  2. Solo Cello -Viola -Violin Sound

    Brad, Thanks for the lightning-fast response on this 2.5 year old topic! Glad the instrument has a way to do it. I'll eventually get around to giving it a try. I've got an old Ensoniq kbd with aftertouch - that might be a good way to "lean into" an extra parameter or two. Other random thoughts: has anyone here tried a breath controller for a cello parameter (either the original from DX-7 days or the new USB variety)? I've also wondered whether a "PC gamer" multi-axis joystick would make a good multi-controller for instruments (like cello) that could be played with one hand. (And whether it would be easier to just learn cello than learn to "play" a complicated joystick... :)) Installed the alternate-map ALL file today; totally glitch-free. The forum and its members are top-notch (except I have had no luck trying the Search box :))
  3. Tengo muchas dudas con este piano y no hay tutoriales en español :C
    Me lo compre el año pasado y nose todavia como Crear frases porque se me van de tiempo ni tampoco crear tonos o stages con Lfo

  4. Updating the XW Firmware

    There IS a change: The version number goes up. Seriously though, the changes are described on the update page. Where it says "Improved certain operation" you an assume they fixed a few bugs that you may or may not have encountered.

  6. PX-5S FAQ

    Hi. Can it possible to charge patch from PX 560 to PX 5s ??? Is it possible PX 5s does'nt read???
  7. Members 0 6 posts Report post Posted 3 hours ago Hello to all. I have a Privia PX 5s at home recently. I also bought a Yamaha expander. exactly a Motif ES. I connected the two parts by midi and started to edit the first performance on the expander with 4 sounds split directly on the Yamaha expander. The privia initially reads them ... but then when I go to change the patch on the privia ... everything seems crazy. I play only a part of the performance, only the treble first .. then if I change again patches on the privia ... sometimes everything disappears. Then change the patch ... and it works again. I tried to set all MIDI information correctly ... but the problem exists. The strange thing is that if I connect the expander via midi to a YAMAHA masterkeyboard ... this does not happen. If anyone could help me understand, I would be grateful. I need to prepare my concert setup as soon as possible. Thank you very much. I am Andrea Torino Italy
  8. Privia px 5s e Breath Controller

    Thanks Jokyman for your willingness to help me. I was able to understand something more in these days of research. First of all I should buy a universal MIDI Breath controller. This is because I play on the Privia ... but in fact, at that moment it is the Motif expander that is connected via midi to the Privia, to play. So a breath control that has a midi attack to connect to the Motif ... which is connected midi to the privia ... keyboard that acts as a master controller then. The breath control midi..non can not connect directly to the Privia ... because to connect it directly, I should play its internal sounds. Considering that the sounds are of a Motif rack expander, connected to the Privia ... I have to connect the Breath control to the Motif in the midi jack of the same. If I played the Privia patches and wanted a combined midi breath controller, then I would have to connect it directly to the Privia. Thank you so much. See you next time. Andrew
  9. Thank you Brad for confirming my fears. I have to admit that I feel cheated by Casio. What's the point of calling the recorder a MIDI recorder if it won't transmit MIDI notes to other instruments? I believe it is something that could be easily fixed by means of a software update, but I won't be holding my breath. I bought the CGP 700 primarily because of its keys and integrated sound system...they suit my piano playing style perfectly. I also like the sound of the grand piano and many other factory sounds very much. But not being able to use its onboard sequencer to play external sounds is a egregious oversight, IMO. My CASIO CZ-5000 could do that on the fly more than 30 years ago, for crying out loud! I guess I will have to cave and get a laptop with a DAW in order to be able to use the cgp700 as a master controller, but I am already dreading the latency and other issues that are inherent to using a computer. But to finish on a positive note, The CGP700 still makes for a terrific stand alone digital piano - with nothing coming even close to it in its price range.
  10. Bought one today....

    👍 Good going Pete. I use my Kronos 2 with the MX500. Works great! Have you seen the new analogue 16 channel keyboard from Korg?
  11. Solo Cello -Viola -Violin Sound

    There are two dsp effects for either amp lfo or filter lfo (tremolo and lfo wah). Lfo amp can be substituted with tremolo dsp, the rate of which can be adjusted with a slider in real time. Setup a slider with two targets, one for dsp lfo rate and one for vib rate. That gives you rate control of both amp and pitch with one slider and they can stay in sync. Depth can be controlled with another slider.
  12. Solo Cello -Viola -Violin Sound

    Hi. Just got a PX-5S. Admittedly I have zero sound design experience. Two questions about the cello LFO situation discussed above: 1) Could the arpeggiator be used to output control messages, a la Mike Martin's stereo pan of (Herbie's) e-piano? (But if arpeggio tempo can't be varied by a slider or knob, maybe this idea doesn't help ; can arpeggio tempo be controlled by a slider or knob?) 2) With an external computer running custom software (maybe a MainStage MIDI Script), could a continuous series of MIDI pitch bend and expression changes be applied to the cello patch, to simulate simultaneous LFO rate changes for both pitch and amp? I'm asking about the Casio part of the equation - would such a controller stream swamp the PX, or would the synth happily respond, no sweat? Thanks to all the contributors here!

  14. Bought one today....

    Thanks Steve, Rick & Ronald Having a ball with this MZ and it's only 2 days old!! Can't believe how brilliantly it MIDI's up with my PA4X - using the PA4X to give me 76 keys to play the MZ too. And yes, whilst my PA4X is also an arranger (which I love!!), I refuse to "compare" them as the MZ is a very different and brilliant keyboard - doing many things the Korg doesn't For me, these two arrangers are a perfect match in that there is very little overlap. Got to get into the Pads and some recording on it now but maybe some sleep first...... This forum is superb - the help and info is excellent - hope I can return some help sometime soon too. Cheers Pete
  15. Hi Milo. The MIDI recorder in touchscreen models does not transmit out via MIDI. (Not even on the mighty MZ-X500). Your best bet is a computer and sequencer software for controlling mutliple devices with one sequence. The chart from the manual, below, shows the items (listed under port A) that will transmit midi data out.
  16. It has begun a sneak reveal showed a glimpse at insta. Not knowing anything I had to wipe the drool off .
  17. Updating the XW Firmware

    Just want to know that there is any kind of change after updating.
  18. Boards with video out for singalongs?

    Can these Top Range keyboards handle inputting lyrics into your own compositions, score or chords? That sounds like a handy skill to master, am not quite ready for a keyboard upgrade right now, though UPDATE: Just read that Band-in-a-box program does the lyrics input thing.
  19. Thanks and Goodbye! Of Topic

    Hi Silvano, all the best with your music projects. Hope to you see you posting here again after a short break, maybe?
  20. Thanks and Goodbye! Of Topic

    SILVANO - I know, from my own experience, how sad you'll feel about "leaving" the Group, even if you don't quite feel that way now. As I said, VERY recently, in the "Sampler" thread: " SILVANO OBVIOUSLY has something significant to say about what he thinks are the failings of the Sampler".... It's a shame that, hopefully for just a short time, you don't feel able to remain as contributor to the Forum, and continue with your best efforts to explain the way the X500 contributes to Brazilian music. Take it easy Chris
  21. Boards with video out for singalongs?

    Also Yamaha top end PSR's, Tyros, and Genos.
  22. Boards with video out for singalongs?

    Korg PA700 or PA1000 have video out, lyrics and score output.
  23. A bit strange to ask this on this forum, but seeing as many of you own multiple keyboards I was wondering if you’d share your product knowledge and practical experience with me. Ive been pretty happy with the X500, but if I did upgrade I’d want a board that: : Displays lyrics, at least thru the video out, and hopefully also on the keyboard display. I want to have singalongs (not necessarily just karaoke), so having words for everyone to read simplifies everything. Ive printed out lyric sheets before and that’s not a very practical solution : Displays sheet music: would probably be easier to just use an ipad with a foot controlled pedal to change pages, but i thought I’d at least put it out there. Have any of you done the video out thing for lyrics? Seems like an elegant solution, esp. if i can also see the lyrics on the keyboard display. Also, are lyrics something I’d be able to easily input for a given song? Thanks, Randy
  24. My CTK-2400 wont work with my computer

    Posted in error - removed.
  25. Hello fellow forum members. I am not a newbie, rather an old fart getting back into it after a 2-decade long hiatus. Lots of tech advancements to catch up with. So here's the issue: I would like the cgp700 to be my master keyboard without using a laptop or DAW. I understand I need a USB MIDI host box such as Kenton's. Now, once that connection is taken care of and I have the cgp700 triggering my Roland D-05 and my Mininova, how on Earth do I record tracks on CASIO's MIDI recorder so it plays external sounds on different MIDI channels? Could it be that the MIDI recorder is meant to play only internal sounds or am I missing something really obvious? I tried the manual, but I don't see where I can assign midi out channels to individual tracks. Please, please help. Milo
  26. My CTK-2400 wont work with my computer

    The USB connection is for MIDI, not audio. You'll need software that can recognize and record a MIDI controller.
