Casio Casiotone CT-S500 Keyboard
Wallet-friendly Arranger Keyboard with High-end Features
Casio’s Casiotone CT-S500 packs a powerful sonic punch with 800 lifelike sounds in a sleek, highly portable package. It leverages 61 full-size, touch-responsive keys, making for an absolute joyous playing experience, no matter your preferred style. If you’re looking to practice or compose with a backing track, Casio has you covered with 243 full-accompaniment rhythms that include acoustic drums, global instruments, bass lines, drum machines, horn ensembles, and more. Once you have your ideas laid down, the CT-S500 offers incredibly deep editing tools — three assignable knobs can be programmed to adjust filter, effects, and modulation. A favorite feature of keyboardists is the built-in audio sampler that gives you the ability to create your own custom tones and drum sounds. Whether you’re an arranger, performer, or a beginner just starting your musical journey, the Casiotone CT-S500 delivers world-class tones in an affordable package!
Casio’s AiX Sound Source provides the CT-S500 with rich and expressive sounds that belie its affordable price. This keyboard contains 800 tones that authentically capture the sounds of world-class grand pianos, electric pianos, strings, organs, synths, and more. The Advanced Tones feature intuitively adds complex layers that are responsive to your personal playing style. What’s more, Casio has also included a vast collection of keyboard replications that mimic specific vintage models, as well as sounds from some of the most beloved Casio VL, VZ, and CZ keyboards.
