  1. Cover Band Keyboard Requirements

    Hello Casio Forums, I have been playing my XW-G1 live with a cover band for the last three years. I play half our sets on the synth and half on guitar. Does anyone use a personal mixer to tweak sound live? What set up do you use live to get a great stereo BEST QUALITY Sound? I have noticed live that I am constantly battling different performances on volume, depending on tones, i.e. brass, bass, piano, analog sounds. Is there a way I can "set it and forget it?" My brass sounds all sound full of treble with little mid range or bass. I bought my board used off ebay. Sometimes I think there may be an issue with oscillators or something internally that is giving me a different quality than what I hear on Youtube from you professionals. I am very picky about sound and want to sound the best possible. Willing to spend some money to do so and would like to keep using my XW-G1 live. Thanks for advice! Geoff the PowerTrader
  2. Is it possible to create a tone using different oscillators and saving it so it may be used on more than one note at a time? As in a chord or in multiple zones or both? I am the world's slowest learner and admit that I do not understand much about programming tones and getting the most of them. Appreciate help. Geoff the PowerTrader
  3. Any suggestions on how to create and trigger the bomb sound from the great Gap Band song "You Dropped a Bomb on Me"? Also, would LOVE to hear how to create the rising sound on Bruno Mars' Uptown Funk. I created a tone for that and at the moment do not even remember how I did that. It isn't even close to the recording sound though. Many thanks to any support! Geoff the PowerTrader
  4. Can anyone help this rookie XW-G1 programmer with coming up with a sound much like Prince used for songs like "Kiss" and Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk", "That's what I like" and "24K"? I cannot come close. My polysynth stuff sounds very trebly and am radio'ish. Would truly appreciate help. Thanks! Geoff the PowerTrader
  5. Has the XW-G1 been discontinued?

    I was looking to buy a 2nd XW-G1 and no one has them available. Has the XW-G1 been discontinued or is there a delay in production or what's going on? A new product announcement at NAMM?
  6. Hi everyone, I'd like to share my trombone user wave file with you. I needed the trombone sound, but the GM does not sound very good, so I had to make this custom .ZWT file. I've used sounds from Kontact's banks - Trombone v3 and Trumpet 1.1. The trombone samples are tied to a low 3 octaves and the trumpet samples are tied to a high 2 octaves (limitation of real instrument's range made me use trumpet for high notes). But there were difficulties with looping the samples: when it was repeated I've heard clicks. I've found the necessary points for looping without clicks in the audio editor, but I could not specify them in the Data Editor or in the synthesizer menu - click still appeares. Therefore, I took the maximum possible duration for each of the 5 audio files (the limitation of the duration is probably related to the limited memory size) and used them without looping. That was enough for me in that case. If someone have a better version of trombone/trumpet user wave please share with me. Also I would appreciate if someone could fix looping issue in this file or point me how it could be done without clips and cracks. WBR, Dmitriy Tromb+Trump.ZWT
  7. Hi everyone, I realize I'm late to the party, just picked up a second-hand XW-G1 for a great price. I'm adding this synth to the stable which also includes a Roland JD-XA, Arturia MatrixBrute, MicroKorg, and Korg MicroSampler. Already love this machine, one thing I have to say is the display is a bit of an odd duck, but I will get used to it, seems much easier to work with the step sequencer than I thought. Anyway I hope there will still be people reading and posting here to keep the knowledge flowing, I have found a lot of useful info on the forum on old posts already so thanks!
  8. I was building a performance containing tone 288 and two others. Tone 288 is a VA tone with a drop and rise at the end which continuous as long as the keys are hold. I like the first segment of that tone and tried to cut the rest of by editing it and make the release long enough before that typical part comes to bit and have the release draw it short how I wanted it. But while editing that tone the release holds good on +00 to 64+ until, trying to get it short while setting value's from -00 to -64 it keeps the full play from beginning to the end of sample where I would expect the tone to be just long enough as the release to be. Nothing happens the value's only seem to work from +00 up to 64+. Is that how far editing a tone gets to be or is there a fault at work. I do have a work around containing arpeggio and step sequencer but it makes that tone monophonic which I don't want.
  9. Whatever sound your trying to make Vintage or EDM Solo-synth or Performance if you want the sound to break through, the mix when using the sample looper or Daw don't make any use of the EQ unless there are certain frequency needed balancing it in the mix. Just my two cents of tips.
  10. Fun themed jolly's.

    A performance patch called Trap&Bass available in download. I merely did this not knowing what would turn out but I wanted it sounding Big and yes the XW-G1 is capable of creating Big Sounds. Deleted the last one his one more fun.
  11. Queens solo-synth Break Free. View File First attempt to create synth sound from "Queens Break-Free" Queen allegedly used Oberheim OB synth to create this, The G1 has Oberheim samples for both the synth and PCM parts within the solo-synth. For the synth part its 0087 - 0101 For the PCM part its 1767 - 1781 I've tried to figure out how to make that rich fat sound but I can't identify it yet. However I've found using sample 0046 MG Square L for synth part a better option to come close at it. So I'm guessing its a square wave and now have to figure out how to fatten it up and to make the sound glide down. maybe using portamento but a single stroke from the last note going down a few octaves also work.

  15. Oscillator Shaping - RavingPundit View File This is an example for using Oscillator Shaping on the XW. Install it on a free user slot, assign solo-synth to zone 1 and don't forget to add the custom arpeggio also in a free slot. Its a rave synth btw :-) very addictive to play with.

    A jam session with the G1 its an inspirational machine one moment you trying out sounds the next an idea for a song comes up.
  18. Hi all, Can anyone pls help me whether casio xw-g1 can be used for live performance or it can be used for only DJ's.. Actually i couldnt able to set sound banks in this as like we do in normal casio keys... pls help in this
  19. I've been up and jamming again solely with the XW-G1.
  20. I just purchased the XW-G1. After powering on the unit, the volume is very low. For example, with the master volume turned to max (i.e., 10), the sound remains at min (i.e., 1). I cannot tell if there's a problem with the instrument or if there's a setting that needs to be adjusted. The troubleshooting entries in the manual does not seem to address this issue. Can anyone offer suggestions to remedy this problem? Thanks for your help. Imanji
  21. XW-G1 45 Performance Sound Sets

    XW-G1 45 Performance Sound Sets View File Sounds created to record and play with the Looper, They are also new sounds for the G1. This will get gradually filled up with more Performance sounds I've intentionally created to record loops with the looper but as I've later discovered the standard step sequence are great joy also for these patches. Hope you'll like some of them and be free to edit and make you're own from these. Submitter XW-Addict Submitted 03/08/2016 Category XW-G1

  23. About Step Sequencer

    Well, I've try to do a little routine with the step sequencer... just to use User waves instead of common instruments. The problem is now to export it to my DAW. I can record the pattern in WAV mode... This is OK. But, If I want to export the sequence in Midi mode ? Is it possible ? Even if there's only the note...
  24. Hello, I've received last week my XW-G1 ! I live in a little french tropical Island near Mauritius Island named La Réunion, so, the XW-G1 arrived by postal. When I received it, some keys were blocking a little so I decided to open the XW-G1 to see what's the problem. the white grease was absent in some places. I've seen that a little yellow wire was not welded, near the battery compartment. If someone could tell me why this yellow wire is not welded... Otherwise, the XW-G1 works perfectly ! It's a very powerful machine. I love it !
  25. Hi everyone, New to the forum and first time posting. I am trying to assign midi channels to control the midi send and receive on specific channels so I can mix external synth sounds with the G1 when using the step sequencer. There is a midi chart which makes it look straight forward but I can not find the settings in the synth. Also I always get midi channel one playing the (the solo synth) no matter what number the basic midi channel is set to. Hoping someone can advise. Many thanks Gabe
