"marketing speak" description.



Not only in Kawai's brochure but generally I see lots of adjectives like unique, stunning, incredible, inovative, etc, ad nauseum. Some but not really much wow breakthrough technology lately.

Finally something like Roland RD-64! Unfortunately it has keyboard starting on A on the bottom (I'd rather have at let low E), but there is octave switch button. Great keyboard + SN pianos + SN e.pianos! That's awesome, many people needed something like this, I suspect I'll see it on many stages, especially talking about gigs. Portability is very important for modern musician. With 12.8 kg you can even go by a metro with this smile I hope for price below 2000$.

All specs etc. are here http://www.rolandus.com/products/details/1266/471/specs/

If there is nothing different between the newest inbound shipment and the ones in the warehouse I'll just have them ship one from warehouse.

Scuttlebutt on this forum has suggested a much lower street price. If that's accurate, I'll probably get one as a "travel piano."

I consider many Japanese products rather sleek and good-looking, although there was a time when almost all of their cars didn't have a single sharp edge, everything was smooth and round... That was weird. smile Now I think it's mainly French car manufacturers who have lost their touch. But it's getting better... slowly.

But back on topic - that Casio keyboard does look a little strange, blocky maybe and kinda retro if you will. I'm not into such sort of thing but I'm sure there are people out there who are.

Which translates to about $899 if you make a little effort. That's friggin cheap. Personally, I think a vey smart move by Roland.

At this weight, at this price, for the travelling musicians, I'd hope Roland had added a pair of (cheap) on-board speakers. That really comes in handy to make it complete. Again, it doesn't need great speakers, but does need some speakers as an alternative to headphones in the hotel or a friend's house.

Kawai use this technology in the CA-65/95 as well, something about "eXtra Long" samples if I remember correctly. See the CA-65/95 brochure for the usual "marketing speak" description.

Thanks! From it:

"With the latest Harmonic Imaging XL sound technology, remarkable 256 note polyphony and brand new reverberation and resonance modeling effects, the new Concert Artist instruments deliver unparalleled acoustic realism that is guaranteed to enthral performers and audience members alike."

And:

"With expanded piano sound memory, the new Concert Artist boasts the largest sample size of any Kawai digital piano. This ‘eXtra Long’ standard of Harmonic Imaging technology extends the important attack portion of the piano sound by up to 120%, articulating the natural detail and resonance characteristics of each note more clearly, and improving the instrument’s organic tonal quality overall."

A shame it's still looped. Looking forward to testing this HI-XL though.


I was thinking XL was some kind of parental film / game warning like "Extreme Language" because they got, say, Samuel L. Jackson's vocals integrated into the built-in tutorial software:

"#@&$%! B flat! @#$#!"

At the same price, the Casio PX-5S looks a lot more interesting to me.

And a $1 one line LCD. Kind of weird to have SN pianos with this clunky, low information interface.

Good point. But you do have SN sound at 999$. They can't make it too good smile

While I was checking out the Kurzweil booth, I saw the Studiologic booth next to them. They had a new DP called Numa Concert. I didn't have time to really try it, but it sounded good to my ears. It still has the Fatar action however.

Here is an article I found about it.

A gigabyte of samples for the piano. Not bad for a DP.

Nord has a new upright sample that will be released based on Yamaha's U3. Start the video at 1:10 to hear about the piano section. He plays just a few seconds worth but it sounds good!

I like the PX line and have the 350. To me, a 64-key board is a real advantage for traveling, though.
