A keyboard that plays the lead in stage or street performance. The solo Synthesizer reproduces the sound of traditional analog synthesizers. The hex layer can overlap up to six tonal variations to deliver intense sounds.

Features


Fully loaded, with features such as Solo Synthesizer and Hex Layer producing 
a powerful sound and overwhelming presence



 

Hybrid Processing Sound Source

The XW incorporates CASIO's newly developed Hybrid Processing sound engine, which fuses an LSI sound source with a high-performance CPU and DSP. The resulting varied tones cross the borders between genres. Synth tones that are frequently used in live performances and Drawbar Organ tones are all at your disposal, contributing to impressively expressive performances.


 

High sound production from over 2,000 built-in waveforms

A varied collection of 311 synthesizer waveforms has been reproduced from traditional analog synthesizer waveforms and built in. Full use of the Sliders and knobs enables intuitive sound creation by selecting among the 2,158 assorted available waveforms — including waveforms from the CZ synthesizer series of masterpiece instruments of the past. Tones can be changed freely in the course of a performance, moreover, supporting demonstration of awesome power during live performances as well.

 


 

Diverse range of top-quality preset tones

  • Solo Synthesizer (100 tones)

Reproduction of the tones employed by traditional analog synthesizers provides access to 100 preset tones dynamically employed in live stage performances. Preset sounds range from the crisp edge of a lead guitar to solid brass tones. Specialized Solo Synthesizer effects such as a ring modulator and delay are also incorporated.

  • Hex Layer (50 tones)

Overlapping of up to six tonal varieties achieves an intense sound with remarkable presence. A new realm of powerful, dynamically expressive performances is opened up to give your creativity free rein.

  • Drawbar Organ (50 tones)

Nine slider switches operate with a drawbar feel to provide a variety of organ sounds. A diverse selection of 50 drawbar settings for various musical genres is also preset. 

  • PCM tones (420 tones)

PCM tones of superior-quality acoustic musical instruments, ranging from piano and guitar to a drum set, are all built in.

 


 

High-quality sound creation with 6 oscillator blocks (Solo Synth tones)

Six oscillator units comprising the core of the synthesizer feature two Synth OSC blocks and two PCM OSC blocks for PCM tone and rhythm waveform selection as well as a Noise block for producing a variety of noises and an External Sound Input block for intake of such sound sources as digital audio equipment. The resulting ability to raise the volume to higher levels enables you to achieve denser, more powerful sounds.

* Monophonic only in the Solo Synthesizer mode.
* Original user-generated waveforms are selectable with the XW-G1.
