What we think of the Casio AP-460 digital piano

The outgoing Casio Celviano range has proved to be extremely popular with beginner and intermediate pianists alike. Casio's proprietary AiR sound source and action really makes for an incredibly resonant and responsive range of instruments, and this all new model takes that one step further. New piano and electric piano sounds add a new level of realism and their new Hall Simulator feature allows you to position the piano in different ambient settings. This, along with the lid simulator and adjustable resonances gives you complete control over the sound of the piano.

As part of the elegant 'Celviano' range they have paid a lot of attention to detail, the instrument is finished off beautifully with a lovely satin black wood effect finish and the whole instrument feels extremely well made. The Casio Celviano range represents wonderful value for money, we cannot recommend them highly enough. The entire range is always on display in our Haslemere showroom and is ready to try.

The AP-460 will satisfy the most demanding player and incorporates the new ‘Concert Play’ built-in library of ten classical pieces to play along with an orchestra (Je Te Veux, Vltava, Canon, Tableaux d’Une Exposition “Promenade”, Piano Concerto No.20 K.466 2nd Mov., Polovetzian Dance, Sonate K.331 1st Mov., Violin Concerto 1st Mov., Jesus, Bleibet Meine Freude, Melody In F).
The emulated ebony and ivory keys, open-lid function, Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II, along with Multi-Dimensional Morphing AiR Sound Source provide rich, resonating tones for truly authentic piano acoustics.

Multi-dimensional Morphing AiR Sound Source

The characteristics of CASIO’s newly developed Multi-dimensional Morphing AiR* Sound Source reflect thorough attention to detail in expressing the rich, resonating tones inherent to the piano. The capacity of the installed memory has been expanded to achieve a longer sampling duration and enhanced waveform data quality. The temporal changes in tone that create sound you would expect only from a piano, beginning with the initial sound and leading into a beautiful extension until the sound eventually vanishes, are reproduced naturally. learn more
* AiR = Acoustic and Intelligent Resonator

Tri-sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II, with a grand piano's unique sounding timing

The difference between the sound structures of a grand piano and a digital piano appears as a difference in timing, from the moment the instrument is played until the sound is audible. The new Tri-sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II responds by incorporating a system with three sensors that detect touches of the keys sequentially. The Simulated ebony and ivory keys offers the luxurious feel and texture as well as the smooth touch of a grand piano keyboard. The minutely detailed crimp surface finish inhibits finger slippage due to sweat and gives the sensation of a perfect fingertip fit, even when playing for extended periods.

Lid Simulator

The sound volume and quality change when the lid on a grand piano is raised or lowered. The Lid Simulator reproduces the same acoustic effects for enhanced enjoyment with a digital piano. The acoustic effects of opening and closing the lid are simulated in fine detail. The piano sound you are seeking as you play is always available for your enjoyment by selecting the degree to which the lid is raised or lowered.
* The Lid Simulator setting value remains unchanged, regardless of whether the lid on the piano body is open or closed.

String Resonance

The sound produced by an acoustic piano is not only the sound associated with the keys that are struck. Other strings with frequencies closely associated with those producing the sounds resonate as well, adding their sound to give the music a uniquely rich resonance. In ordinary digital pianos, this string resonance effect is reproduced virtually with strings. The Multi-dimensional Morphing AiR sound source takes a different approach, however, by adopting a “string resonance” system incorporating a stereo resonance simulator for all 88 keys. The resonance of the 88 keys is reproduced completely and naturally. The resonance realized by playing a single tone is differentiated from that realized by playing a chord to reproduce the resulting variations in resonance in a natural manner. This even enables players to achieve varying resonances, controlling them at will by the strength of their touch, and thus to realize performances with the unique expressiveness of an acoustic piano.

Key Off Simulator

The lengths of the reverberations and expressions a piano produces vary depending on the speed at which players release their fingers after touching the keys. The new keyboard system incorporates a Key Off Simulator that reproduces these nuances resulting from key release naturally. Authentic reverberations that feel just like those of a grand piano are expressed as a result.

Damper Resonance

The deep, beautiful resonance resulting from the use of a damper pedal is also reproduced naturally by a stereo resonance simulator installed on all 88 keys, an approach that differs from conventional simulated reproduction employing effect processing. The attention to detail goes so far as to simulate the resonance created by the lifting of the dampers themselves when the pedal is pressed. A continuously variable system has been adopted for the damper pedal, moreover, reproducing even the subtle changes in reverberation that occur in response to the delicate pressure exerted by partial pedal operation. This enables players to employ pedal operation to achieve gracefully expressive performances.
