The Cadenza blends the beauty of traditional sound with the excitement of modern features in one digital piano keyboard

Cumberland, R.I. (July 19, 2011) – Alesis,  the world’s leading manufacturer of professional audio equipment and  studio electronics, announces the Cadenza digital piano. Alesis will  exhibit the Cadenza at Booth #400 at the 2011 Summer NAMM show from July  21st- 23rd in Nashville, TN.

The Cadenza is an 88-key, hammer-action digital piano.  Musicians will appreciate its sound, feel and performance features that  they can use to bring their musical ideas to life. The Cadenza's 88  hammer-action keys equip players with a full range of musical  expression, enabling them to play any piano piece. Musicians will enjoy  the Cadenza’s eight, stereo instrument voices, including Grand, Upright,  Electric, Strings, Organ and more. Musicians can enjoy the Cadenza's  Split function, which divides the digital keyboard into two different sounds of the player’s choosing, such as left-hand  piano and right-hand strings. The included sustain pedal enables further  expression. Creative players can add chorus and reverb effects, and  fine-tune treble and bass controls. Experienced pianists can even  customize the Cadenza's touch sensitivity for the response that suits  their playing style.

Pianists can play  along with their favorite songs by connecting a CD or MP3 player through  the Cadenza's 1/8-inch stereo auxiliary input. A MIDI Input jack  enables playing the Cadenza's sounds using an external keyboard, and a  MIDI output jack empowers players to use the Cadenza's digital piano keyboard to perform with any MIDI-compliant sound module or instrument. Plus,  the Cadenza's USB MIDI jack connects directly to a Mac or PC so players  can work with virtually any music software on Mac and PC. And with  Apple’s USB adapter, players can even connect the Cadenza to their iPad  or iPad 2 and play using Core MIDI-compliant apps.

Built-in stereo  speakers and a compact, wood-grain frame make the Cadenza the perfect  choice for those who want a digital piano that takes over a room with  its sound – not its size. For completely silent practice at any hour,  players can plug in headphones and silence the speakers.

“The Cadenza  delivers an expressive, natural piano experience, silent practice, and  connection to Mac, PC and iPad.” said Dan Radin, Alesis Product Manager.  “At a fraction of the size, weight or cost of traditional pianos, the  Cadenza is a wonderful choice for every home.”

The Cadenza will be available from musical instrument and pro audio retailers in Q3 2011.
