This is an excellent entry-level keyboard. It has a good collection of voices and features such as the sequencer and arpeggiator. The drawbar organ emulator is worth the price of the keyboard. The piano voices are a little weak. If you already have a pro-quality keyboard, this won't add much.
After watching all the videos from NAMM, I pulled the trigger and I just received a XW-P1 a few days ago. I admit that at first I wasn't so sure about it, but things thing has blown me away. I can't remember the last time I had so much fun with a synth.
Ok, let's start by telling my story on how I ended up buying this beauty. I had a Yamaha MX 61 which I played every day until some crooked hominids broke in my house and took it with the rest of my musical toys (acoustic and electric guitars, Tascam recorder, etc.....)Anyways....
Played a wedding with the xw-p1 this past Saturday in a five piece band. After having several practices with it and getting my settings configured, I had everything set and ready for the show and it went very smooth.
Superb concept, but ... I am unable to match tone quality as seen in online video clips. Especially as concerns ORGAN sounds. Bought Ventilator 2, and still unable to match demo clip of Casio XW-P1 Organ with ventilator.
This is an instrument that works as synthesizer, organ and rompler, but the highlight is the synthesizer mode. I use it as synthesizer only, just to mention. And I think there's no easier way to edit sounds in real time than the one found on this instrument.
This small casio offer quite possible especially considering its price, modeling convincing analog synth and several banks of sounds that cover most of the needs in various styles, of course it is not the level of a pattern such that I have, but it's clean you can edit sounds so simple.
You simply can't review this keyboard fairly without consideration of its low price. It is NOT a first-tier, pro-quality keyboard. Most of the presets are cheesy, the color scheme is questionable, and unless you put the D batteries in (!!!) it's light as a feather.
The Casio XW-P1 is a synthesizer that is more designed for live use, but can be used in a studio or at home for playing and practicing with. The Casio XW-P1 has a 6 oscillator monophonic solo synth on it that creates some amazing tones effortlessly.
Wasn't too thrilled with this one. Sold it after a week and got the Korg Microstation instead. MUCH better keyboard!
