True piano feel
Equip yourself with piano skills you can take anywhere. Practising on a P45 digital means you'll never be thrown by the feeling of playing a different instrument. No matter what sort of piano you sit down at you won't have to adjust your approach.
Authentic features like the graded hammer standard keyboard and the sustain pedal give the natural feel of playing on an acoustic. The keys work with a mechanism that replicates the hammer action in an acoustic piano. This gives you authentic-feeling resistance when you press down, in contrast to button-like keys on a non-weighted instrument.
Realistic touches like the heavier grading at the bottom of the keyboard and a lighter feel for the higher keys are true to a piano's nature. Likewise, you'll get used to using a pedal just like one you'd find on an acoustic piano, making this instrument even more worthwhile to play on. It creates a realistic pedal action as it sustains your notes. Authentic features like this make the P45 a favourite amongst teachers to help students build proper technique.
You'll impress with an expressive piano tone. The P45 is great to practise on but it is more than up to the job of performance too. You won't be compromising on sound with this entry-level piano, which is one of the joys of going digital.
As you play on your P45, your music comes out through the piano's powerful, but discreetly placed, speakers, creating an impressive stereo sound. You can practise late into the night without bothering your neighbours by plugging in headphones. Then, you can dazzle with a polished performance by turning up the volume and filling a venue.
Advanced wave memory technology is used to create the P45's authentic tone. This is a sampling system which applies high-quality digital filter technology to recorded pieces of audio to create just the right sound for each key. It is able to realistically create the variations in waveform that come when you play in different dynamics. You are free to play just how you like with this rich sound library.
You can even take your own piano from home to performances. There's nothing holding you back with the lightweight P45, which is easy to transport in its slim, attractive design. You'll know there's a piano you can trust at any venue when you can bring the one you know and love wherever you go. It is only 11.5kg and has a depth of less than 30 cm, which makes it easily portable but also compact when it's at home. It's slim size won't take over your room without compromising on authentic tone.
Perks of going digital
You're in control with a digital piano. The acoustic piano setting is rich and authentic and you can easily get back to it from a different voice with the Grand Piano/Function button. You can move between the different voices easily with this simple one-button operation. Get inspired by voice demo songs. Switch between the 10 voices depending on the atmosphere you want to create, with a variety from grand piano to funky options like electric piano and vibraphone.
Learning is easy with an inbuilt metronome option and the ability to switch from hard, medium, soft, or fixed touch sensitivity. You and your teacher will also be thankful for the Duo Function which splits the keyboard in half, so they can demonstrate a technique which you can copy on your half of the keys, as well as letting you play duets together.
Have fun with your style by layering, or adding two different voices over one another to create just the sound that suits you. Going digital means that you can have some of these perks of a keyboard as well as getting a true piano sound.
