Good stuff. wink

I'm hoping we can also host some user-recorded demos on the MP website too.
I'm really looking forward to hearing the music folks produce with these new boards.

Cheers,
James

The updated MP7 owner's manual (corresponding to OS v1.02) is now available from the Kawai Japan support pages:

Dose the " Hold Effects Whilst changing Sounds" facility appear in the up-dated manual? If so what page is it on.

Cheers.

No, I didn't update any explanations related to that.

I recall us discussing this previously, but wasn't aware it was something that needed to be updated in the owner's manual. This can always change in the future, however.

Thanks James and Puff for the answers! Good to hear there's so much improved, though my MP5 already is a great instrument! My brother will love the MP5 when I'm getting the MP7 very soon.

There was me thinking that all changes or additions to the paper manual would be added to the PDF manual.

I don't remember discussing this previously with you.

Maybe you were thinking of the missing Briteness parameter? smirk

It's the other way around. I make the owner's manual edits in the layout software (InDesign), save to PDF, then send the PDF data to our agency for printing.

Sorry for the slow reply.

The MP7's Line Out jacks are unbalanced, so when using a TRS cable the 'Ring' part will have no effect. The cable may work, however we do not recommend using them because the floating input on the 'Ring' will likely cause a hum noise.

Therefore we recommend using standard TS (unbalanced) cables for connecting the MP7.

James

Are there any Kawai DPs with balanced line out jacks? How about the MP11?

Miguel, yes, the MP11 features balanced XLR jacks in addition to the unbalanced 1/4" connectors.

James, thanks for your quick reply. Is the MP11 the only Kawai DP with balanced XLR jacks? How about the CA95?

Miguel, the CA95 does not feature XLR jacks, I'm afraid.

Aside from the MP11 (and previous MP10, MP8II, MP8), the only other Kawai DPs the feature XLR jacks are the CP209/CP179 'Concert Performer' models sold in the US.

Kind regards,
James

That's a great website, beautifully designed.

James, any idea what Kawai digital piano Matt Bellamy from Muse is rocking these days?

It's a nice looking website, but, unfortunately, it says, "Coming Soon".

I was ready to buy the Roland RD-800, and they stopped shipping
due to the power plug fiasco. Now I am hearing good things about the
MP7. It sounds good in the videos, but it is not available in the stores yet in the New England area.

I've always wanted to buy a $40,000 car for $20,000, but I never have
been able to accomplish this. The MP7 sells for about $700 less than
the RD-800. What am I missing?

The MP11 seems to be more stage piano, and the MP7 appears to be more
of a stage piano/synthesizer. I can afford the MP11, but I like the additional
features of the MP7.

It's available at www.thomann.com, my mp 7 was shipped today:)
For me the mp7 has what I need, good piano, good organ , synth and strings. I like that you can layer 4 sounds.
And it's a good size and price.
Of course it would be nice with the mp11 action and xlr outs but I think I can live without it.

Yes.

You know, I don't want to be unfriendly, but the simplest of searches or a quick and easy visit to the Kawai site would yield this information.

Miguel, this is not aimed solely at you or to embarrass you. Time after time people ask questions repeatedly, some folks at very great length, when much of the information they seek is readily available with a little effort. I guess it's easier to post a question. smile
