Great-sounding 76-note auto-accompaniment keyboard with built-in Oriental sounds, scales and rhythms.
The AT-5 Oriental Keyboard comes with a range of functions to satisfy every requirement, and proves itself as a multi-functional creative keyboard with its multitude of oriental rhythms.Different scale presets can be selected and fine-tuned in quarter tone increments using the oriental scale setting with its memory function. The Arabic scale is authentically reproduced. With its many oriental sounds and rhythms, it enables musicians to immerse themselves in Middle Eastern styles.
Oriental Scale Setting
The tuning of the built-in sound source can be easily changed by a quarter tone to recreate the scale required for Oriental music. The Oriental scale can be used for both composing and live performances. The final scale setting can also be applied to Auto Accompaniments as well.
The Song Sequencer provides 16 tracks plus one system track that supports recording of up to five songs and a total of approximately 30,000 notes. Each individual musical instrument part can be recorded to a different track for real multi-track recording capabilities. In addition to real-time recording of keyboard and Auto Accompaniment play, the Song Sequencer also supports punch-in and punch-out spot recording of specific parts of a song, and event editing lets you edit recorded data note-by-note. A full selection of editing tools includes event insert, event delete, event copy, quantize, a locator feature for selecting the range of notes to be edited, and more. A step recording function also lets you input notes by specifying the length and pitch. Completed recordings can be converted to SMF (Standard MIDI File) format and stored to an SD memory card.
Up to eight tracks (drum, percussion, bass, chord 1 through chord 5) can be edited to create original accompaniment patterns (INTRO, NORMAL, NORMAL FILL-IN, VARIATION, VARIATION FILL-IN). In addition to recording over each individual accompaniment part of an existing rhythm, an event editing function gives you total control over each aspect of recorded data, an Easy Edit function lets you combine accompaniment from multiple built-in rhythms to create original rhythms, and mixer capabilities give you control over the tones, volume levels, reverb, and other parameters of each part. A full selection of editing tools includes event insert, event delete, event copy, quantize, and more. Memory is provided for storage of up to 100 different user rhythms, which can be recalled with the touch of a key.
Casio continues the tradition of providing œclass compliant USB connectivity on Workstation Keyboards. This allows Casio Workstation Keyboards to be used with Mac or Windows computers without the need to download drivers. Class Compliant USB MIDI also allows Workstation Keyboards to be used as a controller for the Apple iPad by using Apple' Camera Connection Kit.
Keyboard play, Auto Accompaniment, Song Sequencer play, and sound input via the INST IN and/or MIC IN terminals can be recorded as digital audio data to an SD memory card inserted in the card slot for later playback. Of course, you can play along on the keyboard during playback from an SD memory card. Saved audio files can also be transferred to a computer connected via USB for long-term storage. Special Data Manager 6.0 application software, downloadable from the URL shown below, can be used to convert data to WAV format, which can be played back on a computer. All of this greatly simplifies the task of creating original demo recordings.
