The keyboard also includes the ability to record and playback audio files in 16-bit/44.1 kHz stereo resolution. The MZ-X500 ships with a power adapter and a music stand.

Design

  • Easy-Access Front Panel
    • A 3D cockpit design with the speaker and console facing the player has been adopted. This configuration establishes a natural 3D sound field, while at the same time facilitating performance with the pads and improving the visibility of the color touch LCD

Professional Sound Quality

  • High-Quality Sound Engine

  • Virtual Tone-Wheel Organ
    • Casio’s refined digital technologies faithfully reproduce the old mechanical tone-wheel organ sounds that are popular among rock and jazz fans. Not only the peculiar tremors of the organ’s rotary speakers, but even its leakage noise, are accurately replicated
    • The developers’ devotion to duplicating the deep, heavy resonance of the traditional tone-wheel organ has generated a rich supply of flavorful sounds
  • Hex Layer and Synth
    • A built-in Hex Layer overlays up to six different tones to produce polyphonic sound that contributes to powerful musical expression

Players can also set automatic accompaniment functions such as Auto Fill-in, Break, Intro/Ending and Synchro Start/Stop to produce their envisioned performances to perfection. The system’s ability to handle tension chords as well makes it easy for players to incorporate technical arrangements into their performances
  • Pattern Sequencer
    • The Pattern Sequencer permits users to set and save original back-up styles. Besides providing accompaniment for solo instrumental and vocal performances, it serves as a second member of the band to manage guitar, drum, string or other parts

  • Phrase
    • Players can use the touch-response pads to insert original preset phrases or any of the numerous built-in phrases suited to various musical genres into performances. When chords are specified in the Auto Accompaniment Mode, appropriate phrases are integrated naturally into the performance when the chords are played, deepening the music’s expressive power
    • An original CASIO articulation function permits modification of sound-production nuances during performances
  • Chord
    • Chord progressions can be preset for automatic accompaniment. Chords can also be assigned to the 16 pads according to a song’s progression. The ability to modify chords simply by pressing a pad lets players devote both hands to the melody or to ad lib freely

Users can leverage inspiration obtained through live shows and music production in their performances and compositions. The cockpit design has the operation buttons and display laid out in front of the performer. Substantial improvements in display visibility and pad and knob operability provide smooth, stress-free control
