Why you need the Kawai VPC1 Virtual Piano Controller

The team at Kawai has developed a professional MIDI keyboard controller for virtual piano players. The VPC1 features Kawai's celebrated wooden-key keyboard action technology, giving your virtual with the expression and performance of a real one. There are no knobs, buttons, or displays featured on the VPC1, only 88 real wooden keys and a beautiful wide surface for your laptop, mouse, or synth. The keyboard action for serious pianists: RM3 Grand II delivers the most realistic playing experience ever found in a MIDI controller. The VPC1 connects to your PC or Mac using a single USB cable, or you can connect the VPC1 to your favorite synthesizer using MIDI connectivity, or better yet even control both simultaneously. For even more realism, you can take full advantage of your virtual piano's stunning resonances and unlooped sustain with the included Kawai F-30 triple pedal controller. Further customize the VPC1 with new touch curves, adjust individual key velocities, and setup preferred MIDI routing using the included VPC Editor software. This is the ultimate controller for the professional virtual piano player.Great sound means nothing without control.The keyboard action is the most important part of a controller. It doesn't matter how many gigabytes have been sampled, or how advanced the modelled resonances are - if the controller's action is sub-par, the virtual piano just won't feel satisfying to play.Fortunately, the VPC1 is equipped with Kawai's latest RM3 Grand II action, featuring our trademark wooden keys and smooth, consistent movement. Unlike other controllers, the VPC1 incorporates additional grand piano keyboard characteristics, such as graded hammer weighting, ivory-like key surfaces, let-off simulation, and bass note counterweights.These premium features combine to recreate the exceptional touch of a fine concert grand, allowing your favourite virtual pianos to finally feel as good as they sound.
