MP8II - More Info
The MP8II utilizes Kawai’s acclaimed Harmonic Imaging Sound Technology to create its impressive concert grand piano sound. In all, the MP8II has 256 instrument sounds.
The MP8II offers the finest touch available thanks to the AWA PROII wooden-key, graded-hammer action with counterbalancing.
With a best-in-class 192-note polyphony, the MP8II can handle even the most demanding performances.
The MP8II functions as a 4-zone controller keyboard. Each zone can control an internal or external zone, or both. Internal zones can be assigned to any key range, and many other parameters can be edited. Faders control a zone’s volume in real time.
With 4 real time control knobs you can adjust the keyboard’s EQ, effects and sound parameters, or send MIDI control change commands to external devices.
Reverb & Effects
The MP8II comes with a host of studio quality reverbs and digital effects, from chorus and flanger to distortion and rotary speaker.
Settings and assignments for all four zones can be saved into any one of 256 User Setups for instant recall during a performance
