The grand piano sounds in the AP-250 deliver an unprecedented level of realism and expression. Four dynamic levels of stereo piano samples are integrated with Casio's proprietary Linear Morphing System, for a grand piano sound with seamless transitions and a superior dynamic range. For added realism, the AP-250 simulates the sound of open strings when the dampers are raised by the pedal using Acoustic Resonance DSP.

Celviano's Duet Mode allows student and teacher to practice at the keyboard simultaneously.
To complete the piano experience, the AP-250 features128 notes of polyphony, enough horsepower to the most demanding musical passages and the ability to layer sounds and use the damper pedal without worry of dropped notes. In addition the AP-250 can connect effortlessly to your computer via USB without the need to install drivers.
POWERED BY AIR
Casio’s new AiR technology, redefines the Celviano digital piano experience with richer and more genuine sounds. The AiR sound source enables the new Celviano models to deliver first-class realism and detail by providing damper resonance, which enhances the sounds of the dampers lifting off the strings when pushing on the sustain petal. Casio’s AiR technology also compensates for the speed at which hammers strike strings at different velocities and key ranges, imperative for those who crave the authentic sounds and feel of a traditional grand piano.
Casio continues the tradition of providing “class compliant” USB connectivity on Celviano digital pianos. This allows Celviano to be used with Mac or Windows computers without the need to download drivers. Class Compliant USB MIDI also allows Celviano digital pianos to be used as a controller for the Apple iPad by using Apple’s Camera Connection Kit.
