  1. Been having a blast getting to know my way around this board. It's so user friendly that as I stumble about and try different things I learn more all the time. Being a player (don't use the auto accompaniment much, at least not yet), for me its all about the sounds, and having options. Being systematic, I like creating systems that invite spontanaiety while playing in jam sessions. So far I've been tackling easy, obvious targets. Like populating the registrations with a bank of piano sounds, a bank of EPs, a bank of organs, hex layers, etc. My approach so far has been to mostly use all 4 tones for layering, using Upper 1 as the main or starter Tone, Upper 2 as a supporting, complimentary tone that can be turned on to typically thicken the sound. Lower 1 more often than not is a bass guitar, and Lower 2 is the wild card, often times a hex layer. Building up my User Tones is also part of this effort, which of course is done when you go into Edit mode. Most Tones have the volume lower than 127, even quieter Tones that need more volume. I suppose by having more them at a more moderate volume you don't run the risk as much of overloading the board with too hot of combined signals, but I'd rather know I've got access to full volume, which can be moderated on the Balance page. Have to give major kudos out to Casio. The hex tones solve so many conundrums: how do you have great flexibility and power, while maintaining simplicity? By having registrations with 4 easy to access and see sounds, you've made it very simple to do a lot of basic things with your sounds. Add to that, the User Tones are not just one big pile like it was with the 7600, the User Tones are part of their own sound category, and are easy to get to. And by having some things that are saved to a registration, like relative volume of Tones, and some things that are saved to User Tones, where you get your in depth editing, you get a smooth workflow, though i suppose that structure is inherent in any arranger I've ever seen. And then add to that hex Tones, you get the complexity and depth many of us want, without it being a requirement. Cause hex layers do require another learning curve, but at least you can do the simpler things with ordinary Tones to get yourself started. Am just loving having 6 sliders to control the hex layers. Much to learn, a lot of power, haven't found a solo mode yet though, and wish there was a way (maybe i just haven't found it yet) to know at a glance the name of the layers, the velocity and keyboard ranges they're set to, and if they're on or off. Maybe that's too much info to convey on one screen? Seems like a likely place for an iPad editor, being able to see all of that info for all six layers on one screen would be tremendously helpful. As it is I play in different ranges of the keyboard, from soft to loud, to see if there's even a sound assigned and turned onto that layer. Am looking forward to customizing the existing hex tones and building my own! Editing Tones: tonight i was lowering all my Piano and EP User Tones by an octave. Doing such puts you in the lowest range of an acoustic piano, (minus the lowest B, Bb and A), and truth be told, I consistently play more in the lowest two octaves and hardly miss the uppermost octave I'm sacrificing by doing this. Not that I play so deeply all the time, but having ready acces to that lowest octave is great for left hand bass, grabbing a few notes when you need them. Adding system fx and the DSP really helps a lot of sounds. The Reverb and Chorus on this board is soooo much better than what was offered on the WK7600. Its fast and a blast to use the XY pad for dialing in the DSP setting. For renaming my Tones, I put a capital U at the very end, which means I've got to slightly abbreviate some of the names. It's very useful knowing which Tones have been massaged by me into a U ser Tone. At first I didn't even notice the settings are shown on the Main page for the 2 knobs. It makes sense that by default they're set to eq, esp. low eq, many of these patches can really rumble. I hope y'all get a chance to play this board with some serious amplification. The onboard speakers do a pretty ok job, but it's impossible for them to compete with a QSC K10 or my new K8.2. When you hear the full range, fidelity and astounding bass coming from this board you're instantly glad to have the means to hear what this board can do. I've been kind of blown away by many of the sounds, the basses, the lush strings, the pads, the pianos, and to some degree the EPs. First time I noticed the rhythms that are associated with each registration. Went thru a few of them, and it was quite fun to play along with some of the pop and rock rhythms. So much to explore, so many registrations to customize! Randy
  2. Hi. Am trying to register some volume changes I made in the Mixer Edit screen of the pattern sequencer of Rock Pop 1. I reduced the volume of all the Rhythm parts to around 65, to allow the use of a new mic. Is there any reason why the new volume settings I made in the Mixer Edit page won't be recalled after I Registered them to Area 1 of Bank 1? Seems like all volume levels of the Rhythms are back to full volume after powering on again and selecting Bank 1 - Area 1 (first button). Probably some simple thing, but have checked that no Filters are applied - all set to Off. Thanks in advance.
  3. I am considering a PX-560 for a stage piano. However, one thing I frequently need to do is make a smooth transition from one sound to the next. For example, if I am playing a piano part and the next part is for strings. I want to play the last piano note, switch to the strings with the sustain pedal down, and while the piano note is fading, start playing strings. Some keyboards allow this and others cut off all sound when changing registrations/tones. Does the PX-560 allow for changing registrations without cutting off the previous notes. Thank you for your assistance.
  4. Okay - yes - I'm back! Not sure where I'm going wrong but I'm trying to alter a volume of parts (in this case A12) in a particular registration. First, I thought it wasn't saving, but now I'm finding after I lower the volume either via slider or wheel and then save it, it not only saves the part change in one registration, but carries over to the next. Any advice? ....and now I'm editing this post again. After turning the keyboard off and on, I have realized that no change at all was saved to a registration. Help Please....................... Yet again editing - I've decided to try one-touch presets instead since I'm frustrated w/the registrations but still would like info it possible. Re: user presets: 1. Can you save "Accomp" to a non-flashing state (non-chord). I did see you could set it to play intro and synch but I didn't see a choice for accomp. 2. Can you edit (via mixer - I think) volume of parts A9-A16 and have them saved in either a user preset or registration? 3. What is the difference between a registration and a user preset except for ease of access? 4. When you edit volumes and want to save them, is always via the mixer? 5. Have I asked you enough questions about the volumes of things yet? Thank you! Melissa
  5. I'm playing my PX-330 in a gig which requires very fast changes between patches, often without any break. Searching for the correct button on the keyboard to change registrations often takes too long. Is there a way to set up a key or a pedal which can be pressed to cycle through registrations? Or is there a simple software solution to store and change registrations? I've previously used mainstage, however I'd rather use the sounds from the keyboard rather than the software.
