Heya

1) Could anyone tell me when the MP11 is likely to be released?

2) Also would anyone be able to tell me the differences between the MP10 and the ES7 as I've played the Es7 and is beautiful, but I really like to be able to compose music in different styles with different instruments etc. and the ES7 is somewhat limited in the number it offers - does the MP10 offer more or should I be looking more at something like the Korg Jupiter 80?

Hope you can help,

Thank you smile

1) No one knows, at least no one who is able to talk about it.

2) MP10 is basically a piano-only board, so it has fewer sounds than the ES7.


Playing since April 2010.

If you want more sounds in a stage piano you could look at the Roland RD series or Yamaha S90XS/MOX8/CP5/CP50. If you are looking for something more programmable, maybe Motif or Kronos. The Jupiter 80 doesn't have weighted keys, but it sure is programmable. Software synths is an option too.

Look at MP6 if you want more sounds. Feels a lot like the ES7, but has 256 sounds

I don't think that link is all correct. Those seem like the stats for the MP10. I would think a replacement model would use at least RM3II action and harmonic imaging XL.

It appears to be a placeholder page for a new product. The same francepianos.com web site has another, nearly identical page for the MP10.

Cheers,

Maybe see a teaser soon from James similar to the one he did last year at this time with the VPC1 just before NAMM 2013. ...just maybe wink

If you can find a Korg Jupiter 80 I'll buy it for you.

Well, I FINALLY have an MP11 in my hands.

It IS the best playing dig. Piano I've ever played. Seriously. Feels like a grand. I'm still listening and playing, but so far it is also the best sounding.

I just wish it weren't so danged HEAVY! Hard to call this one a true "stage" piano. I might stick with my stage 2 or RD800 or CP4 for the "real" stage...

I had an opportunity to test a Roland RD-800 and a Yamaha CP4 over the weekend. I was expecting more from the Yamaha CP4. It left me a bit underwhelmed regarding the action. The Roland, surprisingly, felt better to my hands, but I still wanted to compare to an MP11. Found a local Kawai dealer with a CA-95 (same key bed as MP 11) and when I sat down to play, I was instantly sold. I will be ordering my MP 11 today. grin

Mine should arrive Friday - the day I leave town for 10 days! mad

So glad to hear it's that good. I assume you own a Grotrian as well? How the does the action compare? And the sound? What monitors or headphones are you using? And where are the pics and sound clips?? laugh

Please share your thoughts on the MP11 after you get it. I am strongly considering
getting one and got a nice price from Sweetwater this am. Haven't heard from anyone
who has actually played one.

What did you pay? I got mine from kraftmusic.com and it was $2949 including stand, bench, expression pedal, carrying case, dust cover, and some cables I think. The base price for the DP was $2799.
