De nouveaux modèles avec un design repensé, des fonctionnalités améliorées et une source sonore innovante.

Série CT-X
Les quatre modèles de la gamme CT-X, CT-X5000, CT-X3000, CT-X800 et CT-X700, possèdent la nouvelle source sonore AiX*, qui tire parti de l'expertise technologique de CASIO pour les pianos numériques. La nouvelle source sonore reproduit les caractéristiques des sonorités des instruments acoustiques et est huit fois plus puissante que les précédents modèles équivalents. Une attention particulière a été portée durant le développement sur le comportement du son naturel des instruments acoustiques, comme les pianos, les cordes, les instruments à vent et les percussions. De plus, le nouveau système audio des CT- X5000 et CT-X3000 génère un son particulièrement puissant.
D'autres fonctionnalités viennent compléter les nouveaux CT-X700 et CT-X800 : 600 sonorités, 195 rythmes, commande de synchronisation et arrêt du rythme, fonction de frappe du tempo et le bouton de « gel » des paramètres. Le CT-X800 est également doté d'un port pour clé USB et une molette pitch bend.
Les modèles CT-X5000 et CT-X3000 sont dotés de 800 sonorités, 235 rythmes et de nombreuses fonctionnalités permettant de créer vos propres morceaux et arrangements comme par exemple un éditeur de sonorités, un séquenceur de motifs et un enregistreur de phrase avec quatre pads.
Le CT-X700 (249€*) sera disponible à partir de mi-février 2018 et le CT-X800 (229€*) sera disponible à partir de mi-mars 2018 dans certains points de ventes.

CELVIANO AP-470
Le nouveau AP-470 de la gamme CELVIANO offre un nouveau toucher ainsi qu'un tout nouveau design. Le couvercle du clavier a été repensé, de même que l'accessibilité aux boutons des fonctionnalités, qui sont maintenant situés sur le côté gauche du clavier.
Le piano AP-470 possède 22 sonorités, dont deux nouvelles qui reproduisent celles de pianos à queue.
Comme son prédécesseur, l'AP-470 comporte un couvercle sur le dessus piano pouvant s'ouvrir. Ses autres fonctionnalités sont : un Simulateur d'Acoustiques comprenant la résonnance damper, la résonnance des cordes, le simulateur d'ouverture du couvercle et le simulateur du bruit des touches. L'ensemble est complété par un égaliseur de volume, un mode casque et système d'amplification de 40W.
De plus, vous avez la possibilité de contrôler votre piano depuis votre tablette ou smartphone** à l'aide de l'application gratuite « Chordana Play for Pianos »

CASIO presents keyboard novelties at Musikmesse Frankfurt

  • CASIO introduces standard and lighted keys keyboards
  • New features such as "Dance Music Mode" to remix and create new tracks
  • Launch of the new free app "Chordana Play". Further info at www.chordana-play.eu
  • More information available at www.casio-music.com

Norderstedt, Germany, April 4th, 2017. At this year's Musikmesse in Frankfurt, CASIO presents its new standard keyboards CTK-3500, CTK-2500 and CTK-1500, as well as the lighted keys keyboards LK-265 and LK-135. All new models are equipped with the „Dance Music Mode“ which makes it easy to create own music and mix it with music styles like House, Dance and EDM. Addtionally, the „Dance Music Mode“ features four phrase patterns, four different sound effects, and the Build-Up Play function which gives selfmade tracks their finishing touch.

The CTK-2500 and CTK-1500 are, like their predecessors CTK-2400 and CTK-1300, ideal for beginners and assist users with the „Lesson Lite“ learning system. The LK-135 with key lighting system provides an ideal start on how to play the keyboard as well. Equipped with 400 sounds and over 100 rhythms, the CTK-3500 and the LK-265 are perfect for a bit more advanced players. With the "Step-Up-Lesson" learning system, both models are ideal tools for keyboard practice.

Ideal supplement for more fun while learning: The "Chordana Play" app
The keyboards CTK-3500, CTK-2500 and LK-265 can be connected with the new "Chordana Play" app, which was developed by CASIO and is available for iOS and Android since March, by using a smartphone, tablet or smart devices. The free app assists beginners in learning how to play a keyboard and enables advanced users to expand their repertoire and add Standard MIDI files to their music library.

The app is easy to use: If the keyboard is played while the app is connected, the user can see in real time which keys are to be pressed to match the current piece of music with the Piano-Roll display. Depending on the keyboard, the lighted key function can also be used to support the learning process. 50 Play-along songs are included in the "Chordana Play" app. All information on the app can be found at www.chordana-play.eu.

Visitors of Musikmesse Frankfurt can find CASIO at hall 9.0/B20.

Casio to Expand Lineup of CELVIANO Grand Hybrid Digital Pianos
Clad in a Natural White Wood Finish; Featuring a New Elegant Design, Wooden Keys, and Three Historic Grand Piano Sounds

Tokyo, September 28, 2016 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today that it will release the GP-300WE, a new elegantly designed digital piano model with a natural white wood finish, in its CELVIANO Grand Hybrid lineup. CELVIANO Grand Hybrid pianos combine the advantages of both digital and acoustic pianos while delivering the performance of a grand piano in tone, keyboard quality and playing comfort.

Casio previously released three pianos in this lineup since 2015 to 2016—the GP-500BP, GP-400 and GP-300BK. All were equipped with the Casio AiR* Grand Sound Source, which reproduces the same beautiful sound and rich reverberation as a grand piano, and keys made from spruce, a wood used in grand piano keyboards. These models also featured piano tones jointly developed with the piano maker C. Bechstein. The natural Grand Hammer Action Keyboard has an action mechanism that faithfully simulates piano hammer movements, which have a significant impact on the playing response of a grand piano. These innovative hybrid pianos moved beyond the realm of the conventional digital piano, and gained a strong reputation among people who appreciate the nuanced sound and feel of a grand piano.
*Acoustic & Intelligent Resonator

The new GP-300WE comes with the three historically popular grand piano sounds featured in the GP-500BP, GP-400 and GP-300BK, as well as the same reliable key response and supple playing comfort. New with the GP-300WE is the design, which features a natural white wood finish for both the body and stand, producing a bright yet elegant ambiance that is quite different from that of the black wood finish of the GP-300BK. The use of a sophisticated natural white wood finish expresses the character of the CELVIANO Grand Hybrid, which is designed to faithfully represent the tone, keyboard and playing comfort of a grand piano. The GP-300WE will be available in stores as of November 2016.

Main Features of the GP-300WE

Thoroughly refined sound and reverberation reminiscent of a grand piano
  • The AiR Grand Sound Source reproduces the same beautiful sound and rich reverberation as a grand piano.
    Multi-dimensional Morphing smoothly transforms sound waves, and realizes tonal changes based on both time passage and intensity. Even during a gradual crescendo from pianissimo to fortissimo, the technology allows even and natural tonal changes.

    Moreover, the String Resonance System, designed to deliver the string resonance of a grand piano, controls the amount and combination of resonance according to the playing situation. By producing reverberation that fits each of the 88 keys, the technology enables natural and comfortable performance.

    By combining these two technologies, the new model offers the sounds of three grand piano styles. The Berlin Grand is known for its elegant clear sound and reverberation that gives each performance rich melodic color, while the Hamburg Grand delivers gorgeous power and strength with a lot of string resonance. The Vienna Grand provides calm bass with a solid feeling along with soft and beautiful sound.

  • Natural Grand Hammer Action Keyboard enables even more delicate expression
    The GP-300WE features keys made from high-quality spruce, which is also used in grand piano keyboards. The keys are also finished in the same way as on a grand piano. Since this makes them more familiar to the pianist, fingers are less likely to slip or fatigue. The new model also boasts a unique action mechanism that delivers the right hammer movement, which has a big impact on the playing response of a grand piano. The mechanism conveys delicate finger nuances more accurately, and enables dynamic touch to translate directly into expressive power.

  • Grand Acoustic System generates a space of three-dimensional sound
    Casio has developed a Grand Acoustic System that faithfully represents the sound of a grand piano as it emanates from above and below the soundboard. Through careful positioning of six speakers and the creation of sound pathways, the system delivers three-dimensional sound with tonal elongation, expansion and depth.

Special playing experiences made possible by a digital piano
  • Concert Play offers an experience like playing with an orchestra
    The spectacular sound of a live orchestra is recorded in a high-quality digital format. By playing the piano together with the recorded orchestra, users can enjoy the feeling as if they are performing with an orchestra. The technology can also be used in practice, as it allows the tempo to be slowed, and also features rewind, fast forward, and repeat playback of A-B sections.

  • Hall Simulator provides the experience of performing in a special venue such as a concert hall
    The Hall Simulator allows the pianist to enjoy the immersive sound found in different types of venues such as an Amsterdam church, or a classical concert hall in Berlin. Also, the GP-300WE enables users to switch between the Player's Position, which provides a sense of playing a real grand piano, and three types of Listener's Positions, which gives the pianist the effect of listening to the performance from the audience.
