Casio Updates Privia Digital Pianos With Touch Screens & More


At the 2015 Summer NAMM Show, Casio introduced two new models in its Privia digital piano line – the Privia PX-360M and PX-560M.

The Privia PX-360M and PX-560M both feature:

  • A 5.3” Color Touch Interface.
  • Casio’s AiR Sound Source
  • An 88 note Tri-sensor Scaled Hammer Action keyboard
  • Compact design for portability

The Casio Privia PX-360M

The PX-360M, above, features 550 built-in tones and includes 200 rhythms with full accompaniment. Using the Color Touch Interface, you can layer tones and split the keyboard.

These combinations, along with a rhythm selection, can be stored and recalled as a Registration for performances.

This ensemble digital piano features ¼” audio outputs and inputs, USB and standard MIDI ports, USB drive audio recording and playback and can be used with the optional CS-67 stand and SP-33 three pedal board.


The Casio Privia PRO PX-560M

For the more musician that needs more, the PX-560M, above, features 256-note polyphony, 600 preset tones, 400 user tones and 20 programmable insert effects.

The PX-560M also offers Casio Hex-Layers synthesis, providing extensive sonic possibilities. The PX-560M also offers additional controller features, with pitch and modulation wheels, three knobs for real-time control, footswitch and an expression pedal input.

Casio’s new Privia PX-360M (MSRP: $1199.99) and PX-560M (MSRP: $1599.99) will be available later this summer at select music dealers nationwide. See the Casio site for more info.

  1. Casio’s Privia line continues to evolve and provide good value for the money. Can’t wait to try the PX-560m… they even included a music stand with it! (the lack of a music stand was a sore point with the PX-5s)

  2. Agree with the above comments I have the PX5-S and though it has some major plus points (great sounding piano and elec pianos/excellent weighted keys/under 12kgs so easy to carry) there were some design flaws:

    Power button right above the main volume making it easy to power off by mistake – Which the PX560 has fixed
    Tiny screen – Which the PX560 has fixed
    Lack of any real editing without linking it up to a computer – Which the PX560 has fixed
    No expression input – Which the PX560 has fixed

    They have obviously listened to the concerns of users and acted upon them.

    The PX560 doesn’t seem to be a replacement to the PX5S but seems to contain the “best of” feature along side a few other useful ones. Look forward to trying it out.

  3. They look excellent and good value for money too, but why do they have FULL size keys and not “mini keys” just like those on Yamaha Reface – the musicians choice No 1… LoL…

  4. They are getting better and better. Can’t wait for their next synth, (XW-P2 ?). In the end they will rule the synth market just because they use full sized keys 😀
