The Well-tempered Celviano
The Casio AP-470 Celviano digital piano delivers authentic grand piano sound and playability. Celviano instruments feature Casio's Tri-Sensor 88-key scaled hammer action keybed with simulated ebony and ivory keys for a superbly natural acoustic piano playing experience. The sounds are incredibly realistic thanks to Casio's award-winning AiR Sound Source, which utilizes grand piano samples recorded at four dynamic levels to deliver piano sounds with long natural decays and remarkable expression. The AP-470 features 22 built-in sounds that you can split and layer as needed, including two gorgeous stereo grand pianos which breathe with lively damper resonance. And with 256 notes of polyphony, your Celviano can handle even your most complex performances, as they're amplified in all their glory by the AP-470's rich-sounding onboard speaker system.
World-class onboard sounds
The Celviano AP-470 includes two world-class grand piano sounds, with variations of each to suit any musical setting. At Sweetwater, we find these sumptuous grand pianos perfect for many genres. Casio's AiR (Acoustic and intelligent Resonator) sound engine delivers incredible piano realism with advanced sympathetic string resonance, which unmasks the complex harmonic interaction between undamped strings. Damper resonance, hammer response, and lid simulation provide even greater detail to capture every nuance of your performances. A total of 22 sounds are onboard, including electric pianos, organs, and other essential instruments. Adjustable Chorus and Brilliance are included along with a Hall Simulator, which places your piano in a virtual concert space of your choosing.
Incredibly natural playing feel
Casio's renowned Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action keys give you an incredibly natural acoustic grand piano playing feel. The innovative hammer action, accurately scaled across the entire key range, and simulated ebony and ivory key surfaces reinforce the illusion. Three levels of adjustable touch sensitivity let you customize key response to suit your particular playing style, while realistic hammer response accurately reproduces the delay between key strike and note sounding. Just like an acoustic grand, this high-resolution keyboard allows for quick repetition of notes without the need to return the key to its resting position. For the ultimate in piano realism, the AP-470 even re-creates the mechanical sounds of a grand piano's keys.
Innovative features for performance and practice
The AP-470 is not only perfect for performance, but also for lessons and practice. Headphone Mode optimizes the piano’s stereo image for private listening. Duet mode splits the keyboard into two identical pitch ranges, allowing, for instance, a teacher and student to sit side-by-side and play a duet. The onboard Music Library stores 60 songs, with space for ten additional songs of your choice. The Concert Play feature provides ten audio recordings of a full symphony orchestra and lets you play along with the left- and/or right-hand piano parts removed. You can also record your performances using the AP-470’s two-track MIDI and audio recorders. The AP-470 connects via class-compliant USB to any Mac, PC, iOS, or Android device without the need for additional drivers.
Traditional elegance, modern functionality
The Casio Celviano AP-470 seamlessly blends traditional elegance with innovative modern features and functionality. The piano lid can be raised or lowered to adjust the tone and volume the same way you would with an acoustic piano, and a sliding key cover protects the keys when not in use. Its class-compliant USB port gives you instant connectivity to your computer and mobile devices. Download the free Chordana Piano companion app, which lets you customize your AP-470’s functions from your smartphone or tablet. View PDF scores and interact with MIDI files as you learn to play your favorite songs. With its stylish, traditional upright cabinet and included matching deluxe bench, the Casio Celviano AP-470 is beautifully designed to compliment any decor. It will enhance the elegance of any room in your home as it enriches your family's musical creativity.
