With the WK220, Casio have really created something special…
Featuring 76 touch sensitive piano style keys, the Casio WK220 is a Portable Arranger Keyboard that is not only ideal for people wanting to learn to play the piano or keyboard, it has enough high quality tones, rhythms and features to suit live performance.
600 superb AHL keyboard voices along with 48-note polyphony, make the WK220 suitable for even the most eclectic musical tastes.
180 on board rhythms (styles) cover just about any musical idiom. Casio have really listened to musicians and have included a very special feature not seen before at this price – you can change the rhythm mid song (to add a little extra spice) and the tempo does not change.
This feature may not seem to be important…unless you are playing live, then it could be the difference between you sounding like a pro or…
If you are a beginner, the three-level Step-up learning system and various entertainment functions provide the perfect opportunity for creative development.
The WK-220 offers an amazing array of high-quality professional keyboard voices, engaging rhythms and songs across all music styles.
For those of you with a focus on playing piano, when you buy your WK220 from us, we will include an Italian made Quicklok Piano Style sustain pedal with a retail price of $89.00 absolutely free of charge! We will also include a Keyboard Stand…free of charge!
High Quality Tones
All of the 600 built-in tones, including piano and acoustic instrument tones, now sound better than ever before! 48 note maximum polyphony provides plenty of margin to minimise the chance of notes being dropped when tones are layered and when playing with Auto Accompaniment.
Piano Style Keyboard
An easy to play keyboard with 76 keys styled in the fashion resembling that of an acoustic piano.
Touch Response lets you add delicate nuances to notes by varying how much pressure you apply to keyboard keys.
Built in is a 5 song, 6 track recorder where you can compose and store your own music. A great tool for capturing your creative moments as well as for practicing.
Use the step up lesson feature to learn new songs. You can even load in your own user songs (SMF format, via computer USB) and the keyboard will help you learn.
Chord Book chord book
You can use the Chord Book to look up chords you do not know how to play. You can hear what a chord sounds like and view on the screen the notes that make up that chord. It can even show you inverted forms of the chord, making the Chord Book a valuable reference.
Using Registrations, you can save your favourite setups, including tone, rhythm, and other settings for instant recall when you need them. Registration memory simplifies performance of complex pieces that require successive tone and rhythm changes.
You can sample a sound from a portable audio player, or other device, and then play the sound on the keyboard. You also can use sampled sounds to compose music. The sampling feature is a great way to create new sounds that are highly creative.
Audio In / Mic In
Connecting a music player to the AUDIO IN jack causes the audio from the player to be output through the keyboard’s speakers. Of course, you can play along with the audio, which means you can enjoy jamming with your favourite artists. You can even plug in a microphone and sing along hearing your voice come through the speakers or headphones.
Arpeggiator / Auto-Harmonise
With the arpeggiator, you can play various arpeggios and other phrases automatically by simply pressing keys on the keyboard. Both arpeggio and stroke play are available for guitar, which provides you with a wide range of versatility. An Auto Harmonize feature automatically adds harmony to melody notes you play with your right hand to add greater depth to your melodies.
