YanLowFreq's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)

Casio PX-300
We are a numrique piano, 88 keys, touch Piano Heavy, here simply the highlight of the piano keyboard splittable 12.5 kg and 2 stackable sound, touch config to Heavy Low, normal.
Cool Connections, line in, line out, two pedals on the rear and two headphone outputs MIDI IN OUT THROUGH ;-) on the cot of the machine.
30 sound samples, good quality. 4 sounds "GRAND PIANO" satisafaisant they are no more. 120 GM sounds, not ditables, 120 rhythms of fairly good quality non ditables non-plus.
All part squenceur is the weak point of this piano, pure Reduces magnto noon with the START and STOP, basta. On only two tracks, you are entitled to a decision (without a net).
The party arranger, is not much better: 1 Intro, Outro 1, Fill in a style that's all. Also most girls are inadequate or not cohrents. The Systm CASIO CHORD is fun but LGERS: major, minor, 7, Minor 7, basta.
Section purpose: Reverb and Chorus. With a few variations .... it works.
The party sound: a little lgre too. Sound nice, but missing srieusement chest.

UTILIZATION

The CONTROLS: no practical requirement to use two hands for most actions (choice of tempo rhythms etc.). No visual: a single dial 3 figure :-(, LDG 'LDG' ledge ' .

The layout of some controls are carrment same idiot from the designers of thing, one of many examples: just put the button FILL cot and perfectly identical to the "STOP" button ... imagine the effect live on error ... carrment dangerous.
Another freelance? Yes, y 'a. .. the procedure to erase a track's MIDI magnto (I say deliberately not squenceur, right) is such that every time it clears the track we wanted to keep. Let me explain why, but it's like a.

Splittable keyboard sounds and 2 stackable, config of touch on Heavy Low, normal.
The choice of sounds is ais everything else is complicated. The permanent prsence the manual and lists of sound / patch / Song is strongly advised on the desk at first. This manual is also not clear particulirement.

This piano is in the home studio plutt fate as matre keyboard for example. Use of EXTERNAL is absolutely squenceur compltement ncessaire.
[EDIT following testing MIDI]
- Features hard-to-MIDI s'avre Accs. Assign ownership of a simple sound to MIDI channel reception poses difficulties. After consulting the https://www.casio-europe.com/fr/emi/px300/, we learn that there is a connection program OWN twelve o'clock this product .... trs standard not just a. pffff ....
- In use with an external squenceur, we can only play MIDI sounds GM, not the sounds of high quality sample. Dcidment is ridiculous-> I sacked note 4 2.

As piano study, he replaced the upright piano idalie noisy apart ', thanks its two headphone outputs, the work is simplified as a duo.

SOUNDS

Ralistes sounds in majority, Piano touch, good expression. However, lack a pitch shifter for fun.

OVERALL OPINION

It is the study of piano at home. Chosen for its affordable price trs his raliste touch, sounds effective. Is its quality research, and what are his .... and it is only for light weight.
I put an overall score OK because it satisfies me as a rle.
But really, the parties squenceur and arranger are laughable.

A small portion consists of 20 songs pdagogique pre-recorded on two tracks, tempo Editable rvle is also nice, if the beef with Amadeus Lennon or tempt you :-) For a, The doc contains partoches of 20 songs of legends, for pianists

Casio PX-300
That says it all down ... (And yes I'm lazy). Except that my bill will be different since this keyboard is a very good price / quality ratio.

Updated:

After nearly a year of use these are faults that reappear. I had problems at the connector (line out failed => sound + in + low). I did repair (fortunately for nothing). The verdict: in-house manufacturing is limited. Apparently, a chemical would cast welds causing a short circuit.

UTILIZATION

It's true that if you want to tweak, use is not great. But personally, I use this keyboard mainly for a heavy touch. "Heavy", so to speak, of course, nothing can replace the feel of a real piano. But it's still one of the best ways to have a good touch. From there, the important criteria are that the weight is more than reasonable (12.5 kg). It can be worn alone without worry. And another point pleasant it is amplified. A significant comfort on stage when the scales were sloppy, we do not have a return or when there is no sound when other zicos to swing (the keyboardists know what I mean). And what's more annoying than having to lug an amp when it's hard to boeuffer the home of friends.

For me, this keyboard is a good tool for those who want to walk with and can also work at home quietly thanks to the hundreds of rhythms that he has. It changes the metronome and it avoids turning on the computer to launch sequence. I have not tried the option of automatic accompaniment used more for work at home as the scene, as the rhythms (in fact I am surprised the weak point of the previous opinion criticizing the "fill" and "stop" is next to each other ... no importance, which would have the absurd idea of ​​using this kind of pace on stage !!?).
In short, this keyboard is not practical to use with respect to all the unimportant things, when to use it most: the stage. Therefore, its weight, its small speakers and the small number of buttons (which becomes an advantage on stage) catch up instantly.

Finally, we can note a significant point regarding the use of a headphone. First, you can connect headphones to portable (small entrance). No adapter needed. Second, there are two headphone inputs. The utility? Teach piano without shit neighbors or with several students at a time.

Updated:

I use it much now as master keyboard that fills the gaps in the sounds and offers me a flexible solution at the transport level (important concert => casio computer rehearsal + => casio alone). Is it because there is also a manufacturing defect? I know nothing but the use of the sustain pedal generates three signals noon. One of the desired channel and on channels 2 and 3. Great! Of interest to those using multiple keyboards masters ...

SOUNDS

Sounds good. I'll be honest, I'm a big user of the rhodes and I must admit it is rather well rendered here. I do not attach too much importance to the rest but quickly flew with the sounds, I find them quite good .... other than the piano. I have an old Clavinova (CLP-840) with the piano is much better. At the same time, a view that the keyboard is used on stage with other musicians and amplification, no doubt it will do but its good .... when you turn the keyboard and we did our usual agreement fetish, you can be disappointed with the result.

All the sounds that lack of good quality for all curves but this is not really a surprise. Also, beware, as they test the keyboard with or without amplification (either with or without a headphone) that changes a lot the result (the speakers of the keyboard is logically feeble).

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it to make the scene using mainly the rhodes. However, this keyboard is very light, good touch, it has good sound and speakers of Rhodes, its price is one of the lowest in the market regarding this type of keyboard ..... the rest provides a bonus denied the use I had planned to do. I can only be satisfied with my purchase. For me the big downside is with sounds. I would rather have the same keyboard with a good sound rhodes / piano rhythms and not for example. Anyway, I tested a lot and have a keyboard with better sound means a higher price of 200 € (one-quarter the price of the Casio!), A higher weight and fewer features .... .
