  • CLASSIC ELECTRIC PIANO - AVANT is a bold transformation of the electric piano. Selected for its distinctive sound and influential musical history, we began with a classic Mark II electric piano and rediscovered the best-kept secret under its hood.

  • UNIQUE PERFORMANCES - The inner components of this iconic instrument were isolated, and captured through pristinely prepared performances using hammers, ebows, twine, and picks.

  • ENDLESS CONTROL - With the powerful and flexible interface, the sound sources in AVANT can be taken to an entirely new level, allowing for complete customization by layering, modulating, and processing up to three different sources at the same time.
