TOUCH

CN29

The Touch of a Grand Piano: Responsive Hammer III keyboard action

The CN29メs class-leading Responsive Hammer III keyboard action recreates the supreme touch of an acoustic grand piano, with its realistic movement and rigid, springless design providing a smooth and natural piano playing experience.ᅠ The instrumentメs triple-sensor key detection system enhances responsiveness and accuracy, while structural reinforcements throughout the action assembly help to minimise noise and key wobble during staccato and fortissimo passages.

CN29

The weight of the keyboard is appropriately graded to mirror the heavier bass hammers and lighter treble hammers of an acoustic piano, while let-off simulation recreates the subtle ムnotchメ sensation felt when softly playing the keys of a grand piano. These important characteristics allow discerning pianists to practise their expanding repertoire with confidence, and ensure that there are no unpleasant surprises when called upon to perform using the finest acoustic grand pianos.

CN29

Authentic 88-key Counterweights

In addition to grade-weighted hammers, the Responsive Hammer III keyboard action also features counterweights embedded within each black and white 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.

CN29

Ivory Touch key surfaces

The impressive CN29 features Kawaiメs highly regarded Ivory Touch key surfaces as standard.ᅠ This finely textured material gently absorbs fingertip perspiration and oils to assist playing control, and possesses a natural, matte finish that is smooth but not slippery.

 

Furthermore, this moisture is absorbed without dirt or grease permeating the surface, allowing the keytops to be wiped clean easily using just a damp cloth.

CN29

Let-off Simulation

As the most authentic digital piano keyboard action in its class, Responsive Hammer III even reproduces the ムlet-offメ characteristic of acoustic piano actions.ᅠ

 

This subtle ムnotchメ sensation can be felt when playing the keys of a grand piano very gently, and may be used by experienced pianists to aid control when playing pianissimo passages.

SOUND

CN29

The Sound of a Grand Piano: Two world-class instruments

Earning a reputation as the ムpremier pianos of Japanメ, Shigeru Kawai instruments grace the stages of concert halls and musical institutions throughout the world, and are prized for their outstanding tonal clarity and exceptional dynamic range.

 

The CN29 captures the magnificent tone of the flagship Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano.ᅠ This peerless instrument is hand-built by Master Piano Artisans at the Shigeru Kawai Piano Research Laboratory in Ryuyo, Japan, and widely regarded as one of the finest instruments in its class.

 

In addition, the CN29 also features the distinctive sound of Kawaiメs highly acclaimed EX concert grand piano, which has been selected by professional pianists in such prestigious events as the Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Rubinstein international piano competitions, among others.

 

Both the SK-EX and EX are faithfully reproduced with full 88-key sampling using advanced Harmonic Imagingル sound technology, to establish a new standard in digital piano tonal quality, and allow musicians to appreciate the contrasting properties of each.

CN29

Full 88-key stereo piano sampling

The rich, expressive sound of the SK-EX and EX concert grand pianos is at the heart of the CN29, with all eighty-eight keys of these world-class instruments painstakingly recorded, meticulously analysed, and accurately reproduced as high-fidelity digital waveforms.

 

Recording each key individually in this way ヨ as opposed to stretching the same tone over several different notes ヨ preserves the grand pianosメ unique harmonic character, and guarantees that the sound heard when playing any one of the CN29メs weighted keys is a faithful representation of the original acoustic source.

CN29

Additional sounds & playing modes

Supplementing the beautiful acoustic piano voices, the CN29 also features a modest selection of additional sounds, ranging from electric pianos and drawbar or church organs, to strings, human choirs, and synth 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 Four Hands mode divides the keyboard into two independent 44-key sections.ᅠ This feature is particularly useful in learning environments, allowing teacher and student (or student and student) to play together at the same time using a single instrument.

CN29

Integrated Bluetoothᆴ connectivity

In addition to standard USB and MIDI ports, the CN29ᅠ also boast integrated Bluetooth MIDI technology, allowing the digital piano to communicate with supported smart devices wirelessly.

 

Once paired with a phone, tablet, or laptop, CN29 owners can easily expand the instrumentメs functionality with a wide range of education, performance, and scoring apps.ᅠ A dedicated Kawai Virtual Technician control app is also freely available, providing an enjoyable way to learn about and adjust various acoustic piano characteristics from an attractive touch interface, without the need for additional adaptors or cables.

* Availability of Bluetoothᆴ function may vary depending on market area.
* For more information please refer to the Bluetooth MIDI Information support page.
