Casio WK-7600 Keyboard, 76-Key

An update to Casio's hit WK-7500, the WK-7600 gives you 50 incredibly real drawbar organs, hundreds of fully tweakable sounds, 17-track sequencing and more!
The Casio WK-7600 keyboard's 17-track sequencer, powerful arpeggiator, 820 fully-tweakable tones and impressive drawbar organ simulator say "professional workstation." But the built-in speakers and music stand, battery-operation, under-20-pound weight and rock-bottom price say "portable keyboard." Turns out you can have it both ways, with the Casio WK-7600. Complete with guitar and mic inputs for SD card audio recording, the 76-key WK-7600 is a knockout lightweight workstation for the traveling songwriter/composer -- and it can double as the heart of a home studio for composers of modest means.

Get a closer look at the Casio WK-7600 (and its smaller sibling, the CTK-7200) in this video:


Compose and Arrange for Real -- with the WK-7600's Song Sequencer

Don't let the low price fool you -- this keyboard is a serious composition and arrangement factory. Create demos anywhere with the WK-7600's 17-track Song Sequencer. Use tools like punch in/out, track copy/merge, quantizing, and event editing down to the note level. Besides the main 16 "anything you want" tracks, add the 17th "system" track for any of 260 tweakable auto-accompaniment rhythms, or create your own rhythm (complete with drums and bass) and let it "follow" you around the keyboard as you play a lead part -- automatically transposing to whatever chord you're playing in real time.

Audio Recorder with 1/4" Input for Your Guitar or Mic

Now that you've captured your song idea as a MIDI sequence, it's time to lay down a real read more live guitar solo or vocal take -- because the WK-7600 also records digital audio, when you press the dedicated Audio Record button. In fact, you can record stereo audio to an SD card from nearly any source -- the built-in 1/4-inch microphone input, 1/4-inch instrument input, your live keyboard playing, the Song Sequencer playback, or even the auto-accompaniment tracks. Simple, fast audio recording is a definite plus if you're laying down demos in a hotel room. When you're done recording, connect the WK-7600 to your laptop via USB and use Casio's free Data Manager software to convert your files to standard WAV or MP3 format. Plus, the SD card slot in the WK-7600 is the perfect playback solution if your gigging band wants to use WAV backing tracks on stage.

Killer Drawbar Organ Simulation

If you've had the pleasure of playing a vintage tonewheel organ, you know it can produce a wide range of sounds thanks to drawbars -- the set of nine levers that an organist can slide in or out to adjust the relative volume of specific harmonic components of a sound. The Casio WK-7600 faithfully replicates drawbars with a set of nine sliders when you press the "Drawbar Organ" button. There's even simulated "dirt" and tonewheel crosstalk when you select "vintage" mode, and a handy switch turns on the on-board rotary speaker simulator. Want to record your drawbar organ? The Song Sequencer remembers the moves of the sliders as you play -- or you can "overdub" drawbar moves as you listen to your organ part played back. And just like anything else on the WK-7600, you can record your organ part as stereo audio to the SD card. You'd be hard-pressed to find this kind of authentic drawbar organ simulation in any keyboard of this price!

Sound Impressive: 820 Editable Tones

You're going to need more than a fat drawbar organ to demo your next hit. The WK-7600 packs an impressive 800 tones, including stereo pianos, vintage electric pianos, strings, drums, synths, and acoustic instruments. In true pro-workstation fashion, you can extensively edit filters and envelopes on each of these tones to customize your sonic identity. For live shows, the WK-7600 easily splits and layers tones, and saves all your favorites in 96 registration slots for quick recall. Need some inspiration? Fire up one of 150 types of arpeggiators, or dial in the on-board reverb, chorus, or any of a hundred presets on 46 effects including delays, phasers, flangers, and wah. (After all, the WK-7600 does have a 1/4-inch instrument input for your electric guitar or bass.)

Casio Gets Serious

Just as Casio's Privia digital stage pianos have gained sincere respect with gigging keyboardists, the WK-7600 is poised to shake up the synth workstation market with an instrument that's built from the ground up as a go-anywhere, do-anything arranger synth with a fantastic price-to-performance ratio. The drawbar organ sim is just icing on the cake.

Casio WK-7600 Keyboard, 76-Key

The Casio WK-7600 keyboard comes with 50 specially selected built-in drawbar organ tones. Nine sliders can be used to change harmonic overtone level settings and add percussion and click sounds for real-time sound creation as you play. A rotary speaker simulated using a built-in DSP provides the distinctive acoustic effect of drawbar organ speakers. Parameters can be edited to create original "user drawbar organ tones," 50 of which can be stored in memory for later recall.

Tone Editor

The attack time, release time, cutoff,vibrato, reverb/chorus, DSP and other parameters of a built-in tone can be adjusted and edited. You can save the result as your own unique"user tone" that will be available for instant recall whenever you need it during live performances. A TONEEDITOR button provides instant access to the editing mode.

Multiple Digital Effects

Built-in effects include reverb (10 types), chorus (5 types), and DSP (100 preset DSPs).

By adjusting the parameters of the DSP effect types, you can create original effects and store up to 100 original types in memory for later recall.

Equalizer

Incorporates five selectable frequency characteristics, including "Bright" for a lively sound emphasizing the treble range and "Powerful" with a stress on volume.

Registration

A simple operation saves the current setup, including tone, rhythm, and other settings for instant recall when you need them. * You even can save tones to which effector effects are being applied. Recalling a registration instantly changes the digital keyboard's setup, making this a great tool for live stage performances.

Arpeggiator

With the arpeggiator, you can play various arpeggios and other phrases automatically by simply pressing keys on the keyboard. You can select from 150 different arpeggio types, including playing arpeggios from a fingered chord, guitar phrases, and more.

Song Sequencer

17-track Song Sequencer (16 tracks + 1 system track) acts as a multi-track recorder, so you can use it for real-time recording of your keyboard play. 17 tracks mean that you can perform multi-track recording to layer bass, guitar, piano, and other instruments onto a drum part and build to a final song. Both real-time and step recording are supported.

Completed recordings can be converted to SMF (Standard MIDI File) format and stored to an SD memory card.

32-channel Mixer

Nine sliders, one for each channel, can be used for individual simultaneous adjustment of volume, pan, reverb send, and other parameters. Sound input from an external source via the MIC IN terminal and INST IN terminal can also be adjusted as desired.

Pattern Sequencer

Up to eight tracks (drum, percussion, bass, chord 1 through chord 5) can be edited to create original accompaniment patterns (INTRO, NORMAL, NORMAL FILL-IN, VARIATION, VARIATION FILL-IN). In addition to recording over each individual accompaniment part of an existing rhythm, and event editing function gives you total control over each aspect of recorded data, an Easy Edit function lets you combine accompaniment from multiple built-in rhythms to create original rhythms, and mixer capabilities give you control over the tones, volume levels, reverb, and other parameters of each part.

A full selection of editing tools include event insert, event delete, event copy, quantize, and more. Memory is provided for storage of up to 100 different user rhythms, which can be recalled with the touch of a key.

Audio Recording / MIC IN & INST IN

Normal keyboard play, Auto Accompaniment, Song Sequencer play, INST IN terminal input, MIC IN terminal input and other audio can be recorded to an SD memory card as digital audio data. While playing back a song you created with the Song Sequencer, you can play along with on a guitar or other instrument, or input vocal with a microphone.

Saved audio files can also be transferred to a computer connected via USB for long-term storage. Special Data Manager 6.1 application software, downloadable from the URL shown below, can be used to convert data to WAV format, which can be played back on a computer.
