Feels and sounds like an acoustic piano
The Casio AP-650 has an unprecedented natural reproduction of acoustic piano sounds, and the realistic grand piano feel characteristic of the Celviano series.
When you play the AP-650, it feels like you`re playing an 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 luxurius 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.
In addition to feeling like an acoustic piano, the AP-650 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-650`s installed memory. The rich, resonating tones that are produced by the AP-650 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.
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 AP-650 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, creates 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.
As well as these incredible features specially developed by Casio, the AP-650 digital piano has an array of versatile features as standard. The Lesson Feature, Duet Mode, and Music Library make the AP-650 a digital piano that is suited for both beginners and more practised pianists.
