Quotes

Mike Martin, General Manager, Marketing, Electronic Musical Instruments Division

“The XW series are not just new keyboards, they represent a new direction for Casio in the musical instrument business.”

“Casio’s formula of value and quality that has been the foundation of award winning instruments like Privia has been applied to a new product category, and the XW-P1 and XW-G1 are just the beginning.”

“The solo synth has an incredibly deep and powerful design. Among countless others, the oscillators even have access to waveforms from Casio’s original CZ synthesizers. It can create a variety of classic analog sounds, but also has the power to deliver sounds with an aggressive edge.”

‘Everyone is going to be surprised by the expressiveness and range of sounds the solo synth can create, but that is just one aspect of these products.’”
