Jazz+ Posted May 1, 2019 Share Posted May 1, 2019 I have played my S3000 for over 12 hours now using just the piano patches. Mostly stride piano left hand and bebop-ish right hand playing. The real discovery for me has been the very equal clarity across the entire range of the 004 Stage Piano. Its by far my favorite for performance and touch response. The 001 Grand Piano is nice but clunkier in the middle register and takes more velocity to play. Surround 1 produces the greatest clarity. However, my favorite, 004 Stage Piano, is too bright as is, so the S3000 has the big advantage of assigning Brightness to Knob 1. This allowed me to take the edge off and save it to a Register. I can adjust the Brightness Knob on the fly in the future as needed for different rooms. The Reverb is is set to Hall 3 on every Piano in the Casio. So thats obviously too much and Room 2 is just about realistic sounding. That is what Ive assigned to Knob 2 so then it can be adjusted on the fly to taste. The lack of 2 programmable knobs for EQ and Reverb would leave me frustrated with a S-1000 model. Also, Cant get a good clean tone vintage Rhodes on the S 1000 but I sure can on the S 3000. I highly recommend the S3000 over the S1000 model. Getting a clean tone Rhodes and 88800000 organ on Casio S-3000 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
