THE MOST AUTHENTIC KEYBOARD
The keyboard is one of the most important components of any piano. It’s where the player literally connects with an instrument to express their feelings, and where the magic really happens. Ask any stage performer, be they a concert pianist, a touring artist, or a weekend warrior – if the keys don’t feel right, it’s impossible to enjoy the music and put on a great show. This is why Kawai has selected the flagship keyboard action for the MP11. Not a vague, cut-down ‘almost but not quite’ version, but exactly the sameGrand Feel action found in our award winning Concert Artist instruments. This means long, 100% real wooden keys that respond like an acoustic, and deliver the most authentic playing experience available in a stage piano.
THE MOST REALISTIC SOUNDThe MP11’s Grand Feel keyboard delivers the most authentic playing experience available in a stage piano. However, an incredible action counts for almost nothing if the sound quality doesn’t measure up. Fortunately, superb sound is another area where the MP11 truly shines, with a handpicked selection of premium voices to cover every stage pianist’s needs. Stunning acoustic pianos, cherished vintage EPs, and inspiring subsidiary voices – the three essential sound categories, organised as independent sections. The MP11 features more sample memory than any previous Kawai instrument, with a brand new digital signal processor providing the most realistic reverbs, resonances, and effects heard in a stage board.
THE MOST ARTICULATE CONTROLThe finest ultra-realistic sound, played by the most authentic keyboard action. These core qualities define the MP11, but a great stage piano is required to do more. Much more. Whether it’s composing in the bedroom, laying down tracks in the studio, or performing live on stage, there are often times when 88-keys alone are simply not enough. Thankfully, articulate control has been a trademark of Kawai MPs for years, and this latest model is no exception. Multiple pedal inputs, knobs, buttons, wheels, and faders support primary keyboard input, with custom key ranges, assignable parameters, and independent 4-zone MIDI transforming the MP11 from a stage piano into a fully-fledged master keyboard.
