The MP11SE The Pianist's 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, 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 MP11SE's wooden 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 three sound categories: acoustic pianos, electric pianos, and subsidiary sounds that are organized as independent sections. In addition, the effect section is equipped with reverbs, resonances, and effects. Each sound section has a hardware volume fader, which simplifies the creation of layers, splits, and key ranges, while preventing effects and other settings applied to one section from accidentally influencing another.

Furthermore, premium quality strings and soothing pads are available and suited for layering, while the rich electric and acoustic bass sounds work nicely with left-hand splits. A choice selection of harpsichord and mallet voices completes the line-up, for those occasions that require that specific sound.

Finally, the MP11SE is built with a sturdy metal chassis and wooden side arms. It is designed with 1/4" and XLR outputs, 1/4" inputs, and features 4-channel MIDI master control functions. A GFP-3 triple pedal unit is also included. The MP11SE has everything you need—a realistic acoustic sound, authentic other sounds, and articulate control for music professionals who do not accept compromise.

Acoustic Pianos

Concert, jazz, and pop grand pianos, and a full-bodied traditional upright

Cherished Vintage Electric Pianos

A collection of authentic tine, reed, and modern electric pianos, crunchy clavs, and an electric grand.

Subsidiary Sounds

Studio-quality strings, pads, basses, and other essential sounds for creating splits, layering with acoustic pianos and EPs, or playing solo.

Accessible, Intuitive Panel

Large graphic LCD display, four assignable real-time control knobs, and a well-organized, usable panel interface. Leave the manual at home and concentrate on playing, rather than trying to remember which button does what.

Authentic Keyboard Action

A keyboard action for serious pianists crafted entirely from wood. Grand Feel delivers an authentic playing experience.

Powerful MIDI Control

Connect to Windows or Mac via USB, and to your favorite semi-weighted boards via standard MIDI, then control both simultaneously. The MP11SE allows up to four MIDI channels to be controlled at the same time, each with its own custom key ranges and user-definable pedal and knob CC# assignments.

Generous Setup Memories

Store and recall every customized sound, knob position, fader level, and adjustable parameter at the touch of a button. With over 200 setup memories, the MP11SE is suitable for busy stage musicians who like to plan several shows ahead, before going out on the road.

Pedals and MIDI Jacks

Connect directly to the house PA using XLR cables, and to personal monitors with the high-quality line out jacks. Enjoy realistic damper, sostenuto, and soft playing control by connecting the included Kawai GFP-3 triple pedal unit, or assign a range of alternative functions to individual pedals.

Quality Design

The finished wooden side panels, sleek gloss-black paintwork, and raised fallboard displaying the Kawai family name give the MP11SE a distinctly acoustic presence. Its sturdy aluminum and steel chassis (and reinforced base) reassures players that this instrument is built for the stage.
