Let's remove the effects section and retrieve headphones compatibility as a bonus. Volume setting 4.2 works best for me, either playing live or with my HD595s. smile cool
Do note that your specific custom touch setting also determines overall brilliance!

Let's do another OT instrument joke. grin

What's the difference between a bass trombone and a chainsaw?
1. Vibrato, though you can minimize this difference by holding the chain saw very still.
2. It's easier to improvise on a chainsaw.

Light & clear tonal character, especially for some CA63-owners who find their speakers' bass response a TAD too heavy:

Don't worry, I really love that classy spacious natural spruce soundboard response which balances nicely with the speaker system. smile It's just that the tonal character of the abovementioned patch is radically different from the Kawai sound most people have grown accustomed to...

The vast array of colours of repeated chords sound even more complex this way and the soft pedal really hits the sweetspot now (given that you've got the custom touch & brilliance right):

Deceptively simple but powerful hint to achieve the right amount of brilliance: adjust the high EQ Tone control and/or Damper resonance to match the brightness of your preferred custom touch.

Congrats Dutch! Enjoy your time with your little girl since it goes sooooo fast!

James can answer your question macbug. My MP-10 does not do multiple piano layers at the same time.

I believe the principle would be the same, and the MP6 has the potential for greater control over either layered sound (up to four sounds). However, it should be noted that the CA93/CA63 and MP6 use different sample sets, so applying the combinations and settings as explained in this thread may not produce the same results.

Cheers,
James

Thanks a lot for all the best wishes (also PM) smile

While still lacking sleep, let's return to the core business of this thread: here's the start of a Trilogy involving a Rock piano for adding some slight imperfections / evolving non-linearities to the overall Grand piano sound. I prefer the closed lid setting (at volume 4.2 with optimised custom touch setting and simultanuously brilliance).


TRILOGY PART 1 - JAZZ R1.0

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

1 Basic Settings
1 - 3 Tone control: low +6, mid +6, high +5

2 Virtual Technician
2 - 1 Voicing: mellow 2 (closed lid) / mellow 1 (half open lid) / normal (open lid)
2 - 2 Damper resonance: 7
2 - 3 String resonance: 10
2 - 4 Key off effect: 8
2 - 5 Touch: Custom
2 - 8 Stretch tuning: Normal

3 Key Settings
3 - 4 Layer dynamics: 7

Reverb: Room 2

Effect: Delay 3, time 1, depth 1

OT: do you want playback quality in the same ballpark as SACD/DVD-Audio from your current CD-player?

Check out JVC's amazing K2HD CD mastering technology if you haven't already done so! cool
I do hope that prices go down a little as more and more K2HD CD titles are becoming available...

$37 to $49 per disc... Ouch!

Hopefully those costs would come down a bit. I don't see myself playing each disc as much as I played Battlefield Bad Company 2...

grin Yes, that's like 25 Euro or more... (who has seen lower prices, anyone?)

For real mainstream use, I guess K2HD and DXD CD prices need to consistently drop below 20 Euro and the number of available (new) titles has to increase dramatically.

The good news is that the huge CD player user base is already there (which was/is not the case for e.g. dedicated SACD players) and no sensible person would even dare to compare the sound of a compressed MP3 to the master tape like K2HD red book format (except for when using a mediocre audio-system and/or being partially hearing impaired).
