Hey everyone

A couple of years ago, I purchased a Casio CTK-551 keyboard. I used it mainly for the drum sounds but now I want to get into playing the piano for real. The only thing is, when I play it, it doesnt...sounds like a piano? It sound like a keyboard. I know that it IS a keyboard but I just wanted to know why it doesnt have that piano sound. For example, when I listen to music by bands and artist that are piano based, it sounds totally different. I understand that their sound has been produced and all but...I dont know, I find it hard to write music when I cant get that piano feel from the keyboard.

Anyways, after boring you with that, my point was to ask is it just the keyboard and that I need a better one, or is it something I am doing wrong?

Thanks for any help!

You have the right idea, the casio general midi keyboards are very stale and generic sounding. You just need some better piano samples.
