New AiR Sound Source
Casio’s new AiR (Acoustic and intelligent Resonator) sound source provides unmatched realism and detail. This sound engine provides seamless dynamics for a remarkably expressive and powerful performance. The capacity of the installed memory has been largely expanded to allow longer samples and enhanced waveform data quality, while the Lossless Audio Compression technology allows reproduction of the original piano sample without deterioration of the original sound quality. Fine nuances such as the length of note reverberation and tonal colour are controlled by the player’s touch – just as on an acoustic piano.
The new AiR sound source reproduces the resonance created from using the damper pedal naturally through the use of a stereo resonance simulator for all 88 keys. The attention to detail goes so far as to simulate the resonance created by the lifting of the dampers themselves when the pedal is pressed. The resonance system allows players to perform with an unprecedented amount of expressive detail.
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.
Complete Entertainment Piano
The PX780 includes 250 pro-quality tones ranging from stereo-sampled grand pianos to vintage electric pianos, organs, strings and more. Combine this with 180 rhythm patterns, the ability to store up to 96 of your favourite setups with the registration feature, and 17-tracks of built in recording, this piano offers unlimited playing pleasure.
Elegant Cabinet Design
The piano is housed in a slim-line modern cabinet, incorporating a sliding key cover that protects the keys when the piano is not in use. The slim design ensures this piano will suit any space within the home.
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.
