Natural Touch keyboard
Korg equipped the B2N with its newly developed NT (Natural Touch) keyboard, so it reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano with heavier action in the low register and a lighter feel in the upper register. Perfect for children who are just beginning their musical journey, the NT keybed provides a positive sense of striking the keys while causing less player fatigue over long periods than fully-weighted hammer actions.
World-class grand pianos
The B2N delivers a total of 12 sounds that cover a diverse array of genres, including five opulent pianos from Korg‰۪s new, state-of-the-art piano engine, as well as rich and distinct electric piano, organ, harpsichord, and string sounds. The world-class German grand ‰ÛÓ coveted by concert pianists for its massive, expressive power ‰ÛÓ offers stunning vibrancy and dynamic range, soaring highs, and thundering, articulate lows. Korg includes the majestic German Concert Piano as well as the Classic Piano with a delicate, complex timbre. There are three impeccable Italian pianos onboard the B2N, represented by the lively Italian Concert Piano, the bright Jazz Piano, and the gorgeously resonant Ballad Piano.
Electric pianos and organs
Immediately recognizable from decades of iconic records, the B2N‰۪s electric piano responds to your playing dynamics and even simulates key-off sounds. You‰۪ll find the organ sounds to be perfect for rock and jazz; and as a bonus, the B2 offers the sublime sound of a real, sampled pipe organ.
The B2N connectivity works with a variety of music software and hardware, opening up new possibilities for enjoying your digital piano and creating awesome music.
