  2. Yes, that can be done. See page EN-50 of the manual on loading USB media content to the keyboard memory.

  5. I have noticed there is only a headphone jack socket. My sustain pedal ( SP-3) fits but then the keyboard produces no sound. How can I get my sustain pedal to work? Thank you, Tilly
  6. Today
  7. Thanks for your reply Brad. It's a real shame that Casio makes these mistakes. I just bought a Korg Krome, with the idea of plugging it into the Audio IN of the PX-5S. As a result, a horribly dirty sound comes out of the Casio. Now, have I to spend extra money to buy a mixer? Or did I take the Casio to repair? My Casio still has two years warranty. Will Casio accept this problem as a warranty case? I'm very frustrated with this PX-5S fault. Very disspointed after paying 899 euro for an useless Audio IN port!
  8. i know it probly doesnt belong here but i wasnt gettin a response in the other thread. i have an old CTK-511 (from i think 1998 could be wrong) on it are 100 rhythms and when i dont add the preset accompaniment they are just drum loops. my question is does anyone know if the drum loops are in public domain or if i use them as a drum track in music i write (addin my own guitar/bass) will i have to pay Casio royalties or some form of licensing fee? any info would be immensely helpful
  9. I'm not sure about the RZ-1, though the FZ-1 (plus 10M and 20M) are known for their "crunchiness". In fact, many find that it adds a unique character to the samples. Now, I've no idea if it's the filter (analogue) that causes this, or if it's the way the FZ processes its samples. It's supposedly 16 bit (and advertised as such), though some speculate that it samples at 12 bit. Or as you said earlier, perhaps it's the frequency range that does it, though I do also know that the FZ has selectable variable rates for sampling. When my FZ-20M finally arrives here from the UK (it's currently with the shipping company along with all my belongings) I will be eager to test it out!
  10. Thanks Brad. If recorded music file is saved to USB drive as .CSR and later the recorder memory is cleared or overwritten, is there a way to reload a .CSR file into recorder memory? I think this can be done for the other models but not AP-700 and the GPs. I am trying to find a way to convert .CSR into .MID. My son saved his recording to USB using .CSR format but I can't play that on computer. If I can reload the .CSR file into recorder memory, then I can save it back to USB as .MID.
  11. The USB flash drive port performs file management on those models. There is no hidden media modes.
  12. I have the Celviano AP-700, not a grand hybrid, but it is very similar to the GP series. In the earlier Casio digital piano models, there is USB device mode which makes the folders and files inside the piano visible to the computer connected through USB cable. I don't see that in AP-700 and the GP series user manual. My question: is there a hidden / undocumented way to enable USB device mode for AP-700 and the GP series digital pianos?
  13. Yesterday
  14. Excessive noise is not normal. If that is happening, something needs repair. As far as the noise gate, I highly doubt the PX-5S will ever see another firmware update.
  15. Oh I see this gives me new insight. I've did a work around with arpeggio but kept sampling the tone also as another substitute option. But now I know about Offset and Absolute editable parameters. There are elements in the tone voices I like very much thank you I'll experiment it out on the PX5S.
  16. I do not have the MZ-X500. You can demonstrate samples? I am looking for natural (similar) sound pipes 8,16,4 (characteristic sound).
  17. H everyone, I've bought it about 3 weeks ago and both headphone outputs were working fine. I've used the outputs only 3 or 4 times. (I prefer playing w/o headphones) Suddenly the left channel got muted almost to 0. I can hear it if I rise the volume up to the maximum but it's not in sync with the right channel. The right channel is extremely loud when the left channel is very quite. I have reset all the settings, upgraded the firmware to the latest one 1.10. I have checked the pan settings - all normal. Same applies to the audio records when played in headphones. Although both left and right line outputs and all built-in speakers work fine. Also my headset is also OK. So I'm going to return it... but might be there's a solution for this. thank you P.S. there are other issues I have noticed especially when you import/export anything (tones, midi, etc.) In most cases after export/import all buttons including the touchscreen stop responding, although the keyboard stays playable. I had to turn off/on to get them back to normal state.
  18. I find the 'Organ Pipe Flute' Tone which has a nominal 8' pitch very versatile and enables me to tweak, create and save other sounds derived from this single Tone in 4' , 2' and 16' pitch with individual characteristics. When used in selective combinations this enables me to simulate real pipe organ flutes which, is the basis of all church and classical pipe organ sound). Also I can play 16' tone on my Midi organ Pedalboard (Nord 27Keys) with the MZ-X500 which gives a very pleasing and satisfactory sound when played in church for all types of classical organ music and accompanying hymns. Further 'reed tones' can also be added to enhance the sound all the way up to full organ sound which is less difficult to simulate which most keyboard manufacturers provide as dedicated tones, and other Forum users have produced stunning and very usable full organ tones with Hex Layering. (See also tones created by Rick Sterling such as his Theatre Organ download) -Which makes the MZ-X500 such a very practicable keyboard for all genres of music.
  19. YEP!!!! That was the problem alright. The wheel was set to "Off". Thank you so much Choppin and BradMz. It was driving me crazy not to be able to modulate a synth vi with the mod wheel and now all is good - even better if the Packers can beat the Cowboys today. Thank you, paul

  21. Hello, Seeking a sound (samples), chapel and church organ with MZ-X500. I can not find on the internet. Maybe someone will record a short demo? I will be grateful. Please post a link. I like the sounds of chapel and church organ, as for me it is a criterion for the choice of instrument. I was looking for MZ-X500 in my area. I've been in several stores. I found only PX-5S. Very good piano sound. Unfortunately, the church organ poor. Greetings from Poland, Marecki
  22. Hi Winip, The control section Scott was mentioning in the other thread if you go to page E-31 of the users guide tutorial manual, you'll find the stage settings section. Pages E-32 and E-35 talk about the modulation wheel specifically. There shouldn't be any midi filtering going on... however, do you have any program where you can view what is transmitted hen you use the mod wheel? In windows, a nice program for that is MIDI-Ox If you can actually see that a changing value is being transmitted when you use the wheel, you'll know if the stopping point is in Logic Pro

  25. OK, sorry about that - don't want to hijack the post for sure.
  26. That's true. You could set the 4 zones so that they don't sound and just switch between stage settings with a single button. The advantage is you could setup one stage setting with sound, and mirror the exact same one without sound in case you wanted to hear the stage setting. The advantage of the local off is, you could use any one the stage settings and keyboard configurations to change the settings of your daw without having to preprogram the sound being off for that particular stage setting. Keep in mind, Each stage setting can have it's own grouping of what midi channels are controlled, what the patch settings are, what ccs the pedals are set to, etc. Once the local off is set, it remains set until you turn it back on.
  27. Thanks, Choppin. Yes I saw about the local off. It looks like creating a stage setting with all four zones turned off would be the most elegant and easily accessible option.
