Gem Digital Pianos (No longer in production from June 2009)
The exclusive use of Generalmusic’s DRAKE technology in the new RP700 Real Piano, enables all musicians, from beginners to pianists, to
realize their total musical potential. Professional pianos powered by DRAKE have been acclaimed by leading musicians around the world, as the most realistic sounding electronic pianos ever created.
DRAKE technology and Sounds
Generalmusic’s team of sound design engineers have drawn from their years of expertise to produce a new, large highquality PCM database of
stunning realistic piano samples. The real-time physical modelling system, made possible by DRAKE technology, also reproduces classic
electro-mechanical instruments like Rhodes™, Wurlitzer™ and Clavinet™ with astonishing reality.
The acoustic piano sounds incorporate GEM’s acclaimed patented physical modelling algorithms like Damper Physical Model™, Natural String Resonance™, Advanced Release Technology™ and Filter Algorithm Dynamic Emulation™ (FADE). Simply put, this exclusive technology faithfully reproduces the natural acoustic properties of a real acoustic piano, resulting in what we believe to be the most realistic piano tone and feel ever created.
Keyboard feel and performance
The RP700 is equipped with a weighed keyboard incorporating an Enhanced Hammer Action, a feel normally associated with a grand piano. The realistic touch and high level of expressive control makes this instrument ideal for virtually any style of piano performance.
Cabinet and Sound system
Italy is world-renowned for it’s design and style, incorporating elegance and functionality. The RP700’s cabinet is no exception: with its
delicate contour and proportions, the practical sliding cover it complements any environment. The quality sound system incorporates a
40W+40W stereo amplification system providing a crisp and powerful sound.
Based on the proprietary DRAKE technology that raises the benchmark for all manufacturers to meet, the RP700 provides a level of authenticity never before available in this price range.
