Studiologic Numa X Piano 73 - Review, Introduction!

Hello everyone,

Today I would like to tell you something about the Studiologic Numa X Piano. Of course you can also find sounds for this in the shop. I will write something about the quality of the sounds later.

In the video below you will find a complete overview of the possibilities and operation of the Numa X piano.

The Numa We have a 73 and 88 keyboard with the new Fatar TP110 with aftertouch. This keyboard is a further development of the TP100, which is described as very mixed in many forums. Only a very small group of people felt really satisfied with it. I myself have the TP100 here in the Studiologic SL73 master keyboard, so a direct comparison.

The improvements are really noticeable. Certainly still not for everyone, but for me it's significantly better than the TP100. So in that regard, you've done everything right!

There is also the 88 GT variant with the Fatar TP400 Wood, which is a significantly different caliber. I haven't played it in the Numa yet, but I know from other devices that it's really a step forward. This is not only bought with the higher price, but also with a significantly higher weight.

Since I was looking for something small and, above all, light, the only option for me was the Numa 73. And it's really super handy and, above all, only weighs 11.7 kg.

A sustain pedal is also included in the scope of delivery. I really like using the VFP1 anyway, so that's even nicer.
Accessories include a music stand and a plate for a laptop or another controller, for example. Important: They are not the same as the SL series. This is something to keep in mind as the back is very different.

Also nice: If you have an 88 version, you can also attach the Mixface from Studiologic magnetically to the device. The same applies to the SL and it works very well with the 73 too. But I built a holder for the Numa 73 with which you can also use the Mixface here.

There is also a nice editor. I also present this in the video below.

A highlight is definitely that there are four inputs and even a 2x2 USB audio interface. This means you can also use the key wonderfully for a computer-based system or for small gigs with a guitar and singer as a mixer.

The MIDI capabilities are not quite at the level of the SL series, but you can cover a lot with it. That's also one of the reasons why I bought it, because I was extremely impressed with the SL as a master keyboard.

Let's come to the sound: There are some pre-installed and you can also load sounds: including samples. This is done in a format from Studiologic and currently you can only load sounds from them. I have hope that they might break it down, but that's probably unrealistic.

I don't even want to go into every single sound, because you can find plenty of examples online. Most of the sounds are ok, but nothing more. For me it is absolutely sufficient, but if you know the Nords or YCs from Yamaha you might be disappointed. So the box plays best!

You can also import and export presets via the editor. And that's exactly how you get my sounds into the device. You can find a little over 10 sounds in the shop and most of them are really usable. For me this is also a backup solution for my computer setup!

Personally, I can definitely recommend the device to you if you are sure about the area of ​​application!
