Technics P50 Demo
These are the built-in factory demos on the Technics sx-P50 Piano.
As I didn’t have the correct cables to record the P50 piano directly into the computer, I sent the output from the piano into Technics KN7000 and then recorded the results using the USB cable and Technics Audio Recorder. This produces WAV files. From there I opened in Audacity and converted to MP3 files in order to give a reasonable file size on the website and good compatibility for browsers.
Technics P50: Graded Hammer Action
On a grand piano the key touch is heavier for low notes and lighter for high notes, changing in four steps from one end of the keyboard to the other. This change occurs naturally as a result of the thickness of the strings, the size of the hammers, and the presence or absence of a damper.
Technics’ Natural Response Action Feels Like You’re Playing a Concert Grand
Technics Natural Response Action replicates this progression by using four sets of graded hammers that are linked to the appropriate registers of a grand piano to provide a substantial, authentic response. Furthermore, the black keys feature a matte finish, reminiscent of the key texture on a concert grand.
The Natural Response Action provides the tactile “release” in the middle of a keystroke that is characteristic of grand piano keys.
