Good afternoon folks,

Kawai Japan has issued software updates for the MP11SE and MP7SE stage pianos.

This recommended v1.02 update improves SETUP changing smoothness with certain EFX combinations, simplifies naming when saving SETUPs, and adds support for sending progressive values using the left and centre pedals of the Kawai GFP-3 triple pedal unit.

The full MP11SE and MP7SE changelogs are listed below.
