The Casio AP-260 Celviano marks the entry point into multidimensional AiR-sound synthesis and at the same time into the authentic expressiveness and the natural sound quality of the CELVIANO digital piano. With 18 partly new tones and the new "Concert Play" function, music making becomes a real experience on this first-class cabinet pianoforte. The elegant design is emphasised by the "Ivory Touch" keyboard with its ebony and ivory finish. A must-have for the ambitious beginner.
Multi-dimensional Morphing AiR Sound Source
The grand piano sounds in the Casio AP260 deliver an unprecedented level of realism and expression. Four dynamic levels of stereo piano samples are integrated with Casio's proprietary Linear Morphing System, for a grand piano sound with seamless transitions and a superior dynamic range. For added realism, the Casio AP-260 Digital Piano simulates the sound of open strings when the dampers are raised by the pedal using Acoustic Resonance DSP.
The characteristics of CASIO's newly developed Multi-dimensional Morphing AiR* Sound Source reflect thorough attention to detail in expressing the rich, resonating tones inherent to the piano. The capacity of the installed memory has been expanded to achieve a longer sampling duration and enhanced waveform data quality. The temporal changes in tone that create sound you would expect only from a piano, beginning with the initial sound and leading into a beautiful extension until the sound eventually vanishes, are reproduced naturally
The AP-260 features a total of 18 built-in tones, with the ability to layer two sounds or split the keyboard to allow a bass sound in the left hand. It has a built-in library of 60 songs that can be practiced at any tempo utilizing the dual headphone outputs or the internal speaker system. Celviano's Duet Mode allows student and teacher to practice at the keyboard simultaneously
Natural Playing Feel Approaching That of a Grand Piano Firm Touch That Converts the Player's Thoughts into Sound
Tri-sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II, with a grand piano's unique sounding timing
The difference between the sound structures of a grand piano and an electric piano appears as a difference in timing, from the moment the instrument is played until the sound is audible. The new Tri-sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II responds by incorporating a system with three sensors that detect touches of the keys sequentially.
Simulated ebony and ivory keys with optimal fingertip fit for playing ease
The Simulated ebony and ivory keys offers the luxurious feel and texture as well as the smooth touch of a grand piano keyboard. The minutely detailed crimp surface finish inhibits finger slippage due to sweat and gives the sensation of a perfect fingertip fit, even when playing for extended periods.
Damper Resonance achieving a more naturally beautiful resonance than a pedal
The deep, beautiful resonance resulting from the use of a damper pedal is also reproduced naturally by a stereo resonance simulator installed on all 88 keys, an approach that differs from conventional simulated reproduction employing effect processing. The attention to detail goes so far as to simulate the resonance created by the lifting of the dampers themselves when the pedal is pressed. A continuously variable system*2 has been adopted for the damper pedal, moreover, reproducing even the subtle changes in reverberation that occur in response to the delicate pressure exerted by partial pedal operation. This enables players to employ pedal operation to achieve gracefully expressive performances.
