At the heart of the VPC1 is Kawai’s latest ‘RM3 Grand II’ wooden-key keyboard action. With all new and improved keyboard mechanisms. The VPC1 combines realistic materials and keyboard motions and acoustic mechanisms to recreate the exceptional touch and experience of the finest concert grand pianos. The RM3 II keyboard action offers playing experience much like an acoustic grand piano. The wooden keys’ bass note counterweights and graded hammer mechanisms provide a smoother action similar to an acoustic piano. While the triple-sensor key detection produces a range of responsive sounds receptive to subtle nuances in the way that you play. All 88 keys are carefully crafted from long pieces of specially selected woods. With finely textured ivorite key surfaces applied to absorb moisture against the keys. Inevitably, giving you a firmer grip on the keys. Ultimately, giving you absolute performance control.
The VPC1’s 88 keys are equipped with a professional ‘Touch Curves function’, for an authentic and natural sound. The five touch curve presets allow users to access some of Kawai’s most renowned grand concert sounds, and reproduce them with equal amounts of accuracy and quality. The touch curves have been designed to produce the most precise sound of each piano. With the ability to adjust the sound, the VPC editor allows you to modify the individual key velocities, pedal resistance, create your own touch curves and more. The VPC1 can be as complex or simple you choose.
