Fairly good keyboard for it's price. You can create several of your own sounds with this, but it's not that flexible (you have an odd to use implementation of ASDR, pan, level, touch sensitivity, and pitch), but overall it's not an ideal synthesizer by any means.

Basically has all your MIDI instruments, and the samples used for the instruments are pretty good.

There is a very neat trick you can do with this baby though that raised my rating from 3 to 4. First, transpose it up an entire octave. Then set the pitch bend wheel to bend in full octaves. Choose a tone that has sustains until you release the key/pedal (strings, brass, woodwinds), strike the highest C and slowly bend up. The sound suddenly makes all sorts of weird blips and distortions as you slowly go up. Neat to mess with if you can somehow get rid of the accompaning high squeal.

Really nice MIDI keyboard, it's August 2K1 and i'm still using it with 'top of the line' programs like nuendo 1.5, halion 2001, reason, etc. It's very likely to last for about 5 years more since the materials and construction is really well done. Best Buy ! . Sounds Great, and for the price, go and just buy it :)

I bought the Casio WK-1200 as a replacement for my Casio CTK-501 (I needed General MIDI Compatibility). For its cost of $300, you can't do better. I have never seen a more advanced model with the sound quality of the WK-1200 for less than $1000. It's Great for General MIDI, and it's very good for my composing. I've had it a while now and havn't experienced any problems with it at all. The manual's Very clear and you almost won't need it to use the keyboard effectiveley. I like that the pedal jack can be made to do different functions, and A+ on the Sound Quality and Touch Sensitivity. Is Great for General MIDI. I'd recoment it to anyone in the keyboard market.

I was looking for an inexpensive feature rich keyboard. You get a lot in a $300 package with this one. I've been happy with it since day one.

I think the casio WK-1200 is a great keyboard, from the internal sounds and the percussions, it is great, the only thing I have found is the keys click and fell like they are hitting something at imes and it can be annoying, I m in the process of trying to find out if anyone else is haveing this problem, I have contacted tech support, but no response yet
