Kurzweil M1

The Kurzweil M1 is an excellent digital piano for beginners. It is expertly constructed to mimic the sound and playability of an acoustic piano and it has many extra features that give a taste of the full musical possibility of digital pianos. 


The Kurzweil M1 has a full-sized 88-note keyboard. It is fully weighted, which is the most accurate digital reproduction of the natural weight of an acoustic piano’s keys. It is touch sensitive, an essential feature that effects the volume of the note according to the power the key is played with; And it has graded-hammer action, which means the keys are heavier for lower notes and lighter for higher ones, just like an acoustic piano.

There is full transposition capability to any key and three built-in pedals, soft, sostentuto, and sustain.


The M1 has 20 voices, all taken from Kurzweil’s renowned PC3 production stations. Foremost of these is the Triple Strike Grand Piano voice, there is also a selection of electric piano voices and other acoustic instruments from which to choose as well. Split and Layer modes can be activated so that the M1 can use two of these voices together. Split assigns a different voice to each half of the keyboard, and Layer plays both voices over the whole keyboard.

The M1 has 64-notes of polyphony, meaning that up to 64 notes can be sounded at the same time without any dropping-out before they should. This meets the demands of all but the most complex pieces of music.

There are two stereo speakers that give the M1 an amplification of 30W, which is powerful enough for use in a large room without external amplification.


A simple control panel, complete with a scrolling alphanumeric LED display, groups the all the effects buttons together making them easily accessible.

With 29 pre-set drum patterns and 3 user favourite buttons there is plenty of options to play along with. The dual ambience and effects processors, built into the M1, give it excellent reverb and chorus effects. A single track recorder with 4-song capacity enables permanent capture of performances.

A USB type B connection lets the pianist link up to a computer sequencer without the need to install software drivers. There are Aux In/Out ports allowing external speakers and PA systems to be connected to the M1. There are also MIDI In/Out ports and two headphone jacks.
