This point was discussed earlier on in the thread. I believe the general consensus was that the non-graded action on the CP1/CP5 was not a problem for most players. However it's perhaps worth nothing that the CP50 uses the GH action, which one would assume is graded (GH = Graded Hammer).

I believe the actions in Nord's stage pianos are not graded.

I believe Kurzweil are the same.

I suspect when the CP-series technology winds up in CLP (home use)instruments, the action will be graded.

Yes, I believe a number of other folks have made similar predictions.

The bottom line will be if these ungraded action stage pianos are successful, Roland and perhaps others, will be soon be making their own versions.

I wish they'd (Roland) bring back the SK-6 Rotary-Oil Damped action...that was ungraded and a beauty too. Those old RD pianos were great feeling instruments.

I was on the hunt for CLAVIA Nord Piano. It's a Swedish company so I called them (I'm Swedish) and they said it would not be launched until april + -. So I went to my regular shop and a box with a CP1 was incoming. They asked me if I wanted to try it. I bought it after about 1 minute of testing. I did not have a clue about CP5 or the price levels when I was driving home. I still don't. (and now it is to late to turn back :-)
-------------------
My recording chain on the CP300 was (I am selling it) balanced out in to Yamaha MR816CSX connected to Cubase 5 64 bit, on a Win 7 DAW.
After normalization (minus 2-3 DB) I sometimes use Ozone from Izotope and their "cd master" preset.

There is no additional effects than the CP300 it self.
--------------------
It's my recordings. I do that as a meditation to survive my work as a marketing director in the marine business. I would quit and play piano full time if I could afford it. Sweden don't have any market for Solo Piano and my daughter is 13 and very demanding in her personal cash flow :-)

Funny how that works isn't it? A lot of money going that direction here too.

Thanks for describing your keyboard search. I've considered the Nord too, but it's too red! I've narrowed it down to the CP-300 or the CP5 - the black tank, or the Fender Rhodes look-alike.

Interesting to note a number of very positive posts about the CP1 have appeard, from people who have played it, at Keyboard Corner.

(I'll be posting there myself, when I get a chance). Nice.

Yep, actually playing an instrument somehow makes a big difference in one's experience in how it feels and sounds.

What a concept, eh? (I'm practicing my Canadian) wink

I like hearing what people say who have really played the instrument.

Well, this is bad news, at least for me. I was told today that the CP-5 won't be available until late May, or early June at the soonest. A sales person at Sweetwater gave me this information, and said he had it straight from the Yamaha rep. I was on the waiting list, but I don't think I'm going to wait that long.

Besides, he said they could easily push the date back even farther if they run into more delays. I'm disappointed. I was looking forward to checking one out, and hopefully buying it.

Perhaps they heard about dewster's test? wink

I'm sure any delays will be absolutely worth it.

Not sure that's actually true because a few CP5's are around already at Artist services and the stores cannot be far behind. It usually it takes a few weeks for them to show up in stores after artist services gets their first batch.

<sigh> I can only hope that is the case Dr. Popper, I really want to try this thing out. I'm going to have to buy it with out playing it though since there isn't a store within 100 miles of me that will carry it. I'll just have to make sure there is a good return policy on it. I need to just chill out and wait for this to hit the streets and not go buy that SV-1 even if it delays things by a month or two. I'm sure about the time the CP-5 arrives in stores that Kawai will announce a brand new series of DP's with even better specs smile

Well, I'm glad I said something then, although I'm confused about where this salesman is getting his information. He was certain that there wouldn't be any available for at least three months, yet Dr Popper, you're saying that some are already in circulation.

Also, does it make sense that there would be a fully operational CP5 at NAMM, but there wouldn't be any sold until almost six months later?

Unfortunately I can confirm this. I talked to a salesperson at Thomann in Germany and he said the CP5/CP50 will be available mid/end of May earliest. That sucks. I really don’t feel like waiting that long.

Come on guys, it's only a couple of extra months - I'm sure the new models will be worth the wait.
