Also released is the Casio XW-P1 Performance Synthesiser designed specifically for creating sound and playing expressively in live performance or in the studio. Featuring 620 preset tones including solo synthesiser presets that offer vintage analogue synth sound, Hex layer ensembles sounds and a drawbar organ preset that can be controlled using nine functioning drawbars gives the user a wide array of sounds and effects to play expressively.
