The Pianoid prototype is built upon an FPGA Xilinx xc7vx690t. Here we present a version of a Grand Piano, covering three octaves. It replicates a fully functional Grand Piano soundboard with "upper" and "lower" strings cut off. There are two implications: some flaws in feedback, decline in lower part of the range. The range is defined by the computational power of the board.

We chose compositions fitting the existing range for this demo. Performed by Vitaly Nazarov.
