Song Sequencer for Complete Recordings:
16 tracks plus one system track are available for the recording of up to 5 songs. Each song can be (approximately) 30,000 notes in length. Each
instrument can be recorded onto its own track, and you can syncronise exactly with the auto accompaniment using the punch-in and punch-out feature (WK-7500 and CTK-7000 only). Perfect your recordings with the selection of edit functions, including event insert, event copy and event delete. The quantisation function means perfect
timing for every performance. You can also record note by note, including the note length with the step recording
function, then store and archive your
finished recordings as standard MIDI files on an SD memory card.
(WK-7500 and CTK-7000) Create your own accompaniment styles with the pattern sequencer, which allows you to edit a part of the rhythm or all elements.

The arpeggios are triggered by the player's harmony input, adding to the performance. This feature can enhance all styles of music, but is particularly useful for today's modern dance styles.

delay effects, 5 chorus effects and 100 DSP effects (delay, phaser, fl anger, wah-wah, rotary speaker and many others). You can then store these new creations in 100 storage locations.
The internal mixer allows detailed parameter changes across the 16 tracks for instruments, including the rhythm tracks, and 16 tracks for the sequencer. You can
change volume, panorama position, reverb send and further parameters separately for each channel.
(WK-7500 and CTK-7000) The audio recorder is a great new feature! You can record a human voice (using a microphone) or another real instrument into the keyboard and then play it together with your recordings in the song sequencer.

high-grade keyboards. This features adds realistic
pitch bend to guitar, saxophone and synth sounds, to
name just a few. The modulation button adds vibrato

creations from the song sequencer, pattern sequencer,
