KAWAI RELEASES STAGE PIANOS
Newest in the Legendary MP Series

Rancho Dominguez, CA • December, 2010 – Kawai America announces the release of the latest in its award-winning MP Series Professional Stage Pianos. The new MP10 and MP6 replace the popular MP5 and MP8II models. Both instruments feature new sound technology, new sounds, new actions and many extra features.

The MP6 follows in its predecessor’s footsteps as an 88-note stage piano and 4-zone controller. It features new concert grand piano sounds created using Kawai’s proprietary Progressive Harmonic Imaging with 88-key piano sampling. The MP6 also has new tine, reed, and clavi type vintage Electric Piano sounds. An amp simulator function adds to the realism of these EP sounds while a tone wheel organ simulator allows players to dial in their favorite organ sounds.

For touch, the MP6 utilizes the new RH (Realistic Hammer) action with Let-off and Ivory-touch key surfaces. The instrument has a total of 256 instrument sounds. Settings for each of the MP6’s 4 internal/external zones can be saved to any of 256 User setup memories.

The MP10 is a revolutionary new take on Kawai’s flagship stage piano. Utilizing the new Ultra Progressive Harmonic Imaging with 88-key piano sampling, this instrument offers the finest concert grand piano sounds available in a stage instrument. There are actually three types of piano sounds – traditional, jazz, and pop. The MP10 also boasts a section of new vintage EP sounds with several types of amp simulations available for further realism. The instrument also offers a third section of additional sounds useful for layering with the acoustic and electric piano sounds, as well as a section for external MIDI control.

For touch, the MP10 uses the very latest in Kawai’s line of award-winning wooden-key actions – the RM3 Grand action. Noted by many to be the finest action available in a digital stage piano, the RM3 features extra long wooden keys that are balanced on a pivot point. Let-off and Ivory-touch key surfaces are additional features of the RM3 Grand action.

There are a total of 27 ultra-quality instrument sounds on the MP10 and users can store their settings for each section in any of the 156 User Setup memories. Both MP instruments have USB to Host and USB to Device capabilities. Additionally, both instruments can play and record digital audio to USB – both MP3 and .WAV formats.
