Tone Name
Characteristics
This tone provides a bright and hard
grand piano sound. The volume and
timbre of this tone is quick to
MODERN
respond to different keyboard
pressures, and it has relatively strong
reverb. This tone is a good choice for
dynamic and lively performances.
This is a natural piano tone that
closely resembles the sound of an
acoustic grand piano. Though reverb
and other effects are kept to a
minimum, doing so enhances the
CLASSIC
impact of operating the piano pedals
(acoustic resonance), for musically
delicate expressions. This tone is a
good choice for lesson and practice
sessions.
