PX-3 pro....or no?

Recommended Posts

I picked one of these up sight-unseen after hearing the great piano sounds (youtube) and good things about the keyboard. All true. very nice.

 

But... Why does it program like it's from 1985? With it's tiny screen and odd menu system? I've had other Casios that were more intuitive- a decade ago.

 

So I go online to see if there are any presets or 'registrations' and there are a ton for the 5s, yet none for the lowly 3. 

 

I tried to load some of the files for PX-5s, but no dice. Hacks? Firmware?

 

Should I keep the redheaded step-child , or trade-up to the Big-Boy 5s for the active community?

 

In 2011 Casio elevated their popular Privia piano line to pro status with the PX-3, an 88-note, weighted keyboard stage piano and controller.

Hi and welcome to the forums... The PX-3 is a fine instrument. Only you can say if you should upgrade.,,,,, but the PX-5S offers a lot of bang for the buck. No regrets here. Aww, what the heck.. go get a PX-5S. You deserve it!

Yea..The PX5s is a way different beast from the PX3s outside of the basic sounds.  Just one example:  Registrations are now called stage settings.  A stage setting contains more than just a setup.  A stage setting on the PX5 can actually hold custom user tones as well as arpeggio patterns along with every other setting the PX5 has.  So,  no more losing a tone that goes with a registration!  Yay!!
