How does the 350 fit in with all of that? Seems same spec as the 150 in terms of polyphony and other attributes.


Lester,

The 350 is much different from the other PX models. This Casio DP comparison page should give you all you need: http://www.casio-intl.com/asia-mea/en/emi/compare/piano/

Dan.

Useful link, thanks! I was dismissing the 150 in favor of the 350 which I perceived to be much better, but I don't need all those tones, drum kit etc, just a piano will do fine. Only thing the 150 lacks is MIDI in/out. But I think I could live without that!

Larry,

All of them have USB MIDI. Unless you need to hook up legacy devices that only support MIDI connectors, they are not necessary IMO. Other than the usual hassles with any MIDI interface, I've never had an issue with USB MIDI.

My new MP11 should be here next Monday. It has MIDI IN/Out, but I doubt that I'll ever use it in favor of USB MIDI.

Regards,

Dan.

It's not just "legacy" devices. You can't hook up two completly new devices where one or more only has USB MIDI. You can only do it via a computer using certain software. If all you want to do is attach the device to a computer, USB MIDI will suffice, but that's only a fraction of MIDI's usefulness.

Yes, and in addition to that, if you use the line in (for instance for software piano) you can have noise with UBS midi plugged in.

Congrats, Dan! Let us know when it comes in and what you think! I'm still loving mine laugh

You would think for how long MIDI has been around that they would be able to use all the same compatibility on USB. Heck, it should be wireless MIDI by now. wink

It's coming albeit via Bluetooth. There are some commercial midi wireless products, but I have no experience with them.

Morodiene,

Thanks. It should be here tomorrow. Unfortunately the slider needed for installation on a sliding shelf probably won't be here until late next week, so I won't be able to hook it up to my music workstation. That said, hooking it up my Rokit 5's and playing on the family room table should be good enough for a quick review.

Regards,

Dan.
