The new Casio Privia PX-5S has succeeded in the realm of digital stage pianos with its improved sound quality and performance features built into a lightweight design. The PX-5S Digital Stage Piano features convenient tone editing, insert effects, MIDI controller capabilities and a full 88 Key, Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action II Keyboard. Weighing in at just 24 pounds, the Casio Privia PX-5S is ready to step up and take the performance stage.
Powered by AiR
At the heart of the PX-5S Stage Piano is Casio’s proprietary AiR sound source which provides incredible realism, detail and expression for grand piano sounds. In the PX-5S, the power of AiR has been expanded to provide stunning fidelity and control over other instrument tones and effects with 256 notes of polyphony. In addition to Privia’s award winning grand piano sounds, the PX-5S has an arsenal of newly developed sounds including classic electric piano, harpsichord and clav sounds. Some of these tones are complete with release samples, amplifier and speaker simulations for an incredibly authentic experience.
Audio Recording and Playback
Using a standard USB thumb drive, your musical performances or moments of inspiration can easily be captured as a standard .WAV file. Just press the Audio Record button two times and the PX-5S is ready to record your favorite sounds. Similarly, the PX-5S can play back .WAV files that are put on the USB drive. The second footswitch can be used to start or stop playback while you play along with your own pre-recorded backing tracks.
Portable and Battery Powered
At 24 pounds, the PX-5S is among one of the lightest weighted action stage pianos ever built. This makes it much easier to get to and from your stage performance. While you’re at your performance you never need to worry about interruptions in power as the PX-5S can operate for hours with 8 standard AA batteries. So wherever you are the PX-5S is easy to travel with and be up and running within a short amount of time.
Casio has continued its tradition of providing "class compliant" USB connectivity on their Privia digital pianos. This allows the Privia PX-5S to be used with Windows or MAC computers without the need for downloading compatible software drivers. Class Compliant USB MIDI also allows Privia digital pianos to be used as a controller for the Apple iPad simply with the use of Apple's Camera Connection Kit.
