Kawai MP7SE overview

  • 1Description

The MP7SE Stage Piano from Kawai is an 88-key digital piano featuring a graded-hammer-action keyboard with synthetic ivory keytops designed to emulate the feel of an acoustic piano. It can be used in several environments with its authentic tine, reed, and modern electric pianos, crunchy clavs, tonewheel organ with drawbar control, and natural electric grands for professional musical applications.

Each key is painstakingly recorded, analyzed, and reproduced as a digital waveform and preserves the harmonic character of the EX concert grand piano sound. The MP7SE's ivory touch keys deliver a faithful representation of the original acoustic source, giving you the feel and touch of an acoustic grand piano experience.

This stage piano is built with eight sound categories: piano, electric piano, drawbar, organ, strings/vocal, brass/wind, pads and synths, and bass/guitar sounds that are organized as independent sections. In addition, the effects section is equipped with reverbs, resonances, and other effects. The intuitive panel of the MP7SE has four independent zones, allowing multiple sounds to be intuitively layered together, split, or assigned to a custom key range.

Finally, the MP7SE is built with a sturdy steel and aluminum chassis. It is designed with 1/4" and XLR outputs, 1/4" inputs, and 4-channel MIDI master control functions. An F-10H pedal unit is also included. The MP7SE has everything you need—a realistic acoustic sound, authentic other sounds, and articulate control for music professionals who do not accept compromise.

Responsive Hammer III Keyboard
The MP7SE's Responsive Hammer III (RH III) keyboard action recreates the touch of an acoustic grand piano, with its realistic movement and accurate 3-sensor technology providing a smooth, natural, and highly responsive piano playing experience. The weight of the keyboard is appropriately graded to mirror the heavier bass hammers and lighter treble hammers of an acoustic piano, while structural reinforcements within the action assembly ensure greater stability during fortissimo and staccato passages.
Pianos for Concert, Pop, and Jazz
The MP7SE captures the sound of Kawai's SK-EX, EX, and SK-5 acoustic grand pianos, with all 88 keys of these instruments meticulously recorded, analyzed, and faithfully reproduced using proprietary Harmonic Imaging technology. With separate categories for Concert, Pop, and Jazz playing, the MP7SE offers a selection of high-quality acoustic piano sounds suitable for various musical styles, including separate sub-categories for upright and mono pianos.
Vintage EPs, Twin Effects, and Amp Simulation
The MP7SE also features a selection of vintage electric piano sounds, each with its own distinctive characteristics. Enjoy their natural sound, or pass the signal through a wide variety of classic effects stompboxes, before plugging into one of the five classic amp and speaker cabinets—complete with realistic microphone character and position modelling.
Classic Tonewheel Organs with Drawbar Control and Authentic Percussion
The MP7SE's tonewheel organ simulation transforms the stage piano into a vintage electromechanical organ, complete with nine real-time adjustable drawbars and authentic percussion controls. Organ enthusiasts can dial in favorite drawbar registrations, adjust the 'condition' of the organ tone, and select their preferred rotary speaker character, then store the sound to memory for immediate recall. With organ mode selected, the MP7SE adjusts the strike point for the keyboard, allowing runs and licks to be played on its fully weighted action as easily as the real thing.
High-Quality Strings, Pads, Brasses, Basses, and More
The MP7SE features a broad range of high-quality strings, pads, synths, brass and woodwind voices, basses, guitars, and a whole host of other useful sounds. They are ideal for building layers, adding texture to other instruments, or for playing individually, at the front of the mix. And if the stock sound isn't quite perfect, feel free to customize and tweak using the MP7SE's flexible ADSR parameters and resonance/cut-off controls—all immediately accessible directly from the panel.
Four-Zone Master Keyboard Controller
The MP7SE maintains the MP series' classic four-zone approach, with each zone able to play internal sounds, external MIDI devices, or both types simultaneously. Zones can be played individually, or freely split, layered, and velocity switched to create personalized performances. The MP7SE's powerful customization allows parameters and settings for each zone to be adjusted and controlled independently, making for a versatile all-in-one performance instrument.
Intuitive Operation, Large LCD, Real-Time Assignable Control Knobs
The MP7SE's control panel is clearly arranged and easy to use, with related functions grouped together and placed where you'd expect to find them. A large LCD display and four assignable control knobs, allow several parameters to be adjusted directly in real time, without getting lost in menus—concentrate on playing, rather than trying to remember which button does what.
256 Setup Memories
The MP7SE allows every single customized sound, knob position, fader level, and adjustable parameter to be stored in memory as a setup and recalled at the touch of a button. With over 250 setup memories, the MP7SE is ideal for busy stage musicians who like to plan several shows ahead, before going out on the road.
USB to Device Functionality with MP3/WAVE/SMF File Recording Playback
The MP7SE is equipped with USB connectors that allow the instrument to be connected to a computer for MIDI use, but also to load and save data to USB memory devices directly. This USB to device feature allows customized sounds, setup memories, and recorder songs stored in internal memory to be saved to USB for posterity. USB memory devices can also be used to play back MP3, WAV audio, or SMF MIDI files, allowing performing musicians to play along with professional backing tracks, or simply learn the chords or melody for a new piece. It is also possible to save performances directly as MP3, WAV, or SMF files for emailing to band members, casual listening away from the keyboard, or further editing using an audio workstation.
