Some people may have followed my odyssey in the DIY real grand action controller? thread. It started two years ago with me researching the possibilities of creating my own MIDI controller from a grand piano action and optical sensors measuring velocity at hammers, similar to Yamaha AvantGrand and Kawai Novus. From that thread you will see that I was rather unprepared for that, had to learn electronics almost from scratch, had to learn how to do piano action regulation. I also had to learn how to work with wood and metals, etc. I'm also a father of a 2.5 year old, a software developer with a permanent job, and on top of that I purchased a Yamaha N1X one year ago. So, expectedly I didn't have a lot of time for this project which is why it took me so much time. But ultimately I managed to finish it (well I need to make a cabinet now). Whoever is interested, can follow details in that other thread. No more words, here's the result:

Absurdly impressive. How would you say it compares with, say, a Novus10?

Truly impressive, an awe-inspiring effort, and an awe-inspiring result. Congratulations!

And, also, beautiful playing. Inspiring in its own right.

As for a name ... CyberGenie?

Impressive work cybergene, it seems you nailed it.


A few questions, how does it compare to your N1x? How can I order one? How does it pair up with pianoteq? eek

Wow !

I'm in absolute awe. What's your next project going to be ? I can't see how you'll top that one !!!

If I could make a couple of suggestions, how about fixing cold fusion or if you get a spare afternoon, could you resolve the Grand Unification Theory ?


I'd be a far better pianist if I spent the time I'm on this forum playing my piano instead.
