As most of you may know Casio produce pretty decent gear, but as of late their products are really lackluster. I understand the market they are in with their low budget, school friendly musical instruments, but at one point they were attempting to make serious tools like the Casiotone 1000p and the FZ-1 sampler, which mine is getting repaired as I type. I briefly said that to suggest that Casio should delve back into the professional space by creating an all in one production tool that can be used standalone without a computer and in conjunction with a computer. This device's control interface will incorporate a 25 key controller, with a 4x4 velocity/pressure sensitive drum pad and function assignable pitch/modulation wheels. All data and device navigation will be managed with a very responsive 7-10" multi-touch color screen and traditional transport controls. The device will be of a hybrid nature with analog, sampling, FM manipulation capabilities and come with at least 8 gigs of premium Casio sounds. These sounds will also come from key players within the music industry. There will be highly capable master grade effects. The device will have the ability to record audio tracks in a linear fashion exactly like a computer DAW and manipulate this data just like a DAW. The device will have multiple analog/digital input and output options and include high grade microphone pre amps. There will be ample onboard storage and various external storage options. Also the device will use traditional midi input/output and CV control options. Importantly, this device will be very user friendly and not be hindered with an illogical user interface. There's more to include so this will be ongoing. Casio this is a super premium product and will be expected to retail anywhere around $1500-$2500 US dollars. This will not be a product marketed to the home/ school segment but rather to the professional studio market. Will chime in again when time permits.
