A quick information video of a new bank of sounds, inspired by the Minimoog.
It is such a classic design and sound that is still sought after today. Casio’s XW-P1 and XW-G1 while being a digital synthesizers can do a pretty remarkable job of mimicking those classic Moog sounds. The Minimoog had 3 oscillators plus a noise generator and although the XW has a 4th oscillator in its Solo Synth engine – all of these sounds were crafted with the original in mind. A set of 10 Leads and basses, the specialties of the Minimoog. Separate versions above for the XW-P1 and XW-G1.

Some nice presets dedicated to all people who want to hear them. All sounds played live and are recorded directly without any equalization, other effects or something else…this is the raw DSI Prophet 12 sound. It´s a mix around to define what a modern synthesizer is. Hope you enjoy it.
Sorry for playing some wrong keys
