So, as much as I like reface YC, CP & DX, I'd better buy an electro 5D 61 and a PX-350. It seems to be the best "combo" for almost anything...

There are many possible ways to go, and no single "best."

But if you want that kind of setup, you also might consider the PX5S over the PX350. Not only does it have a lot of better sounds, it's also a more verrsatile MIDI controller. For example, you could use its buttons to call up different sounds on the Nord, or to split/layer its 88 keys between a Casio sound and a Nord sound. But if *all* you want to use it for is to trigger the Nord's piano sound, then yeah, the 350 will do.

Interesting! The DX is kind of like an updated PLG150-DX/DX200, and the CS is kind of like the PLG150AN/AN200. A new take on the PLG150-VL could be very cool.

Can you elaborate a bit on sound differences between PX5S and PX350?

While the PX-350 and PX-5S do have the sample piano sample, they don't have the same "piano sound". The PX-5S has a different effects engine which sonically is a different league. {There} is a 4 band EQ which the PX-350 does not have. The PX-5S can reproduce sympathetic resonance and lid simulation effects which the PX-350 can not. It also has release velocity which changes the legato, staccato response of the sound. So while the starting point is the same, what the PX-5S does with it is different.

You also have far more tools available to customize the sound yourself. And there are additional variations of the piano sound that you can download from the casiomusicforums site (including one that was a significant improvement, for me personally).

The PX350 is pretty bad for EPs, the PX5S is quite good, and again, there are still more variations you can download into it.

It has a pretty capable synth section built into it, which the PX-350 doesn't have at all.

Really, to me, there's no comparison. The PX-5S is a good sounding all-around board, the PX-350 not so much (though I know there are many people here who are perfectly content with it, at least as a piano).

You could also check into the PX-360, which doesn't have the MIDI functionality or sound editing capabilities of the PX5S (among other things), but I believe has many (most?) of its sonic improvements, in terms of its piano and other sampled instruments.

What's above the "CASIO" logo on the back of PX5S? smile

Thanks!

The battery compartment. (The PX5S can run on batteries.)

Regarding these organ-oriented boards like the mini reface YC on bottom and electro 5D on top, what's your opinion about Roland VR-09?
