I use it in a progressive metal band that blends Magma, Tool, Messhugah, Neurosis.
The Cp30 has a very unique sound: Halfway between a clavinet and a Wurly, in my opinion.
Not too Rhodes.
It's an electronic piano, it's not warm and does not intend to compete with a piano.
It has its own sound.
It may be equipped with several sound banks, but the difference between them is not "flagrant." It's more like a variation of the same basic waveform.
Do note that it's pretty noisy: A noise suppressor is a must!
I plugged it into a JCM900 with lots of effects: wah, fuzz, delay, and I toggle between clean and distortion sound.
It's not easy to tame its sound, you need to try lots of combinations, but it has a very interesting personality!
It's the centerpiece of my set:
Besides it, I have a Korg DW8000 and soon a Nord electro...
Broadly speaking, the CP30 is a piano that won't go unnoticed!
- The pitch, decay and tremolo, which allow you to sculpt the sound and provide it a strong personality.
- Very powerful lows, an edge that allows it to find its place even in a saturated mix.
- A rock-solid build
- Dual/mono possibility
- Its price (about $400)
- A unique personality.
- A stiff keyboard: It's good to exercise the fingers, but you can feel that you are dealing with a real instrument
- Its weight, it's like a dead horse.
