On my never-ending quest to find the perfect sampling synth, I ran across the Casio XW series which is fairly new from what I've seen. I think ideally I would grab the Roland V-Synth before I would even give these Casios a chance. I mean, they are Casios so I kind of discount it just for being from a company that I haven't seen sell any high performance synthesizers, let alone samplers.
I went here:

It says that it has a sample looper and sample "player"... What I ideally want to do is import my samples into the keyboard and run those through all the same filters and envelopes as if it was a built-in ROM sound.
Any thoughts? I'm about 80% sold on the V-Synth, but these Casios look kind of fun. Any thoughts on either? BTW, I'm going for the industrial/EBM/Noise type sound (that's why my user name is "skinny puppy" ).
