warmth of the Golden Tone was paramount. The sampling was done in Leipzig, Germany with a new modeling technique designed by Blüthner. It is the crown of a stunning library of first generation sound samples, produced through Blüthner APS technology.
Blüthner Grand Touch
Developed to render the most versatile nuances, the e-Klavier features a quick action and well balanced synthetic ivory keys. The feel of the heavier bass hammers of an acoustic piano that lighten up through the treble are recreated in the 4-zone Graded Hammer design. This action design also gives a simulated feeling of hammer escapement and after touch.
