Too synthy feeling, not substantial enough. It's not my thing at all.

Looks like both new offerings have the same "powerful stereo speaker system" installed. 16 watts isn't exactly ear shattering, lol.

I mean everywhere I went the noise was so insane. I've never heard it so bad. Especially at the Marriott.

I've never been but to truly hear these keyboards, Sweetwater Gearfest is the place to go, not NAMM.

Heck even Guitar Center sounds like Studio A at Capitol compared to NAMM. rolleyes

The CDP-S350 is a AiX variant.


That's good to know, since the CDP-S350 is the one that interests me. smile

Apparently Casio have confirmed that USB Audio in the PX-S3000 is for recording audio to a USB stick only, so no USB Audio to a computer DAW.


Where did they confirm that?

@ Dave Ferris:
Thanks, synthy action should be fine for e-pianos. Iím thinking of getting a CP73 as well as the PX-S1000.

All the new models, or just the two new Privias? Because Mike Martin said that the new CDPs use that same action, but have different piano sound engines, both from the Privia and from each other.

The PX-S3000 has 96 registrations.

Just to clarify: when you say "sustain," do you mean the rate at which the tone decays? One thing about the last generation of Privias that drew criticism from a lot of people (including me) was that the piano tones decayed in volume too quickly. Would you say that issue has been addressed?

Yes, they do. The timbre/tone is nice on the patches. But the decay is short. As we all know this is because of the length of sample, the storage for them on the instrument and the way the sustain and decay have been programmed - typically using looping to make up for shorter samples. Cost of storage is dropping - Kurzweil, Korg, and Yamaha are offering bigger piano libraries on their high end and mid level boards now. Iím sure Casio will do the same. PX-5S successor. Canít wait to see what theyíve improved.

If itís true that I cannot play my iPad and iPhone sound engines using USB into the sound system of the PX-S3000, then itís a deal breaker. Too bad. It was so close.

Why not audio out of the i-device into audio-in of the PX? Yes, one more cable to run, but dealbreaker? (Yes, better if you have an earlier i-device with a headphone out, or an interface that has an audio out.)

Finally a video with a glimpse of single note blowing without pedal, for a brief moment at 1:05 (nice sounding) ... Still haven't heard a clean Fender Rhodes sound in any video...my guess is they don't have one.

The Casio PX-S3000 won Best in Show, and our own Mike Martin got to play it for this largest audience ever this morning. Go Mike! Go Casio!

It didn't sound that good when I was playing it. Probably due to medium quality phones and background noise level. That sounds at least as good, if not better, then the new Yamaha to me. It has a less processed, digital sound. They're going to sell a ton of these !

Demo #2 from Max. Me likey. thu

Yes, those Max Tampia demos sound great, and so much better than the earlier demos I'd seen of the CDP-S100, glad to hear the difference in the sound engines.

Is "note blowing" with regards to piano some new hipster language?

In my 46 years of playing I have never, ever heard that term as it relates to the piano.

It's Jazz-speak. When horn players improvise, it's known as "blowing" or "blowing over the (Chord) changes".

It also relates to any instrument improvising in the Jazz context - piano, organ, guitar, vibes, bass , drums playing 4s or 8s or an extended solo, heck even accordion. Even vocalists when they scat (please don't wink ) it's considered blowing.

I hear it now being used in funk and RnB circles as well.

Cool. Yeah, I have always heard it with al the things you mentioned above, especially when I played trumpet. I just never heard it in the piano context.

Sounds odd to me...oh well I don't play jazz smile

There is a Kraft Music Youtube offering with Rich Formidoni where he demonstrates a Rhodes Sound without phaser etc. that sounds relatively decent.

It seems that the PXS 1000 offers quite a lot. It's good to hear that there are some favorable reports.

Does this have ( at least ) USB midi out ?

Man! This is such a great price . . . I'm really eager to give this a try (if only we had real retail keyboard shops in my area); I've been hoping to get out and try a P-515 and an ES8 (for home use only), but at ~1/2 the price of the Yamaha, and well under 1/2 the price of the Kawai, I feel like I should wait to try the PX-S3000.

I'm curious if anyone has any thoughts/experience with rear-mounted vs. top mounted speaker systems? I'm looking for something that's going to go up against a wall (practically, a few inches from the wall).

Do rear speakers like this turn "muddy" or just "warm" in that context?

Also, are the existing CS67 Stand and SP33 pedal compatible here (mostly, I'm interested in a stand-mounted pedal option)?

So what is the extra USB port in the S3000 for?
Connect an external midi controller?
