Broadway BG2 Digital Baby Grand Piano (polished ebony or white) with wooden keys – also plays songs by itself
“The Broadway BG2 baby grand digital piano has a vibrant, resonant piano sound, a realistic fully-weighted key touch with wooden keys and an beautiful looking cabinet (polished ebony or polished white) which takes up less space than it appears. Due to its large speakers, the sound can easily fill up a medium to large size room”, Graham Howard – Piano Advisor
Real Orchestra Sound Source ‘ROS Version 5’
To achieve a more authentic sound, the 32MB new ROS version 5 was developed. The Broadway BG2 has a huge 32MB stereo sound source including a 12MB grand piano sound plus 20MB realistic orchestra sounds. All piano sampling is done in stereo to preserve the natural imaging of the sound. Different dynamic levels are copied from a real, acoustic concert grand piano. This enhances the sound.
ARHA-3W Graded Hammer Action Keyboard with wooden keys
RHA (Real Hammer Action) simulates the natural touch and playing performance of an acoustic grand piano. It offers a smooth and responsive feel. The keyboard is wooden, so it emulates the real touch of a grand piano, and it doesn’t use springs, instead its action is provided by hammer weight, which gives it an authentic piano feel.
The BG2 uses the same key action as the much higher priced self-playing piano MK11.
Conventional digital pianos quickly run out of notes when playing complex music. But the Broadway BG2 offers a maximum 256-note polyphony, so there’s no chance you can run out of notes.
SMF Player with SD Memory Card
Simply select an SMF file for playback and watch the automatic keyboard as it plays the music. The Broadway BG2 houses a SD card, so you can input music data from a SD memory card. The SMF player allows you to enjoy the player piano without any modification of the SMF file.
Downloading Files to the SD Card
There are several file sharing sites which allow for download of MIDI files to load onto your SD Card.
Try this site and look for files with extensions that are .smf (Standard Midi File).
Also look at several other sites on google for Standard Midi Files that will also play on the Broadway BG2.
Download and save your midi files onto your computer from one of these sites.
Now you will need to insert an SD Card Reader into your Computer, insert the Blue SD Card into the reader and then drag and drop the files onto the SD Card Device icon displayed on your desktop. Once loaded, insert the blue SD card into the reader slot back on the BG2 itself and hit the ‘SD CARD’ button on the piano. Using your DATA WHEEL, select SAVE RECORDED SONG – and away you go!

Real Orchestra Sound Version.
The sound source combines Broadway’s innovative and unique sampling technology
with the sound of finest European grand pianos to produce its refreshingly new sound.
With Broadway’s innovative and unique sampling technology in one pocket, and the sound of
finest European grand pianos in the other, the sound source now enjoys a new birth in
its refreshingly new sounds.
Due to the sampling technology Broadway is able to offer a uniquely expressive tone
color, its sound deeply resonating with its player providing the most satisfactory
Equipped with the sounds of top tier European grand pianos, it employs the large-capacity
MLFSS (Multi Layered Full Scale Sound) to offer its two distinguished grand piano voices.
One button click is all that takes to pick your choice that suits your music.
These quality grand piano voices could serve many kinds of musical interests.
Supporting high-capacity memory and diverse expression
The abundant sound of a digital piano requires a memory space that is large enough to contain the high-resolution
Broadway’s sound supports a total of 8Gb of memory in order to store all its large-sized MLFSS (Multi Layered
Full Scale Sound) and MLS (Multi Layered Sound) sources.
The Multi Layered Full Scale Sound, with its extremely large data size, assigns separate sample data to
each portion of dynamic range which is divided into many levels, allowing natural expression of forte and piano. To
play it is like to have many different types of high-end grand pianos in one hand, due to its inclusion of diverse
grand piano sounds with differing characters.
With this wide selection of grand piano voices, all genres and styles ranging from 18th century Baroque to
contemporary music are fully covered, its expression more accurately in the character of the style.
The deeply resounding resonance of the grand piano
When a grand piano is played it produces a variety of different sounds that are not directly resulting from the
keystroke – the product of various resonance phenomenon. Broadway captures each of them into its digital pianos in
order to provide more authentic piano-playing experience.
This feature, called the Acoustic Simulator, allows to closely emulate the characteristics of acoustic piano sounds.
String resonance, damper resonance, damper samples and key-off sounds are all included in the samples as to
bring the sensational experience of hearing the sound of a concert grand in a resonance-optimized concert hall.
The string resonance emulates the vibrations of sympathetic strings that occur when playing a
grand piano. While a note is being held down, playing an additional note whose frequency is a
multiple of the first one causes all strings sympathetic with that overtone series to vibrate.
This resonance effect is applied to the sounds so that the authentic grand piano sound is
replicated allowing for fully resonant harmony.
The damper resonance refers to the particular resonance effect that takes place when using the
damper pedal. When the pedal is pressed all dampers inside the piano are lifted from the
strings, and it is the sound resulting from the interaction between notes and dampers that is
sampled. Differing effects are provided depending on the depth the pedal is pressed.
Also, the damper samples capture the natural vibrations of all free strings except the ones played, with the dampers
raised above the strings.
The Key-off sound emulates the subtle sound that occurs as a key is released. It recreates the sound of dampers
falling back onto their respective strings as the pianist releases his or her hand off the keys, allowing for more
These in-depth resonance and other subtle components of piano sound, along with the brand
new enhanced keyboards of Broadway, are designed to provide natural playing experience,
embellished with all-natural touch, response and sound.
256 Maximum Polyphony
Larger number of maximum polyphony allows a digital piano to play more notes simultaneously without running out
of handling capacity which causes loss of earlier notes.
Broadway supports maximum 256 notes of polyphony, which is enough to fully support the performance by
Equalizer System for Customizing
Broadway’s equalizer system divides the full frequency range of piano sounds into four
levels consisting of high (~2.6KHz), middle-high (~1KHz), middle-low (~300Hz) and
low (~115Hz), and allows to adjust the volume of each frequency range independently.
8 types of preset EQ is included, as well as the option to fully customize your own
frequency-volume settings, and you are free to perform with the sound of your choice.
Conveys the feeling of real keys that every pianist desires.
It was born with the sole objective of creating a keyboard as close as possible
to acoustic piano keys, and presents the best qualities of acoustic key touch on a
digital piano. Enjoy the sensation, with the new generation of Broadway digital pianos.
Before making it to the keys, the wood used goes through processes identical with those
that are used to create acoustic piano keys, then is subjected to careful inspection.
This detailed process ensures that the keys would be of fine quality and close to the
feel, weight and touch of acoustic piano keys.
Graded Key Hammer Action
In order to better represent the touch response of acoustic piano keys, the
keys grow in weight as it moves towards the bass and vice versa, allowing
the pianist more natural control over the keys.
Triple Sensor System
The triple sensor system is a creation of Broadway’s technical expertise, allows
extremely fine key movements to speak out. Equipped with three sensors that keep track of the
subtlest movements of the keys, it reacts more sensitively to the movement of its keys
and translates that motion into a realistic and breathing piano performance.
USB TO HOST & DEVICE
1. Convenient MIDI Access
Connect to a computer or an external MIDI device via USB MIDI using the USB TO HOST
terminal to gain access to all MIDI related projects and performances.
2. Recording and Playing
Recording is easily accessible by connecting to external devices (computers, tablets or
smartphones) via USB audio, and playing recorded material is just as simple. The piano is
also capable of playing music files stored in an MP3 player.
*The USB features support Windows/Mac/iOS/Android systems. Actual compatibility may vary
depending on the specific version and the types of the app.
Pianists control the amount of sustain they get when using the damper pedal by adjusting how
deep they press it. In order to further enhance playing experience, Broadway incorporates the
half pedal feature which is designed to respond to the depth of the pedal to provide the players
with the ability to perform the delicate control that they exercise on acoustic pianos.
Volume Control of Resonance Effects
The acoustic grand is a source of many different resonance phenomenon. Having captured these subtle elements of
piano sound into its digital lineups, Broadway also offers the option to control the strength of these various
resonance effects so that anyone would be able to set up the configuration that suits oneself.
– Damper Resonance Volume Control
– String Resonance Volume Control
– Damper Resonance Sound Volume Control
– Key-off Sound Volume Control
– Mechanical Noise Sound Volume Control
Acoustic grand pianos have some variations in the frequencies of overtones depending on the tension and stiffness
of the strings, and a unique tuning method called stretched tuning is employed to compensate for it. This method
tunes the low notes lower than their actual pitches and the high notes higher, addressing the balance between the
overtones of notes and therefore reducing the dissonance that occurs as multiple notes are played simultaneously.
Once fully set, the full configuration (voices, parameters etc.) of the piano may be stored to one of the registration
memory slots to be recalled later for future access. A performer may recall his/her favorite configuration with
Auto Power Off
In order to conserve energy and reduce power consumption, Broadway pianos are equipped with auto power
management system that turns the power off following 30 minutes of inactivity.
The smart box is located on the top of the panel for ergonomic concerns, facilitating convenient
connections with external devices and easier access to smart features.
