Strange Studio Stuff - The Casio CK500


I recently acquired this in a shady deal behind the Rijswijk central station
The Casio CK500 "Electronic Musical Instrument" is a
1980s casio keyboard with a double tapedeck and a SW/FM radio build in
and one of the few keyboards with an antenna

The cool thing is that you can overdub tracks on the double cassette recorder=
Record blankets of casio woolleyness on a tape, put that tape in the player
tapedeck and record yourself playing over the stuff you taped earlier...
and record that again too on the recording tapedeck. Etcetera...
After a while you will  so much tape disintegration that things become
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 could, ofcourse,
first record it on the tapedeck and then play over it...

The keyboard part is quite basic, 12 preset sounds that sound vaguely
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 actually...
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 use it
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 outboard
FX in some tracks such as the, yet unreleased, SMACKOS SPACE EXPANDER
reverberation system)

(wobbled ambient atmospheres)

(I kind off really like that electric piano sound)

(Some nice organs and complete tape disintegration)

(overdubbed on the tape a couple of times)

(sleazy sensual rhythmbox sounds)

Download them all in a zip with some hot pix of the Casio here
