Flagship Piano Sound From Harmonic Imaging XL

Perfectly complementing the expressive keyboard, the CA501's sound engine draws from over a decade of Kawai's relentless research into digital piano sampling. Using their proprietary Harmonic Imaging XL process, the flagship SK-EX Rendering piano sound is a breathtaking recreation of Kawai's peerless EX concert grand. Recorded from the player's perspective, this new sample set captures every nuance with a bright, clear tone and distinctive attack transients. Subtle damper resonances, deep bass and shimmering highs make the sampled SK-EX sound as vivid as the real thing.
