Casio MZ-X500 61-Key Workstation

The MZ-X Series is the evolutionary successor to Casio's powerful MZ-2000 Series instruments. It will jump-start your creativity with its authentic sound, intuitive Color Touch Interface, and extensive control. This flagship keyboard will enable musicians around the world to perform, create, and inspire like never before.

Evolutionary Sound Quality

Over 1,100 high-quality Tones are provided, (over 900 on MX-Z300), covering a global variety of instruments. No matter what type of music you want to play, the MZ-X Series delivers.

Acoustic guitars include fret noise, harmonics, string slides and body slaps. Basses have smooth glissando from note to note. Versatile Tones provide these and other nuances, delivering incredible realism.

The Tones can be easily modified to suit your tastes, thanks to the realtime control knobs and sliders. You can also draw on a selection of 20 different effects to fit any occasion.

Virtual Tonewheel Organ

The MZ-X Series faithfully reproduces the timeless sound of a vintage tonewheel organ. The rotary speaker is also simulated in great detail, giving you the complete vocabulary of this revered instrument. The physical sliders give you precise drawbar control, and easy onscreen buttons provide you with essential adjustments.

Easy Production Tools

The MZ-X Series contains a 16-track MIDI recorder with a full suite of mixing and editing features, plus powerful effect processors and USB audio recording. Select an ensemble, record a performance, then connect a mic, add some vocal effects, and record your performance as an upload-ready WAV file.

Authentic Rhythms

The MZ-X Series contain hundreds of flexible and great-sounding Rhythms, representing musical genres from around the world. Latin, Middle Eastern, European, Asian, and other global Rhythms are included, as well as a full spectrum of pop, jazz, rock, dance. These Rhythms have multiple intros, endings, and variations, and use advanced chord detection to deliver complete accompaniment ensembles that react smoothly to the way you play. They are ideal for solo performances, songwriting, or just enjoying a jam session with a band of professional musicians.

Pattern Sequencer

Patterns can be easily created and combined to form your own Rhythms, making the MZ-X Series completely expandable and customizable. If you have a vision for the perfect backing band, you can quickly generate all the performance elements you want, with extensive mixing and editing tools.

Color Touch Interface

The bold, bright 5.3-inch display puts you in the driver's seat, and makes it incredibly easy to explore and navigate the MZ-X Series. You're always just a few touches away from any essential function, and selecting Tones and Rhythms is easier than ever. Enjoy interactive visual tools like mixers, synthesizer functions, effect controls, and more. It can even be used as an X/Y controller for the built-in effects and filters, controlling two parameters with just one touch. Onscreen text is large and easy to read from any angle, no squinting required.

The stylish "cockpit" design of the MZ-X Series is insightfully laid out, with the most important controls just where a player would need them. Along with the display, you'll find your hands naturally gravitating to the newly-designed knobs, sliders, pads, and other performance controls. Bright backlit buttons also keep you informed and in control, so you can focus on what's most important- making music.

Pattern Convert

Not only can the MZ-X Series load and play standard MIDI files, they can import data from an SMF into custom Rhythms. This means that instead of simply playing back a song, you can perform it and make it your own.

Multi-Pads

The MZ-X500 has 16 backlit, velocity sensitive multi-function pads. Initially, you'll find they can add new, creative, and fun elements to your music. As you explore them further, you'll realize they can open up a new dimension to your performance and composition.

Sampling

Quickly and easily record high-quality samples from any source via the line and mic inputs, and assign them to the pads. Create a drum kit with custom percussion sounds, record your vocal harmonies, or create a soundboard of clips to trigger during your performance.

Phrase

The pads can also trigger original musical phrases. You can easily create phrases yourself, or use the many included presets for many different instruments and genres.

Chord

You can also use the pads is to trigger chords, which can drive the MZ-X's accompaniment Rhythms. This can simplify a performance, freeing up your hands to play a two-handed melody, or use controllers.

Each pad is individually and highly customizable. You can combine all of these (and other) functions into your own custom pad layout, triggering samples, phrases, and Tone articulations all from one set of 16 pads.

Speakers

The MZ-X Series' bass-reflex speaker system puts out a staggering 40 watts of power, and sounds rich and clear at any level. A 4-band parametric equalizer is included to help you customize the MZ/X to suit any space, ensuring that you and your MZ-X will always sound your best.

Hex Layer and Synth (MZ-X500)

Casio's Hex Layer technology combines up to six layers in a single Tone, with up to four Hex Layer tones playable at once. This allows for creation of incredibly rich sonic textures, and stunningly realistic acoustic instruments.

The MZ-X500 series also features a Bass Synthesizer with an impressive collection of classic synth waveforms. Combined with the intuitive Color Touch Interface and powerful Hex Layers, you can explore the world of analog-style synthesis.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
