The XW-G1 Groove Synthesizer has 61-standard-size keys and all the functions a club DJ could need all in one slim, streamlined unit. This 6 oscillator monphonic solo synthesizer includes a sample looper, sample player, 13-track step sequencer, 300 fully editable PCM-base sounds, pitch and modulation wheels, as well as USB and MIDI ports.

Solo Synth
The XW-G1 utilizes Casio's exclusive (HPSS) Hybrid Processing Sound Source, a six oscillator monophonic solo synth that is just one of its amazing sound engines. The solo synth has the power to deliver classic analog sounds and sounds with an aggressive edge unlike anything else. Two virtual analog style oscillators, two PCM based oscillators, a noise oscillator and an external oscillator via mic and line inputs can be combined to make up a single solo synth tone. Each oscillator has an independent filter, envelopes, independent key tracking, portamento, two LFOs and access to master resonant filter. With impressive modulation and control capabilities at your fingertips, the solo synth is capable of a wide range of sounds and expression.

Arpeggiator and Phrase Sequencer
In addition to typical arpeggio patterns, the XW-G1's Arpeggiator can create polyphonic synth-gated patterns, acoustic instrument emulations and is even fully programmable, allowing you to create your own unique sounds. An additional phrase sequencer allows you to quickly capture any riff that you play on the keyboard and have it available on a front panel switch or triggered and transposed live from a range of notes on the keyboard. The combination of the Step Sequencer, Arpeggiator and Phrase Sequencer provides an endless array of sound possibilities.

The XW-G1 has 4 realtime controller knobs, pitch bend and modulation wheels, along with 9 sliders to provide control over internal sounds and external devices. Through standard MIDI ports and with a class-compliant USB port, the keyboard can be used as a controller for other instruments, including computer software and iPad-based software applications. It also includes an audio input allowing you to monitor an MP3 player, computer or other device without the need for a mixer.

Step Sequencer
Providing everything from pulsing dance grooves to animated synth textures and arpeggios, the XW-G1's Step Sequencer is the first of its kind. With nine tracks for drums, basses, synths and chordal parts, four controller tracks for adding panning, filter changes and other animation to existing parts and eight patterns make up each sequence, the user can build and mix their performance on the fly. Sequences can even transpose live from the keyboard, providing a completely interactive experience.

Comments about Casio XW-G1 Groove Synthesizer:

I do not write reviews so I'll try to make this easy. First off, its a great synthesizer and I'm glad I bought it. It has great performance and reliability. It has held up very strong for me and I travel with it in a typical carrying bag (I probably should upgrade to a case). Nonetheless, it is light weight and easy to set up. With a memory card I have all my tones set up so I'm not wasting time before gigs. The features really make my sets come alive. I decided to try CASIO among the other popular brands because I know CASIO has been making synthesizers since the 80's. I've owned my XW-G1 for several months and it has proven to be a good choice. To each their own, but I like the red color decor- oppose to another black keyboard. So kudos to CASIO. I'm a happy customer!
