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
A selection of 166 rhythms includes accompaniments for everything from rock to pops and jazz.
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

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
are shown on the displayed keyboard and staff.
The following shows the parts that are assigned to each of
the 16 channels.

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.

Tuning Parameters
You can use these parameters to tune each of the parts
individually.
■ Coarse Tune (Range: –24 to 00 to +24)
This parameter controls the coarse tuning of the selected
channel’s pitch in semitone units.

Effect Parameters
The Mixer lets you control the effects applied to each
individual part, making it different from the Effect Mode,
whose settings are applied to all parts in general.
■ DSP System Reverb Send (Range: 000 to 127)
This parameter adjusts how much reverb is applied to the
DSP part.
D . Rv bSnd
■ Reverb Send (Range: 000 to 127)
This parameter controls how much reverb is applied to a part.
A setting of “000” turns reverb off, while a setting of 127
applies maximum reverb.
• “Reverb Send” does not work with some drum sounds.
■ DSP System Chorus Send (Range: 000 to 127)
This parameter adjusts how much chorus is applied to the
DSP part.
Rv b Send
■ Chorus Send (Range: 000 to 127)
This parameter controls how much chorus send is applied to
a part. A setting “000” turns chorus send off, while a setting
of 127 applies maximum chorus send.
• “Chorus Send” does not work with drum sounds.
Ch o Se n d
■ DSP Line (Settings: on, oFF)
You can use this parameter to turn DSP line off for a particular
channel, or to turn it on.
D . Ch oSn d
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).
• Turning on the Mixer’s DSP Line parameter (on this
page) causes the settings of the DSP Pan, DSP System
Reverb Send, and DSP System Chorus parameters to
be used in place of the Pan Pot, Reverb Send, and
Chorus Send parameters.

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) ca
