The MP20 digital piano combines value and affordability with 200 of the best sounds ever developed for KURZWEIL professional keyboards and sports features specifically engineered for sound, convenience, and control.
DESIGN...Fusing traditional spinet piano design and styling, the MP20 is available in two professional finishes: a fine Ebony Polish finish has a classic elegant look for more formal venues while the Satin Rosewood is at home in any room. The uniquely angled, tuned, ported-woofer enclosures provide deep bass and heightened sound dispersion to complement the instrument's broad sound set. With tweeters placed directly behind the keys, a wide stereo soundfield is created, optimized for both player and audience. The MP20's simple and intuitive control panel is angled for improved visibility/use and features an easy-slide key cover.
SOUND...The MP20 uses Kurzweil's exclusive Mara sound chip and VAST architecture to create the most realistic and playable instrument sounds available. The digital signals are then realized through hand-matched amplifiers and speakers to produce a beautiful yet intimate sound field.
The MP20 sonic pallet features the famous Kurzweil Triple Strike Grand Piano along with a diverse array of top notch and categorized instrument selections - electric pianos, organs, orchestral, drums, basses, horns, winds, guitars, percussion and more - are all available for creating entire musical productions in the comfort of your own home.
The MP20's easy Split and Layering features offer yet another dimension of performance while it's "Favorite" buttons provide instant recall of your most needed presets and custom combinations.
CONTROL...Great piano control starts with the keyboard action and the MP20 has one of Kurzweil's best proprietary hammer-action keyboards. Hammer motion, not key motion, is sensed to provide the most accurate dynamic control possible. The new MP20 keyboard grades the hammer weight through 4 gradual zones from light in the treble end to heavy in the bass end. The action also features an escapement which reproduces the let-off and jack engagement feel of a real acoustic piano.
Complimenting the key-action, the MP20 features all 3 standard acoustic piano pedals built-in (sustain, sostenuto and soft) along with an optional Volume/Expression pedal input facilitating dynamic performances.
The Next Generation Of Custom Sound Chip Technology
After years of development by Kurzweil's Boston-based engineers, Kurzweil's next generation custom chip technology is now included throughout our new piano lineup. Designed specifically to the highest musical and audio quality standards, this technology offers a range of deep expression and spectacular sound unlike any other.
PC3 Series Technology
Features hand-picked programs taken directly from Kurzweil's acclaimed PC3 Product Series.
Depth Is The Key To A Realistic Piano Sound
Using Kurzweil's Triple-Strike Grand Piano sample and up to 32 layers per voice, the sounds are unequalled in dynamic range, expressiveness, and realism. And Kurzweil's multiple ambience effects realistically enhance those sounds just like a fine concert hall.
Realistic Orchestral Instrument Sounds
Every instrument has unique sonic characteristics governed by its physical structure, and Kurzweil has captured and recreated these faithfully. The Kurzweil digital pianos provide exceptional control, responsiveness, and dynamic range, with the ability to recreate other instrument sounds as realistically as they do piano.
