Korg D1 Digital Stage Piano, 88-Key

Take weighted hammer action with you anywhere. The Korg D1 stage piano's graded action and detailed sound modeling create an authentic playing experience.

The Korg D1 Digital Stage Piano features a real weighted hammer action 3 (RH3) keybed that reproduces the touch of a grand piano, where the low notes are heavier and the action becomes lighter as you play toward the higher notes. With this keybed's natural-feeling touch and weight, you'll want to keep playing it forever.

A compact body that you can take anywhere: The chassis construction has been rethought with a new structure and design that slims the body to a depth of approximately 26 cm* (10.24"), the minimum depth that still allows enjoyable playing. Even though the D1 features a full-fledged weighted keybed, it's highly mobile, and can be carried anywhere in its dedicated SC-D1 soft case (sold separately). The stylish ST-SV1 stand (sold separately) completes a great-looking setup on stage or in your room.

Thirty high-quality sounds: The D1 contains a total of 30 richly expressive sounds which include not only a variety of piano sounds to cover genres such as classical, jazz, and pop, but also electric piano, organ, and clavi sounds that will be useful on stage, and even sounds such as vibraphone, acoustic guitar, and strings.

Rich piano sounds geared for realism: In order to achieve a playing feel that's amazingly close to that of an acoustic piano, the sound switches between four piano samples depending on the dynamics of your performance. From a delicate touch to dynamic fortissimo, the sound responds realistically to your playing. The overall read more piano sound is enjoyable to play and delivers an authentic experience.

Serious electric piano sounds: The electric piano sounds reproduce not only the tonal differences in response to your playing touch but also the key-off noise. Six variations are built in, covering sounds often used in the popular music of the '60s and '70s as well as tones that are treasured in soul music.

Organ sounds: Six versatile sounds are provided, ranging from sounds used in rock or jazz to solemn pipe organ tones.

Cutting-edge technology faithfully reproduces the resonances of a grand piano
The D1 features functionality that reproduces the sound of a grand piano, enabling natural-sounding and great-feeling performances.

Damper resonance: The Concert Piano, Grand Piano and Jazz Piano sounds reproduce damper resonance, realistically simulating the spacious resonance produced by the sympathetic vibration of the strings when you hold down the damper pedal of an acoustic piano.

Key-off simulation: The D1 also simulates the decay of the sound when you take your finger off a key and the way in which your playing technique affects the string resonance, responding to staccato or legato in a natural way that further enhances the expressiveness of your performance.

Convenient functions that you expect from a digital piano: The metronome can be turned on/off at a touch. Layer mode lets you layer two sounds simply by pressing two sound buttons simultaneously, for example letting you combine strings or vibraphone with the piano sound that you're playing. The touch control function lets you choose from five settings (light, standard, heavy, stable, fixed) to specify how the sound responds to your playing dynamics, allowing you to enjoy performing with the response of your choice. Three high-quality effects are also built-in: brilliance, reverb, and chorus. The optimal effect for each internal sound is already specified as a preset, so you can simply select a sound and focus on playing it with the best possible tone.

Standard-sized LINE OUT jacks, and also MIDI IN/OUT connectors: The D1 provides the external connection jacks that you'll need on stage. The standard-sized LINE OUT jacks can be connected directly to amplified speakers or to recording equipment. MIDI IN/OUT connectors are also provided. You can connect these via a MIDI interface to your computer, and use the D1 as a MIDI keyboard or as a piano sound module.

"Perfect for my rig."
Overall: 9 out of 10 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Perfect stage piano for what I need in my rig. Keys in a classic rock, blues, classic pop band a pretty varied. I run a Prophet, Mojo, and Vintage DX7 so I don't need a workstation. I need a good sounding piano/EP. This fills that role really well. The key bed on this is the best by far you can get under $1K. Probably even more. If you want it to feel like a real piano but be easy to carry and set up this is a good option. I will say it was the worse factory packaging I've ever experienced. Korg needs to step that game up. Board was loose in the box with styrofoam pieces broken up all over the inside. Luckily the board was undamaged.
