The XE20 is a new digital piano that features an 88-note natural-touch keyboard and contains two full concert grand pianos. It also includes automatic accompaniment so users can go from practicing their favorite songs to truly performing them at the touch of a button.
A complete array of auto accompaniment Styles can be accessed with your left hand, giving you the backing of a full band that you control completely. Play chords, and XE20 will follow your changes in any Style you select. Change variations with a single touch. Add fills wherever you want. Add a melody with your right hand.
It’s a completely live and in-the-moment way of performing!
Two distinct concert grand piano sounds
XE20’s German Piano is sourced from one of the most famous pianos makers in the world; beloved by numerous pianists for its versatile expressive power. It is distinctive for its bold tonality together with a brilliant high register and nuanced low range. The Italian Piano is also famous world-wide for its rich resonances and sensitivity to players’ styles. These two sounds will give you a nuanced choice to help you get the most out of your playing experience.
Perform with an extensive variety of sounds
In addition to its stunning pianos, the XE20 provides a versatile collection of more than 700 expressive and authentic sounds, including electric pianos, organs, synth pads, brass, strings, drum kits, and much more, all sampled from actual acoustic and digital instruments. Each of these realistic sounds can be played live or used as part of XE20’s automatic accompaniments.
Automatic accompaniments take your performances further
XE20 is equipped with an automatic accompaniment function called "Styles," which lets you automatically produce a full backing band simply by playing one finger or a chord in the left hand. This accompaniment will change according to the keyboard location or chord that you play, making it easy to create simple improvisations just by using your right hand to play a melody along with the accompaniment.
More than 280 different styles are provided for musical genres from around the world, and each style includes four variations ranging from simple to complex, plus an intro and an ending for the beginning and end of the song. You can use these buttons to switch between these variations in time with the rhythm to add variety to your performances.
And, since the XE20 has the same 88-note keyboard as a grand piano, you can enjoy duets with a family member or friend.
Powered-up speakers for powerful playback
XE20’s speakers have been redesigned to provide plenty of power and clarity as well. This new playback system also improves the overall balance, so that even when automatic accompaniment is enabled, the low frequencies of the drums and bass will be present while allowing the piano to shine through.
A keyboard with the touch of an acoustic piano
The XE20 features a graded weighted hammer action keyboard to provide a true acoustic piano fee; lower keys feel heavier and get lighter as you play upward. The keyboard is finely balanced, providing a natural, effortless playing experience.
