Korg SV-2 Stage Vintage Piano is a big further development with more sounds (ten times), memory slots, polyphony, and more control options.
The leak of the SV-2 keyboard for NAMM 2020 is also true. As I already said in the leak, it’s a major upgrade of this well-known stage piano from Korg. Highlight of the new version is the expanded sound content that is now 10 times bigger than on the predecessor SV-1: more pianos, keyboard, synth, and acoustic sounds. Especially, the piano section has been massively upgraded with German, Italian, Austrian, Japanese and Upright piano samples.
It offers also more polyphony (80 to 128). The Korg SV-2 can now split and layer sounds via the editor, with selectable split points right on the panel. This is another big request from many SV-1 users.
Korg SV-2P With Speakers
The new version will come in three versions: black, silver and in a special SV-2P version. This will included a custom-designed, integrated K-ARRAY stereo speaker system for connection-free sound anywhere. All versions will feature Korg’s premium RH3 graded hammer action keyboard and will be available in a 73 and 88 keys version.
While keeping basic concepts, such as the acclaimed tonal character and straightforward, knob-based sound creation and selection, Korg responded to user feedback and to the changing needs of the live musician by featuring enhanced piano and electric piano sounds, with the addition of a plethora of other vintage keyboard sounds that make the new SV-2 a toolbox full of attic keyboard instruments. At the touch of a button, user can access the most outstanding grand piano sounds from around the world –including exemplary pianos from the leading German, Italian, Austrian, and Japanese instrument makers.
