I have used this keyboard as part of my home gear for recording video game soundtracks, I have used this live and in private band sessions, and I've even used it sitting in bed. The realistic sounds and controls of the instruments is awesome (especially with headphones), and it's super light and a breeze to carry around between gigs and to and from your house. For my home setup, it's a little too long so unless you're sitting straight in front of it, it feels a little too big. But that's just my preference. This keyboard is bound to please anyone (especially because of the price).
- Was this a gift?:
This keyboard is super cool. It is amazing, with all of its features. The one thing I cannot get over is the realistic sounds that come out of it. It is like no other I have ever heard of, I am not joking. Other keyboards you can tell sound like they are digital, but this one, it sounds real, like if the instrument was actually there. It is amazing!! A++++
This and the WK3000 are amazing and I own both...(And I'm a Guitar player)....I don't know how they can put so much stuff in one box..These ate truly Outstanding Musical Instruments..HANDS DOWN !!!!!
More features and better sound quality than the comparable DGX model Yamaha. Mod wheel and Smartmedia storage really set it apart. Sounds are stunning!
This thing reminds me why I've loved Casio for so long. This instrument has the best MIDI implementation I've seen on any keyboard in a while. It's light enough to bring in the kitchen for breakfast, and back to the studio until lunch... Line output, so you can listen directly through powered monitors - this thing sounds good through the built-in speakers, but it's shocking how good it sounds through real monitors. Still disovering new sounds after a couple of weeks of endless play. Buy one - you won't regret it.
Saw it. Noticed its low price. Bought it. And it proved to be very good, except for onboard memory limitations, because some tones are nearly 1 MB (thankfully, a memory card can be used), as a result of which older tones often need to be overwritten.
Depending on what you're trying to do, this keyboard could be very helpful. For live performances on a small level it's great. Plenty of sounds and effects. My favorite is the enhancer effect, there's a big difference when used. For studio production there's a few issues. Most of the sounds are ran through DSP, giving them a reverb/hall effect. This can be overcame by adding the reflect effect to it, but that takes from the integrity of the tone. This can be a problem for your bass line. There is a sequencer I still haven't figured out, maybe I'm slow. Bottom line, this a great keyboard for the price.
As an older keyboardist and player of EKBs for over twenty years including a Sequential Circuits T-8, I love the WK3500. Wonderful sounds, terrific organs, and incredible pianos. Accompaniment, intros and endings are truly remarkable. As far as I'm concerned, Casio has just trumped all the other keyboards in its pricerange.
Good piano sounds and excellent B3 organs sounds with an excellent rotary speaker simulator. Good EP sounds too, but the only thing that don't like is that Casio don't have a software version for Mac OS9 to donwload new sounds, patterns and EFX at the Casio Web Page (only PC). Maybe Casio doesn't know that Mac Computers are the best for music making! (In my opinion) But anyway, the keyboard WK3500 is really good.
I made three trips to the local store before buying this thing cuz it's just so loaded with good sounds and features. And on every trip I compared it against the usual stable of workstations and the Casio simply BLEW AWAY the others for the quality and usefulness of the sounds. I've had it now for 2 weeks and, although setting up the registry memories (full setups w/ splits, layers, effects and accompaniments) is a somewhat convoluted process, the results are simply stunning. I'm getting set to ditch half of my legacy MIDI modules and am only keeping my trusty E-mu Vintage. I quite honestly would've payed twice what I did to get the quality of sounds this thing cranks out, but to get it for this price is the best keyboard value I have ever seen in my 25 years of buying keys. Period.
