  1. CT-X VS MZ-X

    With the newly announced (And released) CT-X models i was wondering how the CT-X 3000 and 5000 are comparing with the MZ-X300 and 500. Of course higher polyphony on the MZ-X models (128 vs 64) Hex layers on the MZ-X, multi-pads, drawbars, sampling, color touchscreen, that are already quite a few advantages. BUT! What in terms of styles, sounds, quality, etc? Are the CT-X machines totally new/different beasts when it comes tho those categories? Or is it more or the same? The reason i'm asking this is because i'm getting rid of my Yamaha Tyros soon, and i'm thinking about buying 2 models.. CT-X5000 or the MZ-X300, both roughly the same price (CT-X is 479 in Holland and the MZ-X 530) But they seem to be totally different machines.. Anyone knows something more?
  2. A point of criticism

    So, i was thinking about some things today while playing my old beaten up Tyros (Buttons that are very hard to press, screen is broken, but it still plays great) And i was wondering what it is that makes Casio so far behind with technology? - The styles are pretty bland, 15 years ago their styles sounded lifeless and it seems that it hasn't changed, what's up with that? They could've atleast try to spice them up, right? - Only since 2 years we get 4 variations on a Casio (With the exception of the MZ-2000 but that was already 18 years ago and rumor has it that the machine was developed with Roland) - We get Versatile tones, super awesome! But again, this is almost ancient technology, first machine to have that was the Yamaha Tyros, and that came out in 2002.. - We now get a brand new sound engine which finally seems to allow saxophones to have natural vibrato and flutes to have an overblown effect when you press a key hard.. However, that was introduced by Yamaha in 1997 in their Sweet! Voices. That's 21 years old.. - Velocitylayered drums.. Sorry but i had a Technics KN2000 which already had that. 2 To be precise. And that machine came out in 1993. I can list a couple of other things (Touchscreen, Roland used that in 2005 in the G-70, polyphony of 128? PSR-9000 Springs to mind, that was 1999) BUt i think i've made my point.. I love Casio to death, i really really do! Don't get me wrong. And if the CT-X5000 is really going to sound even better than the CT-X700 then i will buy it as a replacement for my Tyros. But WHY o WHY are they so far behind? I mean, the technology i'm talking about is what 15-20 years old roughly, so why is it so hard for Casio to implement it in to their machines? Why is it so hard for them to catch up with their competitors, is it because they don't want to, or because the can't? Not bashing Casio (my main axe for 3 years was a CTK-731 and until last November i played a WK-1800) But, this is something that has been bothering me for quite some time. Can someone explain/elaborate ? Thanks!
  3. Kris Nicholson's Casio Love

    This guy is one of the biggest Casio keyboard collectors out there, he made a whole series about the MZ-2000 including talking about the construction! This was really awesome, i happen to know Kris from way back, around the time his first YouTube video's got online (KN-2000 review, stuff like that) And the way he treast arrangers is really cool! He knows how to get them to the limit! He also made a Michael Jackson style on the Casio WK-7600 and some wave-sequenceing kinda stuff! I don't have the timestamps, but this guy knows how to create styles!!! So just watch the complete video This guy really knows how to get keyboards sound like the brands intended them to sound, you know what i mean? The way those styles sound are like there's a live band playing, who needs a $5000 Genos when an $400 Casio can sound almost as good in the right hands?! (The only thing i dislike about his playing is the constant glissando's and scales he tends to do, but other than that he's really in a league of his own, not even joking, he's a beast!) He recently stopped doing all the Casio stuff and now is a Williams sponsored (or so he says he is) Musician and seems to pick up onKorg more, but i was hoping that he'd get in touch with the PX-5s for some reason! How many people on the forum know him/talk to him/are subscribed to his channel?
  4. The CT-X range!

    Well, we know that Casio has shown us a new range of products. The CT-X line of keyboards consisting of the CT-X700/800/3000/5000 The cheapest will cost around 179 dollars if i'm correct, and that will feature 48 notes of polyphony, a 12 watt speaker system, +- 200 styles and +- 600 sounds. The most expensive one will cost about 400 dollars, which is pretty darn cheap if you ask me. 64 notes of polyphony. 30 watt speaker system. +- 240 styles and +- 800 sounds, and 4! Variations per style. The best part?! They've introduced a new sound engine called the AiX, and if you listen to the CT-X700 you'll get blown away! It has better soundquality than the PSR-E series (That start at 150 dollars i believe) And better polyphony. My imagination is that (we haven't heard it yet unfortunately) The CT-X5000 will sound even BETTER! And yes, the guitars will now have velocity switched noises like slides and things like harmonics, that's impressive. There are 3 things that i don't like about this (Or maybe my expectations were to high because of the MZ-X range) - No touchscreen (The UI on the MZ-X looks fantastic) - No matter how hard Casio tries they just can't hold a candle to the Sweet! Voices on the Yamaha's (And that's 22 year old technology) - Still that weird box-styled keybed, how hard can it be to go back to proper style keybeds that don't rattle or clang? I'm hoping that this topic will go to a proper spot (If this isn't the correct one) And that we can have nice discussions about the machines, and i'm sure we will! Because let's be honest, Casio have really REALLY outdone themselves this time in a budget range of keyboards!
  5. casio XW-P1

    Hi everyone i have casio XW-P1, is there any chance to put new sounds in it? if it possible, how can i do that?
  6. I am new to this forum. I am looking to buy a Casio keyboard for my daughter (beginner pianist). I found a Casio Privia PX-120 at a reasonable price. The person says that it was purchased last year. Looks to be in mint condition. I am searching all over the web and cannot seem to find any recent info or discussions on this model. Everything dates back to 2008.... Not sure how new or how good this model is. The color of the keyboard is a slate grey. Does anyone have any idea? Thanks. Jeff
  7. Hi. My first test of CASIO CT-670, my the newest asset, heh. The song's name is "Mikromusikwerk 01". I left the original sound, just added some multitracking for various volume levels (which are not present on the machine itself). The sequencer was ATARI 520ST. Greetings.
  8. When I connect my Piano CDP-120 with usb cable type a-b my computer read it but I can't use my piano with LMMS (The software I have installed)... My first question is: Which is the driver download for CDP-120 for Windows 10? My second question is: Can I use LMMS or I have to install other software?
  9. Hi Folks, Nice to be here. My name is Marty W. I recently bought for my fiancee a Casio CTK-6200 Keyboard Sequencer. A very nice little machine. Years ago I owned a Roland XP-60 and while I loved that machine it was an absolute BEAR to deal with. So I'm really happy with the Casio. Here's the thing though...Linda is NOT a musician and I got her this so she could make use of track recording and: 1.) Learn some basic piano skills like chords and melody 2.) So she could record melodic ideas she comes up with for the lyrics she writes for us. She is the lyricist and I'm the musician. Very nice working relationship for the most part. However, as she's improved her lyrical skills, she finds that often she hears a melody in her head she wants me to use in the music but cannot sing it to me or play it. Hence the sequencer so she can simply record the melodic lines to the SSD drive and I can import it into my Studio One DAW. Nothing complicated for the moment. Eventually we will both jump in and incorporate it into the entire studio set up but for now that's all we need to do. Finally found a video that walks us through the track recording process, but for the moment just really need to be able to save the tracks she records. Cannot for some reason save these files to the sim card. Not sure what I'm doing wrong and cannot seem to find a simple press this and so on to do this simple process. It's got to be something simple I'm just not seeing on the keyboard but I could sure use some help. Thanks. Marty

  12. PX-360 USB Playback

    Hi, When I was sold the PX360 I was told I could play full song recordings via the USB so I can play along and practice the keyboard part. I have gone through the manual and cant find instructions how to do this. Can anyone help?
  13. Can anyone pls explain how to repeat a song in my casio privia px-150 music library. For example automatically playingback repeatedly song 21 instead of it changing to another song
  14. Hello everyone. My new song is here. (All of keyboard parts recorded by Casio XW-P1)
  15. I recently acquired a CZ101 one but this one seems to make a clicking noise when it receives MIDI data on other channels. For example, CZ set to channel 1, notes being played on channel 16 make a clicking noise corresponding to their durations, so its not random noise. If I turn them off in the MIDI program, those other channel clicks disappear, but the receiving channel still plays the clicks from its midi on messages. Playing the same patches via the keyboard there is no such raspy clicking noises. I was hoping somebody may have encountered this problem before and new how to fix it. thanks

  20. Where Download new sounds and rhythms and Put any someone knows? i created a group about casio px360 if u wanna get in https://www.facebook.com/groups/1800562313557181/?fref=ts
  21. Hello to everyone on the Casio Music Forum! I'm here looking for information on an old keyboard which I believe to be from the 1990s. It originally belonged to my grandmother, and now I use it in some of my music production because I like some of the sort of 90s sounds on it. Printed on the front is a list of 100 drum rhythms, as well as 100 sound presets. It says CASIO: PRO-300 in the center, and has a LCD screen that is 4.5 cm x 2 cm which displays numbers that correspond to whatever preset one might have selected. It incorporates the use of Pulse Code Modulation (PCM) sound as well as touch response, and adaptable, built in Reverb and Delay effects. I have attached a photograph of the keyboard to this thread. The things I'd like to know about this keyboard are: How much did it originally cost? What type of synthesis is used (or are they samples)? When did they first begin being produced? How long did they stay on the market? What is it worth now? Thanks in advance, I look forward to seeing what you all can provide!
  22. Hi guys, I've just bought this piano brand new from Thomann (really great shop to buy music instruments) but don't know what to think. I don't have many experiences with digital pianos and I've learned that Casio keyboards are generally more noisy comparing with Yamaha and I'm fine with that but one of the keys is extremely clunky on back stroke. What is even worse it is E4 key. Sounds like keyboard or hammer is touching some plastics when returning to it's default position. Like there is no damping on that place. There is another one which is a bit more noisy than rest but not as bad at this one. The rest of the keyboard is OK. I've made a video of that so what do you guys think ? Return and replace ? What are the odds to get another one with the same issue ? It's kind of expensive to send back to Germany. I'm not sure if it's a defect or not. Is this rare thing or normal for Casio keyboards ? The noise is pretty annoying during play and I can hear it even with headphones. Also it's not pleasant once the finger leave the key. Everything works flawlessly but this is pretty distracting. Thanks for your opinions...
  23. Hi all, I finally got round to uploading another of my XW demo tracks. This also uses both my XW-P1 and G1. Enjoy! https://soundcloud.com/twilight_dissidenthero/satellite
