New Casio Privia PX5S Synth powerhouse, piano and controller

From the press release:

The newly developed Privia Pro PX-5S is a genuine stage piano, advanced MIDI controller and performance workstation packed with functions that set it apart from other digital pianos. Equipped with Casio’s new proprietary sound source, “AiR” (Acoustic and intelligent Resonator), the PX-5S delivers acoustic piano sounds with unmatched realism and detail. The power of AiR is also applied to an all new set of authentic vintage electric piano sounds and clavinets that is paired by a powerful new effects engine giving the PX-5S an arsenal of both acoustic and electric piano sounds.

In addition the PX-5S features a large assortment of fully programmable sounds, including Hex Layer tones derived from the award winning XW-P1 synthesizer.  Hex Layers can produce evocative synth sounds as well as complex acoustic and orchestral simulations.

The PX-5S is stage piano like no other.  In a remarkable 24 pound package it is also a four-zone performance controller, complete with 4 assignable knobs, 6 assignable sliders, 2 pedal inputs, pitch and modulation wheels. Four independent and programmable arpeggiators allow the PX-5S to expand in to sonic territory by creating an array of animated textures. An 8 track phrase sequencer allows the performer to trigger sequences and riffs which can be triggered and transpose and on the fly, allowing for unheard of performances by a single musician.

“The Privia PX-5S is a new breed of stage piano,” said Schmidt. “Designed with a plethora of features ideal for any performing musician, the PX-5S is sure to raise the bar and caliber of stage pianos within the industry.”

Casio’s PX-5S even provides the ability to record a 44.1kHz .wav file directly to a USB thumb drive so that rehearsals, performances and moments of inspiration can be easily captured and shared.

The PX-5S can be purchased for an MSRP of $1,299 at select music dealers nationwide. For additional information regarding Casio’s Privia line of digital pianos, please visit www.CasioMusicGear.com
