A Wide World Of Sound

The Casio CTK-4000 61-key portable keyboard is crammed with great sounds and music-making features to keep your playing sounding fresh. The Casio CTK-4000 includes 570 sounds, 180 rhythms, and 152 songs/lessons. Plus, the Casio CTK-4000's new sampling function makes it more fun than play with than ever. Pick a sound - up to 10 seconds - on your portable audio device, then play the sound on your Casio CTK-4000 as you press piano keys to spice up your playing.

Education Suite

The Casio CTK-4000 is great for beginners for two reasons. First, it's afforadable. Second, the built-in Step-Up lessons, facilitated by the CTK-4000's graphic screen, make learning both easy and fun.

Finally, you can connect to your computer with the Casio CTK-4000's USB port.

570 AHL Tones

The high-quality 570 AHL tones create clear and dynamic sounds, which unfold in all sounds and rhythms found in classical piano pieces, as well as many other genres.

48-note polyphony

Sound diversity at its best: the CTK-4000 can play up to 48 voices at the same time, turning interpretation of a wide range of musical pieces into a pure pleasure.

61 Dynamic Touch Keys

The 61 'piano look' keys give the keyboard a sophisticated, elegant appearance and provide the ideal scope for musical inspiration.

Step-Up Learning System

The improved step-up learning system from CASIO is based on the principal "learning by playing": as in traditional piano lessons, the practice piece is split up into individual bar sections and learnt step-by-step. The small learning units guarantee motivation and learning success.

Step 1: Listen.
Step 2: See and repeat with visual support.
Step 3: Remember and play without help.

When the "Auto" mode is switched on, a set practice goal must be reached before the next bar section is displayed. With the "Next" mode you can set your own learning speed.

180 Rhythms

180 rhythms provide you with a colourful overview of the world of music.

Music Challenge

This practice is fun and exercises your mind too: Music Challenge is a play function where the player has to hit the keys as quickly as possible. The musicians play via the large LC display.

Sampling Function

A feature with fun factor: the simple sampling of sounds via an external sound source such as MP3 and CD players (via Audio-in) or microphone (via Mic-in) offers interesting effects and amusing compositions. Whether a bar of your favourite musical piece, loops or drum sounds, human voices or noises of any kind -- the recorded samples (up to 10 seconds) can be played via the keyboard and effects added as desired.

USB Plug & Play

The tried-and-tested interface connects your keyboard quickly and easily to the computer. No software installation from a CD-ROM required thanks to Plug & Play and the USB driver is compatible with both Mac and Windows (from Mac OSX 10.03 and Windows XP/Vista).

Audio Input

Play or sing along -- a solution for the future: connect a CD or MP3 player to the Audio input of your CTK-4000. Your favourite tunes are played via the loudspeakers of the keyboard in "half playback" -- you can play along for the keyboard part. A good alternative to MIDI playback, particularly if you don't want to edit the song.

Play Quietly
Peaceful enjoyment: the CTK-4000 comes equipped with a headphone connection.

The system features two loudspeakers which produce an impressive and balanced sound.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (19 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Bring home the holiday season!"
Sound: The CTK-4000 comes pre-loaded with 570 tones. Since the keyboard is GM compatible, the base tones are 127 and the rest of the tones are variations of the 128 tones. While some of the tones are very similar to each other (with only minor variations in chorus/phase), others are dramatically different. The product also comes with 180 styles to play along. Users can sample their own tones and styles and store on the keyboard (memory requires batteries). The tones and styles are very sweet sounding and melodic. They also seemed to be multi-sampled across the keyboard and at different pressure levels. Pressing the keys faster distincly produces a clangy piano sound, not just a louder piano sound. The styles can be manipulated to individually switch off parts. For ex: users can switch off the chords/harmony parts of style and only opt for drums and bass. Feature: The CTK2000 is a basic keyboard with no frills. The CTK3000 is step up from 2000 with more sounds and pitch-bend. The CTK4000 features 48 note polyphony, even more sounds, an arpeggiator, but no pitch-bend. The CTK5000 predictably is a step up from the CTK4000 with a pitch=bend included. A missing adaptor is a gotcha but easily remedied buy purchasing any 9VDC 1Amp adaptor from the market. For some reason, the portamento effect seems to have fallen out of favor and the Casio keyboards no longer feature it. The preset-bank feature is useful to store keyboard setup combination but is marred by the fact that the keyboard does not feature non-volatile memory. I love the arpeggiator feature and music styles feature of the keyboard. The arpeggiator features quite a few combinations - octave up/down/both/random,note lengths etc. The preset styles are neat. Choose a rhythm style. Keep the style button pressed for 2 seconds - the recommended instrument and style tempo are set automatically. The music style feature lets you automatically select the style and tone too. Choose #61 (careless whispers) and the rhythm and tone are set automatically to 16-beat1 and Sax. The keyboard features USB connection but no MIDI in/out/pass-through. Typical Casio; won't give you best of both the worlds. The sampling feature is of not much use since it doesn't come with a sample editor. If you sample a tone or style, there is no way for you to customize the start-stop of the sample or any other manipulation. The keyboard features touch-sensitivity (2 levels) but lacks after-touch (not expected at this price point too). Due to lack of the hammer-action, don't expect to play a sequence of 32nd notes on this keyboard, even 16th notes will be tough. 8th notes though can be accomplished easily by first-timers. Loads of interesting functions like transpose, arpeggiator-hold, reverb/chorus levels are hidden away behind a small button titled functions. A sustain controller can be attached but not a breath controller. Ease of Use: The keyboard is quite easy to use. Buttons are neatly labeled. Accessing basic functions is a no-brainer. Advanced functions require reading the manual and a few experiments on the keyboard. The 2-second press for presets functions makes it very easy to quickly setup the keyboard for optimal playback. Since this keyboard is squarely targeted for the family home rather than the stage, this feature is much appreciated. Most functions are selected through a number pad. A jog-wheel to select parameters would have been nice. Quality: Very plasticky and featuring a passe silver finish, I was tempted to buy the CTK300 or the CTK5000 (black). But what made me buy the CTK4000 was the fact that feature-wise, this is a superior product when compared to the CTK3000 and the CTK5000 was priced beyond the budget restriction I had set for myself. The keyboard is surprisingly light though and will definitely save my back as I go carting around town to friend's or trainer's place. The keyboard keys are nice and long but not springy enough for virtuoso pianist. Then again, no virtuoso will be caught dead using a Casio learner's keyboard. So the point is moot. Value: Compared to Yamaha (the other manufacturer of home keyboards), this keyboard is definitely a better deal because of the higher number of tones, polyphony, and customization features. The nearest Yamaha still has fewer features than this and costs 40% more. Manufacturer Support: The keyboard came with 3 years warranty, so be sure to get it stamped by the dealer and preserve the bills of purchase. Roll them and put them in the battery compartment if you are the type that loses papers. I used to own a Casio PT-20, a SA-20, a MA-120 and never had to revert to the manufacturer. So here's keeping my fingers crossed that Casio quality control is still the same as it used to be. The manual mentions downloadable software on Casio's site. The s/w can be used to save the keyboard settings, user tones and styles and quickly load them back on the keyboard. I however could not find any reference to software on Casio's site. The Wow Factor: Sex appeal - Zero. But should you get it? YES. The keyboard is power-packed for entertainment and in the end that's what matters. Overall: While this is a keeper, I may want to acquire a small MIDI controller purely for functions such as pitch-bend or a few control knobs.
Style of Music: Still learning the ropes, hope play pop.

Thank you. Your vote has been counted. Could you briefly tell us why the review was or was not helpful?

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great keyboard, with a few flaws."
Sound: A myriad of sounds and rhythms. Great variety. Love the touch sensitive keys. Feature: I Purchased a CTK 4000 because of the ability to store registrations. However, I wasn't aware that in order to keep the registrations, one needs to keep the keyboard plugged in or you need to have 6 D cell batteries stored in the keyboard. Casio should address this and have a small cmos battery to hold registrations. The other thing I find odd is that the Accompaniment is set at around 120 at default, louder than the melody. Easily adjusted but odd. Ease of Use: I have a WK 3000 at home and the 3000 is better but once you learn the functions, no problems. Quality: Keys are a little plasticky and can be noisy when played but otherwise it's fine. Value: Definitely. Very little money for all of it's features. I purchased it for use in a camper. Size is small, perfect for what I am using it for. Manufacturer Support: Contacted them about the registrations and had an answer very quickly through email. Overall: Hopefully, a long time. Have yet to interface with computer.
