The sound of the keyboard itself is fine, but I'm mainly interested in using it as a midi-controller keyboard. If you use a good set of samples, that is, actual sounds that have been recorded from instruments and can be manipulated to whatever pitch, loudness, or length is needed, then your finished midi rendering will sound great and very realistic.
Then I click on the track I just imported to open the soundfont properties, and open up this beautiful piano soundfont, which I found after a few hours of thorough Google-searching. UPDATE: I don't often record in midi format anymore, as I just send the line-out jack from my Casio Privia PX-330 into the microphone jack in my laptop. Casio CTK-3200 Portable KeyboardThe Casio CTK-3200 is the ideal start for ambitious music fans: With its 61 touch-sensitive keys, 150 rhythms, 110 songs, sampling function and pitch bend wheel, it brings out the joy of playing a keyboard. My primary purpose was to amuse myself hammering out the first few bars of popular tunes, possibly connect the keyboard to a computer and tinker around with the masses of music making software that is available; again for amusement. As a kid I have owned a Casio PT-20, a Casio SA-20 , a Casio MA-120 and tinkered around with waves of mini-keyboards from Casio, Roland & Yamaha keyboards. Resigning myself to purchasing a Yamaha, I started scouring the Indian market and was disheartened at the price tags the Yamaha’s sported. Based on the fact that I could never figure out the pitch wheel (even today, I draw the pitch curves in MIDI recording software) and would probably limit myself to Piano style playing, I chose to go for the budget friendly CTK-4000. Auto-Harmonize function : 12 types, adds additional notes to your playback, active only if auto-accompaniments are active. 305 Music Presets : Based on popular songs, the tone(s), rhythms, tempo and other settings are available as presets on the keyboard. One-Touch Rhythm Presets : Upon selection of a rhythm, activate Rhythm preset to automatically select the suitable tempo and tone.
Full Range Chord : In this mode the keyboard recognizes and plays the chords if any 3 keys are pressed anywhere on the keyboard.
This keyboard is not without it’s faults, some of them quite glaring while others are negligible.
Ant sensitivity : The rubber used in the keyboard seems to be a delicacy for Indian red-ants and it was only by chance that I discovered this in time and saved my keyboard from being devoured by the critters. Power adapter is not supplied : Requires 9V power adapter which Casio makes you buy for an additional Rs. Fragility : The keyboard is entirely made up of plastic, hence will develop cracks if you drop it. Please note that, the MIDI editor I used did not send patch change events, until I embedded patch change events in the MIDI tracks. I have founded over internet a Casio WK-110 piano demo song (it uses o HL Source sound system – a little older than the AHL Source system). Regarding build quality, the build quality across the new CTK series seems to be identical.
Even at 11K, you can only buy an entry level Yamaha, so I guess we can eliminate that as a brand. The CTK-5000 has a SD Card option, but it only save song data in a proprietary format and cannot be edited on the PC. I hope you realize that the CTK Series is an entry level keyboard and since it doesn’t feature graded-hammer-action-keys, you cannot use it to play concert-type piano. I suggest that you go in for the CTK-4000 since it will easily fit in your budget and leave you enough money to buy an adaptor, soft-case and stand.
Rajeev pls tel me which is the best keyboard beetween ctk 810in and ctk 5000 pls compare it. I suggest that you visit the nearest Reliance Digital or Tata Croma store to compare these products yourself and determine which is right for you. The CTK-810IN is a dated model that will be phased out by Casio in favor of the CTK-xxxx series.
I have checked out the sounds in 810IN and found them to be quite good, hence a good bundle overall.
Tata Croma is a good store, though you will find local stores offering the keyboards at a lower price. Hi Rajib, i learned that CTK-4000 & LK-220 both have 48 note polyphony & AHL sound, but found that they sound differently, the CTK-4000 sounds more like real piano but why? Congrats on asking this really smart question and actually noticing the issue in real world. Sound samples on a keyboard are stored in a ROM chip and these sounds are processed in real-time, depending on the key you press.

Advanced keyboards store multiple notes per instrument (for ex: instead of just 1 note, 1 note for each octave or 8 notes on an 8 octave keyboard). Thus if the ROM used in CTK-4000 has more samples and cleaner samples, then it will sound way better than the LK-200, though technically their specs maybe similar. I am told by Casio that the transfer of midi files from the net is a mere drag and drop from the computer to the keyboard. I am having 2 models in mind, CTK4000 and Yamaha PSR-E413 both hovering around the same pricing. However, the Casio keyboards connect to any computer (Windows, Mac, Linux) over USB and using any software capable of sending MIDI notes to the keyboard (for ex: Winamp on Windows), you can play MIDI files on the computer and sound will come from the Casio.
It’s a similar story with the Yamaha PSR E-413 with the exception that the Yamaha keyboards come with software that allow download of MIDI tracks from the Internet and uploading them to the keyboard for playback. Keyboard build quality wise, I found that both Casio and Yamaha feature similar build quality. If your set of samples is basic and consists of mostly synthesized (generated by a computer instead of recorded from real instruments) sounds, it won't sound nearly as realistic.
I record midi to my computer using a free program called MidiSwing, but only because I can't figure out how to get the next program I'm going to mention to recognize my keyboard. The samples on my new keyboard are already so amazing that I don't feel the need to supplement them with soundfonts.
But I felt that the asking price for the equipment was a tad higher than my commitment to learn playing the keyboard systematically. Needless to say, the keyboards from Casio proved to be completely useless (Brilliant PT-20 but micro-keys are impossible to play by anyone who has attained puberty, the SA-20 produces an annoying typewriter-click sound every-time you press a button on the control panel & the MA-120 has sounds that are completely unnatural). That said, the CTK-5000 is an excellent deal over comparable Yamaha models which cost almost twice as much. Please note velocity sensitivity is the speed with which you hit the keys, not the pressure with which you hit the keys. Very¬† useful if you are moving from Trance (140 bpm) to Slow Jazz (80 bpm) and don’t feel like hammering the tempo button 60 times or pressing multiple keys to change the tone from Synth to Sax.
While song data can be exported as MIDI data to the computer, sample have to be re-recored on the PC to recreate the tones in the absence of the keyboard. By carefully adjust the output volume and record volumes on the keyboard and soundcard, I was able to achieve distortion free stereo recordings. I have a 21 MB Steinberg Stereo Piano sound that outclasses piano sounds on most keyboards (below $1000). The key tactile response is slow and not suitable for playing 32nd notes; you can barely manage 16th notes. The CTK-5000 is about 12.5K (max), so if you stretch your budget a little, maybe you can buy that. That said, the CTK series delivers lot more value that the Yamaha’s at the same price point. But as you progress more and start learning about playback styles, dotted notes, damping and sustain, the feel & sound of a real piano become important.
But if you aiming at western classical music, then it is better to buy a digital piano rather than a portable keyboard. These products are available at Tata Croma and can be tested side by side there (as I tested briefly).
However, the CTK-810IN features a Pitch-Bend wheel whereas the slightly lower priced CTK-4000 does not have it. In the end, warranty is directly handled by Casio as long as you have a Casio warranty card (has a hologram sticker on it). This reduces the artifacts that are introduced in sound, when it is interpolated over a wide range. While these two models are identical in Octaves, Sounds, Processors; the CTK-3000 sound lacks the depth of the CTK-4000 sounds. Only the CTK-5000 has an SD Card reader on which you can copy MIDI files from the computer and play on the keyboard. The Yamaha keyboards have slightly better keys (more springy) and are generally considered more reliable.
I didn't care about weighted keys (to make them feel like acoustic piano keys when pressed) or about a full set of 88 keys (7 octaves), because I never use the highest and lowest octaves anyway.
This basically means I use a USB cable to send a set of instructions (kind of like sheet music) to my computer, telling it when to play what notes, how loud or soft, how long, etc.

Soundfonts give us many ways to listen to the same underlying information, the midi performance data. The method described in this article still works great though if you want to improve a cheaper keyboard's piano samples! Your favourite tunes are played over the keyboard speakers in "half playback" so you can play along with the keyboard part. The SA-20 annoyed the hell out of folks at my school when I connected it up to the PA system at a school function and proceeded to emit loud 1930’s typewriter sounds in my efforts at selecting the tone and setting the volume level.
It seemed that Yamaha was the only company manufacturing usable musical instruments for amateurs. Road, Secunderabad) and spotted the Casio CTK-810IN which I had spotted at a few malls (Rs. Very useful for Harmonium players of India who typically play melody using chorded formation. I opened mine), heavy-handed users have reported that some of the physical keys started squeaking or gone out of alignment on the keyboard.
If I need that sound, I use the USB-MIDI out from the Casio into a MIDI recorder and use the Steinberg sound-font.
It features the exact sound quality of the CTK series, 6 octaves, sustain pedal (included for free in promotion) and weighted keys.
Not only this has the advantage of strength & light-weight, also plastics can be molded and painted much more easily.
Functionally, the CTK-5000 is a culmination of the features found in the CTK-x000 series and features tons of sounds, styles & arranging features. Depending on which key you press, how long you press and how fast you press, the sound processing chip will interpolate (mathematically modify) the middle-C tone to sound like the key you pressed (for ex C of 8th octave). Advanced keyboards also store each note at multiple velocity levels, thus requiring even lesser interpolation and generating cleaner sound. Some keyboards allow you to load custom sound samples, where each tone (for ex: Piano) may weigh in at 2+ GB!
This is a versatile format that is pretty much only limited by the set of samples that are used to render the final sound file. The Casio CTK-3200 is equipped with a fully developed learning system for effective keyboard training: The practice piece is split up into individual sections of several bars, in the same way as in traditional instrument lessons, and is then learnt section-by-section. The CTK-4000 doesnot feature a Pitch wheel but has much improved sound (AHL) and arpeggiator.
Please note that this keyboard does not feature Hammer Action and is not intended for playback in Fortissimo style. The Casio also features numerous other Pianos (conventional, electric) and when the sounds are layered, the effect is truly very wonderful. With the help of the sampling function, you can also record noises and voices directly via the audio input and play them with the voice pads.
These cost considerably less in USA but by virtue of being large and unwieldy electronic equipment, I could not ask my brother to carry-in one for me on his next visit. If you are the type who destroys a TVSE Gold keyboard in 3 months, then stay away from this keyboard.
That said, I also love western classical symphonies… Feature wise the CTK 4000 looks rich and varied and newer while the selection of instruments looks better on 810 IN.
The newly added CTK-2100 adds sampling function to CTK-2000, while the new WK-210 is essentially a 76 key version of the CTK-4000. I was planning for CTK 2000 initially until I ran into some reviews on the web and then into your blog and then expanded my budget to around 10K.
He mentioned the newly launched CTK series which were not yet available widely in the country.
All models featured 5 octaves and General MIDI (GM) compatibility, USB MIDI Connectivity and no handicapping features.
