    Already explained in previous reviews the various

    UTILIZATION

    The feel is very nice. Found almost touch of an acoustic piano.
    The configuration is that of many piano. Logical use relatively simple.

    SOUNDS

    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.

    OVERALL OPINION

    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!

    Hi, I have the MP8.

    UTILIZATION

    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 !!!).
    If we win the 10kg weight of the BTE and believe me a account ...

    SOUNDS

    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.

    OVERALL OPINION

    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.

    Most:
    - Quality manufacturing / finishing (mp4/mp5/mp8)
    - Excellent qualitprix (mp4/mp5/mp8)
    - Sound Bank last level (mp5/mp8)
    - Quality remarkable touch (mp4/mp5/mp8)

    the -:
    - Weight of lphantesque mp8 (+ rack mandatory ...)
    - Quality of the cable jack and the pedals sustain / mute unworthy of all (replaced by the Emergency Neutrik ...)

    UTILIZATION

    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.

    The general configuration is simple?

    Ergonomics incredibly simple. Everything is really designed for high-speed access to the stage. It happen man

    The selection of MIDI channels, patches is easy?

    I began to MIDI, and there is also very easy to use

    The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

    yes

    SOUNDS

    The piano sounds are incredible (especially the Grand Concert). The other sounds are good and usable. It is possible to customize them.

    Are they realistic?
    The effects are they effective and appropriate?
    The expression is good? (Response to velocity, aftertouch)?
    What are the sounds you prefer, you hate? ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    For how long have you been using it?
    What thing do you like most/least about it?
    Did you try many other models before getting this one?

    Roland FP-7, RD-700-GX, Kawai MP-8

    What is your opinion about the value for the price?

    Very good, this keyboard is the same as the MP8 apart wooden buttons and touch is no less exceptional. For me the best quality / price. It widely surpasses all competitors in this price range

    Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

    Absolutely, even if it meant adding a little extra!
