Casio AP-700

Part of the Celviano range, the Casio AP-700 is a full sized 88-note digital piano. It comes with a keyboard built to act and feel like a real piano. Its recreation of the piano sound is highly realistic and pays attention to all the nuances. It also has many effects, electronic connections, and extra features.


The Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II is Casio’s best and most realistic keyboard. It is weighted just like an acoustic keyboard. As the name suggests it is graded so that the lower keys are slightly heavier than the high ones. Its touch response has 5 dynamic levels, these affect the volume of the note; the harder the key is depressed the louder the sound. The keys themselves are made from materials that mimic the behaviour and feel of ebony and ivory.

A damper, sostenuto, and soft pedals are built into the body of the AP-700, there is half-pedalling on the damper pedal. 


The AP-700 makes itself known through the Acoustic and Intelligence Resonator (AiR) Grand Sound Source. This reproduces many of the subtle effects a real piano has on the notes it produces, so the decay of a note, the resonances of the strings and damper pedal, among much more, have a similar effect here as in an acoustic piano.

There is lid simulation over the speakers on the back of the AP-700. This is just like in a grand piano but on a more limited scale; opening the lid makes the sound brighter. The amps combine to give 60W of power, which is enough for small performances and more than adequate for practice and learning.

There are 26 different voices on the AP-700. This piano has been developed with C. Bechstein and as a result the voices have a distinctive sound that copies the piano making of Berlin, Hamburg, and Vienna for a specific cultural effect.

Extra features

There is a vast repository of pre-recorded songs on the AP-700. The concert play feature has 15 songs that the player can accompany and learn as if they were playing with a full orchestra. Another 60-song library with 10 extra spaces for the user’s own compositions is also present.

Effects include brilliance, hall simulators, chorus, DSP, and EQ. There are Split and Layer modes in which two different voices can be used at the same time. A Duet mode halves the keyboard giving two equal octaves ranges on each of the halves, perfect for tuition.

The MIDI recorder has space for a single song with two tracks, and a playback feature. The USB flash drive and Type B drive can help here with exporting the recording and linking the AP-700 up to computers.

Other connections include AUX In/Out, 2 headphone jacks, an additional pedal port, and an AC adaptor to connect the AP-700 to a power source.
