Product Description

A high quality controller with a remarkable feel, look and build! The ultimate choice for virtual pianists, the VPC1 packages Kawai's superb RM3 Grand II wooden-key keyboard action into a professional MIDI controller. As acoustic piano makers, Kawai understands the importance of first-class touch. If you just want a superb action, some USB and MIDI connectors, and a beautifully designed, well-built cabinet, the VPC1 is for you!

There are no knobs to snap-off or faders getting in the way of your mouse - just a power switch, 88 real wooden keys, and an incredible concert grand playing experience. The graded-hammer action with counterbalancing, ivory touch, triple sensor detection and a 3-pedal assembly included, the VPC1 goes beyond what you think a controller keyboard is.

Great sound means nothing without control

The VPC1 is equipped with Kawai's RM3 Grand II action, featuring their trademark wooden keys and smooth, consistent movement. 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.

Flexible connectivity: USB + MIDI

Connecting the VPC1 to your PC or Mac requires just a single USB cable - that's all. The VPC1 can draw power from the computer's USB bus, reducing cable clutter by doing away with the need for an external AC adaptor.

While the VPC1 has been developed primarily for controlling software pianos, standard MIDI jacks are also provided for connecting to hardware sound sources. The VPC1 can breathe life into your old synth or expander module that you just can't part. It's even possible to control separate sound sources simultaneously, adjusting IN/OUT routing for USB and standard MIDI with the VPC Editor software.

Take Control: Grand Piano Pedals

Take full advantage of your virtual piano's unlooped sustain and stunning modeled resonances with the VPC1's included grand piano pedal controller. This sturdily-built unit supports half-damping, and is pre-configured to send the correct CC messages for damper, soft, and sostenuto events. One solid unit, three weighted pedals, and a great piano playing experience.

Clutter-free, Classic Grand Design

With its raised fall-board and curved wooden side arms, the VPC1 adopts a classic, grand piano-like appearance that inspires you to sit down and play. The design is simple, unobtrusive, yet smart and professional. There are no wheels, knobs, or faders bidding for your attention. The VPC1 has been developed for one thing and one thing only: to deliver the finest virtual piano playing experience.

Premium build-quality is widely considered a Kawai hallmark, with their popular MP stage pianos earning a reputation for their sturdy construction. Likewise, the VPC1's chassis is engineered from aluminum, with a reinforced keyboard base providing extra stability when laying down the big chords. And because the VPC1's wide top surface is completely clutter-free, it makes an excellent platform for your laptop, mouse, or favorite semi-weighted board.

"Kawai VPC 1 controller review"
Overall: Closest thing to the real deal I have played yet. I had the MP 9000 previously so I knew what I might expect and was not disappointed in spades.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Wicked Awesome"
Overall: I was skeptical, but now I am a believer. Beautifully crafted, wonderful touch. Works beautifully with Ivory II. Great addition to my home studio. Maybe I would take it out if I were 20 years younger, but it weighs over 60 lbs.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
