Just got the PX5 S in store yesterday here in New Zealand. After all the hype I couldn't wait to give it a go. I'm a believer. The Pianos are slightly better to my ears than the PX350 piano sounds which a very good, but the EPs are way better than anything I've ever heard from Casio before. Similarly the Synth and guitar sounds are way better than the standard casio range of sounds and I would say are now competitive to any other top brand on the market.
To fully understand what the PX5 S can do will take a bit of learning but I am very impressed.


Roland RD700NX, Korg SV1 88.

Thank God for the gift of Music

Marknz,
Thanks for giving the PX-5S a try. thumb

We're getting ready for a firmware update which I think should be out in about a week. Along with that we'll be releasing a lot of new sounds including new acoustic pianos, electric pianos, synths and more.

We're getting some great new EP sounds out of it that are far different from what you played already, which just shows how flexible the engine in the PX-5S really is. Here is a quick example:

We're posting new audio demos almost daily.

Again thanks for giving it a listen.

Mike, by 'new sounds', are you saying that the PX-5X is able to load new wave data/samples, or do you actually mean new presets - i.e. the same wave data/samples, but utilised in different ways?

Cheers,
James

Interesting question; I think the latter...

No you can not load new samples in the PX-5S. But the PX-5S is a synthesizer and you can seriously modify and manipulate the sounds to create new custom ones. FWIW - We have added new samples in the upcoming firmware update. smile

Interesting. So even though the user cannot load new samples into the PX-5S, new samples can be loaded in via manufacturer supplied firmware update? That's pretty significant.

Interesting indeed. May I ask you to clarify this point please, Mike?

I wonder how large the samples stored in the firmware can be, and if all of the samples themselves can be replaced (i.e. ram, not rom).

Cheers,
James

Meaning you (as a user) cannot add new samples to the PX5 , but Casio as the developer can indeed add / exchange the underlying sample data. Interesting ! Could that possibly mean that when Casio records a new AP sample set in the future (for a new Privia series) , the current AP sample base could be exchanged by the new version as well ? I mean in theory , cause marketing probably won't allow that to happen, since it will eat away sales of the next generation of Privia series.

I understood the sample-set on the Numa Piano series can be exchanged in the same way by updated versions with a firmware update. That's what they may do for the little Numa Piano they said - adding some of the higher end Numa Concert sound-base.

If Casio goes along the same path the investment in a Privia seems even more worthwhile , since you can update the base sound set when better material is available. To what extend this will happen is of course unclear - upcoming Privia series with enhanced sounds have to be sold as well...Very curious about the upcoming update !

Guys,
Do not read more into this than there is. We're supplementing the existing ROM with some more content in this firmware update. I would not expect more samples to be added.

Point taken, but in theory it seems Casio could , if they wanted to, exchange the ROM sample data , which is a very interesting development and makes the product much more future proof and flexible. Also when a flaw is found in a particular sample or sample group (hello Roland) , these could be replaced by a new version. All very positive news if that is indeed the case . I mean this as a big plus for Casio - so I hope you are not being unpretentious about it if this is indeed possible. No matter to what extend Casio will use it in the end. PX5S is still full of surprises...

As I said, don't read anything more into this than there is. wink

Yes in theory, anything is possible. Is is likely....that is a different story.

There is one more firmware update in the works that I know about after v1.10 and I'm trying to get them to put as much into the PX-5S as I can. At certain point however a line has to be drawn so we can move on to the next product. That doesn't meant that we're going to stop with sound/preset libraries for a very long time but things that are at the sample level, software and architecture level will likely be final.

OK. Clear.

Extra (or user-customizable) touch curves in the PX5 in the requested features list please. If possible. Before development is halted and firmware is final. Thanks :-)

Cheers, J

Thanks Mike.

So "more content" means "new presets", not "new samples". Is this correct?

Apologies for pinning you down like a forum nerd. wink

Looking forward to the updates and the editor!


FYI - a website is being setup for Px5s users
to upload and download programs, sounds,
stage settings, etc. Lots of "grassroots"
support for this board!

To all current PX5 owners who read this forum

How happy are you with your PX5 so far ?! Any pro's / con's you think you might share ? No issues so far ?

It's been around now for a little while so I was wondering how well the board performed considering there has been some time to play an tweak the PX now.

Thanks for the info (any info)

J
