Kawai MP4
Specifications and prior reviews have said everything.


I file a notice as this is my path: Budget 1000-1500 € and thus a choice that turns away from the start of mp8 and Rd 700 sx. I was looking for a piano for my home studio, I use a lot of vsti not lugging the project and use the sounds live. I tried: Roland FP4 / 7 mp5 kawai, yamaha CP33 and p140, casio 110,310,410.
To touch
Exit all casio/yam/fp4: I would say in the order p140 casio and then fp4 (toy and really too soft for me).
Next big dilemma and Roland FP7 Kawai MP5. Roland FP7: good touch, but too heavy, too much inertia. Compare this with an acoustic that feels really, I'm not confirmed pianist so I spend my way because this artificial burden will cause problems in the technical parts difficult.
And this offer: Kawai mp4 € 700 new! Vive balances buy eyes closed and then there I am delighted with the touch. By far the best of those I've tried (the same as the MP5).

Everything is clear no problem, used with Cubase SX3. The controls are really simple and fast, we feel that the look is really master keyboard integrated into the development of the keyboard, and then the four areas ... really great to control as much internal as external sounds. Manual clear and concise.


The sounds and effects, let's face it, are perfectible and Roland is in front but I use it with The great and there the comparisons end. Forget the layers of strings and synths, the EP right for me but I am far from expert.
The piano is good, although some resonances give an impression metal. However, when I do not want to turn on the pc to run a VST, I can very much work with the internal sounds that are fun to play.


It's been a month since I use it and I admit that in retrospect it would have hurt to put twice as much for a piano style fp7/mp5. The value for money is amazing so I put 10 saw what you get for the price. 1000 times I ever did such a purchase.

See previous ones opinion

the four areas splitables / surperposables will on the width you want, it's really great! DDIS aves its knobs for volume and other Settings, it's great practice for live.
CRER a can of multis friendly enough, or from the internal sounds, or a sound module that does not offer multis (like my Roland SC88), or a combination of sounds and internal expanders!

BMOL small: it is 17 inches tall! (He has a face quite original, I like the old cot Bouzin) so be careful buying a flight or a cover, it goes right in!


Trs easy to use, not need the manual for most functions

There's just something that bothers me: default, sounds are the sustain pedal RULES "on", which keeps the sound as the piano pedals: for piano, so nickel, but the organ, for example, the sound gradually decrease ...
it is necessary to maintain the pedals really sound, rgler on "hold" (off / on / hold, then)
but the next redmarrage bte: return "on"
this problem the solution (lightweight) is seuvegarder sound in a multi, the pramtre of sustain pedals as backup with, but it's a shame ...
Personal, I ddi 4 multi organ sounds DIFFERENT (I use a lot), rgls on "hold" well sr, and I (s) active areas according to my needs ...

activation areas, precisely, is via 4 buttons DDIS, left front, a little too prs got my keys, the provision is not (my opinion) the most optimal for a fast zapping (live, especially), but it is long.


Trs good pianos, missing for a few honky-tonk ragtime ...
Varis organs and friendly, though not enough "Cracra", you can add a distortion, but too lgre, be better to go through a multi-effect for a while Gonglis
damage: the leslie is "fast / slow", with determination of amplitude, but it lacks power rgler speed as desired, good point, the rapid transition <> is slowly progressive
super sound of Wurlitzer, who loves me .... Supertramp yahoooo!
trs own sounds for the rest, enough to make a bit of everything. on the other hand for the synthse sound, go your way.
Varis effects and effective must j'achte a volume pedals to play other than auto wah! on electric piano, a top should be too :-)


I had a few months, it is top, I really regret it!
on the other hand, its 24 kg (or something like kek a) are that for RPET 'j'emmne still my A33 etmon expander is biiiiiiien lighter.

CRITERIA taient my purchase (followed by my satisfaction):
- Good touch piano: I am not classical concerts, but I could no longer touch any soft / lightweight of my Roland A33) -> perfect
- Multi-zone, my expander gre not multi itself -> 4 zone configurable wish, excellent!
- Internal sounds (not having to use expanders JUSE to play a trick on the piano) -> 64 sounds, real good!
- Protection of multis in question! (Some keyboards-Matra have only two memory areas .....) -> 64 presets, trs well! and fiddling, we can get more: for example, zones 1-2 for a split, 3-4 zones in layers, even backup to a multi, and we pass groups of 1-2 3 -4 as needed ...
That said, playing in groups, and the need to maintain a sound homognit, it does not sound diffrent each piece! So with 64 multi, there's enough to make dj!

test the keyboard to the touch (you may not like), to test the piano sounds (some may not like), but a hand for CHARACTERISTICS, buy eyes closed!
and the look is nice, right??

My only complaint: no output xlr.


-Touch is very nice, neither too heavy nor too light, bounced ideal property for a directory rock, jazz etc ... Although less well with wooden buttons (mp9500 and MP8) but said key timber called "Better to have the muscle to carry your toy." Here the animal is 25 kg, it's not bad, especially when you repeat two times a week
Simplicime-interface, even me I do, and the manual is quite clear. use is very instinctive. However, I would have liked a slightly larger screen, but hey I'm quibbling


-The sounds are excellent, beautiful organ, bass could not be better, the strings and brass are average. the prize is awarded to piano. The only problem is that the medium is poorly sampled grand piano, but with nine different pianos was what to do.
by against the pads and other sounds a little space is really not terrible, but I doubt that you bought the mp4 for this.


I use it since yesterday, and after a repeat when I took for Matthew Bellamy (you put your hands and it plays by itself), I do not regret this purchase. we played hold the line and frankly ... ca tore the "female cat" of the grandmother.
Higher-keyboards of the same price (RD-300SX, the korg, fatard, yamaha ...), on the sounds and feel there's no photo.
-Bought 1296 euros honest. still remember to invest in a flight case and a solid stand.
To avoid the same for a classical repertoire, for that is better from a touch of wood, but now we must leave at least 2500 euros, so ...
-And the greater the mouth
