With 533 comments (as of writing of this post), my article comparing the Casio & Yamaha keyboards is the most popular article on the blog. Here is a tabular comparison of the keyboards illustrating the similarities and differences in the technical details of the keyboards. Lastly, have you tried out the Casio Lighted keyboard ones that are available outside of India. The CTK-7000 is a technically superior keyboard, however the Yamaha PSR I-425 is a better learners and live performers keyboard. I have read your comparison of Casio CTK 5000 and Yamaha PSR i425 and must say that in depth comparison is appreciable. Keeping my budget constraints, can u suggest me which is best for me as an hobbyist, to purchase a used keyboard – either Yamaha PSR 1500 or Yamaha PSR i425 or Casio CTK 7000 ? That said, the PSR 1500 is also likely to be quite old and hence I would like you to check it thoroughly (check the keys, buttons, sliders, knobs and wheels for proper functioning) before you buy it. I am assuming that you intend to use the keyboard to either provide backing rhythm + chord or even entire sequences so that you can play along. The Yamaha E333 is a keyboard even more basic than the CTK-4200 but it does enjoy Yamaha’s excellent rhythms and offers marginally more real-time control of rhythm+chord start stop. I am looking forward to buy a keyboard for my 7yr old daughter who will be starting her keyboard classes from June.
The 49-key keyboard will allow her 2-hand playing practice and the light-weight machine will mean that you will not always have to carry it for her. Happen to come across your comparison chart during my short research on finding out an entry level keyboard. The keyboard does support multi-track composition on the keyboard itself, but if you connect it to the computer, you will find it easier to edit the music on the computer. I am novice in the music field, iam planning to take admission for my daughter(6 years old) as well as for my wife who knows music but not keyboard, but she knows harmonium very well.

Yamaha's DGX500 is the first portable keyboard to use actual piano keys, and it's the flagship in a series of instruments from Yamaha called Portable Grand.


A large, piano-shaped button in the center of the front panel calls up the keyboard's best piano sound. The DGX500 features an extra-high-quality stereo piano sample, general MIDI (GM) compatibility, and a selection of Yamaha's famous XG Lite voices, all of which work in concert to give you remarkably good sound quality. When you want to record your playing, just press the front panel's record button, the track button for the track you want to record on, and start playing. Call up your favorite style of music like Rock, Big Band, Gospel or Country, press a chord or play Single Finger mode, and the DGX500 will follow you through a piece of music, providing all of the drums, bass, piano, guitar, horn and string parts for you.
And finally, no matter what level of playing ability your at, you'll appreciate being able to build combinations of your favorite sounds. This is a well maintained and cared for early 60's Hammond B3 and Leslie 122 from a private household. While the article does discuss the keyboards, technical details are not available in the article.
However if you are looking for good customization of rhythms, measures and tones, you should consider the CTK-7000. Don’t bother with the CTK-810IN (quite dated now), CTK-6000 (less features than CTK-5000) and CTK-42000 (at the lower end of your budget). However, the Yamaha PSR-I425 is compatible with USB Pendrives and can Load+Save your compositions and keyboard settings into it. Both Yamaha and Casio keyboards multiple types of auto-harmonize (including 2 octave function). Rajib, after having gone through your blogs, I was so happy that you have gone very deep into the subject and obviously your ideas about these musical instruments have simply started multiplying like anything as it has reflected in all of your blogs.
The keyboard was released in 2004 as an Arranger keyboard and has terrific real-time control of keyboard features for stage performance. Connect the keyboard to computer using USB and use a MIDI recording software (like Fruity Loops) to record the MIDI performance data. Between the Casio and Yamaha keyboards, the single biggest difference is the realtime performance control and the Yamaha excels in that. Some keyboards in this price range have 16-, 24 -or 28-note polyphony; the DGX500 has a full 32-note polyphony so you can play intricate instrumental arrangements and dense musical passages without "running out" of notes or sounds.
And even though the DGX500 comes with 135 built-in music styles, the disk drive opens up the ability to load even more.


Pull out your favorite music book, select a song from any of the over 200 songs in the database, and the entire keyboard sets itself up. Pressing the "Split" button divides the instrument into two parts, allowing you to have two different sounds on the keyboard at the same time, like piano on the right and bass on the left. It is more expensive but a very capable keyboard and will serve the needs of a musician like you. Attracted by the additional Indian sounds and few other features, ended up ordering a PSR-i425. The advantage of this approach is that your computer receives the notes that you play, rather than the sound. The advantage of this approach is that you can take advantage of the wonderful sounds of the keyboard and record the styles, variations etc.
When you're done, save your song internally or to the keyboard's 3.5-inch floppy disk drive as a standard MIDI file (SMF) to make it compatible with other general MIDI keyboards as well as most computers. Start playing and the keyboard will follow your every chord--with no other buttons to press.
Well, if learning to play music is important to you, the Yamaha Education Suite II, a set of music training functions, makes learning music incredibly easy. With over 600 voices to choose from, the combinations are only limited by your imagination. Please check the USB specifications carefully as most of the older machines only support devices of 2GB max.
You can also download the manual (in PDF format) from the manufacturer’s website and look up the appropriate section in the manual.
One of my key objective is to play some tunes and export it to PC and mix it using an editing suite like Fruity Loops or Acid Pro. You can modify these notes to your hearts content and then use the Yamaha as the MIDI Output device (playback on keyboard) or use Fruity Loops Soft-Synth engine to playback the music using sounds that are not present on the Yamaha. Imagine recording your child's first song onto a disk, placing it in your computer and attaching it to e-mail so friends and family can hear.
