Hello, I've just got the above keyboard and have recorded one song in the available Midi 11-15 slots, and it under Rec song 1 in Number 11. I've been trying to copy this to an inserted USB stick as ultimately I want to be able to save midi songs to USB as there are only 5 slots on the keyboard. Is it possible to do this? Any help would be gratefully received.

Many thanks
Stevgil

This page and the next of the manual I downloaded

The manuals probably differ by country

Here is a link to a page where you can download the user manual for the S3000. I hope this helps. Best, Don

Hi b3maniac: many thanks for the helpful links. Although not exactly stated in the manuals, it seems that the MIDI files must remain in the 5 slots on the keyboard and cannot be downloaded or even recorded onto USB. I've managed to do this with Audio files i.e. non-MIDI only, though I'd be extremely happy to be proved wrong on this!

Best wishes

Despite what it says in the marketing rubbish the CT-X range are very limited in usable Pro features, this is also probably true regarding other makes.

If you want to use your Casio for MIDI recording you are best using a Computer and a DAW or return the Casio and buy a much more expensive Arranger which has good recording features.

This is how easy it is with a more feature rich arranger.

Hi, Biggles, Many thanks for the link and comment. I would have gone for such as a Korg arranger as you mention, but as these aren't weighted keys, I get arm ache problems after a couple of days of playing. Firstly, I'm more of a 'pianist' so key action, half-pedal etc., is important and I didn't want to get too bogged down in producing MIDI 'masterpieces' but rather just playing along to created backings of some sort. I had also thought about the Korg XE 20 as it has more arranger facilities but I'm not sure about the rest of it e.g. it has no pitch-bend wheel or modulation. My other keyboard is a Roland FA08 and I think I was hoping to somehow incorporate this alongside the Casio to wile away the hours making the best uses of both, preferably somehow used together. The Casio keyboard feels great to me even though the backings are a little 'basic' perhaps. I originally hoped to making play along backings on the Casio with a view to using the Roland to perhaps enhance these somewhere along the line. I could send the Casio back and get something else but I'm not sure what to do as I'm not even sure what direction I want to go as I just want to amuse myself making best uses of what I've got. I am tempted to buy an Apple laptop perhaps and go down the DAW route but it seems a bit more involved than I really want to go. Thanks to this Lockdown lark, I've not been able to visit any music shops to try out stuff so it's just hit and miss and just going by other comments. Anyway, sorry if I've gone on a bit but any comments are always welcome. Again, many thanks for taking the time to reply.
Kind wishes
