CP4 vs CP5

Unread post by paulseig » Fri Dec 15, 2017 8:23 pm

Has anyone had both the CP5 and the newer CP4 ? I'd like to know , does the New CFX Voice in the CP4, make it worth buying?? Is it that much nicer then the CFIIIs in the CP5. Thanks, Paul

Hi Paul. Apologies for the late response.

The CFX in the CP4 does sound rather wonderful. Do you already own the CP5 or were you just looking for some advice for comparison?

One of the main problems is as I am sure you know, asking people about sounds is a bit of a minefield because I may think something sounds great and you might think it's rubbish. That doesn't mean either of us is right or wrong just we hear things slightly differently and prefer one type of sound over another.

I think the CFX sounds superb and a lot of that is down to the mix of samples with modelling...I'm a big fan of modelled sounds over samples :) Plus of course there are many variations within the CP4 so it's a versatile keyboard.

I can only say what I would do personally and I would absolutely purchase the CP4 rather than the CP5.
