I love the NV5.

My only remaining issue is, there's absolutely zero echo, fading effect, or resonance after releasing a single key, unless you're pressing the sus pedal.

Frankly makes it astounding to think that's the factory settings... As soon as you press it, the sound is beautiful, but the way it just simply disappears as you release it makes the experience feel a bit fake.

Any tips? Seems like the kind of setting that should be easy to tune, yet I can't seem to find it.

By "fading effect" you do mean reverberation (reverb)? Maybe yours is with it disabled or set to minimum. Take a look at the reverb section on your User Manual and see if it solves your issue.

Yes, please provide more information about the piano sound that you're using, and the various settings (Virtual Technician, Reverb etc.)

Kind regards,

Hey Usheraname,
There are two things I can think of:
Reverb: you can increase echo.
Undamped string resonance: last 1,5 octave don't have dumpers so it's freely resonating all the time, you can increase this effect in Virtual technician.

The Novus 5 has two sound modes, the "legacy" one (Harmonic Imaging XL) and Kawai's still rather new "SK-EX Rendering". They vary a bit in terms of the resonances that are implemented:

 - Damper Resonance
 - String Resonance
 - Undamped String Resonance
 - Cabinet Resonance

Possibly the Cabinet Resonance would provide the effect one expects from an upright piano cabinet.

But the SK-EX Rendering mode actually produces the sound of a grand piano recorded with the lid open or removed.

Then there are Virtual Technician parameters like:
- Decay Time
- Release Time

(Which may or may not be available for a specific instrument sound or rendering mode.)

Decay time might the the sustain time of a held note and release time the "dying out" part of the note(?)

(Just thinking out loud. I don't have an NV5.)

OT(ish) comment, on my ES8 I do not perceive a difference when I vary the Decay time. I wonder how significant is the variation of this parameter over the sound.
