Here’s what Casio say:
The new PX-S3000 marks the culmination of fifteen years of research and development in the iconic Privia digital piano. Not only is this new range the most versatile, it’s also the biggest step forward since the original.
Incredible playability, unrivalled dimensions
The PX-S3000 has the most advanced key action of any portable piano, in an instrument that is more compact than any other.
A mark of quality in an acoustic piano is in the feel of its keyboard. Each key has its own hammer weighting, key resistance, damper position and key release time, creating a tone and touch which is proportional to that of its neighbour.
For the first time, Casio’s Smart Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard simulates the unique touch response of each individual key, delivering increased authenticity and a new level of playability. Simulated ebony and ivory textures on the keytops complete the playing experience.
Every fine nuance of an acoustic piano’s tone is faithfully recreated, including String and Damper resonance and even the mechanical action noise you would hear when playing a traditional instrument, for the ultimate in expressive realism.
Casio’s advanced AiR piano engine models the response of every note played, from the initial instant of a key press to its release. What’s more, various elements including the touch sensitivity and tonal balance can be adjusted to your preference.
…plus so much more
There are a total of 700 AiR tones to explore on the PX-3000, which can be played solo, layered together or be assigned to different areas of the keyboard. These include incredible Electric Pianos, orchestral tones, guitars, synths and much more.
Your favourite sound combinations can be stored to any of 96 Registration Memories for instant recall.
For total flexibility when performing, you can use up to two pedal inputs, to connect a sustain or expression pedal.
For arrangers and songwriters, there are 200 Smart Styles included which provide a live backing band to your playing.
Once you have your next big idea, you can use the Song Recorder to capture your inspiration, and even record your performance using the USB Audio Recorder.
For the performer, the new live control knobs can be programmed to manipulate tones in real-time, making it possible to change elements such as layer balance, effect depth and pitch controls.
With Bluetooth audio playback, the PX-S3000 instantly becomes the centre of your music making, whether it be in your home or studio.
Connect any Bluetooth compatible device and listen to music streamed through the speakers of the piano.
Connect your devices
With a USB connection, you can compose, learn and play music from your smartphone or tablet (cable required).
The PX-S3000 is fully compatible with iOS and Android devices and can be used with Casio’s own free Chordana Play Piano App.
Available for iOS and Android devices, Chordana Play Piano can show you how to play over 100 famous pieces of classical music, as well as work as a piano remote controller, and PDF music viewer.
