Casio Music UK has been recognised with a “Product Excellence Award” for its CT-S1000V, the first vocal synthesiser that can literally turn text – such as song lyrics – into a musical phrase and then “sing” it in full harmony based on any notes played on its keys.

The prestigious award was presented by Music Inc., a leading magazine serving the music products industry. Each year, Music Inc. surveys hundreds of retailers and suppliers looking for the companies and products that innovated and expanded the industry over the past 12 months. This year, only 10 products, five suppliers and five retailers were chosen for the annual honour.

The esteemed accolade makes it Casio’s fourth Music Inc. Product Excellence Award since 2011. The company previously won awards for its CGP-700 Compact Grand Piano (2015), Grand Hybrid Piano (2016) and Privia PX-S3000 Digital Piano (2019).Casio CT-S1000V-Front

Neil Evans, Head of Casio EMI, commented: “This award is testament to the continuous innovation we strive for at Casio Music. We’re grateful to receive this award and thankful for the unwavering support we have from our retailers and professionals across the music product industry. Thanks to its Vocal Synthesis technology, the CT-S1000V delivers a musical experience like no other, and we are excited for it to inspire a new generation of music makers.”

The full roster of award recipients will be featured in the April issue of Music Inc.

The CT- S1000V is available to purchase now for RRP £429, at music instrument retailers nationwide.
