Any Casio Musical Keyboard Experts Reading This?
One of the benefits I am thinking of taking advantage of is the ability to own an electronic musical keyboard valued at less than $200. You must use it in your cube, and always with headphones. Since I have limited access to classical music via the radio, why not learn to play my own? Yeah right.
I am intrigued by the product blurb provided for the Casio CTK691. It says the keyboard is equipped with a standard midi player, and mentions "Synthesizer and Sequencer functions can be used to edit and create tones." Does this mean I might also be able to input my own midi file via the keyboard? I would not be able to have access to a computer to download files.
I am not sure exactly how it would work, but what I am wondering is if I was to put the four parts of a hymn into the keyboard somehow, could I then play it back like it was a downloaded midi file? Could I make changes if a note was wrong? I am certainly new to the whole electronic music area. I know that I can make the keyboard play different sounds.
Another question is can I put together more than one of the tones at a time. On the smaller Casio, even though they have many different sounds, you can only play one tone at a time.
I would appreciate anyone familiar with this particular model letting me know what the keyboard is capable of. Thank you.
