Introduction
Congratulations upon your selection of this CASIO musical instrument. This keyboard provides you with the following features
and functions.
❐ 620 Tones Include Rich Advanced Tones
A total of 400 Advanced Tones are programmed with DSP tones to make them richer and more powerful. Advanced tones like
Stereo Piano and Tremolo Electric Piano enhance the Piano and Electric Piano tones to create a totally new sound.
❐ 50 Drawbar Organ Tones
In addition to the 620 standards tones, the keyboard also includes 50 realistic drawbar organ tones. Drawbar organ tones can be
controlled using nine digital drawbars. You can also select percussion or key click, and even edit the parameters of preset tone
and save up to 100 original tones in user tone memory.
❐ Flash Memory
Built-in Flash memory lets you expand your selection of tones and rhythms by downloading data from the CASIO MUSIC SITE,
or by the CD-ROM that comes bundled with the keyboard. You can also store up to 200 SMF format music files for playback.
❐ PIANO SETTING Button
The press of a button optimizes the keyboard setup for piano play.
❐ 166 Preset Rhythms + 16 User Rhythms

You can also transfer accompaniment data from your computer and store up to 16 of them as user rhythms in keyboard memory.
❐ Auto Accompaniment
Simply play a chord and the corresponding rhythm, bass and chord parts play automatically. One-touch Preset instantly recalls
the most suitable tone and tempo settings to match the rhythm you are using.
❐ Big, Information-packed Display
A big built-in display shows chord names, tempo setting, keyboard information, staff notation of notes played, and more for full
support of all your keyboard play. A built-in backlight keeps the display easy to read, even in total darkness.
❐ Song Memory
Record up to six parts in memory, along with their tone, volume, pan position, and other parameters for later playback. Realistic
ensemble play can also be created using the Auto Accompaniment function.
❐ Synthesizer Mode
Edit built-in sounds to produce your own original creations. Up to 120 of your own sounds can be stored in memory for recall,
just like the built-in tones.
❐ General MIDI compatibility
The General MIDI tones of this keyboard let you connect to a personal computer to enjoy “desktop music” capabilities. This
keyboard can be used as a desktop music input device or sound source, and it's just the thing for playback of commercially
available pre-recorded General MIDI music software.
❐ Powerful effects
A collection of powerful effects, such as DSP, reverb, chorus, and more, give you total control over the type of sound you want.
You can even change the parameters of an effect to create your own, original effects. A 4-band equalizer is also included.

Saving Setups and Memory Contents
About Flash memory
Your keyboard comes with built-in Flash memory, which can
continue to hold data even when electrical power is totally
cut off. This means that even after batteries go completely
dead, you can attach the AC adaptor, turn on power, and still
recall data stored in memory.
You can back up keyboard memory contents and other data
using the media described below.
• SD Memory Card
See “Using an SD Memory Card” on page E-84.
• Floppy Diskette (WK-3800 only)
See “Using the Floppy Disk Drive (WK-3800 Only)” on page
E-85.
• Computer hard disk
See “Connection to a Computer” on page E-80.
E-16
IMPORTANT!
• When running under battery power, be sure to replace
batteries as soon as possible after the first signs of low
battery power (dim power indicator lamp, dim display
characters, etc.) Though the keyboard’s Flash memory
is non-volatile (which means that data is not lost when
power is interrupted), data can be lost if power suddenly
fails while data is being written to flash memory*.
* While storing or deleting user data, while recording
with the synthesizer, while transferring data from a
computer, etc.
Initializing the Keyboard
Initialization can be used to return keyboard parameters to
their initial factory default settings, or to delete all data
currently in keyboard memory. See page E-74 for more
information about initialization.
Returning the keyboard to its initial factory defaults
You can use the CD-ROM that comes with the keyboard and
your computer to return the keyboard’s flash memory and
all of its parameters to their initial factory default settings.
See “Bundled CD-ROM Data” on page E-82 for details.

• When one of the drum sets is selected (tone numbers
600 through 619), each keyboard key is assigned a
different percussion sound. See the separate Appendix
B for details.
Polyphony
The term polyphony refers to the maximum number of notes
you can play at the same time. The keyboard has 32-note
polyphony, which includes the notes you play as well as the
rhythms and auto-accompaniment patterns that are played
by the keyboard. This means that when a rhythm or autoaccompaniment pattern is being played by the keyboard, the
number of notes (polyphony) available for keyboard play is
reduced. Also note that some of the tones offer only 10-note
polyphony.
Changing Tones and Configuring
DSP Effect Settings
This keyboard has only a single DSP sound source. Because
of this, selecting tones for which DSP is enabled for multiple
parts when layering or splitting tones (pages E-66, 67) can
cause conflicts. To avoid conflicts, DSP is allocated to the last
DSP enabled tone, and DSP is disabled (DSP line OFF) for all
other parts.
DSP line is a parameter that controls whether or not the
currently selected DSP effect is applied to a part.* Each tone
has a DSP line parameter. Selecting a tone for a part applies
the tone’s DSP line parameter setting to all parts.
* The DSP line parameter is turned on (DSP effect is applied)
for the 400 Advanced Tones numbered 000 through 399,
and turned off (DSP effect not applied) for the 200 preset
tones from 400 to 599. For information about other tones,
see “Tone Types” on page E-19.

Using the MODULATION
Modulation applies vibrato, which modulates the pitch of a
note. It works best with notes that are sustained (held) by
keeping a keyboard key held down, especially when playing
the melody with a violin or other similar tone.
You can modify the modulation effect using DSP parameter
0 through 7. For more information, see “DSP Parameters” on
page E-28.
• WK-3800/WK-8000
To use the MODULATION Wheel
1
Using the PITCH BEND Wheel
• The amount of vibrato applied depends on how far
you rotate the MODULATION wheel upwards.
Setting the wheel to its neutral position (rotated as
far downwards as it can go) turns vibrato off.
As its name suggests, the PITCH BEND wheel lets you “bend”
the pitch of a sound. This makes it possible to add a touch of
realism to saxophone and other tones.
To use the PITCH BEND wheel
1
While playing melody notes with your right hand,
rotate the MODULATION wheel with your left
hand to apply vibrato to the notes.
• WK-3300
To use the MODULATION button
While holding down a keyboard key with your right
hand, use your left hand to rotate the PITCH BEND
wheel up and down.
• Releasing the PITCH BEND wheel returns the note
to its original pitch.
NOTE
• With saxophone and electrical guitar tones, the most
realistic sounding effects can be produced if you play
notes and operate the PITCH BEND wheel
simultaneously.
• See “Pitch Bend Range (Initial Default: 12)” on page
E-74 for changing the bend range of the PITCH BEND
wheel.
• Never turn on keyboard power while the PITCH BEND
wheel is rotated.
1
While holding down a keyboard key with your right
hand, use your left hand to press the
MODULATION button.
• Vibrato is applied as long as the MODULATION
button is depressed.
NOTE
• Modulation can be used to add greater expression to
sustained melody notes being played using a violin,
synthetic reed, or other similar tone.
• Modulation affects different tones in different ways.
E-21
Using the Drawbar Organ Mode
Your keyboard has built-in “drawbar organ tones” that can be altered using nine digital drawbars whose operations are similar to
the controls on a drawbar organ. You can also select percussion or key click. There is room in memory for storage of up to 100
user-created drawbar tone variations.

Use the [+] and [–] buttons or number buttons to
select the type of DSP you want.
• See the separate Appendix E for information about
the DSP types that are available.
• Here you could also change the parameters of the
effect you selected, if you want. See “Changing the
Settings of DSP Parameters” for more information.
NOTE
• The DSP type display area shows the DSP number (000
to 199), or “ton” (user tone created using DSP).
DSP Parameters
The following describes the parameters for each DSP.
DSP
■ Parameter 0 to 7
These parameters differ in accordance with the algorithm*
of the selected DSP type. For details, see the separate
Appendix E, and the “algorithmlist_e.pdf” file in the
“English” folder on the CD-ROM that comes with your
keyboard.
* Effector structure and operation type
■ DSP Reverb Send (Range: 000 to 127)
Specifies how much of the post-DSP sound should be sent
to reverb.
■ DSP Chorus Send (Range: 000 to 127)
Specifies how much of the post-DSP sound should be sent
to chorus.
E-28
Applying Effects to Tones
NOTE
• Whether or not an effect is applied to the parts that are
sounding also depends on Mixer Mode Reverb Send,
Chorus Send, and DSP on/off settings. See “Mixer
Function” on page E-40 for more information.
• Playing a demo tune (page E-12) automatically changes
the effect to the one that is assigned to the tune. You
cannot change or cancel a demo tune effect.
• Changing the effect setting while sound is being output
by the keyboard causes a slight break in the sound when
the effect changes.
• A number of tones, called “Advanced Tones”,
automatically turn on the DSP line for richer, higher
quality sound. If you assign an Advanced Tone to a
keyboard part (Channels 1 through 4), the DSP line turns
on automatically and the DSP selection changes in
accordance with the settings of the Advanced Tone. Also,
the Mixer Mode DSP line on/off setting for the keyboard
part to which the Advanced Tone is assigned is turned
on.*
* The Mixer DSP line setting is automatically turned off
for each part that does not have an Advanced Tone
assigned.
Because of this, DSP effects previously applied to
these parts are cancelled, which can make their tone
sound different. In this case, display the Mixer screen
and turn DSP back on.
Saving the Settings of DSP
Parameters
You can save up to 100 modified DSPs in the user area for
later recall when you need them.

About the DSP Button
Checking the DSP button will tell you whether or not DSP is
enabled for the tone that is currently selected for a part. The
DSP button will be lit for a tone that is DSP enabled (DSP line
ON), and unlit for a tone that is DSP disabled (DSP line OFF).
For example, when you move each part while using the split/
layer function, the DSP button lights or goes out in accordance
with that parts setting.
Pressing the DSP button toggles the tone of the part you are
currently playing on the keyboard between enabled (DSP line
ON) and disabled (DSP line OFF).

This accompaniment method provides a total of 38 different
chord types: the 15 chord types available with FINGERED
plus 23 additional types. The keyboard interprets any input
of three or more keys that matches a FULL RANGE CHORD
pattern to be a chord. Any other input (that is not a FULL
RANGE CHORD pattern) is interpreted as melody play.
Because of this, there is no need for a separate accompaniment
keyboard, so the entire keyboard, from end to end, functions
as a melody keyboard that can be used for both melody and
chords.

About Auto Harmonize notes and
tones
The notes you play on the keyboard are called “melody
notes”, while the notes added to the melody by Auto
Harmonize is called the “harmonize notes”. Auto Harmonize
normally uses the tone you selected for the melody notes as
the tone for the harmonize notes, but you can use the Mixer
(page E-40) to specify a different tone for the harmonize notes.
The harmonize note tone is assigned to Mixer Channel 5, so
change Channel 5 to the tone you want to use for the

Mixer Function
What you can do with the Mixer
This keyboard lets you play multiple different musical
instrument parts at the same time during autoaccompaniment play, song memory playback, receipt of data
through the USB port, etc. The Mixer assigns each part to a
separate channel (1 through 16) and lets you control the
channel on/off, volume, and pan pot parameters of each
channel.
In addition to channels 1 through 16, the Mixer also has a
DSP channel that you can use to adjust the DSP level, DSP
pan, and other DSP parameters.
Channel Assignments
See pages E-66 to E-68 for information on layered, split, and
layered/split tones.
See page E-53 for information on the song memory.
NOTE
• Normally, keyboard play is assigned to Channel 1. When
Auto Accompaniment is being used, each part of the
accompaniment is assigned to Channels 6 through 10.
• When this keyboard is being used as the sound source
for an externally connected computer or other MIDI
device, all 16 channels are assigned musical instrument
parts. The notes played over the channel selected by
operation under “Turning Channels On and Off” below

How Parameters Work
The following are the parameters whose settings can be
changed in the Parameter Edit Mode.
Tone Parameters
■ Octave Shift (Range: –2 to 0 to +2)
You can use octave shift to shift the range of the tone up or
down. When using the piccolo tone, there may be cases when
very high notes you want to play are not included within the
range of the keyboard. When this happens, you can use octave
shift to shift the keyboard range one octave up.
■ Tone
(Range: 000 to 903, Drawbar organ tones 000 to 199)
This parameter controls the tones assigned to each part.
Anytime the tone is on the display, you can use the TONE
button or DRAWBAR ORGAN button and then select a
different tone, if you want.
S t . G r Pno
■ Part On/Off (Settings: on, oFF)
This parameter can be used to turn each part on (sounds)
and off (does not sound). The current on/off status of each
part is indicated on the display as described below.
Ch a n n e l
■ Volume (Range: 000 to 127)
This is the parameter that controls the volume of the selected
channel.
V o l ume
■ Pan Pot (Range: –64 to 00 to +63)
This parameter controls the pan pot, which is the center point
of the left and right stereo channels. Setting “00” specifies
center, a value less than “00” moves the point left, and a value
greater than “00” moves it right.

NOTE
• Changing the tone, volume, pan pot, coarse tune, fine
tune, reverb send, or chorus send setting causes the
corresponding MIDI message to be output from the USB
port.
• Changing the tone settings changes the tone, octave
shift, reverb send, chorus send, and DSP line* parameter
settings.
* When DSP is off (See the NOTE on page E-29).

Synthesizer Mode
The Synthesizer Mode of this keyboard provides the tools
for creating your own original tones. Simply select one of the
built-in tones and change its parameters to create your own
original sound. You can even store your sounds in memory
and select it using the same procedure as that used to select a
preset tone.
Synthesizer Mode Functions
The following describes how to use each of the functions
available in the Synthesizer Mode.
(1) Tone Characteristic Waveform
■ Tone Setting
Specifies which of the preset tones should be used as the
original tone.
(2) Volume Characteristic Parameters
These parameters control how the tone changes over time,
from when the keyboard key is pressed until the tone decays.
You can specify changes in volume and sound characteristics.
■ Attack time
Synthesizer Mode Parameters
The preset tones that are built into this keyboard consist of a
number of parameters. To create a user tone, you first recall a
advanced tone (000 to 399) or a preset tone (400 to 599) and
then change its parameters to change it to your own tone.
Note that drum set tones (600 through 619) cannot be used as
the basis of a user tone.
The illustration nearby shows the parameters that make up
the preset tones and what each parameter does. As can be
seen in the illustration, parameters can be divided into four
groups, each of which is described in detail below.
This is the rate or time it takes for the tone to reach its highest
volume level. You can specify a fast rate, where the tone
reaches its highest volume level immediately, a slow rate
where it gradually rises, or something in between.
■ Release time
This is the rate or time it takes for the tone volume to fall to
zero. You can specify a release that ranges from a sudden fall
to zero, to one that gradually falls to zero.

■ Cutoff Frequency
The cutoff frequency is a parameter for adjusting timbre by
cutting any frequency that is higher than a specific frequency.
A larger cutoff frequency produces a brighter (harder) timbre,
while a smaller frequency produces a darker (softer) timbre.

NOTE
• Note that the tone whose parameter you can edit is the
one assigned to the channel (1 through 4) that is currently
selected with the Synthesizer Mode.

(3) Tone Pitch Parameters
■ Vibrato Type, Vibrato Delay, Vibrato Rate, Vibrato
Depth
These parameters adjust the vibrato effect, which causes
periodic changes in the tone.
■ Octave Shift
This parameter controls the octave of all tones.
(4) Tone Characteristic Setting Parameters
■ Level
This parameter controls the overall volume of the tone.
■ Touch Sense
This parameter controls changes in volume and timbre in
accordance with the relative amount of pressure applied to
the keyboard keys. You can specify more volume for stronger
pressure and less volume or a lighter pressure, or you can specify
the same volume regardless of how much pressure is applied to
the keys.
■ Reverb Send, Chorus Send, DSP Line , DSP Type, DSP
Parameter
These parameters control the effects applied to tones.

Saving User Tones
The group of tone numbers from 700 through 799 (User 001 through User 100) is called the “user area” because they are reserved for
storage of user tones. After you recall a preset tone and change its parameters to create your own user tone, you can store it in the user
area for later recall. You can recall your tones using the same procedure that you use when selecting a preset tone.

*1: You can select any Advanced Tone, preset tone, or user tone. User tone areas 700 through 799 initially contain the same data
as advanced tones 000 through 099.
*2: Area where data transferred from computer is stored (see “Internet Data Expansion System” on page E-82). After transfer,
you can use the keyboard to edit parameters, but you can only overwrite existing parameters. You cannot save the data to
another number.
*3: Area where data transferred from computer is stored (see “Internet Data Expansion System” on page E-82). Transfer only is
allowed, and no parameter editing is allowed.
*4: User tones created by modifying parameters of one of the preset tones (000 to 049). User drawbar organ tone areas initially
contain two sets of the same data as drawbar organ tones types 000 through 049.
NOTE
• You can create an original tone using a user tone that includes a waveform (tone number 800 to 819). In this case, the
storage area is the same as the source tone area. For example, an original tone created using tone number 800 as a source
tone is stored in user area number 800.

■ Vibrato Waveform (Range: See below.)
■ Touch Sensitivity (Range: –64 to 00 to +63)
Specifies the vibrato waveform.
This parameter controls changes in the volume of the tone in
accordance with the pressure applied to the keyboard keys. A
greater positive value increases the volume of the output as
pressure increases, while a negative value decreases volume
with increased keyboard pressure. A setting of zero specifies
no change in output volume in accordance with keyboard

Keyboard song memory records and plays back much like a
standard tape recorder. There are a total of six tracks, each of
which can be recorded separately. Besides notes, each track
can have its own tone number. Then when you play back the
tracks together, it sounds like an entire six-piece band. During
playback, you can adjust the tempo to change the speed of
playback.

NOTE
• With this keyboard, Track 1 is the basic track, which
can be used to record keyboard play, along with Auto
Accompaniment. Tracks 2 through 6 can be used for
keyboard play, so they are called melody tracks. Tracks
2 through 6 are used to add other parts to what is
recorded in Track 1.
• Note that each track is independent of the others. This
means that even if you make a mistake while recording,
you only need to re-record the track where the mistake
was made.
• You can use different Mixer settings for each track (page

(16th note in this example).
Rest
Hold down [0] and then use number buttons [1] through [9]
to specify the length of the rest.
Example: To input an eighth note rest, hold down [0] and press
[4].
• Pressing the [왘] CURSOR button inputs rests up to the
beginning of the next measure.
Track 1 Step Recording Variations
The following describes a number of different variations you
can use when recording to Track 1 using step recording. All
of these variations are based upon the procedure described
under “To record chords with step recording” on page E-57.
To start accompaniment with an intro pattern
In step 4, press INTRO/ENDING 1 or INTRO/ENDING 2
button after the SYNCHRO/FILL-IN NEXT button.
To switch to a rhythm variation
In step 5, press VARIATION/FILL-IN 1 or VARIATION/
FILL-IN 2 button immediately before inputting the chord.
To insert a fill in
In step 5, press VARIATION/FILL-IN 1 or VARIATION/
FILL-IN 2 button at the measure or beat immediately before
the chord or beat where you want to insert the fill in.
To insert an ending
In step 5, press INTRO/ENDING 1 or INTRO/ENDING 2
button at the measure or beat immediately before the chord
where you want to insert the ending.
IMPORTANT!
• The length of the ending depends on the rhythm you
are using. Check the length of the pattern you are using
and set the length of the chord accordingly in step 6.
Making the chord too short in step 6 can result in the
ending pattern being cut off.
To step record chords without rhythm
Skip step 4. The specified chord of the length specified by
the number buttons is recorded. A rest can be specified here,
so an original chord pattern can be created.
To add chord accompaniment part way through rhythm
play
In place of step 4 at the start of the recording, press
VARIATION/FILL-IN 1 or VARIATION/FILL-IN 2 button
and input rests. Then in step 5, input the chords. Only rhythm
is played where you input the rests, and then chord play starts
after the rests.
Recording Multiple Tracks
Track 1 of the keyboard’s song memory records Auto
Accompaniment and keyboard play. In addition, there are
five other melody tracks that you can use to record melody
parts only. You can record different tones to the melody tracks
and build a full ensemble of instruments for your recordings.
The procedure you use for recording to Tracks 2 through 6 is
identical to the one you use when recording to Track 1.

Using Split
With split you can assign two different tones (a main tone
and a split tone) to either end of the keyboard, which lets
you play one tone with your left hand and another tone with
your right hand. For example, you could select GM STRINGS
1 as the main (high range) tone and GM PIZZICATO as the
split (low range) tone, putting an entire string ensemble at
your fingertips.
Split also lets you specify the split point, which is the location
on the keyboard where the changeover between the two tones
occurs.
Example: To specify G3 as the split point, press the G3
key.

Transposing the Keyboard
Using Touch Response
Transpose lets you raise and lower the overall key of the
keyboard in semitone units. If you want to play an
accompaniment for a vocalist who sings in a key that’s
different from the keyboard, for example, simply use
transpose to change the key of the keyboard.
When touch response is turned on, the relative volume of
sound output by the keyboard is varied in accordance with
the amount of pressure applied, just like an acoustic piano.

NOTE
• The keyboard can be transposed within a range of –24
(two octave downwards) to +24 (two octave upwards).
• The transpose setting also affects playback from song
memory and Auto Accompaniment.
• The allowable pitch range you can transpose within
depends on the tone you are using. When transpose
results in a note that is higher than the allowable pitch
range, the keyboard replaces the note with one of the
following.
• The nearest note in the allowable pitch range
(regardless of the pitch of the original note)
• The same note in the nearest octave of the allowable
pitch range
In the case of a note that is lower than the allowable
pitch range, the note is replaced with the nearest note
in the allowable pitch range (regardless of the pitch of
the original note).
• After using Transpose to raise the keyboard to a high
key, notes played at the highest range of the keyboard
may not sound properly for certain tones.
Touch
3
Use the [+] and [–] buttons to select the touch
response sensitivity level.

sensitivity to the “2” setting.
• When you select “oFF”, the tone does not change
regardless of how much pressure you apply to the
keyboard.

sound source, it also is output as MIDI data.
• Song Memory playback, accompaniment, and external
MIDI note data do not affect the touch response setting.

Using the SMF Player
The letters “SMF” stand for Standard MIDI File, which is a file format that allows MIDI data to be shared between different
software and sequencers. There are actually three SMF formats, named SMF 0, SMF 1, and SMF 2. This keyboard supports the
SMF 0 format, which is the one that is most widely used today, and so all mentions of “SMF data” in this manual refer to SMF 0
format data.
You can use your computer to transfer SMFs from the bundled CD-ROM to keyboard flash memory, or SMFs you have downloaded
from the CASIO MUSIC SITE. SMF format music data can be stored in the keyboard’s built-in Flash memory. Data stored in Flash
memory can be played back using the SMF Player Mode. You can also load SMF data from an SD memory card or floppy diskette
into the keyboard’s user area and then play it back using the SMF Player Mode. See “Saving Data” on page E-83 for details.
The follow shows the maximum number of files that can be stored on each type of media.
Flash Memory*1: 200 files*2
SD Memory Card: 255 files*2
Floppy Diskette (WK-3800 only): 112 (2DD diskette)*2 or 224 (2HD diskette) files*2
*1 Initially, your keyboard comes with three sample SMF tunes in memory.

SERENDIPITY WALTZ
002

*2 Note that the number of files you can store in memory also depends on the size of each file. If your files are very large, you may
be able to store fewer than the number of files indicated above.
IMPORTANT!
• Note that CASIO COMPUTER CO., LTD. shall not be held liable for any loss of data stored in Flash memory, or on an SD
