MP11/MP7 Stage Piano software update v1.15 released

Kawai Japan has issued a software update for the MP11/MP7 Stage Pianos.

This recommended v1.15 update changes the Global Transpose behaviour for received MIDI, and fixes issues that could occur when using write-protected USB memory devices.  The update also improves PedalWah effect responsiveness, simplifies naming when saving SETUPs, and adds LED indicators for the Metronome beat.


The full MP11/MP7 v1.15 update changelogs are shown below:


MP11
– Changed: Sounds triggered by received MIDI are no longer affected by the Global Transpose setting.  However, Global Transpose will still affect transmitted MIDI notes.
– Fixed: Changing to a SETUP with Solo mode selected for a MIDI zone could result in the sound being held in rare cases.
– Fixed: Changing to a SOUND with Pedal Wah assigned while the expression pedal is in the lowest position no longer prevents the sound from being heard.
– Fixed: An error screen could become stuck when using a USB memory device with the write protect function enabled.
– Improved: Changing SETUPs with different EFX parameters should be smoother in some cases.
– Improved: When storing a SETUP, the currently selected (displayed) SOUND will be used as the default name.
– Improved: The response of the Pedal Wah EFX is improved.
– Improved: EXIT/EDIT LEDs now indicate the current metronome beat.
