QRS was founded in 1900 by Melville Clark (of Story & Clark piano fame) who developed the player piano as we know it today. QRS supplied music rolls to the player piano market, with production peaking in 1927, when QRS Music Company sold 10 million rolls.

The word “pianomation” is a combination of the words “piano” and “automation”. A QRS “pianomation” system makes an acoustic piano play completely automatically, including moving keys. It's also the modern and evolved version of the player pianos (pianola with ‘rolls’). The system can also record piano music and replay it. Furthermore, the piano can be synchronized with an iPad, iPhone, Smartphone of laptop. This perfect mix of tradition and innovation creates an all-embracing multimedia experience!


When a piano is equipped with pianomation, it can be used to its full extent: like any other piano it can be played by the pianist; however, if the pianist is unavailable, the pianomation system creates live piano music. A piano with pianomation always creates the right atmosphere, whether it is used in a restaurant, hotel bar or reception area, or in a private house. With your iPad, iPhone, Smartphone or laptop, you can access a complete music library recorded by well-known artists in many different genres (classical, jazz, diner music, etc.).


In the specifically equipped workshops, the technicians of Pianos Maene can fit out each grand piano and most buffet pianos with a pianomation system. This system consists of one or more of the following elements:

  • QRS Pianomation Engine: This is the heart of the system and consists of a processor module, a power supply unit and solenoid rails. In order to make your piano or grand piano self-playing a solenoid rail is installed under the keys. Using the central processor these solenoids are independently activated with 127 levels of expression. The damper pedal is controlled by a separate solenoid. However, it is important to know that the piano remains perfectly ‘live’ playable, including sustain and sostenuto pedals.
  • Operates on iPad, iPhone, Smartphone or laptop: unlike the former operating system of QRS (Ancho), you no longer need an external operating console (cd-player and remote control) to play music on your piano. Now, you can just use the music library on your iPad, iPhone, Smartphone or laptop, so a complete music library is always at your service whenever you want it. No internet is necessary, no iTunes is required. All music is available instantly when you want it, by the song, album, or collection. Easily customized playlists will deliver the perfect atmosphere.
  • Extension modules: QRS QSYNC coupler for DVD player. Through this module it is possible to synchronise DVDs with the piano. Enjoy your favourite pianist’s concert LIVE at home!
