Casio Privia Pro PX-560 Digital Piano
The Casio Privia Pro PX-560 is not just a stage piano- it’s a musical instrument that can make you to rethink everything know you know about Casio.
The Casio Privia Pro PX-560 is tremendous stage piano.
The PX-560 is the most technologically advanced and the latest digital piano in the Privia series.
To get more information about this instrument, let’s dive into this review.
The PX-560 features Casio’s Tri-sensor II scaled hammer action piano keys. These keys are heavier on the bottom and lighter up the top. The PX-560 has 88-fully weighted keys that use hammer action to reproduce the feel of a traditional grand piano. The keys have an Ebony and Ivory texture to them. It’s a simulated texture that gives a confident grip on keys and helps to absorb moisture from fingers. I definitely like this feature.
All the Privia digital pianos feature Casio’s AIR Sound Source. This feature helps to produce a beautiful stereo grand piano sound. To cover a wide dynamic range of a grand piano, the AIR Sound Source uses 88-key multi-layered samples. This feature of the Privia PX-560 provides additional sense of realism that draws you into the instrument.
There is also a selection of hundreds of different built-in rhythms with full automatic accompaniment. Some of these are really good and realistic. In addition, there are 220 accompaniment styles and 305 music presets to enhance the quality of your music.
Recording, playback and connectivity
You can record your play using a built-in 17 track recorder and after completing your work, you can mix it all down to a two-channel audio file. There’s even an audio input where you can connect a microphone and sing along with your paly. It gets recorded into the USB drive.
In the Privia PX-560, there is a big 5.3 inch beautiful color touch interface. This touch screen makes it very easy to navigate and explore the PX-560. According to me, this feature takes the user experience to a different level.
The Privia PX-560 has very powerful built-in speakers of 8 watt per side. You’ll get a professional quality audio from built-in speakers
The Privia PX-560 has 256-note polyphony which makes you able to hear every details of your performance.
The PX-560 also offers impressive mode of layering and splitting: Split, Dual and Duo (Duet play).
The Split mode divides the piano into two parts and allows you to choose a different sound for each of them.
The Layer mode of the Privia allows you to combine two different sounds.
And the Duet paly mode splits keyboard into sections of the same pitch. This mode allows a person to practice the piano with his tutor.
The PX-560 was born to be used on stage and works very well with other instruments. The PX-560 is a great instrument for any home-setting.
