Casio Xw-P1 Performance  ...Casio – Casio Xw-P1 Performance Synthesizer
Designed with the live setting in mind, the XW-P1 Performance Synthesizer gives you plenty of opportunity to create ear-pleasing sounds with its plethora of preset tones (like the Solo Synthesizer, Hex Layer, and Drawbar Organ), as well as numerous types of internal PCM and Synth waves. There are also multifunction keys that enable you to easily assign the most-desired DJ functions to the keys for simplified operation. The slim, lightweight XW-P1 can run on traditional batteries allow you the freedom to perform on stage, wherever it is and whenever you need to.Solo SynthThe XW-P1 utilizes Casio’s exclusive (HPSS) Hybrid Processing Sound Source, a six oscillator monophonic solo synth that is just one of its amazing sound engines. The solo synth has the power to deliver classic analog sounds and sounds with an aggressive edge unlike anything else. Two virtual analog style oscillators, two PCM based oscillators, a noise oscillator and an external oscillator via mic and line inputs can be combined to make up a single solo synth tone. Each oscillator has an independent filter, envelopes, independent key tracking, portamento, two LFOs and access to master resonant filter. With impressive modulation and control capabilities at your fingertips, the solo synth is capable of a wide range of sounds and expression.HexLayerIn addition to the solo synth, the XW-P1 also features HexLayer tones. A HexLayer is a single sound comprised of up to 6 components, allowing complex layers, splits and velocity switched sounds. The sliders on the XW-P1 can be used to mix sounds on the fly to create evolving pads and rich synth textures while key velocity can be used to create dynamic velocity switched orchestral sounds and more.Drawbar OrganIn addition to the solo synth and HexLayers, the XW-P1 performance synthesizer is armed with an arsenal of gig-ready sounds like stereo pianos, vintage electric61 standard-size keys2 types of touch response6 oscillator monophonic solo synthesizerHexLayer: a single sound made up of 6 components for gig-ready splits and layersDrawbar Organ Mode with 9 sliders, adjustable rotary speaker, key click, vibrato and percussion400 fully editable PCM based sounds like stereo pianos, vintage electric pianos, strings, guitars, drums and more13-track step sequencer16-step programmable ArpeggiatorPitch and modulation wheelsPerformance mode providing 4 internal or external instrument zones with instant recall of effects, Step Sequences, Arpeggiators and Phrases4 realtime controller knobsPhrase sequencer to record and playback your riffsStereo 1/8″ line input to connect an MP3 player, laptop or tabletUSB and MIDI ports1/4″ line outputsIncluded power supplyOperates on 6 D batteries (not included)Battery Life: 35 hours

Korg Monotron Delay Analog Ribbon …

Korg Monotron Delay Analog Ribbon  ...Korg – Korg Monotron Delay Analog Ribbon Synthesizer
Korg’s monotron DELAY is a fun-size analog ribbon synthesizer with a live, ready-to-be tweaked front panel offering five knobs and a single switch. Its Space Delay gives you echo effects that harken the early days of synth, and its simple operation and ease invites hours of enjoyment and musical exploration – all in the palm of your hand.Casual users and people who love to play with gadgets will find it easy to enjoy creating melodies with a simple knob tweak and tapping along the keyboard portion. DJs and established musicians can also use the monotron DELAY to add some dazzling sound effects or pump some analog muscle into their performance. The possibilities are virtually endless.Classic Analog Synth / Space Delay CombinationA good delay was an essential part of the classic analog synthesizer sound. More often than not, that delay came from a tape-style echo machine until affordable digital delays were created. The monotron DELAY is an analog synthesizer optimized for sound effects. In addition to its analog oscillator, filter, and LFO, it also provides a Space Delay that’s indispensable for swooping, cosmic sounds. The monotron DELAY even reproduces the pitch changes that occur when you vary the delay time, just as though you were using an analog tape echo. As with the filter, the delay effect can be added to any external sound via the Aux In jack. This fat and warm delay will add an authentic edge to your analog sounds.Dual-Waveform LFOThe Low Frequency Oscillator (LFO) waveform used to modulate the pitch now offers a choice of waveshapes – a new square wave plus the traditional triangle wave. Both the Rate (Speed) and the Intensity (Depth) can be adjusted independently. In addition, a trimpot on the back panel can continuously adjust the shape/direction of the triangle wave or the pulse-width of the square wave to deliver even more versatility. Used in conjunction with the delay, the LFOSpace Delay with Rate and Intensity controls offers analog-style echoesNew Pitch LFO with selectable Waveshape and Intensity and shape controlsVCF with Cutoff ControlWide-range ribbon controller keyboardOriginal Analog (VCF) Filter taken from the classic MS-10 & MS-20Aux input jack lets you apply filter and delay to any audio sourceBuilt-in speaker and battery power for “go anywhere” analog soundHeadphone jack for private useIncludes owner’s manual

Roland System-1M Plug-Out Synthesizer …

Roland System-1M Plug-Out Synthesizer  ...Roland – Roland System-1M Plug-Out Synthesizer Module
The SYSTEM-1m is a semi-modular synthesizer with PLUG-OUT capability and a unique design that allows it to be used as a Eurorack module, table-top synth, or 19 rack-mount unit. In addition to being a powerful, standalone instrument, the SYSTEM-1m has an array of CV and Gate connections that allow it to be re-patched, and to interface with other modular synthesizer systems. The SYSTEM-1ms CV and Gate connections combined with its ability to load classic Roland synth models like the SH-101 and PROMARS give it a power and flexibility that is simply unparalleled.Modular for the MassesModular synthesizers are highly prized by musicians for their ability to make totally unique and interesting sounds. But they can demand a real investment of both time and money to create a fully functional instrument. The SYSTEM-1m takes the guesswork out of getting into modular with great sounds and the freedom to experiment right out of the box. The fully self-contained module can be placed in a rack or on a table. It can be powered by standard AC power. And it can be played from any standard MIDI keyboard or receive MIDI messages from your DAW. Just like youd expect.But the SYSTEM-1m goes way beyond standard synthesizer modules. With fully-lit, color coded patch points, you can experiment with reconfiguring its architecture and, when you’e ready, easily connect to a wide world of available synthesizer modules. In addition to functioning as a rack-mount or table-top unit, the SYSTEM-1m can be mounted in a standard Eurorack case and can be powered via integrated case power with the included adapter. Its versatile synth architecture integrates beautifully with existing modular setups – or it can be the heart of your first modular synthesizer.A Collection of ClassicsThe SYSTEM-1m is a stunningly powerful instrument based on our more than 40 years of experience in designing synthesizers.
