And of course if you don’t play the instrument you can enjoy the thousands of titles that are available on the PianoMation app. New tracks are added all the time so you will never run out of the exiting new music to listen to and marvel at.

The latest developments in technology make playing pianos interactive and fun whether you are a beginner, an amateur or a professional. For a composer it opens up creative possibilities that otherwise would require a whole studio to be available.
Today’s player piano systems are marvels that capture the finest details of the live performance and are able to reproduce it almost identically.
QRS PNOmation state-of-the-art system utilized Direct WiFi (StandAlone mode) making internet connection irrelevant (the piano essentially has its own WiFi network) as well as Bluetooth connectivity to any device (any OS) which makes 3rd party apps seamlessly integrated with your piano – from YouTube and Finale to Garage Band.
Imagine your grand piano having its own computer brain. It also has full integration with Alexa and Apple Watch so you can talk to your piano. Log on as if it is in StandAlone mode, great for Wi-Fi client setup, loss of internet and any other access without an internet connection. In StandAlone mode you can communicate with multiple players or pianos on a network, choose auto updates, auto PNOcloud and PNOmation Cloud backups as well as smart home integration.

Lucid Pianos uses only the very best of the player pianos evolution: PNOmation (PianoMation) system.

PNOmation is designed to support the evolutions of its technology and therefore ensures that all subsequent upgrades to the system will have full integration capacity. This forward thinking guarantees that you will always have the latest and most advance features in the exciting world of self playing pianos.
BENEFITS OF FACTORY INSTALLATION
All quality player piano systems work best if factory installed. As the elaborate mechanism it integrated seamlessly into the acoustical instrument it requires special skills and know-how of trained artisans to carry out this process. Each grand piano has different micro components, dimensions and measurements making aftermarket installation potentially less-then-optimal when it comes to delivering the best possible results.
BEST IN CLASS SOLENOIDS
PNOmation uses longer fully encased solenoids, which deliver better sound at soft dynamic. They are also corrosion-free and are self-lubricating. The Controller User Interface is fully integrated into the body of the grand piano (or upright) so there is no visible ‘box’ hanging anywhere on the instrument. The actual technology is seemingly simple – as all things genius. The solenoid is installed at the back of the key and the infrared optical sensor determines the velocity and speed of the impact. It simply pushes up on the key end (conversely to finger striking it downwards) which activates the hammer which strikes the string. Clearly there is much more to it than just that. In today’s self playing pianos the super computer calculates the nano-seconds’ of the action to make sure the results are indistinguishable from the live performance.
