Check out the Dexibell Combo J7 and the Classico L3
The issue is tonewheel (Hammond) organ sounds. The Classico does not have them either.

Re: A NEW Era for Portable Pianos by CASIO

I had a chat with one of the Casio specialists about the PX-S1000/S3000 recently and he said AiX is incredible, but it can’t do as many wave elements per tone as AiR This would go with my theory that AiX could be a generally less capable, budget version of the technology developed for AiR, for lowe...

Re: Montage8 vs Kronos 88 - The Decision

Piano is the hardest thing to get sounding good. For something with moderate price and size for home/studio use, I'd look at JBL 305P MkII.

Re: NAMM 2019 Yamaha's New CP73 and CP88 Stage Pianos

It was actually the CP73 I was interested in - so weighted keys don't enter into the equation. CP73 has weighted (hammer) action. It's not the same one as in the CP88, but it's still hammer action. There is no un/semi-weighted or synth/organ action version of the CP. The closest things might be the...

Re: Question on using parts 9-16 in a performance

"performance mode...switching from one to another" -- That's actually the place Yamaha specifically enabled SSS for. It works there, as long as the Performances have the SSS emblem, meaning ...

.............and it helps having smooth sound transition to rapidly switch sounds seamlessly (and a shit load of other sound sources on stage to boot).
Pity it doesn't work on all modes :evil:
What "mode" does it not work in?

Re: NAMM 2019 Yamaha's New CP73 and CP88 Stage Pianos

I would have been surprised if the CP organs were any better than Montage/MODX. If they sound like rompler implementations, it's because they are rompler implementations. I'd say they are above average for rompler organs, but there is no separate organ engine of the type you would need to do organs ...

Re: Question on using parts 9-16 in a performance

The easiest way to do what you want would probably be to create 16 Performances and place them in the same Live Set (so you'd have one screen with selections for bass+piano, bass+rhodes, bass+strings, bass+organ, bass+synthlead, etc.) Seamless sound switching makes that work well. The only caveat is...

Re: Issues changing from one sound to another on MOXF8

1) If I am playing a patch and holding a chord (or using sustain pedal to hold a chord) I want to be able to change to a different patch without the 1st patch sound going away until I lift my hand (or foot off sustain). These would allow much smoother transitions rather than having to stop playing ...

Re: Question on using parts 9-16 in a performance

he mentions that it contains his 'twelve favorite "go-to" sounds'. From what I understand, we can only play parts 1 to 8 using the local keybed. How is he planning on using parts 9 to12? From the local keybed, you can only play parts 1 to 8 simultaneously . If you only want to play one sound at a t...

Re: (VERY URGENT) Don't know which keyboard to buy...

Another factor in comparing is how much you're relying on the internal speakers vs. external amplification. At least on paper, the Havian seems to have much beefier speakers. So one might end up thinking, for example, the Havian piano is better than the Casio piano when both are played through their...

Re: (VERY URGENT) Don't know which keyboard to buy...

Besides being subjective, the answer can also vary depending on which sounds you're comparing. It could easily be, for example, that you like the piano better on one and the organ better on the other. That said, just from having looked at the manual, the Havian is more flexible in mixing-and-matchin...

Re: MODX7 keys

compared to my old Korg M3-61 (amazing and fairly quiet semi-weighted keyboard) Keep in mind this is a budget keyboard. Korg has high end actions in their high end boards... currently Kronos, and before that, the same action in the M3. Their lower end workstations (Krome/Kross, and before that, M50...

Re: A NEW Era for Portable Pianos by CASIO

I think with the AiX they have dropped all the string resonance effects and replaced them with 'breathy ambience'. There's something they're doing different with the post generation signal processing is my guess. My suspicion, based also upon the naming, both containing the "Ai" prefix, is that it'...

Re: A NEW Era for Portable Pianos by CASIO

You seem to be assuming that the chip for AiX is more capable than the chip for AiR, and I think we just don't know that. AiX could be a less capable platform than AiR. AiX in the CTX line supplanted AHL in the CTK line, so we know it's designed to be an improvement on that, but what evidence do we...
