Kawai MP6 Stage Piano (B-Stock) B3
Evolution, not revolution
That's the concept behind the new MP6. We took its predecessor's great interface and compact form factor, updated the keyboard action and sound technology, then added a host of modern new features to sweeten the deal. The result is a exible stage piano that's ideal for gigging, with solid, reliable keys and an impressive selection of sounds. Sounds
The MP6 features brand new acoustic and electric pianos that underscore a host of tonal improvements throughout the entire soundset. In addition to various PCM organ patches, the MP6 now includes a tonewheel organ simulator, allowing you to dial-in your favourite drawbar positions, then switch on the new amp and rotary speaker effects for that authentic vintage organ growl.
Whether you're in the studio or out on the road, the MP6 is more than capable of meeting the master piano needs of a professional stage performer. Split the entire keyboard into four independent zones, then assign each one to play internal sounds, trigger external MIDI devices, or control both simultaneously. Adjust the levels for all four zones using real-time faders, then once you've found the perfect mix for each song, store the entire panel setup to one of the 256 internal memories (or a USB key) and you're ready for the gig.
So often stage controllers with superb sounds and such a great panel interface, are let down by a flimsy keyboard action supplied by a third-party vendor. Not the MP6. Its brand new Responsive Hammer action with Let-off mechanism delivers a stunningly realistic piano playing experience, but it's also built to last. Structural reinforcements make RH the strongest, most rigid plastic action Kawai has ever developed, ensuring keys don't wobble around from side to side, or creak under pressure when you're laying down the big chords. And with the same Ivory Touch surfaces found on the MP10 featured as standard, you can be confident that your fingers will remain firmly on the keys throughout even the most blistering runs.
USB / Audio
The MP6's "USB to Device" connector allows customised sounds, SETUP memories, and recorder songs stored in internal memory to be saved to USB for future gigs, or even exchanged with other MP owners online.
USB memory devices can also be used to play back MP3 or WAV audio files, and SMF song data, allowing performing musicians to play along with professional backing tracks, or learn the chords or melody for a new piece using the A-B loop feature. It is even possible to record and save performances directly as MP3/WAV audio, or SMF song files for emailing to band members, casual listening away from the keyboard, or further editing using an audio workstation.
Beside of several beats the metronome function also includes 100 Drumpattern of several stilistics.
