When you play the Scaled Hammer Action Keys of the Casio AP-450 Celviano Digital Piano, it feels like you’re playing a real acoustic piano. The Tri-sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard responds to the players touch with three sensors that detect the touch of keys sequentially. The simulated ebony and ivory keys offer a luxurious texture and smooth touch of a grand piano keyboard. The minute crimp of the surface finish means that the keys have a perfect fingertip fit, even when you’re playing for extended lengths of time.

Multi-dimensional Morphing AiR Sound Source

In addition to feeling like an acoustic piano, the AP-450 sounds like one too. All 88 keys incorporate a stereo resonance simulator, and are able to give remarkably realistic sounds taken from enhanced waveform data sampling, stored on the AP-450’s installed memory. The rich, resonating tones that are produced by the AP-450 are due to Casio’s Multi-dimensional Morphing AiR Sound Source. The improvements Casio have made to the memory of the Celviano series mean that it can produce the natural tones you’d only expect from an acoustic piano, beginning with the initial sound and leading into a beautiful extension until the sound eventually vanishes.

Pack with more Features as Standard

The damper resonance achieves a deeper and more naturally beautiful resonance than a pedal, the subtle changes in reverberation occur in response to the delicate pressure exerted by even partial pedal operation The Key Off and Lid Simulator features on the Casio AP-450 contribute to its convincing acoustic piano sound. The new keyboard system reproduces the nuances that occur from the speed at which you release each key, created even more authentic reverberations. The volume and quality of the sound change when the lid on a grand piano is raised or lowered. The lid simulator allows you to select the degree to which the lid is open or closed, providing you with even more options for differing sounds.
