Using the SoloSynth’s External Input

So Casio’s XW has 6 oscillators…well technically 5 that it can generate.  The sixth comes from an External Source.  On the back of the XW you’ll find mic and line inputs. Anything that is plugged in here can run through the SoloSynth’s engine including envelopes, LFO’s and best of all the Total Filter.

There are countless applications for this.  Just to experiment, plug in an MP3 player, play a song and see what you can do. There is a template built into the XW to get you started, SoloSynth P:9-9 Basic& Mic IN is set up with the External Input active.

My favorite is using the XW with an iPad and an application like AniMoog.  I connect my iPad using the Camera Connection Kit and the XW’s USB port and run the audio output back into the line input.  Then I can layer an AniMoog sound with other sounds from the SoloSynth.  I’ll try to get a video of this up soon.
