The feel is very nice. Found almost touch of an acoustic piano.
The configuration is that of many piano. Logical use relatively simple.
The sound is THE highlight of this exceptional piano. Found a sound, smooth, coated, almost sensual. I blamed the other brands was often the color "metallic" that emerged. And the expression is simply perfect!
Available effects like reverb, the cutoff, attack, among other I think are sufficient. EQ is also helpful.
On other "patches", there are many sounds found in other brands and I admit that the possibility of changing to an organ or instrumental ensemble is quite enjoyable.
It's been a five year that I use and I am in love as soon as the first day I tried it! The sound is so sweet and full of delicacy that does not diminish his character!
I use both on stage and in the recording and it is always a pleasure!
For me by far the best digital piano on the market!

The MP5 is the exact same instrument, but not touch with touches wood but standard. The keyboard is nonetheless excellent, it is even softer to the touch (they force the dose to mp8 I think !!!).

The big news of the SERIES (mp5/mp8) is the sound bank that begins be finally correct.
The piano is good, but still not at roland.
The electric pianos (ep / dyno ...) are really good trs.
The bass really enjoyable and usable.
Tablecloths / strings do more than dpanner.
The rest of the bank is correct without reaching the level of workstations roland / yamaha / korg.
It will be understood the goal is to have an excellent piano scne (home or work).
The USB port allows you to recognize the kawa directly as master keyboard in your favorite squenceur.

The touch keyboard is it nice? Should your use?
Excellent touch, subtle and light. Most high-end keyboards (RD-700 GX or MP8) have a very heavy touch that can be unpleasant in the long run, I find that the MP5 better. Note that I am a pianist for 18 years, and it's a real pleasure to play on.
