QRS Music Introduces Serenade and Serenade Pro
8/7/2002

NAPLES, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 7, 2002--QRS Music Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:QRSM - News) announced today that the family of Pianomation(TM) systems has added two new systems.

They are the "Serenade" and "Serenade Pro."

The "Serenade" is a Slim Line CD controller that will play all of the QRS CD library as well as another CD library. The Slim Line "Serenade" is compatible to all existing Pianomation(TM) systems and therefore are interchangeable. The larger but more feature-packed "Serenade Pro" has a floppy, CD and hard disk drive. This unit comes with over 200 titles factory loaded on it's hard disk drive. It includes a 900 MHz wireless 2-way controller. Both of the "Serenade" systems will only be available to certain select dealers on an exclusive retrofit basis. Story & Clark is a QRS Music Technology company. Initial units have been inventoried for immediate shipment.

Tom Dolan, President and CEO, said: "Both of the 'Serenade' products help round out our Pianomation(TM) family. The Slim Line unit is only about eight inches wide and 3/4 of an inch high, making it almost invisible on a piano. For those customers that seek an ultra modern sleek look, this is the system. However, for customers that require greater capacity and versatility, the larger 'Pro' system provides the additional horse power."

Recently, QRS Music announced the introduction of the "Psalmist" that is an adaptation of the popular transportable Pianomation(TM) system known as "Playola." The 88-key "Playola" system was re-engineered into two units specifically for the Hammond B3 organ. The target customer is the church market.
