  1. Noise gate on audio input ?

    I don't disagree that a mixer is a better choice, in general, but in many cases having that stereo audio in comes very handy and there are many other instruments which have that feature and working fine (such as my Roland FP4, for example), no noise or noise gates required. By the way, on the PX560 the (HW) problem is apparently solved, Audio In jacks go directly to output mix withouth any noise gate...
  2. PX-5S Updated ALL File

  3. Almost decided upon the PX5S but.....

    I am afraid the answer is no, for sure for the 2nd point (Expression) as it would require a HW modification; for Transpose, being a software feature there is still space for an implementation at Firmware level, but at the moment the transpose function is "deep in the menus" (as you said).
  4. Audio/line in issue

    You can't... Look at the signal path diagram in the manual, this is also the cause for the "noise gate" effect which is causing problems to effectively use the audio input in many circumstances (there is discussion on this problem in this forum here )Theoretically to turn off the Compressor you should set the threshold to 0, but that doesn't seem to fix the "noise gate issue" actually (as I and other users have tried and observed)
  5. Noise gate on audio input ?

    Up.. just to remind Casio that we expect at least a feedback to know whether this issue can be solved by a FW update or not...

  7. One reason the PX 5S is special

    Not to put it down, but maybe it is also thanks to the headphones (which ones do you use?) and keeping the volume level right?
  8. MIDI MERGE

    The PX-5s doesn't support the Midi Merge capability in the current firmware version (1.13) so at the moment the only option is to use an external MIDI Merge box.
  9. Transmitted key velocity range?

    PX5-s sends full velocity range 0-127, though I have observed that with the Normal setting I can hardly get to 118, while with the Light setting I easily get to 127 but I lose control on low velocities range, so I keep the normal and prefer to adjust the velocity curve on the VIs (if required) I also keep High Res Velocity switched off, since there are just a handful of VIs which can handle it (e.g. pianoteq) and on the other hand CC88 can cause problems with other MIDI equipment which don't support HiResVel but use CC88 for something else (e.g the Nords) If you have Windows you can use MidiOX to monitor your MIDI data, on OS X there is the Midi Monitor program (both are freeware)

    Version 1.3

    714 downloads

    My own attempt at building a "neutral" acoustic piano stage setting, I focused particularly on dynamics (master compressor and Tone amplifier velocity settings) and trying to correct the timbre of the central octave (F3-F4) which is where I really don't like the way the original PX5s piano samples sound (I tried to compensate using Master EQ and also trying a different Stretch Tuning setting in the Tone Pitch section)
  11. PX-5s Mainstage 3 Layouts

    Version 1.0

    230 downloads

    The attached file contains 2 layouts for MainStage 3 that mimic the controls section of the PX-5s. One layout is graphically simple and "linear", the other is more "photorealistic"; both layouts are unmapped and fully customizable so you can adapt them to your liking and needs. To use the layout, create a new (or load an existing) Mainstage concert, then go in Layout mode and using the top-left "gear" menu select "Import Layout..". As a general consideration, if you plan to use the PX-5s with Mainstage, I suggest that you create a specific Stage Setting for that, with a single Zone/Channel and assign generic MIDI CC numbers to S1-6 and K1-4; then you can map them to the layout I posted (and do the rest of mappings, zoning etc. within MainStage)

  15. Issue with panning....

    Yes, I finally had time to try it myself too and, regardless how it is set, I can still pan each Zone from the Mixer, so it is strange but I cannot reproduce your problem.@BradMZ: looking at the PX5 User Guide (Tutorial) Diagram on page E-7 I see that you can pan any DSP effect, provided you set the Pan position parameter to "Post DSP"; System and Master effects of course can't.
