Kawai VPC1 Virtual Piano Controller

The Professional MIDI controller that redefines the virtual piano playing experience.

Kawai proudly introduces the VPC1, featuring unparalleled keyboard action realism, impressive hardware/software flexibility, stunning piano-like design, and strong backing from the industry’s leading developers. The VPC1 is a professional MIDI keyboard controller developed especially for use with virtual piano software. This unique product – the first of its kind from any musical instrument manufacturer – draws upon Kawai’s 85 years of knowledge and experience crafting the world’s finest acoustic and digital pianos, to deliver the ultimate virtual piano experience for the home, studio, and stage.

Main Features:

  • Ultra-realistic ‘RM3 Grand II’ wooden-key keyboard action
  • Triple-pedal accessory (included)
  • USB and standard MIDI IN/OUT connectivity
  • Built-in ‘approved touch curve’ settings for popular virtual piano packages
  • VPC Editor software
  • attractive piano-like chassis design, detachable music rest
  • High-quality aluminium, steel, and wood construction

At the heart for the VPC1 is Kawai’s latest ‘RM3 Grand II’ wooden-key keyboard action, which combines realistic materials, motion, and mechanism to recreate the exceptional touch of the finest concert grand pianos.

All eighty-eight of the VPC1’s keys are crafted from long pieces of wood, with finely textured ivory-like surfaces applied to absorb moisture and assist playing control. Aside from these authentic materials, the class-leading VPC1 keyboard action boasts a number of additional acoustic piano-like characteristics, such as naturally smooth ‘seesaw’ key movement, staggered balance pins for black and white keys, grade-weighted hammers, bass key counter-weights, and let-off simulation. The ‘RM3 Grand II’ keyboard action also boasts a new triple-sensor key detection system, improving repetition speed and responsiveness, and allowing a greater range of expressive control from staccato to legato playing.

Complementing the VPC1’s ultra-realistic ‘RM3 Grand II’ keyboard action is the included F-30 triple pedal accessory. This sturdily-built unit recreates the functionality of the damper, sostenuto, and soft pedals of a grand piano, allowing discerning musicians to take full advantage of the unlooped sustain and stunning modelled resonances found in modern virtual piano packages.

The VPC1 connects to a Mac or PC using a single USB cable, drawing its power directly from the computer, and doing away with unnecessary power cables. Standard MIDI IN/OUT connectors are also provided, allowing the VPC1’s outstanding keyboard action to control hardware MIDI devices such as sound modules, workstations, or micro synths. It is even possible to combine both USB and standard MIDI communication, controlling software and hardware instruments simultaneously from the same keyboard.

Most MIDI keyboard controllers require a degree of customisation in order to perform effectively with different virtual piano packages. This typically takes the form of manual ‘touch curve’ adjustments and a considerable amount of trial and error.

However, the VPC1 has been developed to offer a seamless ‘connection’ between the piano keyboard and software sound ‘out of the box’, with Kawai partnering with leading virtual piano developers to establish the ‘Approved Touch Curve’ program. Under this initiative, Kawai’s experienced keyboard engineering team prepare custom touch curves that are optimised for the ‘RM3 Grand II’ keyboard action, then tested by the developers using their own VPC1 before receiving final approval. The VPC1 ships with ‘Approved Touch Curves’ for Ivory, Pianoteq, Galaxy, and Alicia’s Keys packages.

While the VPC1 is designed to offer an unrivalled ‘out of the box’ experience, Kawai also understands that many virtual pianists and software musicians enjoy customising every aspect of their setup. For these users, the VPC1 includes a dedicated software editor, providing greater control over touch curves, key velocity offsets, and advanced MIDI routing. Individual setups can be created for different scenarios, stored to one of the VPC1’s five memory presets, and recalled without a computer using a simple key assignment.

Clearly, the VPC1 has been developed for one thing and one thing only: to deliver the finest virtual piano playing experience. This philosophy is reflected in the board’s design, with the VPC1 adopting a classic, smart, and professional appearance. There are no knobs, faders, or wheels to distract the virtual pianist from their performance, just a power button and eighty-eight smoothly finished black and white keys. And finally, serving as an elegant demonstration of Kawai’s rich acoustic piano heritage, the VPC1 also includes something that all other MIDI controllers overlook: an attachable music rest – allowing ambitious players to perform century-old masterpieces using the very latest software and hardware piano technology.

Kawai VPC1 – finally, a virtual piano controller from a real piano company.
