At Musikmesse 2015, being held April 15-18 in Frankfurt, Germany, Korg is introducing the Havian 30 Digital Ensemble Piano.
The Havian 30 provides classic grand, upright and electric piano sounds, plus a collection of additional musical instrument sounds.
Here’s the official video intro:
The Korg Havian 30 88-Note Digital Ensemble Piano
The Korg Havian 30 88-Note Digital Ensemble Piano features sounds ranging from a classic grand piano to honky-tonk, as well as an extensive selection of electric pianos.
The keyboard features a 5” TFT colour TouchView display. By using touch, you can edit and control parameters of instruments, or just generally control the Havian 30.
The Havian 30 also supports MIDI and MP3 formats, and both formats can be used for recording. The fully-featured sequencer allows you to record MIDI songs, and with a quick hit of the Styles button, you can record your real time performances. When playing MIDI data, things such as lyrics and chords that might be attached will be shown on the display. Everything played can be also easily recorded and saved as an MP3 file for playback.
The USB ports allow players to connect to any external storage device, computer, smartphone or tablet without any need for a dedicated MIDI interface.
