Kawai MP11 overview

  • 1Description

The MP11 from Kawai is a professional stage piano that provides an excellent piano experience using a variety of concert, jazz, and pop grand pianos, along with a full-bodied traditional upright, and all appropriate for a broad range of musical styles. Sounds can be played as is, or adjusted to taste using the Virtual Technician.

Additional sounds include authentic tine, reed, and modern electric pianos, crunchy clavs, and an electric grand, again all painstakingly sampled to preserve their characteristics and imperfections. Play them clean or apply over one-hundred different effects, including amplifier/speaker simulations that can be added as required.

The instrument features quality strings, pads, basses, and other sounds suitable for combining with acoustic and electric pianos using splits or layers, or for simply playing solo. Each voice can be adjusted using ADSR parameters, or fattened using the parametric EQ. Connecting the included triple pedal unit provides realistic damper, sostenuto, and soft playing control.

Professional grade XLRs are available for connecting directly to a house PA, while 1/4" connectors can be used for hooking up to personal monitors. Finished wooden side panels, gloss-black paintwork, and a raised fallboard give the instrument a distinctly visual presence, while an aluminum and steel chassis and reinforced base reassure players that the instrument is built for the rigors of the stage.

    Kawai MP11 reviews

    MP11 - Professional Stage Piano is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compared to Roland Rd800 I don't know what to say. I tried Roland RD800 and this Kawai MP11 and the keybed from Roland RD800 seemed to me so much more friendly than MP11. It was much easier to play the Roland than Kawai. The keys from MP11 are a bit heavier to press I think (and not so nice as Roland) but the sounds are better in my opinion. I wait for other reviews !
