- Responsive Hammer Compact keyboard action with hammer detection
- The KDP70 utilises the authentic Responsive Hammer Compact II weighted key keyboard action. hammer weighting, structural rigidity, and low-noise characteristics found on Kawai’s award-winning CN series instruments, within a more compact form factor. Unlike most instruments in its class that generate sounds based on key velocity, the KDP70’s realistic keyboard action design measures the velocity of the weighted hammers that are thrown when playing each key. This preferred method reproduces the mechanism of an acoustic grand piano more accurately, and allows performers to play with a greater range of musical expression.
- Kawai EX concert grand piano sounds reproduced with 88-key sampling
Connected to this responsive keyboard action is the rich, expressive sound of Kawai’s celebrated EX concert grand piano – widely regarded by professional pianists and piano technicians as one of the finest instruments within its class. All 88 keys of this exceptional instrument have been meticulously recorded, analysed and faithfully reproduced as high-fidelity digital waveforms. Recording each key individually in this way preserves the rich harmonic character of the EX concert grand piano, and guarantees that the sound heard when playing any one of the KDP70’s weighted keys is an accurate representation of the original acoustic source. Kawai’s advanced Harmonic Imaging sound technology ensures seamless expression when playing from gentle pianissimo to thunderous fortissimo, without sudden changes in sound, while the impressive 192 note polyphony allows complicated passages that utilise the damper pedal to be enjoyed without notes ‘dropping out’ unexpectedly.
- Convenient digital features, including built-in lesson and integrated song recorder
The KDP70 offers a variety of useful features to complement its realistic weighted-key touch and authentic grand piano sounds. The built-in lesson function includes classical Burgmüller and Czerny etudes, and popular Alfred songs, while the adjustable metronome and song recorder are also invaluable tools for aspiring pianists. An assortment of additional instrumental voices, combined with the Dual playing mode adds greater variety to players’ performances, while the special Four Hands mode divides the keyboard into two independent sections, allowing teacher and student to practise and play together using a single instrument.
