  1. Those PX-560 tones are not sample data. Those are edited tones using factory sample data. That model does not have sample expansion memory. The MZ-X can load samples but you'll have to look elsewhere for them, not PX-560 tones.
  2. Keys respond to velocity, not pressure. Imagine swatting a fly rather than squashing a sandwich. 😉
  3. So far I have not found a way to change registrations on the MZ via midi using the PX-5S. I haven't tried the other way around. As far as sample memory, what you quoted (now 48 total samples due to firmware update, not 36) is dedicated sample memory for the pads, not overall sample memory for tones. Beyond pad samples, the MZ-X500 has an additional 256mb of flash expansion memory for loading new wave data as "tones with waves".
  4. The distortion DSP effect works like this. Dist Gain is the virtual amp gain control . As the gain increases, so does volume and distortion. Even more distortion can be achieved by boosting tone amp volume level to maximum. You'll need to offset the volume boost caused by increasing gain by reducing the DSP effect output level (Dist Level). Hint: This is where target two of the the pedal comes into use again. Reverse the min max values for level to offset gain.
  5. Auto accompaniment and auto harmonize, which is tied together, can only be recorded to the system track.
  6. Here is the page for Casio Canada service contact info. http://www.casioca.com/support/authorized-service
  7. Ok. I would begin to reconnect the rig and try to pinpoint which component of the setup causes the issue. Could be MIDI related.
  8. Best way to find out if it's the board itself is to disconnect everything from it and play it as a standalone instrument. There could be something going on with the internal circuitry.
  9. Oops. I forgot to mention you'll need to use both targets of a knob. One for wet level, the other for dry level. Reverse the min max values to achieve a crossfade.
  10. This should be done by creating user tones with the DSP effect wet parameter set to zero. Then use a knob to to bring up the wet level. That's the smoothest way to do it.
  11. Which tone and which DSP effect? There is another way I am sure.
  12. Audacity has an effect called "normalize". That will do it.
  13. Here is where our "help files", the user manual, mentions how to save a tone. Page EN-23 Editing a tone.
  14. The header data overwrite function is for the midi recorder only. Make sure you are choosing the proper mixer port when you are making adjustments to tones. The midi recorder is port C.
  15. You'll need to start with a stage setting that has the sliders programmed to send CC 07 Volume. Here is one made as a template for just such a setup.
