I was very surprised by this one. I bought it because I needed a GM synth for stage work. Now it gets used as a controler keyboard on the stage and I even use the presets (especially panio sounds) in the studio and for live. I was lucky to buy it totally by accident, oh yeah the synth feature is brilliant and great fun to make some quick weird bass sounds. It's not a pro keyboard by I've used it as such so It gets 4. It shouldn't get 4, but there is no other rating for it. My Roland W-30 is still pride of place :-).

I just sold my Casio 611. It's a great beginners machine because it doesn't cost a lot, is very accessible and also because some people gig with it without having to worry about dropping it, spilling beer on it etc.

However, it's firmly in the ROMpler department without too much control over the sound. The absence of wheels is sad. However, it will respond to aftertouch controls sent from another keyboard.

If you just play around, that's a fine keyboard, but if you ever try to compose, you are almost certain to start sounding repetetive.

Bottom line: a great cheap keyboard. You can't really rate it on the same ground as any pro unit. I give it a 3, with a lot of respect.

At first,I have to say that I'm really satisfied.This was my first synthesizer I've ever had,and I wasn't disapointted at any time.This is great! 200 tones are enough,but I still miss something.Actually,this doesn't have enough GM tones,or at least I think so. It has 128 of them,but only the rest of them are very good (about 80-128).But hey,It's OK,if you remember,what you cost of it. 200 bucks. 200 bucks! If you find somewhere better synth in THAT prize,let me know about it.E-Mail me right away! The only minus I really have to say,is the speakers.They don't look good.I think It should be best,if they wouldn't be over here. But still this is best synth I have seen in this prize. Thank you,Casio!!

Well, I bought myself one of these awhile ago and I must say, this is a very good synthesizer (for $200, of course). I find that the CTK-611 does a nice job of re-creating acoustic sounds, as well as having some nice synth tones to match. I have already created some really cool pads with this machine. The feature which I enjoy the most is the chord finder, which a great learning device for beginners. I think this is one synthesizer I will hang on to for awhile.

I do, of course, have some problems with the CTK-611. First, I can't not stand the modulation controls. The buttons, I think, are totally useless because they do not alter the pitch that much. Why Casio put this feature on, I do not know. I only wish that there was a mod wheel instead. Second, the rhythms. These just flat out suck! I think it would be best if Casio took these off and put in some more tones. The only beat that I find useful is the String Quartet(number 99). I sometimes use this a metronome. My final complaint has to do with the speakers. I know that this synth was made for the mass-market, but come on. The speakers make the synth look amateurish.

All in all, I am very happy with my Casio CTK-611 and so, I give it a 5.
