I have a Casio PX-5S GAS

I gigged with my MP6 last Sunday. I have a good soft case with wheels. My car is big enough to fit it easily. I have been going to а gym regularly for an year. Yet I hated the experience of moving the MP6!

Nord Electro 4 HP could be a solution but is so expensive and cannot layer and split (to my knowledge).

And here comes the Casio PX-5S! Full 88 keyboard with great sounds, layers, splits, effects, etc in a 11kg package. And for $999. Could this be the holy grail of gigging pianos? I have a GAS laugh

Other possibilities at substantially less weight than the MP6 (still with plenty of layer, split, and fx capabilities) would be the Yamaha MOX8 and Korg Krome 88. But Casio will have the advantages of lower price, lighter weight, and less depth for better ergonomics when you want to stack a second board above it. We'll see about the sounds...

p.s. -- forgot what may be, for many, potentially the biggest advantage the PX-5S will have over those other possibilities... a really nice action.

It may be preordered from KraftMUSIC for $999 and that even includes a bundle with headphones, USB drive, etc or soft case:

(Sorry couldn't help myself).

I think the px5 is , apart from the looks, almost perfect. If they would have added aftertouch at perhaps a little extra cost, I think it would have hit the bulls eye for even many more people. Still it's a long wait for April to finally see/ hear the finished product.

The looks?

The feedback from the show was overwhelmingly positive.

I must admit I was initially disappointed by its looks but it kind of grows on me and I like it now, at least on the pictures. It might have something to do with a certain childhood memory I have about the first electronic keyboard I've ever played as a kid and that was a white Casio synth my cousin got as a present. I was so deeply impressed by all the sounds and effects that I may have developed a subconscious association between white color and good feeling laugh

AUGH! Now Kraft is saying April 30. I've chosen this for my boat studio... GAS here too, and the only thing that eases the agony of waiting is the sense that goodies are still being added...

It is a bit too early for Kraft to be saying specifically when in April. I do believe it will be early in the month.

The software has change significantly since the NAMM show. We'll be working on updating all the specs and features on the web and then shooting videos in the coming weeks. Details coming asap.

...looks...

If you are planning to use one on stage it looks much better than black under stage lighting. This in addition to what AnotherScott has mentioned about legibility of controls under stage lighting. It catches all of the drama of theatrical lighting. Here it reflects the colors of a sunset.

We'll apart from the "looks" thingie , the Casio Px is certainly on my list. Looks promising , can't wait for the added specs where all the additions and improvements are listed, that we're developed since NAMM.

Last time about the looks; I fully understand the visibility/ readability reasons for choosing a non black approach. However what makes it most odd to me is the black box approach on the right side. It sort of abruptly breaks the design flow of the instrument. If that could have been the same white as the rest , or another creative color scheme solution, that would do a lot already. But I'll put it to rest.
