Because the CT-S1000V lacks an alphanumeric keyboard and relies on a fairly low-res monochromatic LCD display for making on-device settings adjustments, entering custom lyrics into the keyboard is done through a smartphone app where text can be either typed or pasted. Once the lyrics are entered, the app automatically breaks up the words into playable syllables and allows users to tweak the pronunciations to get a desired sound. Although the keyboard includes Bluetooth, that’s reserved for MIDI functions, so syncing lyrics from the mobile app to the CT-S1000V requires a physical USB cable connection between the two devices—an odd choice.
