From the video on March 12, 2010:

     Johann Sebastian BACH: March in D major, BWV Anh. 122

the Roland RD-700GX keyboard was upgraded with the K-RD700GX1 SuperNATURAL Piano Kit.

The upgrade kit consists of an expansion board with a new sound engine and a USB stick with a new operating system for the keyboard.

The kit deals with the main problem with digital keyboards: the more or less sudden changes in sound at certain velocities because of the use of for instance 3 patches for each piano tone.

Roland names this new important technology with seamless transitions from low to high velocity (ppp to fff) SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine. Casio names it Linear Morphing System and Yamaha names it Spectral Component Modeling.

From the video on January 05, 2010:

     Erik SATIE: Nocturne No. 2 [v01b]

until recent videos the piano sound might come from a virtual piano (computer software piano).

From march 2018 a Kawai MP11SE digital piano has been used as a controller. The sounds used usually come from virtual software pianos (see list below).
