B1 Digital Piano Lab

The Korg B1 Digital Piano Lab is compact and cost-effective, and is an excellent choice for the classroom. The streamlined design delivers the features most important to any pianist: an authentic touch, superior sound and ease of use.

All of the Korg Lab Solutions are designed around the GEC5 Group Education Controller group audio controller, a cost-effective stereo digital audio routing system. Suitable for any teaching level and any combination of electronic instruments, (keyboards, guitars, sound modules, computer soundcards, etc.) the GEC5 allows teachers to interact with as many as 32 individual student stations at once, or up to 64 students with one Teacher Unit.

The B1 Digital Piano is equipped with KORG’s NH (Natural Weighted Hammer) keyboard action, which provides a heavier touch in the lower registers, transitioning to a lighter touch in the upper regions—just as on a traditional piano. The Korg B1 is available with the standard 88-keys and is ideal for classrooms that will be focusing on music theory, composition and proper piano technique. The B1 Digital Piano features eight different sounds: three flavors of acoustic piano are provided along with two electric pianos, a harpsichord, and two organ sounds—each delivered with precise realism. This set of frequently used sounds lets you expand your repertoire to cover many genres. The dedicated PIANO PLAY button instantly recalls the Concert Grand Piano sound.

The B1 Digital Piano Lab is available for classrooms of any size, up to 32 individual student stations, or 64 stations if you “split” the piano to allow for two students per keyboard.

The GEC5 features three chief modes of operation; Lecture, Practice and Group. In Lecture Mode, students hear the teacher's microphone and instrument as well as their own instruments. In Practice Mode, students hear only his or her own instrument and the teacher has the option of eavesdropping or initiating two-way communication. In Group Mode, students can listen to the instruments and microphones of other group members.

The Korg B1 Digital Piano Lab additionally can include a teacher's station work desk, a pair of studio monitors for the instructor, a set of microphone-equipped Koss SB40 headphones, and all of the cabling you’ll need to connect the system together. Each student station is equipped with an instrument, an GEC5 Student Interface Unit and a microphone-equipped Koss SB40 headset. The GEC5 Student Interface Unit connects to the GEC5 using Cat5 cable, as well as to the student's instrument and headset.
