Might there be an updated Privia Performance Model: PX-? - 01/08/13 01:55 PM

Just saw this over at the music player forums. I'd really like to see an updated PX-3 with the PX-850 specs and finally professional and "new" Rhodes electric pianos, that are on par with all the major contenders (amp simulation, realease sounds, etc). Also an internal power supply and professional outputs would be nice, but I'm probably asking too much there,lol. Is Mike Martin around...I know he can't spill the beans, but are we in for a treat at the 2013 NAMM show as far as professional stage pianos go for Casio?

There is a new privia around for sure, there is privia logo on shattered glass.

But it may be a privia successor

That is quite a wish list. help
Unfortunately I can't divulge anything until the show starts.

Hey Mike I totally understand, I just think that you guys are really on to something with the new PX series. The new key action/keybed and piano sounds are really great. I just wish you guys would apply some of the new AIR technology to the vintage Rhodes and Wurlitzer sounds to give us keyboard players a truly killer lightwieght stage piano. I actually owned a PX350 for a week and had to return it, because of the lack of a playable Rhodes sound! I even saw your Joe Sample clips but honestly the sound just wasn't working (I'm a big early Joe Sample fan with the Crusaders). If you guys could put even some of the AIR technology towards the vintage EP department, Casio will have my money!

I have nothing to contribute on this topic...

...but +1 for mentioning Joe Sample and the Crusaders. wink

As with the product life cycle thread. I know the second I buy it (the PX) a new faster harder, better altogether super duper model will be introduced. While the model I buy will be discontinued.

Which has none of the deficiencies of the old model.


This exact thing happened with my CDP200. Was disco'd the day after I bought it.

Wow, nice one!

Man, I wish I could attend - it'd be great to ask Joe how he got *that* Pianet sound on the Jazz Crusaders 'Live at the Lighthouse '69' album.

(yeah, apologies for bringing that up again...)

The PX350 Rhodes seems to be playable enough for Joe Sample.

I like the PX130 Rhodes a lot- I comment to a friend that I feel like I am back in high school sometimes playing it.

Look at the bottom of the shattered glass picture

you see a slider with "5/13"

This implies a 16 track recorder- maybe digital like the Roland Juno Gi?

The slider is either track 5 of 1-8 or track 13 of 9-16.

Perhaps these sliders are also drawbars.

So is this a 88 key piano/workstation/digital recorder??

I assume it will use SD cards?

Does it have internal speakers?

Don't mean to throw you too far off with our clue. The wrong photo was posted. The prototype product that was photographed had something labeled 5/13. The /13 is not on the final product, just a 5. ;-)

Don't apologise. It should be law that every cool electric piano sound be fully documented and the info included with the purchase of the work. ;^)
