AiR Grand Sound Source - Three Legendary Pianos

The storied tradition of the piano, an instrument with a long history going back to the 1700s, lives on today in three superb pianos. Casio exhaustively researched and analyzed the tonal characteristics of these three full concert grand pianos, made in Berlin, Hamburg, and Vienna. We drew upon the full range of our digital technologies to express the tone color of these grand pianos in the newly developed AiR Grand Sound Source. It is now possible to enjoy to the fullest the magnificent sound of these historic pianos, beloved by Liszt, Debussy, and other musical giants, in a single digital piano.

 

Berlin Grand Sound Developed in Collaboration with C. Bechstein

When speaking of the C. Bechstein piano, Claude Debussy declared, “Piano music should only be written for the Bechstein.” This history of C. Bechstein pianos begins with the company’s founding by Carl Bechstein in Berlin in 1853. Now, Casio has joined in collaboration with this renowned piano maker to develop the “Berlin Grand” tone, a balanced, elegant sound with a clearly defined shape. To create its exquisite clarity of tone and vibrancy, we analyzed the tone color of the ultimate C. Bechstein masterpiece, the D282. The resulting sound, which meets with the approval of even C. Bechstein master piano maker Werner Albrecht, has been incorporated into the Celviano AP-700 as “Berlin Grand.”

 

String Resonance

The sound produced by an acoustic piano is not only the sound associated with the individual keys that are struck. Other strings with frequencies closely associated with those producing the sounds will resonate as well, adding to the overall sound and giving the music a uniquely rich resonance. The new AiR sound source reproduces this resonance naturally through the use of a stereo resonance simulator for all 88 keys. The resonance created from using the damper pedal is also reproduced naturally across all 88 keys. A continuously variable damper system reproduces even the subtle changes in reverberation that occur in response to delicate pressure changes applied to the damper pedal. The resonance system allows players to perform with an unprecedented amount of expressive detail.

 

Lid Simulator

The sound volume and quality changes when the lid on a grand piano is raised or lowered. The Lid Simulator reproduces the acoustic effects of opening and closing the lid with fine detail. You can design the exact piano tone you desire by selecting the degree to which the lid is raised or lowered.

 

Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II

The new Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II responds to subtle variations in the time between detection of a keystroke and sound production, depending on the speed of the keystroke. The system uses three sensors that detect the keystroke sequentially, which also enables a sound to be produced repeatedly, even when the key has not fully returned to its resting position. The action relies solely on the weight of the hammer, which become progressively heavier towards the lower end and progressively lighter towards the higher end of the keyboard, simulating the characteristic of the action on a grand piano.

 

Simulated Ebony and Ivory Feel Keys

The simulated ebony and ivory keys offer the luxurious feel and texture of a grand piano keyboard. The texture allows maximum grip and avoids slipping of the fingers due to moisture.

 

Key Off Simulator

The new keyboard system incorporates a Key Off Simulator that reproduces the differing lengths of reverberations caused depending on the speed the key is released.

 

Concert Play

Experience the joy of performing with a full orchestra. High-quality audio recordings of 10 live orchestra performances are built-in to the AP700, so you can play along with the recordings and enjoy the feeling of participating in a magnificent performance. Musical scores of the concerts are included.

 

Hall Simulator

The Hall Simulator function simulates the differing acoustic characteristics of world-famous concert halls. An advanced equalizing system assures you experience the full potential of the sound experience of playing on stage in some of the most prestigious venues from around the world.

 

Elegant Cabinet Design

The AP-7000 is housed in a traditional piano style cabinet, even incorporating a lid that can be opened or closed. Just like an acoustic piano, changes in acoustics and sound dispersion can be achieved by opening or closing the top-board lid, with a red-cloth surface which becomes visible when the lid is open adding to the beauty of this piano.

 

Audio Recording / Playback

Performances can be recorded in high quality 44.1kHz WAV format directly on to a USB flash drive. The audio function can also playback WAV files directly from a USB flash drive, allowing the use of backing tracks to accompany your playing.
