Mark 152i Overview
Downloads and support materials maintained here as a courtesy to owners.
If you are looking for the ultimate in digital pianos, the Mark 152i is your only choice.
A digital piano designed in an authentic Young Chang grand piano cabinet, the Mark 152i offers the features of the Mark 12 in a grand cabinet. Features include sustain, sostenuto and soft pedals, a Boston-style fallboard, and an 88-note weighted keyboard with three degree tilt, just like the finest concert grand pianos. Its comfortable and supportive grand piano bench opens for additional storage. This unique instrument is available in a wide variety of finishes to complement any lifestyle or decor.
Many New Sounds and Styles
The Mark 152i includes 325 unequaled sampled sounds that continue the Kurzweil tradition of the finest sound quality in the industry. The Mark 152 features a superb Concert Grand Piano; new French Horns; snare drum with brushes; harmon-muted trumpet; arpeggiated or solo harp; pizzicato strings; banjo; nylon string guitar and hundreds more sounds on which the best composers and arrangers in the music business rely.
In addition, the Mark 152i offers 64 user-editable auto-accompaniment styles. We hired some of the best arrangers working today to create the most realistic sounding styles on ANY digital instrument. These styles are undoubtedly the finest Kurzweil has ever produced. We've made it so easy to use that Mark 152i owners can even create their own styles.
Unique, Exciting Features
The Mark 152's display provides easy-to-read, "no jargon" text, with intuitive menu choices. Its a snap to use everything the Mark 152 offers. With the Mark 152, it's easy to find the sound you want. Simply push a button to get to your favorite instrument, or press the "menu select" button for a list of sounds related to the category you've chosen. And with the Mark 152's disk drive, you don't have to wait while a song loads from a disk - the Mark 152 can read a song directly from the disk and play it - like a CD player. And just like a CD player, you can play songs in order or randomly shuffle-play them. The Mark12's innovative Edu-Games feature encourages everyone to have fun by sharpening their skills while learning important musical concepts. Edu-Games include harmonic, melodic and rhythmic ear training games. There is also a scale tester and chord dictionary which helps you learn your scales and chords. This is a $400 additional software package not available anywhere else. We built it into the Mark 152!
Now Anyone Can Play the Mark 152i
This exclusive feature means exactly what it says: ANYONE can play. The Mark 152i makes every note sound right. Use Anyone Can Play with auto-accompaniments; or Kurzweil's Interactive Music Disk Collection. With Anyone Can Play, even a non-musician can get full enjoyment from the Mark 152i.
The Mark 152i features an easy to use 16-track recorder/sequencer. The Mark 152i's Flash ROM insures against system obsolescence. As Kurzweil develops new and better software, Flash ROM offers you permanent system upgrades- AND THEY'RE FREE.
Unique Programmable Drawbar Organ
The Mark 152i's Drawbar Organ feature enables you to program and save your own custom organ registrations. Unlike other instruments which limit you to a fixed number of organ presets, the Mark 152i's organ is limitless.
Beautiful Real Wood Finishes
If you are a church musician or jazz player, this is the digital ensemble instrument for you. Like the highly successful Mark 150, the Mark 152i is available in a variety of Real Wood Finishes to complement any decor. The cabinet and audio system have been custom co-designed with world-renowned Boston Acoustics to provide the finest sounding digital ensemble you have ever heard.
The Head of Our Mark Series Family
As the Flagship of Kurzweil's Mark Series and in keeping with our desire to present a continuous line of quality digital instruments, all sequences, song disks, style disk and SoundByte libraries created for or on the Mark 10, Mark 150, and Mark 150 Plus will work perfectly on the Mark 152i.
An Outstanding Audio System
Both Kurzweil and our Mark Series have a long-standing reputation for superb audio quality. In the Mark 152i, our dedication to perfection is taken to its greatest extent, with the combination of our acclaimed sounds and our most sophisticated audio system. The Mark 152i literally fills the room with rich, beautiful, instrumental sounds.
The audio system features seven independent amplifiers and speakers, custom-designed to emulate a real acoustic grand piano - with the lid open or closed - so effectively that it is almost impossible for listeners to believe that they are not hearing an acoustic instrument.
The Mark 152i also features transposition and tuning functions; continuous volume, bass and treble controls; and two headphone jacks.
