Update for XW-G1

At the end of last week an update to the Data Editor along with a firmware update for the XW-G1 was posted on Casio’s website.  Looks like the major change is to the “multifunction key” capabilities of the XW-G1.  In addition to it’s other capabilities you can now assign keys on the keyboard to switch patterns.    Check out Casio’s support page for the update –

  1. Nice blog !

    I downloaded the new update for the P1. But…the Mac Program crashed while updating. Now I’m stuck with a non booting XW-P1. I will have to return it to my dealer and I’m very
    disappointed in Casio that they release an update that messes up your synth.

    I hope it won’t take long to repair as I’ve only got it for 10 days or so.

    Just to inform others not to update yet !

      Casio recently changed the updater program on the Mac side so you should be good to go now.

    I can’t get my XW-G1 to accept the firmware update 1.10. On the PC, I get the Not Connected message. On the Mac, I get a message telling me to hook the keyboard to the PC and hit OK.

    I was forgetting to put the XW in UPDATE mode. Thanks for pointing that out on the other forum Mike.

    For anyone else updating their firmware: you have to press the POWER, EDIT and WRITE buttons at the same time to put the XW in UPDATE mode. 🙂

      You will need to contact Casio service. There is no way to fix that yourself.

    Your XW will need to be repaired or replaced.
