Kurzweil CUP-2 Digital Piano

English
December 1, 2010 — The CUP-2 “Compact Upright” is the “flagship” to Kurzweil’s growing family of home digital pianos. The CUP-2 features 88 onboard sounds from the “acclaimed” PC3 series Pro keyboard line. Included are 10 world-class pianos including the famous Kurzweil “Triple Strike” Grand Piano. The CUP-2 offers 20 celebrated vintage electric pianos and organs, sampled and modeled with amazing realism using Kurzweil’s proprietary chip technology. From rich strings, choirs and orchestral voices, to realistic guitars, bass & drums, the CUP-2 now brings professional studio sound quality into your home.

Built into the CUP-2 are 78 interactive rhythm patterns in a variety of styles to choose from. A dedicated Grand Piano button and an “easy play” sequencer allow you to record any sound with rhythm, and save it to one of 8 user song presets. Your sounds can be customized with 2 sound layering, effects, transpose and split point and stored to one of 3 “Favorite” presets for a “one button” recall at any time.

For those demanding the best in acoustic piano action, the CUP-2 incorporates an 88-note, “wood embedded” graded hammer key action, heavier in the lower end of the keyboard to progressively lighter in the upper end. The double dipped full-body solid black keys have a pleasing tactile surface. This real wood action perfectly balances response and momentum for inspiringly “true” piano action. Complimenting the action is a slow close fallboard, which doubles as a music rack.

Everyone will marvel at the CUP-2‘s modern streamlined cabinet. Beautifully designed in Ebony Polish and standing at 42” high, the CUP-2 leaves a very small footprint in any room but fills any size space with spectacular concert hall sound. With it’s specially designed 140 watt bi-amped 4 speaker system, the CUP-2 faithfully reproduces the sound of a full sized concert grand piano for convincing classical performances but also ideal for popular music. Add to this Kurzweil’s design and ingenuity and the stage is set for something remarkable.
