Casio PX-560 Privia 88-Key Digital Piano (Sapphire)
The sapphire PX-560 Privia 88-Key Portable Digital Piano from Casio features built-in speakers, a Color Touch Interface with a bright, 5.3" full-color touchscreen, a Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action II keyboard, and has an Acoustic and Intelligent Resonator (AiR), which provides accurate instrument modeling with a high level of sonic detail. It is a suitable keyboard for both professional and intermediate level players, and can be used for a variety of applications such as live performance, recording, practice at home, and more.
The PX-560 is the latest edition to Casio's Privia Pro Line. It features many of the sound design elements of the PX-5S but adds new tones, and user-programmable rhythms all centered around the 5.3" Color Touch Interface. The keyboard has the touch and response of a concert grand piano despite its lighter weight. The keys feel heavier in the lower register and lighter up top, just like a real grand piano. The ebony and ivory textured keys give your hands a positive grip to keep your hands playing on point.
Furthermore, the PX-560 includes 550 tones that cover a huge variety of musical instruments such as guitars, basses, strings, drums, and much more. There are over 220 rhythms available to accompany your playing. The built-in Rhythm Editor allows you to assemble 30 customized User Rhythms using various basslines, drum grooves, and other accompaniment parts. You can create splits and layers with four zones and a total of 14 layers at once. And with 256 notes of polyphony, you won't have to worry about dropped notes. There is an effects system to also add more polish to your sound.
When inspiration strikes, the PX-560 is able to record quickly to a USB stick. In addition, its USB port connects to a PC, Mac, or iOS device with no driver installation needed. Control your favorite music software without any extra setup or create a complete musical production with the built-in 17-track MIDI recorder. The Color Touch Interface makes the recording process smooth and simple.
Finally, the PX-560 is suitable for any educational environment. The Duet Mode splits the keyboard into two equal ranges and two people can play side by side on one instrument. There is an additional Classroom Mode function that splits the keyboard and sends each side to an individual audio output, which makes it compatible with most third-party piano lab systems. The digital piano includes a score stand, an SP-3 sustain pedal, and an AC adapter.
Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard
Casio's Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action II 88-note keyboard accurately recreates the touch and response of a concert grand piano with 127 times the resolution of traditional keyboards. Suitable for the most demanding pianist, this keyboard also enables beginning players to develop a proper playing technique. As on a real concert grand piano, the keys feel heavier in the lower register, and lighter up top
The piano sound is powered by Casio's AiR (Acoustic and Intelligent Resonator) sound source. It uses Linear Morphing technology to create smooth, dynamic transitions from the softest to the loudest sounds, as well as Damper Resonance to accurately recreate the experience of the strings resonating against the piano's soundboard when the damper pedal is pressed. Hammer Response mimics the time between pressing the key and the hammer striking the strings. Key Off Simulation gives you control of a note's decay by how quickly the key is released. And with 256 notes of polyphony, you won't have to worry about dropped notes
Sound Design for Sound Designers
The PX-560 includes 550 Tones, covering a huge variety of musical instruments. You'll find expressive guitars, basses, strings, drums, synthesizer, and much more, polished with a powerful effects system. Create massive splits and layers, with four zones and a total of 14 layers at once. Accompany your playing with over 220 rhythms, which provide multiple instruments that follow your playing, covering a wide spectrum of musical styles
A Built-In Studio
When you are inspired, it's critical to be able to record quickly. The PX-560 lets you record audio directly to a USB stick. Should you want to create a complete musical production, you can also use the built-in 17-track MIDI recorder. You'll see familiar recording controls on the Color Touch Interface, making the recording process smooth and simple
Tools for School
The PX-560 features a Duet mode that splits the keyboard into two equal pitch ranges, letting two people (i.e. teacher and student) play side by side on a single instrument. Classroom mode adds the ability to send each side to an individual audio output, which is compatible with most popular third-party piano lab systems. Two front panel-mounted headphone jacks also make the PX-560 great for lessons or practice
