Siri has been used in an unlimited number of things till now, thanks to Siri proxy and its creator Pete “Plamoni” Lamonic. But never has anyone used it for operating a grand piano. So now we are back for you with the news of that intelligent little virtual assistant, Siri being used to operate a grand piano.
Yamaha used some technological trickery to enable Siri to play a concerto on a Yamaha Disklavier Grand Piano.
They accomplished this task by converting a MIDI songfile into an audio file that the iPhone can play and connecting the audio output of an Airport Express to the analog input of a MIDI-enabled Disklavier piano, the iPhone can “play” the MIDI file via AirPlay and control the multi-thousand dollar piano.
Its too complicated, just skip it, have a look at the basics and jump on to watch the video of them playing it.
But if you are interested in reading the details, then The Loop’s Jim Dalrymple explained and described it a little bit:
Then, you simply ask Siri to play your favorite song from your iTunes library, and Siri responds immediately, by making the Disklavier’s keys and pedal move up and down, recreating the performance, including full orchestration.
Although these people did not use Siri Proxy, but if you want to do a same kind of thing, you can consider our guide over here for installing Siri Proxy and accomplishing some tasks like parking your car or controlling your whole room or something. And yes, making your coffee too!
