An e-piano that reproduces the differences in tone that arise from your playing dynamics and even simulates the sound of a key-off. Conjure electric piano sounds that are instantly recognizable from decades of great music.
Sounds appropriate for rock and jazz are provided, as well as the sublime sound of a real recorded pipe organ.
This instrument uses a Natural Weighted Hammer Action (NH) keyboard that reproduces the same feel that results from the hammers on a real acoustic piano, where the low register is heavier and the high register is lighter. The keybed is sensitive and responds to nuanced touch at the tip of your fingers.
The B2 provides connectors that allow using the instrument in conjunction with a variety of software and music hardware. This opens new possibilities for enjoying a digital piano that helps users create great music.
You can use a USB cable* to connect this instrument's USB port to your smartphone, tablet, or computer, and use the B2 as a MIDI keyboard to play an external sound module. Your performance on the B2 can be recorded as music data on your smartphone, and sound from your smartphone can be heard through the speakers of the B2.
*USB cable sold separately for connection to your PC, and a USB cable + Lightning-USB camera adaptor (both sold separately) for connection to your iPhone or iPad.
By connecting your smartphone's headphone jack or your music player, you can output your favorite music through the speakers of the B2 and enjoy playing along. Even when you're not playing the piano, you can use the B2 as a home speaker system for enjoying music.
The metronome can be turned on/off with one touch. There's a touch control function that gives you three levels of adjustment for how your playing dynamics affect the sound (light, normal, heavy), letting users perform with a response that suits their own style. Also provided are settings for two effects: reverb and chorus.
The removable music rest features a wide, spacious design. There's enough space to spread out several sheets of music, reducing your need to turn pages while performing. You can also place sheet music beside your iPad or other tablet.
The B2 is the perfect platform for piano practice and performance. For even more serious players, we recommend the B2SP which also packages a stand and a three-pedal unit as standard. Also available is the B2N, which is equipped with the same functionality as the B2 but features a lighter-touch keyboard. Select the model that fits your playing style. A full range of options such as the dedicated STB1 stand for the B2/B2N and the PU-2 three-pedal unit are also available.
