Product Description
Details

acoustic piano sounds and a strong selection of additional instrument voices. In addition to the latest SK-EX Rendering piano sound engine, the CA78 digital piano also incorporates Kawai’s highly regarding Harmonic Imaging XL technology, showcasing a variety of alternative acoustic pianos sounds and a strong selection of additional instrument voices. The Kawai EX full concert grand piano has frequently been selected by professional pianists in such prestigious events as the Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Rubinstein international piano competitions, while the Shigeru Kawai SK-5 chamber grand and Kawai K-60 upright, allow performers to enjoy the contrasting tonal characteristics of various different piano sizes and voicing configurations.Supplementing these realistic acoustic piano voices, the CA78 digital piano also features an excellent selection of additional instrument sounds, ranging from electric pianos and drawbar and church organs, to strings, human choirs, and even atmospheric synth-style pads, inviting musicians to add greater variety to their performances. Furthermore, the Dual playing mode also allows two different sounds, such as grand piano and strings, to be layered together, while the Split and 4Hands playing modes divide the keyboard into two independent sections.Virtual Technician adjustments to personalise the instrument’s character The CA78 digital pianos’ Virtual Technician feature allows various characteristics of the selected acoustic piano, electric piano, or harpsichord sound to be shaped from the instruments’ touchscreen display, with settings to adjust voicing and regulation, string, damper, and cabinet resonances, and subtle hammer, damper, and key release noises. It is even possible to adjust the precise tuning and volume of individual notes, before storing one’s favorite instrument configuration to memory.Integrated Bluetooth® MIDI and Audio connectivity. In addition to standard MIDI jacks for connecting to other instruments, the CA78 digital piano also boasts integrated Bluetooth MIDI and Audio technology that allows the instrument to communicate with supported smart devices wirelessly. Once connected to a phone, tablet, or laptop, CA78 digital piano owners can enjoy a wide variety of exciting musicrelated apps that enhance their learning and playing experience, or stream audio from songs and videos through the instrument’s speakers without any additional cables. Availability of Bluetooth function dependent on market location.USB to Device functionality, with MP3/WAV file recording and playback. The CA78 digital piano is equipped with USB connectors that not only allows this instrument to be connected to a computer for MIDI use, but also to load and save data to USB memory devices directly. This ‘USB to Device’ feature allows recorded songs stored in internal memory to be saved to USB for posterity, or standard MIDI files (SMF) downloaded from the internet to be conveniently played back without additional hardware.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 save performances as MP3 or WAV files for emailing to friends and family, listening to on the move, or for further editing using an audio workstation.Premium audio hardware, powered by Onkyo Developed in collaboration with Onkyo, one of Japan’s leading premium audio equipment manufacturers, the CA78 digital piano is the first musical instruments to utilise specialist components designed for high-end audio reproduction.
