Casio AT-3 Oriental Electronic Keyboard (61-Key)

No longer available at zZounds
Tune the Casio AT-3 keyboard by quarter-tones to play authentic Oriental and Arabic music with 800 built-in sounds and 250 auto-accompaniment rhythms.

The Casio AT-3 Oriental Keyboard package includes numerous oriental rhythms, allowing the user to set up and store quarter tones on the keyboard using the memory function. Authenticity and the fullness of the sound were the main focus when developing the oriental sounds and styles package, so a huge sound range is guaranteed!

Oriental scale buttons give musicians the ability to select different scale templates, and to set up their own scales by fine-tuning the notes. Arabic scales, with tones that typically lie "between" the intervals of a piano octave, can therefore be played authentically. The gold-colored housing and Arabic script make the AT-3 the perfect instrument for a very special musical performance.

A versatile selection of Oriental tones and rhythms built in

54 built-in Oriental tones include the "oud", "qanun", "nay" and more. A total of 83 built-in Oriental accompaniment rhythms covers everything from traditional to modern music. High-quality sound supports both Oriental music performance and composing.

Quick configuration of Oriental music scales

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.

Multi-track Recorder Capabilities

The Song Sequencer provides 16 tracks plus one system track that supports recording of up to read more 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.

Create rich, realistic rhythm sections of your very own

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.

Great for creating original demo recordings

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.

The volume, pan, reverb send and other settings can be adjusted to exactly the levels you want for each individual part. You can also adjust sounds input via the Mic In terminal and Inst In terminal.

Casio AT3 is best for anyone who is a hard working busy individual. Love to play music once a week don't want to much investment? Then this is the keyboard, because you can still relive the moments you choose and get a decent sound quality. Don't expect the sounds to blow you away, but considering the price and the options and the idea of the sounds being 70% close to the real instruments. It's defiantly a steal. Thank you Casio for not being cheap building this keyboard. A+++++
