Next-Level Realistic Sound

The Symphony Grand II has 2GB of sounds—up to 64 times larger than similar digital grand pianos—for more lifelike sounds. Many other pianos record a short piece of a note, then loop that over and over as the note decays. For the Symphony Grand II, Williams recorded almost every note of a grand piano for its full duration, then recorded again and again at quieter and louder dynamics. The result is the natural sound of a concert grand piano, which moves and evolves subtly as the player holds down a chord. In addition to its incredible grand piano sound, the Symphony Grand II includes organs, keyboards, guitars, basses, strings, drums and much more.

The Feel of a Concert Grand

Williams worked with Fatar, the world’s premiere brand of keybeds, to create a great-feeling keyboard that responds to any dynamic performance. This hammer-action weighted response gives players the feel of a real piano, while also reacting to fast playing and volume shifts when performing other instruments. The eight-speaker sound system on the Symphony Grand II fills any room with beautiful music. Two subwoofers in ported speaker boxes provide solid bass, while additional speakers project sound from under the lid, just like a real piano. Two sets of headphone outputs are also provided for quiet practice sessions.

Interactive Teaching Tools

Above each key on the Symphony Grand II is a multi-color key light, designed for use with educational software, like the included Skoove LE. Connect to the Skoove app using USB or Wireless Bluetooth, and follow along through 100 free lessons. Lights above the keyboard follow the performance, highlighting mistakes to reinforce learning. The Symphony Grand II is compatible with hundreds of apps for Mac, Windows and iOS over USB or wireless MIDI.

Accompaniment Styles Pack a Band Inside the Piano

To turn piano playing into a complete music production, 180 accompaniment styles—including rock, blues and R&B—follow the performance. Dedicated keys allow players to add fills, move to a B section or add a big ending. The styles follow any chord change, and the 4.3" LCD display makes it easy to find the perfect choice for every situation. Players can also insert a USB stick full of MIDI files and play along. With a full band of drums, bass, guitar and an orchestra of instruments, the Symphony Grand II brings the pianist to center stage.
