Looking for info about adding sounds and learning what else is possible

Recommended Posts

I bought a Privia PX-360M and haven't used a digital keyboard before. I'd like to find out what else I can do with a MIDI capable keyboard.  For example, can I import more sounds? Can I save them to the PX-360M? What could I do with additional hardware/software? 

 

Can anyone point me towards some easy to understand online information? Thanks!

I can recommend to read manual. You probably will be able to find answers for many questions you have.

PX-360 does not provide capabilities to import additional sounds .

However you can use PX-360 as a MIDI controller with an external sound bank such as Roland Interga 7 or Yamaha Motif Rack XS.

PX has USB MIDI interface which allows you to use it as Input and Output device with DAW(Digital Audio Workstation).

As a staring point you can get Studio One 3. There is a free version of this software. Others normally offer only trials for free.

DAW comes with their own instrument(s).

The additional plugins can be purchased and installed as well.

 

Integration over MIDI is quite flexible. Basically any instrument with MIDI input can be used as a sound bank .

 

Roland Interga 7 or Yamaha Motif Rack XS are kind of flagman-ships .

 

If you are looking for arrangers you can use your PX as one.

External arranges such as Roland BK-7m also can be integrated with Privia.

I'd like to add extra sounds. For example , a tinkling toy keyboard that changes tone with each key press on the PX.

 

Also interested in exploring music notation software. So far haven't worked out an easy way to enter chords/complex timings with Musescore without stopping after almost every note to make manual changes in the app.

 

Apart from those things, it's a case of I don't know what I don't know!
