Casio's new synth may contain vocoding features, as teased in a new trailer.

The 19-second video shows the synthesiser, which looks to be red and black in colour and is accompanied by a robotic voice saying, "Do you hear the music?" — implying that vocoding abilities will be included.

Casio originally teased the synth in late 2021 with a different short film titled Are You Ready? in which it disclosed that the synth will be powered by Casio's AiX technology, which is also featured in their CT-X keyboards.

Acoustic instruments such as guitars, bass, brass, string ensembles, and others may now be reproduced.
