I ordered the black wooden stand for my Casio PX330. I expect it will be as sturdy as the wooden stand that came with my old Casio PX100 which was also always on carpet. I think it requires screwing the stand into the sides of the keyboard somewhere. With the PX100, the plastic end caps had to be removed first. The wooden stand reduces the portability dramatically. Also, I think Casio has available the three pedal option as well.

I've never played the P85, although I probably should have. Not sure if the rival piano store in town has one. I suggest you play both, if you have not already. Also, look for a decent return policy just in case.

One thing about the Casio 330 is it has a variety of outputs/inputs and an SD memory card input. I don't know if the P85 has these, or if you even need them.

Good luck!

Sandy

And the action on the PX-330 is not as heavy as it was on the PX-320, which was one important factor that led me to prefer the P-85 at the time. The 320 and 330 undoubtedly have more features than the P-85, so now the difference to the P-85 mainly boils down to how the speakers perform and what the piano sound is like.

I still like the P-85, but the PX-330 seems to be a big improvement over the PX-320...

I spoke to a customer at the piano store yesterday, and he does gigs jammin with digital pianos. He tried the P85 and the PX330. He clearly liked the keyboard of the P85 better than the 330, for his purposes. I'm satisfied with the 330, and I could not appreciate the difference which was very clear to him.

Just thought I'd post this to help you guys out in your decision making.

It's great to hear that you are satisfied with the 330. I just recently placed an order for the px-330 so its a relief to still hear happy customers. Should be arriving in a couple of weeks.

Now the challenging part...


The waiting game. lol grin

Mele Kalikimaka to you! Merry Christmas to all!

I truly enjoy my 330. The piano samples and touch are just great for me. The USB MIDI out works great, as do the 1/4 inch aud outs. Now to try the SD card and the 1/4 inch inputs.

I bought a new USB external SB audio card and now I am satisfied with my recordings through Audacity. My 7 year old card was not good enough.

Thanks once again to all members who helped me on this forum.

Regards,

Sandy

I just bought a new USB external SB audio card for 60 bucks and now I am very satisfied with my recordings through Audacity. My 7 year old card was not good enough.

I found the Cubase LE4 software overwhelming and couldn't get it to work. I returned that Tascam US122L.

Although I also bought a Tascam DR-1 which will be easier to operate than the US122L, I can save a bunch of money by using my new audio card instead.

If you were around here, I'd buy you guys drinks for helping me so much.

Also, if I ever need a Tascam DR1, I can save small fortune by buying online.

Thanks again.

Sandy
