The CA501 offers a built-in metronome as an aid for the serious piano student. With ten time signatures, the metronome is a handy tool to learn to keep a steady rhythm. In addition, there are 100 drum beats inside the metronome for even more versatility.
The CA501 has a selection of reverb settings to simulate the reverberation in a small room or a cathedral-and several settings in between. A large variety of effects are also available at the touch of a finger. Effects such as a rotary speaker, phaser, delays, tremolos and much more can be added to any voice.
Another valuable feature of the CA501 is the Registration Memory. The player can store up to 16 of their favorite settings on the piano, so whenever a particularly interesting combination of sounds and effects is discovered, one can save that setting for future use.
The CA501 can transpose into any key. The Tone Control offers additional settings to please any ear and any style. And the Auto Off feature saves energy by automatically shutting off power after a given time of inactivity.
