AHL sound source
AHL is the acronym for "Acoustic & Highly-compressed Large-wave form", a technology for sound production developed by CASIO. This technology produces extremely realistic reproduction of acoustic instruments, the piano in particular.
Enables dynamic playing by differing sound intensity and sound properties in response to the keystroke. A light, slow stroke sounds soft and gentle, while a hard stroke sounds loud and powerful.
Breaks a compressed chord or separate notes into certain patterns and repeats these. A short, continuous and repetitive series of notes is created.
Input for connecting an audio source such as a CD or MP3 player, via a stereo (mini-headphone plug). The audio source will be audible through the instrument’s speakers, allowing you to play along.
Auto-Harmonize automatically supplements harmonies to notes played by the right hand, giving the melody greater depth.
Digital effect used to double the timbre, making the sound more vibrant, broader and much livelier. This effect is used for digital piano or organ timbres in particular.
As the name suggests, this function allows users to tune the instrument to another instrument, such as an out-of-tune piano.
This function layers two timbres, such as soft piano sounds combined with bowed string instruments, perfectly suited for ballads as well as slow and romantic songs.
The metronome beats in the preset time signature as a guide for keeping to the right tempo.
Input for connecting a dynamic microphone.
Helps when playing well-known songs by allowing the musician to preset elements such as tempo, rhythm and timbre.
This setting shifts the octaves on the keyboard to the more comfortable middle zone when playing pieces of music that require users to play on the very low or high zones of the keyboard.
One Touch Presets
Integrated presets that configure the instrument for playing popular genres — from the French chanson and the Viennese waltz to Latin and Samba.
Digital effect that adds reverberation to the timbre.
Users can modify and adapt existing rhythms using this rhythm editor.
This feature allows users to make short audio recordings, which can then subsequently be played on the keyboard. This function is very entertaining because each recording can be used creatively!
SD card slot
Slot for standard SD memory cards that allows for easy transfer of data between storage medium and instrument.
Tuning based on different scales allows users to play other sequences of semitones and whole tones, which enables them to play in different modes, such as old ecclesiastical modes.
Scaled Hammer Action
"Hammer action" means that the digital piano keyboard is weighted with little hammers to provide realistic touch sensitivity, just like that of a real grand piano.
"Scaled" means that the weight of the keys decreases from the low to the high keys, just like on an acoustic instrument.
Option to divide the keyboard into two zones playing differing timbres, e.g. bass with your left hand and piano or vibraphone with your right hand when playing jazz or swing pieces.
The transpose function shifts the scale on the keyboard by semitones, for instance so that an F would be played on the C key.
Step-Up Lesson system
The CASIO lesson system for keyboards, teaching the parts of a piece for the right and left hands separately before both hands play together. Step-by-step learning enables the song to be fully mastered.
