There are a total of 22 higher quality instrument sounds on this piano (much better than any other furniture cabinet piano I have played under $2000) including very realistic string symphonies, church & Jazz B3 organs, choirs, guitar, etc, along with 100 realistic sounding drum patterns such as jazz, rock, waltz, big band, Latin, country, boogie, etc) which are not only a lot of fun to play along with, but help piano students to better understand rhythm and timing which are the most difficult things in music to learn in my opinion. This is a very useful feature and I use it all the time in my teaching studio. The CE220 also allows you to layer any two sounds together or split the keyboard with any two sounds, a different one on the left and a different one on the right. One of the more unusual features on this model is a "real-time" volume balance slider on the front control panel that will allow you to balance the volume between two sounds when layered or split. This is very handy when you need to raise or lower the volume of one sound over the other while you are playing so that you can come up with a relative volume balance which suits your musical needs in any given song or performance. No other piano in this price range (including higher prices) have this intuitive feature. Beyond that, the 88-note piano keyboard can be electronically divided into two identical 44-key pianos for 4-hand duet play utilizing the two outer pedals for individual sustain for both keyboards. This is great for student/teacher, parent/child, or for any two people who want to play the piano at the same time playing the exact same notes. Copyright AZPianoNews.com 2014

*Take a look at a Kawai video demonstration for the CE220 here: Kawai CE220 video
Listen to audio sample demos of the CE220 here: CE220 audio demos and make sure you connect a good pair of headphones to your computer as this is a great way to listen to these songs as well as to the video...and this is true for any digital piano you listen to.
