It's kind of crappy to play, but I've taken many samples from it which sound great! Particularly the bass drum sound, which, because of it's sound is great for making funky electronic basslines! Great hi hat and cymbal too. And yes, I agree the chord buttons are fantastic!

The most amzing thing about this little box of tricks is the chords - absolutely spiffing. I plug it througn an guitar effects processor and it is capable of producing some amazing sounds.

I was given a new pt-30 in the spring of 1983. I'm a guitarist, can't play keys worth a darn, but I still have fun plugging this tiny little casio into my guitar fx. I've used it plenty of times in my recording projects; in fact I used the waltz rhythm and the organ sound on my new cd. My pt-30 is a bit yellowed and grungy looking now, and sometimes it won't turn on unless I unplug it and plug it back in again, but what the heck, it was free and still useful after almost 20 years. A bargain.

The PT-30 is an unusual synth with unusual features which I liked a lot until I realized that it didn't sound very good.

I give it 4/5 considering its time. When I bought mine (new) about 15 years ago it was average (well, average-cheap) compared to the rest of the Casio product line; the only polyphonic Casio synth was the amazing VL-1 (if I remember well; I have read on the net the VL-1 is monophonic). The sequencer and the one key play are excellent; you can even change playback speed. My mother uses it to teach music at school.

The PT-30 can transpose the keyboard and change the tempo of the rhytm patterns, and combine chords (of many kinds) and rhytm patterns.

If the PT-30 were a contemporary product, I would rate it 1.5/5, not 1 because of the useful features.

Just picked up this cool little box. I like the cheap rhythm sounds. The chord section is fun as well. This makes a great preset drum box and if you dig the old Casio sounds , this little guy is write up your alley. The cool feature that struck me , was the 1/4 output jack, so I can use a regular cord to go into the mixer. Smart thinking , Casio !!
