  1. Closest thing to MZ-X500 ??

    The closest Casio keyboard related to MZ-X500 is MZ-X300.
  2. Are there any styles/rhythms available?

    Hi Rick, I have imported Yamaha BCS, PRS, STY and SST styles and it was always done automatically with that channel assignments you mentioned, without any tweaking. I am very happy with that feature. Ladislav
  3. Hi Steve, congratulation to your keyboard and nice story. BTW, what doesn't work now - keyboard or power supply? Have a wonderful day Ladislav
  4. Well I "almost" got one! - From Bax

    Hi, my X300 came with power supply, music stand, manual and some other papers, like Satefy Precautions, in many languages. No tutorial, no DVD. I think that with X500 it is the same. But missing original power supply... it looks quite bad... What about warranty? Wouldn't it be better to return this one and buy a „sure“ new X300 for less money?
  5. Why WOULDN'T one buy MZ X500 ?

    For not buying X500 there are not only expectations missed by it. Sure there are such high demanding people. But there are also people with lower expectations/demands, maybe less creative with songs, tones and rhythms (like me), who don't nead hex layers and many illuminated multifunctional pads with chord progression. For them there is X300 here.
  6. Recording phrases

    Brad, thank you very, very much. It works. And it looks really simple now. Ladislav
  7. Recording phrases

    Thanks, Brad, but I am still doing something wrongly. Here are photos of keyboard display. On the first one you can see, that Guitar Set and Clean Guitar is selected for recording. When playing now on keyboard, Elec.Organ4 would sound (it is Upper 1). On the fifth photo - just before recording - you can see Temporary instead of Clean Guitar. And on the last photo - just after recording - there is Elec.Organ4 tone recorded. Phrase tone enable On or Off has no impact on this behaviour. Changing pad parts for recording has also no impact. How can I change pad parts and their tones for playback? Because setting Select > Part (Enter) > any part number after recording has no impact on tone - it is apparently not playback setting, just setting for possible next record.
  8. Recording phrases

    I need advice from experienced users here. I would like to record phrase with another tone than Upper 1, e.g. Sax or Trumpet when Upper 1 is Elec. Piano. Even in tutorial there are no details about how to record such phrases. I tried it many times and everytime the phrase was recorded with Elec. Piano tone, although I selected BigBand Sax, some Guitar or Voice. Just once I think I got normal piano tone when Strings selected. But I am not able to repeat even this experience. I just saw that Phrase tone enable should be Off to get all notes sequence as played during recording. When set to On, notes played during pad playback depend on chords played in accompaniment. Please, can somebody advice me in detail all settings for recording phrase with another tone than Upper 1?
  9. Pad synchronizing

    Thank you very much, Brad Ladislav
  10. Pad synchronizing

    There is probably a mistake on page EN-36 in manual - Synchronizing Pads with Accompaniment. „While holding down the SYNCHRO/START button, tap the pad you want to synchronize with“ doesn't work this way on my MZ-X300, just that pad is playing immediately. The only way for me was „While holding down the SYNCHRO/START button, press Synchro button (in pad area) and tap the pad you want to synchronize with“, Synchro/Start and Synchro buttons start blinking. Have you similar experience, is this a difference between MZ-X300 and MZ-X500 or is it something else?
  11. Hawaii guitar tone

    Yes Brad, it is probably lap steel guitar. Do you know how to create sound similar to that? Or where to download it from?
  12. Hawaii guitar tone

    Hi guys, I need advice how to create (or even better where to download from) Hawaii guitar tone for MZ-X300. Thanks in advance Ladislav
  13. mixer mystery

    Yes, 1.21, but MZ-X300
  14. mixer mystery

    Hi Ian, yesterday arrived my brand new keyboard with firmware version 1.21. The latest one is 1.5. Ladislav
