  1. 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...
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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!
  5. CT-403 Repair

    Hey all, I'm new to this forum, but I'm looking for help repairing my Casiotone 403. I accidentally knocked it over and it now no longer powers on. If anyone happens to have any experience with these and could point me in the direction of the possible components which might've failed, I would be eternally grateful.
  6. 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
  7. 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.

  10. PX-360 USB Playback

  12. CASIO CZ-101.

    The CZ-101 is a simple synthesizer, but unique. You can share things about this great little synth: videos, images and / or text.
  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
  16. Hi i am selling my HZ600 anyone interested? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/201838601525?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 I can also sell it outside ebay, make me an offer! Thanks! ( i am not sure if this is allowed on this forum, but if its not ill just remove the post, accept my apologies!) Bye, from another Casio Freak! Paolo
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Please tell me how to download different tones from the net for the piano
  20. Hi everyone! I need your help because I'm not able to set the PX5s as I want. Basically, in my Yamaha Motif's SONG I have programmed 3 channels in which the channel 2 is totally played by my Motif, the channel 1 is totally played by PX5s and channel 3 is layered with channel 1 on the PX5s but I would like that the CH 3 is enabled when I increase the slider number 1. I think that it's possible, but how can I do it? Thanks! Francesco
  21. PX-5S FAQ

    How do you select Stage Settings from MIDI (Another keyboard or iPad Remote Control)?Bank 112, followed by a program change 0-99 will select the Stage SettingsWhen can I download the Mac/PC editor?Tentatively on or around April 19thI've tried all the velocity curves the piano is either too loud or too soft for my needsThe pianos are set by default for a very wide dynamic range (as are all Privia models).You can reduce the dynamic range yourself. Press the EDIT button, select TONE. Go to the AMP page. Find velocity and reduce it from a value of +64 to around 40. You'll have to scroll back up to the stop of the AMP page and reduce the overall volume to compensate. We will be posting variations on the piano for download later in April. What is the warranty on the PX-5SIn the US it is 1 year plus an additional 2 years when you register your purchase online. http://www.onlineregister.com/casio/registration/?category=Keyboards Can the MIDI Solutions Pedal Controller be used on the PX-5S for expression or sustainMany people have expressed interest in using this device with the PX-5S to use either as an expression pedal or to use with a continuous damper pedal such as the Roland DP-10. The MIDI Solutions product only transmits on 1 MIDI channel. This means that regardless of how you're using (expression or sustain) it can only control 1 zone of the PX-5S at a time. While we are investigating ways to provide better integration with devices such as this, this does NOT mean that anything is planned or guaranteed. If there is ever an official announcement of a firmware update you'll here it from me, here on this forum I've downloaded sounds from this forum and put them on the USB drive, but I can not load them.​The files need to be placed in the MUSICDAT folder on the USB drive for the PX-5S to see them.
