Flexible stage piano that provides class-leading action, hundreds of great sounds, and superb real-time control that guarantees an outstanding live performance. It offers a variety of beautiful concert, jazz, and pop grand pianos, and a full-bodied traditional upright – appropriately voiced and mic’d for a broad range of musical styles. The class-leading Responsive Hammer II keyboard action recreates the touch of an acoustic grand, with realistic movement providing a smooth, natural playing experience. Triple-sensor key detection, ivory-like surfaces, and authentic let-off simulation ensure the piano’s performs like the real thing. It also offers a treasure trove of authentic tine, reed, and modern electric pianos, crunchy clavs, and a striking electric grand – lovingly sampled to preserve their characteristics and imperfections. User can play them clean, or plug into over 100 different effects, each with a variety of fully tweakable parameters. The piano’s powerful audio processor elevates sonic realism to another level with brand new, high resolution effects. User can apply richly modelled resonances to acoustic piano sounds, warm-up EPs with analogue-style amp simulations, and recreate distinctive reverb environments. The tone-wheel organ simulation, complete with 9 real-time adjustable drawbars, direct panel percussion controls, and authentic chorus/vibrato registrations are all provided, as well as four independently configurable zones for controlling internal sounds, external MIDI devices, or both at the same time. Sturdy hardware level faders provide immediate control over rich multi-voice layers, while improved split functionality allows any zone to be effortlessly split, or assigned to a custom key range. Studio quality strings, pads, basses, and other essential sounds are suitable for creating splits, layering with acoustic pianos and EPs, or for simply playing solo. A large graphic LCD display, four assignable real-time control knobs, and a well organised, immediately usable panel interface provide easy control. Elegantly finished wooden side panels, sleek gloss-black paintwork and a raised fallboard displaying the Kawai family name give the piano a distinctly acoustic presence. Its sturdy aluminium and steel chassis, and reinforced base reassure players that this instrument is built for the stage. An F-10H pedal unit, a music rest and a power cable are included.
