Kawai CA701EP Ebony Polished
Welcome to one of the new top models of the KAWAI Concert Artist digital piano series.
Let yourself be won over by its sound, the great design and the many possibilities.
GRAND FEEL III KEYBOARD WITH REAL WOODEN KEYS, PRESSURE POINT SIMULATION AND EBONY&IVORY TOUCH SURFACES
The CA701 is equipped with the Grand Feel III mechanics with wooden keys, which enables an exceptionally realistic playing feel. The key length of the Grand Feel III keyboard (from the front edge of the key to the balance beam pin) is longer than that of any other digital piano keyboard. All eighty-eight black and white keys are made entirely of long pieces of wood. Like a grand piano, each key moves smoothly on a balance beam. As with the original, when a key is struck, a weighted hammer is moved upwards. In addition, the triple sensor system ensures optimal repetition and game control.
Graduated weighted hammers give real wing feel. In addition, weights are incorporated into the front area of each key of the Grand Feel III keyboard, so that an even better balance between pronounced fortissimo and non-fatiguing play with perfect control in pianissimo is possible. In addition, the Grand Feel III keyboard is equipped with a pressure point simulation, which ensures perfect control when playing pianissimo.
All 88 keys of the Grand Feel III keyboard are equipped with ivory-like coverings (Ebony & Ivory Touch), which give the player more security and excellent game control thanks to a non-slip surface.
SHIGERU KAWAI SK-EX COMPETITION GRAND AND SK-EX CONCERT GRAND CONCERT GRAND REPRODUCED WITH THE LATEST SK-EX RENDERING SOUND TECHNOLOGY
The beautiful sound of the Kawai SK-EX grand piano is at the heart of the new CA901.
You can now find it in two variants. As with the previous model as the SK-EX Concert Grand and now also as the SK-EX COMPETITION GRAND.
The new SK-EX COMPETITION GRAND sound was newly and elaborately sampled from a latest-generation SK-EX concert grand piano selected for international competitions.
With multiple microphone positions, the sound of this special grand piano was captured with all its nuances and is characterized by even more powerful tone and greater dynamics. The subsequent mix of the various microphone positions was geared towards the player position, in contrast to the SK-EX Concert Grand, which sounds more like the listener's position.
In order to be able to reproduce the impressive sound of the Shigeru grand piano as faithfully as possible, Kawai has further developed the SK-EX rendering sound generation, which is characterized by high-resolution multi-channel sampling of all 88 keys in combination with the latest resonance modeling technology. Multi-channel sampling includes the sound recorded from multiple positions on the Shigeru Kawai grand piano, which can reproduce a wider range of tonal characteristics, enabling more vivid authentic tonal changes with dynamic playing. This natural and expressive sound is further enhanced through the use of physical modeling with newly developed resonance algorithms. The complex overall sound that runs through the strings,
ALTERNATIVE ACOUSTIC PIANO SOUNDS AND A LARGE SELECTION OF ADDITIONAL SOUNDS
In addition to the new SK-EX rendering sound engine, the CA701 is also equipped with the popular Harmonic Imaging XL technology. This includes alternative acoustic piano sounds and a large selection of additional sounds. For example, you will also find the special sound of the Kawai EX concert grand piano. The sounds of the middle Shigeru Kawai grand piano SK-5 and the acoustic Kawai upright piano K-60 give the player the opportunity to get to know the different sound characteristics of different grand piano sizes or an acoustic upright piano.
In addition to the acoustic piano sounds, the CA701 has an extensive selection of other new sounds, such as e-pianos, drawbar or church organ, strings or choir sounds, which enable the musician to play a wide variety of genres in a very varied way. The dual mode allows the simultaneous playing of two different sounds (eg grand piano and strings) on top of each other on the keyboard, while the split or four-hand mode allows the keyboard to be divided into a left and a right area.
CHANGE THE SOUND CHARACTER ACCORDING TO YOUR IDEAS WITH THE VIRTUAL PIANO ARTISAN (VPA)
With the integrated Virtual Piano Artisan function in the CA701, the sound character of the selected acoustic piano, harpsichord or electric piano sound can be easily changed via the display. For example, you can adjust the intensity of the string, damper and cabinet resonances or the sound of the hammer falling back. You can even change the pitch and volume of individual tones and then save them to a favorite memory location.
The CA701 has a 5" touchscreen with a non-reflecting anti-glare surface.
All functions are so easy to operate. You can also control the CA701 using the PianoRemote app available for Android and iOS, which essentially reflects the internal system.
The Display can turn off completely when inactive, so you are even less distracted from the game.
In addition to the USB-to-host connection, the CA701 is also equipped with Bluetooth® MIDI 5.0 technology, which enables wireless communication with smart devices (e.g. smartphone or tablet). This gives you the opportunity to conveniently use a large selection of music-related apps such as the Kawai PianoRemote app or the PiaBookPlayer app in connection with your CA901 digital piano.
Or simply use the Bluetooth® audio 5.1 interface. Simply connect your smartphone to the CA901 and enjoy all your music directly through the CA901's speaker system. This is especially recommended for play-along or listening to instructional videos.
USB TO DEVICE FUNCTIONALITY WITH MP3/WAV RECORDING AND PLAYBACK
The CA701 is equipped with USB ports that not only give you the option of exchanging MIDI data with a connected computer. For example, you can also save data directly to a USB storage medium. It is also possible to directly play songs from your favorite artists in MP3 or WAV format. You can also record your own performance in MP3 or WAV format and, for example, email your friends, listen to the songs on a smartphone or PC, or burn them to CD on your PC.
DESIGN AND ERGONOMICS
The CA701 not only convinces with its many inner values. Its modern design is also an eye-catcher.
The sophisticated appearance reinterprets the classic piano design. The slim side line, the high-quality workmanship and the slowly closing key flap round off the elegant overall picture.
Attention was also paid to better ergonomics. The position of the pedals is further back, which allows for better player ergonomics.
