Technologies Deliver Full-Range Fidelity and
Enhanced Low-End Response To achieve the
deep, rich tones of an acoustic piano within
its compact body, the B1 Digital Piano
relies on KORG’s servo-assisted MFB
technology, a pair of full-range speakers,
plus a passive radiator. Together, these
elements reproduce the rich resonant tones
that emanate from the large body of an
acoustic piano, with particular attention
paid to the low-frequency range. *MFB
(Motional Feedback) Technology: The built-in
speaker system is equipped with MFB
technology. This active servo system
controls the movement of the cone, allowing
low frequencies to be reproduced with
minimal distortion. In use, the movement
(velocity) of the speaker cone (vibrational
surface) is detected, and a signal that
compensates for the mechanical response of
the speaker and speaker chamber is returned
to the amp (feedback). This Motional
Feedback technology allows the system to
achieve ideal frequency response, and
permits the low-frequency range to be
reproduced accurately; any coloration of the
sound caused by the speaker enclosure is
immediately corrected. This well-regarded
technique reinforces the low-end
response—particularly with small
speakers—and can also help to compensate for
the room acoustics.
Eight Expressive and Highly-Detailed Instruments Sounds As with all digital pianos, the KORG B1 uses sampling technology (multiple digital recordings) to capture and recreate the rich, vibrant tone of an acoustic piano. As sampling technology has continued to improve—and as digital memory components have become more abundant—the KORG B1 Digital Piano is able to deliver a more accurate, authentic, and expressive sound than instruments of just a few years ago. In addition to capturing the enormous tonal range of a grand piano, the meticulously-sampled sounds created for the B1 Digital Piano also reproduce the sympathetic string vibrations and damper resonances that give the piano its character. Three flavors of acoustic piano are provided; the B1 Digital Piano also provides two electric pianos, a harpsichord, and two organ sounds—each delivered with precise realism. This generous set of frequently-used sounds allows any player to expand their repertoire to cover many musical genres. The dedicated PIANO PLAY button instantly recalls the Concert Grand Piano sound.
The B1 Digital Piano is equipped with KORG’s NH (Natural Weighted Hammer) keyboard action. This Natural Weighting provides a heavier touch in the lower registers, transitioning to a lighter touch in the upper regions—just as on a traditional piano. The dynamic response of the keyboard can be set to match the playing style of any performer.
The efficient design of the B1 Digital Piano encourages you to enjoy playing and minimizes distractions.
Sleek and streamlined, the compact body houses the built-in speaker system, yet weighs only 26 lbs. (11.8 kg.) allowing for east transport—if needed. The depth barely exceeds 13 inches (336 mm), making the B1 Digital Piano extremely agile and versatile when it comes to placement.
Available in either Black or White, the B1 Digital Piano can complement any décor.
Improved Music Rest
The music rest of the B1 Digital Piano features a page retention pocket that keeps music pages and folios from turning unexpectedly during performance—printed music up to 10 mm (approx.) in thickness can be accommodated. This thoughtful addition allows you to concentrate on your playing.
