Alesis NanoPiano QS Composite Synthesis Module

   (1 review)

All Your Essential Pianos and Keyboards.

If you play keyboards, you know that the true test of a great synthesizer is its ability to accurately emulate the sound of a world-class acoustic piano. With the NanoPiano™, Alesis brings you the rich, ultra-realistic grand piano sound of our QS8 Master Synthesizer in a compact, very affordable sound module. In addition to dozens of piano varieties for all music styles from classical and jazz to rock and dance, you'll also get a collection of other sounds that complement the piano timbres independently or as layers and splits, including organs, electric pianos, vibes, clavs, strings, synth pads and voice programs. The NanoPiano also offers true 64-voice polyphony and onboard four-bus multieffects based on our great-sounding MidiVerb 4™ processor. Whether you’re playing solo piano on stage or need to update your piano sounds for composition and sequencing, the NanoPiano has everything you need at a price you can afford.
