Casio GP-500BPC5 Built in to the Casio GP500 Grand Hybrid Pianos you'll find three brand new Piano sounds. Named the Berlin, Hamburg and Vienna, they are the result of hours of analysis of each piano's individual characteristics. The Berlin model is the result of a collaboration between Casio and Bechstein. Details such as string and damper resonance, mechanical sounds and many other small nuances reproduce the experience of playing some of the finest Pianos in the world. Casio's Celviano GP500 Grand Hybrid Pianos feature a Hall Simulator, which places you in a wide choice of world renowned concert halls, opera houses, cathedrals and other venues. Each venue has been analysed and the acoustic characteristics reproduced in detail, giving your playing an immersive atmosphere. This takes reverb to a whole new level. The Casio GP500 has a Scene selection feature, so you can combine a chosen hall simulation, Piano sound, and any other effects you wish to add. These can then be saved into a preset that you can recall at any time. Casio have created several amazing presets for you; choose a composer from the list and you'll automatically have the right Piano and venue combined to suit their musical style. The Celviano GP500 Grand Hybrid from Casio features a unique Duet Mode, splitting the keyboard in two equal pitch ranges. Perfect for lessons or duets, you can also send the sound to separate outputs, either to headphones, or to separate speakers for recording or amplification. The speakers in the Casio GP500 Hybrid Grand Pianos use their Grand Acoustic System. This goes way beyond stereo sound, using six speakers to create a three dimensional sound. Placed around the cabinet of the Piano, these reproduce the sounds created by each different area of the Piano. Those on the top produce the hammer strikes, and many of the mechanical sounds, alongside the resulting notes, those in the lower area of the instrument create the sounds of the pedals, soundboard and parts found lower in the Piano. The result is a sound that fills the room with a rich and complex sound that will thrill players and audiences alike.
