Grand Feel Keyboard
The new grand feel keyboard action combined with the ivory and ebony feel surfaces of the wooden keys provide a totally realistic playing experience and the triple-sensor key detection and let-off simulation ensures that your playing dynamic is accurately translated to the powerful sound engine.
The CS 8 contains the latest harmonic imaging XL sound engine that assists in delivering one of the most captivating grand piano sounds to date. Each note of the Kawai premium grand pianos are painstakingly sampled at many different velocities for an incredibly accurate reproduction in your home or venue.
Add to all this the grand feel pedal system finished in silver, with full support for half-pedalling techniques and the end result delivers one of the best digital piano experiences available today.
More than just a piano
Along with the ultimate piano recreation, you get a collection of 60 internal sounds that vary from rich electric pianos, bluesy organs, deep strings, basses and synth sounds. The dual and split playing modes let you layer voices as you see fit to create your own combinations which can be saved into any of the 16 registration memory slots for instant recall at any time.
A rich array of multi-effects are built into the CS 8 including reverb, delays, rotary speaker simulation and much more. Your playing data can be recorded into the internal 10-song recorder or as audio to a USB stick in perfect CD quality so that you can store an unlimited amount of performances to treasure forever.
Other things to mention are built in Alfred lessons to help improve technique and strength, 176 pre-recorded concert magic songs and the powerful 2 x 50 watt speaker system.
