The most authentic keyboard, the most realistic sound, and the most articulate control. While others may claim to be ‘the best’, only one can be considered the most genuine. Kawai MP11 – the stage piano for music professionals who do not accept compromise.
Stunning Acoustic Pianos
A variety of beautiful concert, jazz, and pop grand pianos, and a full-bodied traditional upright – appropriately voiced and mic’d for a broad range of musical styles. Enjoy playing the original sounds, or delve into the powerful Virtual Technician to adjust the piano beneath your fingertips.
Cherised Vintage EQs
A treasure trove of authentic tine, reed, and modern electric pianos, crunchy clavs, and a striking electric grand – lovingly sampled to preserve their characteristics and imperfections. Play them clean, or apply over 100 different effects, before plugging into carefully prepared amp/speaker simulations.
Inspiring Subsidiary Sounds
Studio quality strings, pads, basses, and other essential sounds suitable for creating splits, layering with acoustic pianos and EPs, or for simply playing solo. Tweak each voice using comprehensive ADSR parameters, or fatten the overall sound with flexible parametric EQ.
Accessible And Intuitive Panel
A large graphic LCD display, four assignable real-time control knobs, and a well organised, immediately usable panel interface. Leave the manual at home and concentrate on playing, rather than trying to remember which button does what.
The Most Authentic Keyboard
The keyboard action for serious pianists who appreciate true expression: Grand Feel delivers the most authentic playing experience ever found in a stage piano. The longest keys, the longest pivot, and crafted entirely from wood – three reasons why Kawai is the industry leader.
Masterful MIDI Control
Connect to a PC or Mac via USB, and to your favourite semi-weighted boards via standard MIDI, then control both simultaneously. The MP11 allows up to four MIDI channels to be controlled at the same time, each with their own custom key ranges and user-definable pedal and knob CC# assignments.
Generous Setup Memories
Store and recall every customised sound, knob position, fader level, and adjustable parameter at the touch of a button. With over 200 setup memories, the MP11 is ideal for busy stage musicians who like to plan several shows ahead, before going out on the road.
Pro-Audio, Pedal, And MIDI Jacks
Connect directly to the house PA using pro-grade XLRs, and to personal monitors with the high quality Line Out jacks. Enjoy realistic damper, sostenuto, and soft playing control, by connecting the included Kawai F-30 triple pedal unit, or assign a range of alternative functions to individual pedals.
A Proud Legacy
With over 85 years of knowledge and experience in crafting world-class pianos, the Kawai name is trusted by concert pianists and respected academics throughout the world. Likewise, among leading stage performers, the MP Series also enjoys a stellar reputation for quality and performance.
Quality Design, Materials, And Build
Elegantly finished wooden side panels, sleek gloss-black paintwork and a raised fallboard displaying the Kawai family name give the MP11 a distinctly acoustic presence. Its sturdy aluminium and steel chassis, and reinforced base reassures players that this instrument is built for the stage.
