Step-Up Lesson System
Designed to get novice pianists playing right out of the box, Casio's built-in Step-Up Lessons guide you through 152 built-in songs at your own pace by breaking them down into easy-to-learn phrases. The large, backlit LCD display shows musical notation and correct hand positioning, while you listen and repeat each phrase with your right hand, left hand, and finally both hands together. The CTK-4200 evaluates your performance so you can track you progress. There's even a Music Challenge game that tests your reaction time as you play notes in response to prompts on the screen. Intermediate players will love the built-in Chord Book; great for looking up the notes of chords you don't know how to play. You can even record yourself playing along with any of the 152 built-in songs.
600 Sounds and Built-in 6-Track Recorder
Even a fledgling keyboardist can create songs with the Casio CTK-4200's built-in recorder. With 6 tracks to play with, you can record the right-hand part first, then layer in the left hand, and have tracks to spare for more parts. Create a lush arrangement with 600 built-in tones, including stereo grand piano, organ, violin, flute, orchestra, and much more. (If you ever get lost in those 600 tones, the CTK-4200 has a handy dedicated Piano button to get you back where you started.) You can even turn on Casio's Auto-Accompaniment feature to record rhythm, bass, or chords to your song automatically. And you can transpose the keyboard up to one octave up or down, to give you access to a traditional piano's full 88 notes.
Connect With USB or Standard 1/8" Audio
In addition to a standard 1/8-inch headphone output for silent practicing, the CTK-4200 sports a 1/8-inch audio input, which transforms the keyboard into a stereo speaker system for an external MP3 player. Play along with your iPod! You can even sample up to 10 seconds from your MP3 player (or any external source) with the CTK-4200's sampling function -- grab a drum sound or an audio clip from your computer, and trigger it from the keyboard. Or plug the class-compliant USB port into your Mac or PC to use it as a MIDI controller with most popular composition software.
