It seems like the Physis is not being sold in the U.S.A.; I contacted the Physis team via their website regarding the instrument's availability in the states, yet never received an answer. The slab version with customized stand (speakers included) looks very nice, and eliminates the need for audio cables, monitors etc..; The stand looks very sturdy; perhaps firm enough not to wriggle under intense (hard) playing.

It SEEMS that Kraft Music is selling them now
I know, your comment was a while ago, I'm offering an update not a criticism laugh

It's all good. In terms of physical modeling, the more the merrier. Welcome home, Physis.

Yamaha and Kawai, are you listening? We want them physical models in your pianees.

Look at the date of brooster's post - the videos were uploaded to YouTube a few days earlier.

Looks like Kraft Music* (in the US) is offering several of the Physis Pianos here:

http://www.kraftmusic.com/sitesearch/?q=Physis%20Piano

Does anyone have one and what do you think?

*Piano(s) not "in stock" at this time.

Here's my reply on another current thread:

pv88, pmh:

I really wanted to write something quite detailed with links to recordings for you all to, err, enjoy?!...

There is so little info available on Physis and I wanted to try and do my bit to redress that situation. I will, but it will be a little bit time-consuming and I have been, and remain, tremendously busy at work. Bear with me, I will come up with something as soon as I can.

Very briefly, I think the Physis isn't quite there sonically but for some of the same and some different reasons, is enjoyable like the V-Piano can be enjoyable despite its failure to be a truly high-fidelity sonic representation of an acoustic piano. Most crucially, there is none of the weakness in the midrange that blights the V-Piano. One big difference is that within the whole breadth of the Physis sounds I feel there is something that could be the basis of a truly realistic and pleasant piano sound. I never felt that with V-Piano; I always had the feeling that they really needed to start again with the basic underlying tone of the thing. Physis is capable of being very superior to the V-Piano in that respect.

V-Piano has the better action and the dynamics feel more polished, slightly more linear, more finished if you will. I think Physis can come across as a bit raw in places, like it is still a 'work in progress' (which it is!). But I think there's something in Physis, something likeable. It can actually do quite warm and mellow with, to my ears, almost a suggestion of woodiness and that is entirely absent from other modelled sounds, especially PianoTeq.

Like I said, bear with me chaps for a more detailed thread...

If anyone has been playing (or, owns) the Physis Piano V100 please do give us your comments:

http://www.viscountinstruments.us/physis-piano-v100.html

What are the speakers like and how is the action?

just wondering...

i think this is the most sexy looking stage piano...
it sounds really great, with all the modeling
the triple action fatar is the best keybed fatar ever made (not a Kawai yet, but very acceptable)


So why do i get the feeling there is nobody on this forum plays and owns one?


Cant wayt to see where they take this in the future, love to see 4 layers and more models in a future replacement of this model

There is at least one owner!

I am going to do something on here about it but I've been too busy at work (and in my spare time working on an old car). I am enjoying Physis Piano very much but want to do a recording and a write up for the forum - when I get the time I will do so.

Cheers,

Steve

Finally found a good trustworthy review of the instrument

http://www.pianobuyer.com/fall14/134.html

I still think this instrument deserves much more attention... Lets hope Physis is succesfull enough to create an even more improved version of their engine, improving piano sounds and new versions of their engine for other instruments, like guitars, and strings and woodwind/brass..

Thanks for mentioning the Piano Buyer review, Bachus. I was surprised, given all the discussion of this piano on the forum, that so few people knew that we did a pretty comprehensive, independent review of the thing...

That is always the rub - those who can afford this stuff are too busy working... smile I found that to be a problem too. I am only now really getting around to getting serious about playing on a daily basis - because I retired recently. Hopefully, the work hours will subside and you get more time with your Physis.

Tony

Would be interesting to hear a recent firmware sample. I bought a Physis H1 about 1,5 years ago but had to return it for two major reasons:

1. The keybed was not up to par with my expectations/requirements.
2. There was something with the piano sound in the C4-C5 octave. It didn't sound wrong, but it felt wrong/strange. Extremely hard to describe basically, but it was something with the resonance.

1) i need to get my hands on the keybed, but i played a physis k4 briefly and that was on par or even better then my Kronos88.. Its not a Kawaii or Roland yet, but for a fatar it felt really good, better then any others..

2) with one or with all acoustic pianos? And how about the epianos and the other instruments? Could you get rid of it when edditing the sound? Sounds like an irregularity of the virtuall sound engine to me.. Was this before or after the major update of the sound?

1) Yeah, it wasn't bad, but playing classical on it didn't agree with me. There was a certain lack of fine control for me.

2) I mostly played the main patch, so I honestly don't remember. I could not get rid of it by editing. I know of one major sound update and that was done before I bought the piano as far as I know.
