    MZ X500 Firmware wish list

    I was willing to create a tread with this very same intent. I'm glad I'm not alone and there's one already!!! An improvement suggested is to move the control area of the assignable knobs (K1 & K2) to the right, so that they lay above them on the screen. By this simple move, the touch control on screen doubles as LABELs identifying the assigned function. This change requires a minimum effort in the screen design, simply moving the Phrase control to the far left (please check attached picture). Currently, driven by the screen, I often actuate the Value willing to reach K1 (or reach K1 willing K2). This small change would help, specially when paying in the dark....

    OK. I understand. You are correct. There will be no "updates" to the X500 to turn it into a Korg Kronos. ;-) p.s. I kept my Korg Kronos 2 when i got my X500. Love them both!

    Serendipitous Sequencer Synergy

    Both the XW-P1 and XW-G1 synthesizers provide three independent and quite different types of sequencer: the step sequencer, the phrase sequencer and the arpeggiator. You might not recognize the arpeggiator as a sequencer but that is what it is, the only difference being that the notes it sequences are based on the keys that you hold down (or latch). All three of these sequencers are typically used more-or-less independently. For example, play a backing rhythm using the step sequencer while using the argeggiator in a zone to play a note sequence with one tone while periodically triggering a phrase in another zone with another tone. However, the XW synths contain a number of features that can tie two or even all three of the sequencers together into a seamless, synchronized whole that is more than the sum of its parts (the definition of "synergy"). It may seem serendipitous (by chance) to us but I have a hard time believing that the XW’s designers who added these features didn't know exactly what they were doing. The first feature is called Sync. You’ll find it described, somewhat confusingly, on page E-40 in the XW-P1’s User Guide and page E-41 in the XW-G1’s User Guide. When it is turned on it starts the step sequencer when an arpeggio starts playing, which of course happens as soon as you press one or more keys in an area (note range) of the keyboard in which the arpeggiator is enabled. If you are playing in Performance mode that range is determined by the Performance parameters ArpKeyRgLo (Arpeggio Key Range Low) and ArpKeyRgHi (Arpeggio Key Range High). The Sync feature can also stop the sequence automatically when you release the keys (or release the "hold" condition if you used that to keep the arpeggio going without needing to keep pressing keys); the "S/S" setting enables that. The other feature doesn’t have a name. It is the ability to start and stop a specified phrase from the fourth control track (Ctl4) of the step sequencer. You’ll find the parameters for that feature described on page E-56 in the XW-P1’s User Guide and page E-57 in the XW-G1’s User Guide. I have previously described here in this forum one way to use that feature, allowing phrases to be selected using the step sequencer’s pattern buttons. But it can also be used merely to synchronize a phrase to the step sequencer. Note that a phrase initiated from the step sequencer is actually independent of a phrase initiated from the phrase sequencer, the latter done using the PLAY/STOP button in the PHRASE SEQ area of the front panel. Hence the XW-P1 can be playing two independent phrases at any given moment. The XW-G1 can actually play up to four phrases indpendently, since two additional phrases can be initiated from the multi-function area of the keyboard. (It is a great pity that the multi-function feature did not make it into the P1. There is no reason for its omission other than artificial feature separation between the models.) If you count the G1's independent sample looper as another phrase (because it can easily record phrases played by the G1 itself) then five phrases can be going on at the same time. With all that going on plus the step sequencer who needs to actually play the keyboard?? There is yet another interaction between sequencers, this one between the primary phrase sequencer and the arpeggiator. If a phrase is started by hitting PLAY/STOP in the PHRASE SEQ area of the panel while the arpeggiator is also active, the arpeggiator behaves as if the notes played by the phrase sequencer are actually being pressed on the keyboard. Those that are in the range over which the arpeggio is enabled then supply the arpeggiator with its source notes. Furthermore, if KEY PLAY is enabled then pressing a single key in an area enabled for both the phrase sequencer and the arpeggio will immediately transpose the phrase and hence transpose the source notes for the arpeggio. This is powerful stuff. (Note that if you DON'T want such behavior you need to enable the phrase sequencer and the arpeggiator in different zones or in different key ranges within the same zone.) So, to recap: The step sequencer can be started automatically, and optionally also stopped, when we play an arpeggio. A phrase can be started when the step sequencer starts playing or indeed at any time during a pattern, depending on which step(s) in the pattern the start command appears. If the step sequencer is started by the arpeggiator and a phrase is started by the step sequencer, then all three can start at the same time. Finally, if a phrase is started from the PLAY/STOP button on the panel then that phrase can be used to automatically change the notes played by the arpeggiator. What can we do with such synchronization? Here are a couple of ideas: (1) The control tracks of a step-sequencer pattern can rhythmically modify parameters like volume, filter cutoff, pan position or even tempo while an arpeggio is playing using the four control (Ctl) tracks. For example, if we arrange an arpeggio to play an upward sequence of four sixteenth notes from a fingered four-note chord we could also program a step-sequencer pattern to increase volume and raise the filter cutoff with each cycle of the arpeggiator. This could go on for eight cycles, then the cutoff and volume could be progressively lowered back down to their original settings on the next eight cycles, after which the pattern repeats. The resulting “composite” sequence is sixty-four notes long and it is chord-interactive (because of course the arpeggio is chord-interactive). The only other way to accomplish such a long sequence on the XW-P1 would be to chain four 16-note patterns together but the result would not be chord interactive (but could still be transposed). (2) A user arpeggio is set up that does nothing (!) The arpeggio's Sync option is set to "S/S." This “null” arpeggio is enabled in a zone, which consequently becomes silent (because the null arpeggio has no notes). However, its noble sacrifice allows the step sequencer to be started and stopped by pressing a single "trigger" key without an accompanying arpeggio. For our trigger key we choose C3 immediately above the untransposed first octave of the keyboard. We use the step sequencer to call a phrase using part 8 set to an acoustic-guitar tone (we could choose part 1 or any one of parts 8 to 16). The phrase implements an acoustic-guitar strum or perhaps a complete rhythmic strumming pattern that we sourced from the internet or created ourselves in a PC-based MIDI sequencer. We enable KEY SHIFT on the panel. We now use our left hand to press the trigger key, producing our strum or strumming pattern in the original key. Simultaneously pressing the trigger key and another key in the octave below it with our left hand produces a transposed strum or strumming pattern. We thus produce a rhythm-guitar accompaniment with our left hand while our right hand is playing a melody in another zone using another tone. Need different kinds of strummed chords? Then create phrases for them, call each up using a separate pattern and then select them during live play using the pattern buttons, as described here. Think of this as "Motif Lite." PS. I have added a gratuitous shot of Amy Poehler and Bradley Cooper comping on a keyboard from the film "Wet Hot American Summer." It has nothing to do with the post but it's funny and some people just won't read long articles without a picture or two attached.

    MZ X500 Firmware wish list

    Hello there, I did update MZ's fw to current version 1.50 and I"m extremely happy to share, The above is already done! Kindly check the control labels right over K1 and K2 knobs at the new version screen below. Thank you Casio ! That was a learning to me: before dreaming for a suggested improvement, I should be optimistic, less cautious and update to the latest firmware version. I might be already there... Cheers !!!

    CDP230R

    Hey there and welcome to the Casio forums. The CDP-230 is not available in the North American market, which is what this forum *primarily* serves. Of course, we welcome everyone from all over the world and help everyone the best we can, but we put the most popular models in their own forums and the rest come here to the General forums. To your question: You are having a USB ground loop issue and it's a very common issue. To solve it, there are various USB hum eliminators available, or you can try plugging your devices into outlets on different circuits. Had a guy run a 50' extension cord to another room to get on a different circuit, but it worked. Let us know how it works out. Always like to add success stories and methods to the bag o' tricks!

    Any PX-5s successor yet in 2018?

    People want/ need a better keyboard for their purposes, I understand. But keyboard isn't like a mobile phone or something, which you want to upgrade it every year. I am emotional when it comes to my instruments.

    Just that there won't be coming any audio-interface to whatever Casio keyboard soon nor audio recording functions like overdub to existing wav records (not sampling). Its been a topic since the XW arrived and later on with the PX's and with the revealing of the MZ it wasn't their neither. And with the memory available to PX and MZ keyboard chances are very slim for the next keyboard. But and I don't mean a big one all keyboards have stereo outputs if you're lucky with an mixer with a built in audio-interface or a separate audio-interface or a four track recorder that also work just as well. but the point was no audio-interface or expanded audio recording function to the existing wav recorder.

    Interesting thread, I don't want to be a buzz kill but ask silly questions and you'll get silly answers . All the wiring to a DAW doesn't necessarily guarantee good music unless the person is a versed or creative musician. One always going to find something to add which lead to GAS and no music.

    Wrong tone when turning on the piano

    That is indeed the grand piano tone, but with the vibrato effect applied. Your modulation wheel needs to be in the full down position, not centered like the pitch bender wheel. That is the correct "home" position for modulation wheels. That will remove the vibrato effect.

    Nick What you describe as a DAW/Workstation performance relationship is known as "close (or tight) integration". The most recent Roland/Yamaha hardware devices that support this are: the Roland Fantom series (now discontinued) the current Roland FA Series the Yamaha Motif Series (now discontinued) the current Yamaha MOXF Series the current Yamaha Montage While any of the above devices allow you to pre-arrange backing tracks with preset drum and arppegio patterns that can be set to follow left-hand chord play, they are not real-time arrangers, in the fullest sense, with fully orchestrated auto-accompaniment. Casio does not currently offer anything that fits into the close-integration field, but perhaps future releases in the XW, PX, and MZ-X lines will be a step in that direction. In recent years, Roland has drawn back from the full-featured high-end professional arranger-workstation market, and Yamaha's only offerings that would come anywhere near to close-DAW integration capabilities are the recently discontinued Tyros-5 and the recently released Genos, but both of these devices run in the $5000 - $6000 USD range, and as "arrangers", their DAW integration is still limited, compared to that of the Fantom, FA, Motif, MOXF devices. I am sorry I can not discuss the Korg lines, but I lack experience with their lines. I would say the the PA-4X and the recently released PA-1000 might bear looking at, but I assume you would still have the same problem. As Alen has already stated, there still exists a strong dichotomy between how manufacturers see the professional non-arranger (ROMpler) music production market and the home/amateur/professional music entertainment market. Over on the PSR-Tutorial Forum there are currently several very heated discussions in progress of the recently released Genos (arranger) workstation and its continued lack of some of the finer features of the top-end non-arranger models that make them the successful music production tools that they are, with close DAW integration being one of those features. It seems that recently included features are more of a DJ-groovebox nature than of a true studio music production nature. At this point, I am afraid that exactly what you are looking for still does not quite exist, so I think that you are going to find that some serious compromises are going to be necessary. I wish you all the luck in making the correct ones.

    At present, I would suggest the MZ-X500 comes closest to your requirements. It actually covers every one of your requirements above. However, if you are primarily using DAW based multi track recording software, along with large amounts of VST's, you'd probably be better off getting a dedicated MIDI controller keyboard. These have more controllers and are easier to map to DAW software. Plus one would be cheaper than any workstation. However, if you must have a unit that can operate as a standalone as well as part of a DAW, then the MZ-X is the best recommendation.
  20. 1 point
    You need a workstation (yes MZ is workstation as well but more work needs to be done on software) so cheapest is Korg Krome about 1000£ then if you want better Korg Kronos at 2700£ and finally Yamaha Montage with Cubase AI included and plenty of audio tracks only 2500£.

    The onboard audio recorder is not a multitrack recorder. It simply records the mixdown output of the keyboard to the usb thumb drive as a stereo wave file. It's best used to capture a performance, or playback MP3 and WAV files.

    Hi Casiokid, press K1 (K2) field and in the new window in Target field 1 select Upper 2 on/off and again in Target field 2 select Upper 2 on/off. This way you can switch Upper 2 On by turning that knob to right and Off by turning it left.

    The MZX series are standalone workstations. They are not really intended to be a full featured midi controller. They can send note data and send controller data from the assignable controllers ( 2 knobs, mod wheel, pedals 1 and 2). Sliders are not assignable and not really useful for midi control.
  24. 1 point
    No, the MZX series cannot create or load any type of DAW project files. If you want the project in a DAW, it is best to use the DAW software itself for all audio and sequencing. You can, of course, always export MZ sequencer data as a standard midi file (SMF). That will open as a 16 track sequence like any midi file. Casio's proprietary 17th system track cannot be exported as SMF. Also note, it is not possible to record two audio lines on the MZX. I'm not sure what you meant by that. The MZX series can record audio to usb thumb drive as a stereo wav file. It also has a separate midi recorder. The midi recorder cannot record audio. The two recorders operate independently and they cannot sync to one another.

    sad

    I read the responses in context and thought that some of them were more in the context of a personal attack and felt the need to respond because I had the same issue twice. In my world, the "no media" problem is a product defect plain and simple. Apparently, the firmware update 1.13 may have corrected the problem although we wouldn't know it by reading Casio's reasoning for the firmware update. Frankly, most of my musician friends mock me for my love of Casio boards and I defend the boards regularly. I leave my pricy Kurzweil Forte home and would rather play with the PX-5S. You are correct, Mike was dumbfounded that my power supply failed and indicated that I was a first. That didn't make me feel any better when I had to run around and get two sets of multiple batteries at a store at the last minute while my bandmates were trying to figure out why my rig wasn't working at an outdoor gig when the band was supposed to start. (If anyone thinks you can play a 4 plus hour gig on batteries on one set of batteries, I will tell you from first hand experience that you cannot). I will never know how or why the "no media" problem occurred or who or what caused it although I can assure you that people within Casio had to be embarrassed and troubled by what occurred. It should never have happened. To this day, I am inclined to bring a second board to the gig just in case. In a professional product sold to professional musicians, that shouldn't be the case. When a gig starts, neither the audience nor the band leader want to hear that your rig doesn't want to work and you don't know why. Enough said.

    Expression pedal FCV100

    Yes, in an ideal world any pedal would work with any keyboard. Unfortunately, we don't live in that world. Personally, I prefer the Moog EP-3 because it has a nice heft to it, the price was right and it says "Moog" on it. It shouldn't matter who makes it but I always wanted to own a Moog product. This technically qualifies (although surely it is actually made in China, unlike Moog synths). Alas, it is not a Moog synth. (If anyone wants to donate their Minimoog I'll take it off their hands. ) However, the EP-3 is NOT on Casio's list of pedals, despite it working just fine when set up properly. And physically it is higher than most other expression pedals, which may not be to your liking. The Roland EV-5 works well and sits a lot lower. But I found it a little flimsy feeling compared to the EP-3 and it is a lot more expensive (unless you find it on sale). People here have had good results with the M-Audio EX-P but I have never tried it. Now, before you rush out and buy a replacement I have read that it is possible to modify the FCV100 to make it compatible with Roland keyboards (and hence also the PX-560). It might be as simple as rewiring the output connector to swap the wires going to ring and tip. Or make/modify an adapter cable to go between the pedal and the 560 that does the swapping. It also sounds like the pot has a different trim than the one in the EV-5 (logarithmic vs. linear) so the end result won't be the same. But it may work well enough. You say you can't return it anyway so it may be worth a try if you are at all handy with a soldering iron (me and soldering irons go way back). I own two Behringer products: the FCB1010 and the BCR-2000. The former has _two_ footpedals and they transmit MIDI, so that's another option (but much more expensive and physically much larger). Both products work well and they seem well made. I have nothing against Behringer products but even if the FCV100 worked with the PX-560 out of the gate I would not have bought it based on online reviews. But in your case it's a bird in the hand.

    Expression pedal FCV100

    It's hardly Casio's fault that the FCV100 and FC7 don't work. They won't work with a Roland keyboard either (go ahead and try). Is that Roland's fault too? The problem is, and this has been stated here before (so if you had bothered to search the forum on the subject of pedals before you bought you would have known), there is no actual standardization for pedals, just defacto standards because of the popularity of certain keyboard manufacturers. Yamaha is very popular. Roland is very popular. Curse them for not using the same circuit design but now curse all TV manufacturers for using their own remote-control codes and protocols, too. It looks like you didn't read your User's Guide, either. You know, that paper thing that came with your keyboard (or which you can download from Casio's website; search the forum for the link or Google it). Page EN-10 lists some compatible expression pedals. You can also add Moog's EP-3 to the list; that's the one I use. You can find a description of how to set the controls on it to make it work right here on this specific forum. I can also confirm that the Roland EV-5 works because I had one for a short time (I returned it in favor of the EP-3). People here say the M-Audio EX-P works too, which it should because electrically it's a clone of the EV-5. If it seems I'm being critical of your last reply here, well, I am. Sorry. You bought something that doesn't work and you can't return without even minimal research on the matter and now blame Casio for it. Man up, dude.

    Expression pedal FCV100

    I am not certain but the FCV100 likely isn't compatible with the 560. Online reviews I have read mention it being used in place of a Yamaha FC7. It looks like Behringer may have copied elements of the FC7 (down to the shape and size) and then added the volume circuitry (which isn't present on the FC7). IIRC Mike specifically states in the video above that the FC7 is not compatible. (That has been stated elsewhere too.) PS. The volume control part of the FCV100, which modifies the volumes of up to two audio signals you pass through it, should work with almost any audio source, even the direct output from a guitar (the inputs have a relatively high impedance of 300Kohms). It's only the CV output that won't work with the PX-560.

    The velocity sensitive pads could take advantage of being used like the buttons on remote controls. The longer you press a pad, the greater it adjusts parameters/volumes accordingly. This would be a good solution to include to address issues of changing sample volumes.

    Sound is very unpleasant

    Yes, this is a problem not only with the 560 but with most DPs in this segment that have built in speakers. I have my 560 against a wall and that improves the sound significantly - but it still sounds bad. Try also adjusting the master equalizer. But it will sound much better through quality headphones. If you plan using the 560 frequently without headphones I would suggest to connect it through a pair of external monitors/speakers.

    Need help with my Casio Privia

    If you use headphones with an 1/8 inch (3.5mm) to 1/4 inch stereo adapter, make sure the adapter has not been left in one of the PHONES jacks. An adapter left in either one of the PHONES jacks will cut off the speakers. If that is not the problem, plug in a set of headhones and check for sound from them. If you get sound through the headphones, but not through the speakers, insert the headphones into each of the PHONES jacks several times, in case the speakers/phones switch in either of the jacks is stuck. If this does not resolve the problem, see Page E-24 of the manual to ensure that the Back-up feature is turned off, then power the PX-150 OFF/ON. When the PX-150 is powered ON with the Back-up feature off, all settings are reset to their initial factory values. If this does not resolve the problem, the PX-150 will most likely need to go to a service center for repair. There is no "MUTE" feature on the PX-150, other than just turning the main volume knob all the way down - BTW - have you checked that? Sorry, I should have asked THAT first.

Who says that Casio can continue with the same errors in the new line? If not correct this will customers believe in the new line? If I have 128mb or 256mb of memory sampler I want to enjoy it to the maximum without fear of giving problems. So my wish list would be: NOT BUGS PLEASE

    Tson, you're right. but the posts about Casio's support of the MZX are also spot-on and relevant: This is a very complex instrument with many different (ideally interconnected) capabilities and Casio has supported it hardly at all. it seems to me the company either signals its commitment to this product line w/ explanatory materials (tutorials, step by step instructions, whatever) as well as OS updates. or it doesn't. right now, Casio is not listening to its arranger customers. it seems like wasted effort to make wish lists for a product that may already be abandoned. we'll know by NAMM.

You can see which zone is currently selected by seeing a Z1, Z2, Z3, or Z4 in the display window. If you have a stage setting where you like the split point, choose a zone with those + and - buttons, then use the instrument selection panel that has all of the different banks for the various tones (piano, electric piano, guitar/bass, various synths, etc.) . Under a particular tone category, use the '+' and '-' keys ON THE FAR RIGHT side of the display window. This will select individual tones under the category. If you want to save the new setup with the tone in the selected zone for that stage setting, press the [Write] button and follow the prompts. In a list, the process is: 1. Choose the stage setting you want that has a split in the right place. 2. Choose a zone to change the sound on with the + and - keys to the left of the display screen 3. Choose an instrument group 4. Use the + and - keys on the far right side of the display to bring up the instrument you want 5. Do steps 2-4 for other zones you want to change 6. If you are happy, save the stage setting using the [Write] button.
