OVERVIEW

The PX-5S is part of the Casio Privia line of digital pianos. The PX-5S is loaded with a collection of acoustic pianos, vintage keyboard, and synth sounds, and has powerful controller features and sequencing tools that sets it apart from other keyboards.

POWERED BY AIR
At the heart of the PX-5S Stage Piano is Casio's proprietary AiR sound source which provides incredible realism, detail and expression for grand piano sounds. In the PX-5S, the power of AiR has been expanded to provide stunning fidelity and control over other instrument tones and effects with 256 notes of polyphony.

OLD SCHOOL, NEW CLASS
In addition to Privia's award winning grand piano sounds, the PX-5S has an arsenal of newly developed sounds including classic electric piano, harpsichord and clav sounds. Some of these tones are complete with release samples, amplifier and speaker simulations for an incredibly authentic experience.

SERIOUS CONTROL
The PX-5S is a powerful four zone controller, complete with 4 knobs and 6 sliders all of which are completely configurable to control internal sounds, effects parameters or send continuous controllers to other gear. Each zone on the PX-5S can control an internal sound, an external MIDI device or both simultaneously.

NEW SONIC TERRITORY
The PX-5S redefines what a stage piano should be, providing an arsenal of other sounds and creative tools. The PX-5S includes powerful Hex Layer tones complete with real-time filters and also features four programmable arpeggiators and multitrack phrase sequencing.

MIDI Out/Thru FAIL

    Best Uses

      Comments about Casio Privia PX-5S Pro Stage Piano:

      I am so disappointed! This keyboard is perfect except for one glaring flaw. The MIDI Out/Thru only works one way or the other, it is NOT a merger. This means there is never a reason to plug anything INTO the MIDI In if you want it to go through. Seriously CASIO, you didn't allow both the thru and out of the MIDI port to work at the same time (MERGE)? There are work-arounds, but I hate the lack of flexibility here. This was a five star plus keyboard, until I found the one problem with it. For me, it is a doozy. I'd still buy this keyboard again, but beware the MIDI jack implementation is faulty. #px5salmostperfect

      Comments about Casio Privia PX-5S Pro Stage Piano:

      First off, I have owned a Privia home-style piano for several years and I am happy with it. Several people play them professionally in my area. So when it was time to buy a stage piano that would be 'stage friendly,' I thought the PX-5S would be a hands-down winner. On paper, it certainly is a winner, IMO. The feature-set is quite good indeed. However, I need a strong acoustic piano sound above all else, and after living with PX-5S for two weeks I finally admitted (although I didn't want to) that the piano sound is not to my taste. The top register very good, however I found the mid-range portion of the piano to sound like a piano with only (1) string, instead of three. The bass registers were OK for me; however I think many people would agree that the three middle octaves are where we get most of our work done. My other issue was with the touch of the piano. The physical action was good for me, however, 'how' it played the notes dynamically felt strange to me, despite my experimenting by editing touch settings in the 'system' menu. FYI, I use a Roland KC-300 keyboard amp, or a single JBL EON 2 (15") for amplification. I really wanted to LOVE this instrument, but I just can't. I'm giving four stars because this is a good instrument, and will satisfy many musicians' needs without question.. AND, sound is subjective.

        This keyboard does everything I needed and wanted it to do and more-you'd have to get to $2K to $3K to get anywhere near it in another manufacturer. Strongly recommended if you're serious about keyboards.

        I have owned most all brands including the privia 330 which I loved... this is better... the controller functions alone are worth the price.. I will never own another board that weighs in at 60 lbs... An absolute joy to play... and when you have one... you'll understand and be like a shiny object fan boy or girl ... It is that cool... I played it on battery power through a battery powered Roland amp and everyone was stunned on the clarity of the sound... It is no longer about the money spent but about the execution of amazing technology

        Comments about Casio Privia PX-5S Pro Stage Piano:

        Really great sound quality and action on the keys. The 4 knobs and 6 sliders make adjusting your sound on the fly easy as can be. 100 pre-set stage settings mean you can put on a show straight out of the box. Literally, pick a song and there's a stage setting that will do a pretty bang-up job without any editing. Can't find what you're looking for - you can edit ANY tone and create your own stage settings, the sky is the limit!

        Best Feature - EVERYTHING is assignable, 2 pedals, 6 sliders, 4 knobs - do whatever you want!

        Slght downside - lots and lots of options that can be confusing at first (check out Mike Martin's great live clinic for help http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFPooBIzCLo )

        Comments about Casio Privia PX-5S Pro Stage Piano:

        I played Casio's predecessor to this model the PX-3 and the PX-5 is a substantial upgrade. The piano sound with Casio's new AIR engine is so much closer to the real thing. There is a lot more realistic sympathetic resonance that was missing on the PX-3. The sound is much more detailed giving you a lot more expressive possibilities. I think the piano is in the same league as Nord's stage piano which is much more expensive.

        The electric piano and clav sounds are also outstanding.

        The PX-5 also has usable organs with Leslie simulation. It's not as good as other I've heard, but if your main bag isn't organ, the PX-5 should be equal to the task.

        Although the PX-5 has an itsy bitsy screen they've made navigation as painless as possible given this limitation. Its saving grace is the free PC software editor which has a nice clean and straight-forward user interface. It makes editing easy, breezy. I haven't tried editing on the keyboard itself, and I don't see myself going down that road given the availability of the editing software.

        The hex layers are also darn cool. I haven't done much with them yet, but they sound great.

        I love the key bed of the PX-5. It has a simulated ivory texture on the keys, which was a little weird at first, but I quickly learned to like it. The action is great and it's hard to believe it's not actually weighted.

        The assignable knobs and sliders are about all you really need for live performance. For example, if you have a split keyboard you can now mix your sound with these controls. It's great to add reverb and delay on the fly.

        This keyboard is an incredible value! It's a really robust stage piano and less than half the price of some other comparable keyboards.

        Comments about Casio Privia PX-5S Pro Stage Piano:

        The Casio PX-5S Pro Stage Piano is a beautiful instrument. You get more than what you pay for here, with a huge variety of sounds and features. It can be frustrating at first to figure out navigation, how to create your own tones, stage settings, and such. The manual is not very helpful, but with the available YouTube videos out there, and discussions on the Casio website, it becomes much easier, and it's a great setup! Overall, this is a great keyboard at a great price, and I would highly recommend this for the experienced pianist looking for performing, and working on compositions.

        Comments about Casio Privia PX-5S Pro Stage Piano:

        The PX-5S has a great sound set, complete control over said sounds (effects, EQ, even waveform), and works extremely well as a MIDI controller. It performed well as my sole keyboard at a recent gig. I thought the electric pianos on the PX-3 were good, but the EPs on the PX-5 are stellar. I haven't even begun to scratch the surface of the Hex Layers, Arpeggios, and Phrase Recording/Editing. I played a Yamaha S90-ES for a few years as part of a church band, and that has been my "benchmark" since then. I think the PX-5S does everything the S-90 does but is easier to program and is much, much lighter. The weak spot on this keyboard is the owner's manual that is packaged with the keyboard. It doesn't get into any editing. You need to download an additional "tutorial," and even that isn't very useful. The support from Casio and from the PX-5S user community is outstanding, however, and there is no shortage of tutorial material on YouTube and Facebook.

        Comments about Casio Privia PX-5S Pro Stage Piano:

        Key action is bit heavier feeling than an acoustic grand but has great velocity sensing and after touch. I found the ivory texture on the naturals and the ebony grain texture on the sharps easy to get used to. I bought this over the PX-350 because the Rhodes and Wurlitzer tones sounded better to my ear and I also wanted the synth tones. Also, I can use it with my little Yamaha THR-10 amp and go with batteries on both if I feel like it.

        Some of the preset tones get scrambled when you move the sliders and then put them back where they were. I have not yet checked my firmware against the version on the Casio website to see if that will be a fix. Here's hoping they will add more tones and a system that makes them easy to upload into the keyboard's preset bank. Maybe Casio can do something like TC Electronics Tone Print and have famous musicians develop some tones. I'd love to see an iPad app that either uses the Apple camera USB kit or a custom iPad cable developed by Casio. I have read that some of the iPad Midi control apps will work but I need to get the USB cable first so I can try that out.

        The keyboard feels heavier and more solid than the advertised 25 pounds. The rotary knobs and sliders do have a consumer feel to them that makes me wonder if they will hold up long term. This keyboard is well worth the asking price and would be totally killer with an easy way to update the presets without having to be a synth programmer.

          Comments about Casio Privia PX-5S Pro Stage Piano:

          This keyboard is lightweight, with 256 note polyphony, and good sounds. However, it is complex to operate, the manuals are confusing, and casio so far has not been responsive to my emails. For instance there are 100 programmed stage settings, which you can change to get desired performances. I did not get this from the manuals as to the number, but had to watch multiple on line videos. It comes with one manual, but you have to figure out and download a second on line. Concerning some of the videos they state you can use some of the sliders for a drawbar organ. However, I have been unable to find any patches that allow you to do this. Maybe its there, maybe it needs additional programming. Having said all this, the keyboard is lightweight, sounds great, and it has a lot of potential. If they could find someone to write better instructions people would get a lot more use out of it. Despite my concerns, I would buy it again.
