I & II

Godfried-Willem RAES


Technical Description Player Piano I


This instrument requires a normal 230Volts / 1300Watt mains connection. The control computer should always be setup centrally in front of the keyboard and connects to the playing mechanism with four thick bundles of flatcables. The module accepts normal midi input, but files considered for playing should always be passed to our staff prior to being played. There should be no unsupported controllers in the files and any note-on command should be strictly followed by a corresponding note-off command. The instrument is fully polyphonic (88 notes) and has a 7-bit velocity control for each individual key. The resolution, internally however is 16 bits. Velocity scaling is not linear and depends both on the type of piano and on the hammer weigth for the notes to be played.

Musical range:


Note for organizers:

the player pianos I and II will always and only be operated by a qualified technician or musician from the Logos Foundation. So, the instruments will not be rented out on their own. (Don't even ask). The insurance value for these instruments is 17.000 €. The grand piano itself has always to be provided by the organizer. No modification on the piano itself is required. Placement of the instrument on the piano is absolutely harmless to the instrument. Note that the music requires the piano to be in top condition and well tuned.

Transportation of the robot is possible with any normal sized car. The case of the mechanism measures 1400mm x 200mm x 200mm for <Player piano 1>, and 1320mm x 150mm x 150mm for <PP2>. The control computer for player piano I is build into a 6 unit 19" rack. For <pp2> it is a much smaller module containing only the hefty power supply. The Vorsetzer case is very heavy (47kg) and requires 2 people to be lifted up and carried. Installation on the piano takes less than five minutes.

Please note the technical requirements with regard to the piano: 88 keys grand piano and a free flat space on the left and on the right side of the keyboard of at least 31 mm.

Although it is possible to place the Vorzetzer on an upright piano (provided it has 88 keys), we strongly advize not to do this. Upright piano's have much lower repetition speeds than grands and very many of the music files and compositions we have for the player piano are unplayable on an upright model.

Technical Description <Player Piano II>

In this model, <pp2>, the key controlling electronics could find a place in and on the Vorsetzer chassis itself, on the backside of the solenoid assembly. Therefore, the mechanism is slightly heavier than the first model. Only the hefty power supplies remain in a separate box to be placed under or inside the piano. Automated note repetition is an extra feature, added in 2016, of this model. Two different power supplies were designed and build for this mechanism:

Model 2005: Rated 24V (velocity voltage) and 12V (hold voltage) , in total 1200 Watt. This power supply is a lot lighter (ca. 5 kg) than the control computer used for player piano 1. This power supply fits in a normal attaché case. The voltages cannot be controlled externally. This PS neither delivers the required 5 V voltage required for the operation of the microprocessors on the mechanism. At first, we derived the 5V from the 12V hold voltage. This was not such a good solution as it caused processor resets on overloads on the 12 V hold voltage. To overcome this we redesigned the power supply in 2016. The advantage of this power supply is that it operates in complete silence, as we disabled all fans.

Model 2016: This power supply offers a lot more features and possibilities. First of all, it's a lot more powerfull and allows for all 88 notes to be depressed simultaneously. Furthermore the operating voltages for hold and velocities can be controlled with MIDI commands. Thus it becomes easier to adapt the characteristics to different brands of pianos. An inconvenience of this power supply is that, due to the high power it can deliver, we could not go without fans. These will startup under higher load conditions and thus cause some noise. A mechanism to operate the right pedal is available as well and is conceived as a separate robot. (Insurance value: 1.500€, weight 35kg) For detailed specs, click on the link above). This pedal can only be used with the last model as the microprocessor for it now found a place inside the new (2016) power supply.

The circuit for the control of 10 piano keys came out like this:

A single vorsetzer mechanism needs nine of these circuit boards. The midi input board, with 9 TTL midi output signals to feed the boards above and incorporating a simple +5V dc supply for them look like

The 5V dc voltage was in our 2004 model derived from the positive hold power supply. This introduced a small risk: in case of power supply overload due to a too large amount of keys pressed together, this power supply may go in safety shut down, leading to a reset cycle on all the PIC controllers. The new model power supply designed in 2016 circumvents this problem. However, it requires a 5-conductor cable for the midi input, as this cable is also used to transport the +5V voltage for the microcontrollers. In 2023, we removed the 6N138 optocoupler as it became a bit unreliable and its function had become obsolete, since there is an optocoupler now already on the main module. This is the wiring: The rightmost midi-thru connector on the pedal module is wired for +5V power delivery to the vorsetzer.

A separate pedal robot was designed between 1994 and 2016 to be used in combination with both models of player piano. It is documented on a dedicated webpage: Piano Pedal Robot.

Source code for the PIC firmware, version V3.1, 2016 by Godfried-Willem Raes. Compiler: Proton+

The lookup tables in the firmware for the repetition frequencies as well as for the non-linear velocity scalings that can be used with program change commands, were generated by our own simple untility software. This compiles under PowerBasic Console Compiler, version 10. Here is the source code. Here is the executable. Here is the output of the program. This software only runs on Windows PC's!

Construction log for Player Piano II:

Notes on the calculation of the power supply capacity:

If we take solenoids with a DC resistance of Rdc = 19.1 Ohm and we want full polyphonic (88 notes!) playing capability, the maximum current the hold-power supply (here nominal specified at Uh=12V) should be capable of delivering is: Imax = 88 Uh / Rdc = 55A, or in power terms: 660Watt.

If the automate should not be capable of surpassing human polyphony on the piano, we can content ourselves with 20 note polyphony, including fist and clusterplaying by humans. In that case the power supply requirements become Imax = 12.6A and Pmax = 151Watt.

In our practical design for pp2, we went for a Sunpower 12V/50A power supply and trimmed the output voltage down to 10.5V. This value should ideally be chosen such that when a key is depressed with velo=1, we hear nothing. Unfortunately, this value is greatly dependent on the adjustment of the piano itself. On worn out pianos one would need a specific voltage for every single key in order to allow for reliable silent depressing of keys. With the abovementioned practical values, we can depress all keys together without going over the ratings of the power supply, since it will draw just 48.4A.

The calculation for the requirements on the velo-power supply are a little more complicated. A first limiting factor is due to the fact that data are transmitted to the player piano in a serial (midi) format. If the note-on messages flow in neck to neck at the full midi baud-rate of 31250b/s, the minimum time between the starts of any two note-on commands will be 952 microseconds. Thus a command to play all 88 notes at once will take a minimum time of 83 ms. We will hear this as a fast arpeggio. This is unavoidable although the effect can be greatly masked by sending all the notes in such clusters out of order.

If we scale the duration of the 1-127 velocity range from midi on pulse-times in the range 156 microseconds to 20 ms, the consequence is that given the limitations of midi, we can have a maximum of 20 ms / 952 µs = 21 overlapping velo-pulses. If we use a 24V power supply, the current required from it is thus reduced to: 21 . (24V / 19.1) = 26.4 A, or in power terms : 633Watt.

The total peak power required for the automaton becomes thus 660W + 633W = 1293W.

Practical SMPS selection (2005):

Both power supplies need modifications in order to make them silent. As they are, they are well enclosed (understandable for safety reasons...) and cooled with a small 'made in Taiwan' but strong and extremely noisy fan. Completely unacceptable for concert use of course. The fan is connected internally to the main PC board with a small 3-pin receptacle. The black wire connects to the negative power output, the red one feeds the 12 V rated (140 mA) fan motor and the yellow one seems to be some kind of sensor. In the way this operates, both power supplies are quite different. On the 12 V/50 A model, if you mechanically block the fan or unplug the connector, the power supply shuts down. It needs to see a voltage no smaller then 50 mV on the yellow connection. So we replaced the fan with a resistor of 100 Ohms / 2 Watt in series with 0.47 Ohm.

On the 24 V/25 A power supply, it seems one can disconnect the fan connector without replacing it by any kind of dummy. The voltage we found here on the yellow sense wire is 22.9 V. For cooling we removed the top covers of both power modules and constructed a new cover from perforated metal sheet, for natural convection cooling.

Power Supply, model 2016:

In this design a XP-Power HDS800 series SMPS power supply is used for the hold voltage. With its current capacity of 66 A, there are no longer limitations on the number of keys that can be held down simultaneously. Note that if this possibility is used, it is mandatory to clamp the Vorsetzer on the piano. Otherwise, the Vorsetzer will lift itself off the piano as the total force will be 686 N. The full type number for this power supply module is HDS800PS12. Here is a circuit overview of the new design:

And here is the PCB:

The soldered board looks like: and its backside:

The hold voltage is now controllable with midi controller #90. At startup the default setting will correspond to a hold-voltage of 10.5V. This guarantees compatibility with music software and midifiles using the previous version. On reception of a power down command, the controller will return to this default value. Also, after power down, both hold- en velo voltages will go to zero. A big advantage of the new circuit is that now it becomes possible to realize fully silent depressing of keys. However, the hold voltage required to obtain this is very dependent on the piano used. The exact value set with controller #90 can be read from the panel voltmeter on the power supply. A manual adjustment for the velocity voltage is provided as well. This makes it a lot easier to adapt the robot to the gamut of pianos it gets to play.

Controller #91 can be used to control the velo-pulse voltage. As the negative power supply has its positive output grounded, all control's for this module are floating with respect to ground. Hence an optor circuit (LED-LDR combination) is used in the circuit. The type number for this somewhat esoteric component is VTL5C1. Here is the datasheet. The current through the LED with the 220 Ohm series resistor is limited to 13.6 mA. The On-resistance of the LDR will then be in the order of 500 Ohms. The off-resistance is 50 MOhm. The enable input to this power supply is switched via an small reed-relay.

The firmware for the microcontroller on this board is here.

This power supply is mounted in a 19" rack chassis with an enclosure with four small wheels. The microcontroller for the piano pedal also found a place in this enclosure. Details on the realisation of the pedal can be found in the special webpage devoted to the development of the pedal mechanism. Here is the detail for the DIN connector to the pedal assembly:

Timing constraints for the note repetition feature implemented with the note pressure command (2016):

The newest boards use a more advanced PIC (an 18F4620) and can control 14 notes each. With this board, only 7 boards are required for a full 88 keys keyboard. The boards are available from the logos foundation. Detailed descriptions can be found on our page on <Qt>, since this 6-octave quartertone organ robot uses the same boards.

In august 2014 we designed new boards, each covering a full octave. These boards allow for a much wider supply voltage range and since we made them single sided, a lot cheaper to produce. Here is the PC-board layout: A new version of the firmware was developed as well, using the Proton+ compiler and the Microchip MPLAB environment.

The power connections are designed for mounting on 10 mm wide red copper rails. For a player piano, 7 boards are required and an aditional small board covering the top 4 notes. The firmware for the PIC controllers is available as well.

The white LED SMD light strip under the solenoid assembly consumes 4.5W and operates on 24V. Note that it has the positive pole connected to ground! Farnell order nr: 2214000

A similar red light strip is mounted on the inner side of the front of the solenoid assembly.

Red LED strip on the power supply 2016 module is produced by DMS, part nr. 1226695 (www.omc-uk.com) It operates on 12V and has 32 SMD led's.

The analog panel voltmeters are Voltcraft, order nr.10 30 75 (for the 15V meter) and 10 30 76 (for the 30V meter).

Sales and orders:

At Logos Foundation Labs we have a limited capacity for the production of robotic instruments. People interested in ordering a complete piano vorsetzer should know the cost will be in the order of 17.000 Euro's and delivery time maximum 6 months. We have also designed Vorsetzers for other keyboard instruments such as spinets, harpsichords, clavichords, Hohner pianet and pipe organs. Enquire for possibilities and details.
