The RM3 II keyboard action provides you with a similar feel to an acoustic grand piano. The wooden keys’ bass note counterweights and graded hammer provide a smoother action that’s similar to an acoustic piano. The triple-sensor key detection produces a range of responsive sounds that are receptive to subtle nuances in the way that you play. Ivory Touch key surfaces are smooth and give your playing a natural feel, as well as absorbing fingertip perspiration to assist playing control.
The VPC1’s 88 keys have professional touch curves for a natural sound. The five touch curve presets allow users to access some of Kawai’s most renowned 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. To adjust the sound to your own requirement, the VPC editor allows you to alter the individual key velocities, pedal resistance, create your own touch curves and more. The VPC1 can be as complex or modest as each user prefers.
The core sound of the Ivory II Grand Pianos is an authentic recreation of acoustic pianos. Each sound features samples from some of the world’s finest instruments including a Bösendorfer 290 Imperial Grand, a Steinway D Concert Grand and a Yamaha C7 Grand. The piano sounds are a textured blend of up to 18 samples, carefully mixed and layered to produce the most realistic sound possible. A key development for the Ivory II Grand Pianos is the use of Synthogy’s Sympathetic String Resonance. This technology adds the complex harmonics and minute responses of acoustic pianos for the most realistic sound possible. The Ivory II Grand Pianos match the VPC1’s authentic feel, so you can directly play and record your pieces without compromise.
The extensive controls on the Ivory II software allows you to create the exact sound you have in mind. This software includes all the classic parameters such as EQ, as well as more refined features such as timbre shifting and dampening. The user-friendly layout on your computer means you can easily navigate across the features and comfortably edit them.
