Casio continues the tradition or providing &ldquoclass compliant” USB connectivity on Portable digital pianos. This allows Casio Portable digital pianos to be used with Mac or Windows computers without the need for downloading drivers. Class Compliant USB MIDI also allows Casio digital pianos to be used as a controller for the Apple iPad by using Apple’s Camera Connection Kit.
Casio’s CTK-2400 offers 48 notes of polyphony so you don’t have to worry about dropping notes. Using the sustain pedal for multiple notes, playing big chords, adding rhythms and layering sounds can deplete the polyphony memory quickly resulting in dropped notes. When searching for a keyboard, take the amount of polyphony into consideration.
