You can create original tracks, adding your own arrangements by
controlling the sound for each beat with the 16 ON/OFF buttons,
for instance, and by changing notes and velocities in real time
with the 9 sliders. A Chain Function has been added as well to let
track makers link together up to 99 multiple sequence patterns
and play them back in a loop. This permits creation of up to 100
variations on the original patterns.
■ A Phrase Sequencer for call out and playback of
sequential phrases
Built-in resources also feature 100 preset phrases, including

as original phrases.
■ An Arpeggio Function that can be synchronized
with the Step Sequencer
Arpeggio patterns that adopt pressed keys as constituent sounds can be
used for automatic loop playback. This function opens up even more
performance possibilities using the keyboard or Step Sequencer.
■ A Solo Synthesizer that reproduces traditional
analog synthesizer sounds
A total of 100 analog synth tone variations used to dynamic effect
in club music are preset. Performers can also create original tones
by making appropriate use of over 2,000 available waves and
editing their various parameters — a new style of tone creation
that was not possible with conventional analog synthesizers or
analog modeling synthesizers. The tones can be changed freely
during a performance by operating the knobs and sliders.
■ Contemporary sounds dynamically deployed in club music
Various complete Solo Synthesizer tones, from standard synth sounds to highly distinctive sounds, are available.

by sampling a variety of sounds and phrases.
■ A Sample Looper capable of overdubbing
a diverse range of sounds
Performances conducted on the instrument itself as well
as external sounds can be looped for up to 19 seconds
and overdubbed. This feature is useful for creating tracks
to serve as original sound sources. Track makers can use
the Beat mode to record a single-beat sound segment and
repeat it a specified number
of times, the Split mode to
take multiple samples
consecutively in a single
recording, or the OVDB mode
to conduct overlapping
recordings on top of recorded
samples. The Sample Bar
enables you to select the
appropriate mode for any
particular circumstance.
■ A User Wave Tone for saving sampled
sounds as user tones and using them
in various performances
Up to 10 types of sound sources with a maximum of 50
tones prepared using the Sample Looper can be stored (in the Split mode). These tones can be used during a
keyboard performance, for loop playback of Step
Sequencer sequences or as user drum sound sources.
Varying the pitch, filter or amplifier with the dedicated
Envelope Generator is also possible.
Stable, intense sound generated by a newly developed sound engine, the Hybrid Processing Sound Source
The XW incorporates CASIO’s newly developed Hybrid Processing sound engine, which fuses an
LSI sound source with a high-performance CPU and DSP. The resulting varied tones cross the
