Casio continues the tradition or providing "class compliant" USB connectivity on our Lighted Keyboard line. This allows Casio Lighted Keyboards to be used with Mac or Windows computers without the need for downloading drivers. Class Compliant USB MIDI also allows Lighted Keyboard digital pianos to also be used as a controller the Apple iPad simply with the use of Apple's Camera Connection Kit.
Casio’s combination of the exclusive Step Up Lesson system and lighted piano-style keys make learning to play the piano entertaining and fun. Maybe that’s why Casio sells more lighted key keyboards than anyone else.
Casio’s LK-280 has a built-in library of 152 songs, more than most others in its class. Whether you are using the songs to learn with the Step Up Lesson system, or playing along with a song for fun, you will find greater choices to meet your needs. Compare the number of songs to other manufacturers and you will see Casio has the advantage.
The LK-280 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.
The LK-280 has 180 preset rhythms built into the keyboard. Additional rhythms expand your music composition, creativity and fun.
Casio’s portable keyboards can run on batteries or an AC adapter. Unlike other companies, Casio includes an AC adapter with all portable keyboards.
