The Casio XW-P1 Synthesizer seems to have come out of nowhere. The last real Casio synth came out in something like 1988 and, as a result, a lot of readers that have experience with vintage 80’s Casio synths are excited by the announcement.
Here are preliminary specs for the Casio XW-P1 synth:
- The XW-P1 is a hybrid Lead and Groove Synth;
- Mono solo section with up to six oscillators: two virtual analog, two PCM, noise, and external audio;
- Poly section with ‘a wide variety of gig- ready sounds’;
- Drawbar organ mode;
- Nine-track step sequencer with dedicated drum track.
The rumored price for the Casio XW-P1 is $699.
