Two New Casio Sampling Keyboards


Casio America, Inc. has announced the debut of two new digital sampling keyboards – the CTK-2090 and LK-175V. They say that these introductions are the latest in Casio's long history of developing innovative sampling keyboards for young musicians. Here's the rest of what they have to say...

Nearly 30 years ago, Casio introduced the SK-1, an 8-bit sampler, which broke new ground in terms of portability and cool sounds; but it also offered the ability to synthesize sounds starting from a neutral waveform, envelopes, vibrato, portamento, rhythms, and sampling. Today, the CTK-2090 and LK-175V digital keyboards build on that pioneering innovation to enable users to layer up to five different sounds to create their own tracks; these are two new introductions within the Sound eFX series of keyboards. Both keyboards have two sampling modes: short and full. Short Sampling Mode allows users to create up to five sounds 0.4 seconds in length, whereas Full Sampling Mode allows users to create one two-second sound. With a built-in sampling microphone, users can also sample their voice and other ambient sounds to create a variety of sampled tones and effects for later use.

Casio's electronic musical instruments offer a comprehensive feature set geared to enrich the learning experience. Both the CTK-2090 and LK-175V are outfitted with Casio's Step-up Lesson System, which enables beginners to learn 152 built-in songs, phase-by-phase, at their own individual pace.  With the LCD display, students can learn both music notation and correct hand positioning, while Casio's innovative lesson system evaluates performance so users can track their progress. And with the LK-175V, users can practice with the help of the lighted 61-Key Piano Style Touch-Response keyboard making learning both fun and entertaining.

Additional features include a 92mm X 40mm LCD display, 150 built-in rhythms, 400 built-in tones, 110 built-in songs, USB port, and more. Each model also comes with a music stand, song book and X stand. 

Pricing and Availability:
The CTK-2090 for $169.99 and the LK-175V for $199.99 will be sold exclusively at Target locations nationwide beginning in September.

"Full Sampling Mode allows users to create one two-second sound"... Is that true? only one two seconds sample?! Why?!? To make it as frustrating as the samplers from the 80ies?

Yes but that short sampling time also made the user more creative.
