Welcome to the Kawai CN34
1 Feature Highlights
‘Responsive Hammer II’ weighted-key action, with Ivory Touch key surfaces and Let-off simulation
Introduction
The new Responsive Hammer II (RHII) 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 CN34 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 CN34 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.
The instrument’s built-in Virtual Technician feature allows various characteristics of the acoustic piano sound to be shaped at
the touch of a button, with settings to adjust string and damper resonance. This personalised piano sound is further enhanced
with atmospheric reverberation effects, delivering a rich, vibrant piano tone with breathtaking realism and authenticity.

memories and songs recorded and 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 a smartphone, or for further editing using an audio workstation.
Wide range of connectivity options
The CN34 digital piano features a variety of standard connectivity options, with Line-level output jacks that allow the

Using the Pedals
As with a grand piano, the CN34 digital piano features three pedals: sustain, sostenuto, and soft.
„ Sustain pedal (right pedal)
The sustain pedal is capable of responding to half pedaling.
Introduction
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.
Soft pedal
Sostenuto pedal
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 CN34 digital piano features the Grand Feel pedal system, which replicates the sustain, soft, and sostenuto pedal weighting of
Kawai’s EX Concert Grand piano.

Enhancing the Sound
The CN34 digital piano offers a variety of features to adjust and enhance the character of a particular sound. Some
of these features (e.g. Reverb), are enabled automatically when a sound is selected, however players may also wish
to change or type of enhancement to suit their personal preferences or different styles of music.
1 Reverb
Reverb adds reverberation to the sound, simulating the acoustic environment of a recital room, stage, or concert
hall. Some sound types, such as acoustic piano, enable reverb automatically in order to improve acoustic realism.
The CN34 digital piano features six different reverb types.

Touch
As with an acoustic piano, the CN34 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 function allows the touch sensitivity of the keyboard to be changed to one of five different settings:
Light +, Light, Heavy, Heavy + or Off.
Playing the Piano
„ 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.
Light
* This touch curve is recommended for children and organ players.
Reproduces the standard touch sensitivity of an acoustic piano.
Normal (default)
* This touch curve is used when the Touch function is turned off.

Virtual Technician
An experienced piano technician is essential to fully realise the potential of a fine acoustic piano. In addition to
meticulously tuning each note, the technician also performs numerous regulation and voicing adjustments that
allow the instrument to truly sing.
The Virtual Technician settings of the CN34 digital piano simulate these refinements digitally, allowing performers
to shape various aspects of the instrument’s character to suit their personal preferences.

2-1 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 CN34 digital piano recreates this phenomenon, with the Damper Resonance setting allowing the volume of
this resonance sound to be adjusted.

resonance to be adjusted.
„ 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

2-3 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 CN34 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.

2-5 Temperament
The Temperament setting allows the tuning system used by the CN34 digital piano to be changed from the modern
‘Equal Temperament’ standard to one of the various temperaments popularised during the Renaissance and
Baroque periods.
„ Temperament types
Temperament type
Description
Equal Temperament (piano)
This is the default temperament. When a piano sound is selected, the tuning will be stretched like an
acoustic piano (equal temperament).
(Equal P.only)
Pure Temperament
(Pure Major/Pure Minor)
Pythagorean Temperament
(Pythagorean)
Meantone Temperament
(Meantone)
Werckmeister III Temperament
(Werkmeister)
Kirnberger III Temperament
(Kirnberger)
Equal Temperament (flat)
(Equal Flat)
Equal Temperament
(Equal Stretch)
* 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.

enough to create the desired sound character, especially if both sounds are very dynamic. Layering two equally
dynamic sounds can prove difficult to control and play comfortably.
The Layer Dynamics Function allows the dynamic sensitivity of the layered sound to be reduced, in order to improve
the blend between the two combined sounds. In addition to reducing the volume of the layered sound, limiting its
dynamic sensitivity also allows the layered sound to be controlled more easily in relation to the main sound.

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.
„ Recording/playing with a sequencer
Settings
When connected to a sequencer (or a computer running MIDI
sequencing software), the CN34 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 CN34 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’
Appendix
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 to send
or receive MIDI data.
Connect the instrument
to MIDI modules, other
instruments/devices, etc.
Before connecting the CN34 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 CN34 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 CN34 digital piano together with the same cable. An audio
loop (oscillation sound) will occur, resulting in damage to the unit.
106
Jack Panel
„LINE IN jacks (1/4” phone jack)
„LINE OUT jacks (1/4” phone jack)
These jacks are used to connect a pair of stereo outputs from
other electronic instruments or audio equipment to the CN34
digital piano’s speakers. To adjust the LINE IN level, please use
the volume controls on the device itself.
These jacks are used to connect the stereo output of the CN34
digital piano’s sound to external speakers, amplifiers, mixers,
recording devices, and similar equipment.
To connect a device in mono, connect the cable to the L/MONO
jack only.
Mono signals will be output only if a cable is connected to the
L/MONO jack.
The MASTER VOLUME slider does not affect the LINE OUT level.
* The ‘Line Out Volume’ setting can be used to adjust the level of the
LINE OUT signal. Please refer to page 74 for more information.
„USB to Host port (‘B’ type)
„MIDI IN/OUT jacks
This USB port is used to connect the CN34 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 CN34 digital piano to
external MIDI devices, and also to a computer with a MIDI
interface as an alternative to the ‘USB to Host’ port.
* Please refer to page 93 for more information about MIDI.
* Please refer to page 101 for more information about USB MIDI.
Headphone Panel
„PHONES jacks (1/4” phone jack)
„USB to Device port (‘A’ type)
These jacks are used to connect stereo headphones to the CN34
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
CN34 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 SMF, and save
recorder songs stored in internal memory for posterity.
ƒ The ‘USB to Device’ functionality of the CN34 digital piano
ƒ It may be necessary to format the USB memory device before
conforms to USB2.0 Hi-Speed standards. Older USB devices
can still be used, however data transfer speed will be limited
to the maximum transfer speed of the device.
it can be used with the CN34 digital piano. If so, please refer to
the USB Format function instructions on page 67. Formatting
the device will erase all data.
The ‘USB to Device’ port is intended for connecting USB
memory devices, however USB floppy drive devices can also
be used to save recorder songs stored in internal memory, or
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.

jacks, reduce the value of the ‘Line Out Volume’ setting in the Basic
Settings menu
Appendix
Strange sounds or noises are heard when
playing with piano sounds.
The top 18 notes of the keyboard sustain for
longer than neighbouring notes, even when
the damper pedal is not pressed.
p. 74
The CN34 digital piano attempts to reproduce the rich variety of tones
created by an acoustic grand piano as accurately as possible. This
includes string and damper resonances, key-off noises, and other
subtle characteristics that contribute to the overall piano playing
experience.
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.
p. 81
This is the correct behaviour, and intended to reproduce the undamped
notes (typically the top two octaves) of an acoustic grand piano.
