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.
Battery operation possible
Instead of plugging it in, the instrument can be operated with the correct batteries.
This function displays chords with lighted keys or chords on the display to support the learning of new chords or pieces of music.
Delay is an echo-like effect that gives the timbre more depth and three-dimensionality.
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.
Function that allows users to learn pieces of music in a fun way, by having their playing rated according to the number of mistakes made. Multiple players can test themselves in the form of a competition.
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.
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.
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.
