1st rehearsal with Casio Privia PX-310

I played a Casio Privia PX-310 for an extended period today for the first time and found it quite satisfactory. Our band's founder very kindly bought one of these for his practice space so that I would not need to lug my Yamaha P-120 to rehearsals. I played it for three hours and found the action very pleasant. The Casio's piano voices are not perfect, but were fine for rehearsing with a rock band (mainly Grateful Dead covers). I did not like the electric piano and jazz organ patches as much as the P-120's, but did not have a chance to explore all the options without loud musicians playing at the same time. I'd use the Casio as backup on a gig if my P-120 conked out.

That's cool. Do you or anyone know if the PX-310 has the same or different piano sound as the CDP-100? I found the piano in the 100 a bit problematic with certain styles/techniques, esp. in the midrange where the notes sounded blurred together. The action is good though, and is even better when you use a killer piano sound, such as Ivory! :thu:

I don't know if the PX-310 and CDP-100 have the same piano sound. The PX-310 seemed more useful for our rehearsal room because it had more sounds and the standard complement of outputs.

 

I will not be using a virtual piano such as Ivory because I would prefer not to deal with a computer while playing music (having spent every business day for the past 20 years either in front of a computer or in meetings about computers), and also because the piano sound is good enough when it is mixed with electric guitars, bass and drums. I would have no problems with plugging the PX-310 into a hardware module, however.

I was under the impression they used the same 3 layer piano? ??
