Just a teaser right now, but we do know this is Casio’s first synthesizer since around 1988. Good to see them back. The XW-P1 is a hybrid Lead and Groove Synth with (according to Keyboard Magazine):
A Mono solo section with up to six oscillators: two virtual analog, two PCM, noise, and external audio. Poly section with wide variety of gig- ready sounds. Drawbar organ mode. Six-way HexTone multis. Nine-track step sequencer with dedicated drum track.
Opinions seem to be mixed since it first leaked on Synthtopia.com, but we do hope it includes Casio's PD Synthesis at the very least, though the inclusion of drawbars does give the impression that its gonna be more in the preset direction. We shall see.
