The performer's stage piano.
The Kawai MP7 88-key stage piano combines stunning acoustic pianos, vintage electric pianos and a classic tonewheel organ in a keyboard with impeccable feel and style. With over 250 sounds the MP7 makes playing fun and features Kawai's Harmonic Imaging XL technology for a rich detailed sound.
STUNNING ACOUSTIC PIANOS
A variety of beautiful concert, jazz, and pop grand pianos, and a full-bodied traditional upright - appropriately voiced and mic'd for a broad range of musical styles. Enjoy playing the original sounds, or delve into the powerful Virtual Technician to adjust the piano beneath your fingertips.
The class-leading Responsive Hammer II keyboard action recreates the touch of an acoustic grand, with realistic movement providing a smooth, natural playing experience. Triple-sensor key detection, ivory-like surfaces, and authentic let-off simulation ensure the MP7 performs like the real thing.
CHERISHED VINTAGE EPs
A treasure trove of authentic tine, reed, and modern electric pianos, crunchy clavs, and a striking electric grand - lovingly sampled to preserve their characteristics and imperfections. Play them clean, or plug into over 100 different effects, each with a variety of fully tweakable parameters.
ALL NEW EFFECTS ENGINE
The MP7's powerful audio processor elevates sonic realism to another level with brand new, high resolution effects. Apply richly modelled resonances to acoustic piano sounds, warm-up EPs with analogue-style amp sims, and recreate distinctive reverb environments - all at the touch of a button.
ORGANS A brand new tonewheel organ simulation, complete with 9 real-time adjustable drawbars, authentic percussion controls, and vintage chorus/vibrato settings. Tweak the organ's rotary speaker characteristics and use the MP7's mixer faders to adjust onscreen drawbar registrations.
POWERFUL 4-ZONE SYSTEM
Four independently configurable zones for controlling internal sounds, external MIDI devices, or both at the same time. Sturdy hardware level faders provide immediate control over rich multi-voice layers, while improved split functionality allows any zone to be effortlessly split, or assigned to a custom key range.
INSPIRING SUBSIDIARY SOUNDS
Studio quality strings, pads, basses, and other essential sounds suitable for creating splits, layering with acoustic pianos and EPs, or for simply playing solo. Tweak each voice using comprehensive ADSR parameters, or fatten the overall sound with flexible parametric EQ.
ACCESSIBLE & INTUITIVE PANEL
A large graphic LCD display, four assignable real-time control knobs, and a well organised, immediately usable panel interface. Leave the manual at home and concentrate on playing, rather than trying to remember which button does what.
GENEROUS SETUP MEMORIES
Store and recall every customised sound, knob position, fader level, and adjustable parameter at the touch of a button. With over 250 setup memories, the MP7 is ideal for busy stage musicians who like to plan several shows ahead, before going out on the road.
QUALITY DESIGN, MATERIALS, & BUILD
Elegantly finished wooden side panels, sleek gloss-black paintwork and a raised fallboard displaying the Kawai family name give the MP7 a distinctly acoustic presence. Its sturdy aluminium and steel chassis, and reinforced base reassures players that this instrument is built for the stage.
