Twin Mode (aka Duet Play, Duo Mode) allows you to split the keyboard into 2 “little” piano keyboards, so each half has 44 notes, and both have a middle C. In GarageBand you can fix that from MIDI velocity setting, in the others DAW adding a velocity filter, but I think that it should work in the right way without using any tricks. To harken back to our first point regarding the importance of a good sound for one’s enjoyment of a given instrument, both pianos get a thumbs up here, whether you’re a beginner or a more experienced player. It however does not offer any triple pedal compatibility, so if that’s a critical feature for you, the FP-10 is out. It is, however, possible that the actions felt different to you despite being identical according to the specs (I experienced that myself).

I use a Roland FP-30 with the same PHA-4 Standard action and Rolands MIDI implementation is perfect, it's reliable the whole 0 - 127 range. To put the others in context, Casio’s Tri-Sensor Hammer Action is a close second, Korg’s Natural Hammer action would be in third place, and Yamaha’s GHS action might come in fourth place.

Here’s the big reason why this would be sorely mistaken and why the FP-10 is still 100% relevant – the presence of the PHA4 action. At least in Europe, the Casio CDP-S1000 is slightly more expensive than the FP-10, and in the entry-level range, budget tends to be a key aspect. That said, we would still put the Smart Scaled action ahead of some others in the class, such as Yamaha’s GHS action (featured in the Yamaha P-45 and P-125) and Korg’s Natural Weighted Hammer Action. Casio have confirmed that the USB Audio is for recording audio to a USB stick only so it's not USB Audio to a computer based DAW. Key off resonance is a subtle sound happening when you release a played note, and the damper falls onto the string to silence it, producing a subtle sound, which also changes depending on how fast your fingers leave the keys.

And it’s particularly nice to find this key action in an entry-level digital piano such as the FP-10. When used in an intimate setting, the tone quality and power of the onboard speakers leaves out the need for an external amplifier - perfect for easy transport from venue to venue.The jack on the headphones that come in the bundle is too large for the dedicated headphones port on the back of the piano. I purchased this model almost two months ago after reading about it extensively and I’m really happy with it. AM)Geoff Quickfall Wrote: I have a fully functioning 602 programmable Casio calculator, the printer and the interface for the cassette deck. With 88 weighted keys and a great all round action, I was very happy indeed with my time on the Roland FP-10.

Just trying to resolve in my mind whether to persue leads with a few paper manufacturers or bid my time and wait for TAS type sales. When it comes to the core piano sound, as we often say at Merriam Pianos, it’s going to come down to a matter of personal preference. If you’re looking for a piano to gig with, this would also be a solid option, especially considering its compact size and high-quality keyboard action. I have a Casio CDP-S100 in another city and comparing previous recordings I can see the velocity levels are significantly lower with the PX-S1000.Another example of polyphony consumption is when you’re playing along with a song playback (can also be your own recorded performance) or auto-accompaniment. Sturdily built and thoughtfully designed, the FP-10 includes a sheet music holder, a sustain pedal port, and a stereo mini-jack output for headphones or external speakers. You may wonder how it is possible to have 32, 64, or even 128 notes playing at the same time, if there are only 88 keys and we never play them all at once. I use it at its default touch setting and make the finer curve adjustments, if needed, in the software. Plus, with Bluetooth and MIDI connectivity, you can connect with a world of Digital Audio Workstations (DAW) and apps ranging from Apple GarageBand to Roland’s Piano Partner 2*.

And it actually makes sense considering the FP-30 has quite a few features and sounds not found on the FP-10. Making definitive statements like this help no one and in fact they are not even valid because we can only comment on what WE don't like not what everyone else should or shouldn't like. With that said, if you want the most hassle-free all-in-one option, then, yeah, bundles are great for that.The optional KSC-FP10 keyboard stand gives the instrument a classy piano look, or it can equally be used with an X stand - see 'Recommended Accessories' for further details. With that in mind, we’ll be comparing these two super popular, value-packed entry-level portable digital pianos that happen to remain among the most interesting match-ups in the class. Optional pedal DP-10 (capable of half pedal) Sound Generator Piano Sound SuperNATURAL Piano Sound Max. There’s a special 8-pin connector on the back of the FP-30 that will take the signal from all 3 pedals.
