Hi; I'm a scientist using the HT-700 to generate acoustic waves for an R&D project/invention. Beats spending $1,200 for an arbitrary waveform generator! One thing I like is the analog pitch adjustment on the back. The RAM card is great too - but I have no clue where to get more of them... I ordered a new manual from Casio for free. The number is 973-328-1670. They were very nice about sending it to me (takes a couple of weeks, though). I also use my HT-700 for drum accompaniament for my 2 pc blues band, the Blues Nubians, and my country band, The Mud Flaps.

When my father first bought the HT-700, I was about 7 years old. I never took playing it seriously until I was about 13 years old. I think that the HK-700 has acted as a great learning tool as well as a good professional instrument as well. I am 15 now and I play just for fun, but the HT-700 has proved to be a worthy keyboard. With 32 changeable wavelengths, it can be really fun. And to everyone's surprise, I have all of the keys left on it! Well, if anyone can find Ram Cards, please email me.

Preety cool for a $50 at the pawn shop. For all those looking for a manual, send Casio a email. Just got mine 2 days ago and it definately explores some of the in depth editing features. Some cool sounds can be made by using the data wheel as a mod source. Ok stating the obvious here. Cheers

I bought an HT-700 at a secondhand shop recently for $100 Canadian (approx. 70 US dollars. Brand new condition... it even had the original Casio batteries in it. Man, I love this thing, it is sooooo cool! After playing with it in the shop for about 15 minutes, I saw the depth of this thing and knew that I had to have it. 32 different waveforms including the classic sawtooth, square, pulse, noise, and lots of squeaky-clean digital waves. There is a LOT of editing power hidden away under the hood of this thing. The waveforms can be filtered with a REAL VCF, which has its own traditional ADSR envelope generator, filter cutoff and filter depth parameters, and real filter resonance. There is a separate ADSR envelope generator for the DCA. Modulation of the oscillators is courtesy of a single LFO with these waveforms: sine, saw up, saw down, square, and random! All in all you've got a very versatile, yet simple-to-program, 8-note polyphonic synth. Memory is kinda JX3P style: 20 presets, 20 programmable slots, and this is just for the synth section. It also has the typical 80's Casio 3-part auto accompaniment section but there's more than meets the eye: ten more internal (as opposed to the preset patterns) are FULLY programmable. Yup, you can write a percussion part, a bass part and a chord part (2 measures) and store them in memory. You can even edit the chord sound right down to waveform and all the other synth parameters. Cool. Most of the preset sounds are pretty useless, but man o man start programming and this thing can sound amazing. You can also make it sound really cheesy if you want, which I do. Retro video game noises? No problem. Kraftwerk beeps, boops and buzzes? I've got em now. This is stuff that my Trinity, Prophecy etc etc etc just won't do, at least not this easily. Bottom line: I have not read many good reviews about this thing but I love mine and I'm going back to play with it right now because it's TOO COOL!!!
