Welcome to the NOVUS NV10
Feature Highlights
Millennium III Hybrid grand piano keyboard action, with optical hammer sensing system
Introduction
The NOVUS NV10 is the first digital piano to incorporate Kawai’s leading acoustic grand piano keyboard action technology,
renowned for its extended spruce key sticks, and innovative ABS Carbon components that are stronger, lighter, and more
dimensionally stable than conventional wooden parts.
The specially adapted Millennium III Hybrid keyboard action utilised by the NV10 replaces traditional felt hammers with new
ABS equivalents that are individual graded in weight from bass to treble, while high-precision optical sensors take the place
of metal strings, accurately reading the subtle movements of each hammer as the corresponding keys are played.
Grand Piano Damper Mechanism for authentic pedal control
In addition to featuring a full acoustic grand piano keyboard action, the NOVUS NV10 is the first hybrid instrument to
also incorporate a real grand piano damper mechanism. While there are no strings inside the NV10 to require physical
damping, this unique feature replicates the true weighting of a grand piano damper pedal, while also mechanically easing
the keyboard action’s touch weight as the pedal is pressed.
Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano reproduced with latest SK-EX Rendering sound technology
The magnificent tone of Kawai’s flagship Shigeru Kawai SK-EX full concert grand piano is at the heart of the NOVUS NV10
hybrid digital piano. 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 tonal clarity and exceptional dynamic
range.
In order to faithfully reproduce the stunning sound of a Shigeru digitally, Kawai has developed SK-EX Rendering – a brand
new piano sound engine that blends multi-channel, 88-key sampling with the latest resonance modelling technology.
Multi-channel sampling captures the sound from different points of the Shigeru Kawai concert grand piano, allowing a
broader range of tonal characteristics to be reproduced, and providing a more lively, authentic response to changes in
dynamics. This naturally expressive sound is further enriched by newly developed resonance algorithms, which physically
model the complex tonal interactions produced by the strings, pedals, and various other parts of an acoustic piano, giving
players the impression that they’re sitting at a living, breathing instrument.
Alternative acoustic piano sounds and a strong selection of additional instrument voices
In addition to the latest SK-EX Rendering piano sound engine, the NOVUS NV10 hybrid digital piano also incorporates Kawai’s
highly regarding Harmonic Imaging XL technology, showcasing a variety of alternative acoustic piano sounds and a strong
selection of additional instrument voices. The Kawai EX full concert grand piano has frequently been selected by professional
pianists in such prestigious events as the Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Rubinstein international piano competitions, while the
Shigeru Kawai SK-5 chamber grand and Kawai K-60 upright, allow performers to enjoy the contrasting tonal characteristics
of various different piano sizes and voicing configurations.
Supplementing these realistic acoustic piano voices, the NOVUS NV10 hybrid digital piano also features 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 4Hands playing modes divide the keyboard into two independent sections.
Virtual Technician adjustments to personalise the instrument’s character
The NOVUS NV10 hybrid digital piano’s Virtual Technician feature allows various characteristics of the selected acoustic
piano, electric piano, or harpsichord sound to be shaped from the instruments’ touchscreen display, 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 favorite instrument
configuration to memory.
10
Integrated Bluetooth® MIDI and Audio connectivity
Introduction
In addition to standard MIDI jacks for connecting to other instruments, the NOVUS NV10 hybrid digital piano also boasts
integrated Bluetooth MIDI and Audio technology that allows the instrument to communicate with supported smart devices
wirelessly. Once connected to a phone, tablet, or laptop, NV10 owners can enjoy a wide variety of exciting music-related
apps that enhance their learning and playing experience, or stream audio from songs and videos through the instrument’s
speakers without any additional cables.
*Availability of Bluetooth function dependent on market location.
USB to Device functionality, with MP3/WAV file recording and playback
The NOVUS NV10 hybrid digital piano is equipped with USB connectors that not only allow the instrument 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
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 favorite 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.
Premium audio hardware, powered by Onkyo
Developed in collaboration with Onkyo, one of Japan’s leading premium audio equipment manufacturers, the NOVUS NV10
hybrid digital piano is one of the first Kawai musical instruments to utilise specialist components designed for high-end
audio reproduction.
With cutting-edge technologies such as 1-bit processing, dual DAC signal conversion, and Onkyo’s DIRDC filtering, the
NV10’s optimised power amplifiers reproduce the Shigeru Kawai grand piano sound with stunning clarity, richness, and
power, while the high-performance Discrete Spectra Module headphone amplifier ensures the finest quality listening
experience, even when playing in privacy.
Full-colour touchscreen display for intuitive, button-less operation
The NOVUS NV10 is the first instrument of its kind to feature a full-colour 5” touchscreen display. Discreetly embedded
within the left cheekblock, this high resolution touchscreen allows sounds and settings to be selected from an attractive
user interface with the swipe of a finger. The display can also be set to turn off automatically while playing, thus preserving
the NV10’s acoustic piano-like appearance, and minimising any visual distraction to the pianist.

4 Pedals
As with a grand piano, the NV10 hybrid digital piano features three pedals: damper, sostenuto, and soft.
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 damper pedal is capable of responding to half pedaling.
Introduction
Damper pedal (right pedal)
Soft pedal
Sostenuto pedal
Damper 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 to 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 proper 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 NV10 hybrid digital piano features the Grand Feel Pedal System, which replicates the position and individual weighting of the
damper, soft, and sostenuto pedals of a Shigeru Kawai SK Concert Grand piano. It is also possible to adjust the sensitivity of the
damper pedal, and the effectiveness of the soft pedal using the ‘Half-Pedal Adjust’ and ‘Soft Pedal Depth’ settings.

allows different Virtual Technician adjustments to be made for each piano voice. For example, it may be desirable to voice the SK
Concert Grand piano a little brighter than the EX Concert Grand piano, or increase the Damper, String, and Cabinet Resonances of
the SK-5 Grand while leaving the Pop Piano unchanged.

1 Touch Curve
Pianist Mode
Sound Mode
As with an acoustic piano, the NV10 hybrid 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

2 Voicing
Pianist Mode
Sound Mode
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 NV10 hybrid
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.

3 Damper Resonance
Sound Mode
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 NV10 hybrid 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.
Adjusting the Damper Resonance volume
Long press and drag the slider to increase or decrease the
volume of the Damper Resonance setting.
*The Damper Resonance volume can be adjusted within the range

6 Undamped String Resonance
Sound Mode
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 NV10 hybrid 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.
Adjusting the Undamped String Resonance volume

7 Cabinet Resonance
Sound Mode
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 NV10 hybrid digital piano recreates these natural acoustic characteristics, with the Cabinet Resonance setting
allowing the volume of this resonance sound to be adjusted.

8 Key-off Effect
Sound Mode
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 NV10 hybrid 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 Fall-back Noise
Pianist Mode
Sound Mode
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 NV10 hybrid 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.

If desired, the NV10 hybrid 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
Sound Mode
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 NV10 hybrid digital piano simulates these characteristics, with four different topboard positions.

and Baroque periods. It is also possible to create customised temperaments using the User Temperament function.
*This Virtual Technician setting will affect all sounds.
Temperament types
Temperament type
Description
Equal Temperament (default)
(Equal)
This temperament is the most popular tuning method, and divides the scale into twelve equal
semi-tones. 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.
Pure Temperament
(Pure Major/Pure Minor)
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.
Pythagorean Temperament
(Pythagorean)
This temperament, which uses mathematical ratios to eliminate dissonance for fifths, is very
limited for use with chords, but produces very characteristic melodic lines.
Meantone Temperament
(Meantone)
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.
Werckmeister Temperament
(Werckmeister)
Kirnberger Temperament
(Kirnberger)
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.

Pianist Mode
Sound Mode
The Soft Pedal Depth setting adjusts the extent to which the soft (left) pedal of the NV10 hybrid digital piano softens
the sound of played notes.
While the default value is intended to replicate the effectiveness of a concert grand Una Corda pedal, it may be
desirable for players to increase or decrease the value of this setting to suit their playing style.
On an acoustic piano, pressing this Una Corda pedal shifts the keyboard action slightly to the right, causing the
hammers to strike two strings instead of the usual three, thus reducing the volume of each note.
*This Virtual Technician setting will affect all sounds.

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.
For both receiving and transmitting, channels 1-16 can be used.
Settings
Recording/playing with a sequencer
When connected to a sequencer (or a computer running MIDI
sequencing software), the NV10 hybrid digital piano can be
used to record and playback multi-track songs, with separate
sounds playing simultaneously on each channel.
