Casio introduced the new Privia PX-330, which combines unprecedented sound quality and performance in a sleek, lightweight package. The new grand piano sound introduced in the PX-330 is comprised of four dynamic layers of stereo piano samples. When integrated with Casio’s Linear Morphing System, the PX-330 delivers a more realistic sound with seamless transitions and a superior dynamic range. The PX-330 also features a new Tri-Sensor 88-note scaled hammer action keyboard providing users with the weight, feel and resistance of a grand piano, without sacrificing the PX-330’s portability.
Equipped with 128-note polyphony, the PX-330 has the ability to handle the most demanding musical passages, to layer sounds and use the damper pedal without worry about dropping notes. In addition, an acoustic Resonance Effect simulates the sound of the dampers released off the strings by the sustain pedal, taking realism to a new level.
“When developing new instruments, Casio aims to create innovative new technologies ahead of our competition,” says Mike Martin, Director of Marketing, Electronic Musical Instruments Division. “As the newest addition to the Privia line, the PX-330 encompasses Casio’s latest sound technologies providing musicians with an instrument featuring unmatched performance capabilities.”
Armed with 250 instrument sounds and a 16-track recorder, the PX-330 enables musicians to produce recordings of up to 16 separate instruments. A graphic LCD display allows users to view the names of all sounds, songs, rhythms, while also assisting in editing and recording functions. Utilizing SD memory, users can easily load and save their songs and transfer them to a computer. A built-in USB MIDI interface allows users to easily use the PX-330 with computer applications. Additional, the PX-330 is equipped with 1/4″ outputs for connectivity to mixers and PA systems and a built-in registration memory, the PX-330 instantly recalls splits, layers and sound combinations, making it a perfect instrument to take to a live gig.
Weighing in at a mere 26 pounds, the PX-330’s power and portability makes it perfect for the professional musician who travels to performances. The PX-330 will be available this September with an MSRP of $899.99.
