The Korg C1 Air is an excellent alternative to a traditional acoustic, in that it never requires tuning, and private practice is possible via headphones. The C1 Air is also a lot less heavy and bulky than an equivalent upright and fits around today’s more compact living spaces.

A variety of features imbue the Korg C1 Air with an inspirational character, including 30 realistic voices, on-board recording, and even Bluetooth audio streaming, allowing you to play music through the C1 Air’s exceptional speaker system either for entertainment or accompaniment.

Key Features:

Made in Japan – Premium Japanese Quality
RH3 keyboard accurately simulates acoustic piano touch and response
Contemporary design cabinet available in 3 color options
Digital recreation of true grand piano resonance
Thirty high-quality voices
Bluetooth audio playback
The Stereo sound optimizer gives presence to the sound when the headphones are used
Newly developed amplification and speaker system

RH3 keyboard provides a great-feeling playing experience

The Korg C1 Air features the real weighted hammer action 3 (RH3) keyboard that accurately simulates the playing experience of a grand piano, with a heavier playing feel in the lower register that becomes lighter as you move up the keyboard. It is extremely responsive, even when notes are repeated quickly, while the performer’s expressive dynamics are faithfully interpreted even in the most complex passages. Key touch control is also provided, with a choice of five levels of sensitivity (light, normal, heavy, stable, fixed) to specify how your playing dynamics are reflected by the sound produced.

C1 Air | Tradition and technology in harmony create a concert grand piano virtually anywhere

The sound of a piano changes significantly depending on how it is played. In order to provide this high level of expressive power from a digital piano, two concert grand pianos were selected by professional pianists, regulated and tuned by master technicians and sampled by KORG engineers. This complex process enables the C1 to simulate the experience of playing either a German grand or a Japanese grand, and were chosen to reflect a broad musical spectrum providing faithful recreations of dark, subtle and intense classical music through to bright and powerful jazz and pop music. The C1 gives you natural and satisfying grand piano performance at home, on stage or in the studio.

Damper Resonance & Key-off Simulation

Both the German Grand Piano and the Japanese Grand Piano sounds realistically recreate the “damper resonance” effect produced by the sympathetic resonance of the strings in an acoustic piano when the damper pedal is held down.

Key-off simulation recreates the sounds produced when the player’s fingers lift off the keys. The damper resonance effect and key-off simulation provide an even greater feeling of realism as you play!

Bluetooth audio support on the Korg C1 Air

Connect a Bluetooth device such as a smartphone to the C1 Air and enjoy playing the piano along with your stored music or other audio. When you are not playing the piano, you can use the C1 Air as a powerful Bluetooth speaker system.

Two-track song recorder to instantly record your performance

Two-track digital recording is instantly available to help you analyze or archive your performances. You can record each hand separately or record an additional track onto a previously-recorded song. Playback tempo can be adjusted and up to 99 user songs can be saved in the C1 Air.

A variety of keyboard layout options

Simply by pressing one button, you can apply a bass sound to the lower register of the keyboard. Play piano with your right hand and bass with your left to instantly enjoy jazz performance styles. By pressing two of the tone buttons simultaneously, you can easily layer two sounds together. For example, layer piano and strings to play with a rich piano and orchestra combination. There’s also a partner mode that enables you to divide the piano keyboard into two identical sections on left and right, each with their own damper pedal. This is a great way for teacher and pupil to play duets or copy and practice during lessons.

Forty piano songs with helpful features for practicing

In addition to ten demonstration songs that showcase the different sounds of the C1 Air, there are also 40 built-in piano songs. To help you learn, you can control the tempo, play back the right-hand and left-hand parts separately, and use A-B repeat to practice more complex sections.

Equipped with three pedals as standard with half-pedaling feature

The pedals are an essential element of piano performance, and the C1 Air is equipped with the full complement of three pedals found on a grand piano: damper, soft and sostenuto. The damper and soft pedals also feature half-pedaling for even more detailed expression.
