  1. Hello everyone, I'm a little stuck on how to transfer midi files to my keyboard. It doesn't have a usb port, but I have the midi ports. I'm confused as to how I can transfer Rhythm files to my keyboard from my computer. I have the files that I need, but I'm not sure how to copy the files over to my keyboard. Many thanks Sarah B
  2. This is a review I wrote recently for a spanish forum (which is not indexed by Google and so on unavailable for most people). I think it may be of use for potential buyers of a medium range keyboard so I'm including it here even when it's written in spanish and this is an english forum just because posting it here will make it widely available (Google does index this forum). Anyway, if you don't speak spanish and still want to read it, you can use this automatic translation tool. Hasta hace bien poco Casio hacía teclados que eran prácticamente de juguete (salvo alguna honrosa excepción en forma de sintetizador), y las gamas medias eran monopolizadas por Yamaha. Pues resulta que la cosa ha cambiado, Casio ahora fabrica sintetizadores con bastante buena pinta, pianos electrónicos (de esos que usan los estudiantes de conservatorio) que al parecer son magníficos, y han tomado al asalto las gamas medias de teclados portátiles. Yamaha tiene que andarse con ojo para que sus gamas medias (PSR-E) no sean mejores que sus gamas altas (Tyros) para no hacerse la competencia a si mismos, pero como Casio no tiene nada superior en teclados portátiles (el WK7600 es exactamente igual que el CTK7200 pero con una octava más), pues resulta que no tienen que autolimitarse y han sacado una gama media que es acojonante. He probado los Yamaha PSR-E 443 (320 € en Thomann), Casio CTK 7200 (345 € en Thomann), un Roland BK3 (491 € en Thomann) y un Korg PA50SD (666 € en Thomann). El Yamaha suena razonablemente bien, estando muy orientado hacia el aprendizaje, el Roland es de una calidad similar al Yamaha (a pesar del muy excesivo precio) y tiene como pega que la luz parpadeante del tempo es un incordio (y aunque intenté apagarla no pude). El Korg tiene unos sonidos de una calidad de la ostia (entre ellos un Vox Continental y varios Hammonds), pero es demasiado complejo para mi gusto, tiene muchísimas opciones de configuración y el precio se me escapa, sobre todo si comparamos la relación calidad precio con el Casio. El Casio CTK-7200 tiene unos sonidos que en mi opinión están mucho más cerca de los Korg que de los Yamaha o de los Roland, tiene varios bancos de sonido (piano, cuerdas, guitarras, synth, etc) de los que dos son para órganos, uno el típico banco variado de órganos con 53 órganos de todo tipo siendo el otro un banco exclusivo para emulación de drawbar organs, es decir emulación de órganos tipo Hammond B3, con 50 presets y la posibilidad de pasar de los presets y configurar a tu gusto 9 barras deslizadoras que emulan un Hammond B3 de verdad, con o sin altavoz Leslie y con o sin dos tipos diferentes de percusión, lo que te permite clavar infinidad de tonos clásicos de órgano, como Booker T & The MGs, Jimmy Smith, Procol Harum, etcétera. Decir que entre los primeros hay uno que recuerda un poco al Vox Continental (el 11: Elec. Organ 3), en cuanto pueda me pondré a ver si lo edito y consigo sacarle un parecido aun mayor, y que el segundo bloque es exactamente eso, una emulación directa de un Hammond B3, lo cual hasta ahora era lo nunca visto en un teclado de este precio. Todos los sonidos son (moderadamente) editables, con una docena de parámetros o así por cada sonido (y las 9 barras del Hammond) y la posibilidad de meterle 100 tipos de efecto DSP diferentes (vibrato, tremolo, distorsion, chorus, etc). También viene con una mesa de mezclas multipista (que puede grabar y mezclar sonido real, por ejemplo desde un micrófono) y un montón de ritmos de acompañamientos, que tienen buena fama pero que ni he probado porque no me interesa esa función. Las teclas son de bastante buena calidad, grandes como un piano, pero hay que admitir que son algo ruidosas, a veces parece como si rozasen ligeramente unas con otras, pero tienes que estar muy pendiente para percibirlo. Otra pega es que no tiene conectividad MIDI (pero tiene entrada SD y USB). Total, que me he comprado el Casio CTK-7200 en el Unión Musical de la Calle Arenal (Madrid) por 418 € (si, 73 € más caro que en Thomann y a la vez 150 € más barato que en el Corte Inglés, o sea, de Thomann a El Corte Inglés pasa de 345 a 565 euros) y estoy más contento que unas pascuas. Solo echo en falta un sonido Vox Continental directamente sampleado de uno auténtico (y un Farfisa también molaría mucho), pero vaya, echándole algo de imaginación el Elec. Organ 3 me hace el apaño por ahora y aun no me he puesto a editarlo (mayormente porque me pase dos horas el sábado tocando el I'm A Believer de los Monkees). Asi pues, recomiendo efusivamente a cualquiera que esté planteándose el comprar un teclado de gama media que le eche un vistazo a este nuevo modelo de Casio, porque la relación calidad/precio es realmente asombrosa y es en general muy superior a sus más directos competidores.
  3. Hi chaps, After browsing this forums for several days since I got my CTK 6200 for two weeks so found that you can't really create a new rhythm from scratch . My ideal instrument now would be CTK 7200 but I got a good deal on ebay for a few months used CTK 6200 for £100 delivered Yesterday, I was trying to convert the rhythms/styles from Korg PA series to the Casio CKF so that I could load this into my CTK 6200. My workflow is: 01. Convert Korg PA style to Yamaha PSR 630 (SSF 1 styles which is actually midi file SMF format 0). I used Style Works XT style converter. 02. Rename the converted file extension .STY to .MID 03. Open the MIDI file in your sequencer (I used Cakewalk Pro 9 - old but very easy to use. You could use Anvil Studio free or something you're familiar with) 04. Change the drum track(s) from Channel 9 to Channel 10 05. Change bass track to Channel 11 06. Tweaks tracks for Chord tracks 12 to 16 (***Issues see below) 07. Test by connecting to your keyboard and playing each part as you hear the actual out from the Keyboard. (I actually connect the keyboard and set midi output of sequencer to keyboard before even opening converted file) 08. Save the file of you're happy. 09. Launch Casio Rhythm converter (part of IDES suit for last generation keyboards such as CTK 900 etc.) and open the converted style MIDI file 10. Set the markers for Casio rhythm parts i.e. Intro, variation, ending, fill etc. according to what is marked in the midi file converted and marked for Yamaha style. The Rhythm converter needs the starting point and number of bars so actual sequence in the midi file doesn't matter as long as you specify the part correctly 11. Convert to CKF rhythm by menu option Convert to Pattern which will save as Casio CKF file 12. Copy to your SD card in the Casio specific folder 13. Now load the rhythm (CKF) file in your keyboard in one of the user styles slot. 14. Now play! and have fun! *** Issues: The Casio CKF file only support 5 tracks for auto-accompaniment rhythm * Channel 10: Drum track * Channel 11: Bass track * Channel 12: Chord 1 track * Channel 13: Chord 2 track * Channel 14: Chord 3 track But the new generation of keyboards (CTK 6000/6200/7000/7200) supports 8 tracks for a rhythm in new AC7 file format. Technically it supports: * Channel 10 to 14 similar to CKF format plus 2 more channels * Channel 15: Chord 4 track * Channel 16: Chord 5 track which is great news and it makes the new generation Casio to stand with Yamaha, Roland and Korg in terms of style track counts. But right know I cannot utilise the track 15 and 16 due to stuck in the conversion from Midi to CKF. So I cannot transform the Korg PA styles to Casio rhythm completely and bound to exclude/ignore track 15 and 16. What I need is SMF(MIDI) to AC7 converter which has not seen the light of the day yet. Well, this is my journey so far. I think I am kind of happy because I have happily converted Korg PA series Progressive style and playing with the on my Casio 6200 but I would be more glad If I could completely reproduce the complete Korg rhythm for my keyboard Any help/comments would be great! I would share my converted Korg style with you guys soon for your feedback. Cheers, iNain
  4. drum loops in ctk511

    i have an old CTK-511 (from i think 1998 could be wrong) on it are 100 rhythms and when i dont add the preset accompaniment they are just drum loops. my question is does anyone know if the drum loops are in public domain or if i use them as a drum track in music i write (addin my own guitar/bass) will i have to pay Casio royalties or some form of licensing fee? any info would be immensely helpful
  5. Hello, I have recently bought the CTK - 2400 model online and it just game and I noticed there isn't a MIDI in attached to the keyboard, only a Input in, I was trying to hook it up to the computer in order to use fl studio, How would I hook this up? what cords do I need to buy? let me know asap! thanks!
  6. Hi, I am not able to connect my Casio CTK-4400 to PC. Configuration is Windows 7 and the software is Adobe audition C6. Kindly help. One more question is... If I connect my phone to the keyboard and play karaoke, Can I record that along with my own composition? Thanks Immi
  7. I don't know if I'm allowed to ask this/ask it here, but is there a sound that is like the keyboard in take on me? I've been wanting to try to recreate it. If there's something that's similar but not exact, I'm okay with that
  8. Hello to all. I recently bought a CASIO CT-470 and a CASIO CTK-500. The CASIO CTK-470 comes with his original PSU, but the CTK-500 came with a no brand PSU rated at 9V and 500 mA (and it seems that it requires 850mA, I don't know how this keyboard has been survived). The manual of both states that the CASIO AD-5 is what both needs; If you search on the net for spares, it seems that not only the AD-5E exists, there are many PSU with the AD-5X suffix, and I don't know if the AD-5E is the same as the AD-5. So, the AD-5E PSU is the correct one for the CTK-500?. Many thanks!.
  9. Got a CTK 7200 and would like to have RegFltAcmp set to ON each time I turn it ON. I have the Auto Resume set to ON and it does retain all changes except RegFltAcmp. It keeps going back to OFF and I have to manually set it to ON every time I turn the keyboard ON. Could you check this on your CTK-7000, 7500, 7200, or 7600 and leave your comments. Thank you in advance. Kord
