KEYBOARD A-09: Casio CT-X3000 61-Key Portable Keyboard (Item #CT-X3000-U)
We've been very impressed with the CASIO brand for quality, features, & excellent price point!
Wherever you are on your musical journey, and no matter your budget, you shouldn't have to compromise on sound quality. Meet the CT–X3000. Powered by the stunning AiX Sound Source, its sound makes it a must-have for keyboardists of any level who need a portable instrument..
What truly sets the CT–X3000 apart from other portable keyboards is its heart: The powerful AiX Sound Source. This technology makes the CT–X3000 sound like a keyboard costing hundreds, if not thousands of dollars more.
Sound Your Best
Play a grand piano, and hear a meticulously-recorded 9-foot grand in a virtual concert hall. Play an electric piano, and hear vintage phasers and amplifier models that take you back in time. Play a flute, trumpet, or saxophone, and hear natural breath and vibrato. Play a bass, and hear the player switch techniques based on how hard you press the keys. Play a synth, and add an arpeggiator and drum part, and create an EDM hit.
The list goes on. Use the Category button to explore the 800 Tones, and in each category you’ll find an incredible variety of lifelike instruments that go far beyond your expectations. You can also edit the Tones, adjusting parameters like attack, release, filter cutoff and resonance. The CT-X3000 has 100 powerful DSP effects, including phasers, flangers, rotary speaker simulation, dynamics processing, and much more. These effects are preset for the included Tones, and can be extensively modified so you can dial in the perfect sound.
Set the Choices You Want
The CT-X3000's convenient performance features keep you in control. Once you've set up the CT-X3000 with your choice of Tones, Rhythms and other settings, you can save a Registration for instant recall right when you need it. There are eight convenient Registration buttons, with 16 banks giving you a total of 128 Registrations that can be quickly selected during your performance. Four Phrase Pads give you instant access to musical gestures, percussion loops, sound effects, or whatever else you need in the moment.
The CT–X3000 features a powerful 12-watt speaker system protected by tough metal grills. It's compact, lightweight and rugged, with a tough molded case. When not using the included AC adapter, the CT-X3000's optional battery power makes it perfect as a go-anywhere musical partner.
The CT–X3000 offers 64 notes of polyphony. Using the sustain pedal for multiple notes, playing big chords, adding rhythms and layering sounds can deplete the polyphony memory quickly resulting in dropped notes. When searching for a keyboard, take the amount of polyphony into consideration.
AC Adapter Included
Casio’s portable keyboards can run on batteries or an AC adapter. Unlike other companies, Casio includes an AC adapter with all portable keyboards.
