I've now got two of these! Am I mad. I think not. The price of these is increasing so I got in now. Why? because the cheesiness in the sound is so appealing. I've just produced a remix of a DJ Shadowesque artist. He could not get enough of this. Apparently Coldcut have one that is modified to accept external sounds.

The filter is not great, many analogue keyboards have an external filter that does a better job but this adds a warmth to a signal and is great for messing up drum beats.

If you can find one I'd recommend it. It's got no midi so you'll have to play it into your pc/sampler.

Me and a friend got this keyboard back in 1985, and used it to make quite a few recording in our band. Now that I look back on the songs we did, the 400V brought an amazing quality to the music. We were able to do some real innovated things with it. The way the ADSR affected the accompaniment was real interesting, it let you perform some unusual effects and different textures. I no longer have the keyboard, I'm almost tempted to go on Ebay and try to buy one.

A wonderful instrument - especially routing the chords to the filter make it more deep than basic channel. Of course it has no midi but just sample it or record it to your computer. If you get it around 25 Euro (even it is hard to find) you won't regret it.

This thing is terrible, stay away from it unless you get it for under $10 or are looking for really bad digital toy sounds. I guess the filter is analog but calling it that is a stretch.

Real piece of junk, many children's toys sound better than this one.

Casio is the king of the unexpected and the MT-400v is no exception. Who would think that a small keyboard geared toward the home market would come with sliders for ADSR, filter cutoff and resonance, and tempo control for the stereo chorus or wah settings. Then let you apply those settings to the tone, rhythm, or bass sections. Plus a noise setting. Casio just never stop with innovations. The outboard speakers make this all the more fantastic. I have a large Casio collection and this is still one of my consistent favorites. Sounds are plastic but very deep. The filters are unusual and it is easy to mod the keyboard to allow external signals to be routed through the filter. Overall a must have for anyone curious about the power of Casio. This is the best hands on Casio I've got. Others may have more/different features but are generally all digitally controlled with button mashing. Nothing like grabbing a slider and tweaking the cheese.
