Why a Digital Piano?
Are digital pianos as good as “real” pianos?

Most people cannot tell the difference between traditional pianos and digital pianos today. This is because modern technology is so advanced that digital pianos can replicate the touch and feel of ‘real’ pianos so accurately.

Do the keys feel real?

Yes. The keys on digital pianos are usually ‘weighted’ so the way they feel to play and react to your input is just like the real thing. Don’t think that digital pianos feel and sound like that old Casio keyboard you got for Christmas in 1986.

Do they need tuning?

No. Digital pianos never go out of tune, so never need tuning.

Do they have the right amount of keys?

Yes. Most digital pianos have the standard 88 keys.

Can I wear headphones to practice?

Yes. When you plug headphones into a digital piano the speakers are disabled so only you can hear the sound. This is ideal for practicing late at night or when you don’t want to disturb anyone. Note: The standard jack socket for headphones is 6.35mm. iPhone headphone plugs are 3.5mm so you would need an adaptor.

Why do digital piano prices vary so much?

The price of a digital piano depends on a number of factors, for example whether the keys are plastic or wooden, whether the speakers are big or small, the amount of extra features it has like rhythms and backings or multi track recordings. The cabinet design and finish is a factor too. Small portable pianos tend to be cheaper than the more traditional looking non-portable ones.

Can I connect my iPhone/iPad?

Many of the Yamaha digital pianos and keyboards allow connection to an iPad/tablet now for various purposes. Yamaha have developed a lot of apps for their instruments, you can read more about them on the App Store.

What about other manufacturers of digital piano?

We are an independent shop but choose Yamaha digital pianos exclusively because they are regarded as the best in the world. You will find Yamaha digital pianos in most music schools, colleges and universities, and teachers nearly always recommend Yamaha because of how authentic the touch and sound is.

The Korg Kronos 2 needs no introduction, favoured by some of the worlds leading musicians, this premium powerhouse delivers without compromise. The staggeringly powerful synth engine fulfills the demands of some of the most well known artists and their producers thanks to the amount of innovation, imagination and technological advances that have all been developed to inspire without end.

This version of the Kronos 2 combines the portability of a 73-note synth and combines it with the full expression of a piano thanks to the Real Weighted Hammer Action 3 keyboard. 

MULTIPLE BRAINS

The Korg Kronos 2 73 Note Music Workstation gives you the power of 9 world class synthesizers in one unit. Each of these delivers the best in available technology to accurately reproduce their specific instrument. This includes real time control, effects, modulation routing and masses of variables that will cater to your sound designing needs.

For most players, one of the most important sounds they will use is the piano. The Kronos 2 utilises the enhanced SGX-2 Grand Piano sound engine to offer up a huge collection of painstakingly sampled German and Japanese grands. All piano's have every key sampled separately and contain enhancements such as sympathetic string resonance to give you a piano experience unlike any other. 

Other engines of the Kronos 2 include the EP-1 engine for rich, energetic and mellow electronic piano's, the CX-3 engine for precise tonewheel organs, a HD-1 synthesis engine for mind-blowing textures as well as other engines for legacy synth, orchestral and drums/percussion. 

THE KARMA ENGINE

A pioneering technology at its inception in 2001 KARMA has matured to bring even more functionality to the Korg Kronos 2, such as: Wave-Sequencing, Note Mapping and 8 scenes per layer. This in addition to its unparalleled ability to produce phrases, drum grooves and full backing tracks based on how you play taking backing tracks to a level of sophistication never heard before.

PUSHING EXPRESSION FURTHER

With such innovative sound production, you would expect to have a level of control and expression to compliment the power within the Kronos 2… And boy do you get it! Korg's flagship RH3 weighted hammer action is the perfect balance between functionality and design giving you the ultimate acoustic playing experience. 

The addition of a plethora of assignable knobs, vector joystick, ribbon controller and assignable switches give you the power to change variable aspects of your performance on the fly with natural ease. The built in 800×600 TouchView graphical user interface screen gives you the ability to fly through menus and presets to get to the sound or function that you want without delay.

FULL SEQUENTIAL POWER

The powerful sequencer in the Kronos 2 73 is capable of recording up to 16 MIDI and 16 audio tracks. This gives you the power of a small recording studio at your fingertips. All audio recording is fully editable and the huge 60GB internal SSD (expandable to 2 drives) means you can record many pieces for future performances.

Finally, the Kronos 2 73 comes with huge analog and digital connectivity including optical, USB and full MIDI capability as well as balanced and unbalanced audio connections, so whatever your performance or recording set-up, the Kronos 73 will integrate without issue. A thing of true beauty, the Korg Kronos 2 73 Note Music Workstation will take your musical creativity and performance to amazing new heights.
