What i would love to see is a users top ten favourites of all these custom settings. Is there any way this can be achieved in a 'poll' like fashion?

That's a nice thought Bibster, but I have no clue how to implement that in this thread. Of course, many Kawai CA93/CA63 owners have already given their feedback, sometimes accompanied by a personal top ten. Anyhow, for now, I would advice you to work backwards, starting with checking out the latest (and greatest?) dual voice presets...

Partly OT: are you interested in a Kontakt 4 optimised 17GB 48kHz/24-bit KAWAI EX sample library with three simultaneous mike positions for mixing?

Finally, here's the last part of the trilogy.

Don't let the light touch setting fool you: this is a deep and emotional sound with great control (and the Room 1 reverb functions as a cabinet IR)! Just try the Schindler's List theme or something like that...

Dual Voice: Mellow Grand, volume 7 + Rock Piano, volume 3

1 Basic Settings
1 - 3 Tone control: low +6, mid +6, high -6

2 Virtual Technician
2 - 1 Voicing: mellow 2
2 - 2 Damper resonance: 9
2 - 3 String resonance: 10
2 - 4 Key off effect: 9
2 - 5 Touch: Light
2 - 8 Stretch tuning: Normal

3 Key Settings
3 - 4 Layer dynamics: 7

Reverb: Room 1

Effect: Delay 2, time 1, depth 2

Just a little TEASER this time, showing some VSTi & Standalone work in progress:

[Linked Image]

By the way, who could supply me with high quality MP10/CS9 noise samples? (e.g. high-grade balanced XLR out recordings of pedal down/up and hammer strike/fallback)

TADutchman : I don't get it, what is the purpose of this VST exactly ? btw, thanks to you and the others for sharing your presets, I just received a Kawai CA 93, and will try thses (but there are so many !).
OT : I wanted to check if the firmware was up to date, and it is v1.08. But on Kawai's website, the latest downloadable firmware seems to be v1.07...Am I missing something ?

Hello Pierre,

The v1.08 software adds the 'Playing a note very softly no longer produces a sound' improvement (similar to the MP10), however this update was not made publicly available.

The latest software version for the CA93/CA63 is actually v1.09, and should be made available later this month.

Congratulations on your new CA93 by the way! wink

Cheers,
James

Kawai James : thanks for the information, and it's indeed a nice piano, but a pain to carry it up to the 4th floor, the package said it's 115 kg (well, still lighter than an acoustic)!. I guess the updates included in the 1.09 firmware are confidential ?

Hello Pierre,

The fixes in the v1.09 are mostly related to the Temperament/User Temperament function. There is also a fix for MIDI under certain circumstances.

Nothing really spectacular, I'm afraid, however the 'silent key on' fix should please a number of owners.

Kind regards,
James

Let me start with congratulating you on your CA93 purchase with silent keypress! thumb

The purpose of the Standalone version is to add Realtime Acoustic Noise to your CA93/CA63's playing/recording in case you have a Midi and low-latency ASIO PC connection available (I have a convenient wireless set-up using M-Audio MidAir and AudioEngine W1 + Asio4All).

You could also record a song with your CA93's internal sequencer and save to USB in both Wave & Midi format. Then you can add subtle noises afterwards using the Realtime Acoustic Noise VSTi in a DAW for mixing and mastering (Reaper 4 being my weapon of choice). This way you don't need any connection between your CA93 and a PC.

Of course I want to improve upon the implementation of pedal and hammer noise and include other features so that MP10/CS9 owners and other Kawai DP owners also become interested in this tool...

After the above has been accomplished, I may be persuaded to turn Realtime Acoustic Noise into a universal tool to be used with any hardware or software instrument (probably adding load WAV functionality).

Hello. I just bought a CA-63 a couple of weeks ago, and i'm happy to find here some in-depht Q&A. I experienced a cruel dissapointment regarding the tone quality of my CA 63. I am going to try the different dual-voicing patches kindly published by TADutchman. My first (and not last question) is: do i need to enter the patches settings one by one (since i dont find the CA 63 interface user-friendly smile )or is there a workaround i didnt see (a PC based patch interface ?). Congratulations also for your VST effect of acoustic noise, it seems to be a great tool! There a many of these tools around to improve guitar sounds but i didnt see any for piano.

Congratulations on your CA63 purchase, Lblues.
Before going into detail: have you already played your CA63 with a pair of high-end headphones? In this thread you can find an example of CyberGene who clearly loves to play his CA63 with Sennheiser HD595 headphones, as opposed to using the built-in speaker system...

By the way, I clearly prefer to play my CA93 live, i.e. with active soundboard and 6-speaker system at acoustic grand volume, getting a satisfying immersive experience. I often even forget to switch on my CA93, being surprised there is no sound when I start to play. smile

TADutchman,
Does the CA93 have a parameter to adjust hammer noise?

Reason i'm asking, i see a "Hammer" control under the Noise section in your plugin, however i can't find a parameter for hammer noise on the MP10... Now, if the CA93/CA63 has one, it would be interesting to see if Kawai could add it to the MP10 in an future software upgrade...

No it doesn't, except that smart dual piano voice layering can indirectly also yield some more percussive piano timbres, but I am indeed working on a creative way to integrate both Hammer Strike and Hammer Fallback into Realtime Acoustic Noise...
