You can download the rhythm files (singly or in bulk) from the PC to the keyboard's User Rhythm memory via the USB cable using the Data Manager software, or you can just copy them into the MUSICDAT folder on the SD Card plugged into the PC, then plug the SD Card into the keyboard and load them one-at-a-time into User Rhythm memory. The rhythm files must be loaded into User Rhythm memory in order to use them. They will not play directly from the SD Card like the MIDI files do.
BUT . . . Fortunately, a nice, thoughtful Forum member, who goes by the moniker of "Casiokid", had the foresite to download them from the Casio - Europe website, and then upload them to the file archives on this site. You will find them here:
They are free, but will just cost you a little time. They have to be downloaded one-at-a-time - no batch download on these. They are in the old ".ckf" format, but the new boards will accept them, as-is, either via the Data Manager software or directly from the SD Card and will automatically convert them to the new ".AC7" format as they are loaded into User Rhythm memory.
As for the "50 free new rhythm files" mentioned above, they were mostly Latin rhythms (not CTK-6300IN or CTK-7300IN). They originally appeared on the Casio-Europe site and spread to several other Casio regional sites. After several months, they were suddenly removed from all sites, without notice or explanation, so someone who had a copy, uploaded them to the CTK/WK File Downloads section on this forum, but I see that those have now also been removed. That tells me that there is probably a copyright issue with one or more of those files, so we will not press the issue here. I do not believe there were any files, in that set, that were what you are looking for.
The link in your quote above is for the Casio-Europe corporate site. The rhythm files in question were removed from all Casio corporate sites just a few months after they were posted. You can download a set of CTK/WK Rhythm files from the "Downloads" section of this forum at:
There are two ZIP file downloads there - an AC7 Rhythm ZIP file and a CKF Rhythm ZIP file. I recommend downloading both. The AC7 ZIP file contains 108 files, and includes what you seek, specifically, along with some Rhythm files from older CTK/WK models, as well as a few user generated Rhythm files. The CKF ZIP file contains 114 files that were originally for the older CTK/WK boards. These are not just copies of the factory pre-set Rhythms from the older boards, but are all official Casio after-market "expansion" Rhythm files, and are well worth the download. They are in the older CKF format, but the newer boards will load them directly, either via the Data Manager 6.1 software, or via the LOAD/SAVE function from the MUSICDAT folder of an SD Card. The keyboard's operating system will automatically convert them to the new AC7 format. There may be a few duplicates between these two file sets, but do not go just by file names. Actually load them and listen to them before you discard anything. Totally different sounding Rhythms by the same file name are not uncommon.
I've downloaded all the Dance styles available from that package, about 30... And well, i'm not impressed, a few sound really good! But most of them are just plain bad.. And i'm going to be honest and say that i don't think that the people at Casio know how to program a Dance style... Disco styles are awesome, but Dance/Trance/Rap? Not so much..Just listen for yourself, as i've demonstrated all the Dance/EDM type styles:
Perhaps that is why it was pulled from all the Casio sites. It originated on the Casio-Europe site, just like all the after-market Tones, Rhythms, Songs, etc. for the older WK-3XXX boards, but they are all still online. It is obvious that Casio Corporate was not the source of the new "50-Pack", and that it did not have their blessing. If it was, and did have, it would still be available for download from all of the sites. It has even disappeared from this site a couple of times, but somehow, it keeps magically reappearing. The set that is here now has lasted the longest.
Hi chaps,After browsing this forums for several days since I got my CTK 6200 for two weeks so found that you can't really create a new rhythm from scratch . My ideal instrument now would be CTK 7200 but I got a good deal on ebay for a few months used CTK 6200 for £100 delivered Yesterday, I was trying to convert the rhythms/styles from Korg PA series to the Casio CKF so that I could load this into my CTK 6200. My workflow is:01. Convert Korg PA style to Yamaha PSR 630 (SSF 1 styles which is actually midi file SMF format 0). I used Style Works XT style converter.02. Rename the converted file extension .STY to .MID03. Open the MIDI file in your sequencer (I used Cakewalk Pro 9 - old but very easy to use. You could use Anvil Studio free or something you're familiar with)04. Change the drum track(s) from Channel 9 to Channel 1005. Change bass track to Channel 1106. Tweaks tracks for Chord tracks 12 to 16 (***Issues see below)07. Test by connecting to your keyboard and playing each part as you hear the actual out from the Keyboard. (I actually connect the keyboard and set midi output of sequencer to keyboard before even opening converted file)08. Save the file of you're happy.09. Launch Casio Rhythm converter (part of IDES suit for last generation keyboards such as CTK 900 etc.) and open the converted style MIDI file10. Set the markers for Casio rhythm parts i.e. Intro, variation, ending, fill etc. according to what is marked in the midi file converted and marked for Yamaha style. The Rhythm converter needs the starting point and number of bars so actual sequence in the midi file doesn't matter as long as you specify the part correctly11. Convert to CKF rhythm by menu option Convert to Pattern which will save as Casio CKF file12. Copy to your SD card in the Casio specific folder13. Now load the rhythm (CKF) file in your keyboard in one of the user styles slot.14. Now play! and have fun!*** Issues:The Casio CKF file only support 5 tracks for auto-accompaniment rhythm* Channel 10: Drum track* Channel 11: Bass track* Channel 12: Chord 1 track* Channel 13: Chord 2 track* Channel 14: Chord 3 trackBut the new generation of keyboards (CTK 6000/6200/7000/7200) supports 8 tracks for a rhythm in new AC7 file format. Technically it supports:* Channel 10 to 14 similar to CKF format plus 2 more channels* Channel 15: Chord 4 track* Channel 16: Chord 5 trackwhich is great news and it makes the new generation Casio to stand with Yamaha, Roland and Korg in terms of style track counts.But right know I cannot utilise the track 15 and 16 due to stuck in the conversion from Midi to CKF. So I cannot transform the Korg PA styles to Casio rhythm completely and bound to exclude/ignore track 15 and 16.What I need is SMF(MIDI) to AC7 converter which has not seen the light of the day yet.
I have a Korg Pa 600, and a Casio CTK 4400. I wonder if any body has tried to convert ckf files to Korg styles?. All you have done is to convert korg styles to casio ckf, but how about ckf to Korg styles? You may have some ideas.
Sometimes your installed version of Casio Data Manager won't support your Casio Keyboard File file. If you do not have the proper version Casio Data Manager (or any of the other programs listed above), you may need to try downloading a different version of it, or one of the other software applications listed above. Your Casio Keyboard File file was probably created by a newer release of Casio Data Manager than what's currently installed your computer.
