Believe it or not, I do think Casio's are better. I own two, a CTK-601, and a WK-1630.

Uh, yeah, I messed up with the FM synthesis part.

I've tried all the banks on version two, and played all the sounds. I still don't like them compared to the 232 or so standard on my WK-1630. Oh, and Casio's have back-lit displays, disk drives for midi's (saving, and playing, and doing stuff with Roland kb's) and sounds, and can save songs into internal RAM.

Another thing I forgot to mention that I don't like about the W5/7 is that, as far as I can tell, it has no rhythm patterns. My WK-1630 has 130 pre-done ones, plus I can make my own.

Oh, and I've played tons of different brands of synths. Rolands, Yamaha's, Korgs, Alesis (which are my second favorite, can't beat 1000 or so sounds), ReBirth, AWE64's, WinGroove, VSC, SB-16, Lowry Organs, and others.

Oh, and thanks for the info on disabling the touch-response. I'll fix the piano patch like that at school.

I disagree completely Andrew Hunt (below). Come on, do you really think Casio synths are better than Roland and Yamaha? What the hell are you talking about? Have you ever played anyhting other than you Casio? First of all, the W7 does not use FM at all. There is a voice edit button on the front of the synth for editing voices. You can disable the after touch by using the setup menu when you are in a multi and using 1 of a 4-layer setup , or by editing the individual sound and going to the control page. There are many voice disk's available for this synth that sound great, if you are unhappy with the 300 or so voices that come with it. Besides it is easy to edit together your own voices. You can record tracks using the record and start button. These are saved into RAM while the unit is switched on or onto floppy-disk. It sounds to me like you only tried out the GM voices which are a small sample of the total number of voices available. The display is backlit, so your unit must be broken. Honestly, this synth shits all over anything by Casio.

That last comment (the one giving it a 1/5) was from me, btw.
