All Hoffmann and Kuhne Piano Disc units come with the SILENT DRIVE Patent System:
This important, built-in feature allows precise control of the piano's keys and pedals for greater fidelity, expression and low-volume control.
SilentDrive ensures that all Hoffmann and Kuhne player grands play with life-like expression, and sound remarkable even at whisper-soft volume levels.
SilentDrive is an exclusive, patented technology. Its four boards consist of one CPU (central processing unit) and three custom ASIC (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit) chip-driven boards. The boards communicate using a type of serial information link that runs faster than MIDI. This electronic link allows for the almost instantaneous changes to the solenoid's speed when a new command is given.
With SilentDrive, the Hoffmann and Kuhne PianoDisc systems play at much quieter levels, with whisper quiet movement of the solenoids and incredible dynamic expression.
