  1. Rich introduces the LK-265:
  2. From Casio: "Additionally, users can import song data (MIDI format) into Chordana Play, link to other electronic keyboards in Casio’s portfolio (including the Key Lighting and Standard keyboards) and connect to both Apple and Android tablets using a standard audio cable." The app will be available for Android as well - nice touch! Tablets only because smartphone screens are too small? Other than that, good idea, but still not for me. I hope Casio will have something in the pipeline for Musikmesse. EDIT: Come to think of it - if you can't use headphone out with newer Apple devices, I wonder how that will work without headphone plug ... ;-)
  3. Mike Martin talks about the new boards: Available for $99-149 in June, maybe earlier. However, I just bought a WK-7600, so I'm good to go anyway ... ;-)
  4. The Numa Compact 2 looks like a nice board, unfortunately not battery-powered: http://www.studiologic-music.com/products/numa_compact2/
  5. The new Akai costs 2000 bucks, the Casio was available for much less. Now price is much higher and supply low. Maybe we'll have a classic and the price will be steep soon. ;-)
  6. Ralph Maten showing what can be done with the new sounds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21uNPiZkOcw
  7. Hmmm ... maybe a PX-5S successor? The prices in Germany are going crazy right now. €641 new, €595 as B-stock ... Winter NAMM will tell us ...
  8. Deleted because deal is gone.
  9. I'd rather see an MZ-X with 88 keys in a light case à la PX-5S, with 256 notes of polyphony. You can dream, can't you?
  10. It's in Germany, at several shops (voelkner, digitalo, Conrad). The XW-DJ1 is even cheaper: 59 EUR! I bought my PD1 5 months ago for 149 bucks. Now the PD1 and the DJ1 are really cheap ...
  11. You don't need to install a driver for your keyboard in Windows 10. For lower latency, however, it can help to install the ASIO driver (expecially when having a lower-spec'ed PC/notebook: http://www.asio4all.com
  12. I just downloaded one. Works for me. Using Opera 38. EDIT: I uploaded the file here: http://www.file-upload.net/download-11790282/PX-5SFAQNOV14.pdf.html Please make sure you have adblock enabled.
  13. If I'm not mistaken Dave's Rhodes is included in the ALL File. It was uploaded in 2014. Needing further proof for how great the Rhodes sound (starting at 5:30), please watch Steve Weingart: If that's not an endorsement, I don't know what is ... ;-)
  14. Dave Weiser provided a few in the Vintage Keys Set: You can listen to them via soundcloud.
  15. The only thing I can grant the FA-06 is that an FA-08 is available with 88 keys. Maybe Casio can follow suit soon sans the IMHO quite steep extra cost of 600 bucks for the better keybed (in Germany at least) ... EDIT: Come to think of it - it might be a PX-6S ...
