mrjason's review"One of the best from Casio"

Casio XW-G1
The Casio XW-G1 is a 61 key synth, it is well made and has a futuristic look and finish to it. It has a 13 track sequencer on it and a backlit display. The XW-G1 has 6 oscillators on it, you can use it for gigging or for studio production. Each individual oscillator has a filter, key tracking, and LFO. Since I am a electronic music producer and dance music producer I was looking for a synth that had a good sampler built into it. You can load your samples up or save them to your Flash ROM. The sequencer on the XW-G1 almost made me want to stop sequencing on my computer that is just how easy it is to sequence on the XW-G1. I love how you can change your performance up and mix quickly. It is so easy to change your filters and add effects on the XW-G1.

UTILIZATION

The general set up of the XW-G1 could not be any easier, it will however take some time for you to get use to the layout. Even if you have used Casio synths in the past, this one is a bit different than any other model they have ever come out with. That is a good thing though, because the XW-G1 is pretty much the best synth that Casio has come out with in a long time.

SOUNDS

The manual will work out any problems you are having, the only thing you might need the manual for is the effects and sequencing.

OVERALL OPINION

All of the sounds are very realistic, I was really surprised on how good the synths where and even the bass was decent. For the price, this could be one of the best investments you could make in a synth if you are on a 400 to 600 dollar budget. I do not know many other synths that will give you this sound quality and a sequencer for that price range.

Casio XW-G1
I pass the technical description 2000 waveforms and 6 Oscillators adding more personal samples, PCM Melody there for everyone but geared more tearing or electro house cool and well paced or electro 80's in all cases this is done for the club and DJ'S U.S. are not many tubes used in live

UTILIZATION

Yes ... although I've never used before step sequencer and especially the logic of this instrument clear but incomplete in some respects Manuel is better to go on the U.S. forum casio music forum for those whom English is not laying problem. As for editing sounds then it's exciting that we can get out of this instrument leads that tear, the mimick moogs really we are wrong, sounds Oberheim, ARP, etc ...

SOUNDS

Yes it is me and especially pleasantly surprised, very realistic sounds of vintage and grainy sounds I'm not talking about classic sounds but the piano sound is very good my faith in my ear is not Kawai or Pleyel anyway. yes in a mix that is clear

OVERALL OPINION

10 days ... yes it's fresh and old and less old JV1080 with 4 cards Korg PA 50 SD and arranger 03RW and virtual synthesis .. what it lacks is the ability to record their live mixes wav map Sd but apart from that everything is good ... unbeatable value for money for the sound and aesthetic quality somewhat neo retro I bought in England for some 240 euros including shipping is a great deal more than the price of a French small transformer for taking Uk we will not find it cheaper to neuf.Autre thing the U.S. this synth pulls by DJ's who are crazy I've seen and heard live mix los angeles with the XW- G1 and P1 brother was amazing the sound and crazy rhythms and complex damage in France everyone there except me spit on by con side a little cheap but it's tough and design in the good average I'm not ashamed of my casio stage it is well worth a Sylenth1
