Next Generation Keyboard Sound Using the High-Performance LSI – Casio CT-X5000
AiX Sound Source delivers High-Quality Tones and Rich Expressiveness
The CT-X Series comes with the AiX Sound Source, which can produce a wide range of sound qualities from powerful bass tones to clear high tones. The exceptional computing power of the high performance LSI reproduces the natural charm of acoustic instrument sounds, such as the agreeable change in tone when a piano key is struck, the sensation of a drum performance, or soaring strings. Dynamic tone changes also give its electronic sound exceptional expressiveness.
The high-speed digital signal processor is also applied for each sound type, such as melody, backing drum and bass, or organ. Even the standard ensemble for a keyboard delivers distinct sound for each instrument for an expressive performance.
High Output Amplifiers and High Performance Bass Reflex Speakers
Boasting best in class output from 15W + 15W amp. The keyboard delivers a supremely realistic performance with powerful heavy bass, even when used alone without a PA system or external sound system, thanks to the high performance bass reflex speakers equipped with large magnets, and especially the newly designed bass reflex speaker enclosure that emphasizes low frequency.
