  1. Need Advice for Upgrading from CGP-700

    The PX-360 and PX-560 allow you to create your own rhythms, 10 on the PX-360 and 30 on the PX-560. Both have 50 slots for your own Music Presets. The piano tone is better on both, with string resonance and key off simulation. Neither has a mic input per se, but both have 2 1/4" inputs. Both models have the color touch screen and a very similar layout to the CGP-700, so you should be able to jump in and be very familiar with either model.
  2. Any PX-5s successor yet in 2018?

    Mike Martin posted in the Keyboard Corner the following:
  3. Px5s and virtual piano for ipad

    Have you tried any other instruments on the iPad? There are several free ones that you could use to test. I would want to know if other ones work okay for you and then we can go from there.

    Who has said that? No one that I see. OTOH, if someone claims that Casio products are cheap, do not work, etc., like someone did above, others may say that they and many others haven't had the same problems so to act like Casio is bad when you got one lemon is unfair. It's not denying they had problems, but just stating that their problems aren't representative. As far as your issues, I'm sorry that you had them. I doubt Mike thought you were lying about your power supply failure, but I'm sure he was surprised by it. That power supply is used by many Casio models and it's more likely that someone lose it than it actually fail. Yours is the first that I've heard of, ever. That doesn't mean it never happens, just that it's rare.
  5. Touchscreen Problems and Registration Question

    Have you ever tried the touchscreen elsewhere such as a store model? (The PX-360, CGP-700, and MZ-X series all have it as well.) I'm wondering if it's the touchscreen on yours or the way you're interacting with it. It's a little different than the touchscreen on smart phones, and I find that the angle you approach it can be important.
  6. PX-360 max USB memory stick size?

    You don't *need* to buy the SP-33 for the CGP-700, but it's a nice add-on. The SP-32 and SP-33 are NOT compatible. The SP-32 is for the older Casios, the SP-33 is for the newer ones. The SP-33 works with models such as the PX-160, 360, 560, CGP-700, while the SP-32 works with the PX-350 and others of that generation, I believe. Please check compatibility before buying. Also, the SP-32 and SP-33 are best used with a Casio stand. If you are using a third-party stand the pedal unit won't be attached to anything.
  7. Help! Can't download Firmware 1.13. Please assist

    I didn't have an issue with the Casio download link, either. Hopefully Fritz got his PX-5S working, and maybe can find out later what the issue was with the download, or he just had some bad timing with some internet problem occurring when he needed it least.
  8. sad

    It's tempting to nuke this thread since he doesn't even mention what product he's talking about and it's his only post so I'm betting he'll never be back. He could prove me wrong...
  9. PX-310 half dead keys

    That would be up to you. There have been some threads around here about disassembling some other models, I would imagine this would be similar. If parts are worn, I don't know if replacements are available. OTOH, if things in there are just gummed up, maybe all it needs is a good cleaning.
  10. Can a Casio WK1200 be used a a MIDI controller?

    With what you describe, it should totally work. You may need the right driver for the MIDI to USB device, or it may just plug and play. I would try that first. I would also recommend MIDI Monitor in case you have problems. It will tell you if your Mac is seeing the MIDI data. One thing I'm not clear on is if you're trying to record the sounds generated in GarageBand with Studio One. I don't think there's a way to do that directly, but you could export the audio for each sound from GB and use that in Studio One I guess.
  11. Connecting to Chrome

    Are you talking about audio files recorded from your keyboards? They should be wav files and I would think even Chrome should recognize those. The USB drives themselves are formatted as FAT32, so it might depend if Chrome OS can read that disk format.
  12. CGP-700 Speakers audio level issue

    That is odd. The first thing I might suggest is to go into the settings and turn the external speakers off and try again. If the instrument sounds the same, then perhaps the external speakers are on but somehow aren't properly connected or working.
  13. CMF looks different today

    You are going nuts. But it is different. The forum software often has security updates and I guess the latest came with some visual changes as well.
  14. CGP700 - Connect to WIndows 10?

    If your PC system is class compliant then you may not need to download drivers, but you may need to be running a program that responds to MIDI. You might want to try an app like MIDIOX (I think that's how it's spelled - I'm a Mac guy) to see if the computer is recognizing MIDI at all and go from there.
  15. JK PX-5S Soundbank 1

    You're in the wrong place. If you have a CDP 130 there are other places on the forum to discuss it, and if you're generally looking for MIDI software, you need to ask in a topic area here that's more general.
