Acoustic Intelligence Resonator
Casio presents the highest level of sound quality with the AiR Sound Source. With greater memory capacity, the PX 870 can store larger samples. So you can appreciate thorough attention to detail. Featuring longer samples, with enhanced waveform data quality, you get to express your truest intentions with a more natural resonance and decay. You don’t have to settle for the limitations of a short, looped sample. Rather, you can convey the real depth and tonal quality of your sound with AiR Source.
Tri-Sensor II Hammer Action
The Privia’s triple sensor key feature is receptive to subtle movements in your playing style, by which the AiR source can translate into an acoustic sounding response. While the tone enhancing simulators provide incredible features such as hammer response and damper resonance to further the complexity of your sound. All 88 keys incorporate a stereo resonance simulator that realistically reproduces the string sounds of a grand piano. So you can close your eyes and imagine yourself performing at the concert grand.
Pay with the Fullest Expression
The Privia 870 features an incredible keyboard mechanism that allows you to play with the most dynamic. The scaled hammer action has a weighted feel and expressive response similar to acoustic pianos. The simulated ebony and ivory key tops benefit the musician through their smooth, comfortable feel that doesn’t slip after a long performance. The Privia’s three sensitivity levels allow you to adjust the feel to your specific preference.
A Stunning Modern Design
The PX 870 is meticulously designed with a slimmer and sleeker design. Carefully made to complement modern and minimalist interior environments. You can have both with Casio’s PX 870 – a full size keyboard, with a sleek and compact cabinet. The all new design allows you to easily store your PX 870 in small adn compact living spaces. And with an attached music rest, you can hold up your music books and smart devices. While the sliding cover keeps the keys clean and dust-free when it is not in use.
Chordana Play for Piano app
Casio understands that technology plays a large part in education, and learning to play the piano is no exception! Now you can connect your smartphone or tablet to your piano via a USB cable to unlock a wealth of educational features. You can choose between the 60 included PDFs of sheet music on the Chordana Play for Piano app, or you can even add your own PDF files. When connected via USB, you can configure your single or triple pedal unit as a page turner, enabling you to concentrate on the performance. If you’re looking to gain insight into the individual pieces and composers, then the app also has built-in descriptions listed from the PTNA (Piano Teachers’ National Association).
For a more interactive approach, the Chordana Play for Piano app features MIDI files which enables you to play in a piano roll window. With 201 different songs to choose from, this library includes music which even beginners can enjoy listening to and perform. Change the tempo, transpose to an easier key, or even use the AB repeat function to master small parts of the song which you’re struggling with. You can even take lessons using the on-screen keyboard and track your progress using a scoring system! And if that’s not enough, you can import your own MIDI files so you can play along with your favourite music.
But the Chordana Play for Piano app isn’t just for learning. When you connect your Casio piano, you can now use your smartphone or tablet to finetune a multitude of features. You can control main settings such as what voice you are using, metronome settings, and reverb settings quickly and efficiently. If you’re really wanting to tweak your tone, then you can start to experiment with hammer response, string response, lid settings, layering options, split keyboard, recording settings, plus much more!
