Kawai VPC1

A new standard in performance & expression

The professional MIDI controller developed for virtual piano players,featuring Kawai’s celebrated wooden-key keyboard action technology.

Kawai VPC1

A Keyboard Action Designed with a Pianist’s Touch in Mind.

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 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 favorite virtual pianos to finally feel as good as they sound.
