Pitch distortion on my Casio CTK-5000 keyboard!

Recently, some notes on my Casio CTK-5000 keyboard have been sounding distorted; the pitch starts to waver and it sounds very off-key. Usually, it's only certain notes, and some tones are worse than others. If I play a single note several times, the pitch changes; chords also sound distorted. Sometimes it happens, and sometimes it doesn't. I think I might have even got a plectrum down inside the keys once! Would that cause a problem? Do you have any suggestions? Thanks in advance :)

    Just to say, the other night I played for half and hour - fine. Then all of a sudden, the pitch went about a semitone out and kept fluctuating. In case it's a problem to do with the pitch bend mechanism, I've reset the pitch bend range to 0 (it was on 2). Not sure if that'll help...

IF every key sounds like it is doing that, you may have two voices selected with one of them being transposed.

You may have an "effect" turned on that generates a chorus, layered or multiple voice sounds.

Check the power adapter for proper voltage. Anything more will require taking it in for service.

LOOKING FOR A MANUAL


Most Casio keyboard manuals are available from their support page: http://support.casio.com/en/manual/manual.php?cid=008&MODULE= . Here you will need to accept the Casio terms of use. Then scroll down to the correct model. The direct link to the User's Guide is currently http://support.casio.com/en/manual/008/CTK4000_5000_EN.pdf . Casio also has an appendix and documentation on the MIDI standard on the Manuals page for the CTK-5000.

I hope this helps.

Casio px-330bk keys pitch sharp top half of keyboard


The problem you're encountering is actually a feature, called stretch tuning. While real pianos are tuned in this way it's meant to sympathise with their natural 'organics' and might sound wrong on a digital instrument. The solution is to turn stretch tuning off. The manual should be able to tell you how.

I have casio CTK 5000. i want to download additional tones and rhythms on it . kindly suggest the site as well as the file formats it will recognize for this model. also kindly describe the total procedure...


It is possible to load new rhythms and tones in the CTK-5000. But you need the stuff. That is what it really lacks. Casio needs the Rhythms and tones in its own formats.

Casio CTK-651 keyboard wont switch on


An internal fuse is UNLIKELY.

More likely is either a bad connection/connector at power input or a bad or intermittent power switch.

When I play the sound come out distorted, like it untunes. any idea what is causing the problem? this is a for a Korg X50 and is only 2 yrs old. not korg Ma30


The manual is at:http://www.korguksupport.co.uk/upload/X50_OpGuide_E1.pdf if you don't have one. Try saving everything you want to save first if you know how to do that. Then initialize the keyboard. Follow the instructions on page 111 carefully. It sounds like you created an undesirable effect and accidently assigned the Pitch Bend Lock function to the effect. This parameter is explained on page 41 under Pitch Wheel Mod Wheel. Hope this helps.
