Kawai has recently announced the VPC1, a brand new piano-oriented MIDI controller developed especially for use with virtual piano software.

This professional controller is equipped with Kawai's sophisticated wooden-key keyboard action, featuring grade-weighted hammers, ivory-like key surfaces, and let-off simulation. In addition, the VPC1 also includes a triple pedal unit, detachable music rest, and editor software.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the VPC1 features a specially prepared touch curve for Ivory II users, which has been tested and approved by the Synthogy team.

"The Ivory name is very well respected among professional composers and musicians, and strongly supported by leading figures such as Jordan Rudess - one of my favourite artists.

We're delighted to continue our collaboration with Synthogy, and believe that the combination of the VPC1 with Ivory delivers an excellent virtual piano playing experience."
- Kohtaro Irimura, VPC1 project leader, Kawai

Three VPC1s were recently featured at the ILIO/Synthogy booth at 2013 Winter NAMM and drew rave reviews from guest artists and show visitors alike.

The VPC1 is expected to start shipping early March.
