Introducing Qtouch-TabletTM
5/20/2005

NAPLES, FLORIDA - - March 17, 2005 - - QRS Music Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: QRSM) today announced the introduction of the Qtouch-TabletÔ that can control and access QRS Pianomationâ music and player piano system from anywhere in a home. QRS recently announced introduction of NetPiano UnlimitedÔ that benefits directly from the Qtouch-TabletÔ technology.

The Qtouch-TabletÔ weighs less than 3 lbs and has a 10” touch screen display. With this compact 8.4” x 11.5” x 1” portable device you can also check E-mail and surf the Internet. The Qtouch-TabletsÔ 802.11G Wi-Fi communication link allows the customer to communicate with their Pianomationâ system from anywhere in the home. The Qtouch-TabletÔ comes with QRS’s Pianomationâ Media Player plug in for controlling basic piano playback features.

Tom Dolan, QRS Music Technologies president said, ” We are excited about all the advances in computer and wireless technologies that have had a direct impact on expanding the possible operational options for playing our music. Our Pianomationâ technology is keeping current in the advances of wireless technology, music delivery and familiar music player applications. The Qtouch-TabletÔ is the result of that technology.

“Imagine having NetPiano Unlimited’sÔ 2,400 titles available to play on a Pianomationâ system that can be operated from any room in the house. Customers can have music available to them for any mood they are in. The combination of NetPiano Unlimited’sÔ access to QRS’s entire library, Wi-Fi and the Media Player interface make it a snap to use at an attractive price,” he added.

The QRS Pianomation® system can turn any piano into a reproducing player piano. A hardware and software process can store and transport Musical Instrument Digital Interface (“MIDI”) information as an analog signal. This process gives QRS the ability to store, and wirelessly transmit, MIDI performance data in an analog format from a controller (CD, video, cassette, DVD, DAT or Minidisc) to the receiver on the piano. This creates numerous possibilities. For example, most off-the-shelf audio equipment has a left and right channel available for use. State-of-the-art technology permits QRS to store the digital signal in an analog format on the left channel of the software which operates those players. This leaves the right channel available for live prerecorded audio music, even vocal recordings. Pianomation® blends them together in perfect harmony and perfect synchronization. The Pianomation® MIDI System is the first product of its kind to “marry” analog and digital technology.
