  • Stage pianos that accept sound input

    I use a Korg SP250 for playing out. For practising at home I use an upright. For recording I use Pianoteq.

    I like the Korg for the fact that It's just one thing to carry and the action is fine now that it's broken in. But the piano sounds are only okay -- whereas the Pianoteq sounds are very good -- and I've occasionally thought: "Wouldn't it be nice if I could rig this so I can play through Pianoteq on a laptop and the sound would come out of the Korg's speakers."

    Anybody know of a stage piano that can take an external input to its built-in sound system? I have a weekly wallpaper gig where I don't use a PA and this would be a lovely feature.

    Check out Kawai ES series, at least the older ones (like ES4) have that feature. And a very nice weighted action too.

      That's very good news. A little research showed that all the ES# series (ES4, ES5 etc) have this feature. The ES110, though, does not. I've heard lots of good things about the Kawai ES pianos, so I'll start looking into the used market for them.
