Casio XW-P1 Overview

In this overview we cover the features of the Casio XW-P1. The XW-P1 is one of Casio’s latest professional synthesizers and comes loaded with all kinds of cool features. But let’s start with the basics. There are 61 semi-weighted keys on this unit. Two large transpose buttons give you easy access to five different octaves.
