Casio GP-310 Features
Three Legendary Pianos
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 the 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.
Sound Development in Collaboration
The Berlin Grand sound was developed in collaboration with C. Bechstein. Casio sought a clear, balanced, and elegant sound for CELVIANO Grand Hybrid. D282, C. Bechstein’s ultimate masterpiece, is the model Casio intensively studied to achieve the goal. Mr. Albrecht, Service Director, and Master Piano Maker at C. Bechstein, visited Casio R&D to supervise the sound development process through the final modification.
Revolutionary Tone Generators
AiR Grand Sound Source
More natural sustain for more beautiful chord resonance. More sensitive expressiveness for pianissimo sounds, especially when playing extremely softly.
The CELVIANO Grand Hybrid incorporates AiR Grand Sound Source, a 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.
On an acoustic grand piano, the volume and quality of sounds change from the time the keys are struck until they die away. Casio’s Multi-dimensional Morphing technology enables natural, smooth transitions in sound volume and tone based on the power of the keystroke. This technology contributes to more expressive performances.
Traditional Piano Environments
Grand Pedal System
By continuously sensing and detecting the position of the damper pedal, Casio’s Grand Pedal System enables fine-tuning of the damping volume and note length depending on the degree of pedal depression. In addition, the Half Pedal Position function permits adjustment of the depression position at which the damping effect comes into play according to the player’s preference. For performances which utilize the soft pedal, the change in volume and characteristics of sound is extremely natural where the player can enjoy a wide range of expression when playing softly. The Action Sound System’s Damper Noise and Pedal Action Noise features reproduce even subtle operating sounds like those experienced with an acoustic grand piano.
Grand Acoustic System
More powerful, dynamic playing expression from lows to mids to highs, thanks to the superlative sound delivered by an upgraded downward-facing main speaker, with especially improved bass
Casio has developed a new dedicated speaker system for the CELVIANO Grand Hybrid that reproduces the characteristics of sound emanating upwards and downwards from an acoustic grand piano. This enables powerful and dynamic expression from rich, stately bass to bright mid-high sounds. The four-channel audio system incorporates six speakers, carefully positioned in a structural design that releases sound outward from the interior of the body. The system delivers the same sound field experience a player would enjoy while playing an acoustic grand piano.
Adjustable Lid Position & Lid Simulator
The CELVIANO Grand Hybrid’s design includes a top panel that can be manually raised and lowered. The lid’s position not only physically affects the sound coming from the upper speakers, but also works in conjunction with the “Lid Position” setting to accurately duplicate the characteristics of the adjustable lid on an acoustic grand piano.
The volume and timbre of sound produced by a grand piano change depending on the degree to which the lid is open or closed. The Lid Simulator simulates these acoustic effects digitally. Pianists can select among four settings for opening and closing stages and enjoy playing music with the piano sound effect of their choice.
*The Lid Simulator’s setting value remains unchanged, regardless of whether the piano’s top board is open or closed.
Authentic Acoustic Piano Touch
The player’s movement is transformed into music with many important factors. The most tangible factor is the keys. CELVIANO Grand Hybrid delivers authenticity from the first touch. The revolutionary Natural Grand Hammer Action keyboard is made with high-quality wooden keys. Its mechanism incorporates the hammer action that follows the same path of motion as in a grand piano. When the lid is lifted, you can see the hammers in motion through a clear panel as you play. Going beyond a standard acoustic mechanism, this action allows faster note repetition than acoustic pianos, while maintaining a true piano touch.
Natural Grand Hammer Action Keyboard
For an authentic piano touch, Casio has developed a new keyboard system called the “Natural Grand Hammer Action Keyboard”. This keyboard system features full-length wooden keys as well as hammers that follow the same path of motion as in a concert grand piano. CELVIANO Grand Hybrid features keys that are manufactured using exactly the same materials as acoustic grand piano. Careful attention is paid not only to finish of the surfaces of the keys but also to the quality of the wood employed for the key beds. This combination of an outstanding action mechanism and superior-quality key materials further enhances the sensation of playing an acoustic grand piano.
