Kursweil SP5-8

26.02.2015
As Kursweil themselves say this piano is about 'the sound', but it is also has other interesting features going for it. As a stage instument it covers the piano well of course but the organ section is very good as well as the strings which are exceptional in my opinion.
The action is on the light side but is very quick making it ideal for playing organ parts as well as the weight needed for the piano.
I have a Roland NX700 which has the best action I've played in a DP but I like the quickness and feel of the Kursweil as it the perfect cross between a waterfall action and a weighted one and the build quality is exellent.
There is little available in the editing of the sounds but actually with this sound set
there is nothing I need to tweek. I've owned nearly every make of DP since they first appeared playing semi-pro, I no longer want to toat more than one keyboard to a gig so this one covers that well.
The sliders act like drawbars on some of the organ sounds and then as ways to enhance the treble and reverb etc. on some piano sounds.
There is of course the usual split and layer available, the interface is not as intuative as some but with a bit of study and help available on the Kursweil site
I was able to get to grips with it. I would not like to do this on the fly during a gig, as I would with the Roland ,but this is a third of the price and I think great value for the money.
So, to round up, I don't think that You will find a better board at this price range than the Kursweil at the present time and in their model range I think this si also the best value.

Very satisfied with SP5! Beautiful and thin design if you look him from a side, piano sounds perfect, it could be 1 or 2 or 3 kilograms lighter (we have to admit that!) but nevertheless, I am using him as a stage piano (using mostly piano, rhodes and strings) in combination with CX-3 on top.

And KB3 organ option is also very usefull!
