I WANT an MZ-X500, mostly due to the awesome videos from Ralph Maten on YouTube. (However, I suspect he has done some serious custom editing on his MZ to do what he does.) But it's awesome! If the MZ-X500 was 76 keys, I would have bought one already. (Maybe for NAMM in January...please Casio!) In the meantime, I'm trying to educate myself on this awesome board.
So, articulations. I can't get my hands on an MZ anywhere in my area, but I played the Yamaha PSR-S970 yesterday and the Super Articulations are ... WOW! Can the MZ create these articulations (fret slides, keyoffs) in the melody hand while playing, like the Yamaha, or do I have to hit special keys in the lower register or pads to trigger these random (but gorgeous) nuances? I looked at the Appendix pg 15, referencing "Versatile Tones" but I'm still not clear on this.
