Play This Portable, Stellar-sounding Keyboard Anywhere!
Generations of keyboard players can remember being stuck inside to practice during gorgeous summer days. The prevailing thought was along the lines of: "Wouldn't it be a nice change to take my keyboard on adventures through the woods, to the beach, or into the park?" With the purchase of a Casio CT-S1 from Sweetwater, you can now play anywhere! This lightweight, portable keyboard includes strap pins so you can jam anywhere you see fit — just add a strap and batteries, and you're all set. You'll be able to explore a variety of sounds, too. Aside from its 61 full-size keys with touch response, the CT-S1 packs 61 sounds onboard, including a stellar stereo German grand piano. When inspiration strikes, the 1-button recorder will allow you to capture ideas on the fly. Finally, the CT-S1 features a class-compliant USB-MIDI port for MIDI playback via the free Chordana App.
61 stunning sounds onboard
There are a variety of sounds to explore within the Casio CT-S1. Chief among them is a stereo grand piano rendered in a stunningly realistic virtual concert hall. The other classic sounds include electric pianos, synths, organs, and much more. In every category, you'll find lifelike instruments that will impress you. But that's not all. You also get exacting controls over EQ, temperament, and delay. There's even a function that lets you choose among virtual concert halls to perform in.
Play along with your favorite songs
While we can all agree that playing piano alone is fun, it's a lot more exciting with backing tracks. That's why Casio included a class-compliant micro USB port in the design. With it, you can connect to any PC, Mac, iOS, or Android device and use the free Chordana Play app to download MIDI files. Play them back through the CT-S1 and jam along! Plus, with the purchase of the optional WU-BT10 Bluetooth MIDI/audio adapter, you can turn your CT-S1 into a Bluetooth speaker.
