I love it...
by Jeremy from AlabamaI got this because I wanted and organ/Leslie sound, but since I'm not a full-time keyboard player, I didn't have the budget for Hammond/Nord/Korg family of keyboards. I got this about 6 months ago and... read more [+] I think it's just perfect for what I do (normally play bass, but also keys sometimes). I don't use the synth lead much, but the sounds there are pretty good. Hex layer is awesome or terrible (depending on selection), and I rarely use the sequencer, but a friend who has played with this and can make better use of it says it's pretty good. I DO use the tremolo piano and drawbar organ, and they sound great, even in a pro/band situation. This is not one of the "toy" Casios of yesteryear. Probably not quite enought for a pro key player, but for the occasional like myself the price for performance is great. close [-]

great synth for live gigging
by Wallace Billingham from Silver Spring, MDThis is a great synth for live gigging. I love the fact that unlike my Motif I do not feel like I need a forklift to move it around. It lightweight and easy to carry and move.

The facto... read more [+]r sounds are Ok but once you start messing around with the sounds it is amazing what it can crank out. The step sequencer is a joy to use and quite fun.
I also love the rubber pad on the right hand side. For live gigging this is very handy for either a small mixer or a midi controller. In my setup I use this for a Novation Launchpad which fits there perfectly.
All in all I am not sure how Casio was able to pull this off for the price point but this is a steal of the year.
I would also like to thank Mark Maxwell my sales engineer for once again giving me great service before and after the sale. Once again Sweetwater is the best! close [-]
by Mark King from Columbus, OhForget whatever you might think of the name Casio. I took a chance and I'm blown away. This is an amazing board. Choose one feature and it is well worth the $499.

The factory presets are ok, but ITS A SYNTH you won't believe the sounds you can get out of this thing. close [-]

My favorite part of the Casio XW-P1 is the sequencer. Without any training, I had beats kicking and bassline bumping. Patch changing is simple, editing parts is a breeze, and learning the more in-depth in and outs takes no more than 15 minutes. The extreme ease of use is inspiring, the synth sounds are more than adequate for even the synth elite, the price is ridiculously low, and the fun factor is off the charts. This is not only a synth/sequencer for beginners, it's also a must-have for the old-school Casio drum machine and synth enthusiasts.
