Features



AiR Sound Source 

When the sounds of a grand piano and digital piano are compared, one notable difference is the variegated reverberations caused by the resonating sounds. Casio's Multi-dimensional Morphing AiR* Sound Source simulates such varied phenomena as the resonance produced when combining the sounds of all 88 keys or when stepping on the pedal, thus enabling reproduction of a grand piano's sound quality. It also realises a wide dynamic range, from a soft pianississimo (ppp) too delicate to express with a conventional didtial piano to a powerful forte shissimo (fff).

*AiR = Acoustic and Intelligent Resonator


 

Selection Between 2 Legendary Grand Piano Sounds

The installed sounds of two world-renowned grand pianos are separately selectable, depending on the genre of the music being played and the performance environment.   

GRAND PIANO 1 - A superior instrument for powerful, richly reverberating performances. It reproduces classic grand piano sounds across the range from soft, delicate tones to strong, powerful tones, depending on the weight of the keystrokes.

GRAND PIANO 2 - This is the right choice for bright, luxuriant performances. It makes its presence felt with crisp, straightforward sound, even when being played in a band. It's tonality is ideally suited to jazz and pop music.
 

 
 









 

Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II 

Three advanced Casio sensors accurately detect keystroke speeds and timing and employ them to realise subtle sounds and performance characteristics that might be expected only from an acoustic piano. The action mechanism emulates the deadweight of piano hammers to realise a natural touch like that of a grand piano, moreover, with heavier strokes required to reproduce low notes and a progressively lighter touch employed as the tones move up the scale.


Concert Play

High quality audio data recordings of live orchestra performances are installed. Pianists can play along with the recordings and enjoy the feeling of participating in a magnificent performance. Musical scores of the concerts are bundled.



Simulated Ebony and Ivory Feel Keys

Simulated ebony and ivory keys inhibit finger slippage due to sweat and produce the sensation of a comfortable fingertip fit that lasts even through extended sessions.
