This Curve has a steep rise as velocity increases, and a
shallower curve at low velocities. (see 1) This curve
requires the most striking force to produce a loud
volume.
This curve requires a stronger striking force to produce
a loud volume. (see 2) This curve is perfect for those
with strong fingers.
This curve recreates the touch response of an average
acoustic piano.
This curve requires less striking force to produce a loud
volume. (see 4) This curve is good for those still
developing finger strength.
This curve requires the least amount of striking force to produce a loud volume. (see 5)
This curve is good for those with a very delicate touch.
This curve gives a constant velocity level no matter how hard the keyboard is struck. (see
6) This curve is suitable for sounds that have a fixed dynamic range such as
Organ,Harpsichord and certain synthesizer sounds.
You can create your own custom touch curve to fit your playing style. Two user touch
curves can be saved.
Transpose
The transpose function allows the DP1’s key to be raised or lowered in half steps. The available range is
six octaves up or down.
Key Vib.
This parameter allows the degree of vibration felt through the DP1 keyboard to be adjusted.
2. Creating a User Touch Curve
The touch curve is the main component between the action and the sound. With the User Touch Curve
function, the DP1’s touch responsiveness can be finely customised to suit an individual’s personal playing
style.
(1)
Select the touch curve labelled 'User1' or 'User2' using the Right-Lower VALUE buttons.

Touch Curve
To begin creating your own personal touch curve, touch the SAVE button.
System
Now start playing the piano dynamically from soft to loud, in order for the DP1 to analyse
your playing style. Ensure that you play in a realistic fashion that reflects your personal
finger power and feeling.
Better results may be achieved by turning off the volume before starting this process.
The red bar indicates the maximum level, and the blue bar indicates the average level.
(3)
After playing, touch the SAVE button again.
The DP1 will analyse your playing style and create a custom touch curve, based upon your
personal touch. This new touch curve is saved automatically and will remain selected until
the touch curve is changed or a new User Touch Curve is recorded.
