670 – that's right six-hundred-and-seventy – tones and 200 rhythms. The CTK-5000 has a whole lot of music. And also enables you to edit and expand music already available. With the rhythm editor, elements from different rhythms can be combined (normal/variation/fill-in/intro/ending) and edited. The flag ship of the CTK-series is also equipped with an SD card slot or an internal user memory (flash memory) for saving new styles. Your own ideas can be recorded quickly and easily with the sequencer (6 tracks/5 songs). For stage performances, the CTK-5000 comes with a registration memory with 32 set-ups (eight x four slots) and line-out connections.
670 AHL tones
The high-quality 670 AHL tones create clear and dynamic sounds, which unfold in all sounds and rhythms found in classical piano pieces, as well as many other genres.
Sound diversity at its best: the CTK-5000 can play up to 48 voices at the same time, turning interpretation of a wide range of musical pieces into a pure pleasure.
61 dynamic touch keys
The 61 'piano look' keys give the keyboard a sophisticated, elegant appearance and provide the ideal scope for musical inspiration.
Step-up learning system
The improved step-up learning system from CASIO is based on the principal "learning by playing": as in traditional piano lessons, the practice piece is split up into individual bar sections and learnt step-by-step. The small learning units guarantee motivation and learning success.
» Step 1: Listen
» Step 2: See and repeat with visual support
» Step 3: Remember and play without help
When the "Auto" mode is switched on, a set practice goal must be reached before the next bar section is displayed. With the "Next" mode you can set your own learning speed.
200 rhythms provide you with a colourful overview of the world of music.
Quick access: you can store up to 32 setups (8 benches with 4 memory spaces each) in the registration memory.
A feature with fun factor: the simple sampling of sounds via an external sound source such as MP3 and CD players (via Audio-in) or microphone (via Mic-in) offers interesting effects and amusing compositions. Whether a bar of your favourite musical piece, loops or drum sounds, human voices or noises of any kind – the recorded samples (up to 10 seconds) can be played via the keyboard and effects added as desired.
With the arpeggiator, a chord played on the keyboard is divided into a sequence of individual notes repeated in succession. Perfect for all dance or electro styles!
The "Music Preset Library" contains 305 "one touch settings“ based on popular rock and pop songs. The useful pre-settings for rhythm, tone, tempo, effects etc. makes time-consuming searches for the right settings a thing of the past. This assistant makes playing the "top 300" child's play!
Pop rhythm with a touch of jazz, jazz rhythm with a shot of pop: with the rhythm editor, elements from different rhythms can be combined and edited. 10 user slots are available for individual style editing.
This practice is fun and exercises your mind too: Music Challenge is a play function where the player has to hit the illuminated keys as fast as possible. On keyboards without illuminated keys, musicians can play via the large LC display: The aim of the game is to hit the correct keys as quickly as possible.
The scale tuning functions open up a whole new world of oriental quarter tones and the tempering of baroque or classical music.
USB Plug & Play/Song expansion
The USB/MIDI (GM) connection enables further Midfile songs to be loaded into the internal memory via the "Song expansion". No software installation from a CD-ROM required thanks to Plug & Play and the USB driver is compatible with both Mac and Windows (from Mac OSX 10.03 and Windows XP/Vista).
With the sequencer (6 track/5 songs), you can record your own ideas quickly and easily in real-time (capacity: 12,000 notes).
Play or sing along – a solution for the future: connect a CD or MP3 player to the Audio input of your CTK-5000. Your favourite tunes are played via the loudspeakers of the keyboard in "half playback" – you can play along for the keyboard part. A good alternative to MIDI playback, particularly if you don't want to edit the song.
SD card slot
The innovative SD memory medium offers a simple means of expanding the internal song memory of the CTK-5000 to limitless levels.
Pitch bend wheel
Playing aids such as the pitch bend wheel enable you to temporarily change the pitch of played notes, to authentically reproduce guitar or saxophone playing techniques.
Fit for the stage: The line-out enables you to connect your high-grade keyboard with stage equipment such as loud speakers and mixers or your stereo system at home.
Peaceful enjoyment: the CTK-5000 comes equipped with a headphone connection.
Powerful loudspeaker system
Powerful sound: the amplifier system with four loudspeakers with 2 x 6 watt creates a harmonious and uniform sound.
