„ CN25 Feature Highlights
Responsive Hammer III weighted-key action, with Ivory Touch key surfaces and Let-off simulation
The new Responsive Hammer III (RHIII) action recreates the distinctive touch of an acoustic grand piano, with its realistic
movement and accurate 3-sensor technology providing a smooth, natural, and highly responsive piano playing
experience. The weight of the keyboard is appropriately graded to mirror the heavier bass hammers and lighter treble
hammers of an acoustic piano, while structural reinforcements within the action assembly ensure greater stability during
fortissimo and staccato passages.
The CN25 digital piano also features Kawai’s Ivory Touch key surfaces that gently absorb finger moisture to assist the
player’s performance, while, let-off simulation recreates the subtle ‘notch’ sensation felt when softly playing the keys of
a grand piano, satisfying the expectations of the most discerning pianists.
Progressive Harmonic Imaging (PHI) with 88-key piano sampling
The CN25 digital piano captures the beautiful sound of Kawai’s highly acclaimed hand-built concert grand piano, with
all 88 keys of this exceptional instrument meticulously recorded, analysed and faithfully reproduced using proprietary
Progressive Harmonic Imaging™ technology. This unique process accurately recreates the broad dynamic range of the
original grand piano, affording pianists an extraordinary level of expressiveness ranging from the softest pianissimo to
the strongest, boldest fortissimo.
Additional modelling techniques and effects, such as reverb and damper resonance are also applied, delivering a
selection of vibrant piano tones with breathtaking realism and authenticity.
Internal Song recorder, Built-in Lesson Function
The CN25 digital piano features a three song recorder, allowing performances to be recorded to internal memory and
played back at the touch of a button.
In addition, the convenient lesson feature allows aspiring pianists to learn the piano using a built-in collection of etudes
from Czerny and Burgmüller, or songs from the popular Alfred course books. The left and right hand parts for each piece
can be practiced separately, while adjusting the tempo allows more difficult passages to be perfected.

Using the Pedals
As with a grand piano, the CN25 digital piano features three pedals: sustain, sostenuto, and soft.
„ Sustain pedal (right pedal)
Depressing this pedal sustains the sound after one’s hands
have been lifted from the keyboard - greatly enriching the
piano sound, while also assisting smooth ‘legato’ passages.
The sustain pedal is capable of responding to half pedaling.
Soft pedal
Sostenuto pedal
„ Soft pedal (left pedal)
„ Sostenuto pedal (centre pedal)
Depressing this pedal softens the sound, reducing its volume.
Depressing this pedal after playing the keyboard and before
releasing the keys, sustains the sound of only those notes that
have been played. Any keys that are subsequently played after
the sostenuto pedal is depressed will not be sustained.
When the Jazz Organ sound is selected, the soft pedal is also
used to alternate the speed of the rotary speaker simulation
between ‘Slow’ and ‘Fast’ effect modes.
„ Pedal support bolt
If the pedal support bolt does not make contact with the floor,
the pedal board may become damaged. Ensure that this bolt is
fully extended and supports the pedals firmly.
When moving the instrument, always adjust or
remove the pedal support bolt, then readjust
when the instrument is in its new position.
„ Caring for the pedals
If the surface of the pedals becomes dirty, clean the pedals using a dry dish-washing sponge.
Do not attempt to clean the pedals using rust-removing solvents, abrasives or files.
„ Grand Feel pedal system
The CN25 digital piano features the new Grand Feel pedal system, which replicates the sustain, soft, and sostenuto pedal
weighting of Kawai’s EX Concert Grand piano.

Dual Mode
The Dual Mode function allows two sounds to be layered together, creating a more complex sound.
For example, a piano sound layered with strings, or an electric piano combined with a harpsichord etc.

Press and hold the SOUND SELECT button, then press two of the lowest 8 white keys or 11 black keys simultaneously.

These songs are also relatively easy to play, especially if they are familiar to the player. To perform them, tap out the rhythm of the
melody on any key of the keyboard. Singing along as the rhythm is tapped can be helpful.
For example, when playing the piece ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star’, the rhythm of the melody should be played.
* When performing fast Concert Magic songs, it may be easier to press different keys with two alternating fingers in order to achieve greater speed.

1 Touch
As with an acoustic piano, the CN25 digital piano produces a louder sound when the keys are struck with
force, and a softer sound when the keys are played gently. The volume and tonal character change in relation
to the strength and speed of playing - on a digital piano this system is referred to as ‘touch sensitivity’.
The Touch setting allows the touch sensitivity of the keyboard to be conveniently adjusted. There are four
different preset touch settings available.
„ Touch type
Settings

Press and hold the SOUND SELECT button, then press the “Voicing” key, and finally press the key assigned to the desired voicing
type.
3 Damper Resonance
Depressing the sustain pedal of an acoustic piano raises all dampers, allowing the strings to vibrate freely.
When a note or chord is played on the piano with the sustain pedal depressed, not only will the strings of
the notes played vibrate, but also the strings of other notes, vibrating in sympathetic resonance.
The CN25 digital piano recreates this phenomenon, with the Damper Resonance setting allowing the
volume of this resonance to be changed.
* This setting will affect acoustic piano sounds only.
Press and hold the SOUND SELECT button, then press the “Damper Resonance” key, and finally press the key assigned to the
desired value.
The Damper Resonance value is changed within the range of Off, 1 - 3, with higher values resulting in a louder effect.

4 Damper Noise
When the damper pedal of an acoustic piano is pressed and released, it is often possible to hear the sound
of the damper head touching and releasing the strings.
The CN25 digital piano reproduces this sound, with the Damper Noise setting allowing the volume of this
sound to be changed.
* This setting will affect acoustic piano sounds only.
„ Changing the Damper Noise value (Please refer to page 12 - 13 Operation Guide SOUND.)
Press and hold the SOUND SELECT button, then press the “Damper Noise” key, and finally press the key assigned to the desired value.
The Damper Noise value is changed within the range of Off, 1 - 3, with higher values resulting in a louder effect.
5 String Resonance
String Resonance refers to a phenomenon that exists in acoustic pianos whereby the strings of held notes
resonate ‘sympathetically’ with other notes of the same harmonic series.
The CN25 digital piano recreates this phenomenon, with the String Resonance setting allowing the volume
of this resonance to be changed.
* This setting will affect acoustic piano sounds only.
„ Demonstrating String Resonance
To experience the string resonance phenomenon, gently hold down the ‘C’ key as shown in the illustration below, then press any
of the keys marked with a z symbol. In addition to the sound of each note played, it should also be possible to hear the strings
of the first ‘C’ key resonating ‘sympathetically’, thus demonstrating String Resonance.

6 Key-off Effect
When playing an acoustic piano – particularly in the bass region of the keyboard – if a key is played with
force and released quickly, it is often possible to hear the faint sound of the damper touching the strings
immediately before the vibrations are stopped.
In addition, the speed at which keys are lifted will also affect the character of the sound. For example, when
lifting the keys quickly (e.g. staccato playing) the ‘release’ portion of the sound will be noticeably shorter
than when lifting the keys slowly (e.g. legato playing).
The CN25 digital piano reproduces both characteristics, with the Key-off Effect setting allowing the volume
of the key-off sound to be changed, and the key-off release speed detection to be turned on or off.
* This setting will affect acoustic piano and Classic E.Piano sounds.
„ Changing the Key-off Effect value (Please refer to page 12 - 13 Operation Guide SOUND.)
Press and hold the SOUND SELECT button, then press the “Key-off Effect” key, and finally press the key assigned to the desired value.
The Key-off Effect value is changed within the range of Off, 1 - 3, with higher values resulting in a louder effect.
7 Fall-back Noise
When playing an acoustic piano, it is often possible to hear the faint sound of the keyboard action returning
(i.e. ‘falling back’) to the neutral position after a key is released.
The CN25 digital piano reproduces this sound, with the Fall-back Noise setting allowing the volume of this
sound to be changed.
* This setting will affect acoustic piano and harpsichord sounds.
„ Changing the Fall-back Noise value (Please refer to page 12 - 13 Operation Guide SOUND.)
8 Stretch Tuning
Stretch tuning is a piano-specific tuning method in which the tuning for the lower notes is slightly lower and
the tuning for the higher notes is slightly higher than the settings made in the Equal temperament.
* This setting will affect acoustic piano sounds only.
„ Changing the Stretch Tuning on/off (Please refer to page 12 - 13 Operation Guide SOUND.)

Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
Page no.
The instrument does not turn on.
Check that the power cable is firmly attached to the instrument,
and connected to an AC outlet.
p. 11
The instrument turns itself off
after a period of inactivity.
Check that the ‘Auto Power Off’ function is not enabled.
p. 40
Check that the MASTER VOLUME slider is not set to the lowest
position.
p. 11
Check that a pair of headphones (or headphone adaptor plug) are
not connected to the PHONES jack.
p. 11
The instrument is turned on,
however no sound is produced
when the keys are played.
Sound
Check that Local Control is enabled in the MIDI Settings menu.
The sound distorts when playing
at very loud volume levels.
Appendix
42
p. 11
The CN25 digital piano attempts to reproduce the rich variety of
tones created by an acoustic grand piano as accurately as possible.
This includes damper resonances and other subtle effects that
contribute to the overall piano playing experience.
While these additional effects are intended to enhance the realism
of the instrument, it is possible to reduce their prominence, or
disable them altogether using the sound settings.
p. 32
p. 34 - 37
The pedals are unreliable or do
not function at all.
Check that the pedal cable is firmly connected to the instrument.
p. 48
When depressing a pedal, the
pedal board flexes and is not
firm.
Check that the pedal support bolt is fully extended.
p. 11
The top 18 notes of the
keyboard sustain for longer than
neighbouring notes, even when
the damper pedal is not pressed.
This is the correct behaviour, and intended to reproduce the
undamped notes (typically the top two octaves) of an acoustic
grand piano.
USB (MIDI)
—
The instrument is connected to
the computer using a USB cable,
however the software does not
respond to key presses.
Check that a USB MIDI driver is installed on the computer.
p. 41
Check that ‘USB Audio Device’ or ‘KAWAI USB MIDI’ is selected in
the software’s input/output device settings.
p. 41
Keyboard
Pedals
The pitch or sound quality with a
specific piano timbre is odd.
Check that the MASTER VOLUME slider is set to an appropriate
level, reducing the volume if excessive distortion is heard.
