KAWAI The Variety of a Digital Piano: Convenience & Flexibility
Complementing the instrument’s rewarding Grand Feel keyboard action and stunning Harmonic Imaging XL grand piano sound, the CP1 offers an excellent selection of digital features that further enhance one’s musical enjoyment. In addition to stunning acoustic piano sounds, the CP1 also includes over 1000 outstanding instrumental and vocal sounds, and hundreds of professionally arranged backing accompaniment styles to suit any genre of music.

The powerful recorder function allows up to 16 tracks to be recorded and mixed from the intuitive touch panel interface, and effortlessly saved as WAV or MP3 audio files, while the integrated classical etudes and Alfred course books ensure that regular practice is both productive and engaging for aspiring pianists.
KAWAI Rich sound selection
Hundreds of studio quality instrumental and vocal sounds, plus dozens of sound effects, offer the player a vast selection of sound choices from virtually every instrument family in the world.

In addition to exquisite acoustic pianos, players will discover amazing electric pianos, authentic pipe and drawbar organs, lush strings, thrilling woodwinds and brass, contemporary guitars and basses, drums and percussion and much more.

With powerful 256 note polyphony, up to four sounds can be combined together or assigned to individual sections of the keyboard, allowing advanced, multi-voice performances at the touch of a button.

KAWAI Alfred Inside!
The CP1 comes with the first year’s lesson songs from Alfred Publishing’s Basic Piano Course 1, Premier Course 1 and Adult Course 1 built in. We’ve also included the printed music and recordings for time-tested finger exercises such as scales, arpeggios and Hanon songs.

Kawai digital pianos are the only instruments with Alfred lesson songs built into them*. With the built-in lesson songs, a student can listen to the instructional song being played by an Alfred staff pianist. The student can follow along with the lesson book** to learn how the piece is supposed to sound. The student can slow the song down and play along, even muting the recorded left-hand or right-hand parts to practice hands separately (a common practice technique). The student can also record his or her performance and then compare it to the built-in performance.

** Alfred books are sold separately.

KAWAI Flexible USB connectivity
The CP1 is equipped with modern USB connectors that not only allow the instrument to be connected to a computer for MIDI use, but also to load and save data to USB memory devices directly.

This latter USB to Device functionality allows favorite instrument settings, registrations, and memorable recorder songs stored within internal memory to be safely preserved on USB flash drives, or for standard MIDI files (SMF) downloaded from the internet to be played back and enjoyed using the instrument’s exquisite Harmonic Imaging XL sounds without additional hardware or cables.
KAWAI MP3/WAV Playback & Record
USB memory devices can also be used to play back MP3 or WAV audio files, allowing musicians to learn the chords or melody for a new piece, or to simply play along with their favorite songs.

It is even possible to record entire performances (including external line-in and microphone audio) directly as MP3 or WAV audio files for sharing with family and friends, sending to band members, or casual listening away from the piano.
KAWAI Professional connectivity options
In addition to USB to Host and USB to Device connectors, the CP1 also features standard MIDI terminals, industry standard LINE-level and balanced XLR audio jacks, in addition to external video and expression pedal connectors.

These varied connectivity options allow the instrument to be enjoyed in larger settings, such as churches and halls, while also providing greater flexibility when using computers, tablets, and other digital audio devices.
KAWAI Microphone input & harmony
The outstanding CP1 features an accessible microphone input jack with dedicated volume control knob, allowing performers to simply connect a microphone and sing along with a live player or recording with their voice amplified through the instrument’s powerful amplifier and speaker system.

In addition, the Mic Harmony feature can transform a solo voice into a duo, trio, or 4-part vocal group.  It is even possible to replace the lead vocal track in favorite recordings by using the Voice Reduce function while playing back MP3 or WAV audio files.




KAWAI Built-in lesson & finger exercises

The CP1’s convenient lesson function allows aspiring pianists to learn piano with classical Czerny, Burgmüller, Beyer, Bach, and Beethoven, etudes, or a collection of songs from the popular Alfred’s Basic, Adult, and Premier course books.

With a strong emphasis on acoustic piano realism, the CP1 also features traditional finger exercises, scales, and warm-up drills, and includes companion books for all classical scores to further aid one’s piano development.

    * Included score books dependent on market location.

    * Alfred lesson books sold separately.
KAWAI iPad connectivity & apps
Connecting the CP1 to an iPad using a USB cable or wirelessly allows players to extend the instrument’s functionality with a wide range of education, performance, and scoring apps.

A dedicated Virtual Technician app is also freely available, providing an enjoyable way to learn about and adjust the Concert Performer’s various characteristics from an attractive touch interface.

    

* Quicco Sound mi.1 Bluetooth MIDI device required for wireless connectivity.

KAWAI Grand Feel Pedal System
Reinforcing the Concert Performers’ reputation as some of the most realistic digital pianos available is Kawai’s Grand Feel Pedal System. This unique feature replicates the individual weighting of the damper, soft, and sostenuto pedals of the EX concert grand pianos to further enhance the CP1’s acoustic-like authenticity.

Moreover, it is also possible to adjust the half-pedal sensitivity of the damper pedal, and effectiveness of the soft pedal using specially engineered Virtual Technician parameters, allowing pianists to personalize the instrument’s response to match their individual pedaling technique.
KAWAI Professional accompaniment styles

With hundreds of professionally arranged and recorded accompaniment styles immediately available to become a personal backup band or orchestra, players will discover styles from virtually every genre of popular music – from Swing to Big Band to Rock, Pop, Show Tunes, Oldies, Latin, Jazz, and Orchestral styles.

Furthermore, the intuitive Style Conductor allows players to rearrange musical parts to create their own custom version of any style. From complete novices to seasoned players, the Concert Performer’s comprehensive Styles function has the capability of transforming musical performances, helping both existing repertoires and new songs to sound complete and professional.

KAWAI Easy or Advanced recording
The CP1’s flexible recorder function offers two methods of capturing performances.  Easy Recorder mode allows musicians to capture their playing or sudden inspiration at any moment simply by pressing the Record button on the instrument’s intuitive control panel.

For more complicated performances, the Advanced Recorder provides a full-featured 16-track MIDI recorder that includes many of the same professional features found on dedicated MIDI sequencing devices, such as punch-in and punch-out, individual note editing, and full volume/panning/effect adjustments.
KAWAI Digital Audio
USB memory devices can be used to record and play digital audio files in MP3 and WAV formats. You can record multi-sound keyboard performances, internal recordings, incoming audio (through the line inputs) and vocal performances (via the microphone input)* or listen to your favorite artist’s latest recording and play along
KAWAI Personalized piano adjustments
A skilled piano technician can personalize an acoustic piano’s sound and touch response. Kawai’s exclusive Virtual Technician does the same for the CP1 digital piano.

The knowledge and skill of an experienced piano technician is essential to bring out the best of a fine acoustic piano. In addition to tuning each note, the technician also performs numerous regulation and voicing adjustments that allow the instrument to truly sing.

The CP1’s powerful Virtual Technician function simulates these refinements digitally, allowing discerning musicians to shape aspects of the selected piano’s character to suit their personal preferences.

Perform touch weight and voicing adjustments, regulate hammer and key release noises, and fine-tune string, damper, and cabinet resonances.  It is even possible to adjust the precise tuning, volume, and character of individual notes – all in real-time.

Kawai CP1 Uses
The Grand Feel (GF) Wooden-Key Action
Kawai’s Grand Feel (GF) Action is the latest in Kawai’s long line of wooden key actions. The action offers graded hammers, key counterweights, Ivory-touch key surfaces (white keys), Let-off and triple sensor key detection. The CP1 offers the longest key length of any Kawai digital piano.

As one of the world’s premier builders of acoustic pianos, Kawai has long understood the importance of an instrument’s touch, or “feel”, to the player. Without a keyboard action that responds perfectly to an artist’s commands, a piano would not accurately create the sound that the artist is seeking.
