Artis 7 Touch & Action

Kurzweil uses the Fatar TP-8 semi-weighted action which is the best action you can ever find on Kurzweil Pianos.
This is also known as the 76 note semi-weighted action with velocity sensitive keys.

The Fatar TP-8, or the A.K.A., 76 note semi-weighted action with velocity sensitive keys is really a self explanatory keyboard.

In other words…

Kurzweil Artis 7 uses the Fatar TP-8, which has 76 notes on the keys and they are specially designed with semi-weighted action keys that can give comfort to performers.
The velocity sensitive keys recognize the strength at which key is pressed and the keyboard will react with one of the greatest responsiveness.

In simpler words…

This keyboard is the king of all digital piano actions out there.

Steve Wonder and Ray Kurzweil

Ray Kurzweil, the renowned founder of Kurzweil Music, is the very person who realized the future of computer music and who actually substantiated the power of computer music technology. Steve Wonder asked for realistic sound electronic  In the 1980s and 1990s he pioneered some of the industry’s most loved synthesizers. Kurzweil incorporated ‘MARA’ sound chip ino home digital piano products, and MP10 is the affordable one. Its sound is fairly similar to “organic” instrument sound compared to any other digital piano brand. See Kurzweil’s MP10 versatility in the video below: MP10 has 88 tones. They are very fun features to play with. I personally like MP10’s orchestra sound .

 

 

In terms of polyphony, (“polyphony” means how many sound it can be played simultaneously.For example, you may drum and strings layered along with piano, so higher number means that it can encompass more sounds at the same time. Nowadays, pretty much all of digital pianos in the market has enough polyphony to be played without loss of any sound) Kurzweil has 64-note polyphony, which sounds a little bit low. 

“Polyphony” technology is important when it comes to electronic instrument. See the picture below. When you add sustain pedals, reverb, a lot of layers at the same time, 128-tone memory will soon be filled creating interruption to your music. 

 

It only has 64 polyphony, but the “number” is not always necessarily important. There are some reviewers on the Internet who think Kurzweil’s 64 polyphony is too low, but the misunderstanding comes from the misunderstanding of Kurzweil’s advanced polyphony technology. To put it simple, there are one OSC (oscillator, sound wave) for each DSP (digital signal processor) in other brand’s technology. In Kurzweil’s polyphony technology, THREE OSCs are assinged for each DSP, so with Kurzweil’s polyphony technology, it can employ 3X more than the number. So technically speaking, Kurzweil’s MP10’s 64 polyphony represents 192-note polyphony. 

 

 

This is Jordan Charles Rudess playing with Kurzweil K2600X. Back then, this Kurzweil model only has 48 polyphony, but we don’t feel any note dropping. It sounds amazing! 

 


Touch —- Kurzweil MP10 is 88 key weighted with LK-40L action system for the Kawai MP10 and Fatar TP/40L action system for the Kawai MP10F. LK-40L action system is
you can even adjust your keyboard sensitivity.
There are 10 selectable response levels to choose from by adjusting responsiveness of the keyboard you can adjust your comfort of performance on Kurzweil MP10.
This is why we highly recommend this product to both beginners and experienced pianists.

1. Appearance & Cabinet  

Let’s have a look. Kurzweil MP10 has a sliding lid to prevent dust to sit on the keys. Kurzweil MP10’s dimension is 56 X 34 X 19 (inch) and it weighs around 115 lbs. 

Kurzweil MP10 has two color options: ebony polish and satin rosewood. Ebony polish is $1799 and you are looking for “polished” finish for your piano, it can be a good buy under $2000 (usually polished finish is more than $2000) Satin Rosewood is $1499.

Also, a nice bench comes with your purchase.

Let’s have a look as a comparison. Here are some pictures of Casio digital piano PX850 and Kurzweil digital piano MP10. They both have sliding lids to prevent dust to sit on the keys. Kurzweil’s MP10 is bigger than Casio’s PX850. Kurzweil’s digital piano MP10’s dimension is 56 X 34 X 19 (inch) and Casio’s digital piano PX850 is slimmer – 59 X 15 X 16 (inch). Kurzweil’s MP10 (115 lbs) is about 8 pounds heavier than Casio’s PX850 (97lbs).

Here are some more pictures to compare the size of these two pianos. Casio digital piano PX850 is slimmer, and Kurzweil digital piano MP10 is bigger.

As Casio digital piano PX850 has pedals, but they are an inch shorter than regular piano’s pedal – it focuses on its “slim” design. Kurzweil digital piano MP10 has a “fancier” cabinet and it comes with regular-sized pedals.

Function—- Kurzweil MP10 has many functions that can satisfy the users.

  1. Sound| Kurzweil MP10 has 88 Expressive sounds including award winning Triple Strike Grand Piano, all taken from the PC3. With 64 selectable voices, players are offered many different choices to play with. 78 pre-recorded interactive patterns in a variety of styles.
