Yes, Kawai actually states that one of the main benefits of the HI-XL engine (Sound mode) is that it has longer sample lengths.

The other 512MB (or part of it at least) should be the "pianist mode" SK-EX. I would say its 10 rendering characters are a result of processing the same set of samples with different modelling parameters and effects. But we would need to run these DPs through the DPBSD project to confirm this :-)


Assuming the ROM sizes listed are correct, that breakdown makes sense. Since you can't fully disable the resonance rendering in Pianist mode, it's hard to compare directly to Sound mode, but they do sound really quite similar (I think can be from the same sampling session on the same instrument). One thing I haven't tested is if and how Pianist mode loops.

Ah yes, this mini debate has segued a little bit but in the context of my 21st 3pm post I did specify those as I was thinking about the more 'digital piano' market rather than stage pianos & the more complex slabs where korg and nord have their presence.
