  1. Effect Pedals on XW-P1

    Hello. This is my first post on the forum. First I want to say I'm absolutely loving my XW-P1. I've had it for about a month now and I still feel I haven't scratched the surface but I'm getting there. I've really found the magic of this synth is the ability to dig into it and create Solo Synths and Hex Layers with the raw waveforms. I even used it on a session and created a hex layer pad on the fly that we ended up using on about 3 tunes that called for a unique pad sound. During that session I ran the XW-P1 through a lot of effect pedals. Chorus, flanger, phaser, etc. I'm now considering building a little effect chain to use when I play live. My first purchase was a EHX Lester K, which really puts the organ tone on another level. I'm looking at the Corona Chorus Mini and Flashback Delay Mini pedals from TC Electronic, but before I jump into those I'm planning on getting a Waldorf 2Pole filter. It will fit perfectly on the open area at the right of the keyboard and I think will really add some analog flavor to the hex layers, since the filters there are not resonant. I'm also considering getting an Moog Minifooger MF Boost with expression pedal to use as a swell pedal in conjunction with the Lester K. Does anyone else have any experience running their XW-P1 through pedals or outboard stuff? What advice can you give me? What pedals work great with the Casio? Thanks for reading!
