Casio PX-5S Privia Pro Digital Stage Piano
The Casio PX-5S Privia Pro Digital Stage Piano provides a truly remarkable feel, sound quality and portability that redefines what a stage piano can be. Features like tone editing, insert effects, MIDI controller capabilities, an 88 Key, Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action II Keyboard and weighing only 24 lbs, Casio has done something special with the Privia Pro PX-5S! 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.
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. 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.
To easily access the sounds you need for your performance are Stage Settings. Each Stage Setting configures up to 4 keyboard zones, knob / slider assignments, phrases, arpeggios and effects settings. The PX-5S has 100 completely user configurable Stage Settings which are arranged in 10 banks of 10 each. When you’re within a bank, each Stage Setting is just one button press away allowing you to seamlessly switch configurations during a live show. Stage Settings can easily be edited, moved or replaced using the PX-5S’s Data Manager software.
Hex Layers were originally introduced in the award winning XW-P1 synthesizer. Due to the power of the AiR sound source, PX-5S takes them several steps further. A Hex Layer is a single complex tone that can be made up of six sample layers. These can be stacked (layered), split or velocity switched. Each of those six layers gets its own filter (LP, HP, BP) and filter envelope, its own AMP envelope and pitch envelope (all 7 stage envelopes). You can even have layers that are triggered on key-release. A Hex Layer tone gets its own insert effect but you can choose if a layer uses that insert or the amount that goes to the system effects (chorus, delay, reverb). Best of all, the PX-5S can use two Hex Layer tones simultaneously.
Audio Recording and Playback
Using a standard USB thumb drive, your performances or moments of inspiration can easily be captured as a standard . WAV file. Simply press the Audio Record button two times and the PX-5S is ready to record. Similarly, the PX-5S can play back . WAV files that are put on the USB drive. The second footswitch can be used to start or stop playback while you play along with your own pre-recorded backing tracks.
Casio continues the tradition of providing “class compliant” USB connectivity on Privia digital pianos. This allows Privia to be used with Mac or Windows computers without the need to download drivers. Class Compliant USB MIDI also allows Privia digital pianos to be used as a controller for the Apple iPad by using Apple’s Camera Connection Kit.

This is the best value in terms of feeling like you're playing on a grand or upright piano. The grand piano and electric pianos are fantastic. The new updated stage and sound setting from the forum are excellent. The strings and synth pads are also very good. The bass patches and brass patches are useable. I however prefer the bass, guitar and brass sounds on the moxf8 and fantom. It does have a phrase recorder to capture those moments of inspiration(good or bad). However IMHO, The sequencer, arpeggiator and drums are better on moxf8 (if that is why you are getting it).
Great for studio and live use. Some folks don't care for the white color. I actually like the geeky white color.
If you gig a lot, you will appreciate how easy it is lug around, use with batteries etc.
Go ahead and get it. You won't regret it.
A little background...
I have been goofing around with keyboards all my life, but joined a band a couple of years ago. This made me focus on playing and figuring out what equipment would work for gigging, on a tight budget. I owned a Yamaha DX-21 years ago and have a Yamaha DGX-620 at home, mainly for my daughter to play. I even hauled that beast to a few gigs until I could get my first Casio.
My first Casio was the PX-130, which was a great starter instrument. It had just a few sounds and no display, though. Tough for live performances. Then, I was able to sell that and upgrade to the Privia PX-350, which I still own. An excellent upgrade which I was happy with for over a year.
I had been looking for a way to afford the PX-5S, but had to wait for a deal. When I finally purchased it a few weeks ago, it was worth the wait! It has the same key bed as the PX-350, which includes weighted, textured keys--a nice piano feel. The feel is a bit heavier than my Yamaha DGX-620, but you can adjust key velocity if that bugs you.
You can read all the technical details, so what I'll say here is to give perspective. I love how light it is. At around 26 lbs., you can easily carry it using a Privia gig bag--which is only about $60--either using the handles, or a shoulder strap. I will be upgrading to a porter with wheels simply since I can then carry all the extra cables and such in one trip.
The number and variety of sounds, and the fact that you can download new ones that either Casio, or users post, is super fun. The piano sounds are great, but I really have more fun playing with the EPs, organs, and clavs. Note: There is a Wah-wah Clav that actually uses the sustain pedal for the wah effect! With the 6 sliders and 4 knobs, you can adjust many sound effects--reverb, attack, etc--on the fly.
There are 100 stage setups in 10 banks of 10. You can customize a stage setup for every song, if you wish, even editing the title of it. This is particularly useful for gigging, since with a couple key presses, you can switch instruments.
The interface is fine, but not super user friendly. Plan to invest time in learning the menus. For someone who loves technology, like me, it wasn't hard to get the basics down. There are hundreds of parameters, once you start digging, so you can customize just about anything.
My first gig with it is coming up in a week, but I've been playing it at home and love it so far!!
Particularly useful in making my decision and learning about the instrument were Piano Man Chuck's YouTube videos and the archived YouTube produced by Casio general manager, Mike Martin (what a talented guy!).
Anyway, it's clearly worth the $1000 but if you can get one in great condition used or refurbished, like I did, you will be even happier! A tip of the hat to Warehouse Deals, Inc. I purchased my PX-5S in "Very Good" condition through them at a significant discount, although the machine is practically brand new.
