Designed and engineered in Italy, Viscount Legend '70s provides incredible expressive capabilities with a customizable interface in a perfect portable solution. The combinations of easy-to-use powerful sound modules in a compact and vintage cabinet offers demanding musicians an instrument without compromise.
Legend '70s introduces, for the first time, the concept of a modular stage piano. According to your needs, you can now choose the right combination of sound-generating modules with dedicated knobs and buttons, including Electric Piano, Acoustic Piano, Clavi, Sound Collection and External. Many other modules will be available in the future within this ever-growing family.
The design of the Legend '70s hammer action keyboard perfectly matches the instrument's sound generators, with three three contact sensors under each key to detect every nuance of your playing at a high level of precision.
Legend '70s is equipped with a full complement of connections, including 5-pin MIDI, USB to host/device and several foot controller inputs.
The Legend '70s controls are powerful and easy to use. There is the Effects section, where you can control the reverb and a wide range of modulation effects, while in the Program section, with the support of a clear display, you can change different functions of the instrument. Moreover, in the Artist Extended models, an External module is included as interface for external devices such as another sound module or a computer with virtual instruments.
Each module installed in Legend '70s has its own sound generator specially designed to reproduce its sound set. This arrangement gives a great advantage over the whole instrument's polyphony, avoiding the 'sound generator processor share' that affects all competitors' sampled pianos when many sounds are played in at the same time. The Acoustic Piano and Sound Collection modules are powered by High-Definition Sampling technology that provides detailed sampling of acoustic instruments and the ability to reproduce the entire dynamic range of each instrument.
The Electric Piano and Clavi modules are powered by Viscount's patented Physical Modeling (PM) technology which through complex mathematical algorithms is able to reproduce with absolute fidelity the dynamic and physical/acoustic phenomena of the electric piano, giving you the most expressive and authentic performing experience. Experienced musicians know very well that almost all pianos on the market using sampling technology suffer from a 'slicing' problem, because for specific groups of keys and dynamic range they use the same sample! This approximation causes an annoying timbre discontinuity. Viscount PM technology does not have this problem at all, since for each key and dynamic level the sound is perfectly calculated through a precise mathematical model of the real instrument.
Legend '70s Editor is a free software program that makes programming all the parameters of the instrument easier and faster, allowing the most demanding users access to parameters that are not available on the instrument. It is also possible to save your settings and reload them whenever you want. Moreover, it provides dedicated environments for the use of the instrument during live performance. The software is available for both macOS and Windows operating systems and works with all models of Legend '70s.
