THREE LEGENDARY PIANOS
Celviano Grand Hybrid reproduces even subtle nuances of the world’s most respected pianos. Three pianos that originate in Berlin, Hamburg and Vienna were chosen for this project. Casio has painstakingly researched and analysed the unique characteristics of each piano. Celviano Grand Hybrid delivers brilliant sound of these pianos reproduced with Casio's advanced technology. It will provide the experience of owning three of the finest pianos on earth.
Berlin Grand - A Balanced elegant sound. Ideal for playing impressionistic music. Notable for its clear, ringing tone across the entire range.
Hamburg Grand - A brilliant, rich sound. Loved by pianists for its wide range of expression. Well suited for various playing styles and genres.
Vienna Grand - Noted for its impressive low range. Great for both soft and vigorous playing with its warm tone. An ideal instrument for music from the classical period.
SOUND DEVELOPMENT IN COLLABORATION
The Berlin Grand sound was developed in collaboration with C. Bechstein. Casio sought a clear, balanced and elegant sound for the Celviano Grand Hybrid piano. D282, C. Bechstein;s ultimate masterpiece, is the model Casio intensively studied to achieve the goal. Mr. Albrecht, Service Director and Master Piano Make at C. Bechstein, visited Casio R&D to supervise the sound development process throughout the final stages of production.
NATURAL GRAND HAMMER ACTION KEYBOARD
For an authentic piano touch, Casio has developed a new keyboard system called the “Natural Grand Hammer Action Keyboard”. This keyboard system features full-length wooden keys as well as hammers that follow the same path of motion as in a concert grand piano. Celviano Grand Hybrid features keys that are manufactured using exactly the same materials as an acoustic grand piano. Careful attention is paid not only to finish of the surfaces of the keys but also to the quality of the wood employed for the key beds. This combination of an outstanding action mechanism and superior-quality key materials further enhances the sensation of playing an acoustic grand piano.
Playing with an orchestra is an extraordinarily thrilling event. Concert Play feature demonstrates orchestral performance for a pianist to enjoy an experience of playing as a soloist accompanied by a full orchestra. 15 pieces of music are built in. When you practice, a convenient playback function offers capabilities of play, pause, fast-forward, rewind and A-B segment repeat. Using a Slow Mode, the tempo of these pieces can be slowed to 80% of normal speed as needed.
Celviano Grand Hybrid pianos have the ability to record performances directly to USB flash drive as stereo audio files (44.1 kHz, stereo .WAV format). Recordings can be stored or played back on a computer or transferred to CDs or other media. The piano’s built-in full playback function permits use of such features as pause, fast-forward, rewind and A-B segment repeat.
This function enables players to record their own performances freely in the Celviano Grand Hybrid’s memory. It helps users improve their playing skills by reviewing their own performances objectively afterwards. This full playback function permits use of such features as pause, fast-forward, rewind and A-B segment repeat during playback.
LAYER AND SPLIT
The layer function enables pianists to overlap two types of tones, while the split function lets them separate tones into lower and higher blocks.
Intuitive control of Celviano Grand Hybrid is possible through a simple, considerately designed control panel. The Berlin Grand, Hamburg Grand and Vienna Grand are easily accessed with dedicated buttons for each piano tone.
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.
