Anyone heard anything more about this?

NAMM Leak: It looks like Casio will be announcing a return to the professional synthesizer market at the 2012 NAMM Show.

Reader aymat sent us this image of the Casio XW-P1 Performance Synthesizer. No official specs are available yet on the Casio XW-P1 synth, and the QR code links to a placeholder site.

Casio made a variety of synths and keyboards in the 80′s that could probably be considered ‘cult synths’. Several of their older synths are powerful, but none have achieved the revered status of synths from other companies.

The Casio XW-P1 is rumored to be a “lead and groove oriented hybrid synth” that will be priced around $700. If you click through to the full-size image, you’ll see hints that this may have both virtual analog and organ emulation capabilities.

We’ll have official details as they are announced.

Re: New Casio synth

Thanks for the insta-derail.
I'll rename the thread shall I?

Nord drums eh? Any more info on that? Is it just the percussion section taken from the nord2 and put in a separate unit?

My pleasure. I was actually thinking about a thread rename.
I couldn't find any info on the Nord drum, just a tease.
As for the Casio, I haven't thought about any of their products since the legendary VL-tone, so this one went under my geek radar...

You know those VL-tone's still got for super cheap?
I was thinking about replacing my old PT-30 the other day just for nostalgia and saw they go on ebay for about 30quid.

Edit: I really hope the nord thing is a machinedrum/tempest type of spec machine.
Edit2: but reading around online people seem to think it may just be a drum brain for an e-kit because of this ad.

From what I heard, the Casio thing was looking something like it was going to be a workstation Fantom-type thing.

If so:

Yeah, the CZ1000 was what I consider my first proper synth. Had some classic presets and was a lot more fun with sound diver but not the best synth ever.

Yeah same.
I'm surprised hey haven't done a little range again, what with all the retro 80's stuff lately and a lot of companies getting into smaller/cheaper stuff again.
A VL/PM-1 equivalent or similar. I guess a lot of that stuff just get's done as vst/apps now instead and we sound like old farts?

Re: New synths for 2012

No, exactly nothing like that.
I don't want something that emulates something that was cool when I was 8, I'd like something that does something cool for cheap based on todays technology.

Korg Monotron's are a decent example - and yes I know it's not new tech, but it is very affordable these days. Often we just strive for the new instead of using the full potential of old tech now it's come down in price.

Re: New Hardware for 2012



Just seen this.
I like the fact that it has cv/gate connections and a built in sequencer.
I've not seen those LED sliders before either, but feel that the omission of any knobs at all could be an oversight.

Re: New Music Products for 2012

The new controller from Livid is CNTRL:R, not Quneo...
They both look cool, but I'd rather go for CNTRL:R, but being a Livid product, it might be a bit too expensive to justify.

QUNEO here:

CNTRL:R here

Apparently Arturia is making a full analog synth with keyboard.
