How goes it?
I have a problem dealing with the CASIO CDP200R..
HUGE!
I downloaded the manual, but it's futile to follow instructions.
The machine in my experience isn't intuitive..
I'm beyond frustrated trying to record a basic simple thing.. Because of it being so hard to get it to work I settled for just recording 1 stupid track.
(Sorry... I feel like swearing..🙄) But the stupid thing won't even have that, as ON IT'S OWN when I'm recording, it freaking splits the stupid keyboard when it should be just 1 sound! Good lord... Frustration is massive..! Can someone help me to handle that please?
Also, I wanted to record a built in rhythm but following the instructions it says to start playing to record, but that's about the melody, it doesn't say about rhythms first AND melody later.

(a) Start by doing a "factory reset", if the manual tells you how to do that. That should eliminate the "split keyboard" problem.

Some DP's have some voices that are _inherently_ split -- bass guitar in the left hand, piano in the right hand.

. . . Are you using one of those voices?

. . . Are you in some kind of "set" or "performance" which specifies a split keyboard?


(b) There's probably no way to start the recording -- using rhythms -- before you press the first key, which starts the rhythm. That seems strange, but I can imagine the arguments on both sides.

So, do what the manual says -- select the rhythm, set the DP to "Record", and start playing.

Maybe I don't understand what you'd like to do . . .

(c) There is no alternative to reading the manual, as many times as it takes to understand it. The Casio manuals aren't too bad, in my experience. If it makes you feel better, I remember scratching my head a bit, when I got the PX-350, figuring out how the "Record" function worked.

Hi there, inmensly kind of you to respond, I wasn't using the voices you asked, but the split thing went away on its oown..

Idid figure out some of what I wanted to do initially, but now I have the problem that I can't manage the volume among tracks within a song. I've looked in the manual butnothing.. it doesn't seem like a possibility but as designed for beginners as it is I can't believe they left out such a recording basic such as volume mixing.. (?)

I just looked at the manual for that model and I don't see anything that allows you to change the recorded volume when switching between tracks.

You could try changing the master volume control knob when you are doing the recording and see if that makes a difference (I don't think it would but it's worth a try) or your other options are to record each track separately and combine them on your computer using something like Audacity, or just play softer or louder as you need to when you're doing the multi-track recording.
