Casio Leak New Synth Pic For NAMM

Casio sort of stole the  synth part of the show last NAMM with their new XW range of keyboards, taking them back into the synthesizer market after a long time away were the XW-P1 and XW-G1.

We've acquired an image of something that is new for NAMM too - not looking like the full XW thing, but certainly has a flavour of it and we're told it has "the most powerful synth Casio have ever built".

You'll have to wait unti the show itself to see what exactly Casio have in mind, but we'll be there of course.

Come oooonnnn phase distortion!

Phase distortion! Phase distortion! Phase distortion!

Actually, anything new and different would be great! But we all know it's going to be another ROMpler. Maybe we'll have a Tom Brislin demo to make it fun, at least.

Couple of things, I'd love it to be a CZ / PD something but: 1) Its too big to be dedicated to that purpose 2) It has those drawbar / knobs that last years XW / PW synths had 3) It looks more like a workstation to attract all those that couldn't afford / justify a Jupiter / Kronos

I hope I'm wrong though...

XW-P1 and XW-G1... The two are very boring for me... No innovation. What is yet to come? T he ipad now sounds better than most of the digital hardware. A "Super Synth" you get for 8 euros ...

Chris, I guess you have not played around with either keyboard cause the sounds are awesome and nowhere near what an iPad can do in sound quality and functionality while playing live.

Mono synth. Polysynth. Step sequencer Arpeggiator Hex Layer Phrase sequencer

If this new Casio is better than the XW-P1 or the XW-G1 then I want one. :-)
