Edit

 

The Casio CTK-496 is a portable keyboard built for casual use. This keyboard is the right choice for kids or an extra in the rec room, but the lack of a 76 key layout and any MIDI functionality makes it inappropriate for the professional. It features 61 keys which are scaled to full size, and has a number of tones, rhythms and pre-programed songs. Auto accompaniment will start a background rhythm in response to a played chord. Two speakers are built in, and a microphone input with an independent volume control enables a vocal accompaniment.
