Welcome to the Concert Artist
1 Feature Highlights
Grand Feel wooden-key action with Ivory Touch key surfaces and ‘Let-Off’ mechanism.
The CA95 and CA65 digital pianos utilise Kawai’s latest Grand Feel wooden-key keyboard action, which draws upon 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 new Grand Feel keys are longer than any other digital piano
keyboard action, with the pivot point distance extended to match 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 hammers are graded in size and
weight, replicating the heavier bass and lighter treble notes of an acoustic grand piano, while additional counter-weights
embedded within the lower keys help to lighten their touch during pianissimo passages. The Grand Feel 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 keyboard action features Kawai’s Ivory Touch key surfaces as standard. This finely textured material
gently absorbs moisture to assist playing control, and possesses a natural, matte finish that is smooth, but not slippery.
Harmonic Imaging XL (HI-XL) with 88-key piano sampling
The CA95 & CA65 digital pianos capture the beautiful sound of Kawai’s highly acclaimed hand-built EX concert grand
piano, with all 88 keys of this exceptional instrument meticulously recorded, analysed and faithfully reproduced using the
latest Harmonic Imaging™ XL sound 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.
Both Concert Artist models feature a wide range of Concert, Studio, Jazz, Modern, and Pop grand piano sounds, and also
include a full-bodied traditional upright piano sound.
Strong selection of additional instrument sounds
Supplementing the realistic acoustic piano voices, the CA95 & CA65 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 CA95 & CA65 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 and damper resonances, and subtle hammer, damper, and key release noises. It is even possible to adjust the precise
tuning and volume of individual notes, before saving one’s personal configuration to an onboard registration memory.
USB to Device functionality, with MP3/WAV file recording and playback
The CA95 & CA65 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.
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 CA95 & CA65 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 Line-in jacks provide a convenient
method of mixing in audio from a laptop, tablet, or other digital device.

sectionthe Pedals
Using
As with a grand piano, the CA95/CA65 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
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 CA95/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.
* For more information, please refer to page 95.

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 CA95/CA65 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.

9 Topboard
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 CA95/CA65 digital piano attempts to simulate these characteristics, with four different topboard positions.
* This Virtual Technician setting will affect acoustic piano sounds only.

* If any other type of sound is selected, the tuning will be set to equal temperament (flat).
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.
This is an ‘unstretched’ equal temperament that divides the scale into twelve equal semi-tones. It 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 is the most popular piano temperament. The hearing ability of a human is uneven and is not as
accurate with high frequency and low frequency as it is with the middle range. This temperament’s
tuning is stretched to compensate for this so the sound will be heard naturally to the ears. This
‘stretched’ equal temperament is a practical variation of the ‘unstretched’ equal temperament which
was invented on a mathematical basis.
A custom, user temperament, created by raising or lowering the pitch for each semi-tone.

„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.
For both receiving and transmitting, channels 1-16 can be used.

play SMF song files.
ƒ Avoid removing the USB memory device while data is being
ƒ
loaded or saved, files are being renamed or deleted, or the
device is being formatted.
ƒ Other USB devices, such as computer mice, keyboards, or
battery chargers etc. cannot be used with this instrument.

„USB device information
Troubleshooting
The tables below summarise issues that may be experienced with the CA95/CA65 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. 117
„ 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. 101
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 CA95/CA65 digital piano attempts to reproduce the rich variety of tones
created by an acoustic grand piano as accurately as possible. This includes
string resonances and damper noises, and other subtle characteristics that
contribute to the overall piano playing experience.
p. 76
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.
–
Possible Cause and Solution
Page no.
„ Pedals
Appendix
Issue
124
The pedals are unreliable or do not function
at all.
Check that the pedal cable is firmly connected to the instrument
(CA65 only).
p. 118
When depressing a pedal, the pedal board
flexes and is not firm.
Check that the pedal support bolt is fully extended.
p. 121
„ Headphones
Issue
The headphone volume is too low.
Possible Cause and Solution
If the ‘Nominal Impedance’ specification of the headphones is less
than 100 Ω (ohms), set the ‘Phones Volume’ setting in the Basic
Settings menu to High.
Page no.
p. 66
„ USB (memory device)
Issue
Possible Cause and Solution
Page no.
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.
p. 122
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 very large capacity (e.g. 8GB+)
USB memory devices.
–
Possible Cause and Solution
Page no.
„ USB (MIDI)
Issue
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. 105
Check that ‘USB Audio Device’ or ‘KAWAI USB MIDI’ is selected in the
software’s input/output device settings.
p. 105
„ MP3/WAV/SMF files
Possible Cause and Solution
Page no.
No sound can be heard when playing an MP3
or WAV audio file stored on a USB memory
device.
Check that the audio player volume is not set to 0.
p. 53
Check that the format of the audio file is supported and listed in the
‘Audio Player supported format specifications’ table.
p. 52
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. 52
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.
p. 123
When recording MP3/WAV audio files, the
volume is too low/too high (distorted).
Check the gain setting before recording the audio, and if necessary
adjust to increase/decrease the recording level.
p. 50
An SMF MIDI file stored on a USB memory
device sounds strange when played back.
The CA95/CA65 digital piano does not contain the full General MIDI
sound bank selection. Consequently, some SMF song files may not be
reproduced entirely accurately when played through the instrument.
