anyone know how is musician recording on the spirio system for users? from the steiway website i read they have musician in their recording studio every month from time to time and release some new music every month, but my understanding is the if you use the Spirio R the system take down the velocity, tempo, speed even pedal action. why do you need to go recording studio then?

Danx16,

Are you asking why Steinway artists would go to a studio to make the Spirio recordings that Steinway will later distribute to Spirio owners, or
are you asking why Spirio owners would go to a studio to record their own performances?

I am asking why Steinway artists would go to a studio to make the Spirio recordings. since they seem can do it at any place as long as they have the spirio R in their Grand piano.

Very few Steinway artists have a Spirio R in their home. Most artists on Steinway's roster have owned their Steinways for years, so you have to bring the artist to the system.

The until very recently, only the Spirio player system was available to the public. The only Spirio R's were in Steinway facilities. The Spirio R's in private hands only record for your personal use. I don't think there is a way to share those publicly. The recordings for general public are still recorded by Steinway artists in Steinway facilities.

Thanks, Sam, GC13. so in other words, nowadays besides artist don't access to Spirio R at their home or studio. the method Steinway record those recordings are simple using the Spirio R system without additional Mic or recording device.
what I m trying to say is the Spirio R is as good as your record in Studio besides the professional studio have better sound isolation.

Definitely, if you have a Spirio R, you can make as fine a recording on your Spirio R as if you go to another location to record. If you want to record on a Steinway D Spirio R, then you probably need to go to a studio, since those are much less common in a home. When I tried out a Steinway Spirio R at my local dealer, the recording process was very straight forward. Just push the start and play and then push the stop. However, if you wanted to edit the performance, you needed to go into the software and correct a missed note, or change the tempo slightly, or change the dynamics. Not easily intuitive, at least for a novice in the use of the software like me. So my guess is that Steinway wants to release note perfect performances for their catalogue of Spirio performances. So when an artist goes to a recording location, I would surmise that Steinway has a person there who can help the artist edit the performance - someone not available at the artist's home, even if they have Model D Spirio R. I went through their catalogue and most of the performers were not well known artists, although there were some pieces by Yuja Wang (shorter pieces - not the Hammerklavier - at least not a year plus ago). So I would guess it is very unlikely that these artists could afford a Spirio R in their homes or apartments. Also some of the Spirio performances are also captured on video, so those would have to be in a studio (the sound still comes from the Spirio playback).
