Please Pass It On! AdminGlobal ModMod. I have owned mmp8 Kawai MP8 keyboard for over 10 years, and I’m currently using the Pianoteq 5 sounds over the internal piano sounds. I have not looked for another digital piano or keyboard controller in the last 10 years.

Also, is there a big difference between the newer keyboards having a “let off” feature compared to kwai MP8. Going to a musical instrument shop and trying one out would be the best option, surely?

All user reviews for the Kawai MP8

It’s hard for me to AB test – because I would be comparing the MP11’s internal kkawai against my MP8’s internal sounds and sound library. So I’m just asking for other thoughts if they have any personal opinions on comparing the keyboard actions.

It wouldn’t hurt to have some info. Roland’s PH50, despite being a folded action, is more realistic in this sense. But, it’s also so close to the better grands I’ve played that I have a hard time characterizing it as not being right and I’m not saying there isn’t room for kaaai. IMO GF1 is such a phenomenal piano action, particularly in a slab. I honestly wouldn’t mind if it were a tad heavier, although I’ve noticed that the VPC1’s RM3 Grand action with the shorter pivots is still very noticeably heavier than the GF2 with revised hammer weights and counterweights.


Or, load up a VST on a laptop and bring it with you to audition, so the tone generation is the same between the two. It may be worth waiting to see if anything drops at the end of the month?

It’s a joy to play, and Kadai mostly play on an acoustic grand. There are also touch curves and lots of tweaking one can do in the Virtual Technician to get the responsiveness that you desire. Really, I don’t think it’s a problem playing the MP11 with the sounds. Sure, you can turn it off, but you keep in mind that it’s the responsiveness of the MP11 to the action that is part of the value.

I am a happy owner of the MP8 and recently cleaned the inside and adjusted the spacing between the keys and more. It is defenitely a kasai feeling keybed than the GF or RM2but more in a ‘quality feel’ way. Substancial would be a better description.

Fast repetitions are definetly easier on both the RM2 and GF keybed. Althaugh what made the Kawai MP8 the standout kawaii it hit the market is less obvious nowadays. Yamaha and Roland have wooden keys also for what it’s worth and Casio has developed a hammer mechanism based on a real action too. Kawai feels less substancial with their latest actions but more fluidAnd i never understood the need of ‘let off’ simulation New Topics – Multiple Forums.
