Casio, which just announced its main product to start 2022 off right, is falling in line this year. The Casiotone CT-S1000V is a 61-key voice synthesizer with plenty of features for playing.

Casiotone CT-S1000V users can program words and phrases using a smart device, which the instrument then maps to any note or chord played on the keyboard. On a smartphone, the player uses Casio’s free MusicSpace app to create the word or phrase combinations they want. The CT-S1000V picks them up automatically using an included Bluetooth adapter, which can then be played instantly. Additionally, these phrases can be triggered by each note pressed from the beginning of each phrase or split by vowels.
Musicians can browse the presets and all the additional features of the CT-S1000V all using the main screen front and center. On the side, a wheel helps even more with this navigation. The latest Casiotone synth comes preloaded with 800 different voices to choose from, all customizable by parameters such as key and age. A selection of vintage instruments can also be loaded for instrumental accompaniment to synthesized vocals in real time. When everything is ready, a six-track sequencer is ready to capture your recordings and store them internally.
The Casiotone CT-S1000V will be available soon, priced at just $449. Considering everything he brings to the table, this is incredible value.
