The new Privia PX-5S redefines the stage piano category with unprecedented sound quality and performance features in a lightweight design that is supremely portable. Featuring tone editing, insert effects, MIDI controller capabilities, an 88 Key, Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action II Keyboard and weighing only 24 lbs., the Privia PX-5S is ready to take stage.

At the heart of the PX-5S Stage Piano is Casio’s proprietary AiR sound source which provides incredible realism, detail and expression for grand piano sounds. In the PX-5S, the power of AiR has been expanded to provide stunning fidelity and control over other instrument tones and effects with 256 notes of polyphony.

In addition to Privia’s award winning grand piano sounds, the PX-5S has an arsenal of newly developed sounds including classic electric piano, harpsichord and clav sounds. Some of these tones are complete with release samples, amplifier and speaker simulations for an incredibly authentic experience.

The PX-5S is a powerful four zone controller, complete with 4 knobs and 6 sliders all of which are completely configurable to control internal sounds, effects parameters or send continuous controllers to other gear. Each zone on the PX-5S can control an internal sound, an external MIDI device or both simultaneously.

The PX-5S redefines what a stage piano should be, providing an arsenal of other sounds and creative tools. The PX-5S includes powerful Hex Layer tones complete with real-time filters and also features four programmable arpeggiators and multitrack phrase sequencing.

To easily access the sounds you need for your performance are Stage Settings. Each Stage Setting configures up to 4 keyboard zones, knob / slider assignments, phrases, arpeggios and effects settings. Each of the 4 zones in a Stage Setting can control an internal PX-5S tone, an external MIDI device or both simultaneously.
The PX-5S has 100 completely user configurable Stage Settings which are arranged in 10 banks of 10 each. When you’re within a bank, each Stage Setting is just one button press away allowing you to seamlessly switch configurations during a live show. Stage Settings can easily be edited, moved or replaced using the PX-5S’s Data Manager software.

The PX-5S has an array of physical controllers available including Pitch and Modulation wheels, 4 knobs, 6 sliders and 2 footswitch inputs. The assignments of these controllers are configured separately in each Stage Setting. As an example, for an electric piano Stage Setting the knobs and sliders can be configured to control parameters such as amplifier gain, speaker selection, key-off noise, effects and EQ. In another Stage Setting with several sounds layered, the sliders could be configured to control volume over each zone or component.
Each knob, slider or pedal can simultaneously control two parameters at once, offering superior control over internal tones or external MIDI devices. In addition minimum and maximum values for these controllers can be set, allowing your adjustments to be precise and musical. You can specify if a Zone on the PX-5S responds to a physical controller or not.
Pedal inputs on the PX-5S are also highly configurable and include Envelope Response. This allows an ordinary footswitch to control a parameter over time, allowing you to do volume swells, filter sweeps and control effects such as a wah-wah effect in an incredibly musical way. The pedal inputs on the PX-5S also auto-detect the polarity of the footswitch, allowing virtually any brand of footswitch to be used.

Hex Layers were originally introduced in the award winning XW-P1 synthesizer. Due to the power of the AiR sound source, PX-5S takes them several steps further. A Hex Layer is a single complex tone that can be made up of six sample layers. These can be stacked (layered), split or velocity switched. Each of those six layers gets its own filter (LP, HP, BP) and filter envelope, its own AMP envelope and pitch envelope (all 7 stage envelopes). You can even have layers that are triggered on key-release. A Hex Layer tone gets its own insert effect but you can choose if a layer uses that insert or the amount that goes to the system effects (chorus, delay, reverb). Best of all, the PX-5S can use two Hex Layer tones simultaneously.

The PX-5S includes two unique and highly configurable performance tools a Phrase Sequencer and an Arpeggiator. Each Zone within a Stage Setting on the PX-5S can choose to use an Arpeggiator or trigger a Phrase.
The Arpeggiator in the PX-5S is fully programmable. There are 100 presets and room for 100 of your own. There are up to 16 steps in the Arpeggiator and it can be configured to play at different note values such as 8th notes or 16th note triplets. Particularly unique to the PX-5S, the Arpeggiator can be used to trigger parameter changes such as panning, filters and more, with or without triggering notes, allowing you to add animation to your parts.
The PX-5S also includes 100 phrases with room for 900 of your own. Phrases can be riffs, drum patterns, controller movements or longer musical events that can be triggered live from the keyboard. Phrases can include things like bass lines and horn riffs that will transpose across a range of keys in the zone. Using the Data Manager software for the PX-5S you can convert standard .MID files for use as phrases. This gives you access to thousands of free and commercially available .MID files for use in the PX-5S.

Using a standard USB thumb drive, your performances or moments of inspiration can easily be captured as a standard .WAV file. Simply press the Audio Record button two times and the PX-5S is ready to record. Similarly, the PX-5S can play back .WAV files that are put on the USB drive. The second footswitch can be used to start or stop playback while you play along with your own pre-recorded backing tracks.

At 24 lbs., the PX-5S is the lightest weighted action stage piano ever built. This makes it easy to get to and from your performance. While you’re at your performance you never need to worry about interruptions in power as the PX-5S can operate for hours with 8 standard AA batteries. So wherever you are the PX-5S is easy to travel with and be up and running in an instant.

Casio continues the tradition or providing "class compliant" USB connectivity on Privia digital pianos. This allows Privia to be used with Mac or Windows computers without the need for downloading drivers. Class Compliant USB MIDI also allows Privia digital pianos can also be used as a controller the Apple iPad simply with the use of Apple's Camera Connection Kit.
