CASIO Grand Hybrid GP-400
With its beautiful form evoking an impression of dignity and stability and its overall height equivalent to a grand piano's, the GP-400BK gives pianists the sensation and visual perspective of performing on a grand piano. Strict attention to detail, such as installation of an appropriately wide music stand and construction with thick legs and other components, adds further luster to its value.
CELVIANO Grand Hybrid reproduces even subtle nuances of the world’s most respected pianos. Three pianos that originate in Berlin, Hamburg and Vienna were chosen for this project. CASIO has painstakingly researched and analyzed the unique characteristics of each piano. CELVIANO Grand Hybrid delivers brilliant sound of these pianos reproduced with CASIO’s advanced technology. It will provide the experience of owning three of the finest pianos on earth.
A balanced, elegant sound. Ideal for playing impressionistic music. Notable for its clear, ringing tone across the entire range.
A brilliant, rich sound. Loved by pianists for its wide range of expression. Well suited for various playing styles and genres.
The CELVIANO Grand Hybrid incorporates AiR Grand Sound Source, a newly developed system using CASIO’s state-of-the-art sound technologies. It includes many impressive features. Multi-dimensional Morphing delivers smooth changes between soft and strong playing. Acoustic Simulator reproduces the characteristics of sounds produced by acoustic grand pianos. The authenticity generated by the AiR Grand Sound Source ensures a pure piano experience.
A grand piano also generates several types of mechanical sounds, which are an important part of the playing experience. CASIO has sought to provide a more realistic simulation by reproducing the sounds of these mechanisms. Four types of operating sounds are included, and the volume of each can be set independently or turned off.
The lengths of the lingering sounds produced by a grand piano vary depending on the speed at which players release their fingers after pressing the keys. In a similar fashion, CASIO’s Key Off Simulator controls the length of these sounds based on the key’s release speed. This enables players to express delicate nuances when playing staccato and legato.
