A Casio SK-1 sampling keyboard modified in order to be controlled in a way similat to the theremin.

Two “thereminized” Casio SK-1. Something Clara Rockmore would have not approved. The SK-1 is a cheap home keyboard made by Casio in 1985 featuring an 8-bit PCM, 9.38kHz sampler (about 1.4 seconds), 5 PCM presets, 11 drum patterns, an additive synth section, and 13 envelope shapes. I have one and love it, though I haven’t […]
