Powered by AiR
Casio’s new AiR technology, redefines the Celviano digital piano experience with richer and more genuine sounds. The AiR sound source enables the new Celviano models to deliver first-class realism and detail by providing damper resonance, which enhances the sounds of the dampers lifting off the strings when pushing on the sustain petal. Casio’s AiR technology also compensates for the speed at which hammers strike strings at different velocities and key ranges, imperative for those who crave the authentic sounds and feel of a traditional grand piano.USB MIDI
Casio continues the tradition of providing “class compliant” USB connectivity on Celviano digital pianos. This allows Celviano to be used with Mac or Windows computers without the need to download drivers. Class Compliant USB MIDI also allows Celviano digital pianos to be used as a controller for the Apple iPad by using Apple’s Camera Connection Kit.
