XW-G1 Groove Synthesizer description:

The Casio XW-G1 Groove Synthesizer keyboard is designed with today's DJ in mind, incorporating step and phrase synthesizers, hands-on control and a sample looper.

The Casio XW-G1 can create and play back a variety of rhythm patterns and musical phrases, all in a single unit. Users can enjoy playing an all-in-one instrument that enables control of cool sounds via sets of nine sliders, 16 Step Sequencer buttons and four assignable knobs arranged on the left side of the top panel.

Rhythmic patterns can be sequenced end-to-end to create entire songs and grooves and then be manipulated in real time with the set of 16 buttons. The phrase sequencer lets users create and play back musical phrases that spice up DJ performances, and up to 100 musical phrases can be spontaneously played on the keyboard and be stored in memory as user phrases.

The sample looper in the Casio XW-G1 digitally records any sound and this can be overdubbed to build up complete grooves with ease. Sampled sounds that are saved as user tones can be played in keyboard performances and looped to create original on-the-fly music. 420 preset tones including Solo Synthesizer and PCM tones can be quickly accessed in keyboard performances and the arpeggiator can automatically spice up melodies just by pressing keys.

Review:
Incredible value for money. I have kept a close eye on this product since first launch and could no longer resist with the deal on offer at Digital Village. The 61 key XW-G1 connects to iPad, it has a computer editor, multitrack sequencer, sampler, looper and VA synth.

Nothing else currently offer so much for this money. Brilliant!!

Review:
I may be a bit influenced by the price. This has a lot of useful features. which are well presented in terms of accessibility. The rubbery slot is very helpful to put a Tenori-On.
I plan to use it as a general controller keyboard for external hardware and for performances on windows software using the Proteus VX as I have a lot of Emu Banks.
It will be quite easy to play solo or split patches on channel 1-4 from the G1 and run additional accompaniment from the tenori on on channels 5-7 as i plan not to enable those on the G1. I will sometimes use the 8-12 to sequence drums using sampled
drums in the Proteux as replacements. It seems to me I could get very good synth sounds from the G1 itself using the software editor but for the moment I will be more occupied with
tweaking my dsi prophet and mopho modules.

Review:
Great synth, just what I need, easy to get tunes out of it and I have little experience with playing. Good value for money as well the price is well below other countries prices. Just buy one you won't regret it.
