Greetings to all,

Has anyone had the urge to create a metronome other than the one provided with our AP (or most PX for that matter)?  As I am mostly a beginner both at learning the basics of piano and venturing into the possibilities offered by my AP-650, I need to practice my Muzio Clementi part with a metronome as requested by my piano teacher.  But the AP (and/or PX) metronome (especially the *DING*) is driving me literally UP the walls.  Has anyone programmed/created a metronome sound from the rhythms section (into a “User Rhythm) for the same reason that I am hoping to achieve: use a friendly non-abrasive metronome sound that can be recorded on the USB flash key as I wish to report via Internet to my piano teacher with a wav (or MP3 once transformed) file of the part (Muzio) accompanied by the friendly metronome creation.  This metronome rhythm could simply be “Wood Block” in 8 beat rhythm accentuated/punctuated by an effect such as reverb, different pitch (if possible) or simply greater volume.

I have been reviewing the user manual for several minutes (read hours) and venturing in trying to achieve this goal but without any foreseeable success.

Can anyone here (Casio AP/PX tech-savvy friend) please help hoping this might come in handy to others as well?

Many thanks in advance.

I'm not familiar with the model of Casio you have, but if you set the metronome beats to 0 on some Casio models, there is no ding or bell on 1.


If you really want to drive yourself crazy, you can set the beats to 1 and it dings every time! :lol: :banghead:

EUREKA!!  Thanks to you Joe, the *DING* is no more :banana: 

Well at least as soon as I save this parameter correctly.  In essence, I now get the sound of a classical mechanical wind-me-up metronome.  Which is a milestone compared to what I had to endure from the nagging DING!!! bell. 

Yet, I remain bewildered at the fact that I still cannot create/program such a simple thing.  All the desired sounds are readily available in my AP-650 as it is the case with the PX-350 and the PX-780 (my bad about thinking the «Rhythm Accompaniment» and the « User Rhythms» were also available with the AP-700 as well as other Celviano and Privia boards).  The User Guide makes it ALMOST TOO SIMPLE to achieve.  Or maybe, just maybe, it’s just me?

Out of hard-headedness, I will keep on trying to achieve this and if I do, I will post & share the solution... until then, all help would be greatly appreciated should any savvy owners of the PX-350, PX-780 or AP-650 have an idea how to better interpret (read DECODE) the USER GUIDE to reach this goal.
