Kurzweil has released details of two new stage pianos, the SP4-7 & SP4-8 at this years NAMM.
Included in the SP4-7 stage pianos are some of their best pianos, string sections, vintage keys, KB3 organ emulations, orchestral sounds, guitars, drums, winds and Take 6 vocals.

Its sleek design makes it easy to carry and takes up minimal space on stage or in the studio, weighing in at a mere 24 lbs.
Its 76 semi-weighted keys are fast and responsive, using new touch-response software to ensure that the SP4-7 feels more like a musical instrument, not a piece of technology.
SP4-7 includes dedicated buttons for one-touch splitting and layering, and Setup Mode provides 4 discreet zones, each with its own extensive MIDI control and it has a USB port which can be used for MIDI, storing/saving sounds and setups and for OS updates.
In addition to the SP7-7 the SP4-8 stage piano, is a premium instrument designed for musicians who require expression and sound quality.
Professionals and hobbyists alike will be able to appreciate the responsive 88-note hammer-weighted action, nuanced sound design and advanced performance features, all of which set the SP4-8 apart.
SP4-8 offers the best Kurzweil has to offer; a variety of exquisite acoustic pianos, vintage electric pianos, dazzling string sections, lush pads, KB3 organs, mallets, drums, basses, guitars and more.
With four programmable zones, the SP4-8 conveniently allows you to create splits and layers at the touch of a button meaning you can react and adjust your sound in a live setting on-the-fly with ease.
With additional sounds online available for download, you can create a personalized sound set with absolutely no "filler".Posted on 6 Jan 2011 14:33 to category : Instruments News
