"Thereminized" Casio SK-1 Videos

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 played it in ages.

But the SK-1 is particularly appreciated by those involved in circuit bending due to its low price and ‘bendability’. If you search eBay you’ll probably find lots of modified SK-1. But a thereminized SK-1 was beyond imagination for me. This is something Clara Rockmore would have not approved.
