Casio's AiR sound source
Thanks to Casio's Acoustic and Intelligent Resonator (Air) technology, you can experience the unprecedented tone of a grand piano. Now boasting an expanded memory module, the AiR can achieve longer samples than previous models. What does this mean for you? Longer samples decay more naturally without any looping or any other artificial effects.
When you play a grand piano, the sound you hear is not from one single note. Other strings with associated frequencies will resonate as well, adding their sound to provide a uniquely rich resonance. Casio has digitally mastered this response to ensure every performance is expressively unique. All 88 keys will continuously respond to the power behind each stroke. Every nuance of a pianissimo phrase, followed by the intensity of a fortississimo phrase will be replicated with exquisite detail. So whether you're reciting Debussy or Rachmaninoff, you can perform a truly organic experience.
Chordana Play for Piano app
Casio understands that technology plays a large part in education, and learning to play the piano is no exception! Now you can connect your smartphone or tablet to your piano via a USB cable to unlock a wealth of educational features. You can choose between the 60 included PDFs of sheet music on the Chordana Play for Piano app, or you can even add your own PDF files. When connected via USB, you can configure your single or triple pedal unit as a page turner, enabling you to concentrate on the performance. If you're looking to gain insight into the individual pieces and composers, then the app also has built-in descriptions listed from the PTNA (Piano Teachers' National Association).
For a more interactive approach, the Chordana Play for Piano app features MIDI files which enables you to play in a piano roll window. With 201 different songs to choose from, this library includes music which even beginners can enjoy listening to and perform. Change the tempo, transpose to an easier key, or even use the AB repeat function to master small parts of the song which you're struggling with. You can even take lessons using the on-screen keyboard and track your progress using a scoring system! And if that's not enough, you can import your own MIDI files so you can play along with your favourite music.
But the Chordana Play for Piano app isn't just for learning. When you connect your Casio piano, you can now use your smartphone or tablet to finetune a multitude of features. You can control main settings such as what voice you are using, metronome settings, and reverb settings quickly and efficiently. If you're really wanting to tweak your tone, then you can start to experiment with hammer response, string response, lid settings, layering options, split keyboard, recording settings, plus much more! Head over to the Casio website to find out more.
The Casio AP 470 features Casio's Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action II keyboard. Thoughtfully designed to deliver the most natural and authentic playing experience, the AP 470 is meticulously engineered to recreate the weight, touch, and resistance of a grand piano.
The digital piano is made with simulated Ebony and Ivory textured keys, replicating the touch and playability of an acoustic grand piano. And thanks to the all-new tri-sensor system, you can accurately capture the tonal character of your performance with the AP 470. Casio's AP 470 allows you to perform with total depth, character, and strength.
For quiet listening, the AP 470 now has two headphone outputs which are located on the front of the instrument. For those who are performing with other amplification, the AP 470 also features 1/4" left and right line outputs on the rear panel. The AP 470 continues Casio’s tradition of providing "class compliant" USB connectivity on Celviano digital pianos. This enables the AP 470 to be used with Mac or Windows computers without the need for downloading drivers. Class Compliant USB MIDI also enables the AP 470 to be used as a controller with the Apple iPad simply with the use of Apple’s Camera Connection Kit.
