experience of any keyboard on the market. The MP11SE's 88-note Grand Feel wooden-key weighted action feels like the real deal; Ivory Touch key surfaces and the included
Triple Pedal Assembly with half-damper support complete the illusion. And the onboard Harmonic Imaging XL sounds are simply stunning. With its gorgeous Shigeru Kawai SK-EX,
SK-5, and Kawai EX concert grand pianos, vibey vintage EPs with amp simulations, shimmery reverb and effects, and more. The MP11SE's pitch and mod wheels, song recorder,
expression pedal jack, pro connectivity, and make it a superb master controller also for our studi. Incredible feel, sound, and versatility proves we can really have it
all with the Kawai MP11SE. Clients LOVE this keyboard.

Hammond SK2 - The authentic sound of the original Hammond B2 has never sounded so good.The Hammond Sk2 is the Sk1 plus a second 61-note keyboard for added convenience-you
may play the Sk2 as a two-manual organ, or assign the Drawbar/Extra Voice divisions to your choice of keyboard. It has all the vibe of the vintage B-3 into a trim 35-pound package.
Much like its little brother, it gives you a wide series of other voices, like Acoustic and Electric Pianos, Clav, Vintage Combo Organs, Vintage String Synthesizer, Accordions,
Pipe Organ, and many more. The Sk2 isn't a watered-down, light version of a Hammond, either. All the classic features that make a Hammond are included: real mechanical drawbars,
Waterfall keyboard, touch-response percussion, Chorus Vibrato, and a new-generation Digital Leslie that gives the big speaker a run for the money. Your eyes will see an easily
portable two-tiered organ, but close your ears will hear, and your fingers will feel a B-3.

Yamaha DX7S - The most famous, and widely produced of the DX synths. 6 operators, one timbre and no effects.When you think of 80s music, some of the sounds that come to
mind are sparkly electric pianos, metallic basses and cheesy orchestral elements. Many of these sounds came from one synthesizer: the Yamaha DX7. It was released in 1983, and
was the first digital synthesizer to have an impact on popular music. Along with its eventual spiritual successors, the Roland D-50 and Korg M1, the DX7 marked a move away
from warm analog sounds, to complex digital sounds. For a producer, the DX7 meant more sonic options in one box, and more versatility in a recording studio. The DX7S is one of
THE most sought-after keyboards for any studio and beat creation professional. When you hear the sounds of Modanna's Papa Don't Preach, you are hearing the sounds of the DX7S.
To hear the beautiful, rich, and very memerable sounds and powerful options of the DX7S can be heard here in this video below.
Hammond SK2 - The SQ-80 is basically a reved-up ESQ-1 with a total of 75 waveforms, a 61-note keyboard with velocity & aftertouch, floppy disk drive for storing patches and sequences, and an
enhanced sequencer. Great for organs, analog-type sounds, pads and sound effects. Like the classic ESQ-1, the SQ-80 functions in providing analog-type 4-pole lowpass filtering and editing of digital
waveforms. Each voice can combine up to 3 of the 75 waveforms. These waveforms include multi-sampled transient attack waves such as violin bow, plectrum picks, mallet, hammer, breath attacks and percussive
sounds. There are also 5 sampled drum sets. Three LFOs are onboard for some pretty wild modulation of the sounds you create or edit. Complete MIDI implementation makes the SQ-80 great for any studio or live use too.
To hear the bold layered sounds of the SQ80, you only need to watch this video.
