&& Personalizing Your Piano Sound (Piano Designer)

What is Piano Designer?

The HP507 allows you to personalize your piano sound by

adjusting various factors that affect the sound, such as the piano’s

strings, the resonance produced using the pedals, and the sound

of the hammers striking the strings.

This function is called “Piano Designer.”
