New Casio CT-S1000V AiX w/ Vocal Synth Pic

Update: video reveal from Kraft Music here

This image popped up on reddit and has since been removed. You can see CTS1000V on the bottom right. It features Casio's AiX Sound Source with Vocal Synthesis. Note the K1/Vocal Type selector knob with Male and Female labels. There are also Lyrics and Instrument Tone Mode Select buttons below the Portamento knob. Lyrics? Some comments on that below. Curious if that portamento works on vocals. On the display you can see [LYRIC/RHY] top left. To the right you can see Tone Advanced, Rhythm, and Registration buttons, and Play/Stop, Tempo, and Record buttons.

See this post for teaser videos from Casio to date.


Visible controls in the pic and some notes/comments:

- Volume knob and power button

- K1/Vocal Type knob ranging from Male to Female (Stepped or smooth transition?)

- K2/Portamento knob (Portamento on vocals? That could be interesting.)

- Home and Menu buttons

- Lyrics and Instrument buttons under a Tone Mode Select section (Lyrics? Curious if you can enter/record phrases. How does it compare to Yamaha's fseqs in the FS1R?)

- Screen/display with 5 buttons and data wheel

- On screen:
Back, Parameter, -,+ mapped to buttons

- Tone button with Advanced LED option
- Rythm and Registration buttons (Registration?)

- Play/Stop, Tempo, and Record buttons
