The Casio AP-470 Celviano digital piano delivers authentic grand piano sound and playability. Celviano instruments feature Casio's Tri-Sensor 88-key scaled hammer action keybed with simulated ebony and ivory keys for a superbly natural acoustic piano playing experience. The sounds are incredibly realistic thanks to Casio's award-winning AiR Sound Source, which utilizes grand piano samples recorded at four dynamic levels to deliver piano sounds with long natural decays and remarkable expression. The AP-470 features 22 built-in sounds that you can split and layer as needed, including two gorgeous stereo grand pianos which breathe with lively damper resonance. And with 256 notes of polyphony, your Celviano can handle even your most complex performances, as they're amplified in all their glory by the AP-470's rich-sounding onboard speaker system.
The Celviano AP-470 includes two world-class grand piano sounds, with variations of each to suit any musical setting. At Sweetwater, we find these sumptuous grand pianos perfect for many genres. Casio's AiR (Acoustic and intelligent Resonator) sound engine delivers incredible piano realism with advanced sympathetic string resonance, which unmasks the complex harmonic interaction between undamped strings. Damper resonance, hammer response, and lid simulation provide even greater detail to capture every nuance of your performances. A total of 22 sounds are onboard, including electric pianos, organs, and other essential instruments. Adjustable Chorus and Brilliance are included along with a Hall Simulator, which places your piano in a virtual concert space of your choosing.
The AP-470 is not only perfect for performance, but also for lessons and practice. Headphone Mode optimizes the pianoâ€™s stereo image for private listening. Duet mode splits the keyboard into two identical pitch ranges, allowing, for instance, a teacher and student to sit side-by-side and play a duet. The onboard Music Library stores 60 songs, with space for ten additional songs of your choice. The Concert Play feature provides ten audio recordings of a full symphony orchestra and lets you play along with the left- and/or right-hand piano parts removed. You can also record your performances using the AP-470â€™s two-track MIDI and audio recorders. The AP-470 connects via class-compliant USB to any Mac, PC, iOS, or Android device without the need for additional drivers.
