Product Description

Casio's newest portables utilize the high performance Zpi sound source to deliver the most realistic piano, organ, and synth sounds, plus a huge library of built-in tones, rhythms, and DSP settings. These powerful instruments feature an on-board sequencer and a mixer, for unmatched creative possibilities, plus powerful built-in speakers to take your performance to the next level. These keyboards are ideal for home/project studio use, open-mic performance, education/classroom applications, or simply for pure musical enjoyment.

For unlimited possiblities Casio has created a brand new keyboard program where wave files can be downloaded directly onto a keyboard via a PC.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (161 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Remarkably good soundz, best value out there"
Sound: Totally blown away- i've owned quite a few keyboards, and to my amazement the piano sound on this board is the best i've heard, in fact many of the basic soundz are just outstanding. It really helps that the onboard speakers are quite decent and create a wonderful stereo sound just on their own, but plug this guy in and you'll be surprised at what a big sound it has. Tip: there's an overall eq setting that can be saved with the sound- this helps a lot, otherwise it's easy to get too bassy. Feature: The single best features of this keyboard for me: the great sound quality, the xclnt on-board speakers, it's relatively light weight, ability to be battery powered, and relative ease to program. i do wish there were more and better ways to save "registrations" (combination sounds), and that there were tutorials for getting up to speed on all the features Quality: So far so good- have had about 4 months, no problem, bring it 1-2 x's a week to jam sessions. Value: Am still surprised to get this satisfying of a keyboard for this kind of money The Wow Factor: i've been telling a lot of people about this board, 'cause with its surprisingly good and satisfying sound, and with the auto accompaniment feature you can use it to practice your scales and get up to speed with the various programmed rhythms. They obviously used pro musicians to create the backing tracks. Overall: Seeing how good this keyboard is at the under 400 bucks price point has made me want more- basically with this keyboard i give up a lot that more expensive pro boards have, like aftertouch, like a real sequencer, like an assignable foot pedal controller, like higher polyphony (only 32 notes here), more and better fx, better modulation wheel choices, better control means like ribbon controllers, etc. etc. But surprisingly i still absolutely love this board, get more satisfaction than i have from any of the other 8-9 other boards i've had, and would only trade up if the board it replaced had such great sounds and (hopefully) built-in speakers. i've felt self-conscious going into the home enthusiast range of boards, but i figured out some time ago that i don't want to be a programmer, and so many of the synths out there require waaay too much patience and left brain skills. and if you've never played a keyboard that has built-in speakers you might be in for a surprise- esp. the bass vibrates the whole board, so you get that tactile, and the speakers are right in your face, so even if you're getting your main sound from external speakers, the on-board speakers function as a set of built-in monitors. all i'm waitin' for now is for the manufacturers to get the idea of the portable party board: having a keyboard like this that accepted external sound sources and had a small on-board mixer would mean you could show up anywhere, even the beach, and play/sing along to songs on your ipod

"A love/hate relationship of honesty and lies"
Sound: To be honest, i love this keyboard because it has done me proud for a good few years but when you've known someone (or something) for long enough you should be able to be honest about their qualities and pitfalls. The sounds are ok if you use the external speakers but when you gig with it u can't really get a "pro" sound because, let's face it, it's not a pro piece of kit, nor is it meant to be. The organ is cool though and electric piano is fine..but piano (and every other sound) is revealed for what it is when u put it through a PA (but i still love you WK-3500!) Feature: Great mini drawbar things for the organ setting. Simple preset banks that are easy to use with no brain power needed. I wish that there were no cheesy/classic casio rhythm section bits purely for the fact that the start/stop button is easily pressed when u get carried away which is both hilarious and hideous depending on where you are. (Or just move that button away from my left hand) Ease of Use: Seriously easy and there are plenty of effects and a sensitive enough EQ to tweak the 3 or 4 sounds you will eventually end up using for the rest of time. Quality: Well made..i have gigged this keyboard extensively and it has never broke down (touch futuristic silver plastic). Fairly light too. Value: Yeah good value. Considering that for twice the price you usually get a similar beast wrapped up in a different skin. Especially in the Casio range. 500/600 and your newer model casio and it will still mask its mediocre piano samples with tonnes of effects, so at least your not expecting miracles with this keyboard. does what it says on the tin. Manufacturer Support: Never needed any support cause it always works. The Wow Factor: I mean, if you wore a shiney silver suit with a neon-blue tie you wouldn't exactly be sensible but you would surely stand-out. Overall: If you are realistic about the limits of this keyboard then you won't be disappointed. But if you want to have a multi-tasking, seriously brilliant, professional sounding thing then save up your pocket-money for another few months and invest in a different piece of kit.
