Kurzweil SP7 Grand

Kurzweil SP7 Grand top

Kurzweil unveiled their new SP7 Grand Stage Piano at NAMM 2022. The SP7 Grand is designed upon the new synthesis platform A.T.S.T. and marks a new era in Kurzweil technology. Built around the custom semiconductor, A.T.S.T. features high fidelity audio, streamlined sound programming and boasts near seamless velocity layer transitions.

256 voices of Polyphony allow serious polyphony to power your most demanding performances. The SP7 Grand offers 307 presets organized into 13 categories and features the German “D” 9 ft. Concert Grand derived from the K2700.

Fueled by the German 9″ grand piano samples found in our flagship K2700 workstation, the SP7 Grand A.T.S.T. engine provides significant advances in realism through support of higher resolution audio, smooth velocity transitions and a 2x oversampling filter.

The SP7 Grand pianos are further enhanced by the use of both string and pedal resonance modeling, envelope/velocity controlled key-off samples as well as half-damper pedaling, together delivering a heightened piano performance experience. A half-damper pedal sold separately.

21 effect algorithms are available to enhance the SP7 Grand’s rich sound, including reverb, BPM-synced delay, chorus, flange, compression, various distortion types, rotary speaker, tremolo, wah-wah and eq.
