The PX-560 is the latest edition to Casio’s Privia Pro line. Featuring many of the sound design elements of the award winning PX-5S, the PX-560 adds new tones, user-programmable rhythms, built-in speakers, all centered around an amazing, easy-to-use 5.3″ Color Touch Interface.
Powered by AiR
At the heart of the PX-560 is the AiR (Acoustic Intelligent Resonator) sound source. Faithfully reproducing the sound of a 9-foot concert grand piano, the AiR sound source also incorporates every possible detail within the piano sound. Casio’s Linear Morphing technology ensures the smoothest possible curve in dynamics, from the quietest pianissimo right through to the loudest fortissimo. The Key-Off simulator allows you to control the length of the note decay by the speed at which notes are released.
Full Colour Touch Interface
Navigating the PX560 is a breeze with the new Colour Touch Interface. The 5.3-inch full colour touch screen responds immediately to your touch, incorporating familiar icon styles and gestures such as swipe. The intuitive touch screen ensures every function, from choosing tones and rhythms, to effects and recording are always right at your fingertips.
Three advanced CASIO sensors accurately detect keystroke speeds and timing and employ them to realize subtle sounds and performance characteristics that might be expected only from an acoustic piano. The action mechanism emulates the deadweight of piano hammers to realize a natural touch like that of a grand piano, moreover, with heavier strokes required to reproduce low notes and a progressively lighter touch employed as the tones move up the scale.
Simulated ebony and ivory keys inhibit finger slippage due to sweat and produce the sensation of a comfortable fingertip fit that lasts even through extended sessions.
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. When using the optional SP-33 pedal board, 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.
Fully Equipped Ready to Perform
Much more than just a piano, the PX-560 also features a huge variety of 650 tones, including strings, guitars, basses, drums, synth tones and more. Many of the sound design elements have been brought across from the award winning PX-5S stage piano into the PX-560, including the Hex Layer sound engine, allowing you to layer up to 6 waveforms within a single tone. On board is also powerful synth editing capabilites, where you can edit, create and store up to 400 of your own user tones.
The 3 assignable knobs, an assignable Modulation Wheel and expression pedal input ensure you are always in complete control of your performance. Combine all of this with the 220 built-in rhythm patterns and automatic accompaniments, the possibilities are endless, covering a wide range of musical genres.
From Home to the Stage
The PX-560 is designed with flexibility in mind. When combined with the CS67 stand and SP33 pedal board, it becomes an attractive furniture style digital piano sure to suit any home interior design. Yet the PX560 can be easily taken from home to the stage. Featuring stereo Line Output and Inputs, USB and 5-pin MIDI connections, the PX560 can be easily incorporated into any live performance setup. The 96 Performance Registrations ensure your custom setups are always at your fingertips, ready to recall in an instant.
Studio Functions Built In
Capturing your ideas is simple with the built-in 17-track MIDI song recorder. Store up to 100 songs, or even utilize the Audio Recorder to record in .WAV format direct to a USB thumb drive. A Class Compliant USB MIDI connection as well as 5-pin MIDI In/Out ensures the PX-360 will play nice with any other external studio gear
