100% acoustic instrument + 100% digital possibilities
Enjoy that unmistakable C. Bechstein sound through your headphones while your piano is muted, whether you want to avoid disturbing others or just to be your only audience. This is possible thanks to the free Vario app that expands your acoustic piano by the addition of handy features for practicing, recording, and sharing your music.
But the new C. Bechstein Vario does more than just mute your piano. This digital system is a holistically designed solution that leverages the qualities of your acoustic instrument and complements them with a number of applications.
The digital Vario system is available for all current models of C. Bechstein brands, whether installed at the factory or retrofitted by a certified dealer. The Vario Duet is made up of several components that together form a truly innovative system.
• The hammer rail is tailored to the instrument and prevents the strings and soundboard from generating any sound.
• The sound module brings the piano's music to life in your headphones, which are included in delivery.
• State-of-the-art electronics connect your instrument to a number of digital applications on mobile devices to let you creatively enrich your playing.
Getting more out of every note
With today's technology, recording and sharing your music is child's play.
It's so easy to connect your instrument to apps on smartphones, tablets and PCs, whether using Bluetooth or the advanced USB-C standard, to add creative possibilities that go beyond piano playing. The intuitive Vario app is the central component of the Vario experience. Compatible with both iOS and Android, the Vario app enables unlimited recording, makes it incredibly easy to share your music, and delivers a wealth of additional features.
The Vario app is available for all mobile devices with Apple iOS and iPadOS built in 2015 or later. A version for tested Android devices with the new Vario control functions will be available free of charge in early 2020. Moreover, MIDI functions are available in all mobile and desktop operating systems (Windows, macOS, Unix/Linux), independent of the Vario app.
