Strange Studio Stuff
I recently acquired this in a shady deal behind the Rijswijk
The Casio CK500 "Electronic Musical Instrument" is a
1980s casio keyboard with a double tapedeck and a SW/FM radio
and one of the few keyboards with an antenna
The cool thing is that you can overdub tracks on the double
Record blankets of casio woolleyness on a tape, put that tape in
tapedeck and record yourself playing over the stuff you taped
and record that again too on the recording tapedeck. Etcetera...
After a while you will so much tape disintegration that
ieeriely strange and vaguely interdimensional
This overdubbing business is a bit in theory because the
tapedecks 'wow' and play
speeds are so different in each one that you get problems with
being in tune.
Strangely you can't play they keyboard when the radio is on, you
first record it on the tapedeck and then play over it...
The keyboard part is quite basic, 12 preset sounds that sound
characteristic and warm but at the same time very infantile,
plastic but overall, SINISTER.
You can't change much in the sounds, if nothing at all
you can put vibrato, sustain and reverb over it.
There is a drumsection too with some cool analogue-esque rhythm
box sounds and
accompaniement bass patterns with a variety of preset rhythms.
The cassette recorder is of such worn out quality that you can
for ultimate crappy tape mastering. Instant smacked out extreme
NOISY minimal wave
vibes and tons of fun, though the novelty wears of quick.
Here are some demo songs made with this keyboard (and some
FX in some tracks such as the, yet unreleased, SMACKOS SPACE
Download them all in a zip with some hot pix of the Casio here
