      Casio WK-7500 76-Key Digital Keyboard Workstation (H71333)
Availability:  


Casio's best keyboard workstation offers sound-creation and live-performance features.

Casio’s flagship WK-7500 delivers an unprecedented level of power and music-making capabilities in a highly affordable workstation. Along with high-quality sounds and a 17-track sequencer, the WK-7500 also has the ability to record audio. Even sounds from external instruments can be mixed and recorded. You can plug-in a microphone, guitar, bass, or other instruments, play along with instrument tracks within the WK-7500, and save to SDHC storage cards. Plus with included Data Manager software, you can mix down to a stereo WAV file. The WK-7500 also features large LCD display screens, nine physical sliders for mixing capabilities, and an organ drawbar mode.

Multi-track Recorder Capabilities:

The Song Sequencer provides 16 tracks plus one system track that supports recording of up to five songs and a total of approximately 30,000 notes. Each individual musical instrument part can be recorded to a different track for real multi-track recording capabilities. In addition to real-time recording of keyboard and Auto Accompaniment play, the Song Sequencer also supports punch-in and punch-out spot recording of specific parts of a song, and event-editing lets you edit recorded data note-by-note. A full selection of editing tools include event insert, event delete, event copy, quantize, a locator feature for selecting the range of notes to be edited, and more. A step-recording function also lets you input notes by specifying the length and pitch. Completed recordings can be converted to SMF (Standard MIDI File) format and stored to an SD memory card.

32-channel Mixer:
Nine sliders, one for each channel, can be used for individual simultaneous adjustment of volume, pan, reverb send, and other parameters. Sound input from an external source via the MIC IN terminal and INST IN terminal can also be adjusted as desired.

Pattern Sequencer:
Up to eight tracks (drum, percussion, bass, chord 1 through chord 5) can be edited to create original accompaniment patterns (Intro, Normal, Normal Fill-in, Variation, Variation Fill-in). In addition to recording over each individual accompaniment part of an existing rhythm, and event editing function gives you total control over each aspect of recorded data, an Easy Edit function lets you combine accompaniment from multiple built-in rhythms to create original rhythms, and mixer capabilities give you control over the tones, volume levels, reverb, and other parameters of each part. A full selection of editing tools include event insert, event delete, event copy, quantize, and more. Memory is provided for storage of up to 100 different user rhythms, which can be recalled with the touch of a key.

Audio Recording and Playback:
Keyboard play, Auto Accompaniment, Song Sequencer play, and sound input via the Inst In and/or Mic In terminals can be recorded as digital audio data to an SD memory card inserted in the card slot for later playback. Of course, you can play along on the keyboard during playback from an SD memory card (not included). Saved audio files can also be transferred to a computer connected via USB for long-term storage. Special Data Manager 6.0 application software, downloadable from Casio’s website, can be used to convert data to WAV format, which can be played back on a computer. All of this greatly simplifies the task of creating original demo recordings.

* Note: To perform the operations described above, you will need to obtain an SD memory card or SDHC memory card with a capacity between 2GB and 32GB. (See #485547).

Multiple Digital Effects
Built-in effects include reverb (10 types), chorus (five types), and DSP (100 types using 46 effect types including delay, phaser, flanger, wah, rotary, and more). You can apply different effects to a tone to create exactly the sound you want. By adjusting the parameters of the DSP effect types, you can create original DSP effects and store up to 100 original types in memory for later recall.

* Note: DSP and chorus cannot be used simultaneously.

Drawbar Organ Function:
50 specially selected, often-used preset drawbar settings come built-in. A few simple operations produce a digital reproduction of powerful, deep drawbar organ sound that is the dream of every keyboardist. A rotary speaker is simulated using a built-in DSP for the distinctive sound effect of drawbar organ speakers. Like a drawbar organ, nine sliders can be used to change harmonic overtone level settings and to create sounds by adding a harmonic percussion effect in real time as you play. You can edit the parameters of the distinctive percussion effect and click sound of a drawbar organ to create original drawbar organ tones, and save up to 50 of your creations in memory for later recall.

Registration—A Tool For Live Performances:
A simple operation saves the current setup, including tone, rhythm, and other settings for instant recall when you need them. The WK-7500 has 6 sets x 16 banks for saving 96 setups. You even can save tones that effector effects are being applied to. Recalling a registration instantly changes the digital keyboard's setup, making this a great tool for live stage performances.

Tone Editor:
Tone Editor can be used to adjust attack time, release time, cutoff, vibrato, reverb, chorus, DSP, and other parameters as desired. You can create distinctively original tones for performances and music creation sessions.

Arpeggiator:
With the arpeggiator, you can play various arpeggios and other phrases automatically by simply pressing keys on the keyboard. You can select from 150 different arpeggiato types, including playing arpeggios from a fingered chord, guitar phrases, and more.

SD Memory Card Slot:
Song sequencer, pattern sequencer, tone editor, and other data can be saved to an SD or SDHC memory card. An Audio Record function can be used to record digital audio data. SMF (Standard MIDI File) data stored on an SD or SDHC memory card can be played back on the digital keyboard.

Input/Output Terminals:
Different input/output terminals are provided to meet a variety of different needs: line out terminals (L/MONO, R) for connection of the mixer of a stage PA system or other devices, an INST IN terminal and a MIC IN terminal for connection of a musical instrument or microphone, an audio in terminal (AUDIO IN) for audio device input that can be output through the speakers, and more.

USB Port:
The USB port provides easy computer and MIDI send/receive connection. It also enables quick and simple transfer of song sequencer, pattern sequencer, tone editor and other data, as well as audio data recorded to an SD memory card from an audio device between the digital keyboard and a computer. Download of a special Data Manager 6.0 application is required in order to transfer data to a computer.

AHL Sound Source:
The sound source is pre-programmed with digital samples of acoustic musical instruments recorded using the most advanced digital technology. Thanks to CASIO original sound technology, the AHL sound source is capable of reproducing all of the natural smoothness of the original waveform. The AHL sound source delivers a lineup of 800 different built-in tones. You also can store up to 100 of your own original tones for instant recall whenever you need them.

250 Preset Rhythms and Auto Accompaniment:
A total of 250 preset rhythms cover a wide range of musical genres, from rock and pops, to jazz, Latin, piano pieces, and more. Simply select the built-in rhythm you want and Auto Accompaniment provides you with backup that is the next best thing to having a professional band at your disposal.

Sliders and Large Dial:
Nine sliders are provided for drawbar organ settings and mixer operations. A large operation dial really comes in handy during music creation using sequencer functions and mixer functions.

Display:
The display shows the currently selected tone name and rhythm name, along with a wealth of other information. On the sequencer screen, for example, you can check the current status and volume level of each of the 16 tracks, and other setting information at a glance.

Piano-Style Keyboard and Touch Response:
The keyboard is designed and engineered to provide a realistic piano experience. Just like a grand piano keyboard, Touch Response causes sound that is output to change in accordance with the amount of pressure applied to the keys.

High-output 2-Way Bass Reflex Speakers:
A 7W+7W high-output bass reflex 2-way 4-speaker system delivers rich sound from low range to high. The speakers can be used as high-quality monitoring speakers during performances and music creation sessions.

Pitch Bend Wheel and Modulation Button:
The pitch bender wheel makes it easy to add realistic sounding guitar choking, sax bending, and other effects to keyboard play. This in combination with the modulation button for applying vibrato and other effects puts a wide range of playing versatility at your fingertips.

Music Presets:
Music presets provide one-touch access to Auto Accompaniment, tone, reverb, and other settings that are configured in accordance with representative chord progressions. A total of 305 presets let you easily configure the keyboard for a wide variety of different musical styles. In addition to built-in presets, you can create your own original presets (user presets) and store them in memory for later recall.

  • Can't be beat for twice the price ...

    As reviewed by CDB on 3/1/2011

    Simple - for $499 (or less with a GC discount): 1) Feature set can't be beat. No question 2) Sounds are generally very decent, and generally comparable to most $1,000+ keyboards 3) Key action isn't bad. Again comparable to most anything under $1K. For a workstation, there is huge bang for buck. This is not a toy Casio, and this is the only board I'd choose unless I wanted and was willing to pay $1,500+ (and I don't)

  • Simply an Amazing Keyboard

    As reviewed by Chris on 3/31/2011

    I rarely write reviews (this is only the second I've ever written). I do not work for, know anyone who does or own stock in Casio. I just felt compelled to write this review to let others know how incredible a product the WK-7500 is. I performed a lot of reasarch on keyboards in order to find any that might meet my requirements. Basically, I wanted a machine that could combine all the practice features that I have in my home studio yet be portable and sound good. Specifically, I wanted a keyboard that has the following features: 1. Good quality sound and a good variety of high-quality built in instruments. 2. Multi-track recording. 3. The ability to ear train and figure out the parts played in songs. 4. The ability to play along with good quality pre-recorded audio (not MP3s but real wav files...trust me there is a hugh difference in quality) and the ability to loop, eq out and start at a specific point in a song. 5. The ability to enhance my practice sessions with accompaniment (drums for timing and chords for practicing right hand parts). 6. Portablity. I wanted to get away from lugging and connecting a heavy synth, laptop computer, audio interface, cables, external HDs with wav files, music stand ect. just to practice somewhere for an hour or two. I'm very pleased to say that the Casio Wk-7500 has all the features above and then some at a price that is acutally thousands of dollars less than any other keyboard/arranger I researched. Simply put, nothing can touch this at anywhere even close to this price point. Amazing job Casio. Here's what I think is amazing about this instrument: 1. Audio playback of WAV files with the ability to repeat (loop) and do some simple frequency cancellation. Try to find that in other machines, even those in the 3-4K range. I was expecting the audio quality to be poor (like that from a cheap portable CD player) but it is actually quite clear. 2. A (removable) music stand. Casio definately gets how important a simple feature like this is to a practicing musician. To other manufacturers out there...cmon guys...we aren't all rock stars playing our own songs...some of us are practicing muscians who need a darn place to hold a piece of sheet music! 3. A decent number of accompaniment styles and a multi-track recorded if you want to create your own accompaniment. 4. Easy keyboard split and layering. 5. A very intuitive user interface. I have only had to consult the manual a couple of times to figure out how the keyboard works. This is the sign of a very good user interface. 6. A portable music practice and performance machine with features not found in keyboards costing much more. I haven't even had a chance to play with all of other features that are available in this instrument but even so, I'm already impressed. I think Casio has nailed it with this one and for the price its an absolute no brainer! Note to other manufacturers: 2,500 to 5,000 for an "arranger" keyboard with cheesy sounding accompaniment that can't even play wav files...time for a reality check!

  • Everything else is great, but it has three serious flaws.

    As reviewed by Dave Wallace on 10/3/2011

    I do not own this keyboard but I am considering it, and have been to my local Guitar Center many, many times to play it. I'm like most of you out there, there are some gigs that I don't want to haul 110 pounds of keyboard (Yamaha XS-8 and Hammond XK-3 or B-3, add another four hundred pounds), I'm looking for the "do it all" keyboard. At this time, the Roland VR-700 is the absolute best, hands down, without question "do it all" board available. But, even with lowball internet pricing, It's still three times as much as this Casio. The Casio has three major flaws, and frankly I'm surprised that more reviewers haven't pointed this out. If you are going to use the organ drawbars, I most sincerely urge you to play the keyboard first without buying, and see if this is going to make a difference to you. The drawbars are correct in their pipe footages and layout, however: (1)They only have three levels each of intensity, each drawbar is either low, medium, or high in volume. Those who have ever played a Hammond know that there are actually eight levels (nine if you count "off". If you have a Hammond and want to know what this sounds like, just use the drawbars only in the 2, 6, and 8 positions. This three level arrangement on the Casio makes real time on the fly drawbar changes sound terrible. Also (2), and even worse: There are periods of no sound whatsoever as each drawbar passes from one of the three levels to the next. And I'm not talking about short periods, either. There is a long, drawn out, empty time in between each of the three levels on all the drawbars. If you don't make your drawbar changes as you're playing, then neither of these nusances will probably bother you. (3) The on board Leslie Speaker rotor simulation is among the worst I've ever heard, typical of a board costing hundreds less. Everything else I will say is great, and this keyboard is probably the best value for your dollar that's out there. I liked all the other sounds (the Hammond tones weren't bad, but they weren't great either), I could find my way around the various perimeters fairly easily, it looks good, it's light weight, and the price is right. But, I use a lot - A LOT - of Hammond in my songs, and I'm currently making a very tough decision as to weather to jump into this board or try to save enough cash for the Roland. In terms of the light weight do it all keyboard, the Roland has no equal. Period. But, in this failing economy, we all have to spend our pennies wisely. I'm just too hooked on the authentic Hammond sound, and the drawbar section on this board may be a deal breaker.
