The characteristics and sounds of the three legendary pianos are faithfully reproduced
CELVIANO Grand Hybrid can even reproduce the subtle sound changes of world-renowned pianos. In this project, CASIO selected three pianos from Berlin, Hamburg and Vienna.

Action sound system
The grand piano also produces several sound effects related to mechanical operation, which is an important part of the playing experience. By reproducing these mechanical sound effects, CASIO more accurately simulates a grand piano. The piano has 4 different operating sound effects, and the volume of each sound effect can be set or turned off independently.
The continuous musical tone displayed by the grand piano varies in length with the speed at which the player's fingers leave the keys after pressing the keys. In a similar way, the CASIO key-off simulator controls the length of the sound according to the speed at which the finger leaves the key. This allows players to show subtle differences when playing staccato and legato tunes.
Even if the strength of the keys is the same, the duration of the sound of the grand piano will have subtle differences depending on the different keys that are pressed. In order to bring out the best playing realism, CASIO has made appropriate settings for the tones of the three grand pianos. The sound generation time can also be adjusted to suit the needs of the player.
Grand piano pedal system
CASIO's grand piano pedal system continuously detects the position of the damper pedal and the angle at which the pedal is pressed to fine-tune the volume and duration of the sound. In addition, the player can adjust the pedaling position through the half-pedal position function, so that the damper effect can be integrated into the performance according to their own preferences. The GP-400BK's action sound system has the functions of damper noise and pedal action noise, which can reproduce the subtle operating sounds of a traditional grand piano.
Grand piano acoustic system
CASIO has developed a brand new exclusive speaker system for the CELVIANO Grand Hybrid, which reproduces the sound characteristics emitted from the top and bottom of a traditional grand piano. The four-channel sound system is equipped with 6 speakers, which are carefully arranged in the design structure to play music from the inside of the body. This system brings players the same sound field experience as playing a traditional grand piano.
Adjustable lid position and lid simulator
The design of the CELVIANO Grand Hybrid includes a top piano cover that can be raised and lowered manually. The position of the piano cover not only physically affects the tones played by the upper speakers, but also can accurately restore the characteristics of the adjustable cover of a traditional grand piano through the "cover position" setting.
The volume and tone of the sound produced by a grand piano are affected by the angle at which the lid is opened. The piano cover simulator can use digital technology to simulate these original sound effects. Players can choose from four kinds of piano cover angle effects to enjoy the ideal piano sound in their minds.
* Regardless of whether the top cover of the piano is opened or not, the setting parameters of the piano cover simulator will not change.
Concert hall simulator and listening position
Equipped with 12 types of concert hall simulators, each type is set according to the results of careful analysis of the acoustic characteristics collected from world-renowned venues. Each venue has 4 listening position settings. For example, the player can simulate the listening experience in the auditorium or in front of the piano.
Volume synchronization equalizer
The volume synchronization equalizer is very useful for playing softly at home or when you want to play at low volume. This function effectively balances low-volume music sounds by adjusting the sound quality of the low-range and high-range ranges. Regardless of the volume, it can continue to provide you with a pleasant playing experience.
When the piano is played at a low volume, the tone of the bass and treble range will be compensated, thereby maintaining a natural musical tone.
Headphone mode automatically creates a wide sound image when the player wears headphones, recreating the feeling of playing a traditional piano. As the listening experience of headphones is greatly improved, players can play more naturally and experience the sound field experience of a traditional grand piano.
Your performance needs realism, which starts with the first touch of a key
The player's movements are transformed into music through a number of important elements. And the most touchable must be the keys. CELVIANO Grand Hybrid brings you a sense of reality from the first time you press a key. The new revolutionary natural grand piano hammer action keyboard, equipped with full-size wooden keys. Its new mechanism, equipped with real hammers, moves in the same trajectory as the grand piano used for performance. Open the lid, you can see the hammers move on the clear panel when playing. In addition to the standard acoustic mechanism, the new hammer action repeats the same scale at a faster speed than a traditional piano, but its touch is the same as a real piano.
Natural Grand Piano Hammer Action Keyboard
CASIO has developed a new keyboard system called "Natural Grand Piano Hammer Action Keyboard", which brings the touch of a real piano. This keyboard system is equipped with full-size wooden keys, and its hammers move in the same trajectory as the grand piano used for playing. The keys of the CELVIANO Grand Hybrid are made of exactly the same materials as the keys of a traditional grand piano. The surface of the keys has been carefully treated, and the wood of the key bed has also been carefully selected. This excellent action mechanism, combined with high-quality keyboard materials, greatly improves the playing experience, just like playing a traditional grand piano.

1. Original triple induction action mechanism
CASIO's unique action mechanism brings excellent keyboard performance to CELVIANO Grand Hybrid. This mechanism includes the hammer action designed with reference to the grand piano, and three sensors, which can accurately grasp the player's emotions through the keys. Since there are no real strings, CASIO's hammer action can surpass the playing characteristics of a grand piano, providing a better playing experience, allowing players to play vibrato and easily repeat the same pitch.
2. Keyboard surface material
The white keys use acrylic, while the black keys use phenol, the same material used in modern grand pianos. This brings a cordial and familiar touch. Players will feel comfortable and confident through the keys of the CELVIANO Grand Hybrid.
3. The distance of the pivot point of the key
The pivot position of the keys is exactly the same as that of a grand piano. This makes the performance more stable, because the strength of the key touch does not change with the position of the finger on the key.
