Instrument manufacturer Alesis has announces the release of the Cadenza, an 88-key hammer-action digital piano offering a genuine piano feel plus a USB connection to iPad, Mac or PC.
The Cadenza electric piano offers the sounds, features and performance feel that musicians need to bring their ideas to life. With 88 hammer-action keys, the piano equips players with a full range of musical expression, enabling them to play any song, from classical to contemporary.
The digital piano offers a variety of timeless piano tones including Grand, Upright, Electric, Strings and Organ. A split function can be used to divide the keyboard between sounds, and users can even layer different sounds to create stunning combinations.
The Cadenza includes a 1/8-inch stereo auxiliary input, allowing players to connect a CD or MP3 player and play along with their favourite songs. A MIDI input and output are also provided to control the Cadenza’s sound via a separate keyboard, or to use the Cadenza to control MIDI-compliant sound modules or instruments.
The piano’s USB MIDI jack allows for connection directly to a Mac or PC, so players can work with music software. Using the Apple iPad USB adapter, players can even connect the Cadenza to their iPad, iPad 2 or iPhone 4S and play using any CoreMIDI app.
Built-in stereo speakers and a compact, wood-grain frame make the Cadenza a perfect choice for those who want a digital piano that takes over a room, not with its size, but with its sound. Also included are output jacks for connecting to external speakers, plus a headphone output for silent practice at anytime.
