    Daddy, you play the subtractive?

    Casio HT700Published on 07/12/11 at 08:58
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Basically mini keyboard families (factory sounds ridiculous, ballochi accompaniments), the HT700 has the distinction of having under the hood of a subtractive complete chain fully editable. The DCO has 31 waveforms PCM, the VCF (yes, a real VCF!) Is low-pass and resonant, two ADSR are found to modulate filter and tilt, an LFO with four waveforms and delay assigned to the pitch. Side effects, a chorus, but not editable with 2 factory presets available. The sound editing is possible for the principal but for the agreements of the automatic accompaniment. He too is editable also: Rhythm programmable, low-programmable, programmable chord inversions.

    Basically mini keyboard families (factory sounds ridiculous, ballochi accompaniments), the HT700 has the distinction of having under the hood of a subtractive complete chain fully editable. The DCO has 31 waveforms PCM, the VCF (yes, a real VCF!) Is low-pass and resonant, two ADSR are found to modulate filter and tilt, an LFO with four waveforms and delay assigned to the pitch. Side effects, a chorus, but not editable with 2 factory presets available. The sound editing is possible for the principal but for the agreements of the automatic accompaniment. He too is editable also: Rhythm programmable, low-programmable, programmable chord inversions.
    If not, here we have a mini-keyboard keys not sensitive to the velocity of 4 octaves, a Pitch, pitch adjustment overall + / - 5 semitones and MIDI implementation. Power is supplied by AC adapter or batteries. There are 20 factory presets for the lead and 20 support and 20 users for each section. A memory card slot adds in another 20 more, but unfortunately this option is almost not found! A pity also because for the Protection of sound, internal memory is volatile and if the addition of cells keeps its own sound, autonomy is very low, even off key!
    Side connections: MIDI in / out, RCA audio output and headphone output 3.5.
    The present 2 HP can work independently but are still of poor quality.

    UTILIZATION

    To start with the HT700, it is best to always have at hand the manual. Not that its use is particularly difficult, but at first it takes some getting used to the menus. Indeed, the screen displays only two characters and each set is assigned a number. For example, the cutoff frequency of the filter corresponds to the number 10, the resonance at 11, etc, etc ...
    Editing is done by a single knob so it does not make too easy but we got used.

    SOUNDS

    Once published (the factory sounds are despicable and totally obscure the quality of the keyboard), one is always surprised by the potential of this machine. The sounds are very punchy with a grain analogue very satisfactory. I could get extremely punchy bass (pity the keyboard does not drop below), the ultra 80's chords, tablecloths and some convincing sounds very special, unique to the machine (sounds vague and fluffy enough aesthetic LO -FI)
    The drum has its own character, very Lo-Fi too, with a good overall dynamic.
    Cons: crappy audio output that generates a little breath.
    Concerning the support, the ability to edit it is interesting but unfortunately it's hard to escape from a very sound Cheezy (the bass sound has much to do I think). on the other hand, use only the drum machine is a programmable solution.
    I put a 10 to this section, for the price and what this keyboard was originally intended, the sound is still phenomenal

    OVERALL OPINION

    Pros: For the price, a fully editable keyboard nomadic and semi-analog capable of outputting sounds quite surprising (to give an idea, it should not offend the fans of Roland Juno, though different and lower quality).
    Cons: the volatile memory, audio output
    Between the toy and the analog nature, this keyboard has a special place!
    Featured!
    Note: his older brothers: HT3000 and HT6000
