Since 1980, Casio’s mission has been to help musicians find their voice. Now, the Casiotone CT-S1000V gives your music a brand new voice: Its own. Along with 800 stunning Tones and a wealth of musical tools, the CT-S1000V features new Vocal Synthesis technology that brings your words to life.
Boldly defying convention, the CT-S1000V does what no other keyboard can do: Speak or type your lyrics into the free Lyric Creator app for iOS/Android, transfer them to the CT- S1000V, and play the keys to hear your words come alive. Choose from multiple vocalist models, and adjust age, vibrato, portamento and other parameters in real time. It can produce choirs, robotic sounds, vocoder-like textures, and more. You can even create a custom vocalist based on an audio recording.
The CT-S1000V features 61 full-size touch responsive keys in a sleek, stylish case that weighs 10 pounds. The easy-to-read LCD display and intuitive controls give you everything you need to perform and create. Use the pitch bend wheel and modulation knob to add natural (or supernatural) expression to your playing, and use the 3 assignable knobs to tweak EQ, filter, effects, and many other settings on the fly.
The AiX Sound Source delivers sound quality that you’d expect from a keyboard costing hundreds, if not thousands more. Power on the CT-S1000V, and you’ll be presented with a dynamic, expressive German concert grand piano placed in a virtual concert hall. The huge collection of 800 Tones also has stellar examples of electric pianos, organs, strings, synths, and so much more, with Advanced Tones adding complex layers that react to your playing. A collection of vintage keyboard sounds is also included, featuring recreations of timeless, sought-after keyboard instruments. We’ve even included classic Casio sounds from our VL, VZ and CZ series.
The CT-S1000V’s 243 full-accompaniment Rhythms make it a perfect jamming partner. Simply play a few notes, and it creates an entire backing band that reacts effortlessly to the way you play. The variety of Rhythms spans the globe as well as the history of recorded music, so no matter what kind of mood you’re in, your Casiotone is always ready to back you up with vibrant acoustic drums, vintage drum machines, global percussion instruments, rock-solid basslines, horn ensembles, rhythm guitars, and much more.
There are four ways to experience the CT-S1000V’s amazing sound quality at its best. First, the bass-ported stereo speaker system delivers eyebrow-raising punch and clarity throughout the entire volume range. Second, plug in a good set of headphones for personal play. Third, connect the 1/4″ line outputs to any amplifier, PA system or mixer. Fourth, push the SURROUND button, and the speakers will place you right in the middle of your music.
Make the world your instrument by using the built-in audio sampler to create custom Tones and drum kits. You can even sample from incoming Bluetooth audio. A 6-track sequencer is always on hand to capture and build your creations.
The CT-S1000V fits perfectly into your everyday life. It’s also gig-ready, with 1/4″ line outputs to connect to amps and PA systems. If you’re tired of being tied down, just put in 6 AA batteries, attach a strap, and play anywhere. Use the included WU-BT10 Bluetooth MIDI/audio adapter to control other gear remotely, giving you the freedom to take center stage.
The CT-S1000V makes it easy to create your own signature sounds. You can layer, split, and customize the versatile DSP effects, then save your setups as Registrations for easy recall at the touch of a button.
The microUSB port connects your CT-S1000V to any PC, Mac, iOS or Android device with no drivers or installation needed. Use the free Casio Music Space app for iOS/Android to learn to learn MIDI songs, play audio files with pitch and tempo adjustments, view PDF scores and more.
With the included WU-BT10 Bluetooth MIDI/audio adapter, you can even connect wirelessly to your favorite devices to control them via MIDI, or to use the CT-S1000V as a Bluetooth speaker.
