Three world-class grand pianos in a single instrument

Get the sounds of the highly acclaimed concert grand pianos, the "Shigeru Kawai EX" and the legendary "EX" as well as the two metre model, the "Shigeru Kawai SK-5" in your very own home. Play these fantastic grand pianos on the first class "Grand Feel II" wooden key action and discover the natural sound provided by the newly developed speaker system or with our new SHS headphone technology.

 

 

Grand Feel II wooden-key action with Ebony & Ivory Touch key surfaces and ‘Let-Off’ mechanism.

The CS8 digital piano utilises Kawai’s latest Grand Feel II wooden-key keyboard action, which draws upon over 85 years of acoustic piano craftsmanship to provide an exceptionally realistic playing experience. As with a grand piano, all eighty-eight black and white keys are crafted entirely from long pieces of wood, pivoting on a central balance pin in a smooth, seesaw-like motion. The Grand Feel II keys are longer than any other digital piano keyboard action, with the pivot point distance matching that of a Kawai grand piano. When the front of a key is pressed down, the rear rises, throwing a hammer which plays the note. These metal hammers have been micro-engineered to optmise their centre of gravity, and are graded in size and weight to replicate the heavier bass and lighter treble notes of an acoustic grand piano. The forward and backward movements of each hammer are precisely measured using triple-sensor technology, providing faster key repetition, improved responsiveness, and enhanced playing realism. In addition to grade-weighted hammers, the Grand Feel II action also features counterweights placed within each key. As with an acoustic piano, these finely balanced weights help to lighten the touch of the keyboard during pianissimo passages, while adding a feel of greater substance when playing with force. The Grand Feel II keyboard action even reproduces the subtle let-off sensation felt when playing the keys of a grand piano very softly, satisfying the expectations of even the most discerning pianists. Finally, the Grand Feel II keyboard action features Kawai’s Ebony & Ivory Touch key surfaces. These finely textured materials gently absorb moisture to assist playing control, and possess a natural, matte finish that is smooth, but not slippery.

 

Shigeru Kawai SK-EX, SK-5, andKawai EX instruments reproduced with Harmonic Imaging XL 88-key sampling

The CS8 digital piano captures the magnificent tone of Kawai’s flagship Shigeru Kawai SK-EX full concert, and Shigeru Kawai SK-5 medium-sized grand pianos. Widely regarded as the ‘premier pianos of Japan’, Shigeru Kawai instruments grace the stages of concert halls and musical institutions throughout the world, and are prized for their exceptional tonal clarity. In addition, the CS8 also features the distinctive sound of Kawai’s highly acclaimed EX concert grand piano, which has frequently been selected by professional pianists in such prestigious events as the Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Rubinstein international piano competitions, among others. All three instruments have been carefully recorded, meticulously analysed, and faithfully reproduced with full 88-key sampling using the latest Harmonic Imaging™ XL sound technology. This unique process accurately recreates the broad dynamic range of the original grand pianos, affording pianists an extraordinary level of expressiveness ranging from the softest pianissimo to the strongest, boldest fortissimo.

Strong selection of additional instrument sounds

Supplementing the realistic acoustic piano voices, the CS8 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 Four Hands modes divide the keyboard into two independent sections. The volume balances for each playing mode can also be adjusted quickly and easily using the real-time panel controls.

Virtual Technician adjustments to personalise the instrument’s character

The CS8 digital pianos’ Virtual Technician feature allows various characteristics of the selected acoustic piano, electric piano, or harpsichord sound to be shaped at the touch of a button, 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 personalised instrument configuration to memory.

USB to Device functionality, withMP3/WAV file recording and playback

The CS8 digital piano is equipped with USB connectors that not only allow these instruments 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 instrument settings or 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 favourite 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.

Wide range of connectivity options

The CS8 digital piano features a variety of connectivity options, with Line-level output jacks that allow the instrument to be enjoyed in larger settings such as churches and schools. Standard MIDI and ‘USB to Host’ connectors ensure flexibility when using computers and other electronic instruments, while the stereo Line-in connector provides a convenient method of mixing in audio from a laptop, tablet, or other digital device.

 

The Kawai EX concert grand piano is widely regarded by professional pianists and piano technicians as the fi nest instrument of its class. Hand-built by our distinguished Master Piano Artisans at the Shigeru Kawai Piano Research Laboratory in Ryuyo, Japan, each EX instrument undergoes a meticulous regulation and refinement process within a specially designed anechoic chamber. Following this lengthy preparation period, the completed EX piano receives a fi nal series of rigorous quality inspections, before eventually taking pride of place on the centre stage of the world’s most prestigious musical institutions and concert halls. The beautiful sound of the EX concert grand piano is at the heart of the new CS6, with all eighty-eight keys of this world-class instrument painstakingly recorded, analysed, and reproduced as high-fi delity digital waveforms. Recording each key individually in this way preserves the rich harmonic character of the original EX grand piano, and guarantees that the sound heard when playing one of the CS6’s wooden keys is a faithful representation of the acoustic source.When playing the piano, the amount of pressure applied to the keyboard affects both the volume of the sound produced, and the unique tonal character of each note. Therefore, in order to gather a realistic acoustic portrait of the EX grand piano, not only is each key recorded individually, but also captured at various diff erent strengths, ranging from gentle pianissimo to thunderous fortissimo. The new CS6 off ers a highly detailed acoustic portrait, with Ultra Progressive Harmonic Imaging sound technology ensuring smooth tonal transitions across the keyboard and throughout the dynamic range.

The second most important characteristic of a piano is its touch – how the keyboard responds beneath the fi nger tips, and the sense of connection that one feels with the instrument when playing

Embracing many of the long-established principles associated with an acoustic piano, the CS6’s RM3 Grand keyboard action combines realistic materials, motion, and mechanism to recreate the exceptional touch of the finest concert grand pianos. All eighty-eight black and white keys are crafted entirely from long pieces of wood, with fi nely textured ivory-like surfaces applied to absorb moisture and assist control. Each wooden key pivots smoothly on a central balance pin, replicating the familiar ‘seesaw’ motion of an acoustic piano action.

When pressed, the back of each key triggers a grade-weighted hammer to play the note, while additional counter-weights placed at the front of the bass keys help to lighten their heavier touch during pianissimo passages. Finally, the CS6’s let-off simulation even manages to recreate the subtle ‘notch’ sensation felt when playing the keys of a grand piano very softly, satisfying the expectations of the most discerning pianists, and underlining the instrument’sunique acoustic piano pedigree.

The CS6 digital piano features a variety of realistic acoustic piano sounds that are ideally suited to playing a wide range of Classical, Jazz, Pop, and Modern musical styles. Furthermore, the instrument’s Virtual Technician function allows players to perform voicing and regulation adjustments at the touch of a button, personalising the tonal character of the piano beneath their fi ngertips

Modern USB features allow the CS6 to be connected to a computer for MIDI use, or to load and save data to USB memory devices directly. This USB to Device functionality allows songs recorded and 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 favourite songs. It is even possible to record performances directly as MP3 or WAV files for emailing to family and friends, or casual listening away from the piano.
