It also weighs only 24 pounds and can run on batteries, so that makes this a super portable instrument that you can take anywhere.

The PXS-3000, is compatible with the CHORDANA play app which also works with the S-1000, that is a keyboard in the same line. It’s a step below from this one, with few less features.

Superior collection of sounds and rhythms of multiple types

The PX-S3000 has 700 tones and 200 rhythms.

The tones include Grand piano, electric pianos, organs and string sounds to name a few.

One cool thing to mention about this keyboard is it does have an input for expression pedal.

It also has several pads including synth pads and also choir sounds

In the “other categories”, there is a bunch of other kind of sounds, so you have everything from wind instruments to a lot of world instruments, with interesting things like the sitar.

The rhythm and accompaniment features on this keyboard are pretty typical, standard things.

When you play chords, the keyboard will recognize the harmonies and it will adjust the accompaniment patterns.

You also have the liberty to play the rhythms without the accompaniment pattern.

Touch Sensitive Button Functions

Another cool thing about this keyboard is that you can start and stop the rhythms and also add in files and intro and endings with the keys.

If you want you can even do it with the buttons, which is standard. The low ‘F’ will start the beat and stop it, then the ‘E’ key will sync the ending, so it will go to the pre-program ending. Then ‘D’ is for normal and ‘C’ is for variations.

You can also switch between accompaniment and rhythm using the keyboard as well so the low ‘A’ will switch

Recording and Play-ability

Next, we have the recording feature that will allow you to record yourself playing and also the rhythm track as well including any fills and any variations that you wish to add.

This piano does have pitch bend and it has 2 knobs, which can be used to control various settings, the top one is used to control cut off. The buttons are all touch sensitive, really easy to use.

With the down arrow you go to the rhythm menu, which has all the rhythm tracks that you can use in your song.

Additional Features Of Casio Privia PX-S3000

PX S3000 is loaded with features such as split mode, arpeggiator and layer.

It has DSP effects, including classic things like chorus, flanger, tremolo and several others. There is also AMP cabinet simulators as well.

Below control you have the registration menu which has various banks that you can store your sounds in, so you get everything dialed up, you get it exactly like you want and then you can recall things.

It includes a damper pedal and a sustain pedal input for a pedal unit, there is also an audio end which is an eighth inch, so if you want to play the music that you are practicing there is a MP3 you can plug it in and it will play through the speakers and you can practice to it.

There is also an expression pedal input. It does have a much needed headphone jack.

My Experience With Casio PX S3000

My Experience with Privia PX S3000

Without a doubt PX S3000 is a remarkable digital piano and its futuristic slim body and feather touch buttons really makes it stand out among its peers.

I used the piano for more than 10 days and I really fell in love with it (and with its other version PX S1000 too). The price tag is totally genuine and if you considering something latest and natural from Casio then PX S3000 might be one of the toughest contender to beat on the date (2019).

The knobs, sliders and bright display allows you to understand and take total control of your music.

Much smaller in size and has versatile design with more features as compared to the previous pianos of PRIVIA range.

That is all about the details of the Casio PX S3000 digital stage piano. 

In my suggestion, this piano is worth all your time, effort and money as it is bound to give you maximum satisfaction in all parameters.

    Thank you for a very helpful review Daniel.
    I have owned several 88-note digital pianos, starting with an expensive Kurzweil console in 1990, then a Yamaha Clavinova (free from Yamaha in 1995), then a higher-end Casio in 2003, and more recently, a Yamaha MOXF8, a Kronos 88, a Casio PX-5S and a Casio PX-560. I have sold all but the old Casio and the PX-560; I also own a 76-note Yamaha Tyros 5, a Yamaha PSR-S650 arranger, a Ketron X1 arranger plus a few vintage synths.
    I play mostly pop ballads and hardly gig anymore but am considering replacing the PX-560 with a PX-S3000, although the 3000 has less features (no Hex layers, display…). In your opinion, is the action on the 3000 a big enough improvement over the 560 to justify the purchase? A better option for me may be getting something like a Casio GP-400, Dexibell H7 or Kawai mainly for a very good action and piano/EP sounds but I don’t feel these hybrids are quite there yet and they’re too expensive and heavy to turn around and sell in 2-3 years. Your input would be greatly appreciated.
