GX-2 ATX Grand Piano
A piano that is unmistakably an acoustic, yet can be played regardless of the time or place
through the privacy of headphones – this is the serene beauty of AnyTimeX.
Enjoy the superb, ultra-responsive touch of a Kawai grand piano, with the discretion and
convenience of a digital instrument. Whenever, wherever – AnyTimeX makes it possible.
Advanced grand piano control: Kawai IHSS technology
The amount of volume produced by each note of an acoustic piano is directly proportional to the
velocity at which hammers strike the strings. Gentle key presses translate as slow hammer movements, resulting in a soft, pianissimo tone, while faster, more powerful hammer movements that strike the strings with greater force, produce a louder, fortissimo sound.
AnyTimeX instruments reproduce this exact behaviour, integrating sensors within the fine workings of the piano action to detect the precise movements of each hammer. This Integrated Hammer Sensing System (IHSS) represents the subtitles of musical expression more accurately than key-based sensing techniques, allowing musicians to enjoy the delicate nuances of acoustic piano touch, regardless of lifestyle or environmental constraints.
Peerless EX Concert soundWith silent playing mode activated, the AnyTimeX system utilises the sound of Kawai’s peerless EX concert grand piano, featuring the latest 88-key, stereo sampling techniques and advanced damper and string resonances. Moreover, AnyTimeX instruments employ Kawai’s proprietary Ultra Progressive Harmonic Imaging sound technology to ensure smooth tonal transitions across the keyboard and throughout the entire dynamic range.
Soundboard Speaker (ATX-f model)The latest ATX-f models even allow AnyTimeX digital features to be enjoyed without headphones. This unique system channels sound energy back onto the piano’s wooden soundboard, and even allows the volume of the instrument to be adjusted for quieter, more discreet, practice sessions.
Concealed control panelAnyTimeX instruments feature an innovative slideout control panel, discretely placed below the piano keybed. A gentle push and the control panel appears, revealing an LCD display and array of buttons, providing convenient access to a selection of high-quality instruments sounds, an adjustable metronome, a 9 song recorder, and various other useful functions without devaluing the piano’s traditional acoustic appearance.
