Aside from its portability, its stereo grand piano sound, 61 full-size keys with touch response, plus 60 other AiX-powered studio-quality tones, means this instrument looks as good as it sounds. Wired or wirelessly, users can also link the keyboard to Casio’s dedicated Chordana Play, an app that enables tempo and key changes in addition to displaying music scores and a piano roll. These features are great tools for those learning to play, those expanding their skills and experts alike.
