OVERVIEW

(Open Box) Powerful music workstation.

The MZ-X500 provides over 1,100 high-quality Tones, covering a variety of instruments. Acoustic guitars include fret noise, harmonics, string slides and body slaps. Basses have smooth glissando from note to note. The Tones can be easily modified to suit your tastes, thanks to the Color Touch Interface and real-time control knobs and sliders. You can also draw on a selection of 20 different effects to fit any occasion.

Virtual Tonewheel Organ
The MZ-X500 faithfully reproduces the timeless sound of a vintage tonewheel organ. The rotary speaker is also simulated in great detail, giving you the complete vocabulary of this revered instrument. The physical sliders give you precise drawbar control, and easy onscreen buttons provide you with essential adjustments.

Hex Layer And Bass Synth
The MZ-X500 boasts Casio’s powerful Hex Layer technology. This flexible architecture allows you layer six different sounds together in a single Tone. Each layer has its own key and velocity zones, plus a complete set of synthesizer parameters. Now, multiply all that by four, because the MZ-X500 can play an astonishing four Hex Layers simultaneously, giving you control of 24 sounds at once. With Hex Layers, you can command an entire symphony orchestra, a massive polysynth, or any other sound you can imagine.

The MZ-X500’s Bass Synth uses the power of Hex Layers to deliver the fun and versatility of analog-style synthesis. These classic and evocative bass sounds can be played monophonically, with adjustable legato and portamento behavior. A library of vintage bass sounds is included to cover classic songs, and they can be easily modified using the real time controls and Color Touch Interface.

Easy Production Tools
The MZ-X500 is a songwriter’s dream. Realize your creativity with a 16-track MIDI recorder with a full suite of mixing and editing features, plus powerful effect processors and USB audio recording. Select an ensemble, lay down a groove, then connect a microphone and record your performance as an upload-ready WAV file.

Authentic Rhythms
The MZ-X500 contains hundreds of flexible and great-sounding Rhythms, representing musical genres from around the world. Latin, Middle Eastern, European, Asian, and other global Rhythms are included, as well as a full spectrum of pop, jazz, rock, dance. These Rhythms have multiple intros, endings, and variations, and use advanced chord detection to deliver complete accompaniment ensembles that react smoothly to the way you play. They are ideal for solo performances, songwriting, or just enjoying a jam session with a virtual band of professional musicians.

Touch, Twist, And Tap
The bold, bright 5.3-inch Color Touch Interface puts you in the driver’s seat, and makes it incredibly easy to explore and navigate the MZ-X Series. It can even be used as an X/Y controller for the built-in effects and filters, controlling two parameters with just one touch. Onscreen text is large and easy to read from any angle.

Multi-Function Pads
The MZ-X500 has 16 backlit, velocity sensitive multi-function pads. Initially, you’ll find they can add new, creative, and fun elements to your music. As you explore them further, you’ll realize they can open up a new dimension to your performance and composition.

Sampling
Quickly and easily record high-quality samples from any source via the line and mic inputs, and assign them to the pads. Create a drum kit with custom percussion sounds, record your vocal harmonies, or create a soundboard of clips to trigger during your performance.

Chord
You can also use the MZ-X500’s pads is to trigger chords, which can drive the MZ-X500’s accompaniment Rhythms. This can simplify a performance, freeing up your hands to play a two-handed melody, or use controllers. You can even store a complete chord progression on a single chord, giving you unprecedented live remix capability.

Speakers
The MZ-X500’s bass-reflex speaker system puts out a staggering 40 watts of power, and sounds rich and clear at any level. A 4-band parametric equalizer is included to help you customize the output to suit any space.

    Comments about Casio MZ-X500 Music Arranger:

    I've had my MZ X500 for about 6 months now and I absolutely love it. I call it "The Beast" because it can do everything and kills any other board out there in this price range. I am a solo act so I use it for creating tracks to back me up when I play live. I love the portability and the ease of use. There is a lot to learn but the touch screen makes it easy to figure things out.

    The ability to plug in a mic and another instrument are really useful. Sometime I plug in my guitar and others I will have my second keyboard plugged in through the MZ X running stereo out which is really cool.

    Love the flexibility of this board. Speakers are great for just playing at home or a small gig. If you take it out it is stage ready as well.

    And did I mention the Hex Layers and Bass synth?? Those features alone are worth the price of this board. Overall great value for the money. 1100 great tones already that can be easily molded to find that perfect sound you are looking for.

    If you are looking at this board. Get it!! You will be happy you did...
