CASIO AP-220

All the versions of this article: [Deutsch] [English] [français]

A pianist’s dream: The new Linear Morphing AiF Sound Source technology gives the AP-220 a complete spectrum of authentic grand piano tones — from pianissimo to fortissimo.

Set the tone with the AP-220: The 16 AiF tones on this elegant digital piano deliver ultra-fine nuances thanks to advanced sampling technology and reproduce the complex sound of a grand piano extremely authentically. The scaled hammer-action keyboard has three sensors to reflect even the softest nuances in touch. These excellent piano features are matched by the stylish design.

16 AiF tones

The excellent AiF Sound source produces 16 top-quality tones, which truly come into their own in both classic piano repertoire and many other genres.

AiF Linear Morphing

The innovative AiF Sound Source technology produces top-quality tones perfectly suited to both classical piano music and other genres and enables gentle transitions between individual samples and dynamic levels. Complex stereo recordings from a top-quality concert piano (samples) with four dynamic levels provide a particularly authentic sound and allow you to play across various intermediate stages from piano to forte without any sound discolouration or audible leaps.

128-voice polyphony

Guarantee an absolutely first-class piano sound. The expansion of the range of voices has made interpreting complex works a true pleasure and lets you play sweeping chords and make extensive use of the damper pedal.

"Tri-Sensor" scaled hammer-action keyboard

Piano feeling: The scaled hammer-action keyboard with 88 touch response, weighted keys is based on the keyboard of a concert piano and provides an authentic playing experience. A third sensor in the keyboard allows players to use particularly fast techniques without the notes sounding unnaturally cut off.

Sequencer (recorder)

Sequencer (recorder)With the sequencer (2 track/1 song), you can record your own ideas quickly and easily in real-time (capacity: 5,000 notes).

Two piano setting keys

Piano sound tailored to your own taste: The piano setting key switches to grand piano sound at the touch of a button. Two settings are available: "classic" for a soft, discreet sound and "modern" with a more lighter, brighter character.

High-quality DSP effects

The AP-220 digitally reproduces the high-quality sound of a top concert grand piano complete with first-class reverb effects. The simulation of the resonating strings that is provided by the "Acoustic Resonance" CASIO effect rounds the sound experience off perfectly.

60 songs

Listen, sing along, play along: 60 top quality songs are stored on your AP-220.

8 digital effects

Live before an audience or at home in the living room: The sound diversity of your keyboard is enhanced by 4 reverb / 4 chorus effects.

88 Keys

The scaled hammer-action with 88 touch response weighted keys are based on the grand piano keyboard and make for an authentic playing feel.

Duet function

Ideal for lessons: the new duet functions allows teachers and pupils to play parallel to each other. The AP-220 can be divided into two keyboard areas, which can be transposed individually.

PANEL-Lock

Safe: With the PANEL-Lock function, the control panel is protected from unintentional moves while playing.

Metronome

MetronomeKeep to the beat: The integrated metronome helps you keep to the rhythm.

PedalThe AP-220 features a 3-pedal unit without expanded damper capability.

Powerful loudspeaker system

Powerful sound: the amplifier system with four loudspeakers with 2 x 8 watt creates a harmonious and uniform sound.

USB Plug & Play/Song expansion

No software installation from a CD-ROM required thanks to Plug & Play and the USB driver is compatible with both Mac and Windows (from Mac OSX and Windows XP/Vista).
