If you're a pianist on the go, Music Experience would like to introduce you to an 88-key weighted hammer-action digital piano that you can take from home to rehearsals to the stage with a minimum of fuss. The Korg D1 features Korg's high-quality RH3 keybed, which delivers a fine-tuned playing feel. And whether you play jazz, rock, or classical, you'll appreciate the D1's 30 richly expressive sounds, which have you covered for any gig or musical genre. Sampled at four different velocities, the hyper-realistic acoustic grand pianos work hand-in-hand with the D1's RH3 action to transmit every dynamic nuance of your playing, complete with damper resonance and key-off. The D1's vintage-inspired electric pianos are wonderfully responsive to your touch, as are the onboard organ, clavinet, vibraphone, acoustic guitar, and string sounds. The D1's outstanding portability is a big selling point. Weighing only 35.27 pounds, its sleek, compact, solid wood chassis lets you easily slide it into a gig bag and be on your way. The Korg D1: don't leave home without it.

High-quality onboard sounds and effects

Featuring a sound bank with 30 high-quality, expressive sounds arranged into three banks of 10, the Korg D1 digital piano's onboard sounds include five acoustic pianos, an electric grand, six meticulously modeled vintage electric pianos, harpsichord, two clavinets, marimba, vibraphone, acoustic guitar, three jazz organs, three pipe organs, three lush string patches, and three gorgeous choirs. To enhance and customize your sounds to taste, the D1 offers three effects — brilliance, reverb, and chorus.

      Enjoy satisfying, realistic piano feel

      Korg's D1 closely replicates the playing feel of a fine acoustic piano by switching between four samples according to your playing dynamics. From subtle nuances to robust crescendos, the D1 transmits all the expression in your playing — including the key-off and damper resonance that occurs when you hold down the sustain pedal of an acoustic piano. And speaking of sustain, the D1 supports half-damper pedaling with compatible pedals. It's this attention to sonic detail that makes the D1 so rewarding to play.

          Realistic acoustic piano playing experience

          The D1 features a Korg's superb weighted hammer-action 3 (RH3) keybed that reproduces the touch of a grand piano, in which the low notes feel heavier and the action becomes progressively lighter as you move up the keyboard. Another realism-enhancing feature of the D1's Concert Piano and Grand Piano sounds is damper resonance that simulates the spacious resonance produced by sympathetic string vibration when the damper pedal of an acoustic piano is held down. The D1 also features key-off simulation — the decay of the sound when you take your finger off a key. Key-off also factors into the way in which your playing technique affects the string resonance, naturally responding to staccato or legato to further enhance the expressiveness of your performances.

          Smart functions enhance your playing experience

          Korg equipped the D1 with convenient features that make it a pleasure to play. To play two sounds together — for instance, piano and strings — switch on Layer Mode intuitively by pressing two sound buttons simultaneously. The metronome can be turned on/off at a touch. Touch Control functionality lets you choose between five settings (light, standard, heavy, stable, or fixed) to specify how the sounds respond to your playing dynamics. To enhance and customize your sounds to taste, the D1 offers three studio-grade effects — brilliance, reverb, and chorus. The optimum effect for each sound is already specified as a preset, so you can simply select a sound and concentrate on playing it — confident it will sound great.

          Ready to roll

          The Korg D1 gives you the connectivity you'll need on stage. The 1/4" Line Out jacks can be connected directly to the PA or recording gear. With its compactness and light weight, D1 also makes an ideal run-and-gun MIDI controller keyboard for external gear and your software instruments; MIDI In/Out DIN connectors are provided for connection to sound modules or to your computer via a MIDI interface. The D1 ships with a detachable music rest and a compact damper pedal for easy portability.

            What KORG Says...

            The playing feel of a grand piano, on stage or in your room. A speaker-less slim piano ideal for daily practice or performing live. For players interested not only in classical, but also jazz, rock, or funk, the convenience of being able to play in a practice room plus the mobility to take the D1 anywhere is key. On top of that, a carefully fine-tuned playing feel is crucial. The D1 is a piano that delivers on all counts for pianists and keyboardists of any genre. The D1 is focused on providing the ultimate in slim, compact design. The result is a top-class keyboard that reproduces the playing feel of a grand piano, and yet is highly portable. With its high-quality keybed developed by KORG and a rich variety of 30 sounds that will shine on stage, this instrument is the perfect fit for daily practice or performance.

            Japanese-made high-quality RH3 keybed

            The D1 features a real weighted hammer action 3 (RH3) keybed that reproduces the touch of a grand piano, where the low notes are heavier and the action becomes lighter as you play toward the higher notes. With this keybed's natural-feeling touch and weight, you'll want to keep playing it forever.

            A compact body that you can take anywhere

            The chassis construction has been rethought with a new structure and design that slims the body to a depth of approximately 26 cm* (10.24"), the minimum depth that still allows enjoyable playing. Even though the D1 features a full-fledged weighted keybed, it's highly mobile, and can be carried anywhere in its dedicated SC-D1 soft case (sold separately). The stylish ST-SV1 stand (sold separately) completes a great-looking setup on stage or in your room. *: Without the music rest.

            Thirty high-quality sounds

            The D1 contains a total of 30 richly expressive sounds which include not only a variety of piano sounds to cover genres such as classical, jazz, and pop, but also electric piano, organ, and clavi sounds that will be useful on stage, and even sounds such as vibraphone, acoustic guitar, and strings.

              Rich piano sounds geared for realism

              In order to achieve a playing feel that's amazingly close to that of an acoustic piano, the sound switches between four piano samples depending on the dynamics of your performance. From a delicate touch to dynamic fortissimo, the sound responds realistically to your playing. The overall piano sound is enjoyable to play and delivers an authentic experience.

              Serious electric piano sounds

              The electric piano sounds reproduce not only the tonal differences in response to your playing touch but also the key-off noise. Six variations are built in, covering sounds often used in the popular music of the '60s and '70s as well as tones that are treasured in soul music.

              Organ sounds

              Six versatile sounds are provided, ranging from sounds used in rock or jazz to solemn pipe organ tones.

              Cutting-edge technology faithfully reproduces the resonances of a grand piano

              The D1 features functionality that reproduces the sound of a grand piano, enabling natural-sounding and great-feeling performances..

              Damper resonance

              The Concert Piano, Grand Piano and Jazz Piano sounds reproduce damper resonance, realistically simulating the spacious resonance produced by the sympathetic vibration of the strings when you hold down the damper pedal of an acoustic piano.

              Key-off simulation

              The D1 also simulates the decay of the sound when you take your finger off a key and the way in which your playing technique affects the string resonance, responding to staccato or legato in a natural way that further enhances the expressiveness of your performance.

              Convenient functions that you expect from a digital piano

              The metronome can be turned on/off at a touch. Layer mode lets you layer two sounds simply by pressing two sound buttons simultaneously, for example letting you combine strings or vibraphone with the piano sound that you're playing. The touch control function lets you choose from five settings (light, standard, heavy, stable, fixed) to specify how the sound responds to your playing dynamics, allowing you to enjoy performing with the response of your choice. Three high-quality effects are also built-in: brilliance, reverb, and chorus. The optimal effect for each internal sound is already specified as a preset, so you can simply select a sound and focus on playing it with the best possible tone.

              Standard-sized LINE OUT jacks, and also MIDI IN/OUT connectors

              The D1 provides the external connection jacks that you'll need on stage. The standard-sized LINE OUT jacks can be connected directly to amplified speakers or to recording equipment. MIDI IN/OUT connectors are also provided. You can connect these via a MIDI interface to your computer, and use the D1 as a MIDI keyboard or as a piano sound module.

              Music rest and dedicated pedal for stage play are included

              The music rest that's indispensable for stage performance is included standard, and can easily be attached to the D1. Also included is a compact-sized damper pedal for convenient portability.
