Welcome to the Concert Artist
1 Feature Highlights
Grand Feel II wooden-key action with Ebony & Ivory Touch key surfaces, counterweights, and ‘Let-Off’ mechanism
The CA97 and CA67 digital pianos utilise Kawai’s latest Grand Feel II wooden-key keyboard action, which draws upon over
85 years of acoustic piano craftsmanship to provide an exceptionally realistic playing experience.
Introduction
As with a grand piano, all eighty-eight black and white keys are crafted entirely from long pieces of wood, pivoting on a
central balance pin in a smooth, seesaw-like motion. The Grand Feel II keys are longer than any other digital piano keyboard
action, with the pivot point distance matching that of a Kawai grand piano. When the front of a key is pressed down, the
rear rises, throwing a hammer which plays the note. These metal hammers have been micro-engineered to optmise their
centre of gravity, and are graded in size and weight to replicate the heavier bass and lighter treble notes of an acoustic grand
piano. The forward and backward movements of each hammer are precisely measured using triple-sensor technology,
providing faster key repetition, improved responsiveness, and enhanced playing realism.
In addition to grade-weighted hammers, the Grand Feel II action also features counterweights placed within each key. As
with an acoustic piano, these finely balanced weights help to lighten the touch of the keyboard during pianissimo passages,
while adding a feel of greater substance when playing with force. The Grand Feel II keyboard action even reproduces the
subtle let-off sensation felt when playing the keys of a grand piano very softly, satisfying the expectations of even the most
discerning pianists.
Finally, the Grand Feel II keyboard action features Kawai’s Ebony & Ivory Touch key surfaces. These finely textured materials
gently absorb moisture to assist playing control, and possess a natural, matte finish that is smooth, but not slippery.
Shigeru Kawai SK-EX, SK-5, and Kawai EX instruments reproduced with Harmonic Imaging sound technology
The CA97 & CA67 digital pianos capture the magnificent tone of Kawai’s flagship Shigeru Kawai SK-EX full concert, and Shigeru
Kawai SK-5 medium-sized grand pianos. Widely regarded as the ‘premier pianos of Japan’, Shigeru Kawai instruments grace
the stages of concert halls and musical institutions throughout the world, and are prized for their exceptional tonal clarity.
In addition, the CA97 & CA67 also feature the distinctive sound of Kawai’s highly acclaimed EX concert grand piano, which
has frequently been selected by professional pianists in such prestigious events as the Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Rubinstein
international piano competitions, among others.
All three instruments have been carefully recorded, meticulously analysed, and faithfully reproduced with full 88-key
sampling using Harmonic Imaging™ sound technology. This unique process accurately recreates the broad dynamic range
of the original grand pianos, affording pianists an extraordinary level of expressiveness ranging from the softest pianissimo
to the strongest, boldest fortissimo.
Strong selection of additional instrument sounds
Supplementing the realistic acoustic piano voices, the CA97 & CA67 digital pianos also feature an excellent selection of
additional instrument sounds, ranging from electric pianos and drawbar and church organs, to strings, human choirs, and
even atmospheric synth-style pads, inviting musicians to add greater variety to their performances.
Furthermore, the Dual playing mode also allows two different sounds, such as grand piano and strings, to be layered
together, while the Split and Four Hands modes divide the keyboard into two independent sections. The volume balances
for each playing mode can also be adjusted quickly and easily using the real-time panel controls.
Virtual Technician adjustments to personalise the instrument’s character
The CA97 & CA67 digital pianos’ Virtual Technician feature allows various characteristics of the selected acoustic piano,
electric piano, or harpsichord sound to be shaped at the touch of a button, with settings to adjust voicing and regulation,
string, damper, and cabinet resonances, and subtle hammer, damper, and key release noises. It is even possible to adjust the
precise tuning and volume of individual notes, before storing one’s personalised instrument configuration to memory.
USB to Device functionality, with MP3/WAV file recording and playback
The CA97 & CA67 digital pianos are equipped with USB connectors that not only allow these instruments to be connected
to a computer for MIDI use, but also to load and save data to USB memory devices directly. This ‘USB to Device’ feature
allows instrument settings or recorded songs stored in internal memory to be saved to USB for posterity, or standard MIDI
files (SMF) downloaded from the internet to be conveniently played back without additional hardware.
10
USB memory devices can also be used to play back MP3 or WAV audio files, allowing musicians to learn the chords or
melody for a new piece, or to simply play along with their favourite songs. It is even possible to save performances as MP3
or WAV files for emailing to friends and family, listening to on the move, or for further editing using an audio workstation.
Wide range of connectivity options
The CA97 & CA67 digital pianos features a variety of connectivity options, with Line-level output jacks that allow the
instrument to be enjoyed in larger settings such as churches and schools. Standard MIDI and ‘USB to Host’ connectors
ensure flexibility when using computers and other electronic instruments, while the stereo Line-in connector provides a
convenient method of mixing in audio from a laptop, tablet, or other digital device.

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
Playing the Piano
Sustain 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 rotary speaker effect is selected, the soft pedal is also
used to alternate the speed of the rotary simulation between
‘Slow’ and ‘Fast’ effect modes.
Pedal support bolt
A pedal support bolt is attached at the base of the pedal board
to aid stability when the pedals are pushed.
Turn the bolt anti-clockwise until it makes contact with the floor
and supports the pedals firmly. If the pedal support bolt does
not make contact with the floor, the pedal board may become
damaged.
Pedal support bolt
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 CA97/C65 digital piano features the Grand Feel Pedal System, which replicates the sustain, soft, and sostenuto pedal weighting
of Kawai’s EX Concert Grand piano. It is also possible to adjust the sensitivity of the sustain/damper pedal, and the effectiveness of
the soft pedal using the ‘Half-Pedal Adjust’ and ‘Soft Pedal Depth’ settings.

1 Touch Curve
As with an acoustic piano, the CA97/CA67 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 velocity of playing – on a digital piano this system is referred to as ‘touch sensitivity’.
The Touch Curve setting allows the touch sensitivity of the keyboard to be conveniently adjusted. There are six
different preset touch curve settings available, with an additional ‘User’ setting allowing performers to customise
the instrument’s keyboard responsiveness to suit their individual playing style.
The default ‘Normal’ setting is designed to accurately recreate the touch of a Kawai concert grand piano. However,
if the keyboard feels too light, or fortissimo playing is achieved too easily, it may be desirable to select a heavier
touch curve. Alternatively, if the keyboard feels too heavy, or fortissimo playing is too difficult to achieve, it may be
desirable to select a lighter touch curve.
* This Virtual Technician setting will affect all sounds.
Touch Curve types
Touch Curve
Description
Light +
Requires less striking force to achieve a forte note. For players with a very delicate touch.
A louder volume is produced even when playing with a soft touch. For those still developing finger strength.

2 Voicing
On an acoustic piano, the shape, density, and texture of the hammers all influence on the tonal character of the
instrument’s sound. Technicians utilise a variety of tools such as needles, files, and brushes to manipulate these
hammer felts, with the ultimate goal of achieving a balanced tonal character across the keyboard.
The Voicing setting recreates various hammer properties, allowing the overall tonal character of the CA97/CA67
digital piano to be adjusted. There are six different preset voicing settings available (applied uniformly to all keys),
with an additional ‘User’ setting allowing players to perform custom adjustments on each individual key.
While the default ‘Normal’ voicing setting should be appropriate for a broad range of musical genres, it may be
desirable to select a softer, more mellow tonal character for romantic pieces, or a brighter, more aggressive tone
for modern styles.
* This Virtual Technician setting will affect all sounds.

3 Damper Resonance
Pressing the damper 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 pressed, not only will the strings of the notes played
vibrate, but also the strings of other notes, vibrating in sympathetic resonance.
The CA97/CA67 digital piano recreates this phenomenon, with the Damper Resonance setting allowing the volume
of this resonance sound to be adjusted.
* This Virtual Technician setting will affect acoustic piano sounds only.

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 overtone series.
The CA97/CA67 digital piano recreates this phenomenon, with the String Resonance setting allowing the volume
of this resonance to be adjusted.
* This Virtual Technician 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 play (strike
and release quickly) any of the keys marked with a  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 Undamped String Resonance
The dampers of an acoustic piano span almost the full width of the keyboard. However, the topmost 18 keys
(approximately 1.5 octaves) do not incorporate dampers, as the shorter strings for these treble notes decay quickly
and therefore do not need to be dampened.
Damped Strings

Undamped Strings
G6
C8
As a result, the strings of these ‘undamped’ treble notes are free to vibrate in sympathetic resonance with those of
lower keys – independently of the damper pedal position – helping to enrich the sound with additional harmonics
and tonal colour.
The CA97/CA67 digital piano recreates this phenomenon, with the Undamped String Resonance setting allowing
the volume of this resonance sound to be adjusted.
* This Virtual Technician setting will affect acoustic piano sounds only.

7 Cabinet Resonance
While the fundamental sound of an acoustic piano is produced by vibrating strings, transmitting energy through
a spruce soundboard, the cabinet of the instrument itself also contributes a variety of subtle tonal characteristics
that enrich the playing and listening experience. The keybed, inner and outer rim, iron plate, and beams all play a
role in disseminating sound energy, which in turn gives the piano a living, breathing quality.
The CA97/CA67 digital piano recreates these natural acoustic characteristics, with the Cabinet Resonance setting
allowing the volume of this resonance sound to be adjusted.
* This Virtual Technician setting will affect acoustic piano sounds only.

8 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 CA97/CA67 digital piano reproduces both characteristics, with the Key-off Effect setting allowing the volume of
the key-off sound to be adjusted, and the key-off release speed detection to be turned on or off.
* This Virtual Technician setting will affect acoustic piano and electric piano sounds.
1. Selecting the Key-off Effect setting

9 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 CA97/CA67 digital piano reproduces this sound, with the Fall-back Noise setting allowing the volume of this
sound to be adjusted.
While the default value is intended to simulate the natural volume level of the keys as they return to their neutral
position, it may occasionally be desirable to adjust the volume of this sound. For example, reducing the volume
when playing very soft pieces, where the fall-back noise may become too prominent.
* This Virtual Technician setting will affect acoustic piano and harpsichord sounds.

10 Hammer Delay
When playing pianissimo passages using an acoustic piano, there may be a perceived delay between a key being
pressed and the hammer striking the strings.
If desired, the CA97/CA67 digital piano can recreate this delay, with the Hammer Delay setting allowing the delay
length to be adjusted.
While the default value of ‘Off’ is intended to replicate a well-regulated concert grand piano, with an immediate
connection between the keyboard and hammers, some players may find it desirable to introduce a minor delay, in
order to mimic different types of piano or instruments with a slightly worn keyboard action.

11 Topboard Simulation
When playing an acoustic grand piano, the position of the instrument’s topboard (lid) affects both the volume and
‘openness’ of the tone produced. A fully open topboard allows sound waves to reflect off the polished lid surface
and project into the room, while a closed lid has the opposite effect, resulting in a darker, more opaque tone.
The CA97/CA67 digital piano simulates these characteristics, with four different topboard positions.
* This Virtual Technician setting will affect acoustic piano sounds only.

14 Stretch Tuning
Stretch tuning is a piano-specific tuning method used by acoustic piano technicians in which the lower octaves
are tuned slightly flatter and the upper octaves are tuned slightly sharper to match the natural harmonics of an
acoustic piano.
The Stretch Tuning setting allows the degree of stretch tuning to be adjusted when Equal temperament is selected,
or for stretch tuning to be completely disabled. It is also possible to create custom tuning methods by adjusting the
pitch of each individual key.

Description
This temperament is the most popular tuning method, and divides the scale into twelve equal semitones. This produces the same chordal intervals in all twelve keys, and has the advantage of limitless
modulation of the key. However, the tonality of each key becomes less characteristic and no chord is
in pure consonance.
This temperament, which eliminates dissonances for thirds and fifths, is still popular in choral music
because of its perfect harmony. Any key modulation will result in dissonances.
* The key of the temperament, and major/minor setting must be correctly matched.
This temperament, which uses mathematical ratios to eliminate dissonance for fifths, is very limited
for use with chords, but produces very characteristic melodic lines.
This temperament, which uses a mean between a major and minor whole tone to eliminate
dissonance for thirds, was devised to eliminate the lack of consonances experienced with certain fifths
for the Mersenne pure temperament.
It produces chords that are more beautiful than those played with equal temperament.
These two temperaments are placed in between Meantone and Pythagorean. For music with few
accidentals, this temperament produces the beautiful chords of the mean tone, but as accidentals
increase, the temperament produces the characteristic melodies of the Pythagorean temperament.
It is used primarily for classical music written in the Baroque era to revive the original characteristics.
A custom temperament, created by raising or lowering the pitch of each note in the scale.

MIDI Overview
The term MIDI is an acronym for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, an international standard for connecting
musical instruments, computers, and other devices to allow the exchange of performance data.
MIDI Terminals
MIDI terminal
Function
MIDI IN
Receiving note, program change, and other data.
MIDI OUT
Sending note, program change, and other data.
MIDI channels
MIDI uses channels to exchange data back and forth between MIDI devices. There are receive (MIDI IN) and transmit (MIDI OUT)
channels. Most musical instruments or devices with MIDI functions are equipped with both MIDI IN and OUT jacks and are capable of
transmitting and receiving data via MIDI. The receive channels are used to receive data from another MIDI device, and the transmit
channels are used to transmit data to another MIDI device.
The illustration below shows three musical instruments, connected together using MIDI.
Transmitting instrument a
Receiving instrument b
Receiving instrument c
Transmitting instrument a sends transmit channel and keyboard information to receiving instruments b/c.
The information arrives at the receiving instruments b/c.
Receiving instruments b/c will respond to MIDI data that is sent if their receive channel is the same as the transmit channel of the
transmitting instrument a. If the channels do not match, the receiving instruments b/c will not respond to any data that is sent.
Settings
For both receiving and transmitting, channels 1-16 can be used.
Recording/playing with a sequencer
When connected to a sequencer (or a computer running MIDI
sequencing software), the CA97/CA67 digital piano can be used
to record and playback multi-track songs, with separate sounds
playing simultaneously on each channel.

Connecting to Other Devices
The CA97/CA67 digital piano features a variety of jacks that allow the instrument to be connected to MIDI devices,
computers, speakers, and mixers. It is also possible to connect external audio sources, such as an MP3 player,
tablet, or a secondary keyboard, to the instrument’s amplifier and speaker system. The illustration below provides
a visual overview of the connectors and their typical applications.
USB type ‘B’
USB type ‘A’
Connect the audio from
other devices to the
instrument’s speakers.
Connect the instrument
to external speakers,
amplifiers, mixers, etc.
Connect the instrument
to a computer or tablet to
send or receive MIDI data.
Connect the instrument
to MIDI modules, other
instruments/devices, etc.
Appendix
Before connecting the CA97/CA67 digital piano to other devices, ensure that the power to both the instrument
and the other device is turned off. If connections are established while the power is turned on, extraneous
noise that can damage the CA97/CA67 digital piano may activate the instrument’s amplifier protection circuit,
preventing any sound from being produced. If this occurs, turn the power off and then on again to reset the
amplifier protection circuit.
Do not connect the LINE IN and LINE OUT jacks of the CA97/CA67 digital piano together with the same cable. An
audio loop (oscillation sound) will occur, resulting in damage to the unit.
136
Jack Panel
LINE IN STEREO jack (1/8” phone jack)
LINE OUT jacks (1/4” phone jack)
This jack is used to connect the 1/8” stereo outputs from
smart phones, tablets, computers, or other electronic audio
equipment to the CA97/CA67 digital piano’s amplifier and
speakers. The input level can be adjusted using the LEVEL knob,
or by adjusting the volume of the connected device.
These jacks are used to connect the stereo output of the CA97/
CA67 digital piano’s sound to external speakers, amplifiers,
mixers, recording devices, and similar equipment.
When using the USB audio recorder function, this LINE in audio
will also be mixed with the instrument’s internal sound and
recorded to the MP3/WAV file.
To output a mono signal, connect a single cable to the L/MONO
jack.
The output level can be adjusted using the LEVEL knob. The
MASTER VOLUME slider does not affect the LINE OUT level.
* The ‘Line In Level’ setting can also be used to adjust the level of the
LINE IN signal. Please refer to page 70 for more information.
USB to Host port (‘B’ type)
MIDI IN/OUT jacks
This USB port is used to connect the CA97/CA67 digital piano to
a computer using an inexpensive USB cable. When connected,
the instrument can be used as a standard MIDI device, allowing it
to send a receive MIDI data. Connect a ‘B’ type USB connector to
the instrument, and an ‘A’ type USB connector to the computer.
These jacks are used to connect the CA97/CA67 digital piano
to external MIDI devices, or to a computer (using a USB-MIDI
interface) as an alternative to the ‘USB to Host’ port.
* Please refer to page 110 for more information about MIDI.
* Please refer to page 118 for more information about USB MIDI.
With additional conversion adaptors, this port may also be used
to connect the CA97/CA67 digital piano to tablets such as the
Apple iPad and other mobile devices.
Headphone Panel
PHONES jacks (1/4” & 1/8” phone jacks)
USB to Device port (‘A’ type)
These jacks are used to connect stereo headphones to the CA97/
CA67 digital piano. Two pairs of headphones can be connected
and used simultaneously. When a pair of headphones is
connected, sound will not be produced by the speakers.
This USB port is used to connect a USB memory device to the
CA97/CA67 digital piano. This allows MP3/WAV audio files, and
SMF song files to be played directly. It is also possible to record
performances to MP3/WAV audio files, and save recorder songs
stored in internal memory for posterity.

Appendix
USB device information
Troubleshooting
The tables below summarise issues that may be experienced with the CA97/CA67 digital piano, explaining the
typical cause(s), and recommended solution(s).
Power
Issue
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. 14
The instrument turns itself off after a period
of inactivity.
Check that the ‘Auto Power Off’ function is not enabled.
p. 79
Sound
Issue
The instrument is turned on, however no sound
is produced when the keys are pressed.
The sound distorts when playing at very loud
volume levels.
Possible Cause and Solution
Page no.
Check that the MASTER VOLUME slider is not set to the lowest position.
p. 15
Check that a pair of headphones (or headphone adaptor plug) are not
connected to the PHONES jacks.
p. 15
Check that the ‘Local Control’ setting in the MIDI Settings menu is set to On.
p. 114
Check that the MASTER VOLUME slider is set to an appropriate level,
reducing the volume if excessive distortion is heard.
p. 15
If connecting the instrument to an amplifier/mixer using the Line Out
jacks, reduce the value of the ‘Line Out Volume’ setting in the Basic
Settings menu
Strange sounds or noises are heard when
playing with piano sounds.
The CA97/CA67 digital piano attempts to reproduce the rich variety of
tones created by an acoustic grand piano as accurately as possible. This
includes various resonances, noises, and other subtle characteristics that
contribute to the overall piano playing experience.
p. 80
While these additional tones are intended to enhance the realism of
the instrument, it is possible to reduce their prominence, or disable the
effects altogether using the settings in the Virtual Technician menu.
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.
–
The volume of the device connected to the Line
In jacks is too low/too high (distorted).
Check the position of the Line In LEVEL knob (located on the jack panel),
and adjust as necessary.
p. 137
Pedals
Appendix
Issue
138
Possible Cause and Solution
Page no.
The pedals are unreliable or do not function
at all.
Check that the pedal cable is firmly connected to the instrument
(CA67 only).
p. 135
When depressing a pedal, the pedal board
flexes and is not firm.
Check that the pedal support bolt is fully extended.
p. 135
Headphones
Issue
Possible Cause and Solution
Page no.
The headphone volume is too low.
If the ‘Nominal Impedance’ specification of the headphones is less
than 100 Ω (ohms), set the ‘Phones Volume’ setting in the Phones
Settings menu to High.
p. 109

Issue
Possible Cause and Solution
Page no.
p. 137
A USB memory device is not detected, cannot be
saved to, or does not appear to function when
connected to the ‘USB to Device’ port.
Check that the USB memory device is formatted to use the FAT/FAT32
filesystem, and not set to ‘Write Protect’ mode.
Disconnect the USB memory device, turn the instrument off then on, then
reconnect the USB device. If the USB device still does not function, it may
be damaged or incompatible. Please try using a different USB device.
–
The instrument pauses briefly when connecting
a USB memory device.
This is recognised behaviour when using large capacity (e.g. 8GB+) USB
memory devices.
–
USB (MIDI)
Issue
The instrument is connected to the computer
using a USB cable, however the software does
not respond to key presses.
Possible Cause and Solution

p. 57
Check that the format of the audio file is supported and listed in the
‘Audio Player supported format specifications’ table.
p. 56
An MP3/WAV audio file stored on a USB
memory device sounds strange, or does not
play back correctly.
Check that the format of the audio file is supported and listed in the
‘Audio Player supported format specifications’ table.
p. 56
The file transfer speed of the USB memory device may be too slow to
play the audio file. Please try using a different USB memory device,
ensuring that it conforms to USB2.0 Hi-Speed standards.
