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

An acoustic and visual delight: It’s not just the sound that is a highlight of the AP-620 CELVIANO digital piano. Features such as 250 AiF tones, 180 rhythms and the 17 track/5 song sequencer are perfectly matched to the elegant design and provide a special playing experience.

The top model in the CELVIANO range boasts brilliant sound, high-quality workmanship and excellent design. The AP-620 is ideal for advanced playing techniques and offers players an extensive automatic accompaniment feature. Even a simple piano piece sounds special on this instrument. Just listen to the difference! Additional features of this modern top-of-the-range piano include registration memory, 17-track sequencer and rhythm editor. The loving attention to detail is reflected in the ivory effect keyboard surface.

250 AiF tones

The excellent AiF Sound source produces 250 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.

180 rhythms

180 preset rhythms offer a varied range spanning the world of music.

Sequencer (recorder)

With the sequencer (17 track/5 song), you can record your own ideas quickly and easily in real-time (capacity: 10,000 notes).

Registration memory

Faster access: You can file up to 96 set-ups (8 x 12 spaces) in the registration memory.

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-620 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-620.

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.

Ivory touch keyboard

Both an audible and visual delight: The refined, matt keys with ivory touch not only look sophisticated and high quality, but provide a comfortable playing surface and additional stability to prevent your fingers from sliding. Enjoy a realistic playing experience!

LC display

Retain an overview: The LC display provides you with easy access to the instrument’s functions.

Duet function

Duet functionIdeal for lessons: the new duet functions allows teachers and pupils to play parallel to each other. The AP-620 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

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

Stereo LINE IN / OUT

The Stereo LINE IN / OUT of your digital piano provides a connection for full sound experiences. e.g. to your hi-fi or PA-system.

MIDI-In/Out

The proven interface for electronic musical instruments, additional equipment and computers simplifies data exchange for you.

2 headphone connections Duet delight: two headphone connections are available.

3 pedals

The AP-620 features a 3-pedal unit with expanded damper capability.

Powerful speaker system

Impressive sound: The powerful two-way system with four speakers and 2 x 30 watts of output power ensures an exhilarating sound delivery. The sound is not only projected in the direction of the player but also to the rear or downwards, depending on the model. This creates a three-dimensional and more natural sound.

SD card slot

The innovative SD memory medium offers a simple but limitless way to expand the internal song memory of the AP-620.

USB Plug & Play/Song expansion

The USB/MIDI­(GM) connection enables further Midfile songs to be loaded into the internal memory via the "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 10.03 and Windows XP/Vista).

Music preset

The "Music Preset Library" contains 300 "one touch settings“ based on popular rock and pop songs. The useful pre-settings for rhythm, tone, tempo, effects etc. makes time-consuming searches for the right settings a thing of the past. This assistant makes playing the "top 300" child’s play!

Rhythm editor

Pop rhythm with a touch of jazz, jazz rhythm with a shot of pop: with the rhythm editor, elements from different rhythms can be combined and edited. 10 user slots are available for individual style editing.
